About Asaph

Learn Asaph’s areas of practice.

Veteran California State Bar member, Asaph Abrams represents individuals, families and businesses in obtaining federal bankruptcy protection. He has parted ways with the large law firm sector to focus personally on clients in need. He offers sliding-scale rates to make bankruptcy an affordable solution for all San Diegans.

 

Asaph has filed over 750 successful chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcies in San Diego, California and has a superior success rate in confirmation of chapter 13 bankruptcy plans.


Asaph serves on the attorney referral panel of the San Diego County Bar Association and has been co-chaired its Bankruptcy Law Section.  He volunteers and is active in the legal community through the County Bar and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. His volunteer work includes the County Bar's Ask-A-Lawyer Program and he has enjoyed the privilege of moot court judgeship for his alma mater, the University of San Diego. He is a frequent contributor to legal advice sites and engages in public speaking on the topic of bankruptcy, including state-bar approved legal education lectures. His social media presence often presents the lighter side in these stressful times and he prides his office on its distinguished responsiveness and client satisfaction.

 

In the "blog world," Asaph contributes articles of interest to the lay reader designed to inform both the current and prospective bankruptcy petitioner.  He susbscribes to the opinion that an attorney is charged not only with preparing a successful case, but with keeping the client fully informed throughout.  In addition to highlighting and analyzing legal trends (beyond shallow, bland summary), he writes off-topic on a variety of issues, because, hey: attorneys are people too.

 

Clients attest to superior service by the entire staff at the Law Office of Asaph Abrams (it's been a challenge getting through all the holiday gift baskets).  We believe bankruptcy is a sound financial decision designed to improve an individual's or family's welfare.  Yet, it's a legal process that carries some inherent element of stress.  Therefore, we take it upon ourselves to make it pain-free, swift and successful.

Thanks Asaph and Jodi.
Filing Bankruptcy was one of the biggest steps we've ever taken. Asaph and Jodi are so helpful and friendly. They were there every step of the way to help us. They answer all our questions promptly.

Professional, Compassionate and well informed, Best.
Mr. Abrams & his staff made one of the most difficult time of my life much easier. From the initial meeting all the way to my chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge they were professional, compassionate and well informed of all aspects involved in my case and advised me accordingly my questions were answered on the phone or the emails within a few minutes. Very affordable price, great service and professionalism that is what I got from him and his staff. I encourage anyone looking for bankruptcy attorney please do yourself a favor and contact his office.

We are so glad we chose Asaph to represent us
Asaph and his crew are amazing, when we walked into his office for the free consultation I was literally shaking, put aside the fact that we were embarrassed at the situation we got our self into financially we weren’t sure how much information we need to provide him and if we are going to get the honest story. After a few questions Asaph explained to us our options and there was no pressure to make a commitment, on the same day me and my wife decide to give Asaph the lead, the process was easy and each step was explained in simple English and thoroughly, the team was always available and responsive, I was able to deliver all the requested information via e-mail attachment which made my life easy. The phone calls stopped within a few days after we hired Asaph services and we were able to make a new start in about 90 days from the beginning of the process.

Thank you for a job well done.
I recommend Attorney Asaph Abrams and his staff because they worked diligently (a lot of work) that resulted in no questions or issues being brought up during the Creditors meeting. I arrive early and watched others unprepared people during their Creditors meeting, it was painful to watch but when my turn came up it lasted less than ten minutes and without any questions or issues being brought up. Asaph Abrams and his staff answered all my questions (by email and phone) and walk me through this very difficult and painful part of my life. Thank you for a job well done.

Wow, it's all done!
From a Google search to Asaph's site to the recent completion of my BK the process has been professional and painless. Yes, a lot of work on my part to get my paperwork and records together yet I learned valuable lessons about where my money was going. A huge thanks to Melanie and Jodie on Asaphs staff for their knowledge and patience!

HIGHLY recommend!
I absolutely 100% recommend the Law Office of Asaph Abrams for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is a last resort that nobody wants to go through. The prospect of bankruptcy is painful.. on top of the stigma and credit 'ding', you have dates and classes and tons of paperwork. It looks so 'big' when it's staring you down. Enter the Law Offices of Asaph Abrams. Asaph and his staff were absolutely the PERFECT example of knowledgeable, caring, good representation and professionalism. From day one, I was treated in the way one would hope to be treated when they are facing something that big and potentially scary. They (every single person I spoke with in his office) were fully prepared to walk me through every single step proactively with full written instructions and exact, careful explanations. You can really tell they have lots of experience doing this for people. Most of what I did, I was able to do online or via email with them. No taking off work to travel across town for meetings constantly. They were totally affordable and worked with me on getting it paid. Most of all, they took the time to answer every question I had either by email or by phone and were ALWAYS friendly and helpful. I never felt like I was bothering them or was asking a stupid question or that I was 'on the clock'. I have recommended Asaph's practice to others who have ALSO used him and came away with really positive experiences. Choosing an attorney is tough. Once you choose one and pay the money, you're stuck... and I've had really bad attorneys in other matters to compare with. I am SO GLAD I landed on Asaph and I simply cannot say enough positive stuff about the Law Offices of Asaph Abrams.
