History of La QuintaLa Quinta, a city in Riverside County, California, has an intriguing history of transforming from a native wilderness to a thriving modern community. The Cahuilla Native Americans were the area's original inhabitants, living off the land and creating a network of trails and footpaths.
The name "La Quinta" is Spanish for "the fifth," referring to the original "La Quinta Resort" established in the 1920s. This resort, a desert getaway, attracted Hollywood celebrities and socialites, contributing to the area's early reputation as a luxurious escape. The growth and development of La Quinta were significantly accelerated by the construction of the Coachella Canal in the early 20th century, which brought much-needed irrigation to the desert landscape, facilitating agriculture and settlement.
Incorporated as a city in 1982, La Quinta has grown rapidly, evolving from a small community into a popular destination known for its world-class golf courses, resorts, and cultural events. Its development has been carefully planned to balance growth with preserving its natural desert beauty and cultural heritage, making it a unique blend of modern luxury and historical charm.
Economy of La QuintaThe median income is higher than the surrounding areas, with most households making $93,000 or above, above the state median. Unless you have a high mortgage payment or other circumstances when you get above the median income, you typically have to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which can offer many benefits to people who bought their home in the last five years. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to remove junior mortgages that are undersecured due to the low market value of properties. Per capita income is above the California median at $59,000.

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.
