Shaye was an informative and wonderful partner throughout the process of doing something I didn't want to do. In addition to answering my many questions, her videos were also educational on what to expect during and after a bankruptcy filing. Shaye was very organized with the paperwork and information gathering process, and everything went as she described it to me with no surprises or unexpected hiccups along the way. My case was finalized today with the court issuing a full discharge. Shaye was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

I was recently the beneficiary of Mrs Larkins skill and knowledge regarding California State Law and paid COVID leave. I know this is outside her normal practice but she managed to find time and write a formal letter with legal guidelines that I presented to my place of employment so I could get paid. This was time off that did not come from my PTO accruement. Without Mrs. Larkins assistance, I am certain I would not have been paid.
I can not recommend Mrs Larkin enough! She went above and beyond the call to help me!

When I met Shaye I immediately felt at ease and hiring her was the best decision I made. Shaye was personable and knowledgeable from the start and throughout my journey. She was responsive to my questions and issues, even through the pandemic she held my hand through it all. I felt supported and protected through the entire process. I am grateful I had Shaye by my side.

I am so grateful that my bankruptcy case has been successfully resolved and I am so thankful that I chose Shaye Larkin as my attorney. She was very supportive, clear, informative, compassionate, and professional in all aspects of the proceedings. In addition, she has created YouTube presentations that were very helpful in clarifying the bankruptcy process. She was always very prompt in responding to my questions and concerns and I always had the feeling that my case was in very competent hands and that she cared about me as a person as we proceeded through the case.
I highly recommend Shaye Larkin as your bankruptcy attorney without any reservation

For the past year or two, I found myself in a pile of debt due to being unemployed and not making the best financial decisions. I knew that bankruptcy was my only option at this point, but I had been putting it off because of all the negative things we hear about it. I finally said enough is enough and found Shaye on Yelp. During our consultation, Shaye was thorough in describing what this process would entail. Her calming energy made me feel comfortable and confident that I would get through this with her guidance. She is organized, punctual, patient, understanding, and straight to the point. Because of Shaye’s hard work, I am FREE of debt! I have never felt so relieved and ready to start enjoying my life again, but with the knowledge of how to prioritize saving money and spending it wisely. I cannot thank Shaye enough!!!

Found Shaye via yelp. Didn't have a ton of reviews but what was there were all good reviews. Gave it a chance to contact her via e-mail, and she was prompt in replying. Scheduled a phone consult quickly to go over my bankruptcy case. Was professional but also sensitive to my situation. She had better than competitive rates, again being sensitive to my circumstances. Hired shortly after the consult and the whole bankruptcy was pretty quick and painless. She is thorough and quick to reply to e-mails/texts. I would definitely recommend Shaye.

Shaye Larkin is the best at what she does. Although my bankruptcy was 10 years ago, I don’t think I got a chance to review her. She is understanding, doesn’t judge and a wonderful lawyer and person. I couldn’t have been in better hands.

Shaye is a fantastic lawyer. I was quite nervous about the whole bankruptcy process. Shaye put my mind at ease by being patient, personable and caring. The whole experience from start to finish went totally smooth. On the day of my hearing, Shaye was a complete professional (and fun to hang around with too). I highly recommend her services to anyone looking to declare bankruptcy.

My brother was going through a stressful time and living in a shelter. He wanted to file for bankruptcy. Since I took care of all his business affairs, I made calls to several bankruptcy attorneys. From my first call to Shaye Larkin and after our consultation, I knew she was the attorney to assist us.
Shaye was very helpful with guiding us through the legal process. She is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and genuinely cares about helping people. I appreciated how quickly she returned calls, responded to emails and text messages. There was always communication. She was always courteous, professional and I loved that she works directly with her clients.
My brother passed before his court date however Shaye made sure I received his discharge.
It was a pleasure to work with Shaye. So grateful!
Shaye, thank you for your support and hard work.
I highly recommend Shaye Larkin. She is the best!

Shaye Larkin was very respectful and professional during my bankruptcy case. I have a disability that made me go bankrupt and she was very understanding and nonjudgmental that it made the whole bankruptcy journey a lot better despite the fact that going bankrupt is a very depressing situation. I would definitely recommend Shaye to my friends and family if their financial situation unfortunately suffers. In addition, Shaye is very charismatic which makes every encounter with her pleasant.

I cannot praise the truly professional and capable services of my attorney Shaye Larkin enough. Always prepared, she guided me through all our many tasks with great efficiency. We were under huge time constraints to perform and we always met our deadlines. Her fee considered my circumstance and was generous to me. She was always pleasant to work with, especially under pressure. Kept me moving to meet our stated goals. There were a couple of bumps in the performance of the court and those she recognized immediately and handled promptly to resolve. In short, I was very fortunate to have found her and would recommend her highly to anyone who might require her services in the future.

