Bankruptcy Attorney
Quality. Concise. Affordable. & Professional. When one of my loved ones was undergoing significant financial stress, Min Gyu Kim provided professional, compassionate legal aid. Not only is the man fluent in Korean (although he does prefer English), but Mr. Kim has done me a great service by reducing the amount of paperwork we had to complete without even having to visit his office in-person. All we had to do was speak on a few occasions, sign a sheet here and there, and go on with our daily lives. Without Mr. Kim's legal aid, it is HIGHLY doubtful that the bankruptcy case would have gone as smoothly. I endorse Min Gyu Kim's services for English and Korean speakers alike, as well as any other clientele in need for bankruptcy and financial distress.

Makes this process so easy
I contacted Peter initially only wanting information on the bankruptcy process and the setbacks associated with it. After he explained everything to me in detail I decided to file. Since I filed it feels as though a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. He contacts me regularly and explains everything to me every step of the way. He is very knowledgeable about the process and what I should expect. I have already started to see my credit score going up and that is one of the most important things to me now.

Took time to review all my options. Honest attorney
Met Mr kim. He took time to review my fianances and my options. He made my decision of going forward with my bankruptcy a lot easier. I struggled through the years to get caught up and pay off my debts but it seems like my debt just never went away. I appreciate the fact that Mr.kim took his time and explained to me in a way that it made sense.

Smart and responsive
I met Pete to discuss my options for bankruptcy. He didn't pull any punches in explaining to me what the bankruptcy will do and won't do. I've met with other attorney before but didn't get this level of explanation. Also I actually met him and not his assistant like other places. I hired Pete for my chp7 and everything is looking good so far. Thanks Pete

Makes time for his clients
My hours are crazy because I'm a trucker but Mr. Kim met me early in the morning before office hours to get my case filed. He takes time to explain everything I was concerned about and makes himself available whenever I do call. I just started about a month ago but everything is going smoothly.

Very specific and answer all our questions
Unfortunately I'm filing a bankruptcy but the Harvey flood really set me back on my mortgage and other debts. Min or Peter as he goes by, met me and my husband and talked to us about our options and was very patient with us as we went over all the question we had. We probably spent about 2 hours at his office discussing our concerns. We are meeting Peter this weekend to file our chp13 case. He made us feel reassured with our decision and going forward we feel confident that we will successfully finish our case.

Best decision
I never thought i would file a bankruptcy but stuff happens. Mr. Kim met me on short notice and he explained to me what a bankruptcy was all about. He made me feel ok with the fact that I had to do this. I had to get my car out of repo and he was able to get it out in less then 24 hours. He kept me updated very quick and if I had any concerns he always made time to talk to me. Thank you Mr. Kim

Very affordable and great attorney
Mr. Kim met me on short notice due to my car being repossessed. I was low on cash but Mr Kim was willing to work with me on the cost so I could get my case filed as soon as possible so I could get my car back. I think in less then2 days he got the car back for me. I've been in this chp13 bankruptcy for about 2months now and everything is going great.
