I am originally from Houston, Texas but spent many formative years in New York State. I am a proud husband for the last 8 years and soon to be father of twins. I am an avid outdoors enthusiast and enjoy fishing and kayaking. I originally went to law school thinking I would become a corporate lawyer in a large firm but found myself (through experience) wanting to help people one by one and be an independent attorney. I've been an independent for five years and have enjoyed every moment of it.

I transitioned to divorce and family law after 15+ years working in accounting and operations for start-up technology companies. I strongly believe lawyers overlook the client experience and often force clients to work their way instead of the best way for the client. This means only being available during regular business hours, poor communication, and a less-than-clear understanding of the law related to their case.

My firm's approach starts with the client. We are committed to flexibility and working for and partnering with every client in the most efficient way for them. For parents, a mid-day meeting is frequently a big...

The United States Bankruptcy Law is designed to give people the benefit of a fresh start by discharging most debts. Filing for bankruptcy; however, is not the only solution to your financial troubles - there are alternatives. People encounter financial difficulties for many reasons, not always of their own making, from an unexpected illness to a sudden job loss, divorce or gambling, student loans. Whatever the reason, many people feel overwhelmed, helpless, and alone. Ruthless bill collectors and the threat of foreclosure can make a tough situation even tougher. Although not the only solution to your financial difficulties, filing...

Considering Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy law allows debtors, who are unable or partially unable to pay outstanding debts, to rid themselves of these debts and obtain a fresh start. Both federal and state laws can affect a debtor seeking to file for bankruptcy, and an attorney can help you understand how state and federal bankruptcy laws apply to you.

If you are struggling with high debt, receiving calls from creditors or collection agencies, or facing foreclosure, garnishment of wages, or repossession of property, filing for bankruptcy may provide you with solutions.

Bankruptcy lawyers offer legal advice and services during a financial crisis. In total, there are six different types of bankruptcy. For persons seeking debt relief, one option is Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which provides for liquidation of the debtor's non-exempt assets. Another popular option for individuals is Chapter 13, which allows for management and reduction of debt through payment plans. Corporations and partnerships filing for bankruptcy often choose to file under Chapter 11, which provides for supervised reorganization of the business.

Experienced bankruptcy counsel can help you evaluate whether you should pursue a bankruptcy as well as the Chapter under which to file. Bankruptcy lawyers can also help end harassing phone calls from debt collectors and evaluate available legal options when facing a home foreclosure.


Automatic stay: An injunction that automatically stops lawsuits, foreclosures, garnishments, and most collection activity against the debtor the moment a bankruptcy petition is filed.

Unsecured claim: A debt for which credit was extended based solely upon the creditor's assessment of the debtor's future ability to pay, rather than on a special assurance of payment.
