I help people solve problems.

I help them kick debt collectors to the curb. I also help them untie the knot. And I help them move from the world to the next.

More specifically:

I help people file for bankruptcy when their debt is too much for them to deal with any more.

I help them end a marriage when they feel that's their only option.

And I help people put together a Will or a Trust (or both) so when their time on this earth ends, those left behind can have some semblance of order in a trying situation.

When people come to me, they are facing a situation they aren’t sure how to deal with. They have questions and are looking for answers.

I look at the situation and figure out how I can help. And when they hire me, I get to work! In short, I help people solve problems.

Helping someone with too much debt is different than helping someone whose parent just passed away. It is different from helping someone get a divorce.

Sometimes I help by preparing documents in my office. Other times it means a lawsuit. It could mean taking a case to trial. It could mean taking a case to the Court of Appeals or even the Supreme Court.

Good results can usually be obtained with persistence and knowing what you’re doing. Whether that is preparing documents in my office or knowing the law and being able to ride out the ups and downs of a court case, I can help people solve their legal problems.

If you're in one of these situations, pick up your phone and call me today!

Sometimes people's idea of an estate plan is little more than "avoiding probate court." For some people, it is possible to do just that.
