My husband and I called Attorney Stone when we were having a lot of difficulty managing our budget, paying credit cards and keeping up with mortgage payments. I felt relief from the very first call. He is eazy to talk to and compassionate. Attorney Stone offered us hope and helped us to stay in our house after being unemployed for 10 months.
I highly recommend calling if you are stressed or concerned about finanicial issues. I'm so thankful.
Attorney Stone helped me get my $38,000 deposit back from a local home improvement company. I had been working with a salesman who was very helpful and I signed the contract for the replacement of doors, windows, siding and a new roof. The salesman left the company, and one of the owners came to the house and said that "a mistake" had been made, and that the quote I had been given was too low. He wanted to increase the price of the job after I had paid the deposit. Mr. Stone was able to get my deposit refunded to me without having to file in court.
Attorney Stone was very helpful in giving me bankruptcy advice. He answered all of my questions and made sure I understood everything during the entire process. He helped me schedule a life estate held by my father in my bankruptcy.
Philip Stone closed my bankruptcy file and held onto my $1600 attorney fees without filing my case. He claimed I didn't submit document on time. Further more he is not knowledgeable to tax related issues.
Atty. Stone handled my bankruptcy as I was going through divorce. As you can imagine, one's trust, care and self esteem can be quite low during such troubling times. Atty. Stone treated me with nothing but respect and made matters as easy, efficient and quick as possible. He took time to sit and review my situation, come up with a plan and put it into action with little fanfare.
With regard to rate I didn't "shop" lawyers. I felt Atty. Stone's rate to be very fair. Were it doubled I would still feel that services rendered were an excellent value.
I have dealt with a few of the stereotypical ego driven, pompous lawyers. I can attest that Atty. Stone is not one of them.
Atty. Stone receives my full and complete recommendation.
