Ironically, the Valley town was named North Los Angeles in 1929 to show how close it was to Los Angeles. This caused confusion, especially with North Hollywood in the picture. So in 1938, it changed its name to Northridge California. Today, residents there don’t really consider themselves part of L.A. but more of part of “The Valley.” Bankruptcy cases filed in Northridge CA don’t go to downtown, but instead stay in the Valley.

Northridge CA Growth

There are a few bankruptcy attorneys locallly, some do Chapter 7 cases, and even fewer will file Chapter 13 cases. Northridge CA 91324 & 91325 has median home values of about $525,000. Not all bankruptcy lawyers are familiar with the means test. The distribution of renters to homeowners is almost exactly 50-50. The community was originally named Zelzah. Longtime residents will remember, before the 118, when Rinaldi took a steep dip down and again back up near Zelzah. This has since been leveled off. With this growth, people now drive much faster on Rinaldi.

Further, Rinaldi used to be really a good workaround to avoid Devonshire Blvd. Devonshire can get quite congested, for anyone trying to go east-west across the Valley. The 118 (no one calls it CA Highway 118) was completed in 1979. Prior to that, anyone traveling east had to exit at De Soto where the 118 went straight into a hill.

Cal State Northridge

California State University at Northridge CA is known for its landmark sign on Nordhoff Street that shows the school’s abbreviation from two different directions and is a design marvel. Many CSUN students can’t work and study, and upon graduation may need a bankruptcy lawyer.

State College to Uni to D-1

There’s also a major university in Northridge CA. It wasn’t always major, it once started off as San Fernando Valley State College. Now it’s all grown up. Sometimes called “Cal State Northridge”, the locals just call it CSUN or “see-sun.” Before the Matadors moved up to Division I in 1990, the university won 34 Division II national titles, third most of all time. Many of the students in attendance will have too much credit card debt and need a San Fernando Valley bankruptcy lawyer.

CSUN is one of only 45 schools in the country that have a beach volleyball program. More importantly, CSUN has achieved consistent rankings in the top 200 out of 2,000 colleges nationwide, and its engineering program is 5th out of all California colleges. In fact, one Matador went on to graduate school and then became a bankruptcy attorney and then wrote this website to help people.

Disaster strikes

In 1994, the Northridge earthquake rattled windows and nerves at 4:31 am. This caused massive damage not only in Northridge CA, but all across the valley and surrounding areas. It was months before some freeways were repaired and retrofitted. Houses were “red-tagged.” Walls were tumbled and pools cracked. Many people filed Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

In your life, if disaster strikes, don’t blame yourself. Sometimes life happens, just like earthquakes happen.¬†San Fernando Valley bankruptcy attorney Hale Antico has filed many cases for folks living in Northridge CA.
