The People's Bankruptcy Lawyer


Experienced and Affordable Bankruptcy Attorney On Your Side!

My name is Joseph Collier, Esq. (UCLA School of Law, JD, May 2000) and I am a licensed California attorney. I have been practicing law for over 21 years and have successfully handled hundreds of Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases on behalf of clients throughout Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties.

FREE CONSULTATION: If you are being crushed by credit card debt, cash loans, and mortgage payments, or facing foreclosure and eviction, I CAN HELP! Please call me on my direct line at (323) 286-3769 for a free phone consultation. I am available every day (including weekends) and I will personally answer your phone call.

CHAPTER 7 BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY SERVICES: I will personally handle your Chapter 7 bankruptcy case from start to finish (no assistants or paralegals). This includes: (1) a one-hour phone consultation and unlimited phone follow up, (2) in-office or remote preparation of all bankruptcy forms with me (attorney Joseph Collier) in what is usually a 2 to 3 hour session, (3) consultation with me before your appearance at the Meeting of Creditors to go over all anticipated questions and to address any of your concerns, (4) my personal appearance at your Meeting of Creditors, (5) discussion, review and execution (as appropriate) of any reaffirmation agreements, (6) appearance at any continued Meeting of Creditors (unless caused by your failure to appear or bring ID), and (7) filing proof of completion of the required course in personal financial management.

SLIDING SCALE FEES: I charge a flat fee for Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, which is adjusted depending on your “annual income” and as follows:*


Less than $20,000 ------> $1,000

$20,000 - $29,999 -----> $1,100

$30,000 - $39,999 -----> $1,200

$40,000 - $49,999 -----> $1,300

$50,000 - $59,999 -----> $1,400

Greater than $60,000 ---> $1,500


My flat fee for your Chapter 7 bankruptcy case includes the bankruptcy petition filing fee and all other costs and expenses.  There will be no surprise additional fees or costs! If you cannot afford my flat fee for your case, then I also offer a payment plan to anyone that needs it.


*"annual income" is your gross household income earned over the six calendar months before filing for bankruptcy multiplied by two.

I GUARANTEE YOUR DISCHARGE: I am one of only a handful of attorneys in Southern California that offer a guarantee of your discharge. If the Bankruptcy Court does not grant your discharge, I will refund 100% of the money you paid to me, including the filing fee. The only requirements for you are that you provide all required documents, disclose everything, tell the truth, attend the Meeting of Creditors, and finish all of the required courses.

Immediate relief from wage garnishments, bank levies, lawsuits, foreclosures, evictions, and car repossessions is available. Stop the harassing phone calls and get a fresh start. Please call me right now (323-286-3769) to discuss your situation.


"I found Mr. Collier on CraigsList and cautiously hired him for my Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing after also researching his background on an attorney rating site or two. Turned out to be a great choice. He has many years' experience and has also done a lot of pro bono work, with zero sanctions/violations to be found on his professional record. He knows his work inside and out -- a detail freak who leaves no stone unturned. He takes the necessary time to explain and review everything required and then some. Personable, easy to communicate with and generous with his time and efforts, he sincerely goes far above and beyond what's required to be of service. And his fees are reasonable indeed. A rare find. I recommend him wholeheartedly, with zero reservations at all. The best."
