About me

I am a New York native.  I spent much of my youth growing up in the mid-Hudson Valley and have lived in all 5 boroughs (including Staten Island) and outlying counties as well. 


Before becoming an attorney, I was a bankruptcy paralegal for several years and put myself through law school in the evening while working full-time.  After law school, I was a law clerk for the Chief Judge of the Manhattan bankruptcy court for 2 years. 


After my clerkship, I practiced bankruptcy law at two New York law firms with nationally renowned bankruptcy practices for nearly 10 years.  My overall experience has enabled me to learn how law is made from various viewpoints. 


I have appeared before all of the metropolitan New York bankruptcy courts (as well as others throughout the country) and am familiar with New York bankruptcy practice.


Currently, I have my own practice primarily representing debtors and creditors in bankruptcy proceedings.
