About me

Since 1999, I have practiced exclusively in the areas of consumer and small business bankruptcy and other debt related law.

During this time, every work day was devoted to helping families and small businesses get back on their feet. My clients come to me in extraordinary pain and leave with a strong sense of relief due to my personal attention to their situation and understanding of their needs. 

At my firm, your legal questions will be answered only by an attorney. You deserve an attorney's help with your struggles and each case gets an attorney's full and personal attention.

We can teach you how to get the bill collectors off your back and how to fix your credit on your own. If you are struggling financially in any way, give us a call for a consultation, even if you think you are not yet ready to hire a lawyer.

  • Andrew Daniel Weisblatt

    I have worked with Adam Schachter for more than a decade. In that time I have been consistently impressed with his superior knowledge of the law as well as his absolutely unparalleled customer service. Adam is consistently available to his clients, returns phone calls promptly, and makes sure that his clients know what is happening every step of the way. If you are looking for a bankruptcy attorney, you will not find one better at bankruptcy nor more caring than Adam.
