About me

As a Sacramento bankruptcy attorney I focus on helping people file chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy.  Often my bankruptcy clients need help with stopping a foreclosure sale to give them time to catch up on their mortgage.  I graduated from Pepperdine University in 2003.  In 2007, I received my Juris Doctor from the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law.  I began practicing bankruptcy law and offering debt solutions to the Sacramento community in 2008. My practice focused on responding to the growing number of job losses and home foreclosures.  I found that in some instances I was able to protect my clients' homes from foreclosure and save my clients' money by eliminating credit card debt and lowering interest rates on debt associated with their cars, rental properties, and businesses.
