also known as Bob Weed

About me

I love being a bankruptcy lawyer because I can help almost everyone I see. Bankruptcy is about happy endings.


I graduated from law school at the University of Maryland and did banruptcies for several years for a small law firm in Baltimore and Glen Burnie.  


I've been a bankruptcy lawyer in Northern VA for more than twenty years, and I've helped more than fourteen thousand people get a new start in life.  


I'm 67 years old, married and live with my (much younger) wife in Falls Church VA.  I'm a member of The Falls Church (Anglican).
