Nobody wants to go bankrupt
You are in a distressed situation and have lost your status quo when You need to hire a attorney who practices bankruptcy law. Claudia was recommended as a person who not only knows the law but also understands the extremely emotional stress that going through bankruptcy places on a person. Claudia is a registered nurse and a lawyer. So she has a level of empathy and understanding that you don’t get with a regular attorney. She led me through a seven figure chapter 13 that went on for nearly two years and involved over 100 creditors. In the end I was able to keep my home and get on with my life. I shudder to think how different my life today would be if she had not represented me.

Easy Going and Non Judgmental Bankruptcy Attorney...YES Really!!!
Claudia is amazing. She has always been informative and helpful as well as very professional. She kept me informed every step of the way during my bankruptcy in 2011. I appreciate how she was very non judgemental and easy going. Honestly the best attorney I've ever met. I wish she practiced other types of law...if she did I would have used her for more issues I've run across over the years. Thank you Claudia.

I hired Claudia to handle mine and my husband's chapter 7 bankruptcy. Having no previous experience with lawyer's she made me very comfortable and answered any and every question I had. Claudia made this a very easy and effortless process. She really does care about every case and takes the time to listen to your situation without judgment. I highly recommend her!

Claudia was terrific, she really helped me and my husband dig ourselves out of almost 100K in debt. She has our bankruptcy filed on Monday and by that very next day my husbands checks were no longer being garnished. We were able to breath for once in over 4 years of just pure frustration. Thank you Claudia.
