Andrew M. Doktofsky is passionate about protecting individuals and families affected by debt and unlawful consumer practices. This strong dedication is something that he has maintained throughout his life.


Before practicing law, Andrew served with the New York City Police Department for twenty years. He patrolled some of the city's toughest neighborhoods and held the rank of Captain upon retiring. During his career in the NYPD, Andrew learned the value of integrity and the importance of maintaining the highest possible standards of ethics. He had the honor of being awarded twenty-four medals for exemplary police work throughout these two decades.


Andrew's transition to the legal field was an extension of his concern for the wellbeing of the community and passion for the law. Making sacrifices and attending law school while still working with the NYPD, Andrew graduated from Touro Law School in 1997. After refining his knowledge and legal abilities at a small law firm, Andrew ventured out to start his own law firm, Andrew M. Doktofsky, P.C., which handles all types of bankruptcy cases including Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Long Island.


Opening his own practice was Andrew's opportunity to develop a closer relationship with clients who sought assistance during difficult times in their lives. This is the foundation of his law firm, which allows him to take his pledge to serve his clients even further.  Call to schedule a free consultation with Long Island Bankruptcy Attorney Andrew Doktofsky.

Trusted Counsel
I could not speak more highly of, nor recommend more wholeheartedly Mr. Andrew Doktofsky. Filing for bankruptcy is an extremely stressful experience and Mr. Doktofsky's calm and competence restored a sense of control to what felt completely overwhelming. I deeply appreciated that he listened attentively, was clear, upfront and fair about his fee, was thorough in all preparations, easy and available to communicate with, and prepared me well for each stage of the process, that thanks to his diligence went smoothly.

I cant thank Mr Doktofsky enough for helping me out of a very difficult situation. He was very knowledgeable, responsive and compassionate. His main concern was my situation not how much to charge me. And his rates were very reasonable. He always made himself available for questions. Even after hours. I am very grateful and fortunate to have chosen him. I highly recommend his services.

Well deserved
Mr. Doktofsky was hired to represent me against claims of an owed debt. He was able to have the judgement vacated with very little involvement from myself. His communication with us throughout the process was great. The 5 star review is well deserved. Jason F.

Termination of automatic stay
My husband and I were very satisfied with the services provided by attorney Andrew M. Doktofsky. He was successful in having an automatic stay terminated so we were able to continue the eviction process to remove the tenants residing in our house and regain use of our property. All of our phone calls and emails were returned promptly. Andrew took the time to answer all our questions and explain in detail how he would proceed so we had a good understanding how the process worked and what the time frame would be. His fee was reasonable and what he originally quoted to us on our first visit. We weren't charged anything extra or unexpected. We would highly recommend his services and would use Andrew again in the future should the need arise.

The Best Bankruptcy Lawyer Period.
My wife and I had a very complicated bankruptcy case related to a multitude of variables that Andrew help us sort through. My wife and I are beyond grateful for the dedicated time and expertise that Andrew provided us. He was very patient throughout the entire process and would answer any new concerns in a timely fashion. He provided my wife and I facts and properly managed our expectations during our bankruptcy filling. At the actual bankruptcy proceedings he was on time and well prepared which helped ease our worry. It is important to note that we received our discharge---all because of Andrew's hard work. We can not praise Andrew's work ethic, and skill enough. We whole heartedly recommend Andrew to anyone who is seeking to file for bankruptcy.

Believe it all
Andrew took me through a bankruptcy, smoothly and patiently and was always responsive to my calls and questions. Like anyone who goes through this it can be overwhelming. Andrew explained the entire process and allayed many of my fears. I consulted with other "powerhouse" firms, who charged quite a bit more, and made you feel like you were on a assembly line. If I ever had any other legal trouble whatsoever, he would be my first call. you wont do better.

Andrew M Doktofsky- not your basic attorney .
I've dealt with lawyers most of my adult life, and for the record let me state ( I don't like them ! ) if you are looking for a lawyer with morals , scruples, a straight shooter who has your best interest in mind , you will most likely NOT find it in a lawyer. Having said all of the above I set out trying to find help vacating a judgement against me. I spoke with just about every lawyer on Long Island and most were impatient , rude, or non responsive, until I read a article andrew had written on a similar case as mine, clear ,concise, and factual, with no bs. I'm not a intellectual by no means, I'm a hard working individual with just a high school diploma ( ged) and when I finally went to see andrew I found he was a retired law inforcement officer who had also worked hard all his life, with a sence of justice, compassion, empathy and very humble personality............( NOT YOUR BASIC LAWYER ) I've made a lot of bad decisions in my life, but hiring Andrew was not one of them - in fact it was probably the best decision I've ever made. Andrew had won my case ! But even if we had lost, I would have still felt the same. I'm deeply indebted to Andrew for his help and understanding. I would not hesitate to hire him again , or ask for assistance in any other matter where law is concerned.....thank you Andrew .

Responsive, professional, and knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney
I hired Mr. Doktofsky to help me with my Ch. 7 bankruptcy case. I just had a negative experience with a well-known local bankruptcy law firm, and I wanted to hire a different attorney; one that would actually return my calls and respond to my questions. Not only was Mr. Doktofsky very responsive, he listened to what I had to say, taking all factors into consideration. He then provided thoughtful, sound and relevant advice. He even called me the day before the meeting of the creditors as a courtesy. Needless to say, the meeting went smoothly, and I believe this can be attributable, in part, to his thoroughness and knowledgeable advice. He is respectful and professional, and I would recommend him without reservation. He helped alleviate much of my stress during a very difficult time in my life.
