FILE FOR $0 DOWN PAYMENT. PAY $125 EVERY TWO WEEKS LATER.
I am married and have a wonderful son who I spend much of my time with. In my work life I am the President of the Tucson Association of Bankruptcy Attorneys.
 
I litigated a case of first impression in Arizona which created new case law in favor of debtors who possess an inherited IRA. Bankruptcy law is 99% of my practice. I personally handle every case from start to finish so I produce high quality work and  provide very good service.

Successful bankruptcy lawyer
I've had a wonderful experience with Stephen. The best part was I really didn't have to do much work! Literally I just needed all my documents and made sure I made my payments and show up for the first hearing and that's it! He's very easy going and does everything else as long as you do your part of the work. He communicates 100% and even his office later Melissa as well. Highly recommended 5 stars 10/10

Definitely Recommend
Stephen has the expertise of AZ bankruptcy law and years of litigation that I was looking for. This was evident in the first conversation/consultation with him. My case was fairly involved and he clearly explained each step of the process, what I needed to do, and promptly addressed my concerns along the way. He thoroughly prepared the bankruptcy paperwork and provided proper documentation to the court. This resulted in a smooth process with the trustee and a favorable end result. Thank you Stephen for your help and patience during this difficult time in my life.

Very pleased
I wasn't the easiest first consultation. I'd done plenty of research and consulted with others (lawyers, paralegals, people who filed solo etc.) I felt impressed by the time Stephen gave to me. I request information late Friday. Anticipating a response later that week. He called me 1st thing Sat (professional hour 8 or 9 am). He immediately asked the important questions versus building a report...which was exactly what I wanted. Due to his quick non fluffed answers (direct) I was influenced. There was no 0 down advertising that was later revoked. He gave me the information and tools to help myself. Even said he believed I was smart enough to do on my own. I think it's remarkable to still have a relationship with integrity especially when finances are involved. Great lawyer. I WAS not bothered about paperwork or calls. It was amazing experience to use Stephen Trezza law office.

Patient, Knowledgeable. Quick to Respond, and Dependable
Mr. Trezza and his team were very helpful to us throughout our bankruptcy process. Laura was kind enough to personally set time aside to walk us through a lot of the documentation we had trouble understanding. This was our first time filing for bankruptcy, so we lacked a lot of experience and knowledge about the process, but the team was always quick and patient when answering all of our questions. And we had a LOT of questions. Mr. Trezza showed clear knowledge and experience of the process, and gave us proper advice when we were unsure of what to do. I would recommend this attorney to anyone considering filing for bankruptcy. The consultation is also free, so it is definitely worth giving them a call.

Exceptional Attorney!
My experience with Mr. Trezza has been very good. He knows the law and helped explain my options. The best thing about working with him personally is he is a straight shooter and made me feel comfortable and he actually cared about me personally and getting me through a very difficult process. His office was responsive and they are very organized.

Great experience
We hired Steve Trezza to help us with our bankruptcy. He and his staff were very professional and responsive. Melissa was awesome and always quick to take care of our questions or issues. It made our experience with bankruptcy much more palatable. His knowledge of bankruptcy laws was very helpful. He offers payment plans and was reasonably priced. Our case wasn’t very complicated but he still got it done in 4 months. We highly recommend Steve and his staff.
