From the initial phone call and in-person consult, John had a very calm, nonjudgmental demeanor. I talked to a few other attorneys prior to deciding to work with John. Bankruptcy is a difficult, embarrassing, and sometimes confusing process. As a single practitioner and small business owner, John gives his clients the personalized attention that I think is needed for bankruptcy. He was readily available via phone, email, and even in-person meetings to explain the process and set expectations, answer any questions, and alleviate our concerns. He even helped with slightly unrelated financial/legal issues (tenant/landlord issues, rental security deposit questions, etc.) Other larger bankruptcy firms seemed to not care so much about the individuals they were serving and often advertised the bigger, well-known attorneys to reel clients in but actually had less experienced attorneys or even paralegals/interns do the majority of work on their cases. Some firms don't even have an attorney attend the bankruptcy hearing with you, which I would imagine to be nerve-wracking for the client. You want to make sure the paperwork is completed and filed correctly, you are well-prepared for your hearing, and that the process runs seamlessly, so you can have a quicker path to a fresh financial start. I would not have felt as confident about the outcome if I were to go through this process alone or have a junior level attorney or intern work on my case. John was great to work with, and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering making such a tough decision. It is a very impactful decision, so while there are bankruptcy attorneys available for a fraction of the cost, I think it is worth the larger investment to have a caring, accessible, and experienced attorney like John on your side to ensure a higher chance of having a positive outcome and seamless process to restarting your financial future. We began the process in December, attended our hearing in January, and received notification of our discharge in March. We are already working to rebuild our credit, which John also provided advice on how to best go about the post-bankruptcy rebuild. Thank you, John!

Had heard an ad on the radio for bankruptcy lawyers in the area, and had decided to file for ch.7 bankruptcy after finding out we were expecting our first baby. I had racked up quite a bit of debt after the passing of my mother 2 years prior, and we wanted (NEEDED) a fresh start financially. I did a quick search online and came across a few lawyers, but Tamara was the only one with a consistent positive review - on top of being very quick with her response! She was very upfront about costs, procedures and was always available to answer and address and questions or concerns. Everything was done via e-mail, text, and over the phone - even our first official "meeting" was via FaceTime. It was so convenient and easy work with Tamara, and she never made me feel like it was overwhelming or I was in over my head. My case was discharged this past week, and now I'm just waiting for the final paperwork to let me know everything is completely finished. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for any legal advice or help! She's the best and so great at what she does!

Working with Northpark Bankruptcy and Attorney Todd Warshof was a really great experience. Bankruptcy can be a very scary process when you do not know what to expect. Todd was extremely helpful. He responded to all of my 1,000 e-mails and concerns promptly, with constant reassurance that everything will be ok. He took care of any and all of my requests, and I never once felt like I was making a mistake. He made the Bankruptcy process as quick and painless as possible. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that is looking into bankruptcy.

We worked with Mark Miller and Attorney Larissa Lazarus when it came to filing bankruptcy. They were very patient and understanding, as well as willing to explain everything in terms that my wife could understand. This made is simple, precise, and easy process to go through.

Fanny is a great bankruptcy attorney, she made a difficult situation very smooth and comfortable. She spent a lot of time explaining to us in details everything about the process. She was always very prompt in her communication with us via email or telephone. Before I knew it, we where done and out of the process and got the fresh start we needed! I refer all my friends and family to her.

Jeff Larkin is a genuine, caring, and competent bankruptcy attorney. From our first consultation, Attorney Larkin went far beyond my expectations by taking a very thorough history of my complicated financial background by spending 90 minutes with me. That was before I even hired him. That painstaking history for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy for credit card debt, later gave me an exemption of $26,000....Another attorney would not have been interested in what brought me to the point of bankruptcy, thereby missing vital information, but it was Jeff Larkin’s keen eye that found a loophole saving me thousands of dollars. I trusted Jeff Larkin and he never let me down. He was personally available to me by phone, text, and email and he always got back to me quickly. I could go on and on about Jeff — his services are exemplary, for sure — but do yourself a favor, and see for yourself.

About

With almost 42 years of experience I've personally filed more bankruptcies in San Diego county than any other lawyer or law firm.

About

In my bankruptcy practice I do everything from start to finish – I handle my own client meetings and I personally complete and file the bankruptcy petition and schedules. At my law office my clients are never left in the hands of paralegals or assistants, they have contact directly with me and only me. At other law firms or law offices often the client only gets to meet with staff and never even gets access to an attorney. I do not agree with this method of bankruptcy practice. To file for bankruptcy is a very personal choice that requires a lot of information and the ability to ask questions and get answers from an experience bankruptcy attorney, which is exactly what I offer in my practice.

About

I have 33 years of experience representing individuals and companies considering filing for Chapter 7, Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection in San Diego. Aside from my bankruptcy representation, I also do real estate law work and real estate brokerage.
