About Adam

Learn Adam’s areas of practice.

After majoring in business economics at Miami University in southwest Ohio, Mr. Weiner attended the University of Oregon School of Law beginning in the fall of 1995 and moved to Portland in 1998 to begin practicing law. His legal career began as a criminal defense attorney representing indigent individuals charged with misdemeanors. During this time Mr. Weiner gained extensive trial experience as he solely represented his clients from start to finish in 18 jury trials in Washington and Multnomah counties. He now exclusively practices consumer bankruptcy law because he strongly believes that in today’s hostile (and often arbitrary) economic climate individuals need strong, knowledgeable, and compassionate legal representation to help them ease their financial burdens and protect their rights.

 

Mr. Weiner has been an active member of the Oregon State Bar since May 6, 1998. Also, he is admitted to practice in the: U.S. District Court, District of Oregon (April 19, 1999); U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (October 3, 2000); and Supreme Court of the U.S.A (August 5, 2002). When not helping people at his law practice, he enjoys the Redwoods, Oregon’s amazing nature (especially the forests and rivers), and playing music.

Effective, courteous, and very easy to work with
I retained Adam Weiner for my Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. Adam's extremely easy to work with, very detailed and diligent, an excellent communicator, and very effective. He got all the documents and information he needed from me very quickly with zero delays / errors, and got the ball rolling very quickly. My bankruptcy went through and my debts discharged. He's very courteous and generous with his time too, and a really cool person to work with. I recommend Adam for anyone who needs quick results but may be unfamiliar with lawyers, since he's so easy going and accessible.

A knowledgable and caring lawyer
Adam guided us through our bankruptcy with a great knowledge and a very caring attitude. Adam was very clear about the path that we would be on and what we could expect along the way. He was always punctual in all of our meetings and always got back to us in a timely manner. I have had the need to call Adam a few times after our discharge was finished and he is still there for us and continues to help us with things that come up. It is very reassuring to know that he is still there for us when needed. Bankruptcy is not an easy path to follow, but Adam made it as easy as possible for us.. I would certainly recommend Adam to anyone else who might be going to go through bankruptcy.

Peace Within Bankruptcy
Interacting with Adam in any way is very easy, confidence instilling, and a pleasant experience in general. He has a very natural ability to weave his personality with his professional experience in representation. This provided a calm, informative, and ordered manner to how he helped me through the Bankruptcy process. Any time I had any questions, even after the process was complete, he was willing to help. This was a blessing on many levels. His price I felt was more than fair and I would definitely share his name with anyone looking for representation.

Client for Chapter 7
Simply thanking you, Adam, for what you have done for myself and my family, seems inadequate. I have struggled in recent years under the weight of our financial situation. Paying several hundred dollars each month to our creditors, and as a result, needing to access credit lines to meet simple living expenses. I felt helpless, and couldn't break out of the vicious cycle, as our debt continued to mount along with our monthly payments. Bankruptcy was a last resort, and one which I had tried to avoid. Honestly, I don't have a noteworthy story of how I found you. I simply Googled "Bankruptcy Attorney". I had no idea what I should be looking for beyond that. After visiting several links, I picked you because your web page was simple, your picture friendly, and the reviews from previous clients were comforting. The stress, shame, and guilt I felt prior to walking into your office was immense. You immediately put my wife and I at ease with your calm, friendly, and efficient demeanor. I left your office with more hope than I had walked in with. You easily explained the different options we had available, educating us in the pro's and con's of each. Throughout the process, you allowed us to progress at a pace we were comfortable with, and to make the decisions from the choices you presented. After feeling so out-of-control for so long, it was refreshing. You continued to reassure us and to put us at ease, and you always answered our emails and calls quickly. After going through such a personal experience, with you supporting us the whole way, it seemed odd to shake your hand, and issue a simple "thank you" outside of the courthouse when it was finished. What you helped us through, and the brighter future you have helped ensure I can provide for my family, was by no means insignificant. Your professional and knowledgeable, while always friendly, assistance was truly appreciated. Thank you!!

Great Help and Highly Recommend!!!
I would definitely recommend Adam to others as he was very helpful and understanding of my unique situations. With his knowledge and help I was able to file my bankruptcy smoothly and efficiently. He also was great help at answering other questions not related to my bankruptcy and recommended helpful sources for other needs my family had.

Great Representation
Adam was a great help and legal representative during a very difficult time. This was the first time I had ever needed the services of an attorney and I am glad that I chose Adam as my legal counsel.

Excellent attorney
I received an Oregon Bar Association referral to Adam Weiner of Portland Bankruptcy Law Group. I was extremely nervous prior to our meeting, but Adam's friendliness and understanding manner put me at ease right away. There were several complicating factors in my case that concerned me, but Adam's thorough knowledge of bankruptcy law enabled him to capably deal with them. Owing to Adam's skill as a bankruptcy attorney and his extensive experience handling such cases, the process went very smoothly for me and my case was adjudicated without a hitch. At every turn he offered reassurance to put my anxieties to rest, and he provided me with wise counsel as to how I may begin to rebuild a positive credit profile. I know people make a lot of jokes about attorneys, but Adam Weiner operates with the highest standards of integrity and with an ever-present consideration for the difficult emotions that people experience when filing for bankruptcy. If you're facing bankruptcy, I strongly encourage you to meet with Portland Bankruptcy Law Group's Adam Weiner.

Our experience with Adam was excellent!
We chose Adam after meeting with him at his office. We had a couple things we needed to have answered before filing. They were 1.) Can we keep our home? 2.) Can we keep our cars? 3.) Can we keep our 401k's intact? In our situation, we were able to keep all of those. Obviously, everyone's situation is different. In our case, we had accumulated over $104,000 in credit card and medical bill debt. We had thought about using our 401k money to settle these debts with the creditors but wasn't so sure we would have enough money to settle all debt. After explaining our situation with Adam, I think we all came to the conclusion that filing Chapter 7 would be most beneficial to us. Adam provided us with a step by step list of the information needed, in order to get our Chapter 7 filed. He answered all of our questions and made the overall process much easier than we anticipated. Once our Chapter 7 bankruptcy was filed, the phone calls and letters from creditors stopped. We did have one that continued to call but once we notified Adam, that creditor also stopped calling us. About 30 days after filing, we had a meeting with the trustee and creditors. In our case, we didn't have any creditors show up, which Adam mentioned was typically the norm. We were pretty nervous about this meeting but Adam told us to answer all questions honestly, which we did. This meeting literally lasted about 10 minutes. We were relieved that it went smoother than expected. About 60 days later we received word from Adam that are debts had been discharged. To us, that meant $104,000 wiped clean. No more calls, letters, bills, or debt. My only regret is I wish I would have contacted Adam Weiner earlier! We struggled for a couple years trying to keep up with paying our bills and making ends meet. If I would have known the bankruptcy process was going to be like this, we would contacted Adam much sooner. Adam is very knowledgeable in Bankruptcy law and I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling with their debts, like we once were. It's been about 4 months since our bankruptcy was discharged and have already started to re-establish our credit. (We have a small $500 and $750 unsecured credit card with Capital One). Thank you Adam for helping us get a fresh start, we truly appreciate your work!
