I have been practicing bankruptcy law since 2004 and have personally filed over 3,500 cases in the last ten years. I help families who are trying to provide a better life for their kids; people who are so stressed out, they can’t remember not having a pit of dread in their stomach; and people who are literally sick and tired of living paycheck to paycheck and never getting ahead. I believe that everyone deserves a financial do-over—not to mention a little kindness. Our past doesn’t have to determine who we are for the rest of our lives. We can decide that today we will make a change.
I grew up in the North Country, came to Syracuse for law school, and never left (Go, Orange!). I earned my B.A. in Government in 2000 from St. Lawrence University, graduating magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. I then received my Juris Doctor in 2003 from Syracuse University College of Law, where I served as a member of the Moot Court Honor Society. Currently, I’m a member of NACBA (National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys), NYSBA (New York State Bar Association), OCBA (Onondaga County Bar Association), Vice President of the CNY Bankruptcy Bar Association, Standing Committee on Local Bankruptcy Rules (past member) and I volunteer with the Legal Aid Society.
On a personal note, I love the smell of freshly cut grass and the first big snowfall of the year (although, by January, I’m over it). I dislike bell peppers with every fiber of my being (and, before you ask, no—I can’t pick them off the pizza—it’s been ruined).
Bottom line: I’m passionate about helping people. Give me a call today and let’s connect.
