Located in Freehold, New Jersey, she provides representation to clients throughout the State..

Believing that bankuptcy is a measure of last resort, she looks for other options to help her clients first,  such as mortgage modifications, debt relief,  and tax compromise.  Realizing that clients don't just need a fresh start by filing for bankruptcy but tools to help guide them afterwards, all of her clients receive monthly newsletters consisting of financial advice such as budgeting, money management, and savings tip as well as are enrolled in a program to improve their credit score at no charge.  No client is ever a  case but a lifelong friend who always has her support.
