I am originally from San Diego California. I have lived in Las Vegas since 2000. I am married and have raised two children in Las Vegas. I love sports and being a family man. I like to help others.
My practice areas are not limited to bankruptcy, I have done extensive Civil and Family Litigation, however much of my practice focuses on Debtor relief.
I have practiced law for the past 16 years in Las Vegas. I have extensive experience in bankruptcy. I have done trials, and appeals concerning bankruptcy issues. I have participated and argued thousands of bankruptcy hearings.
I formerly represented creditors. This has given me valuable insight. For the last 10 years my practice has focused on Debtors’ relief. Especially in bankruptcy. I have done numerous chapter 7 and chapter 13
I am not limited to chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcies. I have also done numerous chapter 11 bankruptcies to reduce property values to Fair Market Value. This was especially helpful during the mortgage crash. I helped hundreds of homeowners reduce their property to fair market value in bankruptcy.
My goal is to empower my clients to make the right decision concerning their financial situation. I want the client to know they are making the right decision. This is done by through review and analysis of each situation.
