After receiving a notice of garnishment, I realized that I had to do something. I saw an Avvo commercial and posted my situation. Five attorneys responded within 15 minutes. Once I read Barbie Lieber’s response, I was sold. She spent over an hour on the phone with me and I felt very comfortable.
I was drowning in debt and paying over $2,000 per month in credit card debt. I couldn’t put aside my quarterly taxes, therefore, sinking me further in debt. Barbie advised me to file ASAP and thank GOD I did. Two days later my bank account was frozen. However, since I filed before hand they had to release my funds.
Now I’m in a chapter 13 plan for at least 60 percent LESS than what creditors were demanding. Until the bankruptcy, I risked falling behind on my mortgage, etc. Barbie Lieber surpassed my expectations and saved my family and me from financial ruin. I would highly refer her to anyone in need.

We came into Lieber & Lieber with a broken dream. Our first home purchase had become a nightmare.
After 9 months, we were unable to obtain financing because of specifics in the contract. We stood to lose our 10% deposit (for a NYC condo- that is a lot). Our previous lawyer failed to protect us from such an event.
Needless to say, we fired him after we met Barbie.
What Barbie did for us was nothing short of a miracle. Not only did she revise and renegotiate the contract, but she made sure it was iron clad with protections for us.
She worked day and night, while sick and on vacation, to make sure everything was running smoothly. She was on top of all the issues (and there were many, so many). She resolved them quickly, professionally, and many times very creatively. She found solutions to
problems that could have prevented the purchase that no one else thought about.
In the end, after almost a year of struggling to finally have a home, Barbie got us to closing. We have keys in our hands today because Barbie moved mountains for us.
And as if that weren't enough Barbie was so friendly, nice, and caring.
We felt that she genuinely wanted this for us just as much as we wanted it.
Barbie protected us and made us feel secure after so many months of uncertainty. She was not only the best lawyer we've ever met, but also one of the best people.

The reviews about Barbie Lieber are true! I came to her at one of the lowest points in my life and she gave me a lifeline. I could not pay to keep my home, my debt was beyond unmanageable and my spouse's chronic illness had taken a major toll on my life. I was coming off a very bad experience with another bankruptcy lawyer who had given me terrible advice and Barbie was able to rectify it and get me started on the right track. She was reassuring, thorough, attentive, extremely knowledgable and amazingly compassionate. She always took the time to answer my questions and prepped me really well for my meeting with the trustee. I watched as other lawyers left out paperwork which caused delays for their clients. Barbie empowered me to take charge of my finances and helped me organize my expenditures and create a realistic budget. It has been a pleasure dealing with her and throughout the process, I felt less stress knowing that I was in such capable hands. Barbie truly rocks and she loves dogs!

I have known Barbie almost 20 years. We met at Tenzer Greenblatt, LLP (now known as Blank Rome LLP). I witnessed her successfully handle complex bankruptcies, overcoming all obstacles. Barbie is highly knowledgeable, intelligent, personable, efficient, detail oriented and creative. I often refer bankruptcy, litigation and real estate matters to her because she is the attorney outside my firm that I trust the most. Her services are of an A+ rating, but with very reasonable rates. I always get excellent feedback from the people that I have referred to her. Barbie represents each client as if it were her one and only or a close relative. Since Barbie is also a litigator, she is able to provide additional protection to her bankruptcy and real estate clients, foreseeing and resolving any potential issues. She is a “lawyer’s lawyer,” promptly responding to any inquiries I have concerning litigation, debt/bankruptcy and employment related matters. – G. Helfgott, Esq.

Barbie is an extremely knowledgeable attorney. She's a true "lawyer's lawyer". She's always willing to assist a fellow attorney and bounce ideas and thoughts off of. She has been extremely helpful in helping to come up with solutions to unique issues in bankruptcy cases. I'm glad she's always around when I need another brain to pick.
