Your bankruptcy case will be heard in the Woodland Hills Bankruptcy Court if you live in the San Fernando Valley. Doesn’t it make sense to be represented by a lawyer with decades of experience in the Woodland Hills Bankruptcy Court?

Our lawyers have been practicing law in the Woodland Hills Bankruptcy Court of the San Fernando Valley ever since the day it opened. In fact, our San Fernando Valley bankruptcy law firm opened in 1989, years before there ever was a Woodland Hills Bankruptcy Court.

Woodland Hills Bankruptcy Court LawyerThe Partner in charge of our Woodland Hills Bankruptcy Court cases is Leon Bayer. Leon grew up in the San Fernando Valley.  Leon attended college and law school in the San Fernando Valley. He handled his first San Fernando Valley bankruptcy case in 1980.

Do you want to know anything about the history of the San Fernando Valley? Then ask Leon, he knows quite a bit about it.

Woodland Hills Bankruptcy Court Leon says, “The first Gold Rush in California took place just north of the San Fernando Valley. It happened in 1842, in the place now known as Lopez Canyon, between Sylmar and the Santa Clarita Valley. Miners recovered about 1300 pounds of gold there. The area is also called Placerita Canyon, derived from the Spanish word for gold nuggets. The value of the 1842 gold strike in today’s dollars is about $25,000,000. Not bad pay for picking shiny rocks out of a stream bed?”

Did you know there is gold in filing bankruptcy? Filing for bankruptcy may eliminate your debts without the need of ever paying them back. Also, the debts you discharge in bankruptcy are tax free. Bankruptcy can also give you time to catch up on debts you want to keep. You can read more about the workings of bankruptcy in our free book on line, the Best Bankruptcy Book. The book was written by Leon Bayer and Jeffrey Wishman.
