I recently went through the bankruptcy process and can't thank the law firm of Michael Berger enough for getting me through it all. Sofya Davtya, Yathida Nepa and Jennifer Phan are experienced, knowledgeable and very patient in helping me get though a painful time. Like many, I found myself deep in debt and caught in the housing crisis. The decision to file was not an easy one and I""m thankful to have found such an experienced and compassionate team to work with. They are very detailed and thorough and will patiently explain all the options available to you. I highly recommend this firm.

During the 2008 crash my business in Beverly Hills took a big hit. That coupled with an unreasonable landlord made it insurmountable to better my situation. Yearly rent raises to 30k per month plus payroll and overhead dictated my future. The fact that I was able to exist as long as I did was a testament to my abilities as a leader and to manage stress.\nFinally the time came when I was forced to make the decision to declare bankruptcy. I was recommended to Michael Berger who not only stopped the attacks I was struggling to endure, he also provided me with an exit strategy that has now allowed me to bounce back quickly to be even more successful in business than I was before!! He knows all of the players in town that you have to deal with and treats your case with logic and sensitivity. This is not a failure but indeed a new beginning thanks to Michael Berger and my friend for the referral.

I have seen Michael Berger in court, and he is awesome. He saved me $235,000.00! We had an evidentiary hearing before United States Bankruptcy Court Judge Geraldine Mund on the value of one of my investment properties on Friday, March 16, 2012. The creditor, JPMorgan Chase Bank wanted to value my property at $910,000 but we were trying to get that down to $675,000.\n\n \n\nMr. Berger and I worked together as a team, along with his Associate Attorney Michael Avanesian. We prepared our witnesses thoroughly, including an appraiser, a real estate broker, a structural engineer and a contractor. Mr. Berger got great testimony from each one of our witnesses, and he did a great job cross- examining the lender?s appraiser. Mr. Berger succeeded in keeping out evidence that the lender tried to introduce at the last minute. Judge Mund called what Chase?s lawyer tied to do ?trial by ambush? and refused to admit the so called new evidence. I never even had to testify. From top to bottom, Mr. Berger made sure there were no gaps left.\n\n \n\nThe appraisers were both good, but Mr. Berger was so convincing at discrediting the creditor?s appraiser that Judge Mund began to directly question the appraiser. At the end of the trial, Judge Mund said that both attorneys were ?excellent lawyers.? However, she then agreed with Mr. Berger on every single point and ruled 100% in my favor.\n\n \n\nMr. Berger convinced Judge Mund that our appraiser was more experienced and more credible. Mr. Berger convinced Judge Mund that the bank appraiser?s method of subtracting $100,000.00 from the value of a property that needed $200,000.00 in repairs did not make any sense. In her ruling, Judge Mund repeated Mr. Berger?s arguments. If you need someone to fight for you and win against big creditors like JP Morgan Chase Bank, then you need Michael Jay Berger and his law firm to represent you. He did a great job for me.\n\n

Going through bankruptcy yet alone entering a law office is a very stressful time. But the Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger dispelled any of the anxiety I incurred during the toughest decision I had in my life, which was filing for Ch 13. During our initial meeting Mr. Berger was very professional and courteous. He understood our family situation and walked us through the stages of Ch 13. He was very attentive and patient to the many questions we had about the whole bankruptcy process. Our point of contacts from beginning till end was Sofya and Yathida and they made it as painless as possible. None of my many emails and phone calls went unanswered and was quickly responded to by email or by phone. These ladies deserve a raise. From all the scary stories you hear about filing for bankruptcy, Michael, Sofya and Yathida made this filing as smooth as can be. Thank you Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger for caring and helping me through this tough obstacle in my life.

Sofya Davtyan and her paralegal with Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger are truly the best. Sofya walked us through the process and was very responsive to all of our inquiries. During our initial meeting with her, we also had the pleasure of meeting with Michael Berger. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered our questions re dischargeability of tax debt. We recently received our discharge notice. Thank you Sofya and Michael for an excellent work. \nFYI: the quote you'll obtain from this law firm for such a high quality of work is nowhere to be found. You deal with attorneys and all your legal inquiries are answered by attorneys vs other law firms where 99% of the time you only see and talk to a paralegal.

\nI was recommended this law firm by a friend of a friend. I had never had anything like this happen to me and was scared and concerned and full of questions. Attorney Minha Rhee was patient and helpful, guiding me through my options and keeping me informed throughout the process. Bankruptcy was difficult to go through personally, but the help I received from the staff at this law firm made my load a little less heavy, and were able to re-assure me that this process was the right step to take in my situation.

