Michael E. Plotkin

Attorney at Law

From my 27+ years as an active member of the U.S. Army and Reserves, I came to see firsthand the kinds of difficulties and challenges individuals face when they are up against overwhelming odds. My legal practice stands on this foundation — the power and the purpose to be found in helping others and fighting for their rights. I started my own practice more than 40 years ago to provide my clients in Pasadena and the greater Los Angeles area with knowledgeable and professional representation in bankruptcy, business, family law, and criminal matters. From Chapter 7 bankruptcy and foreclosure defense to business litigation and child custody issues, I will work to ensure that your voice is heard, your rights are defended, and your life can move forward.
