About me

I practice in the bankruptcy area.  I routinely represent debtors and creditors throughout the bankruptcy process.  I also help parties defend and prosecute adversary proceedings.  I handle Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11 cases but concentrate on individual and small to medium size business Chapter 11 cases.
