Almassian Cuts through Cornerstone University Professors’ Rhetoric and Pomposity!
Todd Almassian and his legal team helped me survive the malicious harassment incited by my family in 2016. After thirty years of being the sole financial provider of a family of six, my family plundered the house and moved out in early January while I was at work. Aided by their pro bono, so-called Christian attorney, my family sued me for over a million dollars, filed false criminal charges against me, and bombarded me with frivolous legal challenges. Todd helped me understand the difference between me as a generous giver taking care of my family and my self-absorbed family taking advantage of me. Todd Almassian worked with my family law attorney as well as my family’s attorneys to address the destructive behavior of my family. At my request, Todd participated in the family court mediation to explain the interactions between family and bankruptcy law. Todd helped me squelch my family’s bullying attempt to sabotage my bankruptcy filing. Todd led another mediation outside of family court to address the stalemate I faced due to my family’s arrogance, deception, and continuous delay tactics to thwart the legal process. After eight months of litigation, Todd guided me to successfully negotiate a settlement that both the family and bankruptcy courts would approve. I highly recommend Todd Almassian for dealing with difficult bankruptcy cases.

Chapter 13
Todd Almassian represented me in my Chapter 13 bankruptcy. He was available for questions, answered them clearly, and made the process as painless as possible. I would recommend him to others needing his services.

Excellent Experience
Todd recently helped me work through a very complex bankruptcy involving a small business, property and personal assets. I had interviewed several potential lawyers before finally deciding to hire Keller and Almassian. Todd and his staff definitely have a strong understanding of all facets of bankruptcy law, which I believe ultimately saved me a considerable amount of money when the case was finally settled. My options were clearly laid out every step of the way. I would recommend Keller and Almassian to anyone looking for a great law firm!

Todd Almassian Review
Todd represented me with excellence, deftly guiding me through a lengthy and rather complex bankruptcy filing. His engagement was thorough, and he fully explained the process along the way as various issues arose. I have no complaints. I would recommend him to anyone with similar legal needs without reservation, and would not hesitate to work with him and indeed his entire firm for any future legal needs.

A long and valued relationship
Keller-Almassian has been my counsel for over 15 years. They have represented me and my partners in four cases--all involving collecting from customers, and two involving customers in bankruptcies. I keep coming back because they provide good, cost effective counsel on what to do in the courts and outside of the courts to achieve your best results. They are professionals and respected by their peers and customers. They are among the best law firms in the area of bankruptcies.

Excellent Firm to Deal with
We were referred to the Keller & Almassian Attorney law firm by another attorney. We experienced a very difficult bankruptcy case as a creditor. We are a small company and this case has been very devastating to our business until we met Keller & Almassian Attorneys. They continued meeting with the debtor counsel until they reached a favorable settlement on our behalf. With out their expertise and professionalism this case may have put our small company into bankruptcy. They are very skilled and thorough not only understanding the bankruptcy laws , they have tremendous creditability with other law firms as well as the court system. Jim and Todd - Thanks for all done and please feel free to use us as a reference at anytime.

Bankruptcy and more
We faced a complex bankruptcy in 2014 after a 6 figure job loss. Todd thoroughly evaluated our situation and went through every option with us. We ultimately ended up with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. He is a straight shooter, and helped us through a situation we had no idea how to navigate on our own. He negotiated on our behalf with lenders and helped make the best of it. He is extremely professional, yet approachable. He doesn't sugar coat the options (they were all pretty bad), but after dealing with him and his assistant Nicole, we quickly learned to trust him when he told us something needs to be done a certain way. It took nearly a year to close out the entire case and we are so relieved we hired Todd. I highly recommend Todd Almassian for any personal or business issue with creditors.

Client
Mr. Almassian is my enabler and benefactor. He negotiated my filing with the utmost skill and consideration. His reputation preceded him in dealing with the other attorneys with the result that he controlled the results most admirably. I consider him to be the absolute best practitioner possible.

Puts Your Mind at Ease
All I can say is, wow! I was very impressed with Todd. I went to see him today with some concerns I had about asset protection. In 15 minutes time, he gave me the peace of mind that I needed. I would hire him for any casework. He has a relaxed "bedside manner" that I am certain serves both him well and his clients well. Thank you for your attention to my concerns, Todd.
