Client Reviews & Testimonials

Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger

Our firm has a strong history of working hard to give our clients the best results possible. This is reflected in the positive feedback we get from our clients, and the numerous positive reviews that our clients leave for us. Below is a selection of what our clients have to say about us:

“Let me start by saying I have had the unfortunate opportunity of having a handful of lawyers in my life. Every one of them were the same, collect the money and disappear. None of them were able to pay attention to details, or let me get involved. Every case was settled the way it would be without an attorney. No favorable results.  When I came to Michael I explained what I was expecting, as I am the client, and I have the problem. He read through files and documents I sent prior to my meeting, as not to waste my time. I was rather impressed and satisfied with his preparation. Secondly, he LISTENED to me! By hearing my story, looking over documents and understanding the result I wished for, I felt comfortable enough to hire him. Don’t get me wrong, I was reluctant only due to my previous attorneys, and the less than desirable results.  Within weeks I had an adversary filing of $800,000 dismissed in its entirety. This was the result I knew we could achieve, and Michael believed as well. He was very responsive to calls and emails, more so than anyone I have worked with. More importantly, he did not burn through the retainer I placed. In fact, I got most of it returned. This shows his integrity, character and overall drive to do whats best for you. My opinion above is a true depiction of what happened. I would HIGHLY recommend at least meeting with Michael, he is beyond the best out there. Thanks, I can get my life back because of your help.”
-M. Shah ★★★★★

“He and his firm are above and beyond fantastic. Even after utilizing his services 10 years ago they provided me with prompt incredibly helpful assistance to get my finances and financial world back on track with all the documents I needed with ease and incredible convenience. I hope I never need his services again, but if I did; he is whom I would call first.”
-Justin Wade ★★★★★

“We chose to work with the Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger after in depth interviews with several Bankruptcy Attorneys. Michael stood out in the meeting because of the amount of his experience and the detailed information that he was able to share. He introduced us to his team that covered every aspect of the case from legal to accounting. It was one-stop shop that eased the anxiety of the Chapter 11 process. Working with the office of Michael Berger was a great choice made by our company. His team is available and they deliver results. The attorney that was primarily handling the case was Michael’s Senior Associate Attorney Sofya Davtyan. Sofya is a very attentive attorney. She understood our case and gave us the results that we were looking for to solve our debt problems and to continue to grow our business. She worked diligently under the guidance of Michael and they both used their experience and expertise to help our case. With a case like ours we had a lot of questions and a lot of loose ends. Throughout the process, Michael and Sofya solved our problems. We always got the best answers to our questions and honest guidance that fit our situation. Sofya was available and very courteous to all of our employees. She was a great negotiator to reduce our debt of the company to a much lower sum that our company can afford. She worked with us some days for long hours to prepare all necessary documents to meet our deadlines and to make sure that we always got the best possible result in Court. Her representation saved us a lot of money on the cost of the case. Michael guided the full Chapter 11 process with his unmatched experience. He met every challenge that we had in our case and solved every problem. We are very satisfied with the work that was done with our case. I highly recommend the Law Office of Michael Jay Berger to file and handle your Chapter 11 case and get you the result you are looking for.”

-Lina R. ★★★★★

“I’m a retired physician and full time real estate investor. I’ve had a great deal of experience with attorneys. Michael Berger is among the most persuasive, effective, cost efficient attorneys I can ever remember working with. A substantial part of the workload was done by Ms. Sofya Davtyan, who has been well schooled by Mr Berger. The two of them make for a formidable team. I could not have gotten a better result; I would give them 6 stars, but only 5 are permitted!!”★★★★★

“I have been in need of Michael Berger twice now. Almost a decade ago my husband’s medical practice fell apart. The bills came in, however the accounts owed went flat. Two attorneys told me that I could not file a chapter 7 because my debts were consumer debts. I kept on looking, praying and searching the internet until I came to Mr. Berger’s website. I was dubious but still in financial hell. I went to the law office of Mr. Berger and he along with ayana guy were able to have my debt discharged! Fast forward almost a decade. My husband is deceased and I have been living in fear of my mortgage company. I fell behind and once again turned to Mr Berger for help. He and attorney Sofya Davtyan quickly informed me that I had been released from the debt! Thanks to you all!”
-Donna T. ★★★★★

“I am an attorney in Boulder Colorado and retained Michael Berger and his Senior Attorney, Sofya Davtyan, to assist us in a matter where a defendant in a Colorado lawsuit filed for bankruptcy in California. In less than two months, Michael and Sofya were successful in having the automatic stay lifted and the bankruptcy action dismissed. They were very knowledgeable about all aspects of the process and their rates were quite reasonable.”
-Christopher A. ★★★★★

