I'm one of those people that overthinks and over researches everything, so i visited probably 10 or so bankruptcy attorneys, did tons of research, and waited a year before filing.
I have to admit that I was hesitant upon my first visit with Mr. Bordeaux - his office was a bit scattered and not the typical gazillion dollar desk and pictures of fox hunting on the walls LOL. I wasn't sure what this meant, but of course i was already there, so i was definately giving him a chance.
His rate was very competitive, and that was attractive of course, but what i kept going back to was his absolute thoroughness in answering all questions i had, including being up to speed with median income levels changing and advising me appropriately. He was very open and honest and real. I had taken lists of questions and after i left, emailed him more questions (all of which he patiently answered) and continued to email him here and there with questions over the course of the year it took me to decide to file my bankruptcy. Throughout this entire time, he was nothing but helpful and professional - the patience of a saint!
I've filed and had my hearing and i can honestly say i have full confidence in Mr. Bordeaux and his abilities, i have found him to be accurate and just a top-class act; he worked with me and advised me in such a way that my whole experience was effortless and worry-free!
Don't worry about the fancy office - worry about someone who actually cares enough and loves his work enough to invest his time into knowing the laws and continually researching and educating himself. I found when getting down to the nitty gritty, that a lot of the bigger firms file a chap 7 for you, even using deductions that are no longer legally allowed, knowing that they are paid whether you are discharged with the chap 7 or end up having to convert to a chap 13. Some firms have a 30% conversion rate! I don't know about you, but i want to know that i'm filing correctly and don't have to worry about an unexpected outcome!
I don't hesitate to recomment Mr. Bordeaux - he really proved himself to me, and as a very discerning person, that says a lot. He's all about business and doing it right, showed up to my hearing on time, and still to this day, responds quickly to any emailed questions I have.
A+++ and thank you Mr. Bordeaux (and Daisy - his excellent paralegal!).
10 STARS! We've hired a few attorneys throughout our lives and have never found anyone with such an ideal mix of insight, knowledge of the law and selfless approach to executing all of the above.
Service was impeccable on every level. From timely communications, to the dignity and respect shown, we always felt that our case receive top priority. This was true, literally, from the first meeting to the final days.
Plus, our case was complicated and absolutely demanded a deep understanding of the bankruptcy code and California law. I can say, with a great deal of certainty, that the outcome would be significantly less favorable had we hired a lesser qualified/motivated attorney.
If you are searching for a lawyer and really need a good one (who doesn't?) I HIGHLY recommend Clifford Bordeaux

I have to complement my wife for picking the right attorney, Clifford Bordeaux, to help us in our Bankruptcy matter.
Not only that Cliff knows what he's doing. Not only that he's very gracious and warm. But he also has an enormous patience for his clients, reminding me of an old fashion small town doctor who would sit with you and listen to you and really wants to help cure your illness, and successfully does that.
Many times that we overspent Cliff's time and more than doubled the length of the appointment, spending hours with him, asking many questions. Not once that we saw him express any impatience or look at his watch or clock. Always kind and gracious he is.
My wife and I have been very impressed with Cliff's professionalism, patience, and caring that he showed throughout the process.
Our case was quite complicated, and it worried us, but Cliff gave us confidence and positive energy that really helped bring up our morale, and we deeply appreciate it.
It has been a wonderful experience with Cliff and I tell you, it was worth more than his fee.
The process, under Cliff's advices to us and his work that was transparent to us, was a smooth success. But Cliff already knew that.
So yes, we would wholeheartedly recommend Cliff and his team to anyone who would like to consult an attorney on a Bankruptcy matter, or any other matter that's in Cliff's repertoire.
We can tell you that Cliff is a genuine good guy, and a very smart attorney. He's a real deal.
Whatever Cliff does, we know that his clients would be in the best of hands.
We love you Cliff.

I got through Chapter 7 bankruptcy successfully with the legal help from Attorney Cliff Bordeaux. In 4/2011, I received an official letter from United States Bankruptcy Court Central District of California to discharge all my declared debts. It was one of the happiest days of my life!
