I have spent my career serving clients while integrating business with the law, in the United States and Europe. Recently my focus has been in consumer protection, helping people through these tough economic times through restructuring their credit card debt, forclosure issues and, if needed, bankruptcy.
My UCLA engineering background provides an analytical approach to complex business transactions and my business sense insures that both the personalities and overall economics work.
I strongly believe that people are more important than the idea, that it is all about true cash flow, and that there is no such thing as a good deal with a bad partner. I also believe that truth is not relative and integrity is the key to suceessfull business and life. Finally in these tough economic times, i believe that technology, properly applied, is the key to protecting the environment and providing everybody with a high standard of living.
From a consumer protection point of view, I try to get client's to realize that it is OK to wait to buy something until the cash is in the acount and that once you are really cash based, your credit ratind is not all that important.
My two favorite phrases are "less is more" and "carpe diem".
