As the Family and Financial Fitness attorney I help individuals and families focus on enjoying life by reducing the stress of some of the most trying events they face. Some of these are obviously traumatic, such as the threat of foreclosure or the death of a loved one, but even happy occasions, like buying a new home or adopting a child, can lead to serious problems if not carefully planned and executed.
I help my clients achieve this goal through careful planning for the future, using tools like estate planning and asset protection, vigilantly conducting transactions and events such as buying or selling a house or settling the estate of a deceased loved one, and resolving disputes that do arise using a mutually beneficial cooperative/collaborative approach when possible with techniques like facilitative mediation and collaborative divorce. Of course, depending on the philosophy of the other parties involved, this might not be an option. In that case, traditional litigation remains an option to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients.
Because many of my clients have debt problems that cannot be resolved in any other way, or they need emergency help to stop foreclosures, evictions, garnishments, law suits, and creditor harassment, one of the services I offer is bankruptcy. I have been designated as a debt relief agency and assist clients to obtain discharge of debts under federal bankruptcy laws.
