Filing bankruptcy is a very scary thing and when I went into attorney Fangio's office I felt very frightened and lost. She was extremely welcoming and explained the whole process to me in a way I could understand.
As the case progressed she and her office staff were extremely professionaly and really knew their stuff. I would highly recommended Attorney Fangio to anyone considering bankruptcy. She really is an expert in this area and I wouldn't go to anyone else!
This is something I never do, write reviews…for anything, and I never thought I would write a review or anything nice about a lawyer. You know the shyster jokes, etc… Mary Fangio is the exception to every rule and stereotype that you have ever heard in your life. After dealing with Mary, I think of her as a part of my family, and I feel like I owe her more than just her lawyer fee (nominal in my opinion).
I went to Mary to file Chapter 7. And although it is something that is necessary sometimes in life, it is a difficult decision to make and process to go through. I was referred by a friend who had the misfortune of going through the same experience as I, but was lucky enough to find Mary Fangio as well. I spoke with Mary first on the phone for a few minutes and unlike two other lawyers I had called prior, Mary was very personable and informative on the phone. I knew immediately after that phone call why he spoke so highly of Mary. I felt at ease with her for those few minutes, she described the process, what I would need when we met and explained sometimes bankruptcy is a necessity and sometimes it can be avoided. I received more information in those few minutes on the phone with Mary then I did researching it myself.
I met with Mary a week later, I had my needed materials and we decided Chapter 7 was best for me, but it was all my decision to make. Mary did not act like that car salesman type; I like to call them vultures. As a matter of fact, Mary wanted me to take some time and decide if I wanted to hire her or meet with other lawyers. I knew immediately that Mary Fangio was the lawyer I wanted. Mary was there every step of the way, very available whether by phone or by email. When Mary wasn’t there and I did leave a phone message, the person behind the phone was not just an operator taking messages, no matter who answered they were personable and intelligent, they knew the process and could answer most questions, but Mary always followed up.
Mary Fangio gives lawyers and the profession a GOOD name. If you ever filed bankruptcy you know, it’s somewhat embarrassing and extremely stressful. I am not one to be described as overly religious, but Mary was a God send. Mary knows how to treat people, she has information coming out of her ears, but doesn’t lose you in legal jargon, she breaks everything down so you are informed every step of the way. I would recommend Mary Fangio to anyone who thinks they may need her service, whether filing bankruptcy or any of her other specialties. Mary Fangio is a class act; I wish all professionals had her demeanor.
