    • I recommend Michael Malter.
    • I hired Michael 6-12 months ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.

    Very responsive and knowledgeable firm. They handled a complex bankruptcy case for me and the company I worked at for the last six months (If I was a more responsive client, it would have taken less than half that time).

    Their entire team is very knowledgeable and capable of answering any questions you may have. Nan Corber and Michael Malter handled my consultation and gathering the necessary information for the case. Kristina Parson went with me to court to answer any questions the trustee had. They all kept me informed of anything and everything I would need to know before starting the case (during a free consultation) and as the case proceeded. I received updates through email, phone, and by mail of anything that was received or sent out regarding the case.

    The fee was clearly laid out during the free consultation, and I did not receive any additional fees whatsoever. They are a very trustworthy firm and more than capable of handling any bankruptcy case. As another reviewer stated, if your case is relatively simply, you may be better off doing it by yourself. However, if you are worried about your case or it's rather complicated, I highly recommend giving Binder & Malter a call. They executed everything they said they would while keeping me up to date and alleviating any concerns I had. I have dealt with around 5-6 attorneys in the past, and they are without a doubt the most professional and considerate.

    On a final note, their office is the nicest I've ever been to. I don't know when they found the time to become architecture and interior design experts, but their office is beautiful. It's tastefully done and every aspect is considered carefully. They clearly didn't go out and buy the most expensive, imposing items they could find as some attorney offices do. The space is very welcoming and designed well. If you want the same consideration applied to your bankruptcy case, I recommend visiting Binder & Malter.

    • I recommend Michael Malter.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Debt matter.

    We met with Michael Malter this morning. We had a lapse of auto insurance for 9 days total...in that time Murphy's Law reared it's ugly head and my husband was in a collision...he rear ended someone and now they're claiming bodily injury. Two days later, it happened again. He's not a bad driver, it was just a really bad week. We've been so depressed thinking we were going to lose everything we've worked so hard for, our home, pension....everything. Michael was so supportive, warm and understanding. We were worried about our assets...really not much but it is all we have. Michael assured us that we would NOT lose our home, NOT lose our pensions.... I felt like crying with relief. Michael is honest, we don't need to hire him at this moment, but he's there for us when (and if) we need him. He took away our fears.... and we can function again. His said something that hit home with me as we were leaving.... because I say it too.... "this too shall pass"

    Thank you Michael!!!

    • I recommend Michael Malter.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Debt matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Going through Bankruptcy is an embarrassing, stressful and scary experience. I was lucky enough to have Michael Malter to help me through this tough time. He was caring, kind and compassionate and never made me feel badly for ending up in this position.
    I would recommend him to anyone looking for help in this area and all of the people I have sent to him have also had similarly positive experiences.

    • I recommend Michael Malter.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 11 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I normally don't give full rating for anyone, but I feel that this office has helped me so tremendously that it warranted such. I have been involved in a bancruptcy case (I am the creditor) that Malter & Binder have been handling for me. Not only did they get me an excellent settlement
    but have been awesome and more than reputable in every aspect. I am truly grateful for all their expertise and advise and continuing monitering of my case, which is still ongoing.
    I was referred to Binder & Malter from another attorney and honestly would have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars if not for Michael Malter and his team. If you are looking for an expert in the field of litigation/finance, look no more. I cannot say enough about the professionalism, and overall knowledge that Mr. Malter holds.

    Respecfully, CH
