SPECIALIZING IN BANKRUPTCY FOR OVER 25 YEARS. **COVID-19 UPDATE: YES, WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS - CALL, MESSAGE OR EMAIL TODAY.** (978) 683-2479

At work and at home, I see my job as making sense out of chaos. To do so, one has to understand what is doable and fashion a solution that not only works on paper but in practice. Often, I find fiscal and family issues are intertwined. I find that I can help as  I understand many family issues as  I have a wife and four kids including red heads  plus a dog and a cat. Plus my parents live nearby and I have  a brother who seems every year or two  to get involved in new business venttures  that always somehow  have  many unexpected  complications.

 

 I have  helped resolves issues in my community. My house of worship has asked to me several times  to resolve apparently unresolvable issues such mediating a heated dispute about the layout of cemetary plots between two grieving families who retained counsel as well as amicably resolve  a dispute resulting fron a hotel accepting reservations for its hall on  Yom Kippur from both a jewish gay group as well as a traditional Orthodox Jewish  honesty, creativity  and empathy mixed with a dash of dry humor, I have found i can help  people and corporations  to meet and resolve  challenges in ones personal and business life.

Herb is an excellent bankruptcy attorney. Conscientious, attentive to detail, and ALWAYS available for question. I highly recommend him, you will not be disappointed. If it wasn't for Herb, I would be drowning in credit card debt. He made this difficult time in my life super easy. Told me exactly what I needed to bring and he will handle the rest. Thank you Herb ! I appreciate you !

Kind, Caring, Compassionate
Attorney Weinberg, has gone above and beyond, helping and guiding me, over the last, very difficult 2 year’s. I was skeptical when I first called him, he seemed almost “too nice”, he personally answered my call, and patiently listened to my nervous rambling. When I was done, he kindly calmed me down, immediately told me he could help, then explained the process of filling for bankruptcy. He’s always been there whenever I’ve needed anything, or have had any questions, he replies through either e-mail or text, usually within minutes, when he can, even after his regular business hours! He’s also been very accommodating whenever I’ve had to go into his office. I would highly recommend him to anyone facing the need to file bankruptcy, he’s never once let me down, even at the very, very last minute! He’s very kind, caring and has so much compassion for his clients and works hard to make sure everything is done and goes smoothly. Whenever I’ve had a situation where I’ve needed his immediate help, he’s always been available, even after his regular business hours, never once making me feel like I’m bothering him. The need to file Bankruptcy and the issues I’ve been dealing with that put me in this situation, have been very stressful and overall, a very difficult time. I can’t say enough, how thankful and lucky I am to have found him, I’m not sure what I would have done if didn’t.

Highly recommend!
A weight is off my shoulders thanks to Atty. Weinberg! I had spoken to one other lawyer before finding Atty. Weinberg in a Google search. I emailed the office and he contacted me right away. To me, the idea of filing Chapter 7 was scary, complicated and shameful. Through his professionalism and kindness he showed me it wasn’t.

3 words come to mind: Integrity, Trusting, Bulldog
I literally had three bankruptcy attorneys accept my retainer then refund the retainer because each did not want to deal with the complexity of my bankruptcy. And it was this misfortune that allowed me to meet Herb whom I would trust with my last dollar.  He maintains a high level of professionalism and integrity, always being certain he understood your individual situation to offer the best options.  He is a bulldog never giving up and constantly reviewing the plan of attack to ensure his client receives the best judgment.  Even after the bankruptcy was completed, Herb always makes himself available to help out.  Above all I consider him a friend.

Thorough and supportive
Attorney Weinberg showed real dedication, answering questions, being there outside of office hours in an emergency, thoroughly going thru a variety of options to find what is in my best interest. His patient and calm approach has been reassuring during an extremely stressful time. You know you're a human being and not a just another case number. I know I came to the right person.

Knowledgeable and well-connected
Herb skillfully and reassuringly guided me through bankruptcy while I was going through my divorce. He made a byzantine process clear and understandable. As I navigated the choice between filing Chapter 7 and 13, he was also able to provide insight into the preferences of the particular trustees assessing my case. He was both pragmatic and kind through a stressful set of circumstances.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
My husband and I had the difficult decision to file for bankruptcy a few years ago, and Herb was a lifesaver. His knowledge of the process and his guidance was invaluable. There is a lot of negative stigma around filing for bankruptcy, and his first word of advice and comfort was that it was our constitutional right to file. It was definitely the right move for us, and we are so grateful to Herb for his expert advice as well as his genuine kindness.

