Credit Card Debt Litigation Defense

Knowing how to respond to lawsuits brought by credit card companies can mean the difference between saving or paying quite a lot of money. In most cases, we can save our clients thousands of dollars by expertly defending against credit card company lawsuits, or when warranted, negotiating a settlement.

Estate Planning

Despite the unsettling nature of contemplating death, it is crucial to proceed with drafting your Estate Planning documents, as this is the sole opportunity for you to personally make these significant decisions. When it’s too late…it’s too late.


When a loved one becomes unable to handle their own affairs, either because of an injury, illness, or aging, the Courts can appoint a Guardian to act on their behalf. However, becoming a Guardian is an endeavor that necessitates the Courts’ approval. Our office can assist you in navigating this complex process, and position you for success.

Estate Administration

Losing a loved one is undoubtedly a difficult period for anyone. If you find yourself appointed as the Executor of their estate, the responsibilities can become even more overwhelming. However, our office is here to provide comprehensive support throughout the entire Estate Administration process, providing comfort during this difficult time.


With debt, there comes a point where “a lot” becomes “just too much.” In these cases, you may want to consider Bankruptcy. It is a complicated and time-intensive process, but can ultimately mean a path towards becoming debt free. An experienced attorney can expertly navigate this complex, time-intensive process.
