Bankruptcy Overview

In my 25-plus years as a bankruptcy attorney in Grand Rapids, I have seen many things. The clients who lost their nest eggs because of unexpected medical bills. Those who lost their jobs and couldn't keep up with their mortgages. The multiple others whose student loans, car payments, credit card debt and other bills made it impossible to reach their goals.

Whatever financial challenges you face — no matter how you got here — you are not alone. As your lawyer, I can help you determine if financial relief is just around the corner through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code, or whether you should seek debt settlement or another alternative to bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy clients often tell me that they started to feel better after our very first meeting. I cannot make bankruptcy pain-free. There will be tough decisions that you will need to make along the way. But I can reduce your anxiety by providing you with the support and advice you need to make the best decisions for your future.

Since 1985, I have helped hundreds of people:

I focus my practice largely on personal bankruptcy, but I also have experience helping creditors with preferential transfer defense and fraudulent conveyance defense. By understanding what happens on both sides of these cases, I am able to prepare my clients for a wide array of circumstances.
