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.

I was recovering from a serious heart attack and Allen and his excellent staff guided me through the bankruptcy process with care and expertise.


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 handled my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. He made sure I understood everything that was going to take place and made sure that my concerns were addressed. Anytime I had questions during the process, I was able to get an answer quickly. Even when one of my creditors tried to accelerate the timeline by bringing in their own attorney, Allen just made it go away. Filing bankruptcy was a big hassle, but Allen and his team made it as painless as possible. If I’d known it could be this easy, I would have done it sooner, instead of trying to “tough it out.” Allen is a rock star.


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.


Alan Kolber helped me when I went bankrupt. He helped me get back on my feet. He was there for me all through the process. I highly recommend him.


When I entered Allen’s office for the first time, I was very nervous. I find attorneys to be abrupt….not judging all just my experience. Immediately after meeting Allen, I realized that he was different. So easy to talk to that I was able to discuss my situation openly. The end result was he did the very best he could for me and I was extremely happy with the results. Even though the process was tiresome, the experience was not. Kudos to Mr. Kolber and his team for really making the process easy for me.

Very knowledgeable and open. A very good listener (even though often I had repeatedly asked the same questions!). Was able to allay my fears and put me at ease. Always had an answer to most any query. A very good coach in preparing me as to what to expect and when to expect it. Very, very thorough with the collection and amassing of all the necessary paperwork and documents. For such a busy lawyer as he, he always took time to take a phone call or return the call if he was with another client. He CARES! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM and HIS VERY HELPFUL and ATTENTIVE STAFF!….BRAVO!!!

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.

Mr. Kolber provided excellent legal advice regarding a personal financial matter. He is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to work with, and his staff is highly professional. I recommend him very highly.

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.

Allen helped us get rid of over $70,000 worth of personal debt. We emerged from bankruptcy with all of our credit card debt completely wiped out. Allen was super knowledgeable about all aspects of the bankruptcy and helped us through each step of the process. It is over a year and we are still free of any debt. He happens to be a good teacher as well. His knowledge, experience and kind manner are a winning combination. If you are looking for a professional who knows his stuff, he is the one!!
