I currently practice in the Northern, Middle and Southern Districts of Georgia, as well as, the Eastern District of Tennessee.
I have more than 20 years of experience preparing and filing thousands of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 petitions in the above locations. In 2005, I met all the rigorous educational requirements and became certified as a specialist in Consumer Bankruptcy, which is governed by the American Board of Certification. In 2006, I began working as in house counsel for the Chapter 13 Trustee, gaining a world of experience and knowledge. In 2010, I returned to the private practice of law.
