About Me

I strive to effectively communicate with my clients, both listening carefully to what they want out of a case and in illustrating their options and recommendations, and to communicate throughout the case on any questions or concerns the clients may have.

    Mr. Ruiz-Velasco was my partner for the Conrad B. Duberstein Competition. Together, we crafted an appellate brief for which we received an award for "outstanding brief" being recognized among almost 50 competing schools from around the country. Mr. Ruiz-Velasco was a pleasure to work with and he demonstrated a sharp acumen for bankruptcy related issues. He is well-versed in all bankruptcy matters, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with him again in the future.

    I interned with Mr. Ruiz-Velasco at the US Trustee's Office. He is diligent and works hard to educate himself on the law before he undertakes any work. He is patient, considerate, and a fine lawyer. I highly recommend him to all potential debtors.
