Our firm focuses on helping individual clients get on firm financial ground either through debt settlement, credit restoration, bankruptcy services or defending clients in legal actions filed by their creditors. We serve our corporate clients by helping them to collect debts owed to them or representing them as creditors in bankruptcies.
I began practicing law in 1992 as an attorney for a trustee in bankruptcy. I later started my own practice in 1994 representing corporate clients in collection matters and both debtors and creditors in bankruptcies. My expanded practice areas include Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 debtor and creditor representation, debt settlement, credit restoration, corporate collection, and collection defense.
I regularly represent families who never expected to have to file for bankruptcy. Often times, individuals or couples experience unexpected circumstances such as the loss of a job or illness in the family leaving them overwhelmed financially. I take great joy in being able to help clients obtain a fresh start. Debt settlement is particularly rewarding, especially when I am able to settle all debts and return funds to the client.

I have always enjoyed the area of bankruptcy since I was introduced to it in law school. Upon graduation from law school I began working for a bankruptcy trustee. Bankruptcy is a good fit for my personality and I love being able to help clients obtain a fresh start on their lives. Debt settlement was a natural progression for those clients who wanted to avoid bankruptcy and had the assets available to do so.
I encourage clients to be proactive and educate themselves, but they should take care as there is a lot of wrong information that is readily available. It is not unusual for clients to sit down with me and tell me what they read on the internet or something that a coworker told them that is absolutely wrong. There are very few situations in which a client should represent themselves. I have witnessed several cases in which an individual has chosen to represent themselves and, because they did not understand all of the laws and obligations, ended up costing themselves more than they would have spent to hire an attorney.
I am willing to review documents prepared by existing clients if they request I do so.
Clients are not encouraged in the bankruptcy arena to represent themselves because of the dire consequences that it can bring. However, I am willing to help clients with loan modifications, debt settlement, and credit report issues.
