Guiding You Through a Complex Process

The prospect of filing for bankruptcy may seem overwhelming or even intimidating at first, but at Cal West Law, we aim to make the bankruptcy process easy. Our Los Angeles bankruptcy attorneys will take care of every detail and walk you through each step. Our team has handled countless bankruptcy filings, and we can utilize our extensive knowledge to ensure that we secure the most favorable outcome possible.

We understand you likely have questions about how bankruptcy works and what filing might mean for your family and property. Our team strives to help our clients understand the powerful benefits of bankruptcy and is prepared to address all of your concerns.

Our educational resources can help answer many common questions about bankruptcy, including:

Avoid Foreclosure with
Our Help

You have bought a house and worked hard to make it a home. However, due to circumstances likely beyond your control, you have fallen on mortgage payments, and now the bank is threatening to foreclose.

If you find yourself facing foreclosure, all is not lost. Our team can employ a variety of strategies that can stop foreclosure and help you keep your home. Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you reorganize your finances and discharge certain types of debt. Any imminent or in-progress foreclosures must generally cease for the duration of your filing. If bankruptcy does not make sense for your situation, we can also pursue loan modifications, short sales, forbearance agreements, and more.

We will never give up when fighting to save your home. Our team will sit down with you and thoroughly review each of your options. We can help weigh the pros and cons of each approach and provide advice that will help you make an informed decision.
