I would highly recommend Attorney Balser. Gail was great through the whole bankruptcy process. She clearly explained the whole process and made a difficult time easier.
Gail was also very accessible through the whole bankruptcy.
I could never thank Gail enough for all her help over the years with saving my home. My adjustable rate skyrocketed years ago and my home was in foreclosure. It took six years ( I think I was her longest modification) and was so stressful but gail never gave up and never let me down ever. Each time a letter would come that the modification couldn't be done for one reason or another Gail would get right back on it and start again. All the times I fell off on my payments and she needed to do more work she never charged me more. She always answered my calls and my emails and even met me near my house an hour away from her office to get paperwork!! She is amazing!! The day I got word that my modification went thru I promised myself and Gail that never ever would I get in that place again. She made it possible to keep my family home and I can never thank her enough!!!
I highly recommend Gail. She's well versed in bankruptcy law and is very honest with you in terms of the process and what to expect every step of the way!
Gail has been working with me for sometime now. She has gone above and beyond for us during our chapter 13, even doing things out of her responsibility to us. I have recommend family and friends which I feel is the biggest compliment I could give her.
This lady is not just a lawyer, she is a very loving, caring, patient person. She helped me change my life. she will go over the line of duty to make sure your case is handled well in a very professional matter. As long as you follow her advise you will get results. She was never too busy for me. I had direct access to her whenever I needed it. She is a great lawyer, but a greater human being.
Gail was wonderful and so very, very helpful in one of most difficult times in our lives. She went through every detail of what was need and when. She is a wonderful attorney, intelligent, caring, gracious and kind. I would highly recommend her and her articulate services to any and all who may need her.
I initially hired Attorney Balser six years ago to help me save my home. It has been a long fight but has never lost faith in me. Her kindness goes above and beyond the call of her job. She never charged me extra for any of my new crises along the way or answering countless other questions on other matters. On many occasions she reached out to me after hours to help resolve a new crisis that had developed in my life. I was always so ashamed and but Attorney Balser made me see I should be proud for my continued hard work and refusal to give up. So I am PROUD to say, with her knowledge and assistance every step of the way, I have saved my home and gotten back on track financially . I never could have done it without Attorney Balser. Thank you and God Bless You and your family.
I just finished a five year Chapter 13 Plan with this Attorney. Gail let me pay her monthly because I didn't have all the money to file in the beginning. Everything went fine in my bankruptcy for about two years. Then I fell behind in my mortgage payments. I was getting very nervous and finally gave her a call. I thought she was going to be mad and I felt like such a failure. But she told me not to worry and my situation was not uncommon. She said she would handle it and she did. She got me another six months to catch up on my mortgage. She didn't charge me anything additional even though she had to go to court for me extra times. I was able to keep up until the last year. I again contacted her and she put me at ease again. We met and talked about doing a loan modification because my income had permanently changed. I decided to hire her to do that too. Over the last year she was able to modify my mortgage and lower my payment by over $400 per month. It has made all the difference. I just received my bankruptcy discharge and can not thank her enough for all the extra time she spent with me. Attorney Balser has been a true blessing in my life and I highly recommend her.
I was so lucky to have found Attorney Balser. I had made so many bad financial decisions over the years. Attorney Balser took all my worries away. I can not thank her and her staff enough for all their kindness. They are an amazing team. I was able to stay in my house for over a year and a half and save my money while she handled the short sale of my house from start to finish. I had liens on the property in addition to my mortgage and she was still able to get the sale approved without it costing me a penny. She was very patient and explained every step and kept me in my house longer than I ever imagined was possible. She even made sure I had moving expenses when the house was sold. After my short sale was done she handled my bankruptcy to eliminate all my credit cards. I couldn't believe how quick and easy the hearing was. I am finely debt free and can get a new start in life. All of her legal fees were explained upfront very reasonable. She never tried to charge me anything extra. I will be indebted to her forever.
Attorney Balser has handled several matters for us over the past years. We ran into financial and health problems beginning over 6 years ago. She very expertly handled our bankruptcy to help relieve the immediate debt problems and lawsuits we had. Our hearing was only minutes long. It was clear that it went very smoothly because of all the preparation in advance. We saw other people at the hearing whose attorneys had not provided all the documents to the trustee and they were very lengthy. I was so glad we had chosen Attorney Balser. She let us pay her monthly because we couldn't pay for her services all at once. About a year after that was complete my husband had a medical problem which left him unable to work consistently. Our mortgage fell behind. We retainer her again to try and save our house. It took a couple years because my husbands income was so uncertain and changing. She never charged us more than she originally told us even though I know she had to do double the work because my husbands income kept fluctuating.. She was pro-active in dealing with all these issues before they could become problems. She was incredibly quick at returning emails or phone calls. She gave us her cell phone and told us we could reach her anytime day or night and weekends too. She did get us a modification and made the payment affordable. We stayed in our house for 3 more years but have now decided to move to Florida. She has now handled the short sale of our home. We were able to stay in the house for six months saving our mortgage payments to help with the move. The timing of the short sale closing was itself was perfect and conducted efficiently and professionally and, best of all not a single surprise! Oh yes there was one surprise and it was a great one. Our moving incentive went from $3000 to $10,000 because of a very recent change in the law that Attorney Balser knew about. She submitted a request that our approval be modified to include the higher payment and it was granted! We can really never thank you enough. But we do say thank you and God Bless.
