Best bankruptcy Attorney in Queens. Barbie Lieber is a caring professional that makes the bankruptcy process very easy. She guided me in every step, answered all my questions and represented me in The meeting 341. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a specialist. She is simply the Best and her personalized services will prove it. Thank you Barbie for helping me to start over and for making it quick and simple.
Barbie Lieber is a great Banruptcy Attorney. She takes time to listen to you and returns your calls without delay. The process was quick and easy. I was well prepared to go for my hearing. She had asked me the correct questions several times and I wasn't scared at all. I recommend her to anyone who needs to file.
I cannot recommend Barbie enough! She was very thorough in questioning us at the start of our process to make sure we filed for the best option possible. She prepared us before our 341 meeting, constantly made herself available for questions on the whole process and put us at ease during this difficult and sometimes scary process. We always felt we were in good hands and were being given the best advice possible. We'd experienced some bad legal advice in the past, which put us in a difficult situation, but that is not the case with her! I can 100% recommend her services! I hope I'll never have to use her services again myself, but please use her with confidence!
I used Barbie Lieber as my attorney when I had to go into Chapter 13 bankruptcy. I had a totally positive experience. Ms. Lieber assisted me with all aspects of my filling and made the experience truly stress free for me. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of bankruptcy law and easily answered all of my questions. She is always professional but also a very kind and compassionate person. I would highly recommend her without reservation
Very honest and helpful. I strongly suggest.
Barbie is truly a wonderful attorney. I am glad that my wife and I found her. Living in Queens, there isn't many good attorneys, so searching google, we came upon Barbie's website and read all of her positive reviews. We called and Barbie personally answered the phone. She spent a great deal of time talking on the phone about the process and made us feel completely comfortable. We made an appointment and the rest was history. From the initial meeting to the court appearance, Barbie was always professional and always available if you had any questions. Even after getting discharged, she still remembers you and asks how everything is after the bankruptcy is finished. If you live in Queens and need help, definitely give Barbie Lieber a call and she will make your fears and worries, especially the phone calls, go away. Thanks again Barbie!
Barbie is the BEST! I'd recently fallen on hard times and realized I could no longer afford my everyday expenses because all my money was going to past debt and collections. After setting up a meeting with a different attorney who forgot I was coming on the day and time we scheduled, I searched the net for another, I could meet with that day; of course I was unsuccessful. In the process I did come across Barbie who took the time to discuss at length the process of how to move forward to financial freedom. Although she was unable to meet with me that day we made an appointment for the following day and the rest is history! She was informative, and extremely personable...Not only did she help me with my legal process from point A to Z but she also gave me real life tips for saving money and getting myself back on track financially. She gave budget friendly cooking advice as well as tips for creating extra income. I will say she was a little more expensive then some of the other attorney's I had researched but she was well worth every penny and my peace of mind is priceless! I would recommend her hands down to anyone! Thank You again Barbie! You're the Best!
There are not enough words to express how happy we were to have Barbie as our legal counsel. As unsecured lenders to former friends who filed for bankruptcy to avoid paying back their loan, we were certain that there was little to no hope in recovering any funds. Barbie guided us through the whole process offering a multitude of options that can be taken, and detailing the pros and cons of each. She is always swift in responding to any questions, whether it is via email or phone. Any updates relating to our case were immediately passed on to us. Working with Barbie felt like having a family member fighting right beside us, always looking out for our best interest. As our case comes to a close, it looks like we'll be able to recover, if not all, a large portion of the loan. Even if the outcome was different, we still hold Barbie in the highest regard. Her work ethic is unparalleled, and we are so lucky to have her as our attorney. She's the best lawyer you'll find, whether it's in Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, or Staten Island.
