When you call, you will speak directly to an attorney, who will explain the ins and outs of the bankruptcy process. We will not recommend bankruptcy unless we think it is the best option for you.
My goal is to help both consumers and small businesses navigate difficult times as well as avoid recurring financial stress down the road. I bring twenty years of experience handling business disputes and bankruptcies to bear on behalf of clients needing legal assistance arising from financial challenges.
II represent individuals in a variety of situations with the goal of avoiding bankruptcy if possible through proactive debt management of medical bills, student loan payments, mortgages and credit card debt. I also keep an eye out for predatory lending practices that may be present in auto loans, reverse mortgages, and other debt aimed at financially challenged individuals. I believe the deck keeps getting stacked higher and higher against the hard-working middle class, and I will use every legal tool in my toolbox to help even things out.
In addition to bankruptcy and pre-bankruptcy counseling, I represent businesses in contract and lease negotiations, disputes with vendors and suppliers, and any other legal issues arising from cash flow or business disruption problems.
