I am a solo practitioner in Topeka, KS. I have practiced for 30 years in the bankruptcy arena. I was a chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee for 25 years before taking on debtor work full time about 10 years ago. I am a member of the Topeka Area Bankruptcy Council and former president of that organization of bankruptcy professionals in this area. I am a member of the State Bar of Kansas and practice in state and federal Courts in Kansas.

I am a former president of the National organization of Bankruptcy Trustees (NABT) which represents Chapter 7 trustees across the country. I have been a member of NABT since 1988. During my time as a bankruptcy trustee I had the privilege of contributing to the efforts and report of the National Bankruptcy Review Commission which was organized by Congress to submit a report on the state of bankruptcy in its report in 1997.

I file both chapter 7 and 13's in my area and devote my practice to the exclusive area of bankruptcy practice. I am married to my wife Karen who works for the Attorney General of the State of Kansas and I have two children, Alex and Kellen. Alex is a senior at Shawnee Heights High School. Kellen is a sophomore at Stevenson University in Owings Mills, MD. She plays college soccer and hockey at this school.
