I graduated from the University of Oregon Law School in December of 1992. In 1993 and 1994 I handled criminal and consumer law cases and worked as a clerk for a bankruptcy lawyer in Eugene. My wife and I moved to Portland in 1994. I have been practicing bankruptcy law in Portland Oregon ever since.
Since starting my practice in 1994, I have represented over 1,000 clients in bankruptcy cases, I have handled enough bankruptcies to be experienced yet I still retain a personal relationship with my clients. Some bankruptcy attorneys handle a thousand cases or more in one year! I simply do not want to be a "bankruptcy mill" and push through case after case. I prefer to work one-to-one with my clients. In fact, you will NEVER work with a paralegal or secretary if you hire me. I do use a typist for data entry, but all of my clients interact only with me. I answer all client questions myself and I strive to return telephone calls or email the same day. And this does not cost more. My fees are comparable to or less than most firms.
Please do not hesitate to call me if you want to learn more about your bankruptcy options. I always offer a free consultation to people contemplating bankruptcy*
* The free consultation does not apply to people that have already filed a bankruptcy case or who are already represented by another lawyer.
