About Our Firm


My Salt Lake City, Utah, based law practice focuses exclusively on consumer bankruptcy law. I can help you decide if bankruptcy will solve your problems and which program, Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, is best suited to meet your financial needs. I have learned about the bankruptcy system in the District of Utah from the inside and out.

I worked in the Bankruptcy Court as a lawyer for a Bankruptcy Judge for three years, as senior staff counsel for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Trustee for over four years and in the bankruptcy and litigation sections in one of Salt Lake’s largest and best law firms.

Through my work, I discovered that I enjoyed helping clients deal with their difficult financial situations.  I have helped thousands of clients get the relief the need through consumer bankruptcy protection.  Read what my clients have to say about my services here.

I started my own law practice exclusively restricted to debtor representation in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings. Let me put my experience with the debt relief process and my knowledge of the local practice that I have built over the past twenty-seven years to work for you.

We are a federally-designated debt relief agency under the United States Bankruptcy Code proudly helping people file for bankruptcy relief.
