About Me

I proudly help consumers obtain bankruptcy relief under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. I have been practicing law for 19 years and my practice is limited to bankruptcy to ensure that I provide only the very best representation to my clients. I strive to be compassionate and sensitive to the many issues and emotions faced by my clients in order to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. I personally handle each and every aspect of each and every case, and all clients deal with me and only me throughout the entire process. Providing this one-on-one, personalized, attentive service is my first priority, and this includes making myself available seven days per week via telephone and email.
