About Me

I have spent my entire professional career (27 years) practicing bankruptcy law.  Almost all of my clients are referred to me by former clients, attorneys, accountants and financial planners.  In 1994, I was the first Fresno bankruptcy attorney certified as a specialist in bankruptcy law by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.  I take on bankruptcy cases that are complex and outside of the scope or expertise of the normal high-volume consumer bankruptcy attorneys.  My firm has a regional presence in California's San Joaquin Valley with offices in Bakersfield and Fresno.  Our bankruptcy department consists of four partners and three associates all dedicated to the practice of bankruptcy law.

  • Gerald Marcel Tomassian

    Hagop and I have had mutual clients for over twenty-five years. He is one of the most knowledgeable bankruptcy attorneys in our community. He works directly with creditor and debtor clients to find solutions to their issues. He understands businesses and what they need to extricate themselves from financial difficulties and helps them get there. His solutions are always the most practical for the client and avoids needless and expensive conflict where possible. Without exception, Hagop has effectively represented our clients in complex and routine bankruptcy matters.
