About Herman

Learn Herman’s areas of practice.

Practice areas

I've been practicing bankruptcy for over 40 years and Board Certified in both Consumer and Business Bankruptcy Law for over 30 years.  I'm AV rated (the highest possible) by Martindale Hubble, the national legal rating firm.  I've also been named as one of the Best Bankruptcy Lawyers in Dallas by D Magazine.

I'm not a mass filer -- don't want to be. I take a limited number of cases so I can handle each case personally and give it the time and attention that it deserves.  My clients deal with me directly.  In fact, when they call, I'm probably the one that answers the phone. 

Over the years, I have represented debtors and creditors, large and small.  However, I take particular satisfaction in representing the little guy or small business where I can really make a difference in my client's quality of life.

If you have any questions about whether I can help you, give me a call or send me an email.  There is no charge for such a consultation as long as you understand that the advice is worth what you just paid for it.  You may also visit my website.

Grizzled veteran knows his stuff
As you can tell from his beard and suspenders, Hal knows the ins and outs of bankruptcy laws. Having been on the other side, he has a good reputation for getting the job done in an honorable manner. If you are a debtor, especially a business debtor, consult him.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Lusky is professional, knowledgeable, honest and patient. He has been a bankruptcy attorney for many years. He handles your case himself from the first consultation through the discharge. He has written handouts that guide you through the process and keep you from making mistakes. He is always available phone and email to answer questions and concerns and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend him.

Great Attorney
Mr. Lusky was wonderful to work with. He was very informative about my legal process and was so thorough in the steps and made it very easy for me to move through the whole process. The fee charged was very reasonable and he put me at ease at my hearing.

Confident, Comfortable, Compassionate
I gratefully give Lusky & Associates the highest recommendation for services rendered in my case. From the first personable phone conversation, my concerns were put to rest as Mr. Lusky calmly assured me that he would help "make the problem go away". His decades of experience and myriad connections in the legal community easily backed up that claim. I had to do my homework diligently and honestly, but after several conversations and a couple of meetings, Lusky & Associates swiftly took action and my "special" case was concluded with the desired result. Who can say legal work is enjoyable? After working with Herman, I can!

Exceeded Expectations
From my consultation to the discharge of my case, Mr. Lusky superseded my expectations. He is patient, thorough and will explore ever avenue to satisfy your case. He is a man of integrity, kept me updated, made me feel at ease about the process and helped me meet the goals of my case until the end. I would highly recommend Mr. Lusky and would choose him again if I had to do it all over again.

I was a client of Mr Lusky and he helped me file for bankruptcy. He is very knowledgeable and can always be reached via text even during non-business hours. I highly recommend him.
Posted by Ken | March 17, 2014
GREAT at what he does.
Hal was in my corner, not once but twice. Always a phone call away. Made a bad situation very bearable. He is very knowledgeable, and very respected by his peers. It has been my pleasure to recommend him on occasion, and those that have taken my advice thanked me for the referral.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy Attorney | Dec 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Why? Because as a person filing bankruptcy , you don't know what type of attorney you are meeting with usually if no background checks. This attorney provides accurate and detailed answers to Avvo debtors..which shows he has the knowledge and expertise to provide you accurate information. All of us attorneys know attorneys we would never refer a family member to and others who we would refer them to. You should want this type of attorney so you know you are taken care of. I suggest you discuss your case with him first; you can always obtain a second opinion but I am confident you wont want to. You can learn your options with him, which one to take and why, and who to pay between now and then. His answers demonstrate his knowledge of the law. For those reasons, I endorse him!"
Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Mar 01

"Hal is an excellent bankruptcy lawyer. He is a creative, highly knowledgeable, smart, and ethical practitioner who cares deeply about his clients."
