Best Bankruptcy Attorneys and Affordable
As a Gulf War Veteran that suffers from chronic PTSD and Major Depressive like episodes, Monica at the Ghanooi Law Firm really helped me through the stressful event of filing a Bankruptcy case. The firm was very responsive everytime I emailed a question, and prepared me to address the Trustee's questions, which really helped to relieve my stress! I highly recommend their services, and their fees are affordable. Thanks Again! D. Phillips USMC Veteran

Best Bankruptcy Attorney in LA!
Eliza and Monica were the best attorneys I could have asked for to help me file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I felt at ease the moment I first spoke to them and they were there for me every step of the way from the initial consultation to the official discharge. They were responsive, professional, kind, thorough and so much more. I'd highly recommend Ghanooni Law Firm.

A Million Thanks and A Million More on Top!
Where does one begin when faced with the burden and weight of a large debt burden that needs to be paid? Eliza Ghanooni is the answer when my wife and I were served with a lawsuit for a debt owed for student loans that had been sent to a creditor to collect. After the initial shock and panic of being served we searched for for an attorney to seek council on what to do and how to proceed and Eliza first and foremost was extremely kind, patient and respectful especially to the emotions one can go through once being served. From there Eliza was extremely diligent in her process and left no questions from us unanswered and always kept us apprised from start to finish. It was through all of that that she was able to get the creditor to settle our debt for $30,000 which was more than half the amount owed, and for the creditor to drop the lawsuit and keep us out of litigation. Truly astonishing and to have the weight of this burden lifted is an unbelievable feeling, and it’s all due to Eliza’s hard work, tactics and reassurance that guided us through this process. In the end, words truly can’t express how grateful we are for Eliza, and she couldn’t get any more of a glowing review and recommendation from us, and if you need help with your debt settlement issues, Eliza is the first person you should call, hands down!

Being in overwhelming debt and filing for bankruptcy is a difficult, scary thing. Eliza and the Ghanooni Firm made a hard situation that much easier. Extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and always there to answer any questions or concerns I had and walk me through my options. Cannot recommend highly enough.

She's knowledgable, easy to talk to, and helps guide you through all your available options. I was 100% satisfied and highly recommend getting in touch.

Best Attorney!
I contacted Ghanooni Law Firm for a relative who had lost his business and found himself in a large amount of debt. Eliza's deep knowledge of the law and her empathetic and calm demeanor were exactly what we needed to help my relative get out of debt quickly and move on with his life. We are forever grateful to Eliza and her team!

hands down, the best
Hands down, the most incredible, awesome, amazing Firm. I had reached a point where I was drowning in debt and it was too much for me. I had no hope in sight and felt like I was drowning every day. I contacted the Ghanooni Law Firm and I was hopeful after my first phone call with Eliza. From my first phone call to my discharge, Eliza and Monica guided me step by step through the bankruptcy process with professionalism and care. I am eternally grateful. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

future restored
I hired the Ghanooni law firm to handle my personal bankruptcy. Like most people in my situation, I had reached a point where my debt was causing me day-to-day struggles. Little or no financial future seemed to lie ahead. I could not have asked for a more professional and caring law firm to see me through this process. I worked mostly with Monica on my case, though did also speak with Eliza a couple times. The process went smoothly and I received my discharge a few months ago. Obviously, no one really wants to go through bankruptcy. But I already know that I will look back at this as the time that I got my future back. An immediate effect I have noticed, other than just being able to survive financially and having my hope restored, is that my overall credit-worthiness (and score) is in much better shape now than before. I have certainly learned some lessons and am being very careful with expenses and debt now. More on the horizon, I am now planning to go to graduate school. I am excited by this prospect, and know that it would not likely be possible had I not sought Monica and Eliza's help when I did.

Ghanooni Law Firm
After a failed attempt to help my brother with his business, due to illness/injury, and then Covid to boot, the business fell into financial demise. Unfortunately I leveraged using my personal credit to fund the business. Fast forward....I was referred to Ms Ghanooni. Ms Ghanooni and Ms Bedia helped me through this very difficult time and because of their expertise, they helped make the process less intimidating.

Excellent service!!!
Eliza and her team are fabulous! I found her here on Yelp and saw she had great reviews so I decided to call her. She answers the phone right away and if she’s with another client she gets back to you very fast. She also deals with you personally and doesn’t have one of her team members take over for her. I was served a lawsuit from a collections agency from an old credit card I had forgotten about. Needless to say I was freaked out. She calmed me down right away and we were able to settle everything the same day. If you’re ever in that situation and don’t have the money she is wonderful at negotiating the amount you owe to bring it down and set up a comfortable payment plan that works for you. I hope I’m never in this situation again but if I I am I will 100% use her and only her! By the way, this was nearly 3 years ago. Yesterday I had a question about another account I had missed when I hired her and gave her a call for clarification. Again, she answered right away and remembered me and was able to pull up my file in seconds and answer all my questions. Fabulous job Eliza!!!!! Thank you!!!

Best in the Business
I can't recommend Eliza and the Ghanooni Law firm high enough. They work miracles in helping anyone with any debt issues. Eliza is not only super knowledge on all legal issues, she is also very good at negotiating with creditors to settling any outstanding debts. On top of all that, she is a consummate professional that goes out of her way to keep the client up to date on all developments.

Best Law Firm
No one ever wants to be in the position they are in when you need to contact a firm such as Ghanooni Law Firm. But if you are, please know you will be so incredibly well cared for here. Both Eliza and Monica are so kind, thoughtful, prompt, and above all have your best interests in mind. I was so nervous, anxious, and worried about the bankruptcy process. They both helped put my mind at ease, guided me through the process, answered every question, and have looked after my case with great professionalism and care. This feeling I now have on the other side of the worry and anxiousness is so worth it after working together with Eliza and Monica. Take the step forward and know you are in great hands with their attention to detail and great advice!
