After graduating from law school, I became a practicing lawyer. In my first employment  I worked as a claims adjuster for Allstate Insurance Company where I learned to investigate accidents, manage claims and negotiate settlements of those claims.

I then went into private law practice concentrating in the fields of business activities, real estate law and matrimonial law. During the 50+ years in the practice of law, I expertly handled the organization of thousands of businesses running the gambit from small to large and in many various forms of organization. Having an accounting degree, this allowed me to aid my business clients, whether they were purchasing an existing business or starting a new one, and further, allowing them to take advantage by my providing them with the best information that I could give them.

I also specialized in matrimonial law which required me to be able to assist my clients in negotiations where their business were being appraised and/or being sold to satisfy the laws concerning equitable distribution.

Even my being in the Army allowed me to be able to understand the problems dealing with events, and being involved in various charitable endeavors, sitting on various boards, has given me insight to problem solving and dealing with people.

       I’m currently in the planning stage for a new retail bakery. I’m going to need some funding for equipment, but my personal credit history is a bit spotty. How much is that going to hurt me, and how can I combat it?
