About this pro

I have been an attorney since 2008, and my primary practice area is bankruptcy. Last year alone I filed over 100 bankruptcy cases for my clients. However, it is my focus on quality, and not quantity, that my clients appreciate the most. I enjoy listening to each client explain their situation, and then helping them find a legal solution that works for that specific person. The legal system is complicated - and I love helping my clients understand all of their options, and then guiding them to financial relief. If you're facing garnishment, foreclosure, aggressive debt collectors, or you just have too many financial burdens, let me help you through it!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I offer a free in-person consultation, which usually lasts about an hour. In order to file a bankruptcy case, I will need several documents from you, such as pay stubs, tax returns, car titles, and bank statements. I will send a detailed list before our initial meeting. I always recommend that you bring these documents to the initial meeting, if possible. However, I do not require it — you can always bring those later. At our meeting we will discuss what options are available (and which I recommend for that person). If we decide to proceed with a bankruptcy, I will the rest of your documents, and I will need you to take a special "bankruptcy credit counseling class." This can be done online or over the phone, and I will give you more information about it. Unfortunately, bankruptcy attorneys cannot —by law— accept any fees from you after filing the case, so I will need to be paid in full before we can file. We can discuss payment options and strategies in our meeting. We will then meet one more time to review all the court documents that I prepared, to make sure that everything is true, correct, and complete. Once you sign and approve the documents, I can file them electronically with the courthouse the same day!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a licensed attorney in both Oklahoma and California. I am originally from California and began practicing law there in 2008, but moved to Oklahoma in 2014. After moving here, I was admitted to practice in federal court in Oklahoma City (where bankruptcy cases are filed), and I also took and passed the Oklahoma Bar Exam. I am also licensed as a real estate broker with the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission. I am a member of the Bankruptcy Section of the Oklahoma County Bar Association, and regularly attend meetings to continue to learn more about bankruptcy.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I charge a flat fee for my services.  In addition, there will be court costs.  I will quote a price for each customer depending on the complexity of the case.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I work with individuals, primarily those facing financial hardships. I have helped clients of every income level file for bankruptcy protection — I've helped clients on a fixed income or earning minimum wage, as well as former business owners with over a million dollars of debt. I don't represent large corporations filing for bankruptcy.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Ask the attorney how much personal attention he or she gives to each case. Do they only handle meetings and court appearances? Do they assign most of your case to a secretary or paralegal? Ask the attorney whether filing bankruptcy is your only option, and what other options look like. Should you sell your house instead? Would a short sale be a better option. If you are considering a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, ask the attorney what he or she thinks your approximate monthly payment will be. If the attorney can't give you an estimate by the end of the meeting, then they probably don't understand bankruptcy as well as they should.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Always talk to an attorney, and sooner than later. The earlier you start talking about your financial problems, the more options you will have available to you.
