About Me

I am a consumer bankruptcy and consumer rights attorney. In particular, I represent individuals and families in Chapters 7 and 13 bankruptcies and in adversary proceedings. I also litigate through trial consumer protection matters, including debt collections abuses, foreclosure and mortgage related issues, adverse credit reporting, and other consumer protection violations. Prior to starting my own law firm, I worked at a Seattle bankruptcy boutique, where I headed the consumer litigation practice, and also had the pleasure to serve as Law Clerk to the Honorable Justice Tom Chambers. Also, I co-authored the Washington State Bar Association Civil Procedure Deskbook and a manual for the Washington State Minority and Justice Commission titled Building a Diverse Court: A Guide to Recruitment and Retention, and have presented at various CLEs. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering for efforts that support the economically and socially vulnerable, including CENTS (the Consumer Education & Training Services) Board and King County Bar Association’s Make Change! program.

    Tonie (Antoniette) and I worked very closely on a recent bankruptcy case and won at trial. I have also worked with Tonie in many other capacities and know her to be a tireless advocate for her clients. Tonie is very sharp, highly skilled in her practice area, and very approachable. I thoroughly endorse her and recommend her as a valuable resource to the local legal community and to clients seeking a world-class litigation attorney.
