About me

Jesse Langel is an impassioned state and federal court litigator set out to protect consumers from the harsh effects of money judgments (bank seizures and wage garnishments). 

Founding The Langel Firm, in 2008, Jesse has remained focused on studying laws involved in vacating money judgments and defending debt lawsuits. Providing solid, free information on his website has been key to developing the firm's brand. 

Jesse has developed a way to deliver effective, cutting-edge lawyering to cash-strapped New Yorkers who are brought to their knees by devastating bank restraints, wage garnishments and other debt-collection litigation tactics.

  • Dena Operman

    I have known Jesse since law school. He is an experienced and dedicated attorney who works tirelessly to obtain the best results for his clients. Jesse was opposing counsel on one of my cases and I was impressed with the fact that he went toe to toe with me each step of litigation process. He is tenacious and someone I would work with again at any time.
