About me

My practice is historically focused in the areas of Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, Consumer, Commercial, Financial, and Corporation law. I am passionate about research in general; I scour through resources on law.  I have been litigating since my first month of practice.  Each time I engage in litigation, I do my best to have the most thorough legal analysis of precedents and statutes to defend my position.  I then seek out the most preeminent expert witnesses to support my case position.