Michael Jay Berger and his staff did a phenomenal job in handling our bankruptcy case. Initially our situation qualified us for a Chapter 13; however, as our circumstances changed we then qualified for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Mr. Berger went through all the necessary arrangements from completing the legal documents to ensuring appointments and our responsibilities were met. He did all this without missing a beat.\n\nHe and his staff walked us through all the proceedings including documentation, on-line mandatory certifications, setting up meetings, being present at all court appearances, etc. At one point, one of his staff members (who was our primary contact) had to take a leave of absence. Her leave was from the workplace only. She gave us her personal cell number to contact her if we had any questions or concerns. You don?t receive this type of commitment and loyalty from very many people or firms. In my opinion, she went above and beyond. Mr. Berger met us on a Saturday (for our convenience) regarding procedural issues to which we had questions. Every person that we dealt with was more than capable of handling all inquires.\n\nIf you want to have a stress free (as much as possible under these circumstances) bankruptcy case with a team that will guide you throughout the processes, then Michael Jay Berger is the right person for you. His cost is more than reasonable for the amount of time and work that was put into a successful closure to our situation. I cannot stress how helpful and satisfied we are through this brief testimonial. Do yourself a favor, seek Mr. Berger?s help you will not be disappointed. A true professional team?\n\nThe Cunningham's

Anyone filing for bankruptcy understands the embarrassment, humiliation and even depression one goes through. For me it was years of collections calls, threats, garnishments and fear my employer would find out and fire me. I went to two other law firms for initial consultations and was told they could not help me. Then I visited the Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger and you can imagine how joyful I was when the attorney said they would accept my case. I wanted to cry but held back the tears. The entire staff - lawyers, paralegals and assistants were very, very professional and treated me with the utmost respect. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Michael J. Berger to anyone who needs a respectful, honest attorney to handle their case.

Michael Jay Berger's firm quickly put me at ease when I had to face the inevitable circumstances of filing Chapter 7. They showed me my options, explained the entire process step by step and quickly acted on inquires during the entire process. From the lawyers to the assistants I can only speak highly of them all. They gave me exacting specifics to the information I needed to provide and acted quickly and thoroughly on my case with that information.

I used Georgeann at MJB and have no complaints. She was assisted by Jennifer who always got back to me ASAP with any questions I had if Georgeann couldn't return the call(s) herself. Someone was always there for me. I never felt ""alone"" during the process. The office staff was always friendly. They have to be doing something right to keep that big Beverly Hills office up. And you don't do that by \r\ndefrauding people of their money or lying to them. The fees were very reasonable. I went to Georgeann because another friend had just gone BK with then as well. He looked around to many lawyers before hand and I trusted him and was not disappointed at all with the services provided. My regret was that I waited a few months more than I should have. I had many altercations with very aggressive ""crack head"" process servers. They have little regard to the laws or you as a person, screaming for you at your home door and other ways to get your attention. I even called the police to my home when one server claimed to be an ""officer of the law"". You don't wan to mess with any of these ""criminal loonies"" they will harass you unmercifully! So, if your considering filing go to Georgeann and let her take the ""hits"" for you to relieve some of that stress. You owe it to yourself as you're already in a lot of drama.

I used Georgeann at MJB and have no complaints. She was assisted by Jennifer who always got back to me ASAP with any questions I had if Georgeann couldn't return the call(s) herself. Someone was always there for me. I never felt ""alone"" during the process. The office staff was always friendly. They have to be doing something right to keep that big Beverly Hills office up. And you don't do that by \r\ndefrauding people of their money or lying to them. The fees were very reasonable. I went to Georgeann because another friend had just gone BK with then as well.

I had researched a multitude of law firms and had spoken preliminarily with three when I met with Michael Jay Berger.\n\nIt was a time of painful crisis for me and I had to have things handled prompty, efficiently, thoroughly - with sensitivity and finesse. Michael quickly grasped and assessed my particular situation, then worked with me to obtain the optimum resolution. Each member of his staff I worked with proved equally knowledgeable, thorough, competent and courteous. \n\nThis process has been completed over a period of seven months and as smoothly as humanly possible. My heartfelt thanks to Michael, Georgeann and Jennifer!\nI recommend all of you without hesitation.

We were in trouble and needed help. We knew what we had to do, but hated to go through Bankruptcy. First, we made an appointment with an different attorney and spent $600 listening to Bible stories and the Constitutional rights that it was our ""God given right to file"". But we were only eligible for a Chapter 7. \r\n\r\nThere was too much at stake, our home, our business, our inheritance properties. We were at a loss. So I found Michael's office on Citysearch with rave reviews and thought ""Why not, it was free to check them out"". \r\n\r\nWe made an appointment and met with Sofya. She was warm, but all business (thank goodness). We answered her questions and she figured out how to get us through a Chapter 13. Eureka!!! Someone with a clue of how to REALLY help us. We supplied the information she requested and answered her emails promptly. And in return, she walked us through every step of the process. Went to bat for us when the court wanted to up our payments. She really understood our position and what we needed. Kept us informed every step of the way. Gave us the instructions as to what we needed to do. Kept us on track. It was as perfect of an experience as bankruptcy can be. We didn't feel like failures, she made it easy and put us in a position to salvage our lives and our livelyhood. Can not thank her enough. \r\n\r\nWe met Michael, a perfectly charming gentleman and felt comfortable that our case was in good hands with his firm. \r\n\r\nWe would highly recommend their services. We are so blessed that they had the know how to help us. \r\n\r\nWe were quoted a retainer and there were no ""hidden fees"". Just a straight forward, up front experience. Perfect in every way!!!\r\n\r\n

