About me

My firm is relatively young, having been formed in 2007. Currently, I am a solo practitioner, so all clients deal directly with me. It is my philosophy, though, that every client should have a relationship with his or her attorney. As such, even after my support staff grows, I will remain active and accessible to all clients.

By being a solo practitioner, I am able to develop and maintain close client relationships and ensure each person is given the respect and dignity he or she deserves. As a young, energetic attorney, I am breaking the standard mold of “impersonal and cold” service and I will ensure all clients are treated as individuals with unique problems.

I am the most down to earth attorney you will ever meet. I believe in treating all people with respect, courtesy and empathy. My ability to sympathize with my clients, yet fight hard for their rights is my greatest strength. A close second is my love of a good argument and my inability to be intimidated.

My firm focuses on areas of law that interact with the business world and financial matters. I focus my practice on bankruptcy, corporate and commercial law and other transactional matters. These focuses allow me to utilize my entire educational background, both in law and business. My business knowledge and understanding of finance and “numbers” has proven invaluable to me while assisting people through debt negotiation and bankruptcy.
