Attorney Anthony Hughes has been involved in over 5,000 bankruptcy cases, eliminated hundreds of millions of dollars of consumer and business debt, kept hundreds of families in their homes, and allowed numerous struggling businesses to keep their doors open and grow in this tough economy. He has spent an average of 20 hours per week for the last 5 years in the courtroom and the rest of his time has been spent assisting clients throughout California to obtain all the relief available to them under federal and state law. Anthony attends a substantial number of seminars on cutting edge topics affecting Bankruptcy Law, Foreclosure, Real Estate and Debt Relief. This experience equips Anthony Hughes with the knowledge to get the best possible results in every case.
The approach Attorney Anthony Hughes takes is to first learn about each client as an individual. There is no mold that clients will fit into, so it is important to get the necessary background information to make an educated assessment of their options. Attorney Hughes is a bankruptcy specialist first and foremost. However, if Bankruptcy is not the right option, he is quick to explore alternatives for clients in the areas of loan modification, business reorganization outside of court, and debt settlement. Attorney Hughes views Bankruptcy as one of the most powerful legal tools for mitigating debt related issues in a fair and just manor. However, he says he “sees consumers filing too often when other strategies could have been applied resulting in an equally if not more amicable outcome.” Attorney Hughes believes that gaining a full understanding of each client’s needs is paramount to the rest of the process.
