Should I Go With Frank Barilla to File Bankruptcy to Save My Home? – Randy

Written by Steve Rhode

“Dear Steve,

I’m looking to file a chapter 13. I have to do this to save my house and get my payments back on track. Since July of this year I have met with a few different bankruptcy lawyers but I may go with Barilla law they have a fair price but I notice you had some articles on he and his firm or firms. Can you help me understand what the best route is 7 or 13?? I found this link to


Dear Randy,

Only you can decide if you want to use the services of attorney Frank Barilla to file bankruptcy. If it would be helpful at all, I do publish a couple of guides to help people check out any debt relief company they may consider using.

  2. How to Check Out a Business or Company to Avoid Getting Scammed or Ripped Off

There are two attorneys licensed in California under the name Frank Barilla and I don’t know specifically which one you might be talking about. You can search for information from the State Bar of California, here.

When you are considering your selection of a bankruptcy attorney, you should consider shopping using a number of criteria. One of those might be price and that’s completely understandable. But also factor in your “gut” reaction into the equation. The most important factor for me is that you feel comfortable with whoever you pick and have a good open channel of communications with the attorney and their office.

You seem to have already met with attorneys in your area but if you want to see if there is someone else in your area to meet with, you can click here to find a local bankruptcy attorney.

  • Hi Steve after careful review of the law office of Frank Francis Barilla we decided not to use them. As you said use my gut feeling we requested a 2nd meeting with him and I was told by his secretary prior to coming in I needed to sign a retainer. The 1st consultation was free but that was it his secretary was kinda of rude and would not answer our questions. We wanted to know if he had any referrals we could talk to and howling he has done bk work. I’m sad to say but if someone can’t answer basic questions from a potential client something is wrong. We read multiple complaints about attorney Barilla and his staff that is enough for me. Thanks again Mr.Rhodes you saved us from possibly becoming another upset client of this firm or far worst. Keep up the good work:)