Queens has one of the highest foreclosure rates of any city in New York. For the past three years my home was in for foreclosure. One day I received a call from a company that supposedly helps people keep their property when the property is in foreclosure or default. I was about to lose my home (as it was in foreclosure and I was in default for about a year), was in a desperate situation (single mother with two children) and so needed help. This company made me think they could help me modify my mortgage. After paying the company over $3,000, and supplying them with information to do a loan modification with my bank, I uncovered that they never did anything. I was close to tears when my bank told me (recently a year later) that the supposed loan modification company NEVER even communicated with the bank and never supplied them with all the documentation I gave them to give to the Bank. (This mortgage company told me that it was in fact submitting the documentation.) I paid over $3,000.00 to have my mortgage modified only to find out this company was a scam. I was giving my personal information (pay statement, bank statement, SS#) to this company and nothing was been done. I had creditors calling me night and day 24hours a day. I did not know what to do and I know I wanted some legal representation, but did not know who to turn to or where to start. I decided to look into the yellow page because I was too embarrassed to ask for help, let alone sharing my embarrassment with others. I decided to search online searching for a bankruptcy attorney. I read a few profiles until I came up the name Barbie Lieber. I thought to myself, mmm . . . Barbie, she must me a doll, let me give this lady a call and the rest is history. I made my first call to Barbie in March of this year and in April I was able to breathe a sigh of relief, she took my call right away and made an appointment for me to see her. I’m glad I did. Barbie immediately took the matter into her hands. We did not file for bankruptcy (as my major issues were with my ability to keep my home). Barbie Lieber was able to reach a loan modification with the Bank in literally about 1 month! She ended up being able to reduce my monthly mortgage from about $3,755 to $2,255! I feel she has saved my and my children’s lives. Barbie is a caring, thoughtful, diligent and very thorough person. Despite just having surgery, she began to make calls and kept in touch with me every step of the way. No matter what she is doing she takes your call no matter what, where, when even on Sundays. She made sure I knew what I was getting to and took the time to explain everything in detail. She is very persistent, thorough in explaining what to expect. She did not “sugar coat” it, she tells it like it is all the time giving word of encouragement and praise. She is not only an excellent bankruptcy attorney but also an expert attorney. The world need more people like Barbie, I can’t say enough good things about her. If I had to go through this again (I don’t plan to) she is the one to call. I recommend Barbie Lieber to all my friends, colleagues who are in similar situation like I’ve been. She is simply, the BEST!! Yvette
Barbie is the Bomb! I felt hopeless and buried…until I began working with Barbie! I had consultations with 3 other bankruptcy attorneys in Queens prior to contacting Barbie. Each of these consults was very mechanical and lacked personal interest in my case. I read several raving reviews about Barbie (I didn't have time to read all of them)…and decided to contact her. Our first phone conversation lasted nearly 30 minutes. Based on her detailed questions/answers as well as a genuine interest in my complicated situation, I knew that she would be the best. I couldn't have been more correct! I informed Barbie that I was facing eviction within a few days. In addition to providing me with priceless advice of what/how/when to act, she provided me with impeccable follow-up...to a level that made me feel as if my case was her highest priority. Having only a few days prior to my impending receipt of a notice of eviction, Barbie worked me into her busy schedule to the neglect of no one's needs but her own. In order to enact an immediate Stay of Eviction, she stayed late at her office (it was nearly 11PM) until the completion of filing my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Case. Amazing Dedication! I can't tell you how much relief I felt as a result of the immediate stay of eviction. As the date of the 341 hearing approached, Barbie stayed in frequent contact with me…both asking and answering questions. I felt confident going into the hearing because of her detailed preparation…preparation that also included a role-playing of what I could expect at the 341 hearing with the Trustee. On the day of the hearing, Barbie was present and representing multiple clients of hers. Once again, in spite of her case load, she provided me with one-on-one attention and a case review prior to our appearance before the trustee. Prior to my case being called, I was able to witness other cases (clients represented by other attorneys). I was in disbelief as I saw several examples of what can happen as a result of poor preparation. One attorney failed to provide the trustee with necessary documents until the very day of the hearing. Needless to say, that hearing did not go well. Another attorney altogether misrepresented several items contained in one of the affidavits…causing the case to be adjourned. I can only imagine the frustration felt by their client as they'll need to go through that process all over again. My meeting with the trustee went very smoothly. I witnessed the trustee reviewing my well-written case and (as a result of Barbie's detail) being satisfied with the information provided. By the way, my case was incredibly complicated and where many attorneys might have taken that opportunity to charge additional fees, Barbie did not. I guess I could summarize this review by saying…if you're looking for a bankruptcy attorney in Queens and you choose Barbie, you will not regret it. Thanks Barbie! I'll never be able to adequately express my gratitude for what you've done for me and my future.
I’m just writing to thank you Mrs. Barbie, not for just being a great lawyer with a great law firm, but also for being an incredible human being. Due to a huge amount of debt over the past 10 years and my wages was being garnished for the past 2 years. Last summer I discovered I have Pancreatic Cancer and while going thru the rigors of surgery and chemotherapy and hoping for the best thru my recovery. The IRS sends me a letter informing me that they are going to garnish all my wages for everything except $179 per week, and put a lien on and/or reposes everything that I worked for. Once my chemotherapy sessions ended and I was strong enough to get out of bed without help I started searching the internet for several bankruptcy lawyers. I called several and none of them wanted deal with me due to the complexity of my case. So I set up the free consultation and went in to see Mrs. Barbie with all of my paper work. Even after she saw how messy my situation she decided to take on my case anyway. In the past I hired a tax firm name “J.K. Harris” to handle my case and not only did they rip me off for $3500, they made my situation 100 times worst. Oh, did I mention that they are banded from operating in several states and currently they have a class action law suit pending against them. Mrs. Barbie after accepting my case she had advised me that my options were limited but the only way that I could recover from financial ruin is to file for bankruptcy. and this is the compassionate part, once I explained my physical and financial situation to her in great detail, she stream lined an affordable package for me and she even allowed me to make payments for the service she rendered, and like most business transactions there was cost overrun, she even absorbed those cost knowing that I couldn’t afford to pay anymore. (During that time I was only receiving $160 per week from disability). To this day she still calls and sends emails to check up on my recovery progress. I thank her so much for being such a caring, empathic and thoughtful person. I could have never done it if it wasn’t for her help. From Brian C ; Ridgewood, New York
