Introduction: ***VAKNIN LAW FIRM IS AVAILABLE FOR REMOTE CONSULTATIONS AND REMOTE WORK VIA PHONE, ZOOM,GOOGLE DUO, OR FACETIME*** Highly Experienced, Professional, Attentive, Personable, Responsive, Thorough, and Friendly. These are some of the terms my past clients have kindly used to describe me in their reviews of my services after working with my firm. I have been practicing Bankruptcy Law for my entire career as an Attorney. I have represented thousands of individuals all over the State of California in getting relief from their creditors. I have a tremendous amount of experience in this area. In my opinion, you’ve made the right choice in looking to hire a professional to represent you during this process and choosing the right advocate is equally important. If I were looking for someone to entrust with the future health of my financial life, I would want someone who really knows what they are doing. I know what I’m doing and there’s no substitute for experience. Another great thing about working with Vaknin Law Firm is that you will actually work with me, Jonathan Vaknin. I will handle your case from beginning to end. You will be able to pick up the phone or send an email and directly reach me. I look forward to having the opportunity to get to know you and to learn more about your unique situation to see how I can help. Review from former client (please visit my profile on Avvo to see more 5-star reviews): Couldn’t have asked for more! 5.0 stars February 21, 2018 What a great experience I had working with Jonathan Vaknin on my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. He is professional, attentive and very thorough. His experience and knowledge shows in all aspects of what he does. He really knows the law and what he is doing but what sets him apart is his warmth and understanding of his clients needs. I believe that anything needing an attorney can be stressful but he walked me through each step and made me feel supported the whole way through. He explained every detail and was extremely patient. His pricing was very reasonable especially for the time and attention that he gave to me and my case. I didn’t think that I would ever say that I would trust an attorney like “family” however in the case of Jonathan Vaknin I definitely do!

I was extremely stressed out about my financial situation and succumbed to the fact that I needed to file for bankruptcy. I Googled bankruptcy attorneys in San Fernando ended up messaging two firms off of the first sites that I clicked on. Mr. Vaknin replied and we set up a phone call that ended up lasting 30 to 40 minutes. In that time I made the decision that there was no reason to look anywhere else. I am extremely pleased with the decision I made. Mr. Vaknin is very easy to talk to well as understand. I would recommend him to anyone who is experiencing financial difficulties and looking to file for bankruptcy.

After my free consultation, I immediately knew I would be working with Jonathan on filing my bankruptcy. He is not only extremely knowledgeable and thorough, but he is also compassionate. Filing bankruptcy is a tough and mortifying experience. So, feeling comfortable with your attorney is very important. Jonathan was always honest, ethical and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. If you’re looking for an attorney that has your best interest in mind and you can trust, look no further. After your initial consultation with him, you’ll know he’s the right choice.

Vaknin Law Firm is amazing ! Jonathan is very easy to talk to & understanding! My husband & I filed for bankruptcy with Jonathan’s help & not once did we feel out of the loop, he always kept us informed. He would respond to our calls or emails the same day, never had to wait around. We thought filing for bankruptcy during COVID-19 was going to be difficult but Jonathan made it so smooth from start to finish! Can’t thank him enough!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Fair and Flexible! In most cases I charge a flat fee and am open to working out a payment plan. While there are fixed costs that I cannot negotiate, such as the court's filing fees, I'm open to help my clients tailor their fees and payment arrangements to something that works with their finances. I'm committed to creating a feasible and reasonable payment arrangement that will enable a new client to have an experienced and qualified attorney, such as myself, help them through a very important process.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The process begins with a consultation at no upfront cost to the potential client. The consultation can either be done by phone or in person. We'll take the time to confidentially discuss a potential client's situation, goals, and identify various strategies to help them obtain the debt relief they need. We'll formalize the attorney-client relationship if the potential client wants to proceed with representation. During that time we'll discuss our mutual responsibilities to one another, fees/costs, and we'll also work out a payment arrangement if it is necessary for the new client.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I’m always staying current by way of reading up on bankruptcy developments (legislatively/judicially) as well as taking continuing education courses.
