Maria N.

Personal Bankruptcy Attorney

Just before the COVID-19 i was just seeing my earnings go to payments i have been making in years and never see my credit card balance come down. I consulted with a big bankruptcy firm in downtown San Diego and agreed to work with them. However i was not satisfied with the consultation so i continues to research more until i discovered John Given who made me feel at ease, very respectful, professional and so easy to work with. The whole process was an easy job made possible with John protecting my interest! I highly recommend him!

Thank you for the kind review. Your 341a hearing was one of my first telephonic appearances as a result of COVID19. I am glad the BK courts continue to operate through this pandemic. I look forward to seeing your case completed in short order. - John

Personal Bankruptcy Attorney

John was very helpful with answering any questions I had. His demeanor was pleasant and very likeable. He set a date to follow up in a week and he did that, again answering any questions I had with professionalism and a friendly, supportive quality that allowed me to find him extremely approachable. While I ultimately opted not to use his services, i would highly recommend John to any one seeking his counsel.

Personal Bankruptcy Attorney

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!
