While attending Law School, I served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Kathleen P. March, United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Central District of California, Los Angeles Division. It was during my externship, that my interest in the debtor/creditor relationship and finding ways to resolve issues between the two first arose. Since then, I have focused my practice solely on bankruptcy, insolvency, debt negotiation/settlement for both debtors and creditors.
I am admitted to practice before the United States District and Bankruptcy Courts for the Southern, Central, Eastern and Northern Districts of California and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and have appeared before many of the Bankruptcy Judges in each District. I have also successfully briefed and argued matters before the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, District Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
My published opinions include: ACIC v. Kronemyer (In re Kronemyer) 405 B.R. 915 (BAP 9th Cir. 2009); Cohen v. Tran (In re Tran) 309 B.R. 330 (BAP 9th Cir. 2004); Soderlund v. Cohen (In re Soderlund) 236 B.R. 271 (BAP 9th Cir. 1999).
