Law Office of Christopher Hewitt

Firm Overview

I am a bankruptcy attorney currently residing in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area and I serve all surrounding cities in Riverside County. I exclusively practice bankruptcy law but also do debt settlement and FDCPA cases which are all related to a debtors practice. I am also licensed in all of the four federal districts in California so I will take cases from anywhere in California as long as you have access to a fax or scanner. My focus is to help people rebuild their financial lives through bankruptcy or becoming debt free from direct negotiations with creditors. I negotiate pay offs on 2nd mortgages and unsecured credit debt as well as deficiencies on vehicles that have been repossessed. I strip 2nd liens in Chapter 13 bankruptcies. I discharge all credit card debt in Chapter 7 cases that I file.
