About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Chapter 13 bankruptcy
    Chapter 13 works best for those about to lose property in a foreclosure or garnishment. It is also for those with too high an income to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

    29 years

  2. Probate
    When heirs do not get along or cannot be found it can be important to apply to be the administrator of an estate. The administrator can sell property to pay estate debts and take other actions to preserve and aggregate estate property.

    29 years

  3. Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    The benefits of a Chapter 7 are that it can usually be wound up in 4 months can help a person turn around her life in a short amount of time. Chapter 13 bankruptcies last 3 to 5 years and restrict a person's access to credit and their income tax rebates. The downside is that a Chapter 7 can only be filed 8 years after a previous discharge.

    29 years

  4. Wills and living wills
    A will allows a person to direct the transfer of their property after their death. Without a will the State makes those decisions. A person can also choose who will be responsible for a minor child. In a will a person can choose who will administer their estate and whether that person will be able to act unsupervised or will require court authority.

My avocation is public speaking and performance. I have lectured on the Holocaust and done storytelling. I am devoted to physical fitness, believing a sound mind resides in a sound body. I am excited by the local culture and food of New Orleans. I have exhibited my photographs in local galleries. I have portraits of Holocaust Survivors as part of the collection of the New Orleans Musuem of Art.

Bankruptcy is a scary subject, but not really.
Outakes.  Just for fun.
