The ability to file bankruptcies and defend foreclosure actions on behalf of his clients became a crucial aspect of his practice. His clients were hurting and felt helpless. Attorney Forbes quickly learned that he was successful in helping his clients regain control of their finances and renew their self-respect. This fueled his passion for consumer law. Not only was he impacting the lives of so many, he found a deep satisfaction in putting these bullies in their place.

The Law Office of Michael P. Forbes, PC Is a Family Affair

Mr. Forbes has teamed-up with his wife, Nancy Forbes, who is his right-hand person and practice director. She is usually the one who clients have their first contact with, just because she will most likely be the one to answer the phone.

Nancy shares her commitment to their clients as her husband does and wants them to feel like they have a "safe haven" and that they have entered the "no judgment zone" when working with their office. The Forbes's have been married for more than 25 years and live in Chester County with two of their younger children, as their older children have grown and left the nest. They also have a very large dog who might get mad if not mentioned, so there ya go!
