    • I recommend Peter Lively.
    • I hired Peter more than 3 years ago.
    • Peter handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Mr. Lively and his associates are incredibly professional and did an excellent job handling my Chapter 13 case. My case lasted six years, and Mr. Lively and his team were with me every step of the way, explaining the process and resolving any issues that came up with my case. All of my questions were answered promptly and courteously. I now have a fresh financial start and could not have done it without them. I highly recommend Peter M. Lively!

    • I recommend Peter Lively.
    • I hired Peter 1-3 years ago.
    • Peter handled my Bankruptcy / Debt matter.

    We recently completed a very complicated bankruptcy case with Peter and it was because of his expertise that everything went as smoothly as it did. We went through 2 attorney's previously that were not as knowledgeable and finally were referred to Peter.

    Peter was very personable and thorough with our situation. We had a small business attached to us personally and also needed to consider whether to keep our house, which was at loss. Peter was very knowledgeable with all the different directions our case took and was able to explain things to us in a simple and easy to understand manner.

    Peter and his team always kept us up-to-date with the case and made sure we knew what to expect ahead. He was always honest and direct with us and we very much appreciated that. I have HIGHLY recommended him to others who have been in similar situations and they have been very happy with him as well.

    Peter Lively and his team were excellent to work with. They kept me informed about the process of my case and were quick to reply to my queries.

    Peter has also handled multiple cases for some of my close colleagues over the past 5 years, so I can definitely speak to his abilities on their behalf as well. Unlike other attorneys who I've worked with, Peter is extremely genuine and trustworthy, and has a heart of gold. He is extremely knowledgeable in his area of expertise, goes over and beyond to ensure that his clients are comfortable and equipped to make the right decisions based on his strategic advise and recommendations. Not only is he extremely intelligent and client service oriented, but he's the most personable and charming person I've ever worked with from a client:professional perspective. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone. You get the best of both worlds working with him - the big firm background and expertise (not sure if you guys know but he got his JD/MBA from one of the best programs in the nation and previously worked at a large firm), and the 1:1 attention and care from a small firm.

    • I recommend Peter Lively.

    Peter Lively has been a colleague of mine for more than 20 years since we graduated from UCLA Law School. He is an exceptional and tireless advocate for his consumer debtor clients, whether they be in a relatively straightfoward Chapter 7 case, or a complex Chapter 11 reorganization. In my litigation practice, I have frequently had occasion to refer my own clients to Mr. Lively for assistance. All have benefited from the his services. Not only is he a great attorney -- he is a creative and caring problem solver. I recommend Mr. Lively without reservation to anyone in financial distress.

    Peter Lively is a very knowledgeable, friendly and caring bankruptcy attorney. Peter and his staff are thorough and attentive to details. I was first referred to him and a few other attorneys in the Los Angeles area when I tried to find a good bankruptcy attorney for a dear friend who needed help with his bankruptcy problems. I selected Peter out of the list of attorneys I contacted because he is affordable, understanding and friendly. He helped saved my friend's home. Since then, I have referred all my clients to him for financial advises on bankruptcy matters. Their feedback are always positive about how he and his staff handles their cases. I am very happy I found him. He is simply the best. Diane C.

    • Peter handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 11 matter.

    I highly recommend Peter Lively. After engaging several different Lawyers to handle my BK 11 without any measurable results Peter Lively was recommended to me. From the first meeting I knew I had met a man of the utmost integrity who was extremely skilled. Mr. Lively immediately laid out the process in simple terms and he and his staff went to work. Even though I had repeatedly been warned that there was a very high rate of failure regarding BK 11 he helped me succeed. I saved my investment in my home and I am now paying my debt down with success. He is a very fair and honest attorney with great skills. Mr. Lively and his staff were always professional and responsive to my needs through the whole process.
