Beyond grateful!
When in financial dilemma and where to even begin is stressing your everyday life and you find someone that takes the time and shows you compassion, that is priceless. Your professionalism, knowledge, and commitment to my case were evident throughout, and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone facing similar circumstances. To say you went above and beyond would not explain how grateful I am Greg. Thank you once again for your assistance during this challenging time. Your support made a significant difference in my life, and I am truly grateful for your dedication to my case.

Understanding
If anyone understands the unpleasant pressure and predicament of such situations as these...it would be Greg Shanfeld himself! Could it be the years of his experiences and his professional staff or maybe his direct communication to answer any and all of your questions and concerns. I couldn't be more happier of his representation. On top of every subject no matter the difficulty. 100% pure satisfaction.

The Best Decision
It’s hard enough realizing you need to file bankruptcy but then you’re matched with finding an attorney who will actually treat you as an individual and not another number in the books! I found Greg through my Google search online. I read through the reviews and I decided to give it a go with a consultation. After I filled out the form, no more than 15 minutes later, I received a call from Greg. Now, in my experience, I’m use to getting a call to schedule an appointment and that would be that. So a call from Greg personally was a great first impression. He was very thorough with the entire process up front and answered my questions. I was assured by the end of the call, I’d chosen the best attorney for me. During the process I was kept well informed by Greg. If I had any questions he was available by email and telephone but to be honest, he was so thorough in his process, I hardly had any questions! Everything was straight forward! I am extremely pleased with the services offered and even more pleased that my bankruptcy has been discharged. I’d 10/10 recommend Greg Shanfeld @ Wadhwani & Shanfeld.

Choosing The Right Law Firm
I decided to hire this law firm after reading reviews and speaking with Greg. Choosing the right lawyer to handle your case is so important. After making a bad decision previously with another law office, I contacted this office and the staff were professional, my confidence in this firm is outstanding. If you want a law firm that will take care of business and see you through your dilemma, give this law office a try. I am very satisfied with their service and will never forget the kindness of the people who work at this law firm.

Best decision
In November 2021 I was looking for an attorney to file bankruptcy after losing my job. I googled attorneys within my area and thank god I found Greg. I was thinking about calling other places but I went ahead and gave Greg a call ( I saw all his reviews and noticed he had 5 stars but I wanted to make sure my self if he was able to help me) not knowing anything about the process he was very clear and honest about how it works to file bankruptcy. After talking to him I felt relieved and sent out all the information and documents needed. I was super afraid at first but the way he works very professional and confident made me take the decision of the process. He’s and excellent attorney and I’m thankful for what he and his team did about my case. I will definitely recommend him. Thank you

I was super worried about going through the bankruptcy process, but Greg and the other staff put me at ease. They explained each step thoroughly and answered any questions I had. They all made me feel comfortable and less anxious about the whole process. They walked me through each step and made everything less painful. I would definitely recommend them.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND GREG! DON'T GO ANYWHERE OR WITH ANYONE ELSE!
I was going to write an elaborate review but honestly, the one thing that I think about when I think about Wadhwani & Shanfeld is just how awesome they are, both on the individual and firm level. I submitted a request for information regarding bankruptcy and Greg Shanfeld reached out to me via phone immediately, probably not even an hour or two after my request was submitted. It wasn’t until I spoke with Greg that, for the first time in years, I felt that there was a way out of my debt. Let’s face it, nobody wants to declare bankruptcy. Realizing that you have to consider bankruptcy as an option sucks, it truly does. Just like any major thing in life, you live and you learn. The greatest thing about speaking to Greg about my situation was that he not only was able to put into words what I was feeling (that I was essentially living to pay the cards), but he also didn’t judge me. Throughout our phone conversation, Greg took the details that I provided him about my specific situation and used them to give me more information about my options and what the entire bankruptcy process would be life. Greg was extremely articulate, answered all of my questions, and simplified the entire bankruptcy process to make sure that I understood what was going to happen next and in the future. Perhaps the greatest thing that I picked up in my initial conversation with Greg is that he truly does want to help. He understands not only the legal aspect of the bankruptcy process, but the emotional one as well. People going through the bankruptcy process are anxious, scared, etc., and Greg gets that. He truly wants to help his clients gain a new slate and that’s exactly what he did for me. From start to finish, my bankruptcy process took 5 months. The fees were extremely reasonable and Greg allows for it to be made in payments (though I’d advise to pay it off ASAP). 5 months for a clean slate and lessons learned, sign me up. Complimenting Greg is his partner and the firm’s staff. When Greg wasn’t available, his partner Raj Wadhwani gladly saw me, answered my questions, and picked up where Greg left off. Jocelyn, the firm’s legal assistant, was amazing in her communication and in answering both misc. and specific questions regarding the bankruptcy process. When my questions were complicated and best explained via phone, she didn’t hesitate to give me a call. All in all, I HIGHLY recommend Wadhwani & Shanfeld to anybody that is looking to go through the bankruptcy process, or even just has questions regarding the process. Their professionalism, knowledge, and empathy is UNMATCHED.

