4.5 stars 20 totalReview Ivan Trahan
Posted by anonymous
I am a single mother. My husband died about ten years ago and I never got married again. With two kids and my mom to take care of, I have always had problems keeping up with bills. When I went to see Mr. Trahan, he told me I could sue the credit card companies that were calling me on my cell and that's what we did. I still have to file bankruptcy because I didn't get that many calls so I didn't get enough money to pay off all of my credit cards, but I got enough to buy a nice used car and to fix all of the broken things in my house that I haven't had the money to fix and I even put some of the money into an IRA. I had seen other lawyers before Mr. Trahan and none of them ever told me about this phone call lawsuit, so I am very grateful to Mr. Trahan and his wife, Nancy, too because they both have helped me a lot and they never made me feel bad about the money problems I had. Mr. Trahan was recommended by a co-worker who was also happy with his services.

Nancy and Ivan Trahan assured me, after I gave them all of the information they required, that I could file for ch. 7. Months later I was told ch. 7 wouldnt work and that ch. 13 would but I needed to get 3 months behind on my mortgage. When I was days from being foreclosed on and had been trying to contact them for weeks, I was told that I didnt qualify for ch. 13 either. Nancy Trahan thought that a bill was going to pass raising the equity exemption and based on that took my fees. I didnt know this until we were far into it. She continued to assure me that it was going to work until I almost lost my house. I asked for my fèes to be refunded, which of course they refused. I would steer clear of these people.

I met with Ivan Trahan a year ago, and informed him I was thinking of filing bankruptcy. He took the time to look over my situation and gave me advice on NOT to file bankruptcy at that time, and to wait about a year due to some of the debts that I had. He didn't charge me one dime for this visit. I took his advice and one year later I met with him and his lovely wife, Nancy, again and proceeded with my bankruptcy. I was quite embarrassed due to my financial situation, however, both Ivan and Nancy never judged or made me feel ashamed. They guided me thru the task of getting all of my paperwork together. Whenever, I had a question, Nancy always answered my phone calls, emails, texts, etc. immediately. Today I had my 341 meeting and again, Nancy and Ivan were right by my side. I have the highest regard for both of them and anyone going thru the trails and tribulations of considering or filing bankruptcy, should definitely call Ivan Trahan. You can't find a better lawyer! He will always have your back, and the same goes for his wife, Nancy. Thank you both so much. You gave me a brand new lease on life!!!!!!!

When another attorney refers you to a bankruptcy attorney describing him as excellent, that is high praise and I now agree that Ivan Trahan is an excellent attorney. He is knowledgeable and courteous. Ivan Trahna and his wonderful staff helped me with a bankruptcy from beginning through discharge including advice for after. At the initial meeting Mr. Trahan summarized the entire procedure. He explained the law, the process and all the options with regard to timing and classification of assets and exemptions for the most advantageous and best possible outcome. Attorney Trahan provided an organized working checklist to help me to give the information necessary for court. You don’t have to try to remember and organize it. This was very helpful since bankruptcy is stressful and can be overwhelming to the point of immobilizing you. He tells you what to expect in court making you feel prepared rather than nervous. Mr. Trahan handled the matter smoothly and professionally. I have had attorneys for other matters and found Ivan Trahan to really be one of the best. I was completely satisfied and would recommend Ivan Trahan to anyone who needs a fresh start.

When I went to see Ivan I owed around $50,000 and I couldn't pay it. He asked me if my credit card companies were calling me on my cell and they were. They had me on auto dial and were calling me like five times a day. Ivan told me we could sue my creditors for that and that they would have to pay me at least $500 per call. I didn't really believe it at first (would you?), but since it wasn't going to cost me anything I went ahead and did it. Ivan filed three lawsuits for me and one of them settled within 3 mos. for $65,000. I had to pay him a percentage of what I got, but who cares? That was they deal. Plus they wiped the slate clean, so that subtracted about $12,000 from the $50,000 I owed when I first came in. I haven't filed bankruptcy yet and I might not even have to depending on how the other lawsuits turn out.

When I first met with Ivan Trahan, I was hopelessly in debt and more than a little depressed. I left his office feeling like a new person. He took my horrible financial debacle and made it right. He was was always available to answer my many questions. And his assistant, wife Nancy, was always available with a shoulder to cry on. I would recommend Ivan Trahan without hesitation.

I have worked with Ivan for over 4 years and he has been by my side through my bankrupcy and great advise when I needed it. He has always been on top of the issues and always was in communication with me. He has always looked out for me and advise me when things change. He would also come all the way up to Ventura County and a short notice to help me with the court system. I recommed him with more than five stars.

I was drowning in my bills and went to see Mr. Trahan upon the advice of a friend. When I learned of his experience in the field of bankruptcy I hired him to take my case. I was given clear instructions and a binder to help me organize my paperwork. I could not be more happy now that my case has discharged and the ease with which it was carried out by my attorney. He has provided me with piece of mind and was always friendly and helpful when I needed help with something. I very highly recommend his services.

My wages were being garnished when I went to see Ivan Trahan. His wife filled out an exemption claim form for me and mailed it before I even left their office. They didn't charge me anything for that. I'm a single mother of two so I really appreciated that. Mr. Trahan explained everything to me in such an easy to understand way and now we have a plan for solving all of my money problems. For the time being, he stopped the garnishment. I really appreciated that also. Now we are going to sue my creditors for calling me on my cell phone and that's not going to cost me anything either. I never would have knows I could do either of these two things had I not gone to see Mr. Trahan. I'd recommend him to anyone who is looking for a fair and competent attorney.
