Personal Bankruptcy ◊ Foreclosure ◊ Divorce and Family Law ◊ Support, Custody and Visitation ◊ Call 216-591-1455

My practice includes:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I handle all aspects of a Chapter 7 (liquidation) proceeding, helping you identify those debts that can be discharged, as well as those assets that can be excluded from sale. I will work with you before you file to determine whether you meet the means test required for Chapter 7. To learn more, see my page on Chapter 7 bankruptcy .
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. If you fail to qualify for protection under Chapter 7 or want to fully repay your creditors, I will help you file an application for reorganization of your debt under Chapter 13. I will examine any proposed repayment plans to make certain they are within your means and will be your advocate with the bankruptcy court and with your creditors. For additional information, go to my page on Chapter 13 bankruptcy .
  • Divorce and Dissolution. I work closely with men and women at all stages of a divorce or dissolution proceeding, from the decision to file through post-judgment requests for modification or enforcement of existing divorce orders. I handle all matters related to divorce or dissolution, including child support, child custody and visitation, spousal support, domestic violence, and the division of marital debts and assets. See my page on divorce and dissolution for additional information.
  • Child Support, Child Custody and Visitation . I will review any proposed child support order to ensure that it complies with Ohio guidelines and that all relevant income is properly considered. I will also help you establish and implement custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interests or your children while protecting your rights as a parent.
  • Foreclosures . Foreclosures are a growing problem in Northern Ohio. This office takes an aggressive approach to defending the individual in the foreclosure process. This approach is beneficial in many instances. It helps the client reach an accommodation with the mortgage company either through the court process or through the filing of a chapter 13 proceeding.

I also advise clients in matters involving DUI, juvenile law, personal injury and real estate.
