Schatzman & Schatzman P.A.
I retained Mr. Schatzman in the middle of a complicated case that involved bankruptcy, foreclosure and condominium association court related action. Jeff handled the case with a great amount of skill and expertise. All of his legal decisions were based on thoroughly researched fact and tempered with the client’s financial practicalities. He successfully guided me through a maze of court orders and legal hearings that lasted over two years. I was lucky to have Jeff litigate this case for me. His effort made a huge difference in the outcome of these legal proceedings. Mr. Schatzman is the kind of professional you encounter only rarely nowadays. A man who takes personal pride in his work and also cares about his clients: he always goes the extra mile. I highly recommend him to anyone who has legal issues with bankruptcy and, or foreclosure.

Thank you very much for your legal services and guidance through my bankruptcy proceedings. You and your staff turned an extremely difficult situation into one which was both understandable and manageable. Your manner and courtesy made it easy to discuss very personal matters and your assistance in keeping me organized and on-track was invaluable. Your advice proved to be correct and allowed me to go through the process with dignity and to finally put this nigthmare behind me. I commend you enough for how you helped me during this very stressful time.

Tips & Advices
It is prudent, even after all outcomes have been adjudicated, that clients follow-up with their attorneys to ensure the specifics are known, conditions are met and the client is on the right path toward resolving debts.
A common result of bankruptcy filing is a payment plan that is created to eventually discharge the debts that brought you to court in the first place. You should have a conversation with your attorney on exactly what debts you may have discharged, or otherwise reorganized.
There are requirements for appearing at different points in the case. For instance, you will need to be present for the meeting with creditors. If the proceeding become litigious, your appearance may be required. However, filers are not often required to appear in court for every step.
You will need a large amount of documentation, including those that establish your: income, dependents, marital status and work status; previous tax filings; and debts (mortgage, student loans, car loan).
Searching online for a bankruptcy attorney will often turn up results for attorneys in your area. Also ask attorneys you know if they have any to recommend.
