Gainesville Bankruptcy Attorney & Lawyer Barbara Cusumano

About Me

My name is Barbara Cusumano, and I have helped thousands of people throughout Central and North Florida in financial trouble for the past twenty-five years. I genuinely love helping people obtain a financial fresh start! I grew up in Gainesville, Florida, graduated from the University of Florida (Bachelor of Science) and from the University of Miami (Law Degree).

We have all had financial ups and downs. I understand the stress associated with loss of work, divorce, and unexpected illness. I truly feel for my clients when they are overwhelmed by debt. There is no shame in facing your financial situation and taking care of it the best way possible. There is such a tremendous feeling of relief when you receive your financial fresh start!

I believe my greatest strength is my extensive experience and knowledge in the field of bankruptcy and debt relief law (25 years) and my compassion for my clients. Bankruptcy truly helps people obtain a financial fresh start. Help is just a click or phone call away.

My staff and I are a phone call or an e-mail away. We promptly return all phone calls, our rates are reasonable, we are friendly and our turnaround time is fast. We treat our clients like family.
