I am currently in Chapter 13 through another lawyer, that declared bankruptcy and shut their doors about a year ago. Feeling that the company took my money and ran, and that I was left without representation, I found and contacted Michelle online, and she was great! Very helpful and actually took the time to make sure I had accurate information to the questions I had. I wished I had found her 3 years ago when I started this process. Thank you for the direction!

I simply do not know how I would have gotten through my bankruptcy without Michelle. She both empathetic and professional. She provided options, explained the laws clearly, prepared me for the creditor's meeting, and constantly reminded me that having to take this path was not the ultimate and only measure of who I am as a human being. I never had a feeling that I was one of many clients, her responses were always timely, and she kept me on track to ensure I provided all information that was necessary, without going overboard.
I strongly recommend her for anyone facing a similar challenge and decision.

Michelle Kaplan without a doubt get a first rate, five star, full marks from review from me. She made my legal process a smooth, efficient, even delightful experience. She somehow transformed a previously obstacle ridden task into a clear, precise, easy to manage, and expedient one. Michelle is a both highly professional, and genuinely caring. I would recommend her work most enthusiastically.

Throughout my process of filing bankruptcy, Michelle was always supportive and helped me understand each step in order to complete the process in a timely manner. I counted on her throughout the several months it took me to finally file and receive a discharge. I had other important things going on in my personal life at the same time, but Michelle kept me on track. I cannot recommend Michelle Kaplan enough with respect to handling everything related to completing complex paperwork and being by your side on your day in court.

In January 2015, I was mortified to realize that after paying all my monthly bills, I only had a few dollars left over. A friend of mine suggested strongly that I needed to declare bankruptcy. That friend looked up Michelle in Google for me and, after I worked up the courage, I called her and I've been ever so thankful that I did.
When I explained my situation and how worried I was about losing my house, she put me at ease then and throughout the whole bankruptcy process. Michelle responded quickly to all my E-mails and telephone calls. In every interaction with her she provided kind, non-judgmental, professional help.
I strongly recommend her to anyone who needs bankruptcy legal advice and help.

The most important thing a bankruptcy lawyer can have is thorough knowledge of the process.
I spoke to 2 lawyers before Michelle and by the time i saw her i was in a really bad place. The other lawyers all had bad news and they made it seem like i would loose everything. Enter Michelle. Michelle was very warm, friendly and knowledgeable. She immediately put me at ease especially because she just wanted to talk to me about my case and get to know me in detail. The first two lawyers i talked to made me fill out all this paperwork listing debts, assets, etc before we could even have the "free" consultation. I went through the process with ease because Michelle told me all to expect. True to her word the process worked exactly like she said it would. Was able to get the discharge and my health back. Best lawyer in the business

Michelle helped us relax and find out all our options in a very stressful time. We were dealing with a very aggressive unresponsive loan servicer and finally needed to find a lawyer to clarify how to approach our difficulty. Michelle was always quick to answer our many questions in a way we could clearly under stand.
She was professional and friendly and helped us to come to a successful conclusion in our case.

Michelle was literally a gift from above... I had been in a toxic relationship for 7 years. I was afraid to leave for more then one reason, but the biggest was I had a ton of credit card debt in my name and my boyfriend at the time was the one who made the money in the relationship while I stayed home and took care of our two young girls... I had finally reached a point where I knew I had to do something. I had seen Michelle's ad on AVVO and made the decision to contact her through her website. I was contacted by Michelle personally via email that same day.. I met with Michelle the following week. Michelle was so personable; friendly, and knowledgeable. I just knew, you know that gut feeling you get where you go; "This is right." I knew I didn't need to go see anyone else, I knew that with Michelle's help I was going to be okay... So I took the jump and I trusted her to be my lifesaver, and she was. Michelle was always quick to answer any questions or concerns. She made sure everything was done correctly so that there would be no hiccups or anything for the courts to question.
I had tried to repair my broken relationship. When I finally decided that it was non-repairable, I no longer had the debt holding me hostage... I am now debt free, and it's the best feeling. I only have a small income right now since I just began working part time a few months ago, and it's so nice to know that I am able to actually save money! I have more money saved then I ever have my whole life. It's great to feel like a FREE, responsible adult and mother.
Thank you Michelle, you literally are one of the key players of people who helped save my life, in helping me find happiness.
I recommend her to ANYONE! (And now I'm crying :) )

Michelle is thorough, sharp, organized, and professional. We interviewed three attorneys before hiring Michelle, and we are so glad we hired her. Michelle demonstrated not only an incredible amount of knowledge, but also practical experience. We are very pleased with the outcome of our case and thankful to Michelle for her expertise.
