Bankruptcy & Collections
  • Bankruptcy: I represent both business and individual debtors and creditors in Bankruptcy proceedings, and am experienced in Chapter 7, 11 and 13 Bankruptcy filings.  I can also help you with alternatives to Bankruptcy, such a debt reorganization and negotiation with creditors.  I currently serve on the San Diego County Bar Association's Bankruptcy Panel, a referral network limited to experienced and qualified attorneys who practice Bankruptcy law.
  • Collections: I represent both debtors and creditors in the collections process.  For debtors, I offer debt negotiation services; a typical client may experience a reduction in debt of 25 – 75% of the amount owed to a creditor.  For creditors, I offer help with collection of accounts receivable, promissory notes, and collection and enforcement of judgments.
