Firm Overview

During your lifetime, you may need to work with a lawyer. You may need to consider filing for bankruptcy, including Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy. As a lawyer, I understand that you will have questions about your particular situation and need clear, concise and timely answers to those questions. Being a solo practitioner enables me to provide clients with individual attention. This means that I will take the time to get to know you and understand your needs, concerns, and goals. I will give you and your case the personal attention and aggressive representation you deserve, and my rates are reasonable.
