Attorney Profile

I practice consumer bankruptcy law. I was hired for a position in a bankruptcy firm shortly after passing the bar in 2009 and I have been a high volume consumer bankruptcy attorney since. I specialize in filing consumer Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases and I've filed hundreds of cases in my years of practice. My career has focused on consumer bankruptcy practice and that has allowed me to become highly proficient in this area of the law.
