Overwhelmed. Angry. Scared. Depressed. Distrustful. Anxious. These emotions describe the clients that walk through our door. Understanding. Empowerment. Relief. Peace of mind. These emotions describe our clients after they spend their first hour with us. We are not just lawyers, we are counselors at law. We listen. We understand. The recession of 2008 and the poor economic climate of the last number of years has left record numbers of clients with debt that far exceeds their ability to ever pay. These same people have barely survived and in many cases have been forced to use their life savings or money in retirement accounts to do so. We offer creative asset and debt allocation strategies, aimed at preserving valuable property, both real and personal. With over 22 years of experience in the law, we work diligently to assist our clients in navigating the complex maze of decisions required to fully protect their accumulated wealth and their precious relationships.