Attorney Bordeaux is professional, experienced, knowledgeable, detailed and thorough in handling my case. Throughout the entire bankruptcy process, whenever I had concerns, Attorney Bordeaux was there for me. He talked to me face to face in his office many times in the evenings and on Saturdays. Whenever I called or emailed Attorney Bordeaux with questions, he got back to me promptly. Before the hearing with the US Trustee, Attorney Bordeaux spent much time to thoroughly review all of the supporting documents. He offered solid advice to prepare me for the hearing with the US Trustee. On the hearing day, Attorney Bordeaux was in the room with me. He answered questions from the US Trustee when my mind drew blank. After the hearing, Attorney Bordeaux updated me on progress leading to a final decision from the US Trustee.
Attorney Bordeaux is by far the best. Thank you so much, Attorney Bordeaux, for walking by my side every step of the way throughout this bankruptcy process. I would not have done it without your help. I highly recommend Attorney Bordeaux to anyone who needs legal help to get through bankruptcy.
Cliff was fantastic. He was very prompt and clear answering our questions over email regarding timing, costs, etc. Then, when my family met with him for the free consultation, they said they were very impressed and gratified by how incredibly nice and knowledgeable he was. In fact, he realized that my brother and sister-in-law were not eligible for chapter 7, and so offered to help them with chapter 13 but actually recommended a different course of action that would mean he would make no money off of us. He then followed up with me right after the meeting with a phone call as he had promised to do. He was honest, kind and very prompt and professional. I would recommend him to anyone and use him again myself.
Was a great help and I would gladly use his services again...
Although my particular debts were outside of his expertise (private and federal student loans specifically) he was very kind and took the time to meet with me on a Saturday which really helped because I work 9-5 M-F.
He was informative and up to date on his information and steered me in the right direction with my issues even though that meant sending me away to a different specialty lawyer. He was fair and honest and could have easily led me on but gave me the facts straight up which made the whole process go smoother for me, I highly recommend Cliff for any type of typical bankruptcy filing, he was very patient.
Mr. Bordeaux was absolutely OUTSTANDING and THE BEST LAWYER as we went through what we anticipated would be an extremely difficult process. He is an expert in the field and is very thorough. He made sure we understood what was happening every step of the way and he vigorously represented our interests. His office staff is very professional, accommodating and professional they are very knowledgeable and skilled. Mr. Bordeaux and his staff were able to handle our claim with amazing efficiency. We experienced Mr. Bordeaux as the best in his field. We highly recommend his services. Look no further... Mr. Bordeaux and his Staff are GODSENT to my family. He is the BEST!!!!!!!
I am very impressed with Mr. Bordeaux! He has been endlessly patient with my mother and me regarding my lawsuit. He answered all of my emails very quickly and was always there to help. I liked the fact that he was open on Saturdays, because I wouldn't have been able to come during the week. He was more than reasonable with his fees. I honestly feel that he did a superb job on my case, and I know that the outcome would not have been as favorable had he not been on our side! He is very personable and makes you immediately feel at ease. I would recommend him highly!
I would highly recommend Clifford Bordeaux. He is an excellent attorney who helped with my difficult bankruptcy case. During our initial meeting he was very patient, answered all my questions and put my mind at ease while dealing with all the stress that one experiences when filing bankruptcy. I did not know who to contact when looking for representation and found reviews to be so valuable in my search, I wish more people would write reviews. Both he and his staff were on top of everything from start to finish. My calls and emails were always returned promptly and he spent a good deal of time explaining details. It was a very emotional time for me because a few weeks after I filed my petition my father passed away. He was extremely supportive, helpful and honest throughout the entire process. My outcome was favorable due to the expertise of Mr. Bordeaux, his clients are lucky to have him. Look no further because you have found the best.
