My firm was established in December 1998. We focus primarily on bankruptcy. I deal with all types of cases: small business, litigation, and many "normal" consumer cases.
In addition, I also practice in business law, personal injury and criminal law.
I have helped many small business owners reorganize, including a local florist. I also litigated a million dollar Default Judgment in Bankruptcy Court. Ultimately, the Court disallowed the creditor's claim. In addition, a lot of clients have
been able to save their homes by filing Chapter 13.

Initially, I was hired as a bankruptcy attorney. Twelve years later, I have made a career in this area of law.
It is important for clients to get basic background information. Learn enough to be able to conversant with professionals (Lawyers, Accountants, and Doctors).
As a general rule, I do not like to review documents prepared by clients.
Generally, I do not engage in "coaching" clients to represent themselves. Clients are at an enormous disadvantage if there is counsel on the other side.

I relate to my clients more than most attorneys. I "worked through law school." I empathize and understand regular people - I am able to give direct "plain English" advice.
My strengths include that I am able to deal with complex issues/situations. I also am able to speak with different types of individuals "on their level." In terms of style, I seek to put my clients in positions where they can succeed.Personal interests:
I spend much of my non-work time at my children's activities and/or functions. I love coaching Little League football.
