About Christian

Learn Christian’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Chapter 13 bankruptcy
    These types of bankruptcies are what we refer to as reorganization type bankruptcies. They are not to be confused with debt consolidations. Let me repeat that: THEY ARE NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH DEBT CONSOLIDATIONS! This is a common misconception about Chapter 13 cases - that they are just debt consolidations where you end up paying everyone back. That is false. In Chapter 13 cases you get rid of debts just like you do in any other type of bankruptcy case.

    41 years, 6,200 cases

  2. Bankruptcy and debt
    In 2013 I helped folks eliminate BLANK dollars’ worth of debt. If you extrapolate that out over my 31 year career, I’m approaching BLANK in debt GONE FOR GOOD! No sum is insurmountable! How much debt can I help eliminate for you?

    41 years, 9,000 cases

  3. Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    These types of bankruptcies are what we refer to as liquidation type bankruptcies. Chapter 7’s are asset based, and typically are the type of bankruptcy that you might consider filing if you have limited income, limited assets, and have no special circumstances. Why? Because you need to make below a certain income level to file this type of bankruptcy. You can also potentially lose assets if you own too many. I commonly refer to Chapter 7’s as “plain vanilla” type bankruptcies.

    41 years, 3,000 cases

  4. Chapter 11 bankruptcy
    Discover the TRUTH about using Bankruptcy to point your finances in the right direction.

    41 years, 500 cases

From the Desk of: Attorney Christian B. Felden

Distinguished Author and Bankruptcy Attorney

With over 31 years of experience and knowledge


Hi, I’m Chris.


And I can sum up why I do what I do in one sentence:


I like helping people and I consider it a privilege to get to fight for my clients and help them regain control of their lives after suffering a financial setback.


A little bit about me…


I grew up in a blue collar family outside of New York City. My father was a proud United States Marine and an NYPD Motorcycle Police Officer, who was injured in the line of duty. My mother, quite possibly had the hardest job of all – raising three growing, boisterous and high-spirited boys. Believe me when I say I know what it means to work hard for a living and I know working hard for a living can also mean working even harder to keep what you have spent your life working toward.


In these uncertain financial and economic times, having the right person in your corner can mean the difference between taking control of your situation or allowing your situation to take control of you. I have devoted my life’s work to fighting for honest, hardworking people who have found themselves in circumstances beyond their control, I guess you could say this has always been my calling and I absolutely love getting to be a guiding light at a time of need.


I have a proven track record of helping my clients eliminate insurmountable amounts of debt and take their first steps toward regaining their financial freedom. I am also proud to be an endorsed attorney by Dave Ramsey.


I look forward to working with you.



Let my family advocate for yours.

Excellent Choice!!
I was in danger of losing my home and Mr. Felden and his staff not only helped me save my home from foreclosure, he also got rid of my second mortgage entirely!! Plus he got my car payment cut in half!! I highly recommend Mr. Felden.

I highly recommend Mr. Felden to handle your bankruptcy case. Both he and his office are extremely helpful and professional. They helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life and literally gave me my life back. When I first started investigating filing bankruptcy I was overwhelmed and confused by all of the complex and conflicting information I found online. Mr. Felden was able to break everything down for me and explain everything to me in a simple straightforward manner. He is obviously well liked and trusted by the bankruptcy trustee and clerks who seemed to enjoy working with him. An overall wonderful experience for me through a difficult time in my life.
