CHAPTER 13: My chapter 13 clients get the absolute lowest monthly bankruptcy plan payments possible under bankruptcy law because I am the Bay Area's go-to authority on the means test, which is the income and expense calculations that form the basis for most chapter 13 bankruptcy payment plans. My clients get the best repayment plans because of my expertise in the complex rules of structuring and prioritizing the payments to creditors.

My clients get the best bankruptcy outcomes because I fight hard for my client's rights.
