Bankruptcy is not a last resort. It is a start to a new financial future.
I grew up in New Hampshire and after serving in the Army and overseas for four years, I returned home to pursue my undergraduate degree with help from the GI Bill. I moved to New Jersey after college to work for a mortgage lending company. I eventually started my own mortgage company but grew dissatisfied with the profession. I saw firsthand how the industry was giving loans to people who had no means to ever repay the debt. I knew things were going to get bad and decided I was going to be ready when it did.
I went to law school at night while supporting my family during the day. Upon graduation I sold my company and started my new carrear in law. I have limited my practice to insolvency matters – which includes Bankruptcy, Assignments for the Benefit of Creditors, receiverships, etc. I don’t dabble in areas of law I don’t know well (and wish other attorneys would not dabble in Bankruptcy).
I have a passion for what I do. There are few things I enjoy more than helping good people and viable businesses find solutions to overwhelming debt.
