When I left the corporate world, I was tired of working long hours and seemingly accomplishing nothing for my effort. When I hung out my own shingle, I chose an area of law that I was comfortable with and knew that I could feel a sense of accomplishment. Estate planning includes drafting Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney, all of which are crucial to the success of all families.
Early on in my practice, I had a family member come to me facing a failing business and mounting debts. We interviewed several bankruptcy attorneys, all of whom did not seem to care about the personal sense of failure he felt. I decided that this was no way to treat someone who was facing such a crisis. I then took it upon myself to learn bankruptcy and have been assisting individuals and families ever since.
My family has a long history of serving their country in the military. Although I did not serve, I decided to find a way to help those that did. I am not accredited with the Veteran's Administration to help veteran's and their families to obtain certain little known benefits to help out with their health care needs.
I have nearly 25 years experience in the legal field, as a law clerk, paralegal, manager and attorney. My experiences have taught me to place my clients on a pedestal and make sure their needs are understood and then satisfied.
I am a member in good standing with the California State Bar Association, the United States Bankruptcy Bar Association and the Contra Costa County Bar Association. I am also a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, having attended several national conferences.
I believe that the client's needs come first. I treat every client as an individual who needs to be heard and understood. I know that many attorneys treat their clients as numbers and revenue generators. I do not believe that is right way to handle people seeking to resolve a problem.
