 As a lawyer in Western North Carolina, I feel very at home in the Appalachian area.  I grew up in a small town in Eastern Tennessee, and am glad to be back in these mountains.

In addition to full-time practice of Consumer and Business Bankruptcy Law, I also work in the areas of Family Law and Business Law. 

When I am not working, I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, and fly-fishing.  Asheville, North Carolina is truly a mecca for the outdoor athlete.  With so many races, events, and opportunities, Asheville is really a wonderful place to live if you enjoy being in the outdoors.

My wife and I filed for bankruptcy this year and we were very pleased we found Amita Peltz. Bankruptcy has a stigma attached to it that made us feel we were somehow inadequate. Amita was knowledgeable, professional, courteous and made us feel better about ourselves. We are happy we retained her services.

We hired Amita Peltz as our lawyer and was pleased with the results. It is was a difficult time for our family knowing that our finances were being drained, due to a house that would not sell. During our consultations with Amita, she provided us with legal clarity & confidence in the choices we were making from her advice. Bankruptcy is difficult & I am so thankful for her compassion. She was very knowledgable and always accessible to answer our questions. Thanks Amita!

Great lawyer
Ms. Peltz did our bankruptcy this year and we were very happy with her services. We had some complex property issues and she was very thorough in handling our legal matter for us and making sure we were fully protected. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking help with bankruptcy.

Best bankruptcy experience
Ms. Peltz was very experienced in dealing with our bankruptcy issues. She knew the law on the subject, was very honest, kind and a pleasure to work with. Although we were upset about filing bankruptcy, she made the process very smooth and easy for us. From the consultation through our court date, she was there for us every step of the way. We are so thankful we found her for our bankruptcy needs.