I interviewed several Lawyers before Clifford Bordeaux. At our initial meeting it was clear that this was the Lawyer to work with: He took time to ensure that I had a thorough understanding of my decision, and explained options to consider. This process lead to confidence with my decision. I hadn't felt the same level of trust, nor as comfortable with the prior Lawyers interviewed. I have recommended him to friends, which reflects my level of trust and satisfaction with the results of our work together.
The case was a bit complicated, but Cliff knew exactly how to proceed. He crafted an excellent strategy to proceed. The most amazing part is how he was able to predict the questions for each of the judges and trustees based on his previous experience with them. As a result, everything proceeded very smoothly. Cliff and his staff are extremely detailed oriented and delivered on their timelines. Thank you for a job well done.
I needed advice on how bankruptcy worked as a landlord to a tenant that is filing bankruptcy. Eventhough there was no potential for me to become a bankruptcy client, Cliff took the time to share his knowledge with me and help me explore several different solutions for my situation. You can't go wrong with Cliffs knowledge and willingness to help. Thank you Cliff!

I never thought I would have to file for Bankruptcy Chapter 7, but things happened and I had to file.
I interviewed 3 attorneys before hiring Mr. Bordeaux. I felt very confident when I spoke to him. He explained the process clearly. He is very professional, experienced and honest and he knows the law perfectly. During the process I communicated with him several times, because I had concerns. He was always available and gave me peace of mind. I believe he preferred to communicate via email than over the phone. His staff is great too, they were very helpful and followed up for documentation. My case went very smoothly and was discharged, and now I am enjoying a new financial start. I strongly recommend Mr. Bourdeaux.
We searched 18 months for the perfect attorney and my wife and I knew after the first consultation that he was the one that could actually achieve our zero plan with lien strip. He was always patient with our never ending questions and always gave honest answers, never over promising like most of the attorneys we spoke with. Best of all he was so well prepared for our lien strip hearing that he actually got the opposing counsel to inadvertently support our case! Bankruptcy is a very hard decision: do yourself a favor and speak with Mr. Bordeaux before you do. We could not be happier with both our experience and results!
Clifford Bordeaux and his staff helped me through the process of filing and completing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. They were excellent communicators, patient in waiting for me to get my ducks in a row (which took me a long while), and made sure I understood everything. The actual filing process was straightforward and the discharge came in half the typical time (case complete). Their fees were reasonable, and I have no hesitation recommending Bordeaux.
Mr. Bordeaux represented us in our Chapter 7 bankruptcy. He (and his staff) were professional and always responded to us when we had a question. We interviewed many attorneys, Mr. Bordeaux was clear, patient, non-judgmental and honest. He was fairly priced too. I can't tell you how comforting it was to know that we had reliable representation. Our bankruptcy was discharged this month, and we heartily thank Mr. Bordeaux for all his work on our behalf.
I couldn't be happier with the service I received from Cliff Bordeaux! The US Trustee opposed my BK filing for ridiculous reasons. Cliff fought a long and drawn out battle (more than 6 months) and finally proved that the Trustee didn't have a case against us, which is what Cliff said from the beginning. He was dedicated and answered all my questions and concerns quickly and in a way that I could understand. I would recommend him to everyone unreservedly.
My son asked many people for a recommendation when it became obvious that I needed to explore bankruptcy. Cliff was mentioned several times. My son called him, talked to him several times and decided I should meet him. I liked him right away, even though I was terrified at the prospect of pursuing bankruptcy. He was very informative, and discussed with me the several options I might want to consider. I never felt "pushed" or hurried into one direction or another. Once the process was underway I felt comfortable and well taken care of. He showed up and assisted me in the final court hearing/decision. My son has recommended him to others. I appreciate his efforts and ability to communicate in a nonthreatening and informative way.
Clifford Bordeaux does a wonderful job representing a person in a bankruptcy case. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Mr. Bordeaux helped me with my bankruptcy a few years back and I am finally getting around to writing a review. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and effective. He also took the time to answer all of my questions and put my mind at ease about the whole process. Great attorney.
