I chose the bankruptcy field because it is where I had prior experience, and I wanted to give people an option of personal service in bankruptcies. I love showing my clients that there is a light at the end of the tunnel by providing them a fresh start.
I think it is very important for a client to understand the bankruptcy process. I educate my clients but always encourage them to do further research and to ask me any and all questions they have!
I do not review documents my clients prepare. I prepare all the documents in my office.
I do not recommend a client representing themselves in a bankruptcy. The bankruptcy process is very complicated; even attorneys who do not practice bankruptcy on a regular basis have an attorney.
I worked for two of the large bankruptcy firms in Atlanta, Georgia: Clark and Washington, and Robert J. Semrad and Associates.
I have worked for the large bankruptcy firms in Atlanta. These firms have taught me how a bankruptcy works.
My strongest strength is listening and really getting to understand my clients' specific situations. I provide personal and competent services to all my clients.Personal interests:
Outside of the office, I run marathons and triathlons. I also fund-raise for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
