Barbie is fantastic! I immediately felt comfortable with her beginning with my consultation, during which I knew I would hire her, all the way through to her appearance with me in court. Barbie is professional, personable, courteous, prompt and of course, knowledgeable. I did not want to file for bankruptcy. However, I am happy I did so with Ms. Lieber and I highly recommend her. Thank you, Barbie!

I interviewed many attorney's and found Mrs. Lieber. I found her to be the most professional, attentive and pro active attorney that I had spoken too. I felt she took the time to listen to my situation get to know me and came up with the best possible solution for my family. I called her and we spoke in debt for over an hour. After speaking with her I decided to hire her and it was the best decision I made. She prepared me well, answered all my emails and phone calls the same day. The day we went for my hearing there were many cases ahead of us that got postponed or thrown out because the lawyers weren't prepared or they had other lawyers fill in for them. Mrs. Lieber said she would be there when I hired her and she was. When it was my turn it took not even 5 minutes and I got my bankruptcy because of the care and time she took to prepare my case. She is so on top of things and made sure I gave her all the documentation she needed. I cannot thank her enough and I highly recommend her. She did everything she said she would do and more. She cares about her clients and it shows in her work.

I was devastated with my credit card debt and student loans. I could barely pay my minimum monthly payment. Situation was getting worst and I could not buy enough foods and other goods. I was sunk into a deep ocean. I started to search a Bankruptcy lawyer. I reviewed Barbie's profile and learnt a lot from her website. Finally I called her and got first stage of remedy from her. Right away I hired her my lawyer and setup my first meeting. In her first meeting she gave me all paper works done and prepared me step by step to go for the court.I went to her office several times and every time she groomed me in a proper way and ever though every time she offered me snacks, waters and drinks.That was really nice of her and she was very kind.Every time I asked any question she answered me over phone or email and both within shortly. She attended with me in the court the entire time until the case was closed. I highly recommend her as lawyer for any one.

My situation was very bad and recently turned out to be even worse after my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. My debt for Credit Cards was $ 105,000 with monthly interest charges $ 1,300 and minimum monthly payments $ 3,100. There is 3 Student Loans on my shoulder for total $ 86,000 - $800 every month. My payments were being paid to interest and I was just spinning my wheels. Plus regular monthly payment for rent, electricity, internet, car payment, insurance, food, clothes, my wife credit cards, student loan …….. another $ 4000. To survive we did utilized credit cards, every available dollar used to pay some bills or buying some goods. All credits were used at 100%, credit score going down and down. No vacations, no something special to buy, no life, no future.
Wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in October, we start looking for good hospital and started treatments at Memorial Sloan Catering, one of the best in area…. but bills started coming and we had no money to pay it. Daughter pushed us for bankruptcy. I did intensive research all over WEB, had meeting with some lawyers in Brooklyn and Manhattan. I stopped looking after talking to Barbie. We did select Barbie as my lawyer and this was the best decision ever. Barbie kept me apprised of everything and explained it all. She was so transparent and was always there to answer all of my questions. If I send an email, she immediately sends one back! Barbie was able to reduce my monthly payments to $2,245 for 60 months. (She was able to postpone the hearing to await to see which creditors actually filed claims, which ended up being less than anticipated.) This strategic move saved me about $1,000. That was amazing! We can see light at end of tunnel now. We will be free of debt in 56 month. We can have small vacation after we finished battle with cancer. Thank you, Barbie.

