It has been said that mankind should, whenever possible, do justice and love mercy in all circumstances. I put this philosophical approach into action in order to fulfill this mandate on behalf of my clients.
The Great Recession of the late 2000s caused a dramatic shift in the way Americans view both federal benefits and consumer debt obligations. While politicians and CEOs see government agencies and federal laws as mere inconvenient pawns subject to manipulation, taxpayers are left scrambling for financial protection in their time of need. With this in mind, after practicing within a large international law firm from 2005-2008, I decided to become an advocate on behalf of those who need their rights protected throughout the federal court system.

Areas of Practice
Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability (SSDI) is a payroll tax-funded, federal insurance program of the United States government. Informal names for SSDI include Disability Insurance Benefits and Title II benefits, named for the chapter title of the Social Security Act.
payroll-tax funded, not an entitlement
The Social Security Administration defines the term "disability" as the inability to perform substantial gainful activity because of a medically determinable condition or conditions that has lasted or will last 12 consecutive months or result in death. If your application is rejected, a skilled attorney can represent you in presenting your case before an Administrative Law Judge.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
This chapter is often referred to as “liquidation” and grants qualifying debtors a discharge of all prepetition non-priority debts. A comprehensive review of your income and assets is necessary prior to making the decision to file a Chapter 7 case.
designed for liquidation
Though Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is designed for liquidation, most who file under this chapter are able to keep their property. A skilled attorney is able to conduct a thorough review of your assets to determine whether one's property may be subject to the reach of a court appointed trustee.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
This chapter is often referred to as a reorganization and allows a debtor to keep property subject to a lien while making timely monthly payments through a court approved plan. A carefully crafted monthly budget must be arranged and approved by a court-appointed trustee.
designed as a plan for reorganization
The notion of a reorganization in bankruptcy is usually within the context of a small business entity or large corporation. However Chapter 13 of The Bankruptcy Code provides an opportunity for an individual wage-earner to repay past due debts over the course of 36 to 60 months
