Paul received his Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from Widener University School
of Law in 2005 and his bachelor’s degree from Shippensburg University
in 2001. Since graduating from law school, Paul’s law practice has
been focused in the areas of money and finance. He has represented a significant
number of consumer debtors in
Chapter 7 and
Chapter 13 bankruptcies. Paul also has represented business debtors in corporate
liquidation bankruptcy (Chapter 7) and corporate reorganization bankruptcy (Chapter 11), as well as creditors in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.
Paul has established a reputation as a compassionate and experienced attorney
dedicated to helping his clients with their personal legal issues. If
you are facing an overwhelming financial situation and need assistance
evaluating your legal options, including bankruptcy, you can rest assured
that Paul will be your advocate and address your questions and concerns
in a timely manner throughout the entire process. You will meet with him
personally, not with an assistant or a paralegal. Paul will personally
discuss your case facts and he will explain how the laws apply to your
situation. He will then discuss whether a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 filing
might be in your best interest. He offers a flat attorney’s fee
as he does not believe in charging extra for services, which he believes,
should be included in a normal bankruptcy case.
In his spare time Paul dedicates his time to various organizations as well
as being an active member in his local high school alumni association.
In addition, Paul enjoys spending time at home with his two children and
he enjoys playing golf.
