Review Matthew Lazarus

About Me

I am a Senior Associate at the Law firm of Sadek and Cooper, LLC. Previously I was the managing Attorney in a Philadelphia Bankruptcy law firm for five years.  I have personally helped hundreds of individuals and married couples complete successful bankruptcies in the greater Philadelphia area and its surrounding counties. My wife and I are Philadelphia residents and I am a second generation Pennsylvania Attorney.  I have worked both for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg, and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General Bureau of Consumer Protection.  Lastly, I am committed to giving the highest degree of legal service to all of my clients and personalized attention to addressing their specific situations.