“Michael and his team are friendly, knowledgable and efficient, They made my experience a painless as possible and delivered what was promised.”
-Alfredo D. ★★★★★

“Michael secured a large judgement in our favor in an earlier case. He also gave us good free advice on a current case. Highly recommended.”
-Randy N. ★★★★★

“Mr. Berger handled a chapter 11, a chapter 7, and a few other cases for me. He is very knowledgeable and an honest attorney. He has handled a large number of cases and he has valuable insight into bankruptcy laws. My chapter 7 case could have been challenging but with his advice and direction we were able to have the judge issue a discharge on the case. Mr. Berger and his team have excellent knowledge of bankruptcy law and I would recommend his firm to others.”
-So H. ★★★★★

“To begin with, it was a difficult task for me to choose the right attorney that I could trust, and represents me and protects me from the creditors. I consider myself lucky to call MJB Office by random and speak with Ms. Sofya Davtyan. Following days Ms. Davtyan and her team Mr. Berger did not let me down during this (stressful) process and they helped me go through this process smoothly. I would highly recommend Sofya and Michael for their extensive knowledge base, professionalism, and excellent team-work.”
-Kaya I. ★★★★★

“Mr. Berger represented myself and a group of former students of a flight academy that closed its doors and left us with large student loan debts. Mr. Berger kept us informed of the proceedings during the case through his blog. Any questions I asked over the phone were answered; either by himself or one of the lawyers assigned to the case. When the decision was handed down which did not favor us, he explained our options to us and how we should proceed. I remember him saying he was a “marathon runner and in it for the long haul”. I followed his advice and stayed the course. I am happy to say that for his reasonable one time fee he represented us for years and now for me the race is over and my student loan debt of over $70K has been forgiven Mr. Bergers professionalism, due diligence and honesty during the proceedings helped calm many nerves during this time. Thank you for your help!”
-Dave N. ★★★★★

“I am an evidence-based person. Here is the evidence that makes me believe Michael Berger is excellent at what he does. We had an involuntary bankruptcy case that was on the verge of dismissal when we came across Michael Berger. He and his associates resurrected our case, collected information, remained available and communicative, put the case together, and got the involuntary bankruptcy approved in court, not an easy matter. Obviously I wouldn’t just call him for any little thing, because he does charge money, but he remained available throughout, whenever the need arose. Thank you. I don’t know anyone who could have done it better.”
-Paul P. ★★★★★

“When I first met Michael Berger I knew right away I was in good hands. Everything went so smoothly and I was not worried at all. He changed my life for the better and was able to start all knew without any stress. He is the best. I would highly recommend Michael. He truly cares and it shows.”
-Trish P. ★★★★★

“If you retain any lawyer other than Michael Jay Berger for a Bankruptcy matter you are an idiot. I have been an attorney for over 30 years and I refer all of my clients, friends and relatives that have any Bankruptcy issue to Michael. No matter how difficult or time pressing the matter, Michael has left each and every one of my referrals exceptionally satisfied Don’t be an idiot, hire Michael. P.S. Even his employees are great!”

Michael and Ori are extremely professional and on top of their game. They are extremely thoughtful, efficient, and work very diligently to get the job done.

Mr. Berger, Ori Blumenfeld, Sara Tavakoli and many others did an outstanding and extremely professional job in the handling of the case.

-Martha G. ★★★★★

“When friends, associates, and competitive lawyers were negative about us filing and winning a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, the Law firm Michael Jay Berger showed no hesitation even though the Honorable Bankruptcy Judge was one of the toughest for our District. I am so blessed because I have been shined on. The process was explained to us throughout the different phrases and the importance of the documentation requested of us and why was also explained. We didn’t feel like we were puppets. We felt like we were empowered part of the lawsuit team working for us.”
-Brianna E. ★★★★★

“I would like to thank the Staff at Michael Berger’s Law Office especially Yathida Nipha-Roshan and Sofya Davtyan for their professionalism and promptness that they provided in getting my case discharging .

-Monty C. ★★★★★

“One of the best Law Offices in LA.”
-Fred K. ★★★★★

“It gives me great pleasure to share my positive experience provided by the attorneys and staff of Michael’s firm. My satisfaction with Mr. Berger’s firm is largely due to the efficiency and attention to detail in their interview and data collection processes. Additionally, the ability to work with the team electronically made our collaboration and document exchanges seamless and prompt. Furthermore the staff always responded via email or phone in a timely manner which is important and reassuring in what can be a stressful and emotionally charged matter. In closing, I could have saved myself years of stress had I contacted Mr. Berger’s firm at the onset of my legal issues. I am completely satisfied and wish to personally thank my attorney, Sofya, and paralegal, Yathida. Excellent is an under rating for the peace of mind they have provided. I will always be appreciative for their fine work and most importantly the successful outcome! EXCELLENT and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”

