"LIVE DEBT FREE AGAIN!" LAKE FOREST BANKRUPTCY IN LOVELY LAKE FOREST, CALIFORNIA.

I want you to know that I love what I do.

Why?

I tell large corporations to go jump in a lake.

Every day.

Every single day, I tell large corporations with more money then I will ever see for the rest of my days that they have no power and can't hurt my client.

Its really great.  I actually see my clients' lives improve.  You don't always get to see the fruit of your efforts as an attorney.

This is why i give lots of free advice, I spend time on the phone and why I help people regularly even though I won't get paid.

Give me a call and ask me some questions or look for my responses here on AVVO or at my websites:

Top Notch Guy and Very Ethical
For the past several months I've been trying to navigate my financial problems on my own. I started to feel a bit overwhelmed...thinking that I'm in over my head...and muddied the waters too much for me to continue to handle on my own....so I decided to start interviewing Attorney's to help me. I chose to reach out to Anerio because of his AVVO reviews. I contacted him via email to take advantage the free consultation, and he responded to my request very quickly, and got me in for an appointment the following afternoon. When I met with Anerio I found him to be a down to earth cool guy...not only did he listen to my problem... he spent a generous amount of time with me... he reviewed everything that I've already done thus far...and to my surprise he told me that he DOESN'T think that I need his help!... and then he provided me with an outline of what I should do....and then if that doesn't work out, we should talk more. He didn't have to do that!... and this small gesture shows that he is an extremely an ethical person, loves helping people....and is the type of person and Attorney that everyone wants to work with. I am going to heed his advice, and will reach out to him again should I need him....and I recommend that you if you're looking for help resolving your financial issues....you should at least meet with Anerio, and take comfort in knowing that if he doesn't think you need his help, he'll tell you. Thanks Anerio...you're consult and advice really helped!

Great and professional (Chapter 7)
It's a hard decision to file for bankruptcy. First of all Aneiro Altman helped us get emotional moments. He was there for us with all the information we requested and made this process simple and quick. In 4 1/2 months we were discharged. We appreciate everything he has done for us and we want to assure him that he has our recommendation! Thank you!

Great Service
Making a decision to file was one of the hardest legal matters my wife and I had ever done. After our first consultation, Mr. Altman was able to set us at ease. Each step of the way became easier and our comfort level increased. I did my part and presented Mr. Altman with all the information he needed. After that he took over and we just waited for his further instruction. Mr. Altman took all the stress out of this legal matter. My wife and I appreciate all that he has done for us.

Excellent Attorney!
Anerio kept his cool and the Chapter 13 process on track to successful completion. He always responded to my concerns and status update requests even off business hours, evenings, weekends and holidays. He patiently explained the significance of each stage of the process and what to expect and what to do. Highly recommended!

Absolutely fantastic
I had spoken to several attorneys before going with Anerio. I was surprised by his reasonable rates. His availability was flexible and he was thorough, professional, and attentive. I would recommend him to anyone. He let me know beforehand he may have another attorney at my hearing, which he did. That attorney was completely knowledgable about my case and friendly. Top notch service.

Legal
Mr. Altman assisted me when I tried to buy a car during the bankruptcy period. The lender was giving me trouble even though I had the court's approval. I was able to purchase the car. He was very prompt at returning email communication any time I had questions.

He's awesome
Anerio is the man!! He helped me get through the process of bankruptcy without any problems. Even when a creditor garnished my check after the bankruptcy was filed, Anerio fought for them to reimburse me back the money that was taken!!

Satisfied
Attorney Altman explained the Bankruptcy procedures and kept me informed on my case. We had constructive conversations concerning my case and I am satisfied with his work. I would recommend Attorney Altman to my friends and family.

Bankruptcy
Anerio is by far the best there is out there when it come to bankruptcy law and procedures. He made the process seamless and easy. I can't thank him enough for what he was able to do and to accomplish in such a short amount of time. He knows that time is precious and does everything he can to get the process started and ended as quickly and as easy as possible. He is always on time and keeps you updated no matter how big or small the topic may be and will always have your back in the process of filing and the courts. I would highly recommend him and his law firm to anyone and have already talked to those that have asked if they are serious they should contact him. If you need someone who is reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, responsible, communicative and personable then Anerio Altman is the guy for you.

My general fear of Bankruptcy was completely unfounded
Much like everyone that has never filed for bankruptcy, I had a fear that it was going to be this impossible hill to climb and a thousand rings for fire to jump through. I went through a vengeful divorce years ago that ruined my credit and left me with untold debt. I wallowed through it all not wanting to take the plunge of bankruptcy. I was about to get married again and really wanted a clean slate. Not to bring my new wife into the sea of debt left by my past marriage. I was recommended to call Anerio by a colleague. He made time to meet with me to meet early on a Saturday morning to get the paperwork started. Really never heard of from an attorney that I have ever dealt with before. He and his wonderful wife worked through all the paperwork and I received confirmation emails every step along the way. If I had a question, he always got back to me before the end of the day. The day of me hearing, they both were there to help me and to take the paperwork handoff and keep it moving. All in all, the process was quick, painless and flawless. I know that I could have never found an attorney that was as easy to work with as Anerio. Hopefully, I will never need his services again, but I have told many other people looking to bankruptcy to definitely call Anerio. Well done!

Highly recommed - easy to work with
Anerio was very up front and straight forward from the beginning. I only had to attend court once and from then on he handled all the documents and correspondence. It was easy to communicate with him via email and he would always return my call with in a reasonable amount of time. He handled a very personal situation with the most upmost professionalism.
