Coming in to see an attorney may be a frightening experience, but it does not have to be so difficult. We are here to help you! Our goal is to make you comfortable from the moment you arrive and treat you like family. The most important part of choosing an attorney is finding a good fit - someone you like and who can relate to you. Representing a client well involves good listening skills, compassion, legal knowledge, and a gift of encouragement. Attorneys are also called counselors for a good reason. Most legal problems have the client upset, confused or angry. We understand the range of emotions you are feeling. Let us help you move through this moment in your life and get to the other side.

We have flat fees and hourly fees available. When life gets messy, it does not consult your checkbook. Payment plans available.

Life is busy! You have way too many things to do and trying to find time to visit with an attorney can be a challenge. The various forms which are required in your court cases are accessible from our website. We have web cams availbale for meetings. Email makes communication much easier with your attorney. While it is not a totally secure means of communication, it does allow us to notify clients of court dates or provide basic non-confidential information. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. I hope to answer many basic questions on the website to help you understand the maze of the legal system.

Frequently Asked Questions
Bankruptcy FAQs
  • How will filing a bankruptcy help me?

    Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32

    It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

  • What are some of the common mistakes people make when filing bankruptcy?

    Two of the most common mistakes are not making it to your scheduled hearing and failing to list all of your assets, debts and any other liabilities you have. If you fail to appear at the bankruptcy hearing, your case will often than not be dismissed. It is very important to list all your assets and debts. No matter what list every debt you have, even if you believe that it is a non-discharge able debt, it could end up getting discharged anyway. Even include your last month’s utility bills in your debts when you file.