About six months ago, I was drowning in debt and didnt know what to do. I began looking for ways to get out of my situation, but just about everywhere I turned seemed to lead to a dead end. It seemed the only option I had left was bankruptcy.
I knew nothing about it though, So in an effort to gain knowledge on the situation, I began looking for a bankruptcy lawyer to discuss my problem. To my surprise, there were thousands of Lawyers in the NY area who specialized in bankruptcy. What surprised me even more though l, was in this pool of thousands, everywhere I looked I saw the same name at the top of the list; Barbie Dawn Lieber.
I said to myself, how can any lawyer have this many wonderful reviews? It's impossible!! With my situation becoming more dyre though, I decided I needed to find out for myself.
The next morning, I reached out to Barbie's office to schedule an appointment. I had expected to get a receptionist who would tell she was busy and that I could have an appointment in a month or so. I mean, a lawyer with that many great reviews, she surely must be busy. To my surprise though, Barbie herself answered my call. She also told me she was available to meet that afternoon. I said, how can this be? and I started thinking back to my initial thoughts from the day before regarding her reviews.
With my skepticism of Barbie growing, I headed off that afternoon to meet her at her office. Within a few minutes of my arriving at her office, Barbie, very pleasantly, came to great me. We sat down and began talking through my situation. After only a few minutes of talking, I realized how completely wrong my preconceived notions of her were. Barbie was knowledgeable, thorough in the questions she asked and completely professional. She walked me through the chapter 13 bankruptcy process (filing, 341 meeting, confirmation hearing, etc.) and showed me how it could be a beneficial solution to my problem.
Although It seemed like a good idea for me, I didn't want to commit right then and there. We left off that I would get back in touch with her in a few days and plan a course of action.
After a day of deliberation, I decided to file for chapter 13 with Barbie as my lawyer. I called her and asked her to begin preparing the paperwork and within a few days I was filed.
For those who don't know, about 2 months after filing comes the 341 meeting. I had been in contact with Barbie the whole time since I had filed, but she scheduled a call with me the night before the meeting to walk me through what to expect one last time.
At the 341 meeting, I arrived early as instructed by Barbie, so I could see how other meetings were conducted. To my amazement, I could not believe how ill prepared other attorneys and their clients were. They were unable to answer simple questions or provide the relevant info the trustee was asking for. After about four hours of watching case by case be a comedy of errors, it was finally my turn. Barbie and I walked up to the front of the room and sat before the trustee to begin the meeting. Thanks to our preparation, the process which lasted about 20-30 minutes for most lasted less than 5 minutes. I couldn't believe it.
With the 341 meeting now being behind me. All that was left was my confirmation hearing. This is where the judge confirms your bankruptcy plan and sets you off on the path of financial reorganization. At the hearing, much like the 341 meeting, I watched as case after case got dismissed or adjourned to a later date because the lawyer or client wasn't prepared. This was not the case with Barbie's client though. Aside from myself, Barbie had three clients that day up for their attempt at confirmation and every single case she had was confirmed. Much like the time she spent with me, she prepared all of her clients in the same manner and led all of their cases to success.
I can't thank Barbie enough for all she has done! She is an absolutely wonderful attorney!

Barbie Lieber is a talented Lawyer. She helped me with my Bankruptcy case when I did not have a hope. Credit card companies were calling my house every day threatening me and I did not know what to do. I am married and have 4 children to support with a lower paying job, my wife with no income. However, when I met Ms. Lieber, she worked very hard for me, she filed a Bankruptcy on my behalf and I won the case. At the 341 meeting, I was so nervous but she was there to support me. She is friendly and can be reached at any time. If you need a Bankruptcy lawyer please give Barbie Lieber a call.

My husband and I approached Barbie to help us after an endless attempt at a short sale ruined our credit and consumed our lives. By miraculously managing to get the mortgage company to withdraw their claim(!!!) and helping us find all of those hidden expenses that make raising a family so financially challenging, she was able to provide us with a very "doable" Chapter 13 payment plan, thus pulling us out of a very dark hole. We will be forever grateful!

She is an awesome and amazing attorney. The positive reviews that I read lived up to their expectations. She preps you to the point where you are extremely confident in front of the trustee. She does everything she has to do to make the process go by fast and easy for you. While other attorneys had their cases adjourned due to mistakes in the filing. Barbie made no mistake in my filing and our case was closed in 2 minutes. She is straight forward, compassionate and understanding. She is highly respected by the trustees in the court, so they are confident that the information that she is providing is accurate and true. She's such an excellent attorney I can't even put it into words. You helped me get a fresh start Barbie I don't know how to repay you. Thank you so much. God bless you. Keep doing great work for the people who need it.

My wife and I were struggling with out of control credit card and student loan debt. We consulted with several Chapter 13 lawyers and were given payment plan options that we definitely could not afford. Then my wife found Barbie Lieber. We spoke to her on the phone at length. She listened to our concerns then we sat down with her. She gathered our information and worked tirelessly to form a plan that we could afford. We are happy to say our plan was approved. It amazed us that out of 100 cases handled that morning, it looked like only three would be approved. Two of which were Barbie Lieber's. We are so grateful to Barbies for her speedy responses and helping us to get our lives back on track.

My husband and I contacted Ms Lieber because we exhausted all other means of being able to pay our bills. The only option left was to declare bankruptcy. She was professional and courteous and we felt comfortable discussing our situation. She was always available when we called and if we had to leave a message, she was quick in returning the call. She took the time to really prepare us for court and remained with us till the end. She was great with the preparation. We received a full bankruptcy. We are so grateful for all her hard work and highly recommend her. Leah D.
