Our Legal Services

Thanks to our team’s diverse backgrounds and skill sets, we’re able to reach a wider range of clients through offering bankruptcy and personal injury services. We’re committed to helping clients out of difficult situations, whether it be financial debt or after a serious accident.


We’re able to help you consider your options when you’re unable to pay your debts, including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. Because bankruptcy can be complicated, we can take the time to educate you on your unique situation and why a Chapter 7 or 13 may be the better option for you. When we demystify the legal system, we find that our clients are more at ease and empowered to make empowered decisions for themselves and their families. Our attorneys also have years of experience handling creditor harassment and abuse, wage garnishments, student loans, and more. We can protect you from further financial ruin and guide you towards a better future.

Personal Injury

Our personal injury attorneys have helped countless clients recover from injuries after accidents caused by negligence, including car accidents, dog bites, slip and falls, bus accidents, bicycle accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death, and pedestrian accidents. Injuries can be expensive to treat, but through our legal counsel we can help you achieve the compensation you deserve. We’ve helped clients recover millions in damages that include medical bills, lost wages and income, property damage, and pain and suffering.

What Sets Us Apart

Unlike larger law firms, your case will be handled by your attorney personally from the initial free consultation to filing your case, and straight to your discharge or settlement. You will not be passed over to a paralegal, law clerk, or an assistant to do your attorney’s work. Our attorneys directly answer their calls and take the time needed to deal with you personally and individually. When you visit our office, our attorneys will be ready to see you at your scheduled time once you arrive, and not a minute later. You will not be made to sit and wait for your attorney like you would in other offices. You’ll be given the attention and care you deserve in these difficult times.

Call our attorneys for legal representation in bankruptcy or personal injury legal matters today at (818) 805-1758. We’re proud to offer our services to clients in Los Angeles and Riverside.
