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

Consumer finance law provides me with the best opportunity to help families on an individual basis and to see the positive results of my efforts.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Clients who have taken the time to educate themselves about their legal options are in a position to make better decisions and better understand the value of my services.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Clients who elect to use my services do not typically need to prepare legal documents. Unfortunately, I am not able to assist self-represented parties in bankruptcy due to court requirements that I perform the appropriate level of due diligence to fully understand the clients financial position.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I am not currently positioned to offer this type of assistance.
