Bankruptcy and Your Financial Fresh Start
My clients are now experiencing life without the stress and worry from the IRS or from overdue bills, debt collectors, collections lawsuits, auto repossessions and home foreclosures. My Chapter 7 bankruptcy clients have gotten relief from credit cards and repossessions, and my Chapter 13 bankruptcy clients have saved their homes from mortgage foreclosure.
Social Security Disability Claims
I also represent people with Social Security Disability claims. If you have been denied by Social Security, then you will have 60 days from the date of your denial to request a hearing. This is when it can be most helpful to have an attorney review your claim. Due to the Social Security Disability rules, your age is extremely important, with claimants over the age of 50 having the best chance of success. In addition, you must have regular medical treatment, and it is important that your treating physician be supportive of your disability claim.
Almost all of my clients have gone some form of financial hardship, such as job loss or loss of income, or divorce or some form of medical problem. They may have had bad luck, but they’re still good people. You probably have lots of questions about the areas in which I specialize (bankruptcy, IRS tax help, Social Security Disability claims and Student Loan assistance). I can answer those questions for you. I have made it my job to learn as much about the law as possible in order to help my clients make the best possible decisions. I’ve been a lawyer in Pittsburgh since 1993 and I’m a member of the following organizations:
- National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys;
- National Association of Consumer Advocates;
- American Society of Tax Problem Resolution Specialists;
- National Association of Enrolled Agents;
- National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives.
I have recently moved my office from Greentree to 7240 McKnight Road in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. I’ve had this same office since 1997.
My roots in Pittsburgh go much deeper however, as I grew up here and got my law degree from the University of Pittsburgh Law School. I’m a proud father of three children.
I hope that you learn more about your legal rights from this website. I also invite you to email me questions about specific legal subjects. Nevertheless, a web site is not a substitute for meeting with me face-to-face.
Call my office to make an appointment; I am frequently available to meet with prospective clients in the evenings and weekends as well.
For your fresh start, I encourage you to contact my office for a free consultation to evaluate your best solutions to your legal problems. My office offers a road map for your financial future and to getting a fresh start.
