Our Team

Principal Attorney: Brett F. Bodie, Esq.

Attorney Brett F. Bodie  passed the bar exam on his first attempt (a test that had a 30% pass rate at the time he took it) and spent the first three years of his career working for the largest bankruptcy firm in San Diego.  He quickly rose to head that firm’s consumer bankruptcy department and during his time there he handled over a thousand Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases.  To put that in perspective, most small bankruptcy firms handle 5-10 bankruptcy cases per month – so it would take them 8-10 years to see as many cases as he dealt with in three years.  He has handled virtually every type of Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy case an attorney can see.  He gained a reputation for excellent quality of work and developed close working relationships with all of the San Diego bankruptcy Trustees.

Brett is a native of the San Fernando Valley and went to school in Woodland Hills before moving to San Diego in 2005 to attend the University of San Diego School of Law.  He moved back to his hometown and provides excellent representation and significant experience to all his clients.

Of Counsel: Christian Spaulding, Esq.

Attorney Christian Spaulding has been practicing for seven years, most of which have been spent as a consumer bankruptcy attorney.  He attended Chapman University and holds a B.S. in Accounting.  He graduated at the top of his class and was awarded the Wall Street Journal Student Business Award.  Christian went on to attend Chapman University School of Law on a merit scholarship.  During his time at Chapman University School of Law, Christian was a member of the Chapman Law Review and graduated with an emphasis in tax law.  He passe the bar exam on his first attempt and began his career as a trial attorney for the County of Orange.  He currently works as a consumer bankruptcy attorney and is the principal attorney at Spaulding Law Group.
