Outstanding
Stephen Starr obtained my debt discharge without any hitches or bumps in the road. He was responsive and efficient in everything he did, answering questions and helping me file all the papers. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

NYC Personal bankruptcy
Thank you so much for helping me navigate in the uncharted waters of personal bankruptcy. Nobody wants to go through a bankruptcy if he/she could avoid it, and I wished that I could avoid it. But “thank the stars” you made the process less stressful and less disgraceful for me. Your calm presence in court was always reassuring, which I greatly appreciated. Converting from Chapter 13 to Chapter 7 was also much smoother than I anticipated. Thank you very much for your kind and considerate assistance!!!

Stephen is a professional bankruptcy attorney that helped to bring an incredible "Peace of Mind" to my family and I. We found ourselves with several real estate properties and an outstanding credit card debt back during the mortgage crisis. Bankruptcy is extremely embarrassing. However, I felt comfortable giving Stephen and his associates all of the information he needed to help me. Just recently, 7 years later, I contacted him with some questions about the bankruptcy. He clearly remembered who I was and promptly responded. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering bankruptcy.
