I am now a local Bankruptcy Attorney for Riverside County.
I have been filing cases here for over three years but have recently decided to move my family to be able to service more bankruptcy clients. The riverside bankruptcy court is the busiest bankruptcy court in the country. In 2009 there were close to 120,000 cases filed here. The second largest was in Florida with 60,000 cases. Most of my business has come from this area for quite some time, but I also handled cases in Oakland, San Jose, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Modesto, Sacramento. I will still take cases in the Northern and Eastern District and either fly there for the 341 hearing or pay a special appearance to do so.
My new focus will be serving the people of Riverside County and will occasionally drive to San Diego or L.A. for cases that I take on there. I have an a great relationship with many of the trustees in Riverside and have already built trust in the cases that I have been filing in Riverside court for 3 years.
Bankruptcy can be very predictable if I have all the facts and I have never had a client who did not get a discharge or have their case go in the direction that I predicted.
It’s best to talk to a bankruptcy attorney before allowing your situation to get worse. There are a lot of things we can do to protect your assets and prepare for a case and I can advise you on pitfalls not to take and make sure you keep things that are exempt currently in that position. It troubles me to see people who have cashed out retirement funds and other exempt items and ended up filing for bankruptcy anyways.
Please talk to me before its too late or you make decisions that you shouldn’t have.
