About me

I represent consumers, and provide a full-spectrum representation:


  • Bankruptcy. I help with Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13

  • Consumer law - collection agency abuse defense, consumer fraud, FDCPA, FCRA, TCPA, Rosenthal

  • Civil Litigation


I'm a non-stuffy lawyer who fights hard for my clients. I treat each case as though it were my own, and I want to make people's lives easier by helping.
