California Law Office, P.C. is a professional corporation located in Torrance, California.
California Law Office, P.C. focuses on representing clients in bankruptcy proceedings. From the simplest chapter 7 case to the most complex chapter 11 case, California Law Office, P.C. welcomes your business.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Bankruptcy law offers many rewards, including enough complexity to be interesting, and the potential to change lives for the better. It is very satisfying to see the burden of a heavy debt load lifted from the shoulders of my clients. It is also satisfying to see abusive creditors brought to heel by the bankruptcy system.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Many resources are available online for clients to educate themselves about the bankruptcy process. Nonetheless, there is also a lot of inaccurate information out there, so I encourage clients to ask questions about the bankruptcy process. My goal is to answer questions as clearly and as effectively as possible, cutting through the legal mumbo-jumbo as much as possible.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

The bankruptcy process is difficult to navigate due to myriad requirements, both substantive and procedural. That is why an attorney's guidance is so essential.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Most clients wisely choose to hire an attorney to represent them through the bankruptcy process.
