Fenn Law Firm is a family owned and operated law firm serving individiuals and businesses throughout Southern California.  Our goal is to treat every client and potential client the way we'd treat a family member or friend.  It sounds cliche, but it has worked for us, and our clients seem to appreciate our efforts, especially when they are used to speaking with creditors and collectors who tend to take a very different approach.

 

The most common statement I hear from clients after leaving my office is "I'm going to sleep for the first time in months tonight."  Speak with one of our attorneys today, and I'm confident you will feel the same way.

Most helpful and informative
While I received negative responses from others, Brian was full of information and optimism for my situation. I will Definitely be using him if we are able to reach agreeable fees

The Absolute Best!
I have dealt with and worked for attorney's in my 70+ years, and I must say Brian is at the very top of my list, and I'm not easily impressed. Brian went way above and beyond what he needed to do to help me with my bankruptcy questions. Brian also gave me tips, some of which I knew nothing about that were of great value to me. I would recommend Brian to anyone that would like an attorney they can not only trust to do the job, but do it correctly. I was also impressed with how quickly he got back to me any time I contacted him. Brian is top notch and a person could feel safe putting their personal or business problems in his hands. I would rate Brian much higher if the system allowed it. star only review

Excellent and Knowledgeable
Bankruptcy is not what we wanted but when my brothers situation worsened we decided to talk with Brian Fenn. After our initial meeting we realized Brian could help my brother and we started on the bankruptcy journey. Brian is knowledagable and walked us through the entire process. He made a painful and embarrassing situation bearable. Thank you Brian for the peace of mind my brother now has. I would not hesitate to recommend Brian and the Fenn Law Firm.

Smooth process from start to finish!
When you finally come to the realization that you need a BK lawyer, you look for the best and most competent person to represent you. Brian is it. We found Brian through a referral from my friend, and we couldn't have been more pleased. On day 1, I called and left a voicemail. Brian personally returned my call same day, and we spoke for about an hour on how and why to proceed with BK. He was knowledgeable, answered my questions with straight forward answers, up front with his charges, etc.. Our situation had to do with out of state real estate and finances, and his advice on how to proceed was spot on. Anyhow, throughout the course of filing he was always available via text and/or email. In fact, since my home was quite a distance from his office, he met half way to meet/discuss our case. I never once stepped foot in his office. Long story short, Brian treated us well, was available when we needed him, and we walked away feeling very confident with life after a BK. He is highly recommended!!!!

Fellow Professional
I am looking for an immigration attorney to assist family friends who have a removal proceeding. Brian's practice does not include removal proceedings but he was very kind in referring me to a fellow attorney who does. I appreciated Brian's professionalism and friendliness.

Excellence in bankruptcy services.
I highly recommend Brian Fenn for his bankruptcy attorney services. My case was particularly complex and involved real estate in two other states. Brian referred me to a top notch real estate professional who was able to efficiently deal with these properties while working with Brian in light of my pending bankruptcy. There were several other timing issues that came up that made filing for bankruptcy more difficult. Brian guided me through those matters as well. Brian’s very reasonable fees were stated up front. There were no surprises. Although the bankruptcy process is relatively quick, there was a lot of preparation required in order for everything to go smoothly. This preparation saved me quite a bit of money and made the final application quick and easy. On a number of occasions I had face-to-face meetings with Brian as well as email communication. Brian was readily accessible and provided prompt and accurate guidance. My only experience with Brian is his bankruptcy services but I am sure that his professionalism and integrity is found in all aspects of his legal practice. If you are in need of his services, give him a call. I’m certain you won’t regret it and it will be a great step in putting your financial or other legal problems behind you.

Our Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Brian was very compassionate and patient in our situation. He took care of us in our difficult financial stress and got the job done as quickly as possible. He was able to have all of our debts discharged, except for our Federal Student Loans, of course. Brian is a very warm and caring person and I highly recommend him for any legal matter you need legal representation and expertise for.

Excellent, kind and very helpful!!!!
Mr.Fenn was ever so kind to look over our bankruptcy filing that was done by a paralegal. In a matter of hours he looked over everything and called me back and gave us peace of mind. He didn't charge or ask anything in exchange. If I could do this over I would hire him in a quick second and saved myself the worry over this whole process. Quality lawyer right here! I didn't think anybody would look over our file,spend time on it and be as meticulous as Mr.Fenn was and give us peace of mind for free. Thank you Mr.Fenn!! May God bless your firm and increase your business and become even more successful! You have blessed us! Thank you! Thank you!!

One of the Best Bankruptcy Attorneys on the Planet!
I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fenn on several occasions, assisting his clients in settling homeowner Debts through the innovative use of short sales in combination with a Bankruptcy. His leading-edge strategies assist his homeowners to own a home again in 2 years instead of 5-7 years with a traditional bankruptcy/foreclosure. Mr. Fenn is a true Advocate to his clients, using innovative strategies to gain the best advantage for his clients, often keeping them in their properties rent free for several months longer than if the property would have foreclosed. This helps families gain a truly "new beginning" - and with some extra money in the bank! I even worked with Mr. Fenn assisting a high net worth client unload 1.6 million dollars of negative equity, when the client was not a candidate for other debt resolution strategies. I and your many satisfied clients thank you Brian, "From the bottom of our short-sale hearts"! With Gratitude, Julie Larson Boyd REThinkShortSaleSolutions.com

They don't know what they are doing.
I never write reviews, but I'm so dissatisfied with the service from Immigration Law Authority that I had to let everyone out there know that they need to say away from this place. First of all, I never got to see or talk to the attorney. Secondly, all the girls who work there are incompetent. They never return your phone calls, they don't do what they say they are going to do and always gave me incorrect information. They are all Unreliable! ! I have nothing good to say about Immigration Law Authority. Don't waste your time or money with these people.

Do not get him, only if you want to give him money, asks for too much money
He was helping with my case but never saw him in person, always tried to call him and his people would call and not him, poor very poor work, false information given to me. Charges a lot . Promises a lot and nothing is true.