“Michael and his team are fantastic at navigating the complexities of Bankruptcy. I’ve recommended clients and the response is universal – great service and they are committed to resolving matters for their clients. Highly recommended!”
-Dan F. ★★★★★

“Words can’t express the gratitude that my family and I have for Michael and his team. After experiencing my fair share of bad attorneys the last few years in fighting a seemingly endless legal battle, I can definitely see why they stand out among the rest. They are extremely professional, knowledgeable and effective. With their help, my previously insurmountable legal problems are effectively being chiseled away and I am extremely grateful for them. In addition, I also want to specially mention Ori Blumenfeld, who handles our case directly. His kind and understanding demeanor has helped ease our worries making the stress of this whole ordeal more manageable. I firmly believe that his dedicated and diligent commitment in our case has been key in getting us through all this.”
-Alexie A. ★★★★★

“Filing for bankruptcy was a very humbling experience but the empathy and efficiency with which it was handled by the team at MJB made the process much more easily digestible.”
-Elon K. ★★★★★

“If you read Mr. Berger’s web site, it’s very impressive. When I retained him, let me tell you the results were even better. I was a little worried about retaining an attorney of such high caliber. Would I get the same attention? Well let me tell you Mr. Berger and his whole firm are very, very nice people. And they really care. And let me also tell you they are very, very smart, and very, very good! His associate attorney Minha, handled my bankruptcy in a special way of helping you through it, you don’t hardly know it’s happening. Before I knew it, I was discharged! And when one of the creditors challenged my discharge, Mr. Berger appointed Ori to handle that. Ori’s level of superior knowledge and competency was levels above our adversaries. Needless, to say he won my case and you could tell he put in that extra extra effort and all the time necessary in my case to make sure we would win because my families and my life was in his hands. I felt special like I was their only client the whole time I was their client. Thanks to Michael Jay Berger, we have a happy family life again. I’m forever grateful to them and will never forget what they did for my family and I. That kind of happiness and relief one can’t put into words. ”
-Tony B. ★★★★★

“Great Firm, Great Service! I was referred to this law firm after my own attempts to handle financial issues backfired when I did business with a credit settlement company that was less than on the up and up. I had paid them out over $5000 to find out they were taking my money but not doing anything that they promised that they would when it came to my creditors. It was bad to the point that I was served with a law suit. I was at my wits end not knowing where to turn. Luckily I listened to the advise I was given and called up the Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger. I was immediately routed to Sofya Davtyan who right off the bat gave me the warm fuzzy feeling like she would actually do what she said she was going to do. I immediately set up a meeting with her and though they are located in Beverly Hills, I am in the Valley and she changed her schedule around so I could meet her in their Woodland Hills location for my convenience (how thoughtful!). I did not even know they had a local office! We retained the Sofya and she made the entire process so simple and non stressful which is what was really needed after all the headaches I have been dealing with in trying to handle this by myself. We just had our creditor meeting yesterday which went successfully, the law suit against me will be wiped out, the credit settlement company refunded my money, in addition to all of the medical liens against my spouse will be wiped out too. I will be debt free in less then 3 months. I cannot say enough good things about this firm and the people in it. Everything from the receptionists that answered my call to her assistant, Yathida who was super helpful in the completion of the paperwork. Thank you Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger!! You are awesome!! i wish I went this route first before the credit settlement company and could have been debt free and hassle free a year ago!! But I learn the hard way, I am just thankful I found you when I did!”
-Lucy G. ★★★★★

“Great firm and a great experience. Ori Blumenfeld and Michael Berger were very hands on and very knowledgeable in a challenging and difficult situation. I highly recommend both of them.”
-Jack R. ★★★★★

“I can’t express how grateful I am to have came across the offices of Michael Jay Berger. Mr. Berger has helped my case tremendously in which other lawyers I contacted, would not take my case. Mostly because my case is a complicated case. I am extremely appreciative of all the work Mr. Berger, Sofya Davtyan and Sam Boyamian have done for me and continue do. Professionalism at its finest. If you need someone to represent you for your bankruptcy case whether it’s easy or complex, I highly recommend The Law offices of Michael Jay Berger. They will make sure that you’re well taken care of.”
-Rosa A. ★★★★★

