About Me

You do not have to tolerate harassing phone calls and threatening letters!

matter how difficult the situation, Ben Schneider is equipped to aid
debtors in filing for Bankruptcy. Many have the impression that
Bankruptcy is a process that should be avoided at all costs. Few
realize that when needed, Bankruptcy is the best way to get a fresh
start. Bankruptcy provides individual debtors with the tools they need
to draw a line between the past and their future and

opening the Bankruptcy division of Weingarten & Adler, Ben
Schneider has been representing debtors in Bankruptcy. Ben has helped
individuals and business clients protect themselves by filing under
Chapters 7, 11, and 13.

  • Erica Crohn Minchella

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I practiced in bankruptcy law for eighteen years before moving to another area of law, so I'd like to think that I know a good bankruptcy lawyer when I see one - I do in Ben. The best compliment I can pay Ben, is that he treats his bankruptcy clients like I did - with respect, creativity, tenacity and intelligence. I have no hesitation referring clients to Ben, because I know they will get excellent representation.
