I am Orange County Bankruptcy Attorney, Michael D. Franco.

I know what I’m doing and I’m good at it. I have had the pleasure to help 1,000’s of individuals, couples and businesses get through their financial crisis and then watch them afterwards embrace a better, brighter future. 

Bankruptcy is all I do. No need to be anxious. Let's see if bankruptcy makes sense for you!  

I offer FREE phone or office consultations.  I will personally review your situation. I will not hand you off to staff, a paralegal or a junior lawyer. You will speak only with me.

I am a “CERTIFIED SPECIALIST” in Bankruptcy Law. I earned that designation in 2013. Very few California attorneys have earned the distinction as Certified Specialists in their focused practice area. 

All my education, all my efforts, all my talents are focused on helping people solve their financial dilemmas.

Mike answered the call and all my questions on the first call!
I really appreciate the fact that Mike picked up my call on the first attempt and went in depth on our options and consideration of filing. He is very personable and doesn't make you feel dumb when it comes to law. Although filing for BK may not be our best solution right now we will definitely been sending his info to those that may need his service. He really made us feel comfortable.

The best!
During a difficult time in my life I was very fortunate to have been referred to Michael Franco, bankruptcy attorney. From the very beginning Mr. Franco was very informative, helpful and responsive. Whether it was a phone call, email or text message I would hear back within a very short time. He was kind and non-judgemental and a pleasure to work with. The price charged was very fair and worth every penny. Mr. Franco is the best and I can't recommend him highly enough!

Great Bankruptcy Attorney
Michael Franco recently handled my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. He was very patient and helpful while he walked me through all of the steps of my case from beginning to end. He answered all of my questions and always responded promptly when I called or emailed. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is actively looking for a bankruptcy attorney or just seeking information on the bankruptcy process. He made me feel at ease during a very difficult time in my life. Thank you Mr Franco.

Michael Franco - A HUGE Blessing!
After weeks of researching how to solve my financial mess, I found bankruptcy lawyer Michael Franco. You can tell that bankruptcy is all he does. Totally fluent in every detail. No hesitancy answering my long list of questions. He explained every detail of the process. Mr. Franco answered or returned every phone call and email. On that first day he totally calmed me down and lowered my stress level from a 10+ to a relaxed feeling of peace. That alone was amazing after months of anxiety. Michael is fair, honest and handles everything.