“Michael Jay Berger and his team are a Godsend. For over two years now, I have been battling a lawsuit that ultimately landed me in bankruptcy court thanks to one bad attorney after another. I finally had the good sense to look through Martindale.com and seek out better representation. When I saw that Michael’s firm consistently came out on top of the ratings, I thought: “what have I got to lose?” So, after sometime, I finally got an appointment. I thanked my lucky stars that I did. After meeting Michael, I knew that he can help me. Sure enough, the money that I spent hiring his firm has brought me the peace of mind that I haven’t had in a very long time. They are truly professional, extremely knowledgeable, competent and caring. Ori Blumenfeld, who directly handled my case, was amazing and he got me a favorable conclusion in bankruptcy court. Not surprisingly, I have hired them to resolve the case that started my long ordeal in the first place. All in all, I am truly grateful for their continued help. I would definitely question the one-star reviews that were written before. Speaking as one who has previously been poorly represented, I can confidently say that Michael Jay Berger and his team are definitely the best.”
-Lexi A. ★★★★★

“Ori is amongst the people that anyone can trust and count on. Knowledgeable, smart and a well rounded individual Ori is always putting others needs before his own. It’s not surprising to learn that Ori is on the rise to success and is becoming a strong presence/role model in the community.”
-Rigo R. ★★★★★

“We were in serious trouble, we met with Sofya. She was professional, listened to our situation and offered excellent advice. We met with Michael and he was warm and personable. No charge. Better than the first guy we met that charged $400 to tell us “it was not a sin and to file Chapter 7″, putting our business at risk. All of our dealings were with Sofya and Yathida. Both were patient and cordial. We ended up filing a Chapter 13. Although it was a lot of work to provide the necessary paperwork, this is expected. Only we would have the information necessary. We expected a $1000 payment, the courts ordered a $1850 payment. The numbers are the numbers – nothing anyone at the law firm did wrong. 4 years of making payments and our income was decreased significantly. We couldn’t keep up. Contacted Sofya, explained the situation. Once again, more paperwork to supply. She filed a hard ship discharge, and was successful!! We are COMPLETELY satisfied with our experience and would highly recommend.”
-Angela B. ★★★★★

“I am an attorney in San Francisco and do not practice bankruptcy law. I recently had occasion to contact Michael about some bankruptcy law questions. He proved to be knowledgeable, responsive and helpful. His experience allowed him to provide solid, practical answers to my questions.”
-Bill W. ★★★★★

“I am a happy and satisfied client of Law offices of Michael Jay Berger. I have worked with Sofya Davtyan and her paralegal, Yathida I am very happy with them. They over delivered and went out of their way to help me and I am grateful and certainly and highly recommend them”
-Al S. ★★★★★

“Michael, Georgeann, and Jennifer were the best! We had a really good experience and Georgeann made it as painless as possible – even approaching our case from a personal perspective which removed all of the bad feelings and guilt. Jennifer was amazing at answering our technical questions and following up on the paperwork until it was resolved. Absolutely the best in the business. I highly recommend them NOW! Get it over with – you will feel so much better!! BTW – I have referred others to them as well – I never do that unless I believe in someone!”
-M.L. ★★★★★

“I had a terrific experience using this firm, I worked with Minha Rhee. She responded quickly and walked me through the entire process. I found her to be very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. The entire process went smoothly and as I expected. I wouldn’t have any hesitation recommending her.”
-Mark S. ★★★★★

“Absolutely the best! From the very beginning GeorgeAnn made me feel so comfortable and was always there like a friend. The process was very simple and she was always there every step of the way. Michael and Jennifer were also amazing. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger.”
-Cindy W. ★★★★★

“I received great customer service through the Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger. I didn’t work directly with Mr. Berger but I did work with his counter partner George Ann, who was phenomenal. She was very sweet and upfront with everything. It was a timely process with the paper work and procedure; however, once all the paper work was in and on line counseling was complete, then the filing part on their end seemed to go smoothly. I received email correspondences from her assistant along with phone calls which made it convenient for me because I was not a local client and has a crazy schedule. I received my hearing date, attended and George Ann ran through some of the questions they would ask me. Sure enough they did ask me the same questions she prepared me for. The hearing went smooth, and once again it was a pleasant experience working with George Ann who represents Michael Jay Berger’s office. I highly recommend Michael Jay Berger’s office, especially George Ann. What a sweet, down-to-earth woman.”
-Rowena A. ★★★★★

“Great company. I am very grateful to have them as my bankruptcy lawyer. The process was fast and easy, they are very professional and responsible every step of the way. I filed bankruptcy with them in 2012, now I’m cleared and my case is closed with all their help. Sofya and Yathida are very responsible and helpful throughout the whole process. For anyone who has a need for bankruptcy law or financial law help, I would highly recommend Law Offices of Michael Jay Berger.”
-Michael C. ★★★★★

“As Michael himself says, ” Berger gets it done, baby!” and he does. I was very happy with his and his assistant attorney Sheila’s performance. Serious people for a very serious matter as anyone who will read this will agree. Michael and Sheila are knowledgeable and have a great deal of positive energy that will lift you during your challenging time as well.”
