Biography

Louis J. Esbin is a Financial Lawyer with over twenty-four years of experience in Bankruptcy, Commercial Law, Secured and Unsecured Transactions, Buy-Outs, and Litigation, representing individuals, small businesses, corporate start-ups, as well as clients from Wall Street Broker Dealers, Las Vegas Casinos, Banks, and Nonbank Lenders. He is the only Certified Bankruptcy Specialist by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization practicing in the Santa Clarita Valley. He was a founding member and during 2008, he was president of the Central District Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys Association (with 160 members the second largest consumer bankruptcy attorney association in the United States).

Louis Esbin has an undergraduate degree in Finance and Accounting from the State University of New York at Albany and a law degree from Golden Gate University School of Law. During the first two years following law school he clerked for Bankruptcy Court judges in Oakland, California, as well as Los Angeles. Over his career, he has associated with law firms in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Century City and New York, from which he represented a diverse group of corporate and institutional clients. Throughout his career, representation has included both sides of the creditor-debtor relationship, and nearly all parties in interest that may participate in either a bankruptcy case, bankruptcy litigation or state court litigation.

Louis Esbin assists corporate management and sole proprietorship clients in the course of assessing and minimizing risk and maximizing returns in regards to default situations and work out arrangements that may arise due to the current changes in interest rates and the (in)ability of borrowers to service loans while straining under increased household or business budget expenses.
