Why Us

Choosing LSAS is Easy

Leiderman Shelomith Alexander + Somodevilla, PLLC is a bankruptcy/insolvency and student loan law firm formed by the merger of two well-respected boutique law firms, whose members are all highly regarded in the legal community. Jonathan Leiderman, Zach Shelomith, Ido Alexander and Christian Somodevilla all share the same ideals, values and goals in achieving their clients’ objectives, in a caring and compassionate way. Legal matters are handled effectively, responsively and efficiently, in order to maximize value to clients.

We purposely limit our practice to bankruptcy/insolvency law, student loan law as well as related areas of law, so that our clients can have the individual attention that they need and deserve. This ensures that our attorneys can interact with each client through every step of the legal process.

Our focus on bankruptcy/insolvency issues and our combined 60 years of experience have given us the unique qualification and perspective to provide assistance to all parties involved in bankruptcy proceedings. Our bankruptcy attorneys have handled all chapters of bankruptcy and have provided representation to parties on all sides of the table in bankruptcy/insolvency cases, including representation of bankruptcy trustees.

Our attorneys proudly assist individuals with student loan debt problems, and have done so for several years. Our student loan law services are unique and custom-made for your individual student loan issue.

Our diverse experience and strong backgrounds within these fields ensure we can provide the representation you are entitled to.
