Attorney Profile

Michael Jaafar is a prominent National Bankruptcy attorney, and the founder of Jaafar Law Group PLLC and Fairmax Law ™, and a frequent contributor to Fox news. He practices in many bankruptcy courts around the country including Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan & Ohio. His name has been featured and written about in over 300 news publications around the world for his legal cases. He was also on the cover of Attorney At Law magazine as “Attorney of the month” (link: http://jaafarlawgroup.com/attorney-at-law-magazine-detroit-michael-jaafar/)

Michael Jaafar brings energy and determination to his representation of individuals and businesses. As a founder of Jaafar Law Group PLLC, he serves clients across two states from three office locations in Dearborn and Southfield, Michigan, and Independence, Ohio. Consumer bankruptcy law represents his primary area of legal practice along with business and real estate matters. He stands up for the rights of debtors and guides them through the process of filing for bankruptcy, repairing credit, or fighting foreclosure. Mr. Jaafar also aids entrepreneurs with business formation and serves as counsel for existing companies.

His undergraduate degree in business administration from the University of Michigan has given Mr. Jaafar a firm understanding of financial affairs. He subsequently was awarded his Juris Doctor by Wayne State University Law School and has become a well-known media personality. He often appears as a guest on regional and national radio and television news shows. Mr. Jaafar’s outgoing and assertive style is also evident in the courtroom where he tenaciously defends his clients, even when he has to lock horns with powerful adversaries. He belonged to a legal team that won a class-action settlement against a major fast food chain. In another high-profile case, he achieved a settlement for tenants mistreated by a landlord.

Mr. Jaafar’s publication credits include authoring a section of the Michigan Causes of Action Formbook produced by The Institute of Continuing Legal Education. When negotiations do not suffice to achieve his clients’ goals, he is an excellent litigator. Admitted to practice in Michigan, Mr. Jaafar is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
