About Me

My law practice focuses  exclusively on bankruptcy law, handling cases all over the State of California in the Northern, Eastern and Central districts.  I began preparing bankruptcies approximately 18 years ago and have been a licensed attorney handling bankruptcy cases before the United States Bankruptcy Court for more than 15 years.  My goal is to make bankruptcy affordable for my clients, who I know are already facing tremendous financial challenges.  I also strive to be accessible to my clients, and handle their cases expeditiously in a caring and sensitive environment.  I will hold your hand throughout the process, making it as painless and understandable as possible.
