Since 1981, my practice has focused on lending, enforcement of liens, and banking law for financial institutions. I advise clients concerning a broad array of lending, collateral, foreclosure, enforcement, regulatory, contract, real estate and general banking issues. I prepare commercial and consumer loan documents and handle foreclosure of real and personal property collateral. I also handle account issues such as account disputes, garnishments and levies.
