As a single parent and successful professional, I never dreamed that my finances would be severely hit by the perfect storm - corporate restructuring, economic downturn and a crashed housing market. Despite all our best intentions, sometimes we end up in an unsustainable position and need expert help and a workable solution. I was referred to Joel and I never looked back. His knowledge of the law, his careful consideration of my circumstances, and his expertise in the process allowed me to come to a business decision to file for bankruptcy. The time between initial filing and formal meetings gave me sufficient time to adjust to my new circumstances and to build a stronger base for my future. Six months later, I received my fresh start from the court, and now eight months later, I am in the best financial position ever, with hope for a stable future in this aspect of my life. Joel is the best!!

I was first introduced to Mr. Spivack several years ago when clients of mine filed for personal bankruptcy. Since then I have also experienced first-hand his work ethic, knowledge, timely response & attention to detail with regards to residential real estate transactions. I highly recommend Mr. Spivack & look forward to working with him again!

Like others I too met Joel at a very challenging and dark time in my life. After much research I chose Joel Spivack and it was the best decision I could have made. Joel was patient, kind, responsive and informative. All my concerns were addressed, my litany of questions answered. I never felt rushed or brushed off and he gave me the confidence everything would work out. I cannot say enough good things about Joel Spivack. It has been said that in life people are either "warnings or examples". Not only is Joel Spivack an example but It is legal counsel like Joel Spivack that gives the title ESQ the justice it deserves.

Mr. Spivack handled our bankruptcy with true expertism, and made the
entire process easy to understand. During the free consultation, he
made the time to answer all our questions making it feel less stressful
to proceed with our bankruptcy. Everything was handled in a timely
and knowledgeable manner until its completion.

Joel was thorough in every aspect of preparation, presentation and representation of our very complex bankruptcy case. Joel and his staff were extremely responsive to our questions and concerns and made us feel that we were their most important client.
Joel gave us every option to consider and his objectiveness was a check and balance to our emotional perspective of our situation.
In court Joel had a tremendous rapore with the judges and court administrators which gave us great confidence in expecting a favorable outcome, which he delivered.
Joel was the right choice in handling our complex and potentially disasterous situation and we would recommend him to anyone.

Joel handled my case with the utmost professionalism and determination to protect my interests. There were some complications in my bankruptcy case that worried me, but Joel always reassured me that he had things under control and showed me how true this was through his actions. He also clearly communicated the process from beginning to end and answered any questions that came up quickly and thoroughly. Joel knows the law inside and out. He argued diligently for my rights and got me the chapter 7 discharge we were hoping for. I could not have a better opinion of Joel's abilities, professionalism and dedication to his clients. He was recommended to me by a friend who had also used him, and I would recommend Joel to anyone I know with similar financial problems.
