Testimonials

Prior to learning about The Law Office of Julio E. Portilla, I had retained the services of a widely known law firm in NYC.   My calls went unanswered and what should’ve taken a couple of months took over one year!! This is when Mr. Portilla came to the rescue! It was already nerve-wrecking  (and embarrassing) having to file for personal bankruptcy – this was the very last thing I wanted to do.  But Julio reassured me I would be back on my feet in no time.  He walked me through the entire process and put me at ease.  It’s rare to find an attorney that makes you feel like a really good friend and puts your needs first. I knew I was in good hands and was confident my situation would get resolved.  He made the process of bankruptcy seemless and stress free.  He was always available for my calls (even on weekends if I had a question) and would patiently explain it all to me again, Mr. Portilla is the most genuine person I have the pleasure of knowing.  He is savvy, sharp, knowledgeable and highly skilled in his field of expertise.  There is no hidden agenda – just hard work and dedication in resolving your problems on a personal level.  He makes you feel you are his only client  – now that’s personal attention!! I would definitely refer Mr. Portilla (without reserve) to anyone seeking legal assistance because I know he’ll get the job done!  He’s the best attorney I know.  He promised me I’d get back on my feet – and I am – THANK YOU Julio!

I was referred to the Law Office of Mr. Portilla by a friend. When I filed for bankruptcy I was very nervous. The minute I stepped into Julio’s office and heard him speak I was put at ease. Julio really looks out for the interest of his clients, his knowledge and perseverance is underestimated. Talk about a guy who knows what he is doing. I was surprised at how attentive and responsive he was, usually you have to call the lawyers a few times until you get a response. Julio would contact me and walk me through the entire process. I never felt lost, and the entire process was very stress free thanks to Mr. Portilla. I have and will definitely recommend Mr. Portilla to my friends. Thank you Julio!


Mr. Portilla is a man who is not only a man of great knowledge in bankruptcy he is a man of integrity. I highly recommend Julio E. Portilla.

Prior to hiring Mr. Portilla, I had retained the services of a lawyer from a large bankruptcy mill that I saw advertised on TV. She wouldn’t return my calls, she would miss filing deadlines and she basically caused me more stress than my creditors. The best decision of my life was to end my relationship with this lawyer and hire Mr. Portilla. From day one, Julio was dependable and supportive, he would return my phone calls and would keep me completely informed on all aspects of my case. In a world where broken promises and individuals blinded by money become more and more common, it was refreshing to find someone who would put my needs before his own and truly offer me the services and the commitment to fix my life for the better. Mr. Portilla is a professional in all sense of the word. I owe a great deal to him and I sincerely recommend his services to anyone looking for help.

I have many friends that were giving me lawyer referrals, and to be honest, I was getting a little confused until someone mentioned Mr.Portilla to me saying that he was a dedicated, compassionate and an informed lawyer that would listen attentively, never keep you waiting and always returned calls promptly. I retained Mr.Portilla for those reasons and found all to be quite true. He handled every aspect of my case. The more you get to know him you realize how educated he is and how much he really wants to help people. I would highly recommend Mr.Portilla he made a huge difference at a very critical point in my life.” Thank you Julio!!!!

Mr. Portilla’s services came just in time for me. I had gone through a previous lawyer who out of no where was no longer practicing law but Mr. Portilla helped me, in many ways start over with my Chapter 13. He was also there whenever I would have any questions for him, or any type of concerns. I would recoment Mr. Portilla’s services if you want someone who will get things done for you.

I actually went to Mr. Portilla based on his great reviews and he is certainly a very talented and compassionate attorney. He was very professional and courteous, always ready to answer my questions and prompt to return my phone calls. I was REALLY scared about my financial situation and a little embarassed, Mr. Portilla made me feel at ease and explained several options to me very clearly and logically. It meant a lot to me to have someone who wasn’t judgmental and fought so vigorously on my behalf. He took the time to explain everything and I was able to trust him with my situation. While every other case was being sent back for mistakes, my case , prepared by Mr. Portilla went right through. He prepared the case perfectly and lead me through it with great professionalism, care and compassion. I honestly can’t say enough good things about Julio I am extremely happy with his work and highly recommend him!! You will not be disappointed.
