Charles Laputka is the owner and manager of the Laputka Law Office:
My clients often want to know how they should handle burdensome debt obligations and get a fresh start towards a better financial future. Since 1997 I have helped thousands of people overcome mountains of debt in one way or another. As the owner of the Laputka Law Office, I regularly counsel clients regarding mortgage foreclosure, asset protection planning, and collection issues as well.
I began my career in the credit/debt industry one summer during high school where I worked in a call center placing cold calls to pre-qualified consumers in an attempt to have them apply for the Providian Bank Mastercard. This job taught me with a wealth of interpersonal and sales experience.
The next summer I began working in the repossession department of a local bank in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. This was my first experience learning about defaulted credit issues and hearing the personal stories of hard working men and women who were unable to make ends meet despite working long hours and multiple jobs.
At the end of that summer I returned to college in Pittsburgh and began working in the collections department of large national bank where I experienced hard working families, all over the country, struggling to make their mortgage and auto loan payments. Resolving loan defaults with hundreds of consumers over the next few years taught me compassion for people from all walks of life. Most importantly I learned that serious financial problems can happen to anyone.
After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 2000 I decided I would attend law school at the Duquesne University of Law School the following fall. To prepare for the rigors of law school I quit my job at the bank to focus on my studies. Six months later I felt I had adjusted well to law school, and I was broke, so I begin looking for a job again. I soon gained employment at a high-volume bankruptcy law firm in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I learned valuable lessons about personal and business finance. I began to enjoy Bankruptcy Law and working for the debtors rather than the creditors.
In the fall of 2004, in a twist of fate, I took a job with a large Allentown, Pennsylvania law firm practicing collections and bankruptcy law for creditors again. During this stage of my career I handled hundreds of foreclosure and repossession cases for local banks and learned all of the inside secrets of the process. Although I enjoyed my coworkers, the type of creditor representation work I experienced at this firm was not personally fulfilling for me and I was determined to start my own firm and represent consumers again.
In 2008, I decided to open the Laputka Law Office to provide experienced legal representation serving clients all over Pennsylvania. Since then I have never looked back, always expanding and growing my practice to serve more people each year! In 2016 and 2017 I authored a few books about bankruptcy and credit repair and I am happy to share them with anyone who is interested. I regularly present topics at national conventions about consumer bankruptcy, other related areas of law and law firm management. I truly enjoy my work every day and I love serving my clients needs no matter how large or small.
One thing I can assure you is the team of compassionate and dedicated professionals at the Laputka Law Office is like no other and we look forward to serving our clients’ needs every day.

Attorney Steven Ibarra is passionate about helping those in need and it shows in the quality of his work. Unlike other legal professionals, he takes the time to know the client and understand their story. He puts himself in their shoes to understand their pain, struggles, and condition so that he can better represent them in court. Mr. Ibarra attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Legal Studies. He then went on to earn his law degree from the University of West Los Angeles in 2007 and was awarded cum laude honors.
Mr. Ibarra is fluent in the Spanish language. He is particularly aware of the importance of quality representation by someone who can effectively communicate in their language.
Fractured family relationships and other family law matters are difficult by nature. Often emotionally charged, they can be complicated and volatile. Even in the most peaceful family law cases, having an experienced attorney to guide you can make all the difference.
Reasons for declaring bankruptcy vary widely from person to person. Bankruptcy shouldn’t be looked at in a negative light; on the contrary, those who qualify are making a smart financial decision to protect their finances and get a fresh start. Although the decision is a personal one, it all comes down to the amount of debt versus income and monthly cash flow. Have you maxed out your credit cards? Are creditors harassing you? If your disposable income isn’t enough to make a significant payment toward your debt, bankruptcy may be a viable option.
Mr. Ibarra’s experience in both the plaintiff and defense side of the law, including the areas of litigation and appeals, enables him to provide confident and vigorous representation to each and every client. With extensive experience, he understands how the automotive industry and insurance companies work. He is not afraid to take cases to trial if his clients are getting bullied by defiant insurance companies and their attorneys.
