I was originally born in Poughkeepsie New York in 1950 to Harold and Elizabeth Orcutt and was the third oldest of 5 children. Upon graduating high-school and undergrad I attended law school at Albany Law School in 1975. I worked in New York doing wills and contract law until I moved to North Carolina in 1987 and began practicing consumer bankruptcy law. That same year I opened my first law office on Six Forks Rd in Georgetown office condominiums in Raleigh. At one point I practiced both personal injury and bankruptcy until I realized that making law on behalf of North Carolina consumer bankruptcy clients was more gratifying. During the 1990's I began to expand my practice to Durham, to Fayetteville, to Wilson, to Garner and now Greensboro.
