About me

Our office handles all sorts of consumer protection issues on behalf of consumers, including debt collection problems, trouble with payday loans and other predatory business practices, problems with credit reports, failures to deal with people fairly in the mortgage process, defective and unsafe products, and similar issues.


We take on cases after consulting with potential clients and reviewing their documents and evidence (thus, nothing said here should be taken as an agreement to represent you as counsel, a guarantee of any result, or the formation of an attorney-client relationship).  But any question you have will be treated promptly, and professionally by our team.
