|Why be limited to one career? I've been a general-civil-practice attorney, computer application software developer, blue-ribbon-winning artist, and now once again an attorney, this time leading people in financial difficulty to a Fresh Start.
|Why bankruptcy law?
|I too have had the experience of seeing my field of work (then computer application software development) shrink before my very eyes with the projects I used to get being sent overseas. People in the current economy have similar experiences and I was determined to find a way to use my legal background to help them. I decided that practicing bankruptcy law was the most direct way I could help.
|What I like best about my work
|I like seeing the relief in the eyes and manner of my clients after they've taken the steps they need to take toward a financial Fresh Start. It's a privilege to be an important part of that process.
|About my law firm
|I'm a solo practitioner by choice and all my clients deal directly with me, not non-attorney assistants. I think this is the way it should be done so it's the way I do it.
|I'm an ex-ski bum who has hung up his skis, have been an artist (silkscreen/serigraph), and am still a photographer. I enjoy and appreciate this wonderful place where we live; I never tire of the beauty and diversity of it.
