Great Service!
I never imagined this process would run so smoothly! I expected to be intimidated by the process which is why I waited so long. John A. Steinberger was kind, professional and truly knowledgeable. I can't say enough about how outgoing & professional Claire & Kim are. They were consistent, fast and helpful. I would recommend this guy and his staff over and over again. Thank You for making this process painless!

Very Competent, stopped all pending negative litigation and Appropriately Filed Approved Chapter 7
All pending garnishment orders, and default judgements were stopped and or set aside. Efficiently filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case after advising the benefits of both types. Appreciated the time and support provided during the process. Fees were not overstated.

Great service
After internally wrestling with myself over filing bankruptcy for a year I finally contacted Steinberger & Associates. I didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised at the professionalism of the staff. Everyone I spoke with was knowledgeable and kind. I definitely recommend this firm.

The firm is cool. Noel and especially Heather are da bomb. Heather is on her knowledge, she’s nice sincere, gives motivation and support through difficult times. Some days I didn’t know what to do, but a little motivation helps. We need more people in the world like Heather. My overall experience was good with the firm.

Con artist
I will lose my house, car, and livelihood because of John Steinberg. I filed bankruptcy 4 months ago and never received a dime of garnishments back to me. I absolutely do not recommend this establishment to anyone who is trying to get a second chance in financial stability. They will take you for everything you have and leave you with nothing. They do not have your best financial interest and absolutely disgusting place to do business. Starting with the receptionist to the bankruptcy lawyers in the back taking people's hard earned dollars. they want you to suffer and do everything they're supposed to do like get your refund back and communicate it well enough to where you don't have to jump through hoops to get your hard earned money back. If i could go back I would've never hired John Steinberg as my bankruptcy attorney!!! extremely unsatisfied and unhappy with they're service all the way around.

Not happy so far
Attorney Noel was amazing on my consultation. After that, my case was turned over to the support staff. I don't like the way they speak to me or how their system for uploading documents. Also, mistakes and missteps have been made. I'm more than half way done and I am truly scared this is not going to work out well for me. It costs quite a bit of money, more than I initially thought but when you are going up against a big sleepy corporation who's threatening a lawsuit...you do everything you can to get the right attorney.
