I speak your language. I’ve grown to understand and relate to your case through my very diverse life experiences. I grew up in a small steel town, in a family of a steel mill engineer and a metallurgical chemist. The decline of the steel industry and the closure of the steel plant had a devastating effect on my family. Both of my parent struggled to find jobs in the new manufacture-less era. Although my family was able to make the necessary adjustment (my mom became a high school science teacher and my dad found a job with a local utility company) we were affected detrimentally by the shift in the global economic trends. However, many steel workers were never able to find new well-paying jobs and had to rely on public assistance programs and bankruptcy laws. Several years later, while working in the Automotive and Transportation industries, I witnessed firsthand the destruction rendered upon the economy by the 2008-09 financial crisis. Many businesses of any scale from “mom and pop” shops to nationwide giants were collapsing, including dealerships, trucking companies, retailers, manufactures pooling down a wide range of related counterparts. Thousands of people lost their houses and lifetime savings, and ended up jobless, without any meaningful source of income. The housing market crashed and foreclosed properties were selling for only a fraction of their value. I’ve learned that at times people need a hand to stand up to their challenges. Fortunately, the legal system provides some protection for people in need and I can help you to take advantage of these valuable opportunities.
I have graduated from the Villanova University, Charles Widger School of Law, (LL.M. in Taxation), University of Akron, School of Law with a Jurist Doctor (JD) degree, concentrated in corporate, business and personal distressed assets and LL.M. in Intellectual Property.
