About me

I counsel with people experiencing financial difficulty to determine the best course of action to effectively deal with debts while retaining as much asset value as possible.  The services provided include asset protection consultation, foreclosure defense, short sales, credit card lawsuit defense and both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.
