Excellent Attorney!
I have referred many clients to Mr. Resnik. He is one of the best in his field. Mr. Resnik has been able to help many of my clients through very difficult bankruptcy issues.

Fantastic Attorney
Attorney Matthew Resnik is one of the best bankruptcy attorneys in Los Angeles. Maybe even the state of CA. He is smart, funny and honest. He exceeds all expectations. He helped us save our home and get rid of old debt that was lingering for YEARS! I can have a fresh start thanks to him. That itself is priceless. I cannot recommend Mr. Resnik enough!

Great Advice!
I was recommended to Matthew from a friend who was a previous client of his. I did not know if I needed a bankruptcy but in this current climate of uncertainty I thought it would be best to weigh my options. I consulted with Matthew and he was very helpful, nice and thorough. We thought it would be best to wait on filing a bankruptcy due to my unique situation. I consulted with other attorneys and I felt they were pushing me to file. I did not feel that way here. I will definitely come back to Matthew when it's time to file my bankruptcy.

I wish I'd met him 5 years ago
Matt was brave enough to take on my bankruptcy filing a few days before a really criminal servicer in Ft Worth Texas was going to sell it "behind the courthouse steps." Re-applying for loan mods had become a way of life and I had no plan in place for this catastrophe. I flailed for 5 of the 6 weeks' notice I got from the really criminal servicer (rcs) in Ft. Worth. The days flew by while I did too much research and not enough planning. The house was to be sold on a Tuesday, and his firm started working with on Friday. That gave them two days to get the filing prepared and submitted, and they did. As another reviewer said, Mr. Resnik is smart and funny. I've had dealings with two other lawyers during my multi-year loan mod ordeal, and both of them were more like bank tellers behind thick plexiglas, with me handing over papers and money and waiting to see what would happen. Matt spent almost two hours with me for my first appointment, during which he got a good sense of my assets and liabilities, so that he could determine the best way to preserve what was worth preserving, and make sure I agreed. Since then, a very competent newer attorney has been assigned to me and I have worked a lot with two paralegals who know they are doing. If I forget to send a document, they remind me, and that's the difference between success and failure when time is of the essence. Matt has remained in touch, even though I'm not working directly with him, and just helped me weather a parallel crisis that required finding and hiring attorney to pursue a claim against a real estate agent--on very short notice when a clock was ticking. All-in-all I don't think I could have done much better. I don't know how the bankruptcy will go because there are other players involved, but at least I know it matters to someone other than me.
