Before you file for bankruptcy, we need to talk.
Why? Because for some people, bankruptcy is the best option. And for others, bankruptcy is completely unnecessary.
You’ve been reading stuff online for so long your eyes are burning. Every site you visit, there’s another conflicting opinion. It’s as if nobody knows the answers.
Guess what? Not only do I know the answers, I’m happy to give them to you and let you make up your own mind.
I’m a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys as well as of theNational Association of Consumer Advocates. I’ve been the New York State co-Chairperson for NACBA for over two years.
In addition, I’m a co-founder and current President of the Bankruptcy Law Network.
I have been a New York bankruptcy lawyer since 1995, helping thousands of New Yorkers file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. My clients come from all walks of life – from the single mom struggling to get by and raise her family to families strung out by overwhelming medical bills.
My job is to help you get out of debt and re-build your life. And working together, we can do it.
My clients know they can count on me to take on the toughest cases, and to work to get the results the deserve. In fact, I was the first lawyer in New York to get the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to rule – in multiple cases – that the refusal of a creditor to update a credit report after bankruptcy to show the debt as being discharged and having a $0 balance was 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 with me that my clients had the right to have their credit reports properly updated.
How do I do it? By understanding not only the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, but all the other laws that impact consumers – the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Truth In Lending Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, and more.
Every year I spend countless weeks in conference halls, listening to and learning from the greatest legal minds from around the country. I take the best advice, the strongest tactics and the most convincing arguments and adapt them to my clients’ needs.
After all, learning never ends – the law changes every day, and my job is to make sure I’m on top of new developments.
My days are filled with reviewing hundreds of new court decisions and speaking with experts from around the country. If I don’t know about a new legal development it could cost my client their case – and that’s just not acceptable.
Here’s what you need to do now.
You need to call me at 646-722-8649 to set up an appointment to talk. We’ll map out a plan of action, figure out how I can help you, and decide if we’re going to work together. And I won’t charge you a dime until we decide if we’re going to work together.No cost, no obligation, no worries. Drop me a line or give me a call.
