Highly recommended
I was recommended Jonathan by a friend who had worked with him on her bankruptcy and had nothing but good to say. She was right. Jon is a dedicated and experienced person, explained everything very thoroughly, answered questions in a timely and personal manner. Strange as it sounds, it was as enjoyable as filing for bankruptcy could possibly be.

Kathleen Rogers Client
I had to do something serious about my money problems and Mr. Cothan was the best solution to my problems. He was so professional with my papers, he always responded to all my communications, when we went to the hearing downtown L.A. out of the 12 cases that were reviewed only 3 were approved and that included me. The others even though they had attorneys were missing papers. His price was completely reasonable and he made me feel ok about what I was doing with the bankruptcy on all fronts. He is totally respectful, always on time and the best.

Mr. Cothran was so very helpful and the only lawyer that contacted me personally the day after I emailed him, needless to say he was willing to work with me and helped me get through a very stressful situation that I was experiencing at the time. I am truly grateful for his knowledge and expertise. I have recomended him highly to all my friends. Thank you Mr. Cothran

Outstanding, thorough and efficient!
Mr. Cothran filed my Chapter 7. 10 years ago I was forced to file and concerned with the new laws that went into effect a few years back. The concern was unnecessary as Mr. Cothran is very well versed in this area as well as the other areas of my life this would impact. Such as modifying my mortgage, personal loans and potential child support issues. Mr. Cothran is extremely efficient with respect to getting your information filed and the pre-filing/post filing classes you must take prior to your hearing. I would most definitely use him again and would highly recommend him.

"It's not often when you see an attorney who puts in the long hours not because he has to but because he wants to become the best at what he does. I've personally seen Jon put in the hours so he can zealously and vigorously represent his clients as best as anyone could. His passion and understanding of helping people is hard to match."
