Attorney Profile

After more than three decades of representing and advising clients in all phases of debt collection and other litigation, and serving as the managing partner of a large-scale collection law practice–including all aspects of administration, business analysis and strategic planning–I’ve returned to a more intimate and personalized approach to legal practice. One that enables me to focus on the practice of law as a meaningful tool to assist my clients.
