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 650 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.
