About me

My first job as a bankruptcy attorney was in Santa Ana, CA working for the largest consumer bankruptcy firm in the U.S.A.  I commuted 90 miles each way from San Diego for several months to gain valuable work experience and knowledge of the bankruptcy practice.

I then transferred to a large consumer bankruptcy firm in San Diego where I learned more including the local rules of The Southern District of California.

In October, 2008 I opened my own law practice in Mission Valley focusing on bankruptcy, asset protection and debt settlement. 

Each client's case is important to me and all clients receive personalized professional attention start to finish and beyond.
