Review Lesley Hoenig

About Me

I am an attorney licensed to practice in Illinois (11/2002), Minnesota (10/2003) and Michigan (6/2008) I recently moved to Mt. Pleasant, Michigan and will take a variety of types of cases. I practice primarily in Bankruptcy, but also take related consumer law cases, foreclosures, collections, landlord/tenant, Business organizations, leases, and other related areas as well as family law.
I will not accept credit cards for bankruptcies.


In addition to being admitted to three states, I am admitted to four federal district courts including: the Northern District of Illinois, Central District of Illinois, Eastern District of Michigan and the Western District of Michigan.  Presently, I am focusing on working within the Eastern and Western Districts of Michigan, but still take Northern District of Illinois bankruptcy cases.


I moved to beautfiul Mount Pleasant Michigan in Augst 2007, and plan to stay here for a long time.  I look forward to providing quality services to the residents of Mount Pleasant for years to come and have a passion for helping people deal with consumer problems that arise.
