A lawyer beyound the best of expectations

Our incredibly positive experience with Rick is the reason why I took time out of my day to review him and tell others about him. Please know that it is not hyperbole to say that Rick’s incredibly sharp mind, encyclopedic knowledge, eye for detail, and extensive years of experience are the only reasons why we won our case. We were fighting a bitter dispute with an unreasonable party who also hired a super-aggressive lawyer working against us. Rick was able to win two key decisions in our favor after lengthy and involved arguments in court — this only happened because of incredibly thorough research and prep work on his part, and his creative application in argument in front of our judge. He is additionally remarkably gifted at both finding solutions to business problems outside litigation, and also at bringing the big guns to battles that can’t be avoided. Truly he is a rare find and our business is still here, operating, and got a second chance only because we found and hired him. Kuddos to him and his work.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Richard was so detailed and informative, he explained everything that was needed from me and the whole bankruptcy process clearly and insight-fully. He contacted me with any little detail that was updated or modified. He helped put my mind at ease with his extensive knowledge and uplifting dialogue during our meetings. He was always available for any questions I had as the process moved forward, and asking me questions that I hadn’t even considered. He is honest and forthcoming, he truly cared and pursued the best possible outcome for me.

Richard Gottlieb Legal Services

Atty Gottlieb is one of the best bankruptcy attorneys in the marketplace. He’s knowledgable and went our of his way to provide professional services for me. The economic recession and unrelenting loan modification rejections drove me into bankruptcy. Through the able guidance of Atty Gottlieb and his team, my house was SAVED, mortgage rate and monthly payment cut in HALF through an approved loan modification. That is service I needed and very much appreciated.

Prompt follow up and communication

Richard Gottlieb was always willing to go above and beyond with my very drawn out, problematic bankruptcy. There was a lot of side work that made this complex to follow.
He was always right on top of it.
Thank you,

Chapter 13 bankruptcy stopped a foreclosure and fixed my mortgage issues

After I got laid off, my wifes income was just not enough to cover all of our living expenses and the mortgage, so we fell way behind on our mortgage (8 months). We were facing foreclosure, and had an aggressive attorney representing our lender who was pushing foreclosure quickly. After meeting with Richard, he developed a great Chapter 13 bankruptcy for us with an affordable payment plan based upon our income. The bankruptcy stopped the foreclosure and quashed the annoying lawyer.

Richard was smart, easy to speak to, and his knowledge of bankruptcy and state law put us at ease during a very stressful and difficult time. We highly recommend Richard and his office to help you with your bankruptcy or foreclosure issues

Alex Put Forth a Vigorous Defense and was Instrumental in Negotiating with the Opposing Counsel to have the Entire Matter Dismissed

I highly recommend the Law Offices of Richard N. Gottlieb.  When I first reached out to Attorney Gottlieb about my legal matter, he listened to my concerns and was laser-sharp in addressing how he would go about successfully resolving/litigating my case.  The lead counsel on my case, Alex Hess, was competent, focused, and patient throughout the process.  I had confidence in his expertise, which helped with the stress of the situation.  Alex put forth a vigorous defense and was instrumental in negotiating with the opposing counsel to have the entire matter dismissed.  I am a happy customer!

Not only did I get the Results that I was Seeking (a full Chapter 7 Discharge), but the Process Itself was very Seamless

I had a great experience using the offices of Richard Gottlieb for my bankruptcy filing. Not only did I get the results that I was seeking (a full Chapter 7 discharge!!), but the process itself was very seamless and I loved the transparency with which they worked. I put off filing for my bankruptcy several years, because just the thought of it was so daunting and exhausting! I wish I would have done it earlier, but everything worked out perfectly, so I am very happy now. Elizabeth Sousa and Alex Hess were my direct point of contact – they did a great job of understanding my situation and worked diligently to make it all happen. I could tell that they had many great contacts in the bk court systems and were respected by everyone there, which obviously helps customers like me! Richard himself is probably a bankruptcy genius, when I played out my situation to him in our initial meeting, he quickly came up with an excellent plan that made sense and actually worked at the end. (None of the other lawyers that I spoke to even came close). I highly recommend the offices of Richard Gottlieb, especially Alex Hess, Danielle Callahan, and Elizabeth Sousa!

