  • Let me begin by saying I first recommend a friend to Mr. Pankin office, I trusted him by just seeing his television add, my friend took my advice and was very satisfied with the result from Mr. Pankin office she was able to put her all her worries away... I myself did not know that I would have come in to some real finical difficulties and when that time came I went to Mr. Pankin office for help, after my first vista I know I was in good hands. Mr. Pankin and his staff assure me that I would be ok and in the end it was... as Mr Pankin says "bankruptcy is not the end its just a new beginning" now its all over for me I can now sleep a lot better at night... I would recommend Mr Pankin to any who think that they need this kind of help... Thank you Mr. Pankin & staff


  • The day I went for my initial interview, I was so nervous. After speaking with Robert, I felt comfortable and confident choosing David I Pankin, PC to represent me. They took the time to make sure all my questions and concerns were addressed. On the day I had to appear in court, Roger was there to support and counsel me and Zaira made sure I was well prepared for my court date. I wouldn't hesitate recommending these knowledgeable, professional and courteous individuals to my friends and family.


  • From the first time we walked into Mr. Pankin's office, everyone on the staff was very professional and made us feel very comfortable. It was a smooth process throughout our experience. We highly recommend Mr. Pankin and his associates. Thank you to everyone for all your help. Joe and Rosanna


  • I recently filed bankruptcy through the law office of David Pankin. Honestly I didn't know what to expect. I thought it would be a long drawn out expensive process, which I must say it wasn't. The payment plans were affordable. The garnishment stopped almost immediately. I've already began receiving car loan offers. I have opened a bank account as well as received my first credit card since filing. So if you are considering filing bankruptcy, David Pankin and his associates are the way to go. Thanks for giving me my life back


  • I am extremely pleased with the work this law office did for my family. I was in a situation where time and execution was everything and Mr. Pankin's office and all of the staff made it happen . I recommend their service to anyone needing results in a timely manner. Simply excellent. Thank you all.
