What I Do
I represent individuals, business owners and businesses in financial distress. I handle bankruptcy cases under all chapters of the Bankruptcy Code as well as non-bankruptcy workouts and debt settlements. Complementing my bankruptcy practice, I advise clients on asset protection issues, litigation strategies and general business law matters. Finally, I devote roughly 15% of my professional time to pro bono work, taking cases through the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society.
