During an early clerkship, the attorney I worked with did bankruptcy. I learned it from a Nolo book and became good at it.
They should always try to.
Possibly, but the new bankruptcy laws are very strict and complicated.
I have represented thousands of people and businesses in bankruptcy, and have always been self-employed.
All of my education and work experience, particularly the service jobs like clerk and cashier I had as a kid, have helped me to be a better lawyer.
I am well-versed in the new bankruptcy law, having studied it as it was being formulated over the last 8 years. I worked to actively oppose what I saw as a creditor-sponsored slap in the face to American consumers.
Casual, friendly, focused.
I enjoy travel, music and film.
