My name is Jennifer Weil and I practice bankruptcy and consumer law in northern New Jersey. I help people with their debt problems, whether they want to file for bankruptcy or not.

 

My mission is to help people get out of debt and move on with their lives. I also enjoy helping people stop debt collectors in their tracks. No one likes to be pursued by debt collectors through letters and phone calls.

 

The types of debt problems that I help with include not only credit card debt, but also student loan debt and debt-collection harassment. My practice is based in Hoboken, New Jersey and I meet with clients by appointment only.

 

Let me help you get out of debt. Let me help you deal with the harassing letters or phone calls from debt collectors. Please call me for a free telephone-only consultation.

I consulted with Jennifer about a matter, and while it was outside her scope of practice, she graciously took the time to speak with me and refer me to attorneys she knew could help. She has a warm, professional, caring demeanor.

Amazing and helpful!
I was worried about what to expect regarding bankruptcy. After reading positive reviews I began working with Attorney Weil. She is knowledgeable and friendly. She was always open for questions and to address concerns. I would recommend her and I would definitely contact her again if needed in the future. I am super grateful for all her help.

She was very friendly and informative. She gave me many different options and gave me actual advice as an attorney but also as "Jennifer" which is what I truly needed. I needed to know the legal aspect as well as potential work arounds and workable gray areas.

She Terminated My Debts
If you are looking for professional bankruptcy representation, go with Jennifer N. Weil, Esq. Jennifer represented me and worked hard to cover all the angles of my unique debt situation. I was extremely impressed by not only her extensive knowledge on the subject, but above all, her ability to deliver results. She is professional, prompt in communications, and walks you through the process with the most personal attention possible. Her work ethic demonstrates that she truly cares about every client she comes in contact with and is willing to do anything to deliver a result.

Student loan help
Let me begin by saying that my being pleasantly surprised with Ms. Weil is an understatement. Most importantly, Jennifer first made me feel comfortable(I had never been in any situation like this before). She answered every question I had regarding my student loan and answered questions I didn't know I had yet. I was very prepared, and because of Jennifer, I have successfully settled my student loan debt. I would also like to add that Jennifer was kind enough to follow up through email, and again, I really did feel her genuine concern regarding my situation. I will happily, HAPPILY recommend Jennifer's services to anyone in a similar situation.

Amazing and Knowledgable Bankruptcy Lawyer
Absolutely amazing lawyer and kind which was a definite plus. I had gotten into a financial hardship due to my student loans and Jennifer helped me step by step in my bankruptcy filing. She was always there when I had a question or just needed some kind words. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has to file for bankruptcy as she is attentive and on top of your case. Wonderful woman to work with and very smart. I'm very grateful for all the work she has done for me.

Review of Jennifer Weil
Jennifer handled my case so well, from the highest level of professionalism to making me comfortable enough to ask the "stupid questions". She is incredibly knowledgeable, communicative and dedicated.
Posted by anonymous | February 12, 2014
Highly recimmended
Jennifer Weil handled my bankruptcy proceedings. While completely professional, I also found her to be a very personable and concerned individual. In general, she was very good about following up on the details of my case, and keeping me apprised of deadlines and procedures. She seems to possess a special sensitivity toward people in the arts, to the point that I suggested she might make a niche practice in that area. I’d be glad to recommend her.
