My wife and went from making over $100,000 a year to literally making zero! We were facing a huge lawsuit from the bank that had the loan on our income property, facing foreclosure and needed to file for bankruptcy. Lazaro knew every aspect of what we were going through, always educated us on what we were up against, what our options were and what we could expect depending on the results. Every time we had a question or concern, he immediately returned the call, told us what to expect and how to proceed. He was never wrong in his advise and the bankruptcy turned out exactly as he said it would.
No surprises, no hidden costs, no upsets. He was very calm and collected during the entire process. Even when the BK judge delayed the discharge and the bank asked for a stay for the lawsuit, Lazaro told us what to expect, what to say and what would happen...there were no surprises.
Lazaro prepared us thoroughly for our court appearance, always showed up on time and was very professional. He advised us regarding our home, which we got to keep...which was a huge item since we had not owned the home for over 2 years and was in jeopardy of losing it in the BK, He knew the laws and cited other cases for us and advised us on what to sign and what not to sign with the lender. We eventually got to sell the home and keep the proceeds. He advised us on our cars, we kept one car and returned the other car back to the bank. He was correct in regards to our lawsuit with the bank against our rental property and how it would "disappear" once the BK was discharged,
Its been over a year and some items still come up regarding the BK, when we call Lazaro, he always returns the call immediately and gives us advise on what the law is and what our options are...never asking for any additional money.
We would absolutely recommend him to anyone going through a bankruptcy. We thought his prices were reasonable and we definitely got more than our moneys worth...he literally saved our life!

Mr. Lazaro Fernandez was a referral to me from a past client of his and there is no regret what so ever contacting this firm. Mr. Fernandez gives thorough information regarding bankruptcy and was very specific to my concerns regarding my case. Mr. Fernandez made me feel at ease while I was going through such a difficult time with the stresses of life. His staff was very professional and were great at assisting me with all of my concerns. Ms. Shelly M. was excellent and sweet. She never skipped a beat making sure all things were in order and keeping me updated via E-mails and with phone calls. The organization and professionalism on how my case was handled did not go unnoticed. In all my experience with Mr. Lazaro Fernandez and his team was excellent. I thank them very much for making a difficult situation simple and quick.
