Thank you for visiting this page to find out a little more about me. I'm a Broward County bankruptcy lawyer. I help clients get out of debt by filing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions. A core belief of mine is that everything in life is relationship based and I value the relationship that I develop with each and every client.


I know it's difficult trying to decide on a lawyer through the internet and because of that, I offer a "no charge - no obligation" initial consultation. This allows an opportunity to meet and review your financial situation. During this session, we'll discuss whatever options you may have available to get you back on your feet or out of an uncomfortable situation (lawsuits come to mind). Your best option may not be bankruptcy and if that's the case, you'll hear that from me also. I don't believe in "scare tactics" and my goal is to ease your fears and concerns - not escalate them so you'll hire me. My office is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. so you don't even have to miss work.


I have been licensed to practice law in the state of Florida since 2003. I am a member of the Florida Bar, Southern District of Florida, Broward Bar Association, American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI), National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA) and a proud member of the United States Supreme Court. All of these memberships keep me up to date on bankruptcy law, trends in bankruptcy and pending legislation that could help you!


Before becoming a lawyer, I was fortunate to work at AT&T for 21 years. There, I developed an indelible commitment to providing exceptional service at a highly professional level and producing a high quality work product. Those traits are still with me today and form the cornerstone of my practice. Most people aren't happy about filing bankruptcy and we're focused on making the experience a positive one. To achieve that goal, I try my best to return all phone calls and emails within 24 hours and keep the office open until 7:00 p.m. weekdays and until 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays. My staff prides themselves on being responsive to your questions and requests. I make myself available for emergencies when necessary and it's important to know that I don't cut corners in preparing petitions - I do them all myself.


If you're feeling the weight of financial debt and it's stressing you out, call or email today and set up a free consultation. You have nothing to lose and might just find the answers that will help you start enjoying life again.

Would Highly Recommend To Anyone
Orfelia Mayor is that rare combination of integrity and compassion in an attorney. I think she does as much counseling as she gives legal advice. I turned to her during a very difficult time in my life. I could never have imagined that I would ever have to file for bankruptcy. She listened to all of my concerns and fears and put me at ease during our consultations. She is very knowledgable and extremely professional. Her staff is wonderful and you are made to feel that you are part of a family instead of just another case number. I am very grateful to all of them for the way I was treated and the outcome of my case. I highly recommend them to anyone.

So happy I went here
Bankruptcy was a lsat option for me (although now I don't know why it was a "last option") It should have been the first instead of spending all my retirement money. I saw Ms. Mayors reviews on another website and went for the free consultation. What a relief! She explained everything to me with a lot of patience and listened to what I was worried about. Everything went exactly as she said it would and I am not worry free, debt free and already have credit cards again. I got rid of about $50,000 in debt for a SMALL fraction of that amount, THANK YOU!

Filing for bankruptcy can be somewhat complicated and very stressful. You have to be cautious and find an experienced attorney who can be honest, reliable and trustworthy. An attorney who can explain to you the basic of a bankruptcy. Attorney Orfelia Maria Mayor is one of the most excellent Bankruptcy attorney's here is Florida and works above and beyond these criteria’s. Throughout the process, she explained all the necessary steps and documents required and answer all “crucial personal ” questions advising on how to proceed to the best of my interest. Her main concern was to achieve my number one goal of getting out of debt. I am truly blessed to do business with her. Most of all, she is AFFORDABLE…… Thank You attorney Mayor…. You are Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

She battles for her clients
My husband and I visited Ms. Mayor after having gone through a very trying time of unemployment. Ms. Mayor IMMEDIATELY made us feel at ease. She met with us personally and has always handles our questions herself. We had already retained another attorney, but we did not feel comfortable with some of the things he told us. Ms. Mayor clarified our concerns and we had no qualms about bringing our case to her. She is knowledgeable, professional, diligent and caring. She treats her clients with special care. I cannot say enough about this firm. She is our secret weapon...always there to battle on our behalf.

Great Experience
What a blessing to find a lawyer like this in my darkest hour. I was garnished and totally freaked out. At the first consultation I left feeling calmer and knowing that I would stop the garnishment as soon as I got my stuff in. She got me filed within 24 hours to stop them from taking more of my money. Her staff is really great too. I saw another lawyer before her and didn't get the same feeling when I left their office. I'm sorry I wiated so long to do this but glad I found Ms. Mayor.

Great Lawyer
I was referred to Orfelia Mayor by a co-worker who filed for bankruptcy and was extremely satisfied with the results he received. Ms. Mayor is a true professional and is extremely knowledgeable in the field of bankruptcy. I have dealt with alot of attorneys in my career and most of them come with promises that were not kept and alot of dishonesty. Ms Mayor is as "honest" as they come. Ms. Mayors staff is also very helpful and knowledgeable to answer any quick question you may have. You will not feel rushed when you have a consultation with her. You will also leave her office satisfied as your questions will all be answered. I highly recommend her as your only choice for a bankruptcy attorney. Thank you
