Elliot H. Feit

     I was born into a working class family in Brooklyn, New York in 1951, where I grew up fast in a housing project. I graduated from PS 251 (we had numbers, not names), and then graduated from Samuel J.Tilden High School in 1969 (the summer I went to Woodstock). I graduated from the City University of New York at Hunter College in June, 1973 with a  Bachelor of Arts degree. I attended Gonzaga University School of law from  1973 to 1976 when I received my J.D. (Doctor of Jurisprudence) Degree. Later that year I took the Ohio Bar Exam, passed and was sworn in as an attorney by the Ohio Supreme Court, licensed to practice law.

     Shortly thereafter I was admitted to practice in the United States Federal Court, the United States Bankruptcy Court, and the Sixth Circuit Federal Court of Appeals. At Gonzaga, I met Gordon Barry from Toledo, Ohio, became good friends and then partners in Barry and Feit in December, 1976. Why Toledo? That’s a long story you’ll probably get to hear when we meet. I started my career as a general practitioner with an emphasis on personal injury, domestic relations and representing people in many different civil actions and personal issues. In 1982 I began my journey on the path of representing people with financial problems and entered into the world of Bankruptcy law. Every year I became more and more involved in bankruptcy, as did my partner. By the mid 1990′s, Bankruptcy law became 95% of my practice, as it is today, along with related areas of practice such as protecting the rights of consumer debtors.

     I provide people and small businesses with debt counseling, which often leads to filing for debt relief in the United States Bankruptcy Court. Whether to file should always be the client’s decision. My responsibility is to help you understand the law and what your options are, with the goal of preparing you to make the decision that is best for you. Not every case ends up in a bankruptcy as there  may be other options. One size does not fit all. I am always here to work with you, counsel you and give you my honest opinion.

     Grateful for my life and the joy of the gift of family with two healthy and loving children, I decided to give back to the community in every way I can. Throughout my career I have been a proud provider in the Toledo Bar Association’s Pro Bono Program, providing free legal services to qualified members of our community. For years I have been and continue to be a speaker at bankruptcy seminars sponsored by the National Business Institute and mostly The Toledo Bar Association. I am always ready and willing to counsel young attorneys beginning their adventure into the field of bankruptcy law, to enable them to provide the best legal representation possible.

     In 1994 I volunteered for a seat on the board of Jewish Family Service of greater Toledo, moved up in the ranks where I served three years as President and three years as Immediate Past President. I served as President of Jewish Senior Service of Greater Toledo for three years and I now proudly serve as the Immediate Past of Jewish Senior Service of Greater Toledo, President of the Jewish Senior Service Supporting Organization and President of Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo.