My fiance passed away suddenly and just as sudden I found myself drowning in credit card debt that I was able to manage prior. Facing the fact that I may need to file bankruptcy I was embarrassed and nervous and just overall depressed and confused where to start. By luck I found Shaye! From the first meeting she put me at ease and made me feel comfortable as she explained the process very thoroughly. It is a bit of a long process, and she was there each step of the way from gathering all the necessary info (She gives a checklist so you don't miss anything), filing, and coming with me to the deposition. I was very nervous that day and again, she put me right at ease - I would say there is just something calming, a good vibe that I don't think you would get from another attorney. My case was a very difficult one and she worked very hard to get me a Chapter 7 instead of Chapter 11. She was extremely professional, answered all my questions, and explained the entire process each step of the way. She is professional and extremely thorough and always answers emails promptly (within the hour!)., She also handled my reaffirmation agreement for my vehicle, again with no worries on my end. I really can't say enough how she made me feel like I could get through this process and everything was going to work out and it did! She is really the best at what she does and I would HIGHLY recommend anyone going through this process to choose her you will not regret it.

After many years of trying to handle my over whelming debts my self, I was faced with the realization that I must resolve my debts with a chapter 7 bankruptcy. My CPA suggested Shaye, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Honestly, I was embarrassed at first because of my negative associations of doing a bankruptcy. Shaye was knowledgeable, professional, caring and prompt through the entire process. Shaye bestowed me with the confidence and reassurance that I could get through this, and that a fresh start was in fact the right move. Shaye handled all the details and executed her end of the process with professionalism, precision and promptness. My questions were always answered and explained completely, thoroughly and promptly; she made the process easy for me to understand. Thank you Shaye, you were an angel for me and my family! I would recommend Shaye to anyone who is faced with this difficult decision. Thank you a thousand times!

Filing bankruptcy was a daunting prospect before I found Shaye Larkin. I felt like I was in the best hands and so lucky to have found her. She is articulate, concise and extremely professional while maintaining a caring and considerate manner. And extremely thorough. Everything you would want in your lawyer while going through the bankruptcy process. I really appreciate how reassuring and supportive she was the whole time she was handling my case. Thank you, thank you Shaye.

From start to finish, my experience with Shaye was incredible. It was my first time ever filing for bankruptcy, a Chapter 7, and I did not know what to expect. I did some research in choosing the right lawyer for me, and when I came across Shaye's profile on Avvo, and after reading all the positive reviews, I figured she'd be the right person to get the job done. Fortunately, I was right! She returned my initial call right away, and we had a quick telephone consultation. I met with her in person within a few days after that phone call, to start the filing process, and she was on top of everything. Shaye was quick, thorough, and extremely easy to talk to. She explained everything to me and was very patient with all of my questions. She definitely put me at ease with this whole process. When the hearing date finally came, it was the easiest day ever. Shaye had already done all the necessary work, so the hearing was painless and smooth. I recently received my discharge letter, and could not have been more happy that this is all over with and in the past. I was fortunate enough to go with my gut instinct and hire Shaye Larkin as my attorney. If you are looking for the right person to get you through this hurdle, go no further than Shaye, trust me!

Deciding to file for bankruptcy was a very tough decision for me. Then choosing a lawyer was an added burden. I want anyone reading this to know that you don't have to struggle with choosing your lawyer. Just choose Ms. Larkin.
I called a few lawyers and Shaye's rates were amongst the lowest. I think this is because she honestly cares about helping those who are down on their luck, not just about getting paid. I know that's hard to believe, but you'll see what I mean when you meet her. She's a good lawyer and a good person.
During our three month relationship (that's how long it takes to get your discharge), Shaye was right there with me every step of the way. She very promptly answered every question I had (and I had a lot of questions).
She accompanied me to the meeting of creditors where she knew many people personally, including the trustee. I watched other debtors go in front of the trustee and it was clear that their lawyers were woefully under-prepared, making for a very uncomfortable experience for them. My questioning was over in probably under 2 minutes and the trustee was visibly pleased that we were so well-prepared.
Shaye, I want to thank you so much for going above and beyond for me!

Shaye was thoughtful and prepared for my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. She assisted me through the whole process and was available by phone to speak with personally all the time. She always answered all of my questions and helped me through my difficult life circumstances. That is hard to come by these days when it comes to lawyers. She was always on time and she filed my bankruptcy paperwork quickly which was so helpful for me to get it done and out of the way fast! I found her to be friendly, kind, and through with the entire process. She is a gem to work with and I hope to never have to file bankruptcy again but if I do I will definitely be calling her to handle it. Thank you Shaye it was a pleasure working with you!

