About me

Hello!  I am a bankruptcy attorney that has had many experiences in life which help me to understand the debt situation that many people have.  I have been in deeply in debt in the past and I have had two businesses that i had to run. 

I was a licensed contractor for years in California and I had a furniture store that went broke years ago.  I know how hard it is to run a business and make it work and how much debt one can incur doing so.

I also understand personal household debt that can be acquired when someone has little income to pay the bills and the interest on the borrowed money.
