Bankruptcy Testimonials

Many of you, our clients, have taken the time to write a review or testimonial to describe your experience with us.  The Partners, bankruptcy legal team, and support staff, at Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP, thanks you for your kind words and warm sentiments.


Heath, I want to thank you for all of your help with my case. Making the decision to file for bankruptcy after dealing with life changing events (loss of job, divorce) wasn’t easy but it was something that I know I needed to explore. There were so many moving pieces to my case, but you were able to walk me through what needed to be done and we finally got it to the finish line. This will now give me the “Fresh Start” that I need and allow me to get back on my feet. Thanks again for everything!!

I was in a world of financial distress with unmanageable debt. I felt hopeless until went to the Law Office of Berger, Fischoff, & Shumer, LLP. They were fantastic. Heath Berger and his partners were straight forward setting my expectations of their services and delivered as promised. They handled all the complicated forms and dealt directly with the trustee. They made a difficult process as simplistic as possible. If you are looking for a trustworthy organization to handle your bankruptcy case I would recommend the Law Offices of Berger, Fischoff, & Shumer, LLP in a heartbeat.

I have had the good fortune and privilege of being introduced to Mr. Steven Shumer of Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP. For over a decade he and his firm have assisted me and my immediate family with a myriad of legal issues. Each and every time I sought the firm’s services, I was overwhelmed with the positive results of each situation. I have recommended Mr. Shumer and his firm to family and friends for whatever legal assistance they might require and have only received positive feedback from those I have referred. I have no qualms contacting Mr. Shumer with any of my legal problems. It is my opinion that Mr. Shumer and his firm will do everything to help out his clientele to the very best of their abilities. Most importantly, they handle themselves with professionalism, compassion and understanding. THEY ARE THE BEST!!

“Having worked with Berger, Fischoff & Schumer LLP and mostly with Gary Fischoff and his team for the past year, we must say that we are extremely satisfied with the way our Chapter 11 Bankruptcy case has been handled.   Everyone at the firm has been extremely responsive and communication has been OUTSTANDING!  Gary himself was always available to answer all of our questions or concerns.  We were always informed about the status of the case and all of our options were explained to us.   We highly recommend Berger, Fischoff & Schumer LLP and  we chose to retain this firm to represent us in any future legal matters.”

“Let me start by saying 3 words: Grace, Simplicity, and Ease. Filing for bankruptcy can certainly be one of the most difficult decisions you have to make in your life as we all know. Working with the knowledgeable attorneys and paralegals with the office of Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP, absolutely made the whole process less intimidating.

“For several years I was facing financial hardships and when I was recommended to contact Heath Berger that was the day when everything started to get better. After multiple consultations and Heath’s advice, I was pointed in the direction of a Chapter 7. Everything I was told is exactly what happened. Heath always kept me positive and was always there whenever I had a question about anything. He was always available no matter what. He really made the process easy and I am very happy I made the decision to work with him. I will most certainly refer anyone to Heath and cannot thank him enough for all his hard work.”

“Best experience ever!  It’s very rare, that in times of great need, there was actually someone there to help us. After receiving a recommendation from our dear friend, we met with attorney, Heath Berger. It wasn’t long after our first meeting that all our worries and fears were gone, and we were left with the prospect of a wonderful future. It’s rare, and a great experience to meet with someone so trustworthy and caring. We feel privileged to have met Heath.”

“After working with an attorney for a year and never receiving any guidance, returned phone calls and support I had to find a new attorney and it left me feeling that there was no hope for my situation- UNTIL I was referred to Mr. Heath Berger through a good friend. Mr. Berger and his entire staff were extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Anytime I called venting with an issue and showing my concerns, Mr. Berger always calmed me down and reassured me that everything would be fine. They always went to bat for me and made me feel comfortable and at ease with the issue at hand. Thank you everyone at Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP (formerly known as Steinberg, Fineo, Berger & Fischoff)!”

“To everyone at Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP (formerly known as Steinberg, Fineo, Berger & Fischoff), I would like to thank you for your guidance, support and patience through what was a very difficult time in my life. I never thought in a million years that I would ever have to file for bankruptcy. I always thought that I was too smart to ever get myself into such a problem. Then I ended up unemployed, followed by both of my parents becoming ill and unable to care for themselves, then the collectors phone calls started to come. I was at my wits end, until I found your company. Brian Schechter, Candice, and Heath Berger all explained the process in terms that I could understand and laid out all of my options, as well as returned all my phone calls to answer my many questions and concerns. They put me at ease and made the entire process easy on me. Even at court I was calm and relaxed, knowing that I was in such good hands. I do not think that I would have made it through this trying period of my life without them. Now I can move on with a new lease on life, debt free, and forever grateful. Thank you again for everything.”

Dear Mr. Fischoff;

“My family and I just wanted to thank you. When I came to you I was on the verge of losing my business. I reluctantly filed a Chapter 11 and as result of your efforts I was able to restructure my loan payment, pay the past due taxes and wipe out most of the company’s other bills. I am now on track to building equity and providing for my family. Thank you for your great work.”

He is an amazing attorney who made me feel better after our first meeting! He made the whole process of my bankruptcy easy for me to manage. He welcomed my questions and listened to my concerns, reassuring me the whole time that I was going to be okay. There are no words to express my gratitude. Mr. Berger was there for me when I had nowhere else to turn. He truly helped me turn my life around. I cannot thank him enough. I would recommend this firm to anyone who needs help.

“Heath . . . As a lawyer myself, I look for superior talent when I need legal representation. I have found that superior legal talent embodied in your firm “Berger, Fischoff & Shumer, LLP” (formerly known as Steinberg, Fineo, Berger & Fischoff). You have been my attorney on many matters including bankruptcy and Federal Court litigation. I have found that your knowledge and expertise in bankruptcy law as well as in business litigation to be unparalleled within the field. You have guided my family through the murky process and have done so with confidence, reliability and respect. You have made navigating the legal waters in areas that I do not practice more comfortable and less stressful for myself and family. You always returned my calls, even though I called frequently, and explained the process, protocols and nuances of my case which, in turn, made me more relaxed and very much informed and updated.
In addition, your office support, especially Candice, has made the representation nothing short of excellence. Although one never wants to be embroiled in any legal quagmire, I cannot begin to tell you how beneficial it is to have your firm’s name in my Rolodex when and if any legal matter arises in the future. Thank you, Heath, from the bottom of my heart for the sincere, professional and reliable legal representation that your firm has afforded me and my family.”

“When going through rough times financially and the future does not seem promising, it becomes a very stressful burden to carry on your back along with everything else going on in life. Heath Berger made it a stress free experience. He was with me through every step of the way, not only legally, which he was extremely knowledgeable, but comforting through the whole process explaining what was going on. Any questions I had, he always got back to me.   He did not care how many times you called him with questions; Heath and the great service were always there for me. I just want to point out, that Candice, Heath’s assistant, is a great asset to Heath, as well as the firm. Her caring and compassionate service made things just that much easier, and behind the scenes she made sure everything was on track. In closing, I want you to be assured if you are considering any legal service, this is the firm you want, because you will be in great hands….. Thanks for everything Heath, and Candice.”
