I strive to provide the most personalized and hands-on approach to serving my clients.  You will have access to my cell phone number, and I will always be a phone call, text, or email away to answer any question you have.  I am committed to explaining the process so that you understand exactly how bankruptcy works and are prepared for every step, so that there are no surprises.

I am compassionate and understanding, and will never make you feel judged.  This is already a stressful time in your life, and I am here to assist you in alleviating the overwhelming stress of dealing with your creditors. 

With that said, I will be aggressive in my representation of you.  I personally handle your case and will tirelessly fight for you to ensure your financial success.  I take pride in the relief my clients feel when they leave my office, that shows me I have done my job.
