About Me

I am a bankrupcty lawyer serving San Francisco and the greater Bay Area.


I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, and I earned my law degree at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco.  While in law school, I was Articles Editor at the Hastings International and Comparative Law Review, and I graduated in 2006. 


I spent my first two years practicing antitrust/consumer protection law on behalf of consumers.  In 2008 I opened my own offices to continue my work for consumers, now focusing on bankruptcy. 


I would be happy to speak with you if you are considering bankruptcy, and will explain the pros and cons to you.  Initial consultations are free of charge.
