An unexpected, significantly, life-altering experience!
Lawyer David Offen is an incredibly unique individual. He is very passionate about his job as a bankruptcy lawyer. David is non-judgmental - does not make you feel any worse than you already might be feeling because of your financial situation. He looks over everything and assures you that he will find a plan that will help you. I still remember the day I walked into his office, sat down with him and started the process back in 2018. My Chapter 13 bankruptcy payments were completed a few months ago and my bankruptcy has been discharged. David Offen will do his part to help things change for the better for you. The Law Offices of David M. Offen is the place to call to make that huge financial difference / improvement in your life.

The Giant slayer!
If you find your self in trouble and overwhelmed, this man is a god sent. I never thought I was going to get out of my troubles and I felt like I’d never be able to pay off my debts. Today I’m debt free, with a thriving credit score, in the middle of refinancing a building I own, and ready to buy more property. When I was in trouble I prayed to God, and he lead me to find David! A modern day giant slayer, this man got people off my back and was with me all the way till I got back on track ! God bless him and his family!

David Offen took care of my Bankruptcy. He walked me through everything. This was 2017. Now 2021 something came up maybe related to this. He handled it. Twice refused pay. One of a kind left. He stands by his word and work. Worth a million. If you need a great Attorney David Offen is worth it. I would get in line and wait.

Review of David Offen
David helped me get a new start. His calm manner and caring attitude relieved a great deal of stress. The procedure was explained throughout in a manner that was easy to understand. Even after my case was discharged he was available to help me with a tax lien that was paid, but the lien was still active. I am grateful to have had him as my lawyer.

Such a relief
After the tragic loss of my husband last year and learning that I was left with a mountain of debt and no life insurance, my son referred me to the Law Offices of David Offen to discuss bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy was recommended and 3 1/2 months after filing, my bankruptcy had been discharged. I can’t thank them enough for helping me out of such a horrible situation.
