Bankruptcy

Mark J. Markus has been exclusively handling bankruptcy matters in California since 1991. "I wish I had come to you first" is a common statement heard from new clients.

Mark J. Markus is a certified specialist in bankruptcy law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. He has practiced exclusively bankruptcy law since 1991, representing debtors and creditors in bankruptcy chapters 7, 11, and 13 throughout California. AV-Rated by Martindale-Hubbell and A+ rated by the Better Business Bureau. The firm focuses on representation of individuals and businesses, consumer and nonconsumer cases, and creditor representation in the above bankruptcy chapters.

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

I love it. The problem of course, as with anything technical these days, is knowing which information is correct and which is not; and, knowing what information is missing. But clients who have some familiarity with the issues and process before having a consultation ask better questions and it makes it easier for me to serve their needs. My webpage and blog posts contain a wealth of information on all aspects of bankruptcy, so I have always been an advocate for people educating themselves.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

I have been practicing exclusively bankruptcy law since 1991. I am a Board Certified Specialist in bankruptcy law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. I serve on the boards of and been a member of numerous professional bankruptcy attorney associations. I am AV-Rated by Martindale-Hubbell.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

As I am a one-person firm, I am able to give more personalized service to my clients. I respond to inquiries at what I have been told is a ridiculously fast rate, and am the one and only point of contact for my clients from start to finish. I do all the work on the case so there are no paralegals or other staff to which work is delegated.

The above combined with my over 30 years of experience handling exclusively bankruptcy matters in California enable me to offer concierge level service at affordable prices.
