Choosing the right attorney to guide you through your legal journey is
one of the most important decisions you can make in your case –
and it can make all the difference in securing a swift and successful
outcome. By vetting attorneys based on their experience, reputation, and
record of success, you can gain a better understanding of whether or not
a lawyer has the tools to help you succeed.
At Wadhwani & Shanfeld our decades of experience and thousands of
satisfied clients speak for themselves. It is the fact that we have
two Board Certified Bankruptcy Specialists leading our team that truly sets us apart from the rest.
Both of our firm’s founding shareholders, Attorney
Raj Wadhwani and Attorney
Greg Shanfeld, are Certified Specialists in Consumer Bankruptcy by the American Board
of Certification (ABC), the nation’s leading legal specialty certification
organization for bankruptcy and creditors’ rights. This is a prestigious
distinction that not only establishes both attorneys as experts in their
field, but also places them among a very select group of practicing lawyers:
There are currently only a total of
84 Board Certified Bankruptcy Specialists in the state of California (including Bankruptcy, Consumer Bankruptcy, and Business Bankruptcy specialization).
Wadwhani & Shanfeld has
2 of the 84 specialists.
The American Board of Certification has certified
less than 1,000 attorneys nationwide.
Aside from placing both of our firm’s partners in a very select group
of lawyers, Board Certification is an objective measurement of their proven
expertise and record of success. The ABC certification process is designed
to recognize attorneys who have exemplified the highest standards, and
who have passed a rigorous evaluation. ABC certification as a specialist
means that our lawyers have:
- Met or exceeded stiff certification standards regarding experience, ethics,
ongoing legal education, and peer review.
- Demonstrated a sophisticated knowledge of consumer bankruptcy.
- Successfully completed a comprehensive written examination on bankruptcy
and the rights of creditors, legal ethics, and consumer bankruptcy.
- Displayed substantial experience handling consumer bankruptcy matters (our
firm has helped file over 10,000 cases).
- Received references from and earned a positive reputation among legal peers
Certification as a specialist speaks volumes about an attorney’s
level of extensive experience and expertise in their area of focus. Many
legal accolades advertised by attorneys recognize lawyers based on votes
or subjective criteria that does not fully vet the level of their understanding
of law. By choosing our Board Certified specialists, you can feel confident
knowing that your case will be in the hands on two highly capable lawyers
who have met rigorous and objective standards. In much the same way that
you would see a doctor who is a specialist for a specific ailment, rather
than a general practitioner, you can choose to work with a lawyer who
is a specialist in the legal matter for which you need assistance.
In addition to having the breadth of knowledge and ability to handle a
wide range of
bankruptcy and debt issues, our attorneys have learned how to best serve real people
and how to help them find the most appropriate solutions to their financial
problems. As Consumer Bankruptcy Specialists, Attorney Wadhwani and Shanfeld
have helped thousands of men, women, families, and small business owners
who have fallen on tough times. Our attorneys and staff are passionate
about making a lasting difference in the lives of our clients.
