About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

Practice areas

My firm's practice focuses on consumer bankruptcy and debt resolution. We do help individuals with Social Security Disability filing, small estate planning matters, and business formation, but our main practice revolves around debt resolution.

I enjoy my work as each day involves different aspects of my practice including research and writing, meeting with clients, drafting court papers for my clients, negotiations and discussions with creditors and Trustees, and overseeing business operations.

When meeting with a client for the first time, we offer a full consultation looking at every aspect of the client's case. I will personally discuss each and every issue that may be presented in the case and advise from there. I believe each client should be treated ethically and the attorney should act in the best interest of the client. We advise each client as if we were sitting in their place. We do not put clients in reorganization plans or debt settlement programs unless it is their best option.

The thing I like best about bankruptcy is when the case is complete, my client is happy. Unlike family law, criminal law, probate, accident claims, and many other areas of the law, the client is given a fresh start to begin anew without baggage or past trama carried with them.

Saved my Chapter 13
Brian saved my chapter 13 from failing. My old lawyer made many mistakes that only came to light 2 months before it was to be finished and he told me he didn’t do these kind of cases anymore. No other lawyer would help me. I was in a desperate situation where I would have lost everything. Brian stepped in and help me navigate through a real mess. My chapter 13 is now completed and life is back on track. I wish I would have hired him in the first place. Not only does he know his stuff he has good contacts.

Brian is fantastic to work with and makes what is a very difficult personal situation/decision an easy one to make. He is thorough and explains everything in great detail without talking down to his clients. I would recommend that anyone facing a tough decision regarding personal bankruptcies contact him for a consultation.
