Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial MediaResponsive Law

While attending Washburn School of Law, I worked as a paralegal in the office of a bankruptcy attorney. Since 2006, I have been actively engaged in the practice of consumer bankruptcy law. I enjoy working with individuals and helping them get a fresh financial start. I know how to help. So I do that exclusively. Although I am located in Topeka, KS (where the U.S. Bankruptcy Court is located), the law firm helps individuals from all over Kansas. Just give us a call at 785/783-2360. At age 15, three of my friends and I started a punk rock band called The Micronotz. That was our primary extra-curricular activity all through high school and into college. We produced several record albums and a couple of cassettes (if you remember what those are), became regionally well known, and continue to this day to be legends in our own minds. Occasionally, I still play when I can find a group looking for a decent “axman.” I did find time to graduate from Lawrence High School as a Merit Scholarship Finalist, attended KU on a Merit Scholarship, and ultimately received a degree in English. Like most aspiring musicians (and English majors), I spent a good deal of time working in restaurants to keep from starving to death. Ultimately, I decided to get serious about food and enrolled in the Culinary and Hospitality Program at JCCC. This led to a number of interesting gastronomic adventures and eventually convinced me that it was time to get out of the kitchen. Suddenly, practicing law, as my father had done, didn’t seem like such a bad idea. And it has turned out to be a good choice for me. I like practicing in the bankruptcy field because at the end of most everyday I can say life was better for someone because I showed up for work.

  • Free Consultation
    Bankruptcy is a personal matter. The process can be confusing. That is why, unless there are extenuating circumstances, I always meet prospective clients in person. There is no charge & no strings attached - just a chance to get acquainted, analyze your situation, & answer all your questions.. There are no upfront fees when filing a Ch. 13 case. All fees are fully disclosed and are subject to approval by the court.
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
