About me

I practice almost exclusively in the areas of bankruptcy and family law.  These areas have been my focus since I first started practicing law.  


I know that my office is the last place a potential client would like to be.  They would probably rather be at ther Dentist receiving a root canal.  Knowing this, I strive to make the process as easy as possible.
