A Bankruptcy Specialist Guiding You
Living with debt and dealing with abusive creditors is stressful. I can lead you out of debt and can keep the creditors at bay. I can find solutions that allow you to keep your house and other assets.
I have practiced in bankruptcy for more than 25 years. In fact, I am certified as a specialist in bankruptcy law. But it’s not only my credentials that clients appreciate. It’s the compassion and personal attention I provide during a dark and anxious time in their life. I enjoy helping ordinary people who are struggling financially to get a fresh start. I also enjoy going after shady bill collectors and mortgage servicers on behalf of my clients.
Located in Goldsboro, I handle bankruptcy and related consumer advocacy in Wayne County and the coastal communities of eastern North Carolina.

Powerful Advocacy In Bankruptcy And Consumer Law
At my practice, we try to see the “big picture” and help our clients on several fronts. Since 1993, I have devoted me legal career to providing debt relief and consumer advocacy:
- I help people file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection, as well as small businesses in Chapter 11 reorganizations.
- I pursue legal action against creditors and collection agencies who violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
- I help homeowners correct mistakes by mortgage servicing companies, including errors that can lead to foreclosure.
I have an in-depth understanding of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, the North Carolina bankruptcy exemptions, and state and federal consumer protection laws. I couple debt reduction strategies with assertive action against creditors, mortgage companies and third-party debt collectors.
Highly Qualified And Motivated To Help
I am certified as a bankruptcy specialist by the North Carolina State Bar. Only a fraction of bankruptcy lawyers have earned this designation, based on their focused knowledge and proven advocacy.
I have received the Distinguished Service Award from the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and was named to the Legal Elite of 2012 by Business North Carolina magazine. I also attended Max Gardner’s Bankruptcy Boot Camp, an intensive training session that includes reviewing bankruptcy cases for abusive creditor behavior.
As a respected authority, I frequently gives presentations on bankruptcy and consumer protection topics to other lawyers through Continuing Legal Education seminars across the state. I also testified before the U.S. House of Representatives on proposed legislation to address private student loans in bankruptcy.
I am also a Navy veteran who served four years with a helicopter squadron in the western Pacific.
