Mr. Leibowitz provided brilliant insight into how to defend a foreclosure on behalf of a retired and elderly couple I am representing. His understanding of the process, especially the securitization of mortgages, provided a variety of defenses for me to pursue. He provided this information immediately after my contacting him for assistance – a rare and kind gesture among attorneys.

My wife and I thank you for making the entire process of Chapter-7 so painless for us. Bankruptcy was certainly not our choice till the financial trauma became unmanageable. Earlier this year when we realized that we will not be able to handle the difficult situation any further and I did not know where to look for help, just then as if God guided me to you. The first meeting with you was so reassuring that I knew that the help was God sent. Yesterday when I got your letter and the Court Order, I had to read it couple of times to believe my eyes before reading it to my wife. Thank you again. In the first place I pray no one gets in that kind of financial crisis but I will not hesitate recommending to any one that Lake Law was The Best to help them in the time of need. God bless you, your family and your staff. One of these days I will come to thank you personally.

David is thorough in his explanations so there are no surprises during proceedings or with legal documents. David listens to all your concerns to create a strategy for your individual situation. His staff was dedicated to my questions and was one of the only law firms that I have experienced that use technology to the full advantage of the law firm.   It is refreshing to have the ability to e-mail questions and get timely responses.”

“As U.S. Trustee, I directly supervised David’s work as a member of the panel of Chapter 7 Trustees. David was one of the most diligent and creative trustees on the panel. He did an outstanding job of investigating his cases and uncovering assets in cases other trustees would have missed. He also uncovered fraudulent activity that was referred for criminal prosecution. His work directly benefitted creditors in many cases where it appeared there would be no recovery. I had the upmost confidence in David.”
