Reviews From Our Clients

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.
