About me

I am the founder of Glanzer & Associates, P.C.  I've been licensed to practice law in Illinois since 1992, and have worked for some of Chicago's largest bankruptcy firms. My practice is devoted to representing clients in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases as well as student loan issues. I represent my clients with a high level of sensitivity and professionalism, and have discharged millions of dollars of debt for my clients. My committment to helping people in financial distress not only involves relieving people of their financial burdens, but also counseling them about life after bankruptcy and rebuilding their credit.

    Charlie has superior knowledge of the bankruptcy code and excellent analytical skills which have benefitted his clients greatly. He is able to process information quickly and formulate an effective strategy for each case. He is very personable and easily gains the trust of clients and other attorneys with whom he works. When someone contacts me with a bankruptcy question I refer them to Charlie exclusively.
