Summary

As the only Board Certified Consumer Bankruptcy attorney in West Palm Beach, practicing bankruptcy law since 1977, I possess a high degree of expertise in the field of consumer bankruptcy law. I have been Board Certified by the American Board of Certification in Consumer Bankruptcy since 1999.

Attainment of this certification requires peer review, successful performance on a lengthy examination and completion of 60 hours of continuing legal education every five years. It is not surprising that few lawyers are able to achieve this distinction.

I have also authored a text book for lawyers on bankruptcy which is part of the Lawyer's Desk Library of Practice Series.

Many of the cases that I have handled have been reported in law books nationally and are precedent-setting.

Having twice won the Pro-Bono Award from the Palm Beach County Legal Aid Society, I have demonstrated my compassion for public service.

I would be pleased if I could offer you a free consultation at a time convenient for you.
