When I first met with Jesse I felt that I was in good hands. However, after a couple of months, not so much. I filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy and first received a notice from the court that my fee had not been paid even though I had paid it to Jesse's office in cash. The office manager told me they delayed paying it because they were getting a new credit card for the office and were waiting for it. Then the day before my creditors meeting, I receive an email that my attorney isn't going to be there but another attorney, who did not even work in their office, who I had never met or spoken to before. Then this substitute attorney shows up 1/2 late for my hearing making me wait. Then the trustee seems to not have gotten all of my paperwork that I had dropped off a week ago at the office. This is not how you treat clients if you want them to recommend people to you.

We hired Jesse to help us file Chapter 13. The staff made this much easier, and they covered everything. Chapter 13 is a complicated, long process. Going it alone isn't possible.
Over the past five years, Jesse, and his staff, have answered many emails and phone calls. He stopped all creditor harassment immediately, and proved to be valuable over the duration of our Chapter 13 payment plan, that lasted five years.
We just received our discharge papers, and plan to have Jesse go over our entire credit report to fix any potential problems.

Mr. Berkowitz represented my son and we were extremely pleased with how he handles everything. He kept in constant contact with us, keeping us updated on any new information. He was very professional at all times and I would always hire him again for any situation.

I endorse this lawyer. Jesse is an excellent lawyer. He is readily available to all clients and is very knowledgable about the law. He holds his clients hands through the legal process and yields his clients great results.
