As a bankruptcy attorney I focus on helping people file chapter 7 and chapter 13, and chapter 11 bankruptcy. Often my bankruptcy clients are homeowners that need help catching up on their mortgage payments and folks that simply have too much credit card debt to handle.  I graduated from Pepperdine University in 2003.  In 2007, I received my Juris Doctor from the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law.  I began practicing bankruptcy law and offering debt solutions to the Sacramento community in 2008. My practice has focused on responding to the growing number of job losses and home foreclosures.  I have helped many of my clients protect their homes, reduce their credit card debt, and lower interest rates on car loans.  I offer a free initial consultation so that we can discuss what options you have to resolve your debt challenges.  Contact us at.

Best Law Firm in Northern California who genuinely care about their clients!
Going through a difficult and stressful period in my life where my finances were becoming too overbearing to deal with, I felt my only option was to file for bankruptcy. I called a few law firms and actually met with a local attorney who I felt didn't have much experience led me to look for attorneys further away. When I called the Liviakis Law Firm, I was quickly connected to Laurie, who was very pleasant and understanding. She made me feel like she cared and immediately wanted to help me. She was able to book an appointment that same day. Not sure what to expect, Mik was very compassionate and showed great knowledge in Bankruptcy Law. He was able to answer all my questions and concerns that I had about filing for bankruptcy. I immediately decided to hire Mik and it proved to be the best decision I had made. Mik, Jeremy, and Brent helped the bankruptcy process seem like a breeze and made me feel at ease. Brent and Jeremy were on top of making sure all documents were in place, guided and prepared me step by step on the process. Mik and his team have stood by my side every step of the way, especially attending the Meeting of Creditors, which was scary and nerve wrecking. Mik and his team have taken a huge and heavy burden off my shoulders and have given me the chance to start over. I am extremely grateful for the Liviakis Law Firm Team and am so glad that I decided to look further and drive the distance.

BK Master
I visited a couple different BK Lawyers. But it was Mikalah that was referred to me by a lawyer that was retiring, and said he'd hoped to pass on his practice to Mikalah because of his skill level. Anyway true he wasn't the cheapest I talked to but when your talking BK, that's nothing I want to get cheapest deal when we're talking this magnitude of an issue. His professionalism was outstanding, and preparation was acceptional. I'd highly recommend him. Even the judge was impressed with his oganization.

A firm you can trust.
Mr. Liviakis and his entire staff made us feel comfortable and important. This was a very difficult time for us and we had been through a lot of rejection, dishonesty and misinformation. That all stopped after our consultation with Mr. Liviakis. We had clear options and a direction. The decision to file bankruptcy was gut wrenching, but once we decided to file his firm took us in and made us feel like it was the right decision. They are amazingly accessible and knowledgeable. I hope that I never "need" their services again. But I know that if I need them they will be there for us.

LOOK NO FURTHER THIS IS THE BOMB ATTORNEY FOR BANKRUPTCY
We started to file Bankruptcy with another Law firm in Roseville on Douglas Blvd., and THANK GOD my husband had questions and went to LIVIAKIS LAW FIRM to ask them. After finding out how KNOWLEDGEABLE and AGRESSIVE "Mikki" is, we immediately switched. It saved us SOOO much money and we were able to keep our cars and other property we were told we couldn't keep with the other Law Firm. He lowered interest rates, values and balances on our existing property, and we only had to come up with a minimal down payment. We didn't have to wonder what was happening as he (and his associates), kept us informed all the way. No time wasted here, we were in and out. We couldn't believe it was so painless and quick. He really cared about us and he has a good sense of humor along with a professional manner. THANX MIKKI...... ;) SAVE TIME...GO HERE FIRST....YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT !!!!!!!!!! I PROMISE .....

Excellent lawyer
I retained Mr. Liviakis after a very bad experience with another lawyer who basically abandoned my case. Mr. Liviakis was thorough in his analysis of the law and the facts of the case and very prompt in responding to all of my questions. His professional handling of the case gave me confidence that the matter would be done right.

Professional
After interviewing several lawyers, I decided to use Miki. Miki and his staff were knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. They kept me informed every step of the way and made me feel like they "cared". I have worked with a number of attorneys over the past 25 years and Miki is someone whom you can trust.
Posted by Tressa | January 25, 2013
GREAT LAWYER
Mikalah would answer a question or concern that I had regarding notices that I had received in the mail. He was very reassuring when we had our meeting with the trustee. He has kept me informed through emails on the status of my case.

We were fortunate to have found Mikalah Liviakis
Miki was referred to us by another very good attorney. We were very fortunate to have found him and the staff at his office. He is a very professional, competent attorney; even more so, he was concerned about us and how we were surviving our bankruptcy. We highly recommend him.

Superior Service with Results
I interviewed 5 bankruptcy law firms before finding Liviakis Law Firm. The other firms made me feel like a "number" in the process that seemed intimidating and devaluing. Mikalah is a rarity in his profession with a sincere, caring approach that eases the heightened state of emotions that comes with financial distress. He knows how to balance the human needs of his clients with the business at large. He displayed compassion, empathy and understanding in our first meeting and assessed the best situation for me as a small business owner. His staff, especially Shaleen, was amazing in delivering exceptional service with attention to every detail. All my questions were answered in a timely manner and each inquiry was treated with respect and dignity. With this level of service, I gained confidence to move forward with assurance and optimism instead of being fearful and apprehensive. The expediate methods provided by Mikalah and his staff helped me in obtaining the goal of starting the new year with a fresh start for my business. Additionally, Mikalah's experience, expertise and wealth of knowledge was extremely valuable and reassuring. Not only did he expertly guide me through a very challenging situation, he also encouraged me to stay true to my life's work to build my business once again. I highly recommend Liviakis Law Firm to all who are looking for a compassionate, efficient, high level of service law firm, which in my experience, is rare.

Positive Response for Mikalah
Mikalah was very helpful with our case and worked closely with us during the process. He was upfront with specific issues that were raised by the trustee and we would not have been able to have the positive outcome without him.
