Practice Areas

The Law Office of Justine Villanueva provides legal services in the following practice areas: Bankruptcy; Consumer Debt Relief; Family-based Immigration; Estate Planning, and Real Estate Sale and Purchase. Call (530) 341-3409 for an evaluation.


Bankruptcy is a legal process through which people or other entities who cannot repay debts to creditors may seek relief from some or all of their debts. All bankruptcy cases are handled in the federal court under rules outlined in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. I can help you with the following kinds of consumer bankruptcy filings:

  • Chapter 7
  • Chapter 13
  • Chapter “20” (i.e. a Chapter 13 after a Chapter 7)
  • Chapter 11


I provide other consumer debt services outside of the Bankruptcy Court. For example, I can help negotiate with creditors (collection agencies, credit card companies, Franchise Tax Board, Internal Revenue Services, banks and other home mortgage lenders; car loan lenders, among many others) and help you draw up a payment plan.


I provide family-based immigration services including help with family-based petitions, visa applications, citizenship applications and interviews, applications for “green card” (aka Adjustment of Status), applications to remove conditions of residency, and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) applications or renewals.


I provide estate planning according to your specific goals and wishes, including the management of your estate during your lifetime and planning for the bequest of your assets to your heirs. Estate planning can also include planning for incapacity as well as eliminating or reducing uncertainties over the administration of probate.   


I am also able to provide assistance with the purchase or sale of residential properties either as an attorney assisting with the legal forms or as a licensed Realtor and Broker.
