Outstanding attorney
Mr. Gupta is extremely professional and honest in his approach. Does not sugar coat and gives the optimal results for those who are willing to listen. Our case was family businesses and bankruptcy and very complex. He is also a high quality man in terms of ethics which is a must.

Attention to Detail - Amazing Attorney
When I first contacted AJ he spent what I considered a fair amount of time with me over the phone. No strings. No pressure to hire him. Just an informative conversation. His expertise and confident nature made me feel comfortable and trusting of him. When I hired AJ for legal help he was always available for questions or concerns I had. He and his staff were professional. Extremely knowledgeable and obtained a result I was very happy with. I highly recommend contacting AJ if you need an attorney in San Diego.

Extremely pleased with their service
They were extremely attentive and on top of their game. Made this stressful process as easy as it could possibly be. On the day of the hearing, I noticed that all of the other lawyers were prepping their clients and even had them sign things at the last minute. A few of the lawyers showed up only a couple of minutes before the hearing to handle paperwork. I was prepared and ready to go way before the actual hearing. They were extremely professional and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs a lawyer.

Turned a complex bankrupcy into a simple walk through!
We never thought that we would ever have to file for bankruptcy. Unfortunately, when our small business closed, we were faced with some very tough financial decisions. Deciding to file for bankruptcy can be a complicated and stressful task. We felt that it was very important to select a lawyer that was the “best in the class” and also one that could understand and relate to our situation. We researched and vetted several high rated local San Diego attorneys. Ajay K. Gupta gave us an honest assessment of our situation. He laid out clear and simple options that we had. There was never any pressure and always complete professionalism. We decided to choose Ajay K. Gupta to represent us and he did not disappoint. Ajay K. Gupta and his team specialize in bankruptcy; and they demonstrated that by turning our complex bankruptcy case into a simple walk through. Ajay K. Gupta is a dedicated lawyer with superior work ethics, one who displays a high level of professionalism and sound judgment. All the stress and financial weight has been lifted from our shoulders. Our family can finally move forward. We highly recommend Ajay K. Gupta and the Gupta Legal Center; they are an excellent choice if you are looking for a bankruptcy lawyer to represent you.

Highly recommended!!!!
Highly recommended!!! I was sued for a personal transaction (selling a car). After talking with about 5-6 lawyers from the Hyatt Legal Plan. I chose Gupta Legal Center. Their office is very professional and responsive. They reviewed my case, and I talked their lawyer, Mr. Ajay Gupta, who is very professional, straight forward, speaking at your level, well-connected, honest, and very bright. They set the goal and expectation, and get to work on the case right away. The case was settled prior to trial with minimal hassle/cost and at my expectation The level of stress for the whole process is minimal for me. Being a physician and never involved in a personal litigation, I cannot express how much I am impressed with Mr. Gupta and his group. I highly recommend this law firm. No one wants to be sued, but it happens, this group is your best ally.

Great Lawyer, Trustworthy, Reliable, Kind, Smart.
Ajay is currently working with me on a San Diego HOA/real estate matter that is uniquely challenging, and he and his staff have been remarkable. I highly recommend him for any legal matter you may need help with, particularly those things in which he specializes. I greatly appreciate his ongoing help and guidance. Five stars!

Great, reasonably-priced Bankruptcy attorney!
I was able to speak to Ajay directly on my first phone call to his office. He or April always answered my e-mails same-day. I consulted with a couple of other Bankruptcy attorneys and he was one of the more reasonably priced ones out there. He was very comfortable to talk to and my husband and I felt very confident having him represent us in our case. We would DEFINITELY recommend him to anyone considering bankruptcy.

Ajay got my bankruptcy through without a hitch
Ajay and April were very helpful, informative, directive and patient with my slow action and mental blocks, holding my hand through a painful and difficult process.

High Billing, No Communication
I hired Ajay for less than two months, and was shocked at the $26,000.00 bill. This was not discussed past $4,000.00 paid up front. Never had a discussion with anyone from this office about these charges or what and how a bill was run so high with no discussion or communication regarding that much money. Be aware of who you hire as this was not a choice we would have made. Be careful who you hire to handle personal matters, including your money.
