About Pauldeep

Learn Pauldeep’s areas of practice.

I have been practicing law since 2010 and have helped hundreds of clients get a second chance in life by eliminating their obligations to pay back their debts. The greatest joy my work brings me is seeing the sense of relief on a client's face after I have explained to them their rights and shown them that their is light at the end of the tunnel.

Would definitely recommend
Mr. Bains was referred to us by a friend, so we had some sense of his work dealing with Bankruptcy. He understood our situation and provided us with the best solution. Mr. Bains and his staff replied to our phone calls and emails in a timely manner. We always felt we were in good hands and would definitely be comfortable referring him to others.

Kind and competent
Paul left no stone unturned and made the stressful experience into something very manageable. From the moment I met him, he did not make me feel judged, but was sympathetic and encouraging. He prepared the case very thoroughly, and when we had to present in court, my case was accepted easily and quickly. He even managed to get the second on my house stripped, which was not expected! I recommend Paul highly.

Best BK Attorney
Going through bankruptcy can be hard and very challenging, it has its moments where you feel as though you have just hit rock bottom; but when you have someone who truly cares, and puts in the hard work and effort to make things happen for you, an help you get through this process - it makes all the difference in the world. Paul Bains RESPONDS to phone calls, emails and text. You are NOT just another number, or client in the data base - he is personal, caring, and gives attention to detail. Since I had to go through this, I am most certainly glad that I had Paul in my corner. I will always say that he is THE BEST at what he does, thanks Paul.

chapter 7 bankruptcy
Paul and his support staff were very helpful over the phone from the very first contact. I was able to have a thorough phone consultation and fill out a worksheet to help determine if I was a candidate for chapter 7 bankruptcy, then I made payments as I was able and when I was ready, he was quick to file and advise me face to face. The whole team helped prepare me and I always felt welcome to call to ask any questions and was given quick and accurate answers. I was meet at court where Paul reviewed my case and helped me understand what to expect with the questions from the judge. The whole process was made as painless as possible for such a difficult decision. I am really grateful for the level of professional care and personal dignity paid to me by Paul and his team.

Filing Bankruptcy
I am a senior citizen & hard of hearing. Unfortunately I found myself in a terrible financial situation. I was about to lose my home & had no way of paying off my debt. I tried refinancing & was not approved. I was very insecure in what had to be done to file bankruptcy. Paul was very supportive & helpful in getting me through this difficult process. He was professional & kind. He was always respectful of me & my situation. He made sure that I understood everything & answered all my questions. I am appreciative that he was able to help me save my home.

Total support
My husband passed away and I retired all in the same year. It put me into a very bad financial position. Mr. Bains helped me through the process by pretty much holding my hand. I couldn't have asked for more support during a very stressful experience. The process went smoothly and thanks to Mr. Bains, it is all behind me now.

There were some hiccups here and there. However, I think over all, my case has been handled in the most professional manner. There's been multiple modifications and with each one, he's accommodated accordingly. Also, he's responsive and open to any questions regarding my case. Keep up the good work.
