  • Leadership — provided by three former presidents of the Bankruptcy Bar Association for the District of Maryland

A Commanding, Balanced Presence In Your Bankruptcy Case Or Workout Effort

We have earned a reputation for creativity and efficiency as well as legal skill and integrity. Our attorneys are prepared to confront and resolve the most complex situations on behalf of debtors, creditors and trustees, providing:
