About Me

I am a creditor-debtor attorney at heart.  I have spent my entire career working in this area of law on both the creditor and consumer side.  This has given me a perspective that makes me more effective than attorneys who handle only one or the other side.  If you need assistance, either for creditors or debtors rights, give me a call and see how I can help put my experience on your side.
