About the Firm

Wild Chances on Wild Ideas.

My name is Mayur M. Patel and my law firm specializes in consumer bankruptcy law. Bankruptcy law wasn't my first choice but it fell into my lap by happenstance and became a calling.

I always worked for small firms but I joined a bankruptcy firm with a large client base. We did many wonderful things for many amazing people but it lacked the "bedside manner" of individual service. But I also realized reinventing the wheel and starting my own bankruptcy practice wasn't the direction I wanted to go. Yet, I wanted to continue to use the skills and experiences I've developed in handling thousands of bankruptcy cases to continue to help consumers and attorneys.

Then I had a wild idea, why not provide consumers and attorneys services they don't either have the time, resources, or perhaps the expertise to handle? So I decided to take another wild chance on a wild idea and quit my job to start this firm where my mission is simple: to provide individualized care to each client.

My hope is that I can help you.

Zealous Advocacy When You Need It.

Henry Ford once said "you can't build a reputation on what you are going to do." That's why I've spent countless months and years zealously fighting for my clients in getting them what is in their best interest through collegial means if possible and aggressive litigation. I am proud to have represented thousands of clients who trusted me in their time of need. I've meet clients of every background, nationality, religion, and race but each of them all have something in common: they all have a compelling story to tell and need someone to hear it. Compassion drives my practice and while I try to inspire my clients when they need it the most, it's the other way around most of the time. But don't take my word for it, here are just some of their stories that have built my reputation:
