About me

Linda S. McAleer, Esq. had a career in publishing before obtaining her law degree. Upon graduating law school Linda practiced civil litigation and intellectual property law. However, as many first year attorneys can attest, the long hours and lack of pay created undue personal hardships similar to many of her current clients. At that time, Linda decided that she would use her education to help people and give back to the community. By taking a direct, one on one approach with people, Linda has helped provide a fresh start to countless families that have become her clients.

Linda’s approach to her business is the same as her approach to life. She believes that by being honest in all things and giving people the information they need to make informed decisions, she will build a relationship based on trust. She has been so moved by the desire to lighten people’s burdens that even though she is running a successful firm with associate attorneys under her guidance, a proud San Diego bankruptcy attorney, she still takes the time to sit with each and every one of her firm’s potential clients to make sure they are receiving the best legal advice possible.
