Like most large cities, Philadelphia has its fair share of Bankruptcy Lawyers. However, not all Attorneys offer the same level of service or results. When it comes to selecting a great attorney to represent you, experience is certainly a big factor but so is the attorney’s commitment to their client.
Meeting with an experienced and qualified Philadelphia Bankruptcy Attorney is an important step that should not be skipped by a consumer struggling with debt. Remember, speaking with an attorney does not mean that you are committed to a bankruptcy filing. It is simply a wise move to insure that you are making an important financial decision based on the facts available to you.
If you live in or around the Philadelphia PA area, contacting the Law Firm of Coleman and Kempinski for a Free Consultation will go a long way toward helping you to understand what options you have available to get out of debt.
Kim Coleman is an accomplished bankruptcy lawyer in Philadelphia with wide and varied experience, including commercial and consumer bankruptcy proceedings. She focuses her practice on representing debtors in consumer bankruptcy proceedings and debtor’s rights cases. She has more than nineteen years of bankruptcy experience, five years prior to and during law school as a paralegal, and more than fourteen years as a licensed attorney.
Kim moved to Philadelphia in late 2008 and immediately began representing consumers in bankruptcy proceedings. Most recently she worked for HalprinLaw in South Philly, a firm dedicated to debtors’ rights. Prior to moving to Philadelphia, Kim worked as a consumer bankruptcy attorney in the Middle District of Pennsylvania with John Neblett, a certified consumer bankruptcy attorney.
From 2002 through 2007, Kim was an attorney with the law firm of Leech Tishman Fuscaldo & Lampl, LLC in Pittsburgh, PA where she worked on Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings by providing advice and counsel to businesses, trade creditors, secured creditors, and creditors’ committees. Prior to working in Pittsburgh, she represented consumers and small businesses in bankruptcy proceedings in the Southern and Northern Districts of Ohio and the Eastern District of Kentucky.
Ray Kempinski worked as an illustrator and designer prior to graduating Temple University’s Beasley School of Law evening division in 2004. As a result of his artistic background, he brings an enthusiasm and a creative approach to the law. He focuses his practice on guiding consumers through personal Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings.
Conducting himself in a manner that conveys an empathy and compassion established largely upon a foundation built on a strong blue-collar working class upbringing in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia, Ray strives to make a difficult process as palatable as possible to those individuals he represents.
Prior to forming Coleman & Kempinski, Ray worked as an associate at HalprinLaw, exclusively representing clients in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings, and with the Law Office of Arthur Pomerantz in St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands, focusing primarily in real estate transactions and related litigation.
With more than 20 years of bankruptcy experience between them, Kim Coleman and Ray Kempinski certainly know the ins and outs of the Pennsylvania bankruptcy laws, however the experience of real clients is what I pay the most attention to.
Here are a few of their client testimonials from their Google Places page:

So, a bankruptcy attorney isn’t somewhere you ever want to go. But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, right? Well, working with Kim Coleman was perfectly smooth all the way. I had the feeling that I was doing something positive, and a year later I still do. Kim still answers my calls for tips about getting back on track. Just have questions to see if bankruptcy is for you? That’s how I started, and I’m happy to write a review for this small independent Philly company.

Knowing that these are really difficult times for everybody, I still was not anxious to consider bankruptcy. I phoned and spoke to Kim at length who asked some questions and used both ears to listen! Working with Kim was a real pleasure. Easy to get a hold of, and if left messages she always returned the call. As a former Colonel from MASH used to say, “There’s not enough O’s in Smooth!” Kim made the entire process painless! Call her with questions.
As a consumer in debt, you will find that it is almost impossible to find honest information about the bankruptcy process from programs that sell alternatives to bankruptcy. You will hear things like bankruptcy will ruin your life, your credit, your job prospects, and your ability to even rent a place to live. Unfortunately most of what you hear about bankruptcy just isn’t true. Bankruptcy is certainly not the answer for all situations, but the only way to know for sure is to ask a Philadelphia bankruptcy lawyer to review your situation and explain how a bankruptcy filing would look for you.
