Prior to starting my bankruptcy practice, I worked as a Senior Vice President in the mortgage business for approximately 25 years. During my time as a mortgage banker, I graduated from Oklahoma City School of Law.
My prior experience in home loan financing gave me insight and understanding to help people maintain homeownership. Helping my clients obtain a "fresh start" allows them to obtain homeownership and maintain an important asset for themselves and their families. Struggling with debt creates tremendous economical and physical stress for my clients. The ability to ease the burden of debt and establish a feeling of hope is the driving force of my practice.
I have helped families discharge credit card debt, signature loans, State and Federal Income taxes, medical debt and other predatory lendings (i.e. - payday loans, buy here/pay here car loans)
The majority of my client has suffered major medical expenses within their family or have lost their employment. Some of my clients have fallen into gambling habits while living on a fixed income I personally talk and meet with each client. I know and understand their circumstances. I believe that I have empathy and believe my clients are individuals and families not just a number on a file. I help my clients with direction and options to rebuild their financial lives after bankruptcy. A large number of my clients come to me as a referral from a friend or family member. It has always been satisfying to see former clients have recommended me to help their friends or family member. Indicating they felt I did a good job for them.