Greg Shanfeld...AKA OUR SUPER HERO!!!
I have filed bankruptcy 3 times now. I know, ridiculous! The first time was a chapter 7 and was done after my husband and I both lost our jobs. It was with an attorney who was “OK”, he got the job done. The second time was a chapter 13 with an attorney who didn’t know what the heck he was doing so it got dismissed. And the third time, this time was with the most incredible attorney on the face of this planet... Greg Shanfeld. I needed to file a 13 because I was looking to strip my 2nd mortgage. The chances of the judge ruling in my favor was slim because the value of my home was climbing. Greg is confident, knowledgeable, caring and super efficient. He called me on a Sunday afternoon as a follow up to my internet inquiry. He even left his cell phone number. You can be sure I spoke with MANY attorneys to get the job done this 3rd time around, especially because the previous 13 was dismissed due to the attorney being a knucklehead. I could spot an outstanding attorney from a mile away. Greg returned/took my calls promptly, he was kind and didn’t make me feel like a big fat loser, he listened intently and always offered a solution. My case was tough, not only was my value throwing a wrench into the BK, my income was also challenging. I’d also like to point out that many other attorneys I spoke to were so negative. Greg’s positive attitude was a breathe of fresh air that filled me with new found hope. I am beyond grateful to Greg for his expertise and kind attitude. We just found out a few weeks ago that the judge ruled in our favor to strip the lien. Of course he did!!! We have the best attorney representing us!!!! Thank you Greg from the bottom of my heart for taking good care of your clients. May God bless you all the days of your life!!!!

Greg and his firm are amazing!!
We hired Greg and his firm to help us with our bankruptcy cases. He ended up helping both myself and my father file. It seems so scary when you first consider filing for bankruptcy and you’re so stressed and we at lest felt like we were at the end of our rope. Greg just stepped right up and took over. He was very professional, and patient. His associates Jocylyn and Shelby were bit awesome. We had a few hitches along the way with other creditors and Greg and his team just handled every curve with grace. I highly recommend him and his firm. They are fantastic. We will be eternally grateful for his help in saving our financial future.

Mr and Mrs K
My wife and I want to thank Greg and everyone at Wadhwani & Shanfeld for saving us after having had our bank accounts seized, paychecks garnished by 25% and liens put on our home. When I met with Greg he explained all of our options and what the possible outcomes for each option would be. After we carefully decided on the best course of action he and his staff handled all the necessary information requests, filings and court deadlines with perfection. He and his team's work on our case was so outstanding it is beyond description. Especially when the Trustee suddenly wanted to increase our base amount owed, extend our payment plan by 16 months and raise our plan payment to an amount that we never could have handled. Because of a successful motion we went from this threat of additional hardship from the payment increase and extra payments lengthing our plan to having most of the remaining debt removed from our case and the payment staying the same. Because of the old debt removal motion the number of payments remaining was shortened so our case was recently discharged about a year earlier than scheduled. All of the success we had from the start of our bk to the shortening of the plan and early discharge was because of Greg and everyone there. We highly recommend his firm for anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation. William and Kristen K.
