Biography

A solo practitioner, I work from a home office in Boyertown, PA, about 30 miles from center-city Philadelphia, and most of my cases are litigated in Philadelphia and Reading courts. With the assistance of local counsel, I also handle matters in Delaware. I have over 30 years experience in both state and federal courts; bankruptcy and mortgage foreclosure/workout are a large part of my practice. There isn't much I haven't seen, or done. PLEASE CONTACT ME BY EMAIL FIRST, as that is my preference, and more reliable for each of us.

Legal Answers
Q. I am a digital artist. Legally, am i allowed to use 'U.S. Army' on the art i am making, and intend to sell?
A: Um, why ask a bunch of bankruptcy lawyers this question? You will be much better served to ask it in sections that deal in that ballpark.
Q. Lawyer wont return my Deposit after I decided not to procced and I have no contract signed
A: As you've never filed your bankruptcy case, the bankruptcy court has no jurisdiction over your claim. It may be that the US Trustee's office, or the California Bar Association, would be the more appropriate agency to entertain your grievance.
Q. Can a debtor collect on previous debt that was discharged?
A: I read your question differently from the others who have answered, meaning I think you may have someone who owes you money, and you want to know whether, post-bankruptcy, post-discharge, you can pursue the one who owes you money. The answer is yes, if you listed the debt on the sworn Schedules you filed in your bankruptcy case. If you didn't list your claim against whoever, then no, you probably do not have a right in law to pursue the claim now.
