The law firm provides services to both local and national clientele who seek to enforce claims against debtors and their assets throughout the United States.

Although located in Encino, California, a part of the city of Los Angeles, our firm offers services to clientele throughout the United States.

We opened our doors in 1978 as a top-quality collection law firm and have expanded into many related fields. We focus on major areas of commercial and business law and related litigation. These areas include real estate, business transactional work and litigation on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants. Our expertise includes California construction and mechanics' lien law, business contracts, commercial and consumer debt collection, creditor representation, judgment enforcement, California leasing law, real estate, landlord-tenant representation and unlawful detainer/eviction matters.

We provide assistance with commercial or consumer debt collection, creditor representation in or out of the bankruptcy context, judgment enforcement, landlord-tenant or real estate seller-buyer representation and in initiating eviction or unlawful detainer matters.

Our firm provides services to clients that range from small family owned businesses to multinational corporations. The firm's clients include, amongst others, Pacific Bell Directory Yellow Pages, the Sherwin-Williams Paint Company, Xtra Lease Inc., Key Bank of Maine, Dal Tile Corporation, Dunn Edwards Paint, MG Development, Poly-Pak America Corporation, Coca Cola, Abbott Labs, and Eljer Plumbingware. We also act as corporate counsel to the California Commercial Collection Association.

"As a small boutique law firm, we are sensitive to what clients demand and expect from their legal counsel. Each client deserves results and special attention regardless of its size. We emphasize the personal touch and believe that communication is the key to a successful attorney-client relationship. Consistent with this approach is that our clients can elect to receive copies of all documents that we prepare or receive on their behalf as well as memoranda of substantive conversations regarding their matters, whether with adversaries or with the clients themselves. We are always available to answer questions that a client may have and we make it an earmark of our firm to return all calls promptly. We have a superior support staff that is frequently complimented for their friendly disposition, attentiveness to detail and ability to assist clients with their needs when called upon to do so." said Bruce Hatkoff.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
