Mr. Karandreas was there for me through every step of the process of filing for Chapter 13. With kindness and compassion he took on my case and allowed me time to process, weigh tough decisions while being fully informed.
Through the process as my attorney I was comforted his experience and knowledge would benefit me and my family.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy that was discharged early!
I had a bad lawyer that wasn’t abled to follow through with my Chapter 13 bankruptcy, I had a vehicle that was totaled, it wasn’t my fault, the vehicle was on my Chapter 13 bankruptcy, my insurance paid off the vehicle. I found a lawyer, Lawrence P. Karandreas, he was a godsend, he got me a discharge with my bankruptcy two years early! Thank you Lawrence P. Karandreas!/p>
Referred by family, Mr. Karandreas took the time to explain the totality of filing for Bankruptcy. His reassurance of the process made us feel comfortable. During this entire time Mr. Karandreas handled all issues in an exceptional and timely manner. He made himself available and made matters go smooth. He is a true professional that produces outstanding results. We absolutely and highly recommend Mr. Karandreas a man of high integrity and great character.
Made it easy
I just completed my chapter 13 bankruptcy. I was very pleased with Larry Karandreas, he was very helpful and explained everything so it made it easier for me to understand. I would recommend him to anyone.
Very easy to talk too
When our bankruptcy attorney stopped handling our bankruptcy case, the Bankruptcy Court notified us that our attorney and their offices had filed bankruptcy themselves. Mr Karandreas’ name was given to us by the Bankruptcy Court. Since hiring Mr. Karandreas our bankruptcy case has never gone smoother. He re-filed some of our paperwork, had our payments dropped by 75%. He worked so closely with us in resolving a six year Bankruptcy Case. We would highly recommend Mr. Karandreas for any and all of your Bankruptcy needs. He’s very easy to talk too, answers all your questions, emails in a very timely manner. We couldn’t have finished our case without him.
Made me feel like a friend
Mr. Karandreas is someone I trust. He made me feel comfortable and was direct and to the point with me. Every time he addressed me he asked how my school, family and life was going. He made me feel like a friend not a client. My case took two years but he never lost track of the situation and never was late on his performances. I highly recommend Larry, the honest lawyer.
Absolutely “A Lawyer Who Cares About His Clients”
After being in business for over seven years, the Phoenix area economic state of affairs took a terrible turn for the worse in late 2008 with many of our business transactions either failing or failed and with little chance for us to be paid for our services. It was in early 2009 that we needed to make a decision to either file for a Chapter 7 and start all over or file a Chapter 13 to stay in business and still be able to have some income coming in. We filed a Chapter 13 with the recommendation of a close business associate with Mr. Karandreas. Larry immediately set an appointment to review what would be in our best interest. During the initial interview, Larry made all of us feel comfortable and reassured us that this would be a process that he would be by our sides from start to finish. Larry is an awesome person, and he is absolutely “A Lawyer Who Cares About His Clients”. Mr. Karandreas has the knowledge, integrity, professionalism and has provided outstanding service to this process. Now that the process has finally been closed and a final conclusion on this matter resolved, Mr. Karandreas still stays in touch and is committed to the welfare of his clients. I would highly recommend Mr. Karandreas without hesitation. Thank You!! Thank You!! Thank You!!
Professional and Knowledgeable attorney
I have finally completed my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. The original law firm that I hired turned my case into a fiasco. I was referred to Mr. Karandreas to help me. My case was on the verge of being thrown out due to the lack of representation and mishandling of my case. After my first phone encounter with Mr. Karandreas it was quite clear that I found a helpful, professional and knowledgeable attorney. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone facing this difficult and often trying choice. With his help I completed my plan with my sanity in tact. Thank you so very much.
