About the Firm

At the Law Firm of Christopher Hewitt, clients come first, and we all work efficiently to file bankruptcies within days. This law firm utilizes no cookie-cutter approach. Every client's case is unique and requires analysis of all possible courses of action. Chris has the experience and knowledge to interpret bankruptcy law instantly and ensure you understand all your options. There is nothing we cannot overcome together on your path to a new and fresh start.

The firm's goal is to be a safe place for you to talk to an attorney and feel at ease. The whole team focuses on delivering clear and concise information about your bankruptcy throughout the entire process, from filing to discharge. There are many steps when going through bankruptcy, so choosing a firm that will be clear about what to expect and help you through the process seamlessly is essential.

A notable adaptation in recent times involves the conduct of bankruptcy hearings. The bankruptcy court has transitioned to virtual platforms like Zoom and telephonic communication in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. By embracing this shift, the firm can cater to clients from every county in California.

About Law Office of Christopher Hewitt Bankruptcy Lawyer   Experienced Attorney

We have filed thousands of bankruptcies in California and have obtained excellent results for our clients. Your attorney must understand your rights under California Bankruptcy law and how the trustee will view and respond to your case. Using a firm that has been doing bankruptcies for nearly two decades in the local area can ensure you will get the best results under the law. Each court district and corresponding appointed trustee do things a bit differently. Chris has experience in all the Southern California Federal courts and knows how to ensure your case will run smoothly through the court system.

Diverse Specialization

Expertise in specific bankruptcy chapters, including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, to serve a wide range of clients. Chris has filed so many bankruptcies in the past that it is unlikely your problem will be one he has yet to deal with. Chris's practice is characterized by his profound experience with challenges in bankruptcy, including navigating through divorce, confronting lawsuits, dealing with state and federal jurisdiction discrepancies, understanding gay marriage laws in relevance to bankruptcy, resolving foreclosure situations, and addressing zombie debt collections, among other. By clearly understanding your personal and financial situation, Chris can recommend the best course of action and file your bankruptcy as fast as necessary.

Strong Reputation

We have a solid reputation for providing effective and ethical legal services. Most of our business comes from client referrals, which indicates that our clients are so happy with our services that they recommend us to friends and family. Chris has been working in the area for almost two decades and has strong familiarity and ties with local communities, Federal Court Judges, trustees, clerks, and everyone working in and with the bankruptcy course system in Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego Counties.

Client-Centric Approach

We are firmly committed to prioritizing clients' best interests and delivering personalized solutions. We go beyond what is expected to help our clients overcome difficult situations. We have been known to make house calls for clients unable to drive or with physical impairments, drive clients to the bank, and answer calls late at night for desperate people facing an impending foreclosure. We will answer all your questions and concerns during and throughout your bankruptcy process.


There are very few law firms where the lead attorney answers the phone himself, but that is what we pride ourselves on. Our team will also follow your case and let you know if anything urgent needs your attention.

Proactive Risk Management

By identifying and addressing potential risks to prevent complications during bankruptcy proceedings, we streamline the process so there will be no surprises. Our firm's experience will work to your advantage by understanding and explaining your options and the benefits and ramifications of the choices. You will be able to make a decision you are comfortable with.

Client Education

Our firm is responsible for informing clients about their rights and responsibilities throughout the bankruptcy process. You will receive all official notifications from the Superior Court of California through mail. However, upon the first meeting, we will provide you with a brochure with all the critical information you need to have handy during your bankruptcy process. Furthermore, our website can be an excellent resource for looking up the processes for your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy and all the documents we need from you to satisfy the court's requirements.

References and Testimonials

We have a wide range of customer testimonials and reviews from happy customers. You can visit our website Testimonials page, or visit our Google Business pages in Palm Desert, Riverside or San Clemente. We hope we will be able to add you to our list of satisfied clients in the upcoming months.


We understand that during difficult times it is not easy to pay for your bankruptcy and we work with our clients about payment, meeting deadlines, meeting times and places, and whatever you may require to ensure you have a successful experience dealing with your bankruptcy.

Client Privacy

We ensure your private information stays private. We use the latest technology protocols and software to protect your personal information. All paper documents are destroyed once we are no longer required to keep them on file.


We utilize three offices in Palm Desert, San Clemente, and Riverside to conveniently service Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, Los Angeles, and San Diego Counties. We can accept appointments at any of the three office locations.  Often, you can come in without a day or two, and if your case is urgent, we will make special arrangements. If you cannot physically travel and are within our service area, we can make special arrangements to come to your house to discuss your case. Additionally, we can do consultations regarding your case over Zoom or the phone to ensure we can service everyone regardless of their situation.

We found the law office of Christopher Hewitt to be a pleasant relationship in our legal situation. The law office was always responsive and always treated my questions as important and answered very quickly. The law office always advised me and I got great advise on our situation. I would highly recommend this law office for your legal dilemma. John H
Ibegan a business relationship with the Law Office of Christopher Hewitt and dealt with Mr. Hewitt directly. I utilized his service in debt management and because of him i am debt free within 6 months!!! I cannot thank him enough for all the hard work he did and how effective he was with all my creditors. I definitely could not have been this successful with eradicating my debt if i had not employed Mr. Hewitt's services. I strongly recommend him and his Law Office to anyone looking for legal help. Thank you so much!!! Debra B.
The Law Office of Chris Hewitt was great at handling my debt settlement. I was able to speak directly with the attorney multiple times and he always knew what was going on with my accounts and gave me clear advise. I did not feel like he made any false promises and was very realistic about what the outcomes would be. At the end of the year I was able to pay off all my credit cards at less than 40% of what I owed at the time I hired him. I would highly recommend Chris Hewitt for any one who has debt issues and does not want to file for bankruptcy. Karen H.
Basically, if I could describe my experience with Chris Hewitt in three words they would be, professional, straight-forward, and helpful. Going into filing chapter 7 bankruptcy, I had no clue where to begin. Chris took me where I was at and guided me along a process that proved to be clearing financially and emotionally. Plus, I am quite certain nobody could have done it for a better price. I would recommend his service to anybody. Thank you. Dylan H.
