Mission Statement

The goal of this debtor protection practice is to offer legal services as well as practical counseling for the purpose of helping people find financial stability on the path to economic independence.

I believe that the strength of any society depends on the economic strength of its people, no matter if they are rich, middle class or poor.

I am dedicated to opposing those laws which allow national banks to charge consumers usury and loan sharking interest rates, while embracing those laws which offer protection from collection for consumers.

I am dedicated to offering practical counseling to assist people to achieve economic stability and ultimately financial independence.

Throughout this mission, my focus is on preserving integrity, courtesy, and honesty, while maintaining my obligation toward my client’s strategic best interest.

I am honored by every opportunity offered by people who seek my service as stated above.
