Amazing Experience
Working with David Babel and his team was such a pleasure! I never thought I'd ever file for bankruptcy, But after losing my job two years ago and struggling to make ends meet, I had no other choice but to file. From the first day I stepped in to Mr. Babel office, my concerns, worries, and feelings of discouragement were put to rest. Everyone was very welcoming and made me feel at ease. I appreciate the diligence of Mr. Babel's team in ensuring all of my documents were received. They also called me regularly to inform or remind me of my appointments, and provided information when I needed it. I am also very thankful of the time and patience Mr. Babel spent in making sure I understood the bankruptcy steps, and what would happen when I went to court. He took the time to answer all my questions and was very professional. Although I wish I didn't have to file for bankruptcy, I am so glad I found this law firm. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you very much Mr. Babel! I also thank your team! I greatly appreciate everyone's help!

Best bankruptcy lawyer in the Bronx!
I can't say enough nice things about Mr. Babel and his staff! I had gotten myself into a bit of a financial mess and he was able to help me. He was non judgmental and really was concerned about me and my financial outcome. He gave good solid advice and was there to answer any of my questions! I hope to never see him again, lol, but I would highly recommend David J. Babel to my family and friends!!

New Beginning
My wife told me about a filing, I was hesitant because I was disabled and feared losing everything, especially my family. However, when it came to the point of almost losing our home, I decided to stop resisting. I started my research to find the best lawyer for our situation, we were blessed to find David J. Babel Esq. We made an appointment, his office told us what to bring, we brought all that he asked for and from day one to the very end, that was his only request, “have your paperwork ready.” We were ready, and he led us through the daunting task of filing. He made no promises he couldn’t accomplish, he was upfront and honest. He helped us save our home and settled our debts. He gave us a second chance, we were able to “start afresh” thanks to his office. We keep his contact information accessible, just in case anyone ever express the need of a good lawyer, who has empathy and does his best for his clients. We will always be thankful for all the work he did. - Harris Family

Best Bankruptcy Lawyer ever
Attorney David Babel and his staff were quick and efficient while dealing with my chapter 7 bankruptcy case. The staff were always polite, respectful and always followed through with their word. I had researched other attorneys that were charging way more than Attorney’s Babel’s office and they were giving me a timeframe of 12-18 months to get it all done. David Babel got it done for me in under 4 months and that because he had to wait on me for certain documentation other than that I’m sure it would’ve been sooner. This man is an experienced professional that knows what he’s doing. I highly recommend his services.