Professional and got the job done
Herb was the second lawyer we visited with and knew right away he was the right lawyer for us. We felt very comfortable and confident moving forward after our first meeting. My wife and I were very surprised at the low payment Herb negotiated on our behalf and would highly recommend his services to anyone in need!

Truly a lifesaver in my time of need!
Herbert was very helpful for me when my business shut down after the pandemic. I had way too much business debt than I could afford personally. I found Herbert online after reviewing all of his glowing reviews of him and his practice compared to his competition. After meeting with me, he graciously took my case for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. He was considerate of my specific situation, involving my business and family. He treated me like I was part of his family. He called on me to check on me often. He educated me on the process. He was my advocate against harassing creditors when I felt like I didn’t have one in my painful and embarrassing situation. Herbert helped me close the book on a very painful chapter in my life and allow me to have hope to start anew again. I now consider Herbert a part of my extended family because of the great and caring service he provided for me. I recommend Herbert with no reservations to anyone considering bankruptcy.

Amazing guy, fantastic lawyer, communication and results!
Herb was able to represent me with very limited notice, which I can't imagine was easy to do. My case involved my now, former business partner, attempting to file bankruptcy, cancel my emplolyment contract and freeze me out, which was very detailed and complicated being an officer and shareholder of the company. I found Herb via web search and am very lucky I did. Herb assessed my situation, explained every step so I could understand them and truly went above and beyond. From day one to the conclusion the communication was outstanding, and he was happy to answer my many questions along the way. Herb and his obvious many years of experience and knowledge, produced a fantastic settlement and I truly value him, his work and his personality. The outcome I proposed was very "out of the box," but Herb made it happen. For anyone with a bankrupcty-based case, Herb is the best!

Tough Situation Made Better
Herb took over our case when our first BK attorney messed up. He helped us navigate the process, refile the case, and guided us toward the best course of action for our situation. He is very accessible, and a good negotiator. We were glad to meet him, and highly recommend him to others.

Couldn’t be happier!
I used Herbert Weinberg for my recent bankruptcy case and couldn’t be more happy. He was more than accommodating for what fit my schedule and was genuinely interested in helping me with all of my questions, putting me at ease with the entire process beginning to end. Bankruptcy can be an anxiety filled process but every time I met or spoke with him I immediately felt back to feeling “myself”. Choosing the RIGHT attorney is the first step in the bankruptcy process, and definitely have no reservations in putting your confidence Attorney Weinberg. Thanks for your services and helping me put my life back in order Herb!

Fantastic Experience A+++
Another prominent attorney recommended I see Herb for my specific legal issues. Herb from the first moment I sat down was kind attentive and very detailed on how the process would work. He did not make any false promises and was open about my situation. He is a man of high character and integrity. If you need legal relief Herb is who you want to associate with. 5 stars!

Best practice
Herb is an excellent bankruptcy attorney. Conscientious, attentive to detail, and ALWAYS available for questions, chatting, etc. I highly recommend him, you will not be disappointed. Not to be over the top, but were it not for him I would have been living on the street within a few months of our first consultation. In my particular case, he was personally responsible for saving me THOUSANDS of dollars per month and completely turned my life around.

Problem-solver, knowlegeable, trust-worthy
Herb Weinberg is the ONLY attorney to go to for assistance regarding bankruptcy. He is so knowledgeable about bankruptcy law (and I called several firms before filing, as I really wanted to keep my home). Because of Herb, I was able to save my home. He is extremely responsive and when there were any issues with the court (and there were many), he immediately kept me informed and responded in a timely manner. One quality that I have come to appreciate is his demeanor. It's an awful experience to be in financial trouble, but Herb has a way of making you feel that you're not alone and it's not a shameful thing to be embarrassed about. He's a great listener and helped me solve a lot of issues with my bankruptcy case, which was pretty complex. One thing with Herb is, as his client you have readily access to contact him for random questions that arise throughout your case (his fees are on the low side, and I never felt I would get a bill each time I reached out to him - he's a straight shooter). It's nerve wracking enough to go through bankruptcy, but I grew to really put my trust in Herb - and I have no regrets! Herb will help you - take it from me!
