My job as your local bankruptcy attorney is to do what’s right for you.

In your free initial consultation, I take pride in having your best interest at heart. I will listen to you, evaluate all aspects of your case and give you my best recommendation.


We may recommend bankruptcy – either a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, or we may tell you that bankruptcy is not the right solution for you and then make other suggestions to solve your financial problems. That’s our pledge to you – professionalism; attention to detail; people who will listen; a lawyer you can rely on.

I have practiced law in Marion County, Florida for over 30 years and have focused my practice on bankruptcy law for over 25 years.


Community and Family

I am involved in our community, volunteering with many cultural and social organizations including — former president of the board of directors for the Ocala Civic Theatre (appeared on stage in several productions) — coached my children’s Big Sun Soccer teams and am currently an avid biker. I am a father of three – my oldest son is an architect, my middle son is working on a Phd in chemistry, and my daughter is in college in Boston.
