I have been an attorney for 30 years. I believe that an attorney should be competent and also compassionate and understanding of the problems facing his or her clients.

I like being able to lower the stress level and pain in my clients' lives. Before they come to see me, clients are often under a barrrage of phone calls, day and night, from bill collectors. Some are being sued in court for unpaid bills. Almost all wish they could pay the bills but they cannot. The resulting stress often pushes marriages to the breaking point. I believe that kids are sensitive ... view profile

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.
