Claimed Lawyer Profile

Having practiced for 29 years in both bankruptcy and family law, two often related fields of practice effecting consumers, I have gained considerable expertise as well as an understanding that consumers are seeking prompt resolution of such issues with the least conflict and at the lowest cost. Being among a small handful of dual Certified Specialists in both Bankruptcy and Family Law, I am frequently sought out by attorneys and litigants whose cases originating in one field have spilled over into the other, where knowledge and experience in both areas is essential.
