About Me

Every day I see clients who are facing the most tragic financial circumstances they will ever encounter in their entire life. Generally, using the bankruptcy process, I can make an enormous difference. But to a client who is sitting in my office contemplating bankruptcy, a bankruptcy discharge, and debt freedom seem very far away. I understand this and can tell you there are much more important things than debt, or even money for that matter. I enjoy getting out in my Jeep and taking my son fishing as often as I can. Now, with a new daughter added to my home, I think my son's going to have some fishing competition. My advice to all my clients is to let the attorneys deal with the debt and creditors. Your time with your family and friends is decisively more important.
