There are bad organizations out there that take advantage of struggling people. We’ve seen how easy it is for borrowers to fall behind. And we’ve been able to help them create a better future.
Stiberman has dedicated his life’s work to helping victims. This first manifested itself with a dedication to help those that couldn’t afford an attorney, during his time with the Miami Dade Public Defender’s office. That experience led him to work in a real estate law firm in South Florida. He witnessed how easy it was for a bad deal to cause a lifetime of harm to a family’s finances. That’s why, over a decade ago, Stiberman chose to build Stiberman Law, a bankruptcy and debt consolidation law firm focused on helping Florida borrowers create a realistic plan to rebuild their financial future.
