Our attorneys possess combined decades of practice experience inside and outside the courtroom, and they’re driven by a common love of seeing people triumph when the odds seem to be overwhelmingly against them. We routinely apply our own knowledge and compassion for others to further our clients’ understanding of how bankruptcy filing procedures and protection mechanisms work. By keeping those we serve better informed, we’re able to make genuine positive differences in the lives of countless Californians.

We continuously strive to improve our mediation and litigation skills. No matter whether you want to manage your debt in a formal court setting or resolve the situation on your own terms, you can depend on us to help you master the fine details.
