The Law Offices of Michael E. Zapin

After spending several years working in a small to mid-size general practice/commercial litigation/bankruptcy boutique, Michael Zapin founded The Law Offices of Michael E. Zapin in 1997. Initially located in the heart of downtown New York City, the firm handled:

  • Consumer bankruptcy matters
  • Complex commercial litigation
  • Real estate litigation
  • Commercial collection matters

(Our clients appreciate that when they come to us for consumer bankruptcy services, they also benefit from our wealth of knowledge concerning the collection process generally). Additionally, the firm had a small family-oriented boutique, which handled divorces, wills trusts and estates and real estate transactions (both consumer and commercial).

The firm relocated to the heart of Staten Island, New York, in Heartland Village, where it remained highly accessible to a wide range of hard working, middle class individuals and small businesses, drawing its client base from throughout the five boroughs of New York City.

The offices finally expanded to the Southern Florida region in 2007, as the demand for consumer-based bankruptcy services heightened, as a result of the economic downturn still plaguing many of Florida’s residents.

Our mantra has always been that there is life after bankruptcy. Everyone deserves a second chance and a fresh start.
