Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I am a passionate advocate for consumers who are being abused and mistreated, or even taken advantage of procedurally, by their creditors. There are ample legal protections in place - North Carolina is a very consumer-friendly state - and I want to explore every possibility which will be an advantage to my client. I sue abusive debt collectors for harassment, and I advise and defend people facing debt collection lawsuits. I also have a wealth of experience with guardianships, having served as a Guardian ad Litem for Wake County guardianship hearings for over six years. I welcome the opportunity to assist my clients with the difficult process of having a guardian appointed for their loved one.

I have over 26 years in the legal services industry, covering all aspects of the field. As a new legal secretary, I joined a small, young firm of attorneys in downtown Atlanta, Georgia in 1984. In 1988, I obtained a certificate in Paralegal Studies from the National Paralegal Institute in Atlanta. After moving to Houston, I achieved a Certified Legal Assistant in the national level by taking a national certification exam. In 2002, I entered law school, and passed the bar in early 2006.
