Los Angeles Bankruptcy Attorney
Debt Happens. How you react to it is up to you.
Los Angeles Bankruptcy Attorney, with 5 convenient locations across LA county, providing Chapter 7 & 13 bankruptcy filing services, as well as bankruptcy alternatives, debt counseling, and protection from collection harassment.
The bankruptcy attorneys at Westgate Law have filed over 3,500 bankruptcy cases. That vast experience will ensure that if you are a good candidate for bankruptcy, your case will proceed smoothly from filing, to hearing, to discharge.
Westgate Law has a three step approach to financial distress. We start by helping you come up with a plan to deal with your immediate debt crisis, either through bankruptcy, settling your debts or establishing a repayment plan with your creditors.
One of our bankruptcy attorneys will work with you to execute that plan. During this step, we also stop creditors from calling you, and, when appropriate, file lawsuits against creditors who harass you. In some cases, our clients don’t even file for bankruptcy because of settlements we reach with creditors during this step.
After that, we stay with you forever to help you reestablish and maintain your credit, because having excellent credit is a critical component of building a great life for you and your family.
In short, our comprehensive bankruptcy attorney service means we will be the last law firm you ever need to call. That’s not an empty promise – we stick with you, and help you achieve your lifelong financial goals. Just try to find another firm that wants to work with you after your financial crisis is over! You can’t.
If you’re looking for a bankruptcy attorney, you’ve come to the right place, but that’s not all we do. Westgate Law takes great pride in pointing out all available options. We will not push you into bankruptcy if we can genuinely provide you with an alternative. That is one of the benefits of working with a bankruptcy law firm like Westgate Law that focuses on all aspects of consumer credit protection laws and not just on bankruptcy law. We can discuss all viable options and tailor a solution to fit your situation. And then, after we execute your plan, we stay with you, to build a bright financial future for you and your family.
How do we know our approach works? Because we constantly receive referrals from people that did not hire us after we pointed out a more viable alternative to them. They trusted us, didn’t give us their business and then sent their family and friends to us afterwards.
This is the heart of our business. Finding the best solution for you, whether or not you become a client. You will remember us and come to us when you, your family or friends needs legal assistance. And we want you to stay with us forever.

Rick G, Los Angeles
Filing for bankruptcy had been the last idea on my mind. It appeared to me as a nightmare, the end of everything. However, when my financial situation became very tight, my many credit cards approaching the credit line and my car breaking down out of town for a couple of hundred bucks repair, I came upon an online add of the bankruptcy law firm Westgate Law. It gave a very nice, easy and friendly impression and I decided to make an appointment. When I met Justin Harelik, it’s very professional young and dynamic lawyer with a great sense of humor, that impression was more than confirmed. My nightmare was gone. I gave the case to Harelik and had not to care about it anymore. He did an outstanding job for the little money I paid him and I just received the official letter of discharge of my debt.
