Who I Can Represent, And Where
My practice is limited to bankruptcy courts in the State of California.
I represent debtors (those needing to file bankruptcy) and creditors (those owed money by a party who filed a bankruptcy) in Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 cases if the cases are filed as set forth below.
Within California, I have set the following limitations on my representation. These are based on where the bankruptcy case is to be filed (if you are a debtor) or has been filed (if you are a creditor), which usually is based on where the debtor has resided for the greater part of the past 180 days prior to the case being filed.
Bankruptcy Case Filed or To Be Filed in:
Central District of California (which includes Los Angeles and surrounding counties, including Orange, Riverside, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo):
Chapter 7: All Counties
Chapter 13: Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara Counties
Chapter 11: Los Angeles County Only.
Northern and Eastern Districts of California (which includes all counties north and east of San Luis Obispo):
Chapter 7 only, for debtors only.
Southern District of California (which includes San Diego):
Chapter 7 cases only, for debtors only.
There may be further limitations depending on the complexity of your case, travel time to the courts, etc.
The only way to determine which Chapter is best for you, and for which you are eligible, is to schedule a consultation.