Shaye Larkin, is a very through attorney. She explains the process,

I'd never had to file bankruptcy before, and had less than no clue what to do. I researched several lawyers in the area, and they all seemed cold and were definitely too expensive.
What drew me to Share Larkin was her compassion and warmth. She made me feel welcomed and was willing to work with me on fees since my income is so low.
My bankruptcy was time sensitive and she worked with me very hard to get everything filed in time. I really appreciate her hard work and personable service. I would 150% hire her again and tell everyone I know to go to her as well.

I found Shaye through this site and was not disappointed. I was going through a chapter 13 bankruptcy which left me very worried and stressed. Shaye walked me through the entire process and informed me of all my options. She made sure I knew every detail of the process I was going through and it reassured me that I had chosen the right lawyer. Hearing time came and there was someone there whose lawyer never showed up but Shaye has always been prepared. I truly thank her for all the help.

I am so glad that I was fortunate enough to connect with Attorney Shaye Larkin for my Bankruptcy filing. I had a lot of trepidation going into the process, but Shaye's thoroughness, reassurance, professionalism, empathy, knowledge, and patience in explaining this undertaking put me at total ease. Her communication all throughout this endeavor was most excellent, utilizing various modes (E-Mail, phone, text, in-person, mail). Right at the initial consultation, you are going to get a running start, so be prepared to answer, as well as ask, questions. The consultation is when Shaye lays out the groundwork of the process, explaining the various types of Bankruptcy filings, timelines, fees, etc. With all that Shaye does to make sure that your case moves forward, keep in mind that you have to do your part as well. I made sure to promptly respond to Shaye's communications, providing any requested documentation and answering any questions. My case progressed and concluded pretty much the way Shaye said it would.

Shaye did an amazing job with my bankruptcy. She was very knowledgeable and kind. She knew this was a difficult process for me and she went above and beyond the time I paid her for to explain all the details to me over and over again when I got confused and had many questions. She takes you through all you have to do and helps you get everything done. He prices are well below other lawyers and she does a much better job. She really understands when people have financial difficulties and does not over charge them at all. In fact she could charge twice as much for her services. She knows the bankruptcy law very well. She was able to get me qualified for chapter 7 and it went very smoothy. She is a very caring kind person and it was a pleasure working with her.

You're here looking for an attorney or seeking legal advice. Not the definition of fun, right? Oh, and you need an attorney quickly. Add in not wanting to hire a mediocre attorney. Stress building yet? I have that t-shirt, and have worn it multiple times in divorce (plural) and didn't want to wear it again in bankruptcy.
While the prospect of filing for bankruptcy wasn't appealing, I can tell you Shaye has made the whole process a heck of a lot easier than I would have thought. Starting from the initial communication via phone, to the first meeting to go over the opening set of documents, and throughout all exchanges of communication via text/phone/email and in-person, Shaye has been absolutely fantastic and supportive. Human element mixed with legal representation? Yep.
I don't know if Shaye considered me to be organized with my documents or not, though I can say for certain it seemed to help that I was able to produce most documentation rather quickly and that's great because Shaye moves fast...like, lightning fast. There is no messing around with Shaye. She's on point, quick to respond, quick to deliver documents for signing, and quick to file with the court. She did not miss any deadlines.
Yet another impressive thing about Shaye is her willingness to admit when she's not 100% positive of a question or problem being presented and will confer with her colleagues. I want someone knowledgeable, yet humble enough to admit he/she doesn't know everything.
Would I recommend Shaye Larkin to anyone in need of a bankruptcy attorney? Absolutely and without reservation or hesitation. Shaye is gold and 100% deserving of the high ratings and positive reviews.

I listenened to Len Tillem on KGO Radio in SF for years. When I emailed him about a bankruptcy lawyer, he immediately referred me to Shaye. I had an initial consultation with her where she explained all bankruptcy options very clearly and concisely. I went back and forth trying to decide for a year. She ACTUALLY followed up with ME to ask what I wanted to do. I was very notice, but knew this was something I needed to do. We proceeded and all of my paperwork and proceedings went smoothly. Shaye has the utmost attention to detail, is responsive to emails, knows the system and handles creditor inquiries. Shaye is focused on areas that she knows well and not trying to be all over the place. I highly recommend her.

Shaye Larkin handled our Chapter 13 bankruptcy. She is amazing in every way: professional, ethical, thorough, experienced, and committed. She held our feet to the fire to produce the necessary documentation and she is a stickler for details which is why she is so successful and respected in her field. All questions are answered promptly and in a way which a lay person can understand. Following the discharge of our case, required documentation from our mortgage lender was not forthcoming. Shaye continued to send letters and make phone calls on our behalf. She advised us of our options and cautioned us about moving too quickly by taking further legal action which she would not be able to handle and which could prove costly. Finally, after about four months, we got the required documentation. During that entire time, Shaye continued to work on our behalf. We cannot say enough good things about her. Start to finish you cannot find better representation. We will be forever grateful for the work she did and the lessons we learned.

