About Me

My family and I enjoy living in Southern California. We have ready access to both the ocean and the mountains.  I'm an early adopter of technology and, according to my wife, I'm focused on reading just about every newspaper I can get my hands on (electronically, that is).  I enjoy the practice of law and a life of learning.


Bankruptcy law is my passion.  I am blessed to live in a world of ideas that help those in need.
