About me

What I have learned in 39 years of practicing bankruptcy law is that all people have their ups and downs. Many people forget their own personal worth and lifelong accomplishments when being barraged by life’s difficulties.


I have also learned that most people, at the core, are really the same: they want to go to work, pay their bills, and enjoy time with their family. When temporary financial difficulties upset this balance, stress levels increase, sometimes becoming unbearable.


It gives me great personal and professional pleasure to help my clients eliminate the causes of stress; restore their personal balance; and provide them with a sense of peace and hope for the future.
