We Put Our Clients First
  • The absolute best when it comes to handling bankruptcy!
    They do not pass any judgment upon you - they are simply there to help. I found them to be honest, reliable and timely. The support staff is extremely friendly and very informative. The lawyers have great interpersonal skills and are very upfront about the costs, the process and timelines. When the day came, one of the lawyers accompanied us to court and thoroughly explained the process and what next steps would take place. It felt like forever when the court finally issued the discharge, but when it finally was, it was a huge relief. We were able to keep our car and got the rest of the debt handled through court. The whole process was very smooth. I highly recommend their services if you need a bankruptcy lawyer!

  • Fantastic firm!!!! trustworthy, reliable, knowledgeable and always available to help.
    Fantastic firm!!!! trustworthy, reliable, knowledgeable and always available to help. My sister and I were given the opportunity to meet this wonderful firm while they volunteered at one of the library branches. We will forever be grateful for that day, as without their assistance my sister and I wouldn't have known what to do. They are always available through phone or e-mail and didn't even charge us anything - when I know there are many other firms out there that charge for all of this. The guidance and expertise that both Kian and John have are impeccable! Thank you for everything.

  • I couldn't have asked for a better team to represent me.
    I couldn't have asked for a better team to represent me. Although, it was a difficult decision to come to, I'm happy and filled with relief that I had a great team (especially Kian Mottahedeh) representing me. THANK YOU SM Law Group.

  • Kian was extremely helpful and put me at ease throughout the whole process.
    Going through a bankruptcy can appear to be a frightening and embarrassing experience. But sometimes that's what needs to be done. I was recommended SM Law by an online LA lawyers' site. Kian was extremely helpful and put me at ease throughout the whole process. He even helped me out when a creditor still tried to collect from me after my bankruptcy case was resolved. If anyone has to unfortunately go through a bankruptcy, I highly recommend Kian and SM Law!

  • Anytime we emailed he always responded quickly, any concern we had, he made sure to provide detail and in words we could understand.

    If you're looking for a bankruptcy lawyer look no further, I called several and had many consultations. At one point we were about to pay triple the amount of what SM charges. I'm so glad we found SM Law Group. Kian meet with us on a Saturday which to us was very shocking he accommodated us, which is very important. We live miles away and  he was able to do everything VIA email, phone after our first sit down. The receptionist are extremely nice they were always very professional and a pleasure to talk with. Kian was very knowledgeable. No question was a stupid question. Anytime we emailed he always responded quickly, any concern we had he made sure to provide detail and in words we could understand. I have absolutely zero complaints on Kian I'm so extremely glad we went with him. The price is way cheaper then anyone else. Amazing payment plans! Thank you Kian, for everything.

  • They touched based frequently and we never felt alone in the process.
    Kian Mottahedeh and SM Law Group handled a bankruptcy for our family member and they took care of everything. They touched based frequently and we never felt alone in the process. They were recommended by the LA County Bar Association referral line and they reached out right away and made an appointment for the next day.  They were responsive, efficient and understandable. Always willing to dumb it down until I understood the process.
