"I believe that communication and timeliness are the keys to my professional relationships. I listen carefully to what my clients tell me and I try to put myself in their shoes. Oftentimes the end goal isn't what the client intends in our first meeting. By listening and asking the right questions, We can jointly determine the best course of action to resolve their issues, and I strive to answer all their concerns promptly."

Paul is the co-chairman of the firm's Insolvency Department. His practice deals with sophisticated workout and bankruptcy matters, representing both creditors and individuals or companies facing financial difficulties.

His additional specialties include: Creditor's Rights; Business/Corporate and Real Estate.
