Firm Overview

The law firm of Macco & Stern, LLP, is focused on assisting clients to obtain debt relief before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York. For over 30 years, our lawyers have counseled individuals, families and businesses seeking practical legal solutions to tough financial challenges. We help people who are trying to save their homes and regain financial stability, as well as those dealing with significant business debt.

When you contact us, you will meet directly with one of our partners, Michael J. Macco, who has been practicing law since 1982, or Richard L. Stern, practicing since 1978 — to evaluate key decisions and actions that can provide you with a fresh start. Both attorneys are longstanding court appointed bankruptcy trustees as well as determined advocates for our clients. We will represent you and give you advice. You will not receive legal advice from a paralegal. Only an experienced attorney will meet and council you. You are our client.

Knowledgeable in All Aspects of Debt Relief and Bankruptcy Law

If your situation calls for debt relief or involves the bankruptcy court, we have the knowledge and skill to handle it. In addition to helping people file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy as a step towards financial recovery, we handle business reorganization for privately held companies. We also represent creditors who need to assert their rights to protect their interests before the United States Bankruptcy Court.

We have a dedicated, professional staff prepared to handle every detail of your case with precision. Yet we are far from a bankruptcy "mill." With other bankruptcy law firms and services, you could find yourself dealing primarily with a paralegal. At Macco & Stern, L.L.P. your case will be handled by an experienced bankruptcy attorney, and you can call anytime for prompt, caring attention to your concerns. You can always expect your phone calls to be promptly returned by an attorney representing you.
