Remember the Meaning of Memorial Day

It has been my distinct Honor, pleasure and privilege to have been an officer in the United States Navy Reserve for more than 26 years. Hopefully, I will be able to complete 4 more years before my mandatory retirement at 30 years of commissioned service. During my Naval career I have met and worked with the finest, most dedicated, patriotic men and women in America, our servicemembers. They willingly go in "harm’s  way" on our behalf and ask very little in return. All they ask is that we Honor their service and remember and revere them if they are called upon to make "the ultimate sacrifice." On this Memorial Day weekend, I call upon all of my  colleagues of the Bar and the Bench and my fellow citizens to remember the real reason we celebrate this Memorial Day Holiday. To take a moment and say a silent prayer for the fallen heroes who made it possible for us to enjoy this weekend and to celebrate with our loved ones. If you should see a Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine this weekend, go out of your way to shake his or her hand and say “thank you for your service.” They will appreciate it and you’ll feel great for doing it. Have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend

    Over the last few months I have had several consultations with potential clients who at first appear to be eligible for chapter 7 bankruptcy. They own no real estate nor business and have little if any money in bank or brokerage accounts. Everything appears to be on track until a little more questioning reveals the following: ...

    It’s Spring! The traditional time to clean up from old man winter. This year instead of  just thinking about Spring cleaning for your home, why not  consider cleaning up those old debts as well? Why anguish over 18, 19 and 20% interest rates on Christmas bills from 2009 when bankruptcy may offer a way to ... Read more
