Just the mere thought of having to file bankruptcy after a somewhat successful life is depressing and life-altering. Eventually after weeks of diligent research - I interviewed several attorneys in this area - I decided to go with Andrew Mansfield. His personality, knowledge, considerateness, and professionalism gave me a high level of comfort and ease. Andrew cares about his clients and I was not just a number. He actually provided additional highly rated attorneys for me to interview (which I did). Andrew took the time to listen and understand my situation without the need of running around or constantly taking other phone calls. He alleviated much of my stress by explaining the details, chain of events and the outcome he was certain about including being present at the court hearing. Everything was timely.
I highly recommend Andrew and would definitely refer him to my friends and family. A friend of mine who briefly met Andrew while at the court hearing and who has a bit of experience with Attorneys through her profession commented that she would have picked him. If in doubt interview the attorneys you are considering.
Even after a couple of years I am still received with kindness and inclusion by both Andrew and Blythe. I could write a long story......but all I will say is that I am grateful to have picked Andrew as my attorney. Thank you Andrew and Blythe!!!

Just wanted to say Thank You to Andrew, Blythe and Gretchen . I was very fortunate to find you guys. After dealing with another attorney my bankruptcy got complicated, I'm being honest when I say this I didn't trust anyone. But I found Andrew, I trusted in him. Andrew and he's team made me feel at ease. He told me not to worry and he would handle everything. And he did. He got a reaffirmation letter from my bank. Which was very difficult to do. Took time but he did an awesome job. Now I can reastablish my credit and go Foward . Thank You and your team.

I can't say enough what a pleasure it was to work with Andrew Mansfield. I had read a lot of reviews on other attorneys and was nervous because so many people had been taken advantage of when they were already at a very low and vulnerable time in their lives. My husband and I both immediately felt that Andrew was trustworthy and that he genuinely cared about helping people. He totally understands your circumstances and treats you with respect and integrity. He was there the whole way through and made it seem like a breeze. His fees are straight up and very reasonable. Not only is he a very nice guy, but he is a very knowledgeable attorney and takes the time to explain exactly what is going to happen (taking away all the fear of the unknown). We felt very safe with him on our side. I'm extremely thankful that he has chosen the profession that he has in order to help those of us that are in need. Thank you, Andrew. It was an extreme pleasure. Highly recommended.

I was very pleased with Mr. Mansfield's in-depth knowledge and his ability to explain the details of my case to me. He and his staff kept me well informed. They provide a level of caring and dignity that is unique in this business. I highly recommend Mr. Mansfield and his firm.

We will work exclusively with Andrew Mansfield and the HCM staff on all complicated financial matters. Not only did our data collection, analysis, and presentation run smoothly, we were dealing with multiple residential properties in different states during our BK filing. Andrew and his team made the whole process painless, educational, and smooth. We are glad that if anything like our filing comes up again, we know who we can call, trust, and depend on.

I had a tenant who stopped paying rent. I took her to small claims court, and she continuously delayed, objected...It kept going on and on. I won finally and then had to go back again to collect and get a wage garnishment. Again delays, etc. Finally after the first garnishment, she filed bankruptcy. During this process, I discovered she even lied on her rental application The amount was relatively small, and I went to the free bankruptcy clinic in Santa Barbara. The attorney there told me that it wasn't worth it. Just let it go and move on. I learned also that she had done something similar to someone else in the past. Eventually, the previous landlord gave up from her manipulative tactics. I was about to give up also, but it didn't seem right. In one final act of desperation I contacted Andrew Mansfield. He and Blythe were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Andrew is in court so often he even knew the judge and Trustee. They took care of everything and arranged for a favorable settlement in addition to collecting the garnished wages. They are very, very honest and knowledgeable and fair. They explained, met with us after hours, were accommodating to our needs. A real breath of fresh air.

Andrew's knowledge of bankruptcy law brought a tremendous amount of comfort to me as I began the journey of filing. Both Andrew and the office were professional and treated everything with extreme understanding and discretion. The communication from Andrew was timely and frequent. Andrew was consistent all the way through the process and followed things through to the end with a successful result.

Attorney Mansfield explained all the steps to Chapter 7 to me. I am not technology advanced and he allowed me to take the online course at his office location. He is smart and trustworthy. He sent me a lot of updates throughout the process. The office location is convenient for me, too. I recommend attorney Mansfield to the greatest degree possible.

Me and my husband went to see Mr. Mansfield at the beginning of December 2012. This was one of the most hardest thing we had to do. Andrew and his wife Blythe were so nice and they made us feel so comfortable. Mr. Mansfield was very professional and all him paperwork was very well prepared. I cannot express how satisfied I was with his services.