He put my fears and stress to rest
Facing the financial crisis of a bankruptcy is never ever an easy option. But sometimes it can be the only solution. I was referred to Mr. Karandreas. I was panicked because I started this journey with another law firm that completely dropped the ball and my case was 30 days from termination before completion. Mr. Karandreas immediately put my fears and stress to rest. He assured me that he was ready and able to step in and fix the fiasco that I was left with. To his credit my case is now complete and has been discharged. His caring, knowledgeable and non-judgmental demeanor are a valuable asset in this industry. Do yourself a favor, call him first. I wish I had. Thanks so much for your help.
He knew his stuff
Having to file bankruptcy can be daunting and overwhelming. Don’t try this at home and definitely not by yourself! We contacted 3 lawyers. We chose Larry Karandreas not because he was the least expensive or because he seemed like he “knew his stuff” but because we were not ” talked down to” or “talked at”. We knew from the first encounter with Mr. Karandreas exactly what was needed and expected and we could ask questions and get straight answers. We have recommended Mr. Karandreas to a family member already
He was always working with us
My wife and I were in dire straights. We were in debt and I had lost my job. We went to Larry and he was fantastic. He was always working with us and was always considerate of our needs and worked very hard for us. I would recommend Larry to everyone. Thank you so much Larry.
He was always honest
Don’t be afraid… Let us first say the thought about filing for bankruptcy [in Phoenix Arizona] was one of the scariest things in the world. With the economic crash of 2008, loss of income, student loans, and a long term illness in the family we found ourselves in a pile of medical and other debt. We felt like the world was closing in. We explored many options including debt counselors and debt settlement, neither of which was an option that would help. Then we Goggled bankruptcy attorneys and we found Mr. Larry Karandreas. We were so afraid to make that first call. But when we heard Larry’s friendly voice we were at ease. He made us see that filing was not “Financial Armageddon”. He answered any and every question and returned phone calls in a timely manner. He was always honest and held our hands every step of the way. He was well prepared in court. Additionally due to his diligent and straight forward pre-hearing preparation we also knew what to expect. We now see that what we should have been afraid of was our debt, NOT filing for bankruptcy protection. We now realize that NOT doing something about the debt, was not the answer and it would never have gone away. Because of Larry’s assistance we now have a fresh start. Our advice, call him, sooner rather than later, he has the answers.
I have and will continue to recommend him
After 35 years of work I was severely injured on the job. Unable to keep up I was forced to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Larry always responded quickly to any questions of concerns I might have had. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone needing his services
Mr. Karandreas really does care.
I spoke with four other [bankruptcy] attorneys [in Phoenix] about my case before deciding on Mr. Karandreas. He listened to me and did not cut me off like other [bankruptcy] attorneys did. He was on my case from start to finish. Mr. Karandreas was quick to respond to emails or return phone calls. I would highly recommend Mr. Karandreas.
He is both competent and caring
I have known Larry Karandreas for 20 years. Others consider him one of the best bankruptcy lawyers in town, but I prefer to think of him as one of the best lawyers for representing debtors. Often the solution is bankruptcy, but sometimes it is not. A good surgeon should not tell every patient to undergo surgery. A good lawyer should not tell every client to undergo Title 11, the federal bankruptcy code. When I refer clients to Larry, I know that he will explain all of the alternatives, then recommend the one that in his experience is best. Whether that recommendation results in a bankruptcy case or an alternative, I know that he is both competent and caring with every client.
I highly recommend
In 2007 we were swindled into buying a home from a crooked realtor and his crooked lender friend. If that wasn’t bad enough the appraiser did an appraisal on our property and appraised it for way more than it was worth. Our payments were to be around $900.00 a month. When it came to closing the payments were more than $1,700.00 a month. If that wasn’t bad enough the lender attached a prepayment penalty to the loan without telling us. We tried to make the payments on time and used up every cent we had in savings. We were on the edge of losing everything we had. I contacted Larry Karandreas for an evaluation. He advised me to go into chapter 13 bankruptcy and I could at least try to pay back some of the debts that we incurred throughout this ordeal. Mr Karandreas took the time to look at our complete credit history and put everything together and filed the chapter 13 bankruptcy for us and did an excellent job. I highly recommend Larry to anyone who is going to declare bankruptcy [and is in need of an experienced bankruptcy lawyer in Phoenix who cares].
