In the Bankruptcy Arena, I have successfully filed and discharged well over $100,000,000.00 (Yes! $100 million) in consumer debts, offering families a fresh start, free of creditor harassment, wage garnishments, liens, judgments, repossessions, bank levies and other inconveniences, yet allowing them to keep their homes, belongings and exempt assets. I have successfully represented both debtors and creditors alike. About 10% of all bankruptcy filings are randomly audited each year. After auditing one of our Bankruptcy petitions, the auditing firm stated: "We find the entire Petition to be completely error-free and meticulously prepared. We see no reason why the debtor would not be entitled to a full discharge, and highly recommend same to the Trustee".

I fully understand the mechanics of Retail Sales, Employee Management, Vendor Relations, Accounting, Pilferage, Community and Police Relations, Security Detail, as well as all other intricate but unknown facets which makeup a successful operation. It is backed by this solid foundation that I can confidently say: "I understand your problem and I can fix it".
