Bankruptcy
For over 15 years I have been helping individuals and small businesses with debt relief issues. I have filed thousands of bankruptcy cases in my career.
A fundamental goal of the federal bankruptcy laws is to give to the honest but unfortunate debtor a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt. This goal is accomplished through the bankruptcy discharge, which releases debtors from personal liability from specific debts and prohibits creditors from ever taking any action against the debtor to collect those debts. If you file bankruptcy it will stop repossessions and foreclosures, stop garnishments, and your assets will be protected.

I am here to assess your financial situation and to determine what your options are. If you need to file bankruptcy, I will hold your hand in the process and make sure we achieve the best result possible for you.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

From 2001-2005 I worked for a prominent law firm in NW Portland, and our primary specialty was consumer bankruptcy. I learned from one of the best attorneys on the west coast, Kent Snyder, and found that I really enjoy this area of the law. I particularly enjoy the practice of bankruptcy law because I can make a positive difference in people's lives and we rarely have to engage in litigation.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

I have spent the majority of my legal career practicing in the area of bankruptcy, over 15 years. My partner and I have both filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the past, so we have personal knowledge of what it is like to go through bankruptcy and of the benefits of doing so. I have filed thousands of bankruptcy cases in my career and that I have made a difference in the lives of many.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We are a small firm and we really focus on giving personalized attention to our clients. We are not a bankruptcy "mill". We take the time to get to know our clients and their goals, and we strive to hold our clients' hands through the process to insure that it is a positive experience.
