Background

In 1987, I was admitted to the South Carolina Bar and to SC District Court. I started practicing bankruptcy law in 1989. Since 1995 I have been primarily representing consumer debtors, mostly in bankruptcy court. In 2007 I was admitted to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.

My practice focuses on defending consumers in debt collection lawsuits including foreclosure, credit card collections and consumer bankruptcy.

In consumer bankruptcy I have particular experience in privacy violations, Chapter 13 attorney fee applications, 524(I) Chapter 13 plan language and defense of motions for relief from stay. I have neither applied for nor been recognized as a certified bankruptcy specialist or expert by the SC Supreme Court.
