Welcome to the Law Offices of Steven J. Abelson, Esq.

New Jersey's Bankruptcy Law Firm
Our practice has been specializing in consumer bankruptcy and related consumer litigation since 1990. We help individuals file for protection under Chapters 7, 13, and 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.

We know bankruptcy can be hard, having an experienced bankruptcy lawyer who will help go through all your options is important. Prior to making any decision to file for bankruptcy, we work with clients to consider alternative solutions of debt relief including debt negotiations, referrals to consumer credit counseling organizations or qualified mortgage brokers if refinance or reverse mortgages are appropriate considerations.

As necessary, we will consider the availability of litigation to redress violations by creditors under the federal Truth in Lending laws, violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Additionally, we will actively protect our clients rights under the Bankruptcy Code by litigating violations of the Bankruptcy Code by creditors including actions for damages as appropriate.

Take the first step to a fresh start.

* Due to the significant increase of cancelled and/or no show appointments over the past year, we have been compelled to charge a small fee to hold appointment times. Starting 1/1/17, we will be charging a $ 25 fee for a basic bankruptcy day appointment and $ 100 for an after hours or business related bankruptcy appointment. In this fashion, we can continue to set aside sufficient time to assist our prospective clients in a professional manner. All such charges shall be credited against any retainer to be paid to the firm. Thank you for your understanding.
