Attorney Profile

Personal service is the hallmark of my practice.  My clients work with me; not an associate or paralegal.  Streamlined cases, performed professionally, but economically are my goal. Whether I represent a Chapter 11 debtor, a Chapter 12 farmer, an unpaid supplier or vendor, a bank, secured creditor, the trustee or the creditor’s committee, I attempt to get to the central issues of the case without unnecessary litigation.  When litigation is necessary, I focus on the final result, rather than expensive discovery and motion practice.

I handle consumer bankruptcy cases, as well, and bring my near 40 years of experience to bear for my clients in these cases.  As a child, I recited the Lord’s Prayer, "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors".  Individuals, in financial distress, need to understand, and be comforted, that forgiveness of debt is a philosophy which has deep roots in our society and bankruptcy relief is a manifestation of that belief.

In short, I strive to achieve quality result-oriented representation handled ethically and efficiently in all my cases.  This commitment is part of each case I undertake.