Shaye Larkin is not only copiously aware of the long-term picture and scrupulously attentive to details,
she is kind, good-humored, thoughtful, friendly, and accepting.
The ebullience of her character made our conversations enjoyable,

Shaye Larkin is very knowledgeable and she is able to explain things clearly. I like the fact that she was very comforting and non-judgmental. Shaye was always quick to respond to me with all the answers I needed. I felt very safe and confident with her. After she review my case she call me right the next day and advice me that my debt was probably beyond the statute of limitations and would drop off my credit report in a less than two years, and that bankruptcy was probably not necessary.
I highly recommend Shaye Larkin to anyone considering bankruptcy.

I strongly recommend Shaye Larkin's services as a bankruptcy attorney. I filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection at the end of 2013. Shaye helped me through the process of data gathering and paperwork preparation. Shaye determined that I passed the Chapter 7 Means Test, filed the paperwork electronically for Chapter 7, and attended the Meeting with the Trustee and Creditors to provide support, and to see the process through to completion.
Shaye is very professional, clear about what she can and cannot do to assist a client, and is scrupulously honest. Shaye is very pleasant to work with, and is very supportive. It was clear at the Meeting with the Trustee and Creditors, that Shaye is well respected not only by the Trustee, but also her colleagues. Shaye is in a class of her own, and I recommend her to you unreservedly.

The recession of 2009 hit me hard. Up until that point, I was making a decent living and had fantastic credit. I was proud of my accomplishments and never would have imagined it could all go away due to no real fault of my own, but that's exactly what happened when my small business floundered in the economy. Credit card bills began piling up, when there was a time not long ago that I paid the full balance off every month; my car was repossessed, my phone rang constantly with rude bill collectors, and finally late last year I was served with a summons; one of my creditors was suing me. I had no choice but to file bankruptcy at this point, although I truly hoped that one day my life would return to normal and I could honor my debts. The real world doesn't work this way, and the bankruptcy process was a tough reminder of that fact. Luckily, I was an avid listener of the Len Tillem radio show, and his recommendation of Shaye Larkin compelled me to email her. I sent her a message on a Sunday night, and was astonished when she replied immediately! ~ and I'm pleased to say, that's how it was with Shaye for the entire process. She was friendly, approachable, personable, and no-nonsense from the beginning to the end, and I will consider her a friend for life. She never looked down on me or my situation, and never passed judgment on me. That said, the bankruptcy process was one of the most stressful and time-consuming events of my life! The only consolation for me was that I had Shaye to guide me through it all. I know there were times that my naivete challenged her patience, but this is ultimately why she is the attorney and I am the client! Trust in Shaye, she is the real deal! I cannot thank her enough!

My luckiest day of 2012 was when a friend told me about Shaye and her bankruptcy practice. My friend had learned about her while listening to Len Tillem's consumer advice radio talk show on KGO, and he suggested I call Shaye because he knew I had been putting off filing bankruptcy because of the costs and overall hassle. My only conflict is decide who deserves the most thanks -- my friend for the referral -- or Shaye.
During my first conversation with Shaye, she asked me a handful of questions and then gave me simple, basic information about just what was involved in the bankruptcy process, I was finally able to see that there would be light at the end of the tunnel. Shaye's explanation of what was required of me to file bankruptcy, including necessary personal and financial documents, legal/court fees, and time commitments, was very clear and precise. And she had my full trust and confidence from the start. She has varied and extensive experience, and she knew the answer and/or solved the problems before they came to fruition. Because of my tendency to procrastinate, especially when facing stressful and unpleasant circumstances, finding Shaye was a godsend beyond words. Thank you Shaye for taking the reins and make this process as pleasant as possible. And, thanks mostly for your caring, patience and understanding.

From the moment we reached out to Shaye for a consultation, she was there for us. We are in Los Angeles and Shaye is based in San Francisco. If we scheduled a phone meeting, she was on the line at the exact time we scheduled the call. So even though we are a few hundred miles away, we decided to hire her as a our lawyer.
From beginning to end Shaye kept us informed about our case. Shaye was extremely detail oriented. She left no stone unturned. I believe her attention to detail helped get a judgement in our favor.
Shaye is also very personable and friendly. She speaks to you as a human and never talks down to you. She always explained the law very clearly and was easy to understand.
Shaye really invests herself in the case and the client. It seemed as though we were her only clients and she worked on our case around the clock.
Lastly, Shaye does all the work herself. She does not use assistants or stand-in lawyers. This kept her well versed in our case. She even came to Los Angeles for our hearing.

Very helpful and attentive. She helped us every step of the way and answered all our questions. We hesitated filing for years and she helped us see its not that difficult and the fresh start we've gotten is invaluable.
