La Jolla, California, Bankruptcy Attorney and Business Litigator

Darvy Mack Cohan routinely achieves his clients' objectives through litigation. He has done this with thorough preparation that keeps the best interests of the client firmly before him. His career has spanned more than 30 years-years in which he has learned that involving the client throughout the legal process usually produces the best results.

Focusing on bankruptcy and business litigation

He represents individuals, businesses and business owners. He focuses on solving legal problems involving debt relief and creditor’s rights in bankruptcy, and cases involving contracts, business formation and real estate. He appears for clients in these and in other matters in state superior and appellate courts as well as in all federal district and bankruptcy courts in California; he also handles appeals in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

In all matters, he is mindful of the client's concern about legal costs. Attorney Darvy Mack Cohan brings to his client's matters the expertise and experience of a large law firm while providing the efficiency of a one-on-one relationship between the attorney and the client. He thus avoids duplication of efforts and expenses that often result when several lawyers work on the same case. He has gained a reputation as an efficient lawyer who works hard for his clients and is AV* rated by his peers through by Martindale-Hubbell's peer review rating service for attorneys.

Debtor representation in Chapters 7, 11 and 13 and Bankruptcy litigation and Appeals

He has successfully obtained debt relief and a fresh start for many bankruptcy clients, both individuals and businesses through the filing of Chapter 7 bankruptcy petitions, where applicable, or through successful redorganizations under Chapter 11 or Chapter 13. He has more than 25 years experience as a creditors' rights attorney, representing creditors in fraud and other non-dischargeable debt matters, as well as in relief from stay for the recovery of secured real property and personal property. However, he uses his experience and understanding of the bankruptcy code to defend debtors in bankruptcy litigations and to represent business debtors, especially small business debtors, in bankruptcy reorganizations.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
