    Sergio Siderman nos salvo nuestra familia

    Fuimos a ver a Sergio Siderman el ano pasado cuando ICE nos detuvo por manejar sin licencia. A mi me pusieron en detencion y a mi esposa la dejaron ir pero con site en la corte.

    Sergio me pudo sacar de detencion en menos de una semana, y me cerro el caso con ICE. Tambien me consiguio un permiso de trabajp para mi y mi esposa.

    No le puedo agradecer suficientamente a Sergio Siderman por su ayuda!

    Relief at last

    My husband and I were very pleased with Mr. Siderman and his staff. They explained what to expect through the whole process and it helped get rid of a lot of my anxiety about our debts and being in the courtroom. We finally are free to move on with our lives!

    Incompetent and untrustworthy

    I spent 4 1/2 years working on a loan modification with this attorney. He pushed me through bankruptcy and ruined my credit and financial records. Overall, the bank has refused his attempts to modify and now so much time has passed that we're so far underwater he can't do anything. He pushed me to another attorney to clean up his mess.

    Saved Our Retirement

    My wife and I saved all of our lives and had invested in properties all over the country. When the recession hit, we found ourselves with defaulting tenants and mortgages we couldn't afford. Thank God we found Sergio Siderman. He helped us protect our retirement in a chapter 7 bankruptcy while eliminating all of our bad debt. We never thought we would be able to overcome the enormous amount of real estate debt. Sergio saved our financial lives.

    Great Help During Divorce and Bankruptcy

    I hired Mr Siderman 2 years ago for bankruptcy while I was going through a difficult divorce. My ex-wife was using every dirty trick in the book to sabotage my life and my bankruptcy case. Mr Siderman worked closely with my family lawyer to make sure that the bankruptcy didn't negatively affect my family law case.

    In the end, Mr Siderman was able to get the family court to REQUIRE my ex-wife to sign our house over to me. My bankruptcy also eliminated over $1M in debt I had accumulated during my marriage. I am so grateful to Mr Siderman and his office.

    Saved My Home

    I was at risk of losing my home when I first met Mr. Siderman 3 years ago. He walked me through the Chapter 13 process and saved my house.

    His staff was particularly helpful in answering my questions, especially because I would get so scared every time I received notices in the mail from the courts and couldn't understand them.

    When I recently fell behind on my mortgage payments after nearly 3 years in my chapter 13 plan, Mr. Siderman helped me resolve the mater with my lender at no additional charge!

    Completely Incompetent

    I hired Sergio 3 years ago to represent my wife and I in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. He assured us both he was he most skilled attorney in Los Angeles and that he had personally trained all of the employees that work for the Trustee's Office. In his words "No Worries, we know everyone and they will approve our list of your monthly expenses. You will be paying your debtors back less than $200 p/month, your lifestyle will not change at all".
    Well that all changed with my first appearance in front of the Trustee. He sent some incompetent trainee to represent me. This person came into a room with my name written on a paper plate, talk about low class and demeaning. So I'm talking with this gentleman (attorney) asking questions about my case and cannot get an answer, he knows absolutely nothing about me, my situation or anything. He says he is just there to take the paperwork back to Sergio's office.Turns out the paperwork this guy has is incorrect, I was charged too much money, etc, etc, etc. This whole bankruptcy thing is not turning out too good so far. After leaving multiple messages for Sergio and calling dozens of times I finally get a return call from his office manager Jonathan. He assures me this will never happen again and that Sergio would personally handle my case. Not sure what was worse, when Sergio now goes back to court he gets my monthly payment set at $1,475 per month, not the $200 he assured me would happen. So I pay him more money to go back and fight this, guess what, it gets worse, now they are charging me $1,725 per month. He tells me he can do nothing more for me and that no other attorney could have done better. I cannot spend any more time on your case!
    So I start making some calls to other attorneys in the area, it turns out Mr Siderman has quite a reputation in the local BK courts and with the Trustee's Office. When I called the Trustee directly (something he told me not to do) they said my attorney was being disciplined and to go find another one. I couldn't believe it, he made them out to be the problem, and they actually helped me. I now have a competent attorney who lowered my payment to $700 per month, which is exactly what they said they would do.
    Two words of wisdom regarding Sergio Siderman STAY AWAY !!!!

    I was a chapter 13 Client 2 yrs. ago

    Never ever pay him upfront. Last year I paid him up front for services his office never rendered. I ended up paying him almost 9,000 dollars because of his incompetent staff. I filed a complaint with BBB and he never responded.

    Sergio Jose Siderman’s response: “This Client retained our office for assistance and representation in filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy petition. This case was filed and confirmed successfully. The client, at a later date during the life of the confirmed plan, wished to suspend and/or modify the terms of the confirmed plan. They were quoted a discounted price of $850 for the motion and hearings. The client requested to split attorney costs into two separate payments and the first payment of $400 was completed, but the balance was never paid. In addition to the outstanding balance, supporting evidence was not provided. Without the supporting evidence, the Motion could not be filed. Motion work, however, was prepared for client. Our office was left waiting for payment completion and supporting evidence to be compiled and provided for filing of motion.”

    Five Stars!!!

    Great results. Sergio and his office were extremely helpful in finalizing my bankruptcy. Although my financial circumstances were very bad at the time, they helped me through and I am relieved to say that chapter in my life is closed!
