Highly reccomend, he made te process easy to understand and was very supportive throughout!
I did my homework a few years back when I was considering Chapter 13 in order to save my home from Mortgage company. Working with Bud was an absolute pleasure, we met several times in person to discuss the process and he expertly guided me through the
entire process. His advice was always spot on honest, direct and most importantly professional and accurate. He made every step of the process easy to understand and was always willing to answer any questions I had. He made sure I was prepared and ware of every step in the process and communicated promptly at all times. My case took longer then expected due to be discharged and Buds guidance and support made an extremely frustrating part of the process easier to tolerate, even though it was out of his control. His experience and calm demeanor goes a long way to help his clients like myself feel like we are being heard and understood and he takes the time to make sure you understand the whys and to do of what needs to happen. I felt very prepared and confident in my choice and would absolutely recommend him to anyone about to embark on the process.
The case ended very well for me
I hired Mr. Winterstein to handle my chapter 13 bankruptcy case and the case ended very well for me. This was the first time I'd ever needed to hire an attorney and knew little to nothing about courts or bankruptcy so I had a LOT of questions through
the process which Mr. Winterstein answered promptly and made sure I understood the answers, why it mattered, and what would would come next. This allowed me to plan and prepare for reach step so there were no surprises or undue stress along the way. It also meant that the various motions he recommended filing were granted leading to a final settlement that was more favorable to me than I believed was even possible. It was not a simple case and as I said I asked a lot of questions so the final bill was higher than I'd expected at the start, but he did always make it clear when more hours would be used to bring a motion/battle, what the likely return would be, and didn't recommend anything that didn't end up delivering a positive financial return on the cost of the hours invested. Overall it was as positive an experience as I could have hoped for.

A: As you've never filed your bankruptcy case, the bankruptcy court has no jurisdiction over your claim.
It may be that the US Trustee's office, or the California Bar Association, would be the more appropriate agency to entertain your grievance.
A: I read your question differently from the others who have answered, meaning I think you may have someone who owes you money, and you want to know whether, post-bankruptcy, post-discharge, you can pursue the one who owes you money.
The answer is yes, if you listed the debt on the sworn Schedules you filed in your bankruptcy case. If you didn't list your claim against whoever, then no, you probably do not have a right in law to pursue the claim now.
