Good news! Due to the current pandemic situation:

You do not need to leave your home to obtain debt relief. We can prepare and file your bankruptcy case 100% remotely.

The one required trustee hearing in chapter 7 bankruptcy cases filed by October 10, 2020 will be conducted telephonically rather than in-person. In chapter 13 cases the trustee hearing will be conducted either telephonically or by videoconference.

Many Thousands of Successful Bankruptcy and Debt Settlement Cases since 1994

Call for a consultation. If your legal issues are outside of our areas of expertise, then we will gladly refer you to organizations and/or other professionals who may be able to better serve your legal services needs.

We recognize that each person’s financial circumstances and goals are different, therefore our experienced attorneys carefully consider all of the facts and circumstances of each case and evaluate all of the available options with our clients. Often times, we identify options which avoid the need for filing a bankruptcy. When bankruptcy is the best option it does not result in the permanent reduction of your credit score and end of your financial life. Instead, filing a bankruptcy may be the fastest path toward a higher credit score and a new financial beginning - a Fresh Start!

Our bankruptcy lawyers will assist you with:

  • creating payment plans
  • resolving foreclosure matters
  • implementing workout strategies (negotiating debt settlements)
  • managing litigation matters


We provide emergency protection from creditor actions to stay:

  • real property foreclosure
  • paycheck garnishment
  • bank account levies by judgment creditors, the IRS and the CA FTB.


We can often help you within 24 hours of contacting our office.

Our goal is to help you avoid bankruptcy, if possible.  If filing a bankruptcy case is your best option then we will help you with:

  • pre-bankruptcy planning (asset protection and exemption planning)
  • representation in Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13 cases
  • representation in Adversary Proceedings within a bankruptcy case
  • substituting into Chapter 13 cases after plan confirmation to help you modify your plan and finish your case
  • post-bankruptcy credit repair
