About Me

I am Arthur Lebedin of Lebedin Kofman LLP, and I am a New York & New Jersey debt relief attorney. Credit cards, student loans, and other consumer debt is a very common element in average life today. Sadly, when these debts get out of hand, or when income is reduced due to various circumstances, minor inconveniences can become overwhelming disasters very quickly. I have assisted many clients in various debt issues, and I have helped clients through the process of bankruptcy. I have seen the effects of tremendous debt loads, and I know how to help my clients. When you choose our firm, you will receive representation that is based on personal attention that each client deserves.

    Arthur possesses all the positive qualities of a great attorney as he is professional, responsive, proactive, knowledgeable in his area of expertise, and treats his peers with utmost respect. Arthur is well versed in the area of consumer debt litigation and is my go-to attorney when I am confronted with questions relating to that area of law. From firsthand experience in referring individuals to Arthur, I would highly recommend him to anyone including attorneys that have clients that are dealing with consumer debt related issues as he aggressively pursues favorable settlements in such matters.
