About me

During my childhood, I watched my parents suffer through financial issues with no direction or guidance. These events motivated me to become a Certified Public Accountant (C.P.A.) and a lawyer in order to help people in similar circumstances.


 


I attended Florida International University where I earned a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Accounting and went on to become a CPA. Thereafter, I earned a Law degree from the University of Miami.


 


My first job as a law clerk was at Legal Services of Greater Miami Inc., a non-profit organization which provides legal assistance to elderly and indigent individuals. I remained with this organization through my years in law school and upon graduation accepted a position as an Associate in their Housing and Taxation department. I assisted clients facing foreclosure and eviction to remain in their homes. I also helped clients in economic hardship to file for bankruptcy and represented clients before the Internal Revenue Service.


 


I learned a lot in those years at the front lines. Most of all, I learned that the law can help a person to heal and move forward with life. Bankruptcy Law affords an individual the opportunity to start over and regain financial stability. After my time at Legal Services, I decided to open a law practice with a primary focus in Bankruptcy. Ever since then I have devoted my efforts to assist people and businesses find relief under the Bankruptcy Code.


 


No one ever dreams or aspires to file for bankruptcy or be faced with foreclosure. Life happens, unemployment, salary reductions, forced retirement, divorce, illness or simply increasing costs and stagnant compensation. Part of life is coping with unexpected and unfavorable events.


 


My job is to help you cope with the unexpected and catastrophic financial events. My objective is to get you back to a sound financial path. Let me help you. Call today for a free consultation where we can discuss your goals and whether Bankruptcy can help you achieve them. It's never too late to hit the "restart" button in your life! Find out how.
