About Me

Helping people is at the core of why I decided to practice law. Although I believe people are pretty smart and well informed, knowing and understanding the law can be tough. It’s hard enough for people to deal with these financially trying times, let alone having to try to deal with them alone. Practicing Bankruptcy and Personal Injury law allows me many opportunities to step in and help people who would be left to deal with problems they’re simply not qualified to deal with.

Every client and every case is important. Foreclosures have been stopped, homes have been saved and excessive credit card debt has been wiped away for hundreds of clients. Filing bankruptcy has allowed people to have the new start they need and deserve. We take Personal Injury cases as personally as you do, and will fight for you to recover the maximum amount of damages available under law.
