Welcome to the Gupta Legal Center

The majority of our practice centers around civil litigation with an emphasis and Real Estate and Corporate Matters. We also work with a variety of clients on bankruptcy and transactional matters.


Civil Litigation

Attorneys love the term “Complex Litigation”. The reality is that most litigation disputes aren’t complex. Two or more parties have a disagreement. One or more of the parties is usually being unreasonable, isn’t communicating effectively, or simply doesn’t understand the implications of their actions. After exhausting all available options, a lawsuit has to be filed.

Most litigation is not complex, but it is emotionally and financially draining. Litigation is what is called an “unanticipated transaction cost” and its an expensive cost at that. The finances coupled with the length of time and uncertainty can make litigation challenging.

We can educate you about the process and help you understand all your options.


Bankruptcy Services

We’re not your run-of-the-mill bankruptcy firm. Ajay Gupta, esq. is one of 12 certified bankruptcy specialists in San Diego County. Mr. Gupta’s expertise coupled with our litigation experience gives us a unique insight into the world of bankruptcy. Our firm’s expertise in this arena is so well respected that many attorneys turn to us to handle their complex bankruptcy matters.

That being said, we do handle a wide array of debtor and creditor matters. Our firm has filed over 400 Chapter 7 bankruptcies. Our clients received a discharge in every Chapter 7 bankruptcy case we’ve filed except two. In those instances, the only reason our client did not receive a discharge is because the Client did not show up for the mandatory 341 hearing.

Call us to understand what you’re getting into before you file.


Other Matters

Most of our transactional clients start with a small litigation or bankruptcy matter. After working with us, we generate a relationship and we continue to service them on a wide array of issues.

Whether you’re drafting a contract, negotiating a partnership, working through a government administrative issue, or buying real estate, our firm can help guide you through the process.

If you’re having an issue that you think needs legal input, call us and we can help you understand whether or not it needs additional attention.
