In September of 2013 I was in a horrific motorcycle accident. My odds of survival were less than 5% (literally). Someone failed to see me or yield the right of way and they pulled out in front of me, and I had absolutely no chance to avoid the impact. I was taken to Orange Regional Medical Center where they immediately gave me a catscan, and the injury I sustained was a torn aorta, the main artery from the heart. not one single person actually believed I'd survive, for nobody had survived long enough for surgery. Once that was discovered I was flown by helicopter to Westchester Hospital where they performed heart surgery to try and and save my life. I ended up with a stent where the aorta was torn. After all of this, I had no insurance and wasn't covered under "No-fault". Over the next couple of years trying to workout an agreement, I found it impossible to have to pay back almost half a million dollars. That's when I looked into and met Allen Kolber. This man helped save my life in more ways than one, maybe not physically, but mentally and financially. My wife and I even contemplated Holding off of our planned wedding because of this financial crisis. I was getting served left and right to appear in court, but when Allen herd my story he assured me that he would help me any way he could, and that he did. I filed for bankruptcy after exhausting all other options, and Allen was the man who was able to make this happen. Allen was very kind, understanding, and most of all, trustworthy. From the minute I walked in his office. His assistants were also kind and genuine, and they were on top of everything. They even knew my voice and knew it was me every single (thousand times) I called with questions. They helped me just as much as Allen did, and made, what I invisioned to be insanely stressful experience, one that was smoother than I ever thought . If there's anyone who can help you with a financial crisis look no further. Team Allen Kolber is the way to go. Thank you Allen for helping me close a difficult chapter in my life!

Allen and his paralegal staff professionally and successfully navigated the approval process of the State of New York Office of the Attorney General and related state court on our behalf, thus enabling our synagogue to sell part of our existing property.

Allen handled my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. He made sure I understood everything that was going to take place, and made sure that my concerns were addressed. Any time I had questions during the process, I was able to get an answer quickly. Even when one of my creditors tried to accelerate the timeline by bringing in their own attorney, Allen just made it go away. Filing bankruptcy was a big hassle, but Allen and his team made it as painless as possible. If I'd known it could be this easy, I would have done it sooner, instead of trying to "tough it out." Allen is a rock star.

When I entered Allen's office for the first time, I was very nervous. I find attorneys to be abrupt....not judging all just my experience. Immediately after meeting Allen, I realized that he was different. So easy to talk to that I was able to discuss my situation openly. The end results was he did the very best he could for me and I was extremely happy with the results. Even though the process was tiresome, the experience was not. Kudos to Mr. Kolber and his team for really making the process easy for me.

Allen put me at ease the first time I met with him. He took the time to really listen to my situation and explain my options in a very knowledgeable and professional way. There was absolutely no pressure. I decided on Chapter 7 and found that the fees were very reasonable.
Throughout the process Allen along with Sylvia and Nadya, his paralegals, were great at guiding me through and letting me know what documents they needed. They were patient, kind and sure to answer any questions I had promptly whether I called or e-mailed. They made sure I knew exactly what to expect which made a potentially complicated process feel very smooth.
At my 341 creditors meeting I felt calm and ready with Allen at my side. Allen made sure I was prepared, and I was. I am now a month away from having my debt discharged, and I am relieved and happy to get a fresh financial start.
I would recommend Allen to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional and truly caring bankruptcy attorney. He knows his stuff and provides great personalized service.

Very knowledgeable and open.
A very good listener (even though often I had repeatedly asked the same questions!).
Was able to allay my fears and put me at ease. Always had an answer to most any query.
A very good coach in preparing me as to what to expect and when to expect it.
Very, very thorough with the collection and amassing of
all the necessary paperwork and documents.
For such a busy lawyer as he, he always took time to take a phone call
or return the call if he was with another client.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM and HIS VERY HELPFUL and ATTENTIVE STAFF!....BRAVO!!!
