      I have known Nik for several years now. He is very knowledgeable in the field of bankruptcy. I have known several other lawyers who have sought out his advice on bankruptcy matters. In addition to being knowledgeable, he truly cares for his clients. Other bigger law firms have left their clients high and dry and Nik has picked up the pieces. If I have a client ask me for a referral to a bankruptcy attorney, I would not hesitate to recommend Nikhil Chawla.
