Coronavirus Update

To Our Present and Future Clients

As a precaution in the fight against the spread of the Coronavirus, on March 19, 2020, Governor Newsom issued an Executive Order that everyone in the state must stay home except for people engaged in “essential activities”. Bankruptcy legal services is not listed as an “essential activity” under the current Order. Therefore, we will only be physically present at the office on a limited basis.

However, the Law Office of Scott Bell has been paperless for well over a decade. Furthermore, our technology infrastructure allows us to work virtually from anywhere. We are set up to handle this.

What this means is that we are still working for you. We may not physically be present at the office, but we are always a phone call, online chat, or email away. Rest assured that while you are looking after your family’s health in these trying times, we are looking after your financial health as well. You will get a fresh start.

Feel free to call us at 1-661-243-1737 just like you normally would. We are available to answer any questions you may have, work on your case by email and e-fax, and conduct free consultations by phone and FaceTime. All cases get filed electronically, so we can still stop collections and harassing phone calls like always.

The next couple of months will be much different than what we are used to. But our service to you, our clients, will never change. We will get through this.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with your concerns. Our office will continue to operate and be your full-service bankruptcy firm.

Our commitment to serving you has never been stronger. We look forward to continuing to serve you.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Our practice is built on the referrals of our clients.

The office is not your typical stuffy attorney’s office. Since this was my first experience I was very nervous but they really put me at ease and from that point on I knew that I was in good hands.

Scott made us comfortable with our decision and helped us through the entire process. He made it as painless and simple as such a thing can be, and all without charging the exorbitant prices that many others do!

Greetings to all,

Mere words do not compare to the deep gratitude I feel for everyone this concerns. You guys rock!!

Never thought the bankruptcy process could be so easy but Scott Bell made it that way. Not only is he knowledgeable, professional, and experienced in bankruptcy cases but he is down to earth and his rates were not over the top.

Thanks for turning my life around Scott!


Thank you so much for the help on my bankruptcy. I really don’t know how I would have made it through it without the help and compassion from you and your staff. It is something I never thought I would have to do. I would recommend you as an attorney for anyone. I will always say how much all of the people in your office were so kind to me.

Thank you again!

Mr. Bell and Staff:

The threatening phone calls have stopped and we no longer lie awake at night wondering how we will crawl out of a financial hole.  I know we paid you for your work and expertise, but you and your staff exceeded our expectations and made the painful process of declaring bankruptcy smoother than we could have hoped for, and I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for giving us peace of mind.
