When I entered Allen's office for the first time, I was very nervous. I find attorneys to be abrupt....not judging all just my experience. Immediately after meeting Allen, I realized that he was different. So easy to talk to that I was able to discuss my situation openly. The end results was he did the very best he could for me and I was extremely happy with the results. Even though the process was tiresome, the experience was not. Kudos to Mr. Kolber and his team for really making the process easy for me.

Allen put me at ease the first time I met with him. He took the time to really listen to my situation and explain my options in a very knowledgeable and professional way. There was absolutely no pressure. I decided on Chapter 7 and found that the fees were very reasonable.
Throughout the process Allen along with Sylvia and Nadya, his paralegals, were great at guiding me through and letting me know what documents they needed. They were patient, kind and sure to answer any questions I had promptly whether I called or e-mailed. They made sure I knew exactly what to expect which made a potentially complicated process feel very smooth.
At my 341 creditors meeting I felt calm and ready with Allen at my side. Allen made sure I was prepared, and I was. I am now a month away from having my debt discharged, and I am relieved and happy to get a fresh financial start.
I would recommend Allen to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional and truly caring bankruptcy attorney. He knows his stuff and provides great personalized service.

Very knowledgeable and open.
A very good listener (even though often I had repeatedly asked the same questions!).
Was able to allay my fears and put me at ease. Always had an answer to most any query.
A very good coach in preparing me as to what to expect and when to expect it.
Very, very thorough with the collection and amassing of
all the necessary paperwork and documents.
For such a busy lawyer as he, he always took time to take a phone call
or return the call if he was with another client.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM and HIS VERY HELPFUL and ATTENTIVE STAFF!....BRAVO!!!

Allen Kolber has been Paws Unlimited Foundation’s legal representative since 2006. When the organization was in the market for a lawyer specializing in not-for-profits, we asked around the community and Allen was highly recommended. The organization was extremely fortunate in that we selected the right lawyer the first time. Allen is a hard worker and most importantly an honest person. When the organization was faced with a tax certiorari case, Allen sought assistance from the legal community as this type of case was not his specialty. Allen displayed professionalism and honesty by recommending we seek a firm familiar with tax matters. He provided the organization with guidance and support in selecting the right firm to represent us. As the case progressed to the NY State Supreme Court, Allen remained supportive and provided guidance when needed. You will not find a more honorable man who is a pillar in his community, a good family man and someone I am happy to call a friend.

I had close to $100,000 in credit card debt that made my life a nightmare. Allen Kolber was able to get rid of that debt through Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I now have a fresh start. Allen also negotiated a loan modification on my first and second mortgages. He has an excellent staff that assists him, specifically Nadia and Sylvia.
If you need a bankruptcy lawyer, Allen Kolber is the best.

I have dealt with Allan on several issues, I had excellent experience with him in every aspect.
Aside from his professionalism and promptness, I have never met a lawyer with that level of honesty.
I had a case where I had already paid Allan in advance for services, later on I got a settlement offer from the other party, Allen advised me to accept that offer, and he returned to me the entire amount that I have paid.

Allen Kolber is a highly professional, trustworthy and knowledgable attorney. He's great at what he does!! He helped us file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy which was discharged in a very timely manner with no questions asked..... We recently got approved for a Loan Modification with excellent terms. Rockland County is extremely lucky to have Allen Kolber and his most professional staff serve our community. We wish him much success in all his endeavors!!!

My wife and I were facing the loss of everything we had worked our lives for, and Mr. Kolber, basically, rescued our life. Bankruptcy is a painful thing to be facing. He was compassionate and caring and understood our fears and hurt. He is amazing. His paperwork is flawless. We went to court and saw many other people with their lawyers being told to come back again because their paperwork was either incomplete or done incorrectly. We were there for maybe 5 minutes, paperwork flawless, and out. Out with the pressure and sorrow over. We are retirees and this process was painful, Mr. Kolber made it bearable. We have recommended him to several people and he has been wonderful to them
