I WAS AT MY WITS END AND I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE SOMEONE RECCOMEND MR GOLDENBERG TO ME.
HE WAS NOT ONLY PROFESSIONAL HE WAS CARING ,INFORMATIVE,RESPECTFUL, COMPASSIONATE AND JUST WENT OUT OF HIS WAY IN MY OPINION TO MAKE A VERY UNPLEASANT SITUATION MUCH LESS NERVE RACKING AND NOT SO FRIGHTENING.
WHAT HE TOLD ME UPON MY RETAINING HIM WAS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED HE ALWAYS RETURNED MY CALLS IN A VERY TIMELY MANNER AND HIS STAFF WAS JUST AS PROFESSIONAL AS HE WAS .
I CANNOT THANK HIM ENOUGH FOR HIS HELP TRULY A GEM BOTH HE AND HIS STAFF.

Attn. Goldenberg and his offices were able to resolve my matter quickly and efficiently. This attorney and his associates kept me up-to-date when needed and deferring to their advice was clearly the best choice.
I would gladly recommend Attn. Goldenberg and his offices to anyone or retain his services again for any future issues I may or may not have.

I called Simon regarding a complex student loan issue. He clearly explained which parts he could assist with and what the expected out come would be. He also guided me in how to manage the parts of the situation that he couldn't directly resolve

When I couldn't make my student loan payments anymore following a work injury I didn't know what to do. I was lost and confused then one day I came across Simon's website completely by chance. I know now that it was meant to be. Simon and his staff helped me so much and they were always there if I needed advice or had any questions. I will be eternally grateful for him and his firm for taking on my case becauseof that I am now debt free, which for anyone who has had student loans it's a miracle to even say.

I hired Simon Goldenberg to help me with straightening out a financial mess which stemmed from my student loans. With the help of Mr. Stephen Basedow, I am on the road to financial freedom as he not only eliminated some of my debt, he also made it so that my monthly payments were affordable. Mr. Basedow was extremely professional and very personable. He also kept me in the loop every step of the way. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this law firm as they have eliminated an astronomical amount of financial burden and stress from my life. I am so appreciative for all that they have done for me and there are not enough kind words for me to express all of my gratitude.

We were on our way out of the house one day when my husband received a summons. It was for a bill that was unpaid by our medical insurance, for a surgery he'd had years and years ago... In other words, we had paid our bills back then, but because the insurance company didn't pay the provider (the surgeon) back at that time, the provider was suing the patients --years later! -- And even though we no longer lived in the state!
It had been one of those situations where my husband was going into the emergency room and signing paperwork as he was being prepped for surgery... Well, it turned out one of those forms was one that said, in the event that the insurance doesn't pay the bill, we would be responsible. -- If you're in an emergency and about to receive surgery, are you going to slow down and negotiate the terms of a form? --And really, who thinks that the insurance company isn't going to pay what they're supposed to?...
We earn a very modest living, always pay our bills on time and keep our debt down way low, so when this summons announced that we might owe to the tune of $30k, we were floored and deeply frustrated. We'd never been in need of a lawyer before and felt completely vulnerable.... until we spoke to Stephen Basedow. I had been cold-calling attorneys in the NY area about our situation. I was trying to understand how this happened and what our rights were. I had spoken to about 4 other attorneys, but when Stephen started reviewing our information, I knew our search was over. He inspired confidence and, even though we only ever spoke over the phone, I trusted him implicitly.
I honestly hardly ever write reviews, but I wanted to write this one. My husband and I are so grateful that we found Stephen to guide us through this situation. He was straightforward and honest, even when things were uncertain. He drafted and submitted response documents and kept us up to date as things developed. Our case went on hold for various reasons, but whenever I called Stephen (out of the blue) he knew who I was, knew our case and knew what the latest was. He kindly answered all our questions, was never rushed or inpatient. He inspired confidence and his confidence was truly comforting in what was a very unsettling a situation.
Our outcome was a lucky one... we didn't end up having to go to court, and as soon as we were released from the suit, Simon Goldberg sent an email confirming our case was complete. So while its true we never hit litigation, we knew we were in the right hands regardless.
We highly recommend Stephen Basedow, and would refer anyone to him in a heartbeat. Admittedly, we hope we never need to, but if a situation like that ever came up again, his would be the first number we called.
Thank you so much Stephen!

After years of using online credit repair companies and seeing no results, I contacted Simon to see if he could help. From the outset, Simon was incredibly helpful. He took the time to fully understand my case, and provided a thoughtful and thorough plan for how to address it.
Prior to our conversation, I was instinctively cautious about paying upfront for a year's worth of credit repair services -- largely because I had seen such poor results from other companies. Looking back however, Simon's work has had a more meaningfully positive impact on my credit than anything else I've done over the past 5 years.
And unlike the individuals at many other companies that claim to offer similar services (of which I have used many) -- Simon is knowledgable, personable, professional, and reachable (he's never more than a phone call or email away).
Over the year working with Simon, he helped get rid of EVERY item on my report that I alerted him to. This resulted in a 150 point increase in my FICO score. I am now receiving offers in the mail from credit providers for the first time in years. In short, I couldn't be more pleased with the work that he did.
If you're looking for the right person to call, look no further than Simon. He is a first-class lawyer and a trustworthy professional -- I would happily recommend him to anyone.

I worked with Mr Goldenberg for a debt collection case. I was sued for an amount of 12 Grand back in 2010. I payed on this debt through wage garnishments until last August when for no reason they stopped garnishing my wages. The Debt collection agency sold my debt to another agency and the other agency started to garnish my wages for the full amount again. Mr Goldenberg got the case dismissed for me and kept me informed throughout the whole process.

Mr goldberg was successful at helping reduce my debt. Someone from his office was always available to talk & explain things. I highly recommend him for a positive experience!

I'm always skeptical of high rated reviews. But after doing a little research and reading all the reviews I was sold on at least a phone call. I am so glad I did because Stephen Basedow is an awesome lawyer. He made the process easy and comfortable. From the beginning he was very upfront but not in a brash way. He was friendly and attentive. The biggest difference beyond his friendly demeanor is his work ethic. I saw a lot of other lawyers during my hearing and by far Stephen was the best prepared. He prepared me thoroughly so there wouldn't be any surprises. Other lawyers I saw didn't seem as thorough in preparing their clients. It showed in how they made excuses about missing paper work and just bad responses to the trustee. But not Stephen. He knows what he's doing, and he's good at it, and on top of he's just a really friendly guy. I wouldn't recommend any other lawyer. It's not even worth the hassle of looking. Call him if you need a bankruptcy lawyer. You will not be disappointed from start to finish.
