My promise is simple – I’ll help you understand all your options when it comes to your debts. I’ll put the power in your hands by giving you a step-by-step roadmap to solving your problem. You’ll always be fully informed, and I’ll do my very best work for you.
I’ve been a lawyer for over 25 years, focusing my practice on helping people with bill problems. I’m licensed to practice law in New York and California, and take professional responsibility seriously.
From 2012 until 2018 I helped to build and run The Student Loan Law Workshop, the first and largest training ground for attorneys seeking to learn how to help their clients with educational debts. I personally trained over 300 attorneys in the field of student loan law during that time, putting them in a position to help borrowers and their families level the playing field.
I also represent people in bankruptcy court, and was the first lawyer in New York to get the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to rule a creditor’s refusal to update a credit report after bankruptcy to show the debt as being discharged and having a $0 balance is a violation of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. In the cases of Torres v. Chase Bank USA, NA, Russell v. Chase Bank USA, NA and Gilyard-McKenzie v. HSBC Bank USA, NA the courts agreed that consumers had the right to have their credit reports properly updated after bankruptcy.
I’m also the host of the critically acclaimed Student Loan Show, and am quoted frequently by the media on matters concerning educational debt and consumer credit in general.
Don’t take my word for it. The only way to make a hiring decision is to independently verify my credentials, listen to what other people have to say about me, and spend some time here. If you come away with a good feeling about things, reach out for an appointment.
