“Bankruptcy Is Not A Four Letter Word”

Individual Bankruptcy

Our clients are the middle class families who were hit hardest by the Financial Crisis, loss of employment, divorce or illness. They own homes, have a college degree and have paid their bills their entire lives.


Chapter 7
for Individuals and Families

Our Chapter 7 Bankruptcy clients eliminate their credit card debt, personal loans, medical bills, foreclosure and automobile debt. They keep assets such as bank accounts, automobiles, pension plans, IRA’s and their home.


Chapter 13
for Individuals and Families

Our clients keep their assets and homes even if they earn above the average family income and their assets are worth more than allowed under Chapter 7, paying pennies on the dollar to unsecured creditors while under the protection of the Bankruptcy Court.


Chapter 11
for Businesses

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy allows a business to continue operating and receiving income, keeping it doors open and its employees on staff. Debt payments are restructured over a 5-year Plan, all while under the protection of the Bankruptcy Court.


Business Debt Restructuring

Many of our Business clients desire to privately renegotiate delinquent debt to save the business, improving liquidity and profitability. Many banks, lenders and creditors will restructure or “work out” your debt outside of Bankruptcy court.


Business Law and Consulting

Entrepreneurs, investors, partnerships, and small to midsize companies and corporations work hard to see their businesses and visions grow. We provide Business Consulting and Coaching with effective guidance and legal services that protect the bottom line.

Reviews From Our Clients

Speaking to Allen was better than psychotherapy. When we came to Allen, our business had failed and our house was in danger of foreclosure. We were literally in a panic. Allen sat with us for over two hours at our initial consultation and really helped us deal with our money matters , from both a financial, emotional and psychological perspective. He was there to answer all our questions, but most importantly walk us through our financial nightmare until all of our issues were resolved. I would highly recommend Allen to any of our friends in need of bankruptcy.

Allen and his paralegal staff professionally and successfully navigated the approval process of the State of New York Office of the Attorney General and related state court on our behalf, thus enabling our synagogue to sell part of our existing property.

Allen is a very good lawyer!!! He knows the law very well and is very smart and down to earth. is very good in communicating and has a very good sense of hummer. Also, he is very good in representing you in front of a judge. I personally used him and was very satisfied with his knowledge of the law and he was very reinsuring to me in a very difficult time.

Allen is a great guy and a great attorney. He always gives me the straight information and advice I am looking for and he is the lawyer I always refer people that are looking for bankruptcy information to. He is open, honest, and friendly and I highly recommend him.

I had close to $100,000 in credit card debt that made my life a nightmare. Allen Kolber was able to get rid of that debt through Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I now have a fresh start. Allen also negotiated a loan modification on my first and second mortgages. He has an excellent staff that assists him, specifically Nadia and Sylvia. If you need a bankruptcy lawyer, Allen Kolber is the best.

Mr. Kolber and staff provided the best service possible and addressed my concerns in a very professional and friendly manner. He got my issues fully resolved with great determination and full personal attention. His warm personality shines!

I have dealt with Allen on several issues, I had excellent experience with him in every aspect. Aside from his professionalism and promptness, I have never met a lawyer with that level of honesty. I had a case where I had already paid Allen in advance for services, later on, I got a settlement offer from the other party, Allen advised me to accept that offer, and he returned to me the entire amount that I have paid.

Allen made the process of going through bankruptcy as simple as possible. He went through the process with us and explained every detail and addressed our concerns before we were able to have them. We had over $70,000.00 in debt and it was a great relief to have this all behind us, so we can start fresh.

As a businessman involved with real estate brokerage and mortgage brokerage, I have used Allen Kolber to restructure my financial condition, including my investment properties. I have recommended Mr. Kolber to many other clients, and I continue to recommend him for bankruptcy and general business law questions.
