About Me

Money problems have a significant effect on people's lives.  We realize that at my firm and we work hard to make life easier for folks who are in debt.


 


Most people who are burdened by debt feel helpless - even hopeless - but I have been a bankruptcy attorney for over 30 years and I can tell you that there is a solution to your problems.


I offer a free consultation, so come on in and see for yourself.  We do not take any short cuts at my firm.  I will spend whatever time it takes with you to find the best solution to your problems.  


 


In addition to bankruptcy and debt settlement, I file lawsuits against debt collectors who break the law and that happens a lot more often than you might think.  Even if you owe the money, creditors have to abide by the law.  A lot of collectors violate the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) because they collect a lot of money by harassing people beyond the limits of what the law allows.  For instance, they cannot call you on your cell phone without your prior  written consent.  They can't threaten you.  They can't use profanity.  There are many more restrictions on what they can and cannot do and I will evaluate your case for violations and take your case to court if I find any.  


 


People who have money problems often feel shame.  If you think you're alone, look around.  Today's economy has affected people from all walks of life.  Your friends.  Your neighbors.  Your relatives.   You.


 


I'll help you restore your life, your credit, your peace of mind and, most of all, your dignity.  


 


Even the Bankruptcy Code says you're entitled to a "fresh start".  I'm here to help you get one.