I was most impressed

A sleepless night and worries ended with one phone call from Rick Gottlieb, after my initial phone call to their law firm.  I could not have asked for better service while filing for bankruptcy due to the personal attention given to my problem, with clear communication on how to resolve it. I was most impressed how stress-free the filing process was and the legal service received was incomparable. I will highly recommend this law firm, the Law Offices of Richard N. Gottlieb, to anyone in my situation and other legal services.

I would definitely recommend their services

Beth and Alex answered all of our questions and was there to reassure us throughout the process.  They explained things to us every step of the way, and they  made what we expected to be a painful process relatively stress-free. I would definitely recommend their services.

The Attention to Detail and Helping Us Understand Each and Every Step of the Way was More than I could have Asked

I know filing for bankruptcy is never fun. I actually helped my parents with the process and would NOT have been able to do it without the help from the Law Offices of Richard N. Gottlieb. The one thing that made the experience much less frustrating and stressful was Alex Hess. He handled our case with a level of professionalism that was outstanding!!! The attention to detail and helping us understand each and every step of the way was more than I could have asked. Let’s face it, not all of us know or really understand all the legal definitions and such, and working with him was smooth and easy. He handled my parent’s Adversary Proceeding and I know it wouldn’t have gone as well as it did if we didn’t have him on our side.

I Cannot Speak More Highly of this Law Practice – They Saved My Life

If you are reading this, you are probably considering bankruptcy and feel like you are at one of the lowest points in your life—I know that’s how I felt.  I had so many questions, and even more anxiety.  I hadn’t eaten or slept for days before my consultation with Richard Gottlieb.  No matter—Rick had me laughing through my tears, and eased my anxiety, reassuring me that, regardless of urban legend, “Bankruptcy does not mean you’re a failure or irresponsible,” and without mentioning names, told me that some of the most famous and successful people have also walked this path.  I trusted Rick immediately, as well as Beth and Alex, the managing attorney and associate.  They are patient, non-judgmental, and knowledgeable—no matter how ridiculous your questions or concerns might be—and I had a lot of questions and concerns (some more ridiculous than others!).  They also possess great senses of humor—which you need when you’re going through what feels to be a life crisis.  I should also mention that, while I have worked most with Beth and Rick, when they are unavailable, I have consulted with other attorneys in the office—and all have been incredibly helpful and supportive (and then Rick or Beth contact me back within 24 hours).  Although they are a very busy office (it’s bankruptcy law, after all), you are made to feel like you are their only client, as they provide such individualized attention.  I cannot speak more highly of this law practice—they have saved my life, and helped me learn that bankruptcy was not the end of my life, but actually the beginning of it.  Call them, they will take care of everything involved in the process of filing—including you—and will hold your hand as you get back on your feet!

I would absolutely go to them if I needed them again

Alex, and the team at The Law Offices of Richard N. Gottlieb, vigorously defended me in Bankruptcy Court after a creditor sued me for fraud. I would absolutely go to them if I ever need a lawyer again.

Brilliant Bankruptcy Lawyer! Helped me save my home!

Richard’s brilliant legal advice and hard-work helped me save my home from a foreclosure. When my husband was laid off, we could not afford our mortgage payments and fell behind significantly. Richard, with the help of his great staff Alex and Danielle, helped me stop the foreclosure process with a Bankruptcy case. The case provided me with protection and an affordable payment plan for my mortgage.

Rick’s Office also performed a loan modification, negotiated with the bank, and cute my monthly mortgage payments almost in half – effectively saving my home. Our family is forever in debt to his firm, and he saved the roof over our heads. I HIGHLY recommend Rick and his office – they are friendly and can help.
