A lifelong resident of Maine, I graduated from Bowdoin College summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa where I met my wife, Carrie McGilvery, a Yarmouth native. I briefly pursued a career before attending Boston College Law School. There, I was a writer for the Uniform Commercial Code Reporter Digest.
After law school, I returned to Maine, where I have practiced exclusively in the fields of consumer and small business bankruptcy and consumer law in Saco, later in Auburn, and for the past five years, in Portland.
I pride myself on offering one-on-one communication with my clients, at a low cost. Many bankruptcy lawyers divide up the work between the partner, associates and paralegals. However, I have found that practice makes my clients uneasy. When you call me for a free consultation, you can be assured that they will meet with me. We will discuss all of the options available, whether you are facing a foreclosure, consumer law issue, or debt management issue. We will work with you to determine the best course of action, whether that is seeking a loan modification, mediating a foreclosure, pursuing debt settlement, debt consolidation (unfortunately, I don’t offer this service, but will put you in touch with someone who does), or Chapter, 7, 11, 12, or 13 bankruptcy. When there are court hearings, I will be the lawyer attending them, and I do my very best to answer all emails and calls personally. I find that having one person follow a case from start to finish enables that person to better represent his clients and gives the clients a sense of security in a very stressful situation.
We have not found any instances of professional misconduct for this lawyer.
