The very best :)
Mr Antico made us smile when we didn't think we could. He was patient with us as we went through one of the most difficult times in our lives. I highly recommend him.

Great Lawyer
My husband and I went to see Mr. Antico at his Palmdale office, we presented our case to him. We were looking to either consolidate or file bankruptcy, but after he looked at our papers, he was very honest and told us that neither would help. I am retired and my husband is unemployed, he told us basically that we would have to meet certain criteria, in either case. I am glad that he sat down with us, and explained how each process worked. Mr. Antico and his staff are very professional, and return calls promptly. I have referred him to people that I know that are having financial problems and are considering bankruptcy. I want to thank Mr. Antico and his staff for their time and patience with us.

Good Lawyer
Mr Antico gave me a free consult. After he went though all the details of my case he put my interests before his profitability and informed me BK would most likely not work for me.! I did talk to a few other lawyers and they were very careful not to make promises but sure painted a rosy picture. Mr Antico gave it to me straight. I will not hesitate to hire Antico if I need a lawyer. Good people.

The Best Bankruptcy Experience! Who would have thought??
Nobody wants to wind up going into bankruptcy, let's face it. When my husband lost his job due to his disability, we were not ready to handle the enormous impact we were faced financially. Mr. Antico has an 'easy to understand' approach where we not only saw a Chapter 13 as a result. We found that a Chapter 13 was actually beneficial to our future. My husband isn't going to heal. We have legal rights. Mr. Antico saw to that we saved every cent possible! We have some tricky loans and my husband's income had been on the 'higher' end of average, so Mr. Antico's advice on timing, along with his advanced knowledge of court routine and relationships throughout the legal system, all came together for us. The result?? Normally a Chapter 13 is 5 years of payments. He was able to get us 3 years in payments. Total % we are paying is 7% of our total debt. We are so relieved!! Thanks to Mr. Antico and his staff for helping us get through this difficult journey!
