Philadelphia Bankruptcy Attorney

You may see chapter 7 or chapter 13 as a last resort. But with proper financial planning and legal advisement on your side, bankruptcy can be the moment when you regain control of your finances. I want to support you with all the legal expertise, experience, creativity and deductive reasoning I have to give. My life has been dedicated to developing the skills and experience that allow me to help you navigate financially difficult times.


As an undergraduate at Pennsylvania State University, I served as an infantry soldier in the Pennsylvania National Guard and as a cadet in the R.O.T.C. My major in Criminal Justice led me to attend the New England School of Law in Boston. Once there, I honed in on bankruptcy law and was a scholarship recipient for “Securities Regulation.” I followed that with an internship at the Boston Stock Exchange and a clerkship for McGarthy & Ged. During this time, I learned how to help people find financial relief through legal action.

Professional Memberships and Recognition

Bankruptcy law changes every day. Right now, courts across the United States are making decisions that will impact your judge’s point of view on your case. As an effective consumer bankruptcy lawyer, I stay apprised of the most recent happenings in the field through active membership in the following organizations.

  • State Bar of Pennsylvania – Licensed to practice before all state courts, the United States District Court for the Eastern and Middle District of Pennsylvania, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
  • National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA)
  • National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA)

For my creative legal solutions and tireless defense of consumer rights, I have been named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer by Philadelphia Magazine and Pennsylvania Super Lawyer. You may also have seen my legal input featured on Fox News, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News and The Nation.

Charity and Pro-Bono Work

When I am not seeking out solutions for your case, I am looking for ways to make a positive impact in my community – whether that be on the local, state, national, or international level.

My volunteer activities have led to the creation of a 501(c)(3) non-profit titled the “Philadelphia-Serengeti Alliance” where I serve as the Chief Legal Officer (CLO). The organization will build 90 water wells in Tanzania, Africa to help local communities gain access to necessary water reserves.

I am also proud to serve as a volunteer attorney at the following organizations:

  • Philadelphia Consumer Bankruptcy Project
  • Philadelphia Senior Center
  • Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society
  • Philadelphia Volunteers for the Indigent Program
  • Nationalities Service Center
  • Philadelphia Homeless Advocacy Project
  • The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program
