100% recommended
After hiring another “attorney” we lost all hope of a fresh start, taking months(4) just to review the petition and pretty much stealing our money since he did not do any work at the end. Working with LUCID LAW the process was flawless and very easy since the first phone call. Words can not express how thankful we are with the team at LUCID LAW, they made what seemed to be impossible possible. They were always on top of every single thing, they made sure we fully understood every step of the process before , during and even after filing the petition, people with those ethics and will to help other people are very hard to find nowadays. THANK YOU LUCID LAW 100% RECOMMENDED

So grateful to the Lucid Law team
Lucid Law assisted my husband and I with our bankruptcy matter. Throughout the whole experience, both with an intital Chapter 13 filing in 2019 and then conversion to Chapter 7 this year, Karina and her team were always extremely professional, kind, patient and knowledgable. They worked hard to help us attain our discharge and I would highly recommend their services. In such a scary, trying time, we never felt alone. With all the questions we had, I always felt confident that Lucid Law had the answers. Their hard work and commitment got us the results we needed. I cannot speak highly enough about them.

she's excellent!
A few years ago I realized I needed some assistance in helping me file for bankruptcy because I really needed to start over. I was an absolute mess and I needed someone who would be patient with me and walk me through the process. After much research I came across Ms. Lucid's Facebook Business page. After I reading the reviews I decided to make an appointment and I drove all the way from West Orange to meet with her. I didn't regret it. She turned out to be everything I hoped for and more! She put my mind at ease with her patient and calm demeanor. And she took the time to listen and broke everything down for me. I highly highly recommend her!

One of The Best Attorney's Around
Wow where do I begin? Attorney Karina Lucid is a truly a top notch attorney! I have had Karina assist me with my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. I was on the verge of losing my home and Karina have helped stop the foreclosure on my home and created a wonderful repayment plan with the Chapter 13. She was even able to strip off my 2nd mortgage. Without her assistance, I truly believe the outcomes I had would not have been the same. She walks you through every step of the way and lets you know what all possible outcomes could be. She is very attentive to detail and always took the time to speak with me on terms that I could understand. Thank you Attorney Lucid for all your dedication to my case and helping me through this difficult time.

A family feel, in a time you need it the most.
Let's face it.., if you are looking for a bankruptcy and/or debt litigation/mediation attorney, most likely is does not fall under the category of one of the greatest times of your life. In fact it can have a severe emotional toll on you and your family..., leading to fear, depression, and much more. I thank God that I met Karina. She literally is a light at the end of the tunnel, a tunnel that leads to a new beginning. It is rare to find the expertise and professionalism combined with compassion and grace that Karina possess. She has held the torch for myself and my family. She walked us through the entire Bankruptcy process, ensuring us that all would be ok, leading the charge for the challenging uphill battle while remaining poised the entire way. Three and a half years later I can tell you everything she ensured us has come and continues to come to fruition as the time passes. Her work holds true, everything was filed perfectly. We are completely protected and the view at the top of the mountain is magnificent. If you are starting your journey there is no one I would recommend or trust more to help you and your family through this difficult time. If things feel like they are falling apart, call Karina to help you put it back together. She gets it done, and gets it done right.

The Right Lawyer at a difficult time
My husband and I retained Ms. Lucid, Esq. to help us negotiate our way through a bankruptcy. She was professional and knowledgable - but also treated us with kindness, dignity and respect. It was successful, and we learned a great deal from her throughout the process. I would highly recommend her.

Client Review For Karina Pia Lucid, Esq.
Due to my financial circumstances which included unemployment and several real estate matters, I had to file for bankruptcy and about a year ago my bankruptcy was finalized. I spoke to several Attorney's and was discouraged because they didn't seem to understand my entire financial circumstances and my impression was that I wouldn't receive the personal attention I needed. I didn't want my bankruptcy handled like it was a “drive through” bankruptcy, I needed allot of expert guidance on my specific financial needs. A friend told me about meeting Karina at a networking group meeting and hiring her to handle her bankruptcy. Karina did an outstanding job on her bankruptcy; my friend liked working with her on a professional and personal level. I had the same experience that my friend had with Karina. Her guidance, caring and expertise made the bankruptcy process easier for me. I’ve told my friends who know of my bankruptcy, that no one else could have handled my bankruptcy as well as Karina did. My friend gave me a gift when she shared her story of the circumstances that led her to file for bankruptcy and by recommending that I speak to Karina. I prepared the information Karina asked for and when I met with her she understood my entire financial circumstances and advised me on the best type of bankruptcy for me to do. I had the opposite experience with the other Attorney’s I spoke to. I hired Karina the day I had my consultation and without hesitation I would recommend to anyone who needs her legal expertise to hire her. Karina is down to earth and really cares about her clients. She has always given me the personal attention I needed and has gone above and beyond in providing me with additional guidance. I will also work with her on another matter that needs to be negotiated. Karina still continues to advise me on how to proceed to save me money and time on my legal matters. She is always concerned about saving me money and honest to where she even advises me if there is any part of my legal needs that could be handled by another Attorney to save me money. I've written this client review in the hope that it will help anyone who is in the process of making a decision about going through the bankruptcy process and seeking outstanding legal advice. Good luck and all the best! PS – I prefer not to give out my name in this client review but if you would like to speak to me, please let Karina know you would like to speak to client J and she can give you my phone number. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Best Lawyer Ever!!!
Karina Lucid is an excellent attorney. She was very knowledgeable, personable, and very client oriented. She always made me feel at ease and helped me to nagivate through the legal process feeling very confident in her ability to represent me. She was always available to answer questions and she made me feel comfortable with my current situation. She was reassuring, yet she gave me facts and options, and not just what I wanted to hear. I had a great overall experience with her representation. If you want someone who is client focused and knowledgeable Karina is all of that and much, much more. If I was ever in this situation again, but hopefully not I would most definitely seek out Karina as the one to represent me.

A real professional with proper attention to detail.
I met Karina by sheer chance through Avvo about 2 years ago but it was an absolute blessing. I am still involved in a complicated situation and Karina has been by my side. She understands the situation and understands the proper way of handling things. I highly recommend her.

Great Lawyer, Great Person
I worked with Karina on a number of cases and always found her to be extremely knowledgeable, hardworking, and an asset to every case. She takes a balanced, collaborative approach to legal matters and never fails to consider what would be the best and highest result for all concerned. I would highly recommend her.
