I opened this office in January of 2003, but I have been representing clients in bankruptcy in this area since 1988. I assist people in North Central Florida who have financial problems.Example cases
I regularly represent clients in Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 cases in the Northern and Middle District of Florida bankruptcy courts.
2830 NW 41st. Street
Gainesville FL 32635
I offer a 30 minute free initial consultation for people who are interested in learning what their options are and whether bankruptcy can help them. My fees vary based on the complexity of each individual case but I always give people a recommendation and a quoted fee after we've met and I've reviewed their situation.
Free initial debtor bankruptcy consultation; $200 per hour for creditor representation.
Monday through Friday
8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Evenings and weekend appointments available.
Bankruptcy offers people closed-end solutions. A lot of law is very open-ended. There are real answers to real problems. Bankruptcy also offers closure to people who are going through very difficult times in their lives and the opportunity for a fresh start.
I encourage my clients to stay informed and to seek information from me or from independent sources regarding the law, their rights and their responsibilities.
Under some circumstances I will review documents prepared by clients. I will review documents and correspondence received by clients and advise them regarding the contents.
I will meet with individuals who are proceeding pro se but usually can't be available to them on an on-going basis.
I was a partner in Swanson & Sperling, PA from 1991 until 2002. Prior to that I was an associate with Scruggs & Carmichael, PA and an associate with the Law Office of Lansing J. Roy.
I worked my way through college and law school. I understand that the people who come to see me don't want to be in the circumstances they are.
I am practical. I don't take a case just to take a case, I will tell people if I think that this is not a right thing for them to do and will suggest alternatives. I try to be realistic with what their results are because I want their lives to be better after their case.Personal interests:
Baseball, reading, my kids, and politics.
