I am a small firm practitioner in the Orlando area. I have concentrated on consumer bankruptcy practice since 2007, after handling real estate closings for ten years after law school. I have one associate that does not handle bankruptcy, but our practice areas complement each other.

I consider myself to be in the best possible district to help debtors. The Middle District of Florida was one of the first locations to start a mortgage mediation program in 2010. In 2014, I was a NACBA speaker on the mortgage mediation panel in New York City.

Around 2013, I added student loan law to my consumer practice. I was asked to speak for NACBA again for the Student Loans in Bankruptcy Workshop Webinar in October 2015.

As more of my chapter 13 clients obtain their discharges, I am exploring other areas in which I can help old and new clients and turn their matters into opportunities to supplement and pivot my practice during a downturn in bankruptcy filings.
