Antelope Valley Bankruptcy
Looking for the right bankruptcy lawyer in the Antelope Valley?
You’ve come to the right website.
Why go down below? We’ve got some good Antelope Valley bankruptcy lawyers right here in the AV.
Although the “best bankruptcy lawyer in the Antelope Valley” for you may not be not be the same bankruptcy lawyer for someone else. We’re all different. But, as an Antelope Valley consumer bankruptcy attorney I can help you review the AV bankruptcy lawyers online and help you find the one that’s best for you.
Ideally, you’d interview them all personally, then try to make a decision who is “best.” That means filling out a bunch of long 30-page bankruptcy questionnaires. Then calling and setting up a bunch of appointments. Finally, you’ll need to sit down with them all and interview them, trying to get a feel for which AV bankruptcy lawyer is the “best” to you. But this will take hours. Maybe even dozens of hours.
But Google can be your friend
Instead of interviewing all these lawyers, why not just do a little bit of research using our old friend Google. Go to Google and put in “best bankruptcy attorney in antelope valley” and check out the results. You’ll find reviews — and the experiences — from other people. See which Palmdale bankruptcy attorneys with 5 or more reviews stand out.
Is the attorney website personable and helpful, or just an ad?
Then visit some lawyer websites. The attorney websites tell you a lot about the approach of the lawyer. Firstly, is the website informative, or does it just tell you basics about their business. Is it written dryly and boring, or is it engaging and personable. These distinctions are important when looking for bankruptcy lawyer. Do you want someone stuffy who talks down to you, or someone who is caring and empathetic. Maybe the lawyer website can help you tell how they share bankruptcy information, or if they’re personable… or not.
Are they a part-time Antelope Valley bankruptcy lawyer?
Secondly, look some more at the lawyer website. Are they open every day, or just every now and then. You want someone who has a full-time presence in the Antelope Valley. If you need to drop off documents, is their office closed more days than it’s open? I’m in court a lot because I go to personally be there for our clients. Sometimes I’m not in the office. But we’re open every day, and there’s a warm friendly helpful teammate of mine there every day, even if I’m not.
Finally, to find the best bankruptcy attorney, maybe the attorney website reveals the Antelope Valley bankruptcy office is not the main office, but just a branch. You are searching for bankruptcy attorneys in the AV, but what you maybe find is a bankruptcy lawyer who is from down below. Someone from down below who comes up to the Antelope Valley a couple days a week isn’t really a AV bankruptcy attorney. They’re an LA lawyer posing as an AV bankruptcy lawyer. We have only one office, and it’s in Palmdale, CA. Why? Because I’m a AV bankruptcy attorney.
We have an AV bankruptcy office serving all the high desert communities. We’ve even had clients from Edwards AFB drive down. We’re no strangers to the AV. I see the poppies every year, and have successfully filed thousands of Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases.
An Antelope Valley bankruptcy attorney for years
Our bankruptcy attorney office has been in the AV from back before the real estate bubble burst. Our first office was over by the car dealerships, before the new hospital was built. Since then, we’ve moved to be more conveniently located, right off the Antelope Valley freeway. In fact, we’re right off the 14, near Enterprise and 5 Street West.
We were able to help many people in the AV when the bubble did burst. Home were underwater, no equity, and people were wondering if they should keep paying their mortgages. We were happy that we got to remove many second mortgages with a “lien strip” Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In fact, our Chapter 13 success rate is 20 times the average for our district.
Fortunately, much of Antelope Valley’s home values have recovered now. We’re still here, though. People don’t need help to stop foreclosure in the AV so much now. Lately, it’s more helping people who’ve lost a job, are being sued, or just can’t afford to drive down below anymore on the 14 because of time not spent with family.
Expect experience, and also bedside manner
You’re probably going to file bankruptcy once in your life. It’s a big deal. Think of it like a surgery. You’d want a doctor who has done this thousands of times, but also is caring and understands what you’re going through.
Expect the same from your Antelope Valley bankruptcy lawyer. Not only that your future bankruptcy attorney has over 5 reviews, most of them good. More than that their attorney office is open every day. Not merely that their website feels conversational, like the AV bankruptcy attorney is talking to you, not at you. You always should expect that your future lawyer files bankruptcy cases. And also that the bankruptcy lawyer is compassionate and can help you through a difficult time making you feel cared for, not judged.
An AV Bankruptcy Attorney with you in Bankruptcy Court
What helps someone feel cared for is when their attorney is at bankruptcy court for them, with them. Every debtor to file bankruptcy has to attend a 341(a) Meeting of Creditors. This is where creditors can show up and question you under oath. A bankruptcy trustee will certainly ask questions, looking for assets that they can take and sell to give to your credit card debts.
A bankruptcy lawyer has to have someone be there, but it doesn’t have to be your AV bankruptcy attorney. It can be any lawyer. They may not even know anything about you. You’ll feel more comforted if your bankruptcy attorney is there with you. And this lawyer usually is there himself. Yes, I make the drive when others won’t. For no other reason other than if I were in your shoes, the day I’m testifying in bankruptcy court, I want my Antelope Valley bankruptcy lawyer there with me.
Where is the local Bankruptcy Court?
In the Antelope Valley, if you file bankruptcy, you will need to attend the bankruptcy court that is located in downtown Los Angeles, not the Lancaster courthouse. It used to be at the San Fernando Valley bankruptcy court, but that was way back in 2009. Since then, anyone to file bankruptcy goes to Los Angeles.
Do other bankruptcy lawyers go to downtown L.A.?
Most other Antelope Valley bankruptcy lawyers don’t go to L.A. You know how I know? Because I’m there, and I don’t see them. Why don’t the other AV bankruptcy lawyers leave the comfort of the 661 area code? You don’t need me to tell you. It’s like a 90-minute drive to Los Angeles from the AV without traffic. But bankruptcy hearings aren’t at 11 a.m. They’re at 8 or 9 in the morning. Guess what time you have to leave Quartz Hill to arrive in Los Angeles at 8am. Add some morning rush-hour traffic and it can easily become three hours, sometimes more. Not counting the trip home. You don’t need me to tell you that even a Antelope Valley bankruptcy attorney has to set their alarm for 4:30 am if they’ll attend with you.
The majority of Antelope Valley bankruptcy attorneys don’t make the drive from the Antelope Valley to downtown Los Angeles. Because that’s easily five hours out of their day, and they’d rather stay back in their comfy office while you sweat it out so they can get work done. They hire a stranger to be with you, someone you’ve likely never met before.
Think about it.
After the stress of traffic, finding a parking space, it’s time to find the room. Then, full of anxiety, it’s time to testify, under oath, in a room with a sign on the wall saying the FBI investigates bankruptcy crime. You’re freaking out. Do you want to meet a stranger for the first time who doesn’t know you, you’re not comfortable with, doesn’t know your personality or story? Of course not.
We’re full-service so you don’t testify with a stranger
This is one Antelope Valley bankruptcy attorney who knows their way around the bankruptcy court. Why? Because you’re not alone. We usually personally attend.
That’s why we do what the other Antelope Valley bankruptcy attorneys won’t do. I typically make the drive to downtown Los Angeles to be with my clients. The same familiar Antelope Valley bankruptcy lawyer you consulted with, signed with, is there for you when you’re sweating bullets downtown. Yes, I also lose about half a day of work, but I just feel it’s a higher priority to take care of an existing client on their big day instead of chasing new ones. Google “bankruptcy lawyer in Palmdale” and ask the other bankruptcy lawyers that.
