“Excellent Attorney”

I went to see Attorney Stuart Handelman at one of the most difficult times in my life. I was having some overwhelming financial issues that threaten my able ability to meet my basic needs. I felt trapped and horrible about being in that situation because I have always been able to pay my bills. I never thought that I would be meeting with a bankruptcy attorney and even cry profusely during our appointment. Mr. Handelman was so compassionate and understanding. He listened to my concerns which calmed my fears and patiently explained the entire process as well as my options. Meeting with him gave me the courage and knowledge I needed to confront the creditor to resolve the situation out of court. Although I did not file for bankruptcy Stuart Handelman helped me to take the shame out of the bankruptcy process and empowered me to take my life back. I would highly recommend Attorney Stuart Handelman if you are considering file bankruptcy.

“The Right Choice”

Mr. Handelman was an excellent choice in picking our attorney. He is very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail and made sure we were understanding the entire process. The process was not at all as I expected. Stuart made everything move smoothly and with no hassle. We had our consultation with him and he gave us choices and with no pressure at all. I will refer Mr. Handelman to anyone needing his expertise.

“Filing for Bankruptcy”

With my very 1st phone call to Mr. Handelman’s office I felt reassured about my financial situation. This feeling was vaildated upon my first one on one meeting with Mr. Handelman. He was kind, talked with as if we’d known each other for a time, rather than just meeting and he explained everything in terms in which I was able to understand right from the get go. Each step and throughout the process I felt better than I had in months and knew that the decision I had made to #1 seek out legal assistance was the right thing to do in my situation and #2 that I had made the right choice in choosing an attorney.
At my Meeting of Creditors, once again Mr. Handelman went though the steps of the proceedings and reviewed my paper work with me. I now feel that a huge weight has been lifted and I can make a new fresh start.

“Compliments and Recommendation for Mr. Stuart Handelman and Staff”

I have always been extremely satisfied and grateful for the services provided by Mr. Handelman and his staff from my first visit to his office for a consultation to the bankruptcy filing and beyond. Specifically I worked initially with Ms. Kelly Smith and subsequently with Ms. Jean Huang.

Their professionalism was first-rate in all areas (providing information, answering my questions, requesting the necessary documents from me, having me sign off on the necessary forms, etc.). I always felt I was in good hands with this firm and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking debt relief.

“Highly Recommended!”

We highly recommend Stuart Handelman to anyone who is looking for a professional, outstanding lawyer!  He helped us through our chapter 7 bankruptcy more than three years ago and made the process very easy! Even though we filed our bankruptcy over three years ago, we needed advise today and he was there to help us and answer our questions. He is very trustworthy, knowledgeable and friendly!

I was incredibly hesitant to go down the bankruptcy route. Mr. Handelman listened to all of my questions and answered them all while maintaining a professional and confidential manner. It really helped to make the process as painless as possible. It took a few appointments before I was ready to commit to this and I am glad that I went with Mr. Handelman for my bankruptcy case. I would recommend him to anyone considering this process.

Instantly, I felt that everything was going to be okay after consulting with him. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. His expert advice put me at ease; I knew I was in good hands.

“Owner”

Mr. Handelman was very professional, and helpful for me. I was new to the concept of bankruptcy and, no matter how many questions I had, they all were answered. From the moment I walked in for my consultation to the time I walked out of court I felt that I had good representation for my chapter 7, and was very confident about all the aspects of my bankruptcy.

“Outstanding Attorney”

I was very nervous about my situation and Mr. Handelman made me feel at ease with everything. I didn’t understand some things and Mr. Handelman did not have a problem explaining them to me in a way that made it easier for me to understand. It’s been a year since my case was discharged and I still feel welcome to ask him for advice.

“Excellent Attorney”

During a very difficult time in my life I needed the help of an attorney to help me deal with some financial issues, some of my making and some that were not exactly mine.

I saw a couple of attorneys and it just did not feel right. I felt to put it bluntly ashamed and the way I was being treated; their attitude made it more so.

I learned of Mr. Handelman from one of my customers and made an appointment to meet him. His staff from the very first day was helpful. He was immediately responsive while not being pushy and went over every detail of my issue and all of my options and why each option had a pro and a con.

On the day of court apperance he was there and was reassuring, went over with me the process that was about to take place and before I knew it it was over!

Approximately a year later, I had an instance where I needed clarification regarding one of my accounts, he called me back immediately and broke it down for me and made me feel welcomed and not at all bothered that a year later I was calling him.

I have recommended him many times and when I learned of this website, I felt comfortable posting my thoughts on his service as I truly believe he can help you if you need his legal assistance.

“Excellent Lawyer”

Stuart did a great job, when other lawyers told me they could only do a chapter 13, Stuart took the time to go over my info. He clearly explained my options. I’m very happy with Stuart and will recommend him very highly. Thanks again Stuart B. Handelman.

“Wonderful group of Attorneys to work with!”

I wanted to thank you all for helping me file for Chapter 7. I was completely overwhelmed the first day I went in to your office for the free consultation. However, after talking to Kelly, she alleviated my anxiety and I started to feel better. As I moved forward with filing, Kelly was amazing in responding back to my emails as well as the office staff. Moving closer to my court date,Ms. Huang helped make sure I knew and understood that I wasn’t going to be thrown out of my house the moment I discharged my debt. That was a relief to know I had time to find an apartment quickly yet efficiently without stress. I have now found an apartment suitable for my children and I and will be moving in the next 3 weeks to avoid any issues.

Finally, at court, Stuart Handleman was professional yet, very easy going, friendly and supportive. Due to horror stories I have heard from collegues and acquaintances in their dealings with different law offices, this type of behavior from all of you and your office was something I totally did not expect.

Thank you again for easing my transition during this stumbling block I have encountered. I feel very relieved that it is over but most importantly, relieved that I did it with a great group of lawyers. I will indeed recommend you all to further clients who ever inquire of any bankruptcy attorney.

Wishing you all a lovely remainder of the week and mutiple success at your offices.

“Professional and compassionate”

When my world was shattered by the market crash of 2008, I didn’t know what direction to turn. My career imploded, my investments melted into nothing and I didn’t know how I was going to pay my ever mounting bills, let alone keep a roof over my head.
I turned to the Handelman group for relief. Stuart was there guiding me through every step of the process.
He treated me with dignity and respect, even at my lowest point. I would highly recommend him for anyone considering this process!
