About Us

Boutique Bankruptcy and Student Loan Law Firm Serving Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties

Leiderman Shelomith Alexander + Somodevilla, PLLC was founded by Jonathan Leiderman, Zach Shelomith, Ido Alexander and Christian Somodevilla in 2016, as the culmination of a merger between two existing and well-respected boutique bankruptcy law firms. The predecessor law firms built an excellent reputation across South Florida, handling both personal and corporate bankruptcy matters, including Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases, as well as state court Assignments for the Benefit of Creditors and student loan law matters. Our team carried that solid reputation and valuable experience to create the LSAS team you see today.

What Makes Us the Right Law Firm for You?

At Leiderman Shelomith Alexander + Somodevilla, PLLC, we purposely limit our primary practice to bankruptcy law and student loan law, so our clients receive the individual attention they need and deserve. This ensures our attorneys can interact with each client through every step of the legal process.

In addition to our outstanding personal service, we provide:

  • Vast experience: We have more than 70 years of combined legal experience practicing bankruptcy law. We have worked with, and continue to work with, bankruptcy trustees and creditors, giving us a unique and valuable perspective on the entire bankruptcy process. While our primary practice is limited to bankruptcy law, we are a full service bankruptcy law firm, meaning we can handle all types of bankruptcy cases, including liquidations and reorganizations. In addition, as a natural extension of our bankruptcy practice, we provide student loan law services and help you take charge of your student loan debt.
  • Compassionate approach: We understand that dealing with bankruptcy issues and/or student loan debt can be frustrating. Our approach is that we treat you with respect, compassion, and understanding. We ensure that every case is handled with the utmost care, precision, and expertise. Unlike bankruptcy “mills”, which churn out client after client, we provide you with the personal care and attention that you deserve, through every step of the legal process.
  • Reputation and respect in the legal community: Our firm’s attorneys have been selected to the Florida Super Lawyers list and the Florida Rising Stars list, and we’ve been recognized as up-and-comers by the South Florida Legal Guide and Florida Legal Elite. We are also frequent lecturers at seminars and community programs, speaking about bankruptcy law and student loan law to attorneys and the general public. Our firm, Jonathan Leiderman, and Zach Shelomith, are AV Preeminent Rated Attorneys, awarded by LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell, for having obtained the highest possible peer-review rating for their ethical standards and legal ability.

Our firm represents debtors, creditors, and bankruptcy trustees in all aspects of bankruptcy cases, including litigation and appeals, handling both liquidations and reorganizations. We also proudly assist individuals with taking charge of their student loan debt. We have two offices to best serve our clients in downtown Miami and suburban Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and we proudly handle bankruptcy and student loan matters throughout the state of Florida.
