About Me

Using processes set forth in the bankruptcy code, Mr. Kim can help stop
wage garnishments, home foreclosures, or the endless calls from rude and
annoying bill collectors.  He can also explain how you can discharge
mounting medical and credit card bills, modify your existing car loans,
or take care of your back taxes.  Life is challenging enough without the
burden of excessive debt and unreasonable financing terms.  It’s time
to get the information you need to get your financial life back on
track. The Salinas bankruptcy law office of Stephen Kim can help walk you through Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, and help you get a new start.

  • Taedra Elizabeth Kogan

    I endorse this lawyer. I referred a client who lives up in Monterey to Steve's bankruptcy practice and was very happy with how well Steve took care of this client. I was at first impressed by Steve's top notch education (UCLA and USC Law), but his work ethic, ability to relate to the client, and his follow through were what truly won me over.
