Summary

My professional approach to people and problems was developed during my time in the Military. I enlisted in the US Air Force out of high school and later earned my commission before retiring in 2008. My goal is to build relationships with my clients whether my time with them last months or years.. I am about more than just performing a legal task and collecting payment. Whether I am providing full-service representation or limited scope services, I work to make the process as smooth as possible, establishing trust and respect with all parties involved. We are a general practice firm and a good place to start if you are confused about your legal issues. The focus of my practice is consumer bankruptcy, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy cases, Immigration, Wills and simple estate planning, and Real Estate. I will sit down you, discuss the issues and help you decide if you want to move forward with a legal action or process. If, for some reason, I cannot directly assist you with the matter, I can assist you with finding another competent attorney that you can trust. Furthermore, I will work with the client and the referring attorney to make sure the client receives the same quality of legal service I would provide them myself.

Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered

Q. Can a divorced dad with full custody of his 13 yr old son go away on vacation and leave his son with his visiting mom?
A: At first blush I would say yes but is there a reason not to? For instance, do you have custody because the state took it away from her for some reason? Parents and make consensual temporary changes to custody orders. In fact, the court prefers parents working together. Do you have a concern his mother will abuse the extra time? It would be best to talk to a local family attorney but based of the fact you present, which are very few, I would not see a problem. The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
Q. My husband will soon be filing for divorce. He will be losing his job and receive a severance pay am I entitled to half
A: This is not a simple question. If you know your husband is planning to divorce you, you should be consulting a good family attorney now. He or she can help you plan. But his severance pay should be factored in somewhere. The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
Q. I am thinking of getting a divorce. I reside in Pennsylvania. How are assets and liabilities handled?
A: Wow, this is a broad question. In PA, we have "Equitable Distribution." That doesn't mean equal or 50/50. It means the court divides the martial property in the best way the parties can move on in a fair way... in theory anyway. So if you are the non-dependent spouse with an advanced degree and working in your chosen field, there is a good chance you will get less than 50% if your spouse is the dependent spouse who is a HS graduate who stayed home to take care of children and is going to have to go through great efforts to start or re-start a career. With that said, property can be negotiated. That is always best. The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
Q. I filed for a divorce in 2008 we have been separated since 2005 he would not sign the papers am I divorced or not??
A: No. You need to file for a master's hearing to finalize the divorce. In fact, you need to check with the county to see if your divorce is still active. If you haven't done anything since 2008, the case may have been dismissed for lack of activity. You are eligible to be divorce but you must do something to finalize it. You need to contact an attorney and get this going if it hasn't been dismissed. The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
Q. If I am married, can I file bankruptcy without my husband?
A: The quick answer is yes. The challenge is how to divide the bills and assets. But you can do it and should if you need it. The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
Q. My sister is in chater 13, my mother passed,how can I sell her house,as we are both co owners
A: Call your sister's attorney. The attorney can work with the trustee to get approval to sell the asset. The next issue will be how the proceeds going to your sister are used. The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
Q. New Chapter & Laws from this Januart
A: You should go back to the attorney who filed the bankruptcy. I do not believe an actual reaffirmation agree is required. I have had this with car loans and people just pay their payments. Talk to his attorney. The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
Q. Can public defenders in pa also engage in private practice?
A: In some counties yes. I do not know of any law or ethics code preventing it. Some counties only hire PD's on a part-time basis, especially smaller counties. The determination of getting a PD is need based. Another possibility is that attorney was a "conflicts" attorney. The PD, like all law offices, cannot represent two parties when they are going to testify against each other. So, the county has part-time PD's to take the second case. The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent through this form.
Q. What does it mean when it states "Confinement is Concurrent with Confinement"
A: It sounds like you pled or was convicted of more than one count on your criminal information. It sounds like your sentence on those to counts are running concurrent, meaning the at the same time. The other term is consecutive, which would mean they run one after the other. Concurrent is usually good.The use of the Internet or this form for communication with the firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
