Finding Positive Solutions to Your Legal Situations

When you are confronted with a difficult legal situation — either personally or professionally — you should never attempt to face it on your own. Your best option is always to put the skills and knowledge of an experienced attorney to work on your case. I focus my practice on helping individuals and companies in the Gainsville, FL area navigate complicated legal situations and pursue favorable outcomes to their cases.

If you are facing a financial crisis, filing for bankruptcy can be an overwhelming decision. Having a qualified bankruptcy attorney by your side to give insight and direction can help you understand your options and allow you to make an informed decision for your financial future. I have guided clients through both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings and can work with you to explain which options are available to you in your case.

Bankruptcy is not a foregone conclusion, but as your attorney, I will be with you step by step throughout the process.

Businesses frequently face complex legal matters, but retaining the services of a skilled commercial litigation attorney can put your company in a strong position to defend its present and protect its future. In cases involving breaches of contract, internal or external disputes, collections, or business formation and dissolution, I will fight aggressively on behalf of your company and always work in your business interests.

I also have extensive experience helping clients work through real estate litigation, the foreclosure process, and finding potential alternatives to foreclosure. Your home is not only a valuable asset, but it is where you live your life. Finding satisfying solutions and helping you fight to protect your property is something I take very seriously. You can count on me to stand by your side.
