New York City Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney

Bankruptcy is a scary word, and probably not what you think of as part of the definition of success.  If you’re like me, you were raised to think of bankruptcy as a terrible thing to be avoided at all costs.

But the reality is that life takes detours.  Events happen that are out of our control. Job loss, foreclosure, illness … there are many reasons why you may be behind on your bills and looking for a solution.

It may the right choice for you. But until you learn more about bankruptcy, there’s no way to be sure.

You could listen to late-night television commercials telling you that filing a case is the end of the world. You could listen to lawyers who try to get everyone to file for bankruptcy. Or you could take the first step by speaking with a lawyer who doesn’t believe that every person is the same.

My name is David B. Shaev, and I’ve been a New York bankruptcy lawyer for longer than most other lawyers have been in practice. Though I’ve filed thousands of cases under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 for honest, hard-working New Yorkers over the past 20 years I realize that times change. That’s why I spend so much of my personal time keeping my legal skills up to snuff. Each year I regularly attend and participate in conferences put on by the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, National Association of Consumer Advocates, New York City Bar Association, American Bankruptcy Institute, and Mid-Hudson Valley Bankruptcy Bar Association.  This is time that I could be spending with my friends and family, but I have made a commitment to being up-to-date rather than risk falling behind.

I’m also a graduate of the prestigious Max Gardner’s Bankruptcy Boot Camp, where I learned the skills that helped me begin to actively pursue dishonest and careless mortgage lenders in court.  In fact, my groundbreaking work in the field of mortgage abuse has led to coverage in a variety of television and newspaper outlets.

When we work together you’ll learn first-hand that I don’t believe in treating you like a number – that’s why I don’t take every client who asks me to represent them.  You’ll get one-on-one consultations and personal attention in every case.

Thousands of New Yorkers rely on me to provide reliable and realistic advice.  Now, it’s your turn.  All you need to do is contact me or call 646.722.8649 x710 to set up an appointment.
