In April of 1995, Wolff & Wolff was formed when Ruby A. Wolff, and her mother-in-law, Antoinette (“Toni”) M. Wolff formed a law partnership. The partners’ intent was to have Toni’s son and Ruby’s husband, Mark A. Wolff, join them in their general practice firm as soon as the firm was busy enough to need three attorneys. The firm grew very fast and Mark left his firm to join Wolff & Wolff as a partner in 1997. Through the years, our firm has narrowed its scope of practice to representing debtors in bankruptcy, debtors and creditors in bankruptcy lawsuits, and settlements.
Over 20 Years of Serving
Mark A. Wolff
State Bar of CA No. 175570, State Bar of MI No. P46688
Mark was first introduced to law as a Michigan State undergraduate intern for MI Supreme Court Justice Michael Cavanaugh in 1988. As an intern, he was able to attend bureau and commission hearings trials, and appellate court oral arguments. While attending Cooley Law School, he went on to clerk for the MI Attorney General’s Office, where he honed his writing skills by drafting memorandums and proposed legislation. While clerking, he also responded to citizens’ concerns.
In the early 1990s, Mark gained invaluable experience representing debtors in all aspects of Chapters 7 and 13, while working for the MI law firm, Boren & Firebaugh. His opportunity to represent creditors came after his move to CA, where he represented creditors such as Chrysler Financial in state court litigation and bankruptcy cases.
In 1997, Mark became a partner of Wolff & Wolff, the firm his mother and wife founded. He enjoys passionately representing individuals, businesses, and non-profits in all phases of Chapter 7, 11, 12, and 13 cases and in bankruptcy lawsuits (adversary proceedings).
Mark is admitted to the State Bars of CA and MI, the US District Court Eastern District of CA and the US District Court Eastern District of MI. He has served on the Bankruptcy Clerk’s Attorney Advisory Committee, for the Eastern District of CA, since 1996.