I don't know about you, but the recession hit me hard when I was laid off from my long-time job in 2008. After 2 years I found full-time work but by early 2011 I was struggling under an enormous burden of debt that I could not see a way out of. \n\nI ran in to Georgeann Nicol at a social event and instantly connected with her. Not long afterwards I send her a thumbnail of my debts and income... asking was there a way out for me?\n\nShe set up a free consultation and showed me what my options were, with up and down sides to all. (Side note: even directed me to the free parking nearby!)\n\nI decided to go with her services, and she was graceful and supportive the whole way through. All of my inquiries were handled immediately, which really helped me through the process. She made me feel valued and worthwhile, when I had been feeling pretty low.\n\nProbably like you, I'd worked all my life and never expected to be in this financial condition, and once in it, didn't know what to do. Thank heavens for meeting Georgeann!\n\nNot even 6 months after our initial consultation my debts have been discharged and I have a bright new future. \n\nThank you Georgeann!!

Still celebrating the amazing victory won for me by Michael Jay Berger's firm and specifically by partner Georgeann Nicol.

Georgeann's direct, professional manner helped me prepare for our day in court. Her compassion and knowledge guided me through to a most delightful victory. I'm grateful for the support and encouragement I felt each step of the way and highly recommend the firm of Michael Jay Berger.

Both Georgeann and Jennifer were nothing short of amazing. Georgeann sincerely cares about her clients and their financial future. All of my questions and concerns were answered quickly and Georgeann always made me feel like everything was going to be okay. My case was slightly more complicated than average but she spent the time to prep me and the process went smoothly. Let's be honest BK is not something we want to do or is in any way fun but I actually looked forward to speaking with Georgeann and knew she'd always make me feel better. Her assistant Jennifer is totally on top of it and let nothing slip through the cracks. These guys are the real deal.

I'm a 27 year old college graduate who was forced to file chapter 7. I am familiar with the procedure and was going to file myself but decided to be 'safe' and have someone do it for me. \n\nI gave Berger's office a 2 star rating because my case did go through, but not without the typical BS that I have come to loath about lawyer offices.\n\nWhen I called him up on the phone, I was told the fee would be $1,600 for my incredibly simple chapter 7. I said ok, fair enough, so I head over. \n\nThey do a bait and switch, which is common for bankruptcy firms. There is one wealthy owner, in this case Michael, who meets with you for no more then 5 minutes. This is the only time you will ever see or speak to Michael. After the 5 minute exchange, he hands you off to one of his less paid para legals. I sat with this paralegal for 30 minutes while she did the paperwork, and then I was done. \n\nAt the end of this 30 minutes (and after I had already paid $1600 cash) I was told that the $1600 DID NOT include the $300 filing fee. At this point, since I had already spent the 30 minutes watching the para legal do the work, and had already paid the $1600, I didn't really have a choice other then to go borrow $300 more. \n\nThat day I emailed Michael about it. His response was literally that 1) The $300 filing fee is clearly stated on his WEBSITE, and that 2) I should stay with him, I'll be happy. \n\nThis is just a clear example of both incompetence and shady business practices. When someone calls you on the phone and asks how much it is going to cost, you tell them how much it is going to cost. Period. \n\nA month later I had my 341 meeting where a random worker showed up from his office, sat with me while the trustee asked me to verify my name, and that the debt was mine, then dismissed me. 3 minutes total. \n\nThat was the sum of the work done for me. To review- 1) 5 minute meeting with Michael, 2) 30 minutes with para legal 3) 5 minute meeting at 341. \n\nIt should also be noted that a month into the process I received a letter from a random creditor that did not appear on my credit report, who was demanding money. I was told by Michael's office that it would cost me an additional $126 to take care of it. $26 of that is the cost the court charges to add a creditor, $100 is what Michael thinks is fair to charge to spend 2 minutes printing out a piece of paper and mailing it. I ended up taking care of the creditor on my own without any problems; refusing to pay $126.\n\nI am not surprised that Michael has a lot of positive reviews. I think that many people don't know how much work is involved, what to expect, and they are in a terrible situation to begin with so they don't question anything. \n\nToday I got the discharge notice along with an email from Michael's office which caused me to write this review. \n\nAttached to my discharge notice was a note asking me to write a review on CitySearch with the following text under it- \n\n""If you do this favor for me, you will be helping to put food on my table and the tables of my employees. I will gladly return the favor to you, whenever you need my help.""\n\nI think it is incredibly ironic in multiple ways that he would write something like this. For one, I don't think getting food on his table is an issue. He's a Ferrari owner (complete with a model of his car in the office), has a Beverly Hills location, and I'd say compared to his clients who are declaring bankruptcy, he's the last person to be worried about getting food on the table. \n \nI should say its not just him, there are obviously countless bankruptcy firms that run similar operations. I guess the moral of the story is remember that they aren't there to help you, they are there to make money, regardless of what they may try to convince you of otherwise. \n\nI would never suggest this firm to anyone.

