I received my law degree from George Washington University School of Law in 1980, and graduated number one in my law school class. Before receiving my law degree, I was an active duty Naval Officer and served in a variety of technical and managerial positions before retiring from active duty in 1981 with 20 years of military service. In addition to my law degree, I have an undergraduate degree (Bachelor of Science) in physics and a graduate degree (Master of Science) in electrical engineering.I am a member of the Bar of the United States Supreme Court, the Virginia State Bar, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the Federal and Bankruptcy Bars for the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia, and the Washington, D.C. Bar (currently inactive).For the past fifteen years I have maintained an active law practice in the consumer bankruptcy area, and have handled in excess of 2,000 Chapter 7 bankruptcies during that time. Virtually every bankruptcy that I have handled has been approved by the Bankruptcy Court, and I have developed a reputation for integrity and competence with the bankruptcy trustees and the Bankruptcy Court Judge, which has materially benefited my many clients.I work independently, with no support staff, which means that clients will always deal directly with me concerning their legal issues, without having to go through a secretary or other screening process in order to contact me. This also means that I am able to keep my fees reasonable, due to the reduced overhead expenses associated with my practice. I answer my own telephone and, if I am not immediately available to the phone, I always return telephone messages.I am very direct in my approach to clients. I believe that clients contact me in order to receive the most accurate and honest advice and guidance possible, and I do not sugar coat my advice or guidance to my clients. You may not always be pleased with the outcome of a particular legal proceeding or with the advice that I provide, but you can be assured that I will always represent you honestly and diligently, and will exert my best efforts to achieve the desired result.If you meet the eligibility standards for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, I would be pleased to represent you in connection with that matter.Call my office for a free telephone consultation—I will be pleased to speak with you!
