Having committed many financial mistakes in my youth, I was looking for a way to obtain a fresh start. Bankruptcy seamed like a solution but I had no idea if it was the correct solution for me. I Googled Bankruptcy lawyers and Virginia Fortunato seamed popular. I decided to schedule a consultation with her and a few more to get a feel of what I was potentially getting into. Out of them all Virginia was the only one that made me feel comfortable and properly informed me of what to actually expect. She specializes in bankruptcy so that was a huge plus. I met with other lawyers that do it along with other practices but they didn't appear as knowledgeable as Virginia. I decided to hire her and did not regret it. I filed for chapter 7 and she guided me through the whole process. I asked her a lot of questions, but she never hesitated to answer them thoroughly. I would highly recommend her. Give her a try and you won't be disappointed.
It is with such great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Virginia E. Fortunato, affectionately known as Ginny.
When I first embarked on the search for someone to help me resolve my financial distress, I knew the undertaking would be complex and quite daunting. I also knew there would be many obstacles to overcome.
I truly believe that, without Ginny's fortitude and impressive knowledge of her field, I would not have achieved the smooth outcome that ensued.
Ginny is the consummate professional. I am so appreciative of her innate abilities of listening, tireless problem-solving, and ever-positive attitude. She understood my individual predicament, clearly explained all issues and kept me involved as each step moved forward. I was always treated like I was her only client.
Over the many years she has been doing this, Ginny has developed wonderful contacts and working relations with other professionals in connected fields. She avails her cases with their expertise and knowledge to provide the optimal results for her clients.
Ginny is an outstanding bankruptcy attorney who rises head and shoulders above the rest in her profession.
I am grateful to her and amazed at the positive impact she achieves on a daily basis.
Ginny truly is a blessing and you'd be most fortunate to have her as your champion!
My particular case had its share of craziness. Anyone else would have thrown in the towel long ago.

Ginny has helped me turn my life around. She was very professional, courteous, and always returned my calls or messages promptly so I was never left in the dark about anything. Ginny pays attention to every detail and was very informative through the entire process. I would absolutely refer Ginny to friends and family.
Ginny is a great attorney first she REALLY CARES. That's the most important thing. She is equally skillful third she TELLS THE TRUTH if I was not a client , she would be the kind a person I would like for a friend. I am still getting thru this mess I created , but we are going the total fifteen rounds there is not a better bankruptcy lawyer out there. She is simply the greatest. Michael Ares
Virginia was extremely helpful, patient and very knowledgable!
She makes you comfortable, not rushed, and very secure in the advise and/or information she gives out!
I never thought I would end up in a position where I would have to file bankruptcy. After a couple of hard years and reduction of wages I realized I couldn't fix it on my own. I read reviews after googling searching "bankruptcy lawyers" and I felt that Ginny was the perfect fit for me. From the first time I spoke to her on the phone to schedule my consultation I knew I had made the right decision. She is honest and fair. She doesn't judge you or make you feel like a bad person. She is realistic about life and how things can go bad or not be perfect. Ginny always made me feel comfortable and from beginning to end I was soo soo soooooo happy I chose Ginny to represent me and file my petition. I had my meeting of creditors today and even though I was extremely nervous she made me feel at ease! I would definitely recommend Ginny to ANYONE considering bankruptcy. I would also suggest meeting with her even if you're not sure you qualify. She will lead you in the right direction!!! Ginny you rock!! Thanks so much for being you!!
From my first phone call with Ginny I knew she was the attorney for me. She understood my circumstances and made me feel at ease and said she would take care of me. Then when I had my consultation meeting and met her in person I retained her that day for my case. She is very knowledgable , compassionate and very passionate about helping you. She told me not to worry and to relax she would make the process easy for me. She is true to her word. Filed the end of April and was discharged in August. Hire Ginny you won't be disappointed!

Ginny from the very beginning was honest in providing very detailed information that clearly demonstrated that she is extremely up to date with her practice. She was very strategic in not wanting to make a bad situation worse for us by spending needless money in places that were not warranted. She has continued to be a resource for us during a long and stressful ordeal and has found many loopholes that have been in our favor. You will not be disappointed with Ginny, we selected her based on her excellent reviews, and encourage the reader of this review to do the same. Trust the reviews, trust Ginny to help you to have a strategic plan.
