In law school, near graduation, Steven Fox tried to figure out what area of law he would practice in. He considered environmental law but the lure of bankruptcy, and its unique ways of looking at the law and at life, hooked him. He sent out resumes to more than 200 bankruptcy judges around the country applying for a judicial clerkship, working for a year with a bankruptcy judge. One interview lasted close to 3 hours and that judge, the Honorable Richard Stair, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge (ret.) for the Eastern District of Tennessee, hired Steven Fox. One of his jobs was to present different options and ideas to the judge so that the judge would have a fuller picture before ruling on a case matter. Another job was to act as a sounding board and to disagree with the judge when appropriate. When Steven Fox returned to Los Angeles, he worked for a small chapter 11 law firm and soon left it to open up his own firm with a partner. Since 1994, Steven Fox has owned his own firm.
The Fox Law Corporation practices bankruptcy, in particular business reorganization and bankruptcy litigation, in the Los Angeles area and around the United States. Its practice philosophy in reorganizations is unique as Fox Law focuses on the real reorganization – the business – while most attorneys focus on the law. The law is important, but your business is more important. In litigation within the bankruptcy court, Fox Law will be as assertive as necessary but will also work to settle litigation.

An honest man who has the ability to cushion a major fall or deliver a massive punch with a kind and soft spoken demeanor. I got in trouble once. Steve Fox was my guy that got me out of it. If I should ever get in trouble again, I know no other guy to get me out of it. If you ever find yourself in the position to have to consider filing for chapter 11, without hesitation, I strongly recommend Steve Fox.
I had a phone consultation with Mr Fox a number of months back. I can definitely say if I did not have the budget limitation I do I would have hired him. It was a great consultation. He took the time to understand my case as a creditor and gave me excellent suggestions. He even tried to help to see if another bankruptcy attorney would take my case in my budget. I would suggest anyone looking for creditor representation or bankruptcy representation to contact Mr. Fox’s office.
Steven Fox was a joy to work with during one of the most challenging times of my life. He’s very professional, knowledgeable, and knows how to handle a case correctly. He even got me an injunction that stopped lawsuits for about 4 years, which was so needed at this time. He brings so many years of experience and communicates very well. I highly recommend him.
[M]y client [the bank] was delighted that this worked out and is so happy you and [the client] were able to turn the company around and get payments to the creditors as promised. I actually lost a bet; I have to buy my client a very large breakfast because I had bet against the numerous timely payments. Glad I was wrong on the bet and my client was right! I think the Judge was pretty impressed as well. And he isn’t easily impressed. Nice getting to know you.
