My name is Brian and I have been a practicing attorney in Bankruptcy for over 20 years helping thousands of clients. 

I have worked for the Chief Judge of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington, as well as several small boutique Bankruptcy law firms handling Bankruptcy cases in Washington State and the State of California.  I have litigated for and against major banks, and I have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of clients in my career.

I have done over 300 pro bono cases in my career, and I take very seriously my responsibility to give you an honest appraisal of your situation.  We regularly counsel people not to file for Bankruptcy, even if it means that we don’t get paid, because we have your best interests at heart and we want you to be successful, inside or outside the Bankruptcy process.

Our firm believes in treating our clients with the highest level of professionalism and a humble heart.  We offer legal services at a cost-effective rate and we make the process easy for you.  We can pull your credit report and help you file from your own home.  Check out my blog at https://www.cancelmybills.com/blog for guides on how to settle debts with your creditors as well as other useful tips to help manage debt relief.  In my spare time I teach self-defense and self-defense law to civilians and law enforcement.

My law partner who is also my husband and I serve our clients with the utmost professionalism and a humble heart. I have worked in the areas of personal injury, Bankruptcy, and criminal law for medium sized firms and a large nationwide law firm.  Of all the different types of legal clients that I have served in over fifteen years as a practicing attorney, I enjoy helping Bankruptcy clients the most, because I can provide them with an immediate and positive change to their lives.  When I am not working as an attorney, I have enjoyed working for our local food bank and women’s shelter.  In my time off, I enjoy Pilates and paddle boarding!
