I am an Assistant Attorney General with the Office of the Attorney General of Texas. I am a member of the Bankruptcy & Collections Division and I manage the Bankruptcy Regulatory Team. I am board certified in business bankruptcy law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and the American Board of Specialization. Together with Dan Eliades, I was co-editor of the American Bar Association’s "Bankruptcy Handbook for Franchisors and Franchisees," the only full-length book substantively analyzing the intersections of bankruptcy and franchise law. I am a former editor of the Franchise Law Journal and I am a frequent author and speaker on bankruptcy-related issues.
