The firm, founded in 2008 by attorney Matthew D. Metzger, helps clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area eliminate debt and achieve financial solvency through the process of bankruptcy. The firm also maintains offices in San Francisco, San Mateo and San Jose.

Under the right circumstances, a bankruptcy filing may be the smartest economic move someone can make.  And that is all it is: an opportunity to rise out from the ashes of past debt service, to start fresh, to reorganize and restructure one’s debts.  The United States Bankruptcy Code offers several types of bankruptcy filings, most notably Chapters 7, 13, and 11.  Each chapter offers unique protections and opportunities for the right individual. 

The firm has represented hundreds of individuals through the bankruptcy process.  We have unique experience in all major chapters of bankruptcy – Chapters 7, 13, and 11. We tailor solutions to the particular needs of the client.  And, as exigencies require, we are prepared to handle emergency filings.

In addition to its bankruptcy services, Belvedere Legal, APC, provides criminal defense services to clients facing criminal charges. His experience in this area began in 2006, when he served for a year as a deputy district attorney for the San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office. He prosecuted criminal matters as well as civil cases under California's Unfair Competition Law.

Attorney Metzger subsequently served as a principal attorney at Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, where he focused on civil litigation in securities, predatory and abusive lending practices, and consumer and investor fraud class actions, among other issues.
