I enjoy working with clients in helping them find solutions to their financial problems. I get to know all of my clients and develop a professional relationship. No two cases are alike. It's one of the best feelings in the world when I send my client a letter at the conclusion of the case, letting them know that now they are - debt free. I feel very fortunate that I get to help people for a liv... view profile

Since 1980, my practice has been limited to Business Bankruptcy. I regularly represent Debtors in Chapter 11 cases, and ordinarily confirm Plans of Reorganization. I represent creditors in bankruptcy and insolvency cases. I also represent landlords, including a NYSE REIT, in bankruptcy cases throughout the country. I pride myself on innovative strategies and responsiveness.
A bankruptcy attorney can help you manage personal or business debts you are unable to pay. Bankruptcy laws allow people and businesses to (1) get a “fresh start” by relieving most debts; and (2) repay the money owed to all creditors as fairly as possible. When you file for bankruptcy protection, all other legal actions against you are put on hold. Creditors cannot sue you, garnish your wages, repossess your car or home entertainment system, or start or continue with a foreclosure action against your home. There are different types of bankruptcy filings and each has its own advantages. Since bankruptcy can significantly impact your future purchasing power and credit rating, you should see a bankruptcy attorney to make sure the benefits of filling bankruptcy outweigh the consequences.
