  • Bankruptcy

Perhaps now more than ever, residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania are having difficulty keeping up with their mortgages, rent, auto loans, credit cards, and other bills. I have helped over 6,000 clients find solutions to their financial problems, and if you have questions about managing your debts, I am confident I can help you as well.

Why speak to me rather than another attorney? First, my experience: I've helped clients out of almost every imaginable financial bind. Second, I was raised in a household that experienced financial struggles and know firsthand the stress it can cause. Fortunately, I had a loving family and learned the importance of helping others. What I do for a living is not just a job, it's part of who I am.

If you prefer an attorney who belongs to a country club and drives a car that cost more than the fancy private schools they attended, I am not the lawyer for you. I delivered newspapers, mopped floors, washed dishes, fried hushpuppies, and was the night manager at a fast-food restaurant all before I turned 18. I had a job during each semester of college and worked two jobs every summer. Other than caring for my family, I only have one job now - helping my clients with their financial problems, at an affordable cost.

Call me at 570-559-5507 ext. 246 if you have questions about your finances. There is no charge for me to listen to your situation, assess your particular circumstances, and recommend possible solutions.
