I just wanted to weigh in and let everyone know that through circumstances I have filed for BR twice. Once Chapter 7, and the second time Chapter 13 in order to save my property during the recent real estate fiasco. Both times I used Peter Lively and his amazing staff. They are attentive, well informed, helpful, and never make you feel inadequate because you don't know the rules of BR. That is their job and they do it well. I would highly recommend his office (and in fact have, on several occasions) for anyone going through the difficult task and choice of filing for bankruptcy protection. He and his staff are, in my opinion, top-notch.

My experiences with Mr. Lively and his team has been nothing short of a miracle. I truly appreciate all the work he and his staff did for me to have the outcome that we did in the amount of time we did it. I cannot thank them enough.
Keep up the GREAT WORK that you do!
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!
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. They were particularly timely to respond when issues came up after everything was said and done and my case was closed. I appreciate the thoroughness of their work and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I found Mr. Lively and staff very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and kept me informed at all times
through out the whole bankruptcy procedure. I would highly recommend Mr. Lively to anyone
who would need an attorney for bankruptcy. They will find that his fees are very fair.
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.
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.
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.
