About me

I started my own practice with an eye to helping people with problems.  Bankruptcy and debtor law is one of the most direct ways that I can fix some of the most pervasive and complex issues that my clients face. 

I pride myself on giving each client personal service and attention.  My goal is to address their goals in any case and try to tailor the plan of action to achieve those goals, be that through bankruptcy or non-bankrptcy alternatives.
