Who are we?
Jeena Cho and Jeff Curl are San Francisco bankruptcy attorneys with JC Law Group PC. (Lucky for us, we have the same initials, so naming the firm was easy!) For those of you who are wondering – Jeena & Jeff are married. Lisa, our receptionist, answers our phone. Barbara is our legal assistant. So, you don’t have to wonder whom you will talk to, or fear that you will be shuffled off from one person to another.
Our firm is different from most bankruptcy firms in several aspects.
Many bankruptcy attorneys are solo attorneys who have a large back office consisting of paralegals and legal assistants. We do not. When you hire JC Law Group PC, you are hiring Jeena and Jeff — not a back office. From the initial consultation through the end of your case, we will personally handle your case. We do use staff to help you gather and organize documents, but we promise there will never be a bait-and-switch with us. We also promise that we will be available to you.
First and foremost, we care about you. We know bankruptcy is both an emotional and financial decision. And we know you are probably experiencing a great deal of stress. It’s a daunting decision and we want you to feel comfortable about filing. For this reason, we never “sell” someone on bankruptcy.
When you come in for a consultation, we discuss your situation and give you the available options. The decision to file is yours. We will guide you, but never push you. And, of course, we care about achieving the best possible outcome for your case and making sure your bankruptcy goes as smoothly as possible.
If there are problems in your case, we will explain the situation and offer possible solutions. We listen to your concerns and work hard to accomplish those goals. Typically, they involve protecting your assets, saving your home, car, or making sure all of your debts are discharged (forgiven). Many of our clients stay in touch with us for years after their bankruptcies have been completed and let us know how they are doing. We love hearing from our debt-free clients and learning about how life has improved. We promise to treat you the same way we would want our family to be treated.
This is the reason why so many of our clients refer their friends and family members to us.
Hiring a Team
Two heads are always better than one. When you hire JC Law Group PC, you are hiring both Jeena and Jeff. We continually consult with each other to come up with creative solutions to difficult problems. Jeena and Jeff’s clients also benefit from their different legal backgrounds (Jeena is a former prosecutor and Jeff is a former civil litigator) so we tend to approach problems from different angles.
We are local, Bay Area bankruptcy attorneys
We live and work in the Bay Area. We have two offices — San Francisco and San Mateo. We handle cases out of San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose and Santa Rosa courts. We are not a “national firm” where you’ll be just another case. It’s often easier to live in denial and ignore your situation than face it head-on. Please don’t make the mistake of waiting too long to get help. Call us 415-963-4004 and we’ll talk about your situation.
