I have 27 years of experience as an Arizona attorney based in Mesa, Arizona. During most of that time, I have been involved in commercial litigation, probate litigation, personal injury, and appellate matters. For more than 12 years, I have been involved in bankruptcy practice, representing individuals, farmers and other businesses in chapter 7, chapter 11, chapter 12, and chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. I have done business for much of this time as Arizona Bankruptcy Counsel.

Beginning in September 2022, I have moved my primary location to Safford, Arizona, where I am working with Grant Walker and his firm, J. Grant Walker, PLLC. Grant and his firm provice services throughout Eastern Arizona. I continue to serve bankruptcy and litigation clients, and will be practicing as well in the areas of including estate planning, probate, guardianship and conservatorship, real estate, business transactions, commercial leasing, personal injury, and medical malpractice.

Great Attorney
Mr. Black went way above and beyond what most attorney's would have done. Contacted him at 5pm with a deadline of having to have a chapter 13 filed by 10am the very next day, from scratch mind you. He stayed up with me doing paper work until 11pm that night. Then raced to the recorders office the next morning and filed the chapter 13 on time. Mr. Black is one class guy, and his professionalism is off the charts. I will defiantly use him again, and I strongly recommend him.
