Having to file bankruptcy is one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make. I met with Michelle not knowing what to expect. Michelle was the most professional and yet caring attorney I have ever met. She is so knowledgeable and gave me all the facts before I made a decision. Once the decision was made to file bankruptcy, she kept me informed and explained everything that would happen. She took the fear out of the process. She was always available by phone or email when I had questions or felt overwhelmed. I cannot say enough good things about Michelle. If you are in a financial crisis, I would recommend talking to a professional and Michelle Kaplan is by far the best attorney. I feel so lucky to have had Michelle in my corner representing me during this most difficult time in my life. Thank you Michelle!!

Michelle was very knowledgeable and explain the process in a way that was understandable to a lay person and made it as smooth as possible. We appreciated her telling us exactly what would happen in court so we weren't as nervous. Michelle and her assistant were very responsive in getting back to us with answers to our questions or issues with debtors. She was very sensitive to us in a difficult time.

I have had more than the average persons fair share of legal council and most were good, but none compared to the service I got from Michelle and her team, they were simply amazing. At any point in the 3 1/2 months my wife & I worked w/ Michelle on our Bankruptcy, it never felt like I was ever going thru one because they handled everything and just notified me weekly on where we were.. My normal life never had to change or have more stress piled on, simply because of the excellent work they did. There confidence and know-how kept my family & me from having to worry or stress about anything. I could not be any more pleased w/ how everything turned out and how my life is now. I would work w/ them in a heartbeat. Thank you Michelle

Very helpful and knowledgeable in guiding you through the processes and keeps you informed as to what is happening - your role/her role etc. Have recommended her to others.

Michelle was excellent in all aspects of her handling of my case. Her approach to walking me through the process was both professional and generously kind. She addressed me as a person, not just a case number, and showed empathy and respect in all that goes along with the emotional side of a bankruptcy.

Michelle Kaplan was amazing, awesome and a true professional. She knows the laws in depth and in detail; and was continuously pro-active in handling our case to a satisfactory conclusion for all involved. From start to finish, even though the case was a little more challenging than usual, she patiently listened to us and answered all and every one of our questions at every point along the way and was always available and always followed through. She made us feel that our case was always her only priority. Highly recommend.

Ms. Kaplan was recommended to me by another attorney and I'm so glad I contacted her. She was my last hope from the threat of a law suit for burdensome medical bills and wage garnishment. I was afraid since I have a small child that depended on me. I was devastated and scared. My first meeting with her was so relieving. She was very confident, supportive, her knowledge base was incredible. She was very thorough in explaining what will happen, how it will happen, what needs to be done and what is expected of me. The entire experience from start to finish was very educational. I really appreciated Ms. Kaplan's prompt responses to my inquiries and it made me feel as if I was the only client in that moment and she gave me full and undivided attention. It was one of the most positive experiences I have ever had with an attorney and she was easily accessible unlike other attorneys who think so highly of themselves that you never even see him and work through their assistants. For the quality service delivered her fees were reasonable and it was worth hiring her. I have not one negative thing to say about Ms. Kaplan or her office and would highly recommend Ms. Kaplan to my family, friends and strangers who are looking for help and considering bankruptcy.

Michelle was compassionate and understanding throughout the entire process. Clearly outlined our options, the process and talked us through every step. Going into this, we had some preconceived notions that Michelle was able to clarify, and she patiently answered repetitive questions. We're very thankful we chose Michelle and would quickly refer her to anyone who needed help.

Michelle was very kind and caring while also knowledgeable during the whole Bankruptcy process.
She made it as painless as possible.
