Debt is simply a part of modern society. No matter your work ethic or financial bracket, you’ll likely be in debt at some point in your life, and it only takes one or two unintended circumstances for that debt to grow out of hand. Many clients have turned to me after facing unexpected medical expenses, job loss, and divorce. Others have sought my advice after falling captive to student loans in order to fulfill their educational and professional dreams. These scenarios should not bring you shame. That’s why I work to confidentially help my clients turn their unfortunate situations around.
All of my childhood friends and family have known I wanted to become an attorney ever since I was a young girl. Now, I am a board certified bankruptcy specialist working to help individuals like you regain their financial freedom.
