Lawyer for the People
Introduction

I am an attorney at the Western New York Law Center, Inc., a Buffalo, New York non-profit legal services corporation that helps consumers with foreclosure, debt, and other matters.  I am also a part-time law professor.  


I represent consumers in defense of debt collection lawsuits and in offensive actions against abusive debt collectors, creditors, and repossession companies. In the past I have also represented individuals whose civil rights were violated by the police or corrections officials.
Bragging rights
