Happy Client in El Segundo
After being referred to a different attorney through a co-worker who wanted DOUBLE the fees that Mr. Brennan was asking, I remembered the Los Angeles County Bar Association website- not only did the original attorney NOT come up on their website, but I was emailed Mr. Brennan's info within a day, and he was in contact with me almost immediately after that. Bankruptcy is not something to enter into lightly, and I had reservations in doing so, but had no choice after some 'hard knocks' in the last 5 years. Mr. Brennan was unequivocally a 'Godsend' to me. He was professional, yet kind, set my mind at ease each time I had yet another question for him. I remember telling him it seems almost too simple, but that things can happen to people that are beyond their control- his response? "Yes, and why beat people up for it?" Awesome! Knowledgeable lawyer, nice man! If I ever have a family member or friend in need of a bankruptcy lawyer, they will be sent straight to this man!!

Clients in Playa del Rey
The bankruptcy was a difficult decision for us, and we are so appreciative for Mr. Brennan's excellent work and treating us with respect. We selected him based on his bio/schooling/credentials/clients' reviews and our first phone conversation. He was very patient and professional. putting us at ease from our very first meeting. He answered all of our questions and kept us informed throughout. Mr. Brennan was well-prepared and made sure we were, also. He was an excellent, professional representative at our hearing.

Carson CA Client
My family hired Kirk Brennan after an initial interview we had with him about the services he offered. Prior to this my family was convinced that we would need to file a Chapter 13, yet after we discussed our entire situation and what our family wanted as a result; Mr. Brennan explained thoroughly that a better option was available. Mr. Brennan patiently and professionally communicated with my family about alternative benefits of our case that took away the stress and anxiety of our situation. He knew the California laws well and gave a wealth of knowledge far before we even committed to hiring him! I knew that someone with the patience and respect shown at that meeting would be of Great service for my family. Kirk Brennan guided us through each step of our case, was always available and responsive, helpful when things didn't make sense to us, and was an overall Champion for our case. His services were invaluable!!!

Kirk is very personable, patient, compassionate, trustworthy, and thorough. Prior to filing our claim - Kirk was easy to work with, patient with me when I was in error on a certain matter. After the paperwork process & meeting of creditors - I was amazed on how short our meeting was - all because of Kirk's thorough work. Some other people who met prior to our meeting experienced a great deal of difficulty (making us a bit nervous) because their lawyers weren't as thorough.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Misleading & Incorrect Information Lacked Competency
This atty was retained and trusted to act on my behalf in providing information to me in order to make the best informed decisions regarding my ch13 as well as help me determine which would be best between a ch7 & ch13. My school loans could have been discharged if he'd have sought that on my behalf. He quit a third of the way through the plan and charged me for extreme expenses. For what little information he provided, a ch 7 would have sufficed and been less expensive; yet he chose to suggest the ch13 causing additional years of stress and money to be paid that could have resulted in my failing to complete the plan. He consistently provided erroneous information. I would not recommend this attorney as he is not as well versed in bankruptcy law as he should be.
