Thank you Demetri!
I had procrastinated dealing with my financial issues for so long that I was sure I was doomed. Thankfully, I met and hired Demetri and he assured me that he could help eradicate my problems and he did. Demetri is no nonsense. He tells you exactly what you are up against and the results that you can expect. He is very diligent. He will answer all your calls, questions, and emails in a very timely manner. Demetri is also very easy to communicate and work with throughout all the different processes of your case. I highly recommend hiring Demetri A. Braynin as your lawyer.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST!
I had some creditor letters due to divorce and I originally contacted Mr. Braynin to see about filing bankruptcy. He told me that several of the letters were unlawful and they could get me $1000 for each one, and that it would cost me nothing whether we won or lost the cases. I ended up getting a settlement for EVERY letter and made $4,000!!!!! I am so grateful for their help. This is NOT A SCAM. They are professional lawyers with an office in Huntingdon Valley that I went too. Send them ANY creditor letters you have to see if they can help you.

Great person and excellent attorney
Demetri Braynin is by far the best lawyer I've ever dealt with. Most importantly, he always took time to answer all of my questions, always answered my phone calls and was available when needed. I always dealt directly with him, not a secretary or a paralegal. Needless to say he is an excelent and knowledgeble lawyer,and if I ever need legal help again - he is definitely the first one I will contact for help.

An excellent choice to serve as your attorney.
I've known Dmitry as a trustworthy friend for over a decade. He has always been a man of integrity and shown extreme dedication to his work and interests. We've recently worked together and as always Dmitry had been a conscientious and dependable partner.

Honest, Fair , Concerned
While I was not able to be helped, being so far away. He was, extremely kind, courteous and professional. He was very open and understanding to my issue. He gave me sincere advice, and was very concerned. He emailed me a few times as a follow up, and gave me information and direction as though I was in his office. The advice and path he gave was invaluable. I am deeply grateful for his assistance and the advice he gave me saved me financially.

Demetri came through when I needed it most
Demetri really saved the day for me! I had fallen on hard times after losing my job and was so broke that I couldn't even afford a bankruptcy lawyer. For a while I didn't know how I would ever deal with my growing debt, but luckily I was referred to Demetri by the Consumer Bankruptcy Assistance Program (CBAP). The thing I liked most about Demetri was that he didn't treat me any differently because I was a pro bono client. He helped me just like any paying client and guided me step by step through the entire process of my Chapter 7 case. I don't know what I would have done without him.

I was very satisfied with how Dmitry handled my case and would recommend him to anyone dealing with a chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Posted by Jill | September 3, 2013
Very knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyer. Chapter 7 bankruptcy matter.
Mr. Braynin took my bankruptcy case when none of the other lawyers wanted to touch it. He was terrific at guiding me through every step of the bankruptcy process. Extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. In fact during our first meeting he dedicated more than two hours of his time to evaluate my financial situation in order to make sure I qualify for bankruptcy. Definitely recommended.

Excellent attorney!
My experience working with Attorney Braynin has been one of great satisfaction. I had to file for bankruptcy due to overwhelming credit card debt. He has been wonderful and has worked with me side by side consistently until my case was over. He was not only patient and understanding but also went above and beyond so that my case was heard and handled appropriately. I would recommend his services to all people looking for a tough yet understanding attorney

A great person, but even better lawyer! Debt collectors beware!
If you are being harassed by a debt collectors, seek out Demetri and he will resolve everything. After I got into an accident with no insurance, I was being hounded by debt collectors for almost $12,000. They were even threatening to take away my driver's license. Demetri solved everything and I didn't even have to make a single payment! Thank you so much!
