Bankruptcy Information and Philosophy:
Thank you for taking the time to visit my Los Angeles California based bankruptcy website. I hope the information here helps you whether you are a debtor or a creditor, and whether or not you hire me to represent you. My office is located in the Burbank area of Los Angeles County, California and I have been practicing as a bankruptcy attorney and lawyer in this area since 1991.
Bankruptcy is a powerful yet flexible tool which legally allows you to eliminate or repay debts at less than 100%, remove certain mortgage liens, and do many other things in order to allow you to achieve a fresh start financially. It is important to have an attorney and lawyer who is experienced in the nuances of bankruptcy law, cares about your personal situation, and can make the process as simple and painless as possible for you.
My office handles both consumer bankruptcy and business bankruptcy cases and representation of Debtors, Creditors and Trustees in Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 in Los Angeles and throughout the State of California.
When filing bankruptcy, it is important to have an attorney who is experienced in the nuances and intricacies of bankruptcy law, cares about your personal situation, and will handle your bankruptcy-related problems the right way the first time.
CONVENIENCE: I structure my bankruptcy law practice in a way to maximize the convenience to my clients, making the process as quick, easy and painless as possible for them, while also maintaining the efficiency and quality of my representation. Among other ways I do this by handling the vast majority of work in cases via telephone and e-mail thereby reducing unnecessary time spent traveling for my clients.
ALL WORK DONE BY ME: All legal work done on your case is done by one bankruptcy attorney, and that is me and me alone in my Los Angeles area office. Except for larger business reorganization cases, I do not use any paralegals or secretaries or other bankruptcy lawyers.
FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION: I offer free initial phone consultations (certain days office appointments are also free) and all appointments and consultation information can be submitted easily online. This enables me to review your information, anticipate problems and request additional information before our initial appointment. The reason for this is to maximize the accuracy and efficiency of our meeting because I value your time. (Click Here to schedule a consultation)
AVAILABILITY: As your bankruptcy lawyer and attorney, I am available by e-mail throughout the day (and often much of the night) by e-mail to address client concerns as well as in my Burbank office by appointment.
PROFESSIONAL AND AFFORDABLE: In short, my philosophy as a bankruptcy attorney is to help my clients accomplish their goals by handling their case the right way the first time for a fair, competitive and affordable fee. See my credentials before deciding.
