We are not a large law firm.
We’re not spread out all across Southern California, with satellites dotting Los Angeles and an office in Valencia. We’re not so big there’s even a “we.” So when I tell you about the law firm, I’m really just telling you about me. I am the law firm.
Hi. I’m Hale Andrew Antico. And I have a passion for helping people.
I’m just one lawyer, a Santa Clarita bankruptcy attorney with high standards, who wants to give personalized service, with attention to detail, to my neighbors in Santa Clarita. I grew up in the SCV, went to school here, and have watched it change over the years. If you live in Stevenson Ranch or Saugus or Newhall or any other part of town, you’re my neighbor, and I want to help you.
As an incoming student at Cal State Northridge, I was offered credit cards at freshman orientation, and was disgusted by the industry. I went on to major in Psychology at CSUN, and learned how to understand people and relate to them. I waited tables through college, and developed a way to provide good service while connecting with people.
At Pepperdine Law, when we went around the room the first week, I learned I was just about the only one in my class who didn’t get their undergraduate degree in Political Science. In a room full of future lawyers, I knew I was different.
Starting Antico Law
In the early years of practicing law, I drove all over being a Los Angeles bankruptcy lawyer. I’d meet people at Starbucks and just talk with and help them over a cup of coffee. I eventually opened an office at Sierra Highway and Soledad in the Canyon Country part of Santa Clarita. I kept doing what I knew: providing outstanding customer service, while helping people who felt they had nowhere else to turn.
The Great Recession of 2009 happened. My little office became two bigger offices, and the team I assembled focused on helping many people save their homes and get back on their feet. I was humbled to win awards, and be honored by my peers.
The economy got better over the next ten years, and my law firm went back to being just me again, no more need for a second office.
In 2020, we had a Coronavirus pandemic which shut down our economy. People are suddenly unemployed through no fault of their own. They’re scared, worried about how they’ll pay for necessities.
In 2021, the Delta variant caused havoc with our economy, our homes, our income, and our lives. Now in 2022 there is inflation, gas prices, and the threat of a big impact from a recession. There’s reason for anxiety and fear as the future is uncertain.
Whatever lies ahead, I’ll keep doing what I’ve always done. I’ll help people start over, while providing compassion, expertise, and customer service.
Let’s meet over a cup of coffee.