I would recommend Michael Berger to anyone considering a bankruptcy. I had called another office before calling him and would have had to wait a whole month before the lawyer could see me. Michael, on the other hand, was immediately available to meet with me and my husband and was very informative and helpful. We worked with Sofya Davtian who was wonderful and patient. Our case was somewhat complicated and long and they helped with everything. They were very diligent and non judgmental. We even decided to switch from a ch 13 to a 7 after they had done so much work on the 13 case already, and they were always patient, understanding, and courteous towards us. I really appreciate all their help.

A hard and dedicated worker my entire life, two years ago I faced the shock of becoming a disabled person incapable of working any longer. Monthly debts such as credit cards, utilities, loans which were previously well within my budget were slowly eating away my savings.\n\nWith my savings running out, one evening I attempted to create a budget; I listed my monthly income and subtracted all my monthly expenses. Shockingly, I was coming up negative, in the red. \n\nRevisiting the budget with different scenarios, trying to trim as much as I could, I just could not come into the positive or the black any month.\n\nWith the shock of realizing my finances were in disarray and there was nothing, nothing I could do in the short-term to fix it I was scared. I never would have thought I was in a position where bankruptcy would be my best opinion. However, there I was contemplating bankruptcy.\n\nIt was late at night and I could not sleep. During the afternoon, I had tried to contact several bankruptcy attorneys, but I was only able to reach legal secretaries or paralegals. All of whom were pessimistic, insensitive, and bleak regarding my situation. I remember one of the paralegals laughed when I indicated my bankruptcy was probably on the easier end of things and probably very straight forward. She then began to quote me an outrageous sum for my case.\n\nDiscouraged and unable to sleep. I found Michael Berger's law firm online. On the website was Mr. Berger's e-mail address. I e-mailed Mr. Berger that night detailing my situation, my concerns, my worries. \n\nFeeling that I left out details in the first e-mail that night, I sent another e-mail in the middle of the night detailing more of my situation.\n\nMorning came, I hadn't slept. Promptly at 8:00 A.M. I unexpectedly receive a phone-call. To my relief and gratitude, it was Mr. Michael Berger himself. He was confident my situation was not only going to be manageable; it would be very cost-effective. He was not only confident but more importantly he was sympathetic regarding my situation. I can't express enough how grateful I was to receive a reassuring phone-call after a late night of being so frantic and worried.\n\nThat was just the beginning. Throughout the entire process Mr. Berger's team--Ms. Nicole and Ms. Phan in particular--were meticulous, understanding, and compassionate. \n\nWhen it finally came to my bankruptcy hearing, it was a simple, ""yes,"" and,""no,"" to a few questions; Mr. Berger's staff had appropriately submitted all documents necessary and promptly to the court. The judge himself was impressed.\n\nFor the compassionate, sympathetic, professional, meticulous, and cost-effective approach Mr. Berger's office took regarding my situation I highly, highly recommend his office for your legal needs.\n\nI really cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am to Mr. Berger and his staff. I highly, highly recommend his law firm!

I was a MJB client in a bankruptcy case. But then a class action lawsuit, loosely related to the bankruptcy side of things was filed. And instead of continuing to work on his clients behalf MJB hitched his horse to the class action and let those greedy scum do all the work. Instead of pursuing a favorable outcome for his clients, he folded and let the class action take effect. At one point during the bankruptcy proceedings, when it became clear were funds available for recovery for his clients, he refused to put in any effort what so ever to help out. He even put the burden of filing an objection on behalf of his clients on to the clients themselves. I even directly asked him about this, I asked him, as a paying client, to file SOMETHING on my behalf. He flatly refused. He did this becasue he already had received payment for his ""services"" and pursuing the bankruptcy case any farther for the benefit of his paying clients would have been to hard for him and taken time away from his marathon running hobby. Do not use MJB services for anything, unless you want a lazy lawyer who will quit at the first sign of a quick conclusion.
