Jeffrey, Avvo Review
It’s been a year since I filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy and it was the best move I made. The word bankruptcy is a scary word but these guys will help you through it and at the end you’ll also see that it was a good move for you as well. The whole process was pretty simple, very straight forward, hassle free. Trust me it’s better than getting those annoying credit card company phone calls everyday. I would recommend anyone who’s going through financial problems to think about getting it resolved with Shaev and Fleischman.
Mr. Fleischman was very patient and listened to all my concerns regarding possibly filing for bankruptcy, As a senior citizen I had some questions as to my social security. pension and IRA. He talked me through what to expect and eased my fears.
Avvo User, Avvo Review
Mr. Shaev put me at ease, answered all my questions and made a difficult decision that much easier. I was treated with dignity and respect. The staff was responsive and helpful. What started out as a stressful situation, was made easier. I would recommend this firm to anyone considering bankruptcy.
I had a little hiccup with Sallie Mae, Navient, and Windham that could have potentially turned into a huge nightmare. However, with some expert advice through a one hour consultation from Jay, and I’ve ironed things out. Best money spent!

Cristina, Google Review
The Shaev and Fleischman team amazing. They don’t make you feel any sort of uncomfortable way, they walk you through everything, and they are always available to you. If you are considering Bankruptcy, this is definitely the team you want on your side.
I’ve never been sued before and was nervous to find a lawyer to help. I contacted Mr. Fleischman’s office for a consultation. Over the hour, he walked me through exactly what would happen with my case, explained the ins and outs of it all, and made it really simple to understand. Mr. Fleischman was able to settle my case and substantially lower my debt, and all I had to do was sit back and relax. Hire him today, you won’t regret it!
Jenesa, Avvo Review
I was feeling overwhelmed about my student loans. Having just filed bankruptcy, I didn’t know how to handle the $168K+ in outstanding student loan debt. Jay offered wonderful guidance.
Gina, Avvo User
Shaev and Fleischman is an outstanding firm. I did a great deal of research before choosing a firm, and they were recommended by several of my contacts. The numerous recommendations from my contacts as well as from various lawyers in the field (outside of NY) are certailnly warranted. From the initial phone consultation, to my in person meetings with Mr. Fleschman and then Mr. Shaev, to the handling of my documents by Ms. Devery, esq., the service I have received has been comprehensive, empathetic, and efficient. My numerous questions were answered honestly and thoughtfully, and clear understandable descriptions of the law and procedures were given. Additionally, everyone at the firm has communicated status/next steps and followed-thorugh in a timely manner. I truly appreciate the people and services at this firm; my anxieties (surrounding my circumstances and the process of addressing my predicament) have been greatly abated. I recommend Shaev and Fleischman without any hesitation whatsoever.
The Shaev and Fleischman team was consistently professional, helpful and prompt in their replies to my questions and concerns. I highly recommend them.
Jay is extremely knowledgeable, articulate and caring. However, I was most impressed with his unique approach to sharing legal advice which manifests a conscious and obvious effort not to waste your time or resources. Contrast that to the more typical approach which is oblivious to draining your wallet. Both ethically sound, but which would you prefer.
