We strive to make sure our clients get the information they need about their rights and options, so they can make confident decisions about their future. Contact our office to arrange a confidential consultation to discuss your bankruptcy or collections needs.

In addition, he has given numerous lectures and published works on various topics in bankruptcy and collections law over the years.
At our firm, we combine personal service, attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the law to benefit our clients. By investing the necessary time upfront to understand your particular needs and objectives, we strive to build strong client relationships and help our clients navigate what can be a difficult period in their lives.
We focus our representation on the following:
- Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We represent debtors and creditors in liquidation proceedings under Chapter 7. We help debtors determine whether they qualify for protection under Chapter 7 and, if so, prepare and file all required documents to initiate the bankruptcy proceeding. We help creditors prepare and file proofs of claim and represent them in all proceedings before the court or trustee.
- Chapter 11 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We work with both debtors and creditors involved in reorganization proceedings under Chapter 11 or Chapter 13. We file petitions for debtors and proofs of claim for creditors. We also review proposed repayment plans to ensure your best interests are protected. We defend creditors against suits filed by bankruptcy trustees.
- Business collections. We help businesses collect unpaid obligations, prepare demand letters, locate debtors and assets, secure legal judgments and take all necessary action to enforce and collect on those judgments.
Our bankruptcy practice extends to Chapter 9 filings for government entities, such as cities, counties, towns and villages that face financial pressures and seek debt relief.
