Attorney at Law
I have worked for a bankruptcy trustee and a bankruptcy judge. Bankruptcy practice touches many other legal areas including foreclosures, garnishments, employment contracts, leases, trusts, taxes, and title perfection, to name a few.
I also have experience in appellate practice, legal aid services, and litigation through various internships. Prior to law school I was a journalist, which has greatly benefited my legal writing ability.
