    Patrick McMahon is one of the top bankruptcy attorneys in the Bay Area. He's been doing this for over 15 years. He knows the law inside and out, and can explain to you the impact it will have on your specific situation. He's agressive where appropriate, meanwhile maintaining an excellent repuation with the Court, the trustees, and other lawyers.