Was always available
Mr. Karandreas assisted us through our first bankruptcy filing and then 2 years later with a re-filing when our circumstances again changed. Mr. Karandreas was always available to us and would patiently and honestly respond when questions arose. He walked us through a very trying process. His staff is also very helpful and friendly and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend Larry to anyone faced with this most difficult situation.
We found someone to work with us through the most troubled time in our financial life
After several interviews, we found someone to work with us through the most troubled time in our financial life. Mr. Karandreas was always honest, courteous and forthright. He was by our side and on our side through the entire difficult and overwhelming process.
Very prompt and responsive
I had my first telephone conversation with Larry in early 2009. I was referred to him by another law firm that could not take my case due to their existing case load. When I initially spoke with Larry Karandreas I was taking a shot in the dark. I did not know Larry nor did I know his background. I was referred and I asked for his help. Larry listened to my case and began to describe the process that would take place. Larry was accurate in his description and was able to help me get through my filing.
What is more important today is the fact that my case was finalized in 2010. My case was complicated and time consuming. Through this time, there have been times when I have had to seek guidance, advice, or inform him of potential issues that could affect my current bankruptcy. Larry has been very prompt, responsive, and has been very instrumental in his guidance.
Bankruptcy is not an easy decision. From a personal standpoint, the process is demanding and the emotional roller-coaster that you ride is not a short ride. Larry helped me through my bankruptcy and continues today due to his knowledge of the law and the trust we have built over the years. I was referred to Larry Karandreas two years ago and can highly recommend him to you today.
honest and direct
I am pleased to write a review of the excellent service I received from Larry Karandreas and his staff last year. Mr. Karandreas was always patient, courteous, knowledgeable, honest and direct in all of the information and recommendations he offered in my case. He very clearly, explained each of my options and the benefits and consequences of each choice. As a retired businessman, I highly value that type of honesty and explicit detail surrounding each option, which allowed me to make decisions as to what was the best approach in my situation. Frequently, [bankruptcy] attorneys [in Phoenix] seem to either persuade or dissuade people towards the direction the attorney wishes to go, but that was not the approach of Mr. Karandreas, as he explained each only equally, offering his recommendation while at the same time explaining that whatever direction I chose, he would honor that and work towards a successful conclusion.
Obviously, there is great deal of paperwork involved in these types of procedures, and Mr. Karandreas walked me through each page, as did his staff member(s), including a detailed list of documents that I needed to provide or an explanation if those documents were no longer available. I acknowledge that I may not always be the easiest person to deal with in such matters, yet Mr. Karandreas exhibited nothing but patience, even with my most frivolous questions. He was at all times, informative and knowledgeable while firm in guiding me to a successful conclusion.
I would strongly recommend to anyone, the legal services offered by Mr. Karandreas, with the assurance that he will always work towards the best conclusion for the benefit of his clients.
He was a blessing in disguise
Larry P. Karandreas has saved my family’s life! He was a blessing in disguise. He came highly recommended to me from a friend.
I couldn’t believe I faced having to file bankruptcy and the thought of losing my home, car and financial stability became so overwhelming. Being a single mother of a newborn and dealing with all of this was unbearable. I made the call and Larry made me feel at ease. He took me step by step on what paperwork I needed to fill out and explained what my options were. He made a seemingly complex situation into a much easier process than I had anticipated. He is kind, upfront, fair, confident, knowledgeable and is current on all the laws. I was able to file all of my debts and in 3.5 more years I will be debt free and still have my gorgeous home, my car and most importantly my peace of mind knowing that as a single mom I can provide for my son.
