Corona, California

Nestled just SouthWest of Riverside, Corona has around 160,000 people. Once the world's lemon capital, Corona is home to a diverse economy beautifully situated at the upper end of the Santa Ana River.

For almost two decades, my practice has been dedicated to assisting individual debtors in Corona and throughout Southern California. My expertise lies in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases and managing debt settlements, foreclosures, and wage garnishments. With offices in San Clemente, Riverside, and Palm Desert, I cater to clients across Riverside, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Los Angeles Counties.

History of Corona
Corona, California, originated primarily as an agricultural hub in the late 19th century, especially for citrus farming. Initially inhabited by the Tongva and Payómkawichum tribes, the area saw Spanish influence with missions and ranching. Founded in 1886 during the Southern California citrus boom, the South Riverside Land and Water Company established Corona, initially named South Riverside. The city's unique feature, a circular Grand Boulevard, inspired its name, meaning "crown" in Spanish.
Known as the "Lemon Capital of the World" in the early 20th century, Corona's economy heavily depended on citrus farming. However, by the 1980s, the decline in agriculture led to increased residential and industrial development. The city experienced significant growth post-World War II, evolving into a manufacturing hub and a suburban center for Greater Los Angeles. Today, Corona is recognized for its diverse businesses, cultural attractions, and commitment to preserving its rich heritage.

Economics of Corona
Being close to Riverside makes Corona a middle-class city in California. The poverty level is 8.5%, which is below the California average. The median home value is $624,000, slightly below the California median. As long as you don't have significantly more equity in your home than I listed above, we can use the homestead exemption to keep your home. Although the per capita income of $38,000 is below California's average, the median household income of almost $104,000 is above.  This difference can be attributed to Corona having 3.38 people per household, which is more than average. The higher number of people per household will help significantly if you have three or more people in your home for the means test. Corona is a city where a person's financial and home situation will make all the difference in whether they can file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. With an average commute of 35 minutes, many people have high transportation costs to Riverside for work.

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.
