Affordable representation for consumer debts, bankruptcy, foreclosures, divorce, and business issues
Clients are surprised that I answer my own phones, but that is the kind of attorney that I want to be. I like to craft clever solutions for debt, matrimonial or business problems. I have offices in 3 states and run around a lot, but when you retain me, you get me.
Bankruptcy law is more than filling out petitions - you deal with people's lives and futures. Most of my bankruptcy caseload is debtor oriented, but I do represent creditors when fraud is an issue.
Foreclosure defense can be frustrating because the servicers can make more money from a sheriff sale than from a workout, so they seldom cooperate.
Divorce law is tough and takes an emotional toll on everyone. I prefer to settle issues rather than just run up billable hours in stalemates, but when I have to fight, I fight. In litigation, my philosophy is that you can get more out of it by using a scalpel rather than a hammer.
The hardest part of my job is watching adults break down and cry in my office and the best part of my job is seeing the physical change in a client when they walk out of court with a successful result - you can actually see the weight come off of their shoulders.
