Firm Overview

Barbara L. Franklin, Esq., Attorney at Law

Finding an attorney you trust and want to work with can be a difficult task. Some individuals hire law firms and are disappointed to find out the attorney is difficult to communicate with or inaccessible, and their case has been passed from attorney to attorney. As a solo practitioner, my clients never have to be concerned about these issues. My clients communicate directly with me, and I handle each case in full with competent paralegal assistance.

I am Barbara L. Franklin, Esq.; I provide legal counseling and representation in the practice areas of bankruptcy law and real estate law. My office is located in Honoka`a on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Experienced, Personal Service at Reasonable Rates

Barbara L. Franklin, Esq., Attorney at Law offers clients experienced legal representation, a high level of personal service and communication at a reasonable rate. I have been practicing bankruptcy law for more than 20 years. My bankruptcy experience includes:

  • Legal representation and advice
  • Expert witness in criminal trials
  • Author on bankruptcy topics
  • Presenter at numerous bankruptcy seminars
  • Assistant United States Trustee for the District of Alaska

As a result of my extensive experience, I am able to offer my clients several options and provide advice on which alternative will offer the best outcome for their situation.

In addition to my experience, I am committed to providing personalized client services. My clients can rely on the fact that I am accessible, communicate readily with them by returning phone calls and e-mail promptly. I handle cases efficiently and provide cost-effective services for all of my clients.

"My philosophy: The sooner you see an attorney about financial issues the better off you will be. When my clients provide me with complete and honest information it makes it easier for me to do everything within the confines of the law to address their financial problems. If I have the information before the problem is critical, I am able to protect more assets for my clients, and protect their ability to obtain a discharge of their debts."
