Reliable Advice From an Experienced Lawyer
My promise is simple – I’ll help you understand all your options when it comes to your student loans.

If you need my help, you’ll know exactly what you’re getting and I’ll do my very best work for you.
I’ve been a lawyer for over 20 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.

Beware of Scammers
There is no shortage of companies offering student loan counseling. In fact, you’ve probably heard from at least a few of them.
Many have official-sounding names, and others are run by lawyers. They promise lower payments, forgiveness, and settlements. Some companies go so far as to guarantee amazing settlements, and explain that they can get lenders to disappear once they demand copies of the loan documents.
All of these companies make big promises but offer little in the way of actionable information. Ever wonder why?
The answer is simple – the less you know, the more reliant you are on these companies and the fewer questions you’ll ask. This makes it easier for them to get you to spend thousands of dollars for services you can perform on your own at no cost.
