"Many think a defense lawyer's job is to get people off. No, his job is to help others maintain their rights and be treated fairly by the system."

When you’re facing a charge, chances are you just want your life back to how it was before you needed a lawyer. My main goal in resolving cases is to make life normal again, if not better.

Some lawyers will do whatever it takes just to rack up a bill.
I listen to what's important to my clients.

My focus is on finding the best possible resolution.

Just because an attorney recommends one path of execution for your case doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what is right for you. That is why I always go the extra mile to listen to what you have to say in order to truly understand your situation and where you might be coming from.

A lawyer who doesn’t understand the needs of his client is a lawyer who is not truly capable of helping him to the fullest extent possible. Unfortunately, there are too many lawyers like that out there who only serve their best interests. That’s why I make an effort to actually get to know you rather than just move the chains.

If you’re facing bankruptcy, there isn’t a good cookie-cutter approach that works for everyone. Each person has different assets and debts owed, and payment plans can be personally tailored to best meet individual needs. If your lawyer doesn’t realize that, then you could end up worse off than you were before.

The same principle applies to criminal defense. If your lawyer recommends a plea bargain right off the bat without actually assessing the details or police work, you run the risk of getting a criminal record when you might otherwise have been proven innocent. There is no room for lawyers who don’t care.

What's possible after a bankruptcy?

Plant Growing Within a Stack of Money


How soon you can buy a home after filing for bankruptcy is largely dependent on which type you file for, but generally takes a few years. If you foreclose on a home, you will probably have to wait seven years before you can apply for loans again, but with careful planning and execution, it can be done.


The biggest issue with financing a car after going bankrupt — as is the case for most things — will be the increased interest rate. A loan can still be acquired after filing for bankruptcy, but it might take a bit of looking and researching.


It’s no secret that filing for bankruptcy destroys your credit, but just because something breaks doesn’t mean it can’t be rebuilt. Building back credit is a skill and with careful planning and management, you can get your credit back on track.
