Michael Kaufman work ethics were exceptional and prioritize my case In a timely manner. Would definitely refer him again and again.


Very professional and smart, Mr. Kaufman helped me avoid losing money to my trustee because I made a large payment to an insider after ignoring his advice and he still helped me fix it, the trustee even complimented him for "being a smart lawyer" and after hearing 20 other people's cases on the day of my 341 hearing I realized I definitely had the best lawyer around. I hope I never have to file bankruptcy again but if I did there's no doubt in my mind I'd rehire Michael Kaufman. I also want to add he was very affordable.
