Listed below are, in my opinion, the best of the best Chapter 7 13 consumer bankruptcy attorneys for every state.

None of them paid for this recommendation.

The law offices I list below are not the largest or the most profitable. Also, they might do 100 cases a year or even 1,000. But, they do it right. Moreover, their offices might be modest or fancy. Of course, most of them are members of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA.) In addition, some of them have LLM certifications in a specialized area of the law. That means they continue to study law after law school just as a brain surgeon specializes in a particular area after medical school. Additionally, others have been trustees and judges in their past.

These are attorneys who advise clients to spend less than they make. In fact, they often live the advice they give and design new budgets for a new life for their clients. These are also the consumer bankruptcy lawyers who teach other attorneys how to file Chapter 7 13 cases. Moreover, these are the lawyers are great at doing their jobs, each and every day.

The Best Chapter 7 13 Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys

Attorneys learn by watching these lawyers practice. They are the lawyers I would go to as a consumer if I needed a bankruptcy. Some have select areas in which they practice and love doing what they do. Others have no particular area they work in, but they have a love of their work that sets them apart from the wannabe lawyers. Most attorneys know the simple five rules about how to bankrupt income taxes. But, there is only one Morgan King in California.

Sure, most bankruptcy attorneys know it is hard to discharge student loans. But bankruptcy lawyers from across the country fly thousands of miles and pay thousands of dollars to attend a seminar where they learn how to manage student loans. That seminar is one that Josh Cohen from West Dover, Vermont puts on several times a year. I attended it several times, and I defend student loan cases in Kentucky.

Some states listed below have two lawyers. Of course, Morgan King is known nationwide and does tax work in California. But I would be missing it if I didn’t include the Lawyer honored by NACBA. That attorney is Cathy Moran. Cathy Moran does Bankruptcy Mastery, which helps to teach lawyers about bankruptcy.

Why I Chose These Chapter 7 13 Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys

I made this attorney selection for a variety of reasons. Some lawyers are consistently successful in getting Chapter 13 cases confirmed when other lawyers give up. Then, other attorneys have a history of getting better results. Or, they might set up their office in such an efficient manner that it gets cases through when other firms continue to struggle.

These are the attorneys who do quality work, so, I respect and recommend them. What’s more, they are often no more expensive than a lawyer who just got out of school. So, I didn’t just blindly pick these attorneys; I did the research.

For instance, John Rogers in Kentucky in Western Kentucky has done bankruptcy for years and is an officer in NACBA. All the bankruptcy attorneys recognize John as a consumer bankruptcy attorney. There are other lawyers who do daily filings of significant cases for large corporations. But, John does it for the average wage earner and small business, just like Lloyd Koehler in southern Indiana. John’s website is I recommend him because he lives for bankruptcy cases he does for the common man and he does nothing else.

I left myself and our website off the list. I am a former tax department attorney who prosecuted corporations for not paying their taxes. Now, I only do bankruptcy and foreclosure cases. Additionally, I am also known for getting some undue hardship student loan discharges.
