Customer's Testimonials & Reviews

Michael is a great lawyer. We had a very sticky and complex bankruptcy and he handled it with the utmost care and concern and respect that we could ask for. When he walked in the courtroom he was the only lawyer with a happy face on him that made a big difference which made us very comfortable at that time. Due to the sticky situation. Tried to purchase a home if it was it for Michael's expertise, our loan would have been turned down. Because he was so specific and what he did it allowed us to purchase a new home Which we never thought we could ever do again. Thanks again to Michael Zapin A great lawyer.


I was very depressed with my financial situation after having come out from a divorce. I thought bankruptcy was going to finish me. Boy was I wrong!

Mr. Zapin spent a significant amount of time explaining the process to me, spoke about what I could achieve through the process and very accurately predicted the issues I would face in my case.

My expectations were far exceeded by the quality of representation I received and the fresh start I got as a result.
