About me

I believe in helping my clients obtain a fresh financial start.  I'm committed to providing professional and thorough legal services.


 


I've successfully filed thousands of bankruptcies.  I started my law practice in 1997, and have practiced in the bankruptcy field since 2000.  I am licensed to practice in both State and Federal courts of Oregon and Washington.  I file both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.


 


I'm a member of the Oregon State Bar, the Washington State Bar, the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), and both the Oregon and Washington State Bars Debtor/Creditor Sections.


 


I'm a 3rd generation native Oregonian and attended both the University of Oregon for law school in Eugene, Oregon, and the University of Washington in Seattle to earn my Bachelor's degree.


 


While at the University of Oregon School of Law I was a staff member of the presitigious Oregon Law Review and I competed on the International Moot Court.  At the University of Washington I earned a Bachelor's degree in Speech Communications in their Honors College cum laude.  I am member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.
