Our Services:Chapter 7 BankruptcyHistory of Desert Hot Springs

Desert Hot Springs boasts a rich history centered around its renowned hot springs. The area was initially inhabited by the Cahuilla Native Americans, who utilized the natural hot springs for their therapeutic properties. In the early 20th century, the health benefits of these springs began to attract attention beyond the local population. L.W. Coffee, recognizing the potential of the hot springs, purchased land and established a health resort in the 1940s, laying the foundation for the city's development. The city was officially incorporated in 1963, spurred by the growing popularity of its hot mineral waters among those seeking health and relaxation. Throughout the years, Desert Hot Springs has grown into a unique desert community, maintaining its reputation for spa services and wellness tourism and leveraging its natural resources to foster a distinctive character among California's desert cities.

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.
