  • Sandra B. Worthington

    I endorse this lawyer. I have referred numerous clients to Mr. Abel over the ten years I have known him. Often, these have been my valued clients who need his expertise in matters relating to debt collection. I have referred business creditors as well as persons being sued for collection of debts. Al has a profound understanding of both sides of the collection and bankruptcy laws. The clients I have referred to him have been extremely happy with his handling of their legal matters. He is easily approachable, diligent, and has the ability to explain the complexities of these issues in plain English so the client doesn't feel lost. I will continue to refer clients with these issues to Al Abel in the future and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

    I endorse this lawyer. Alfred Abel chaired the Montgomery County Bar Association Bankruptcy Committee and I was appointed to serve under him as vice chair. Alfred did an amazing job as the chair, rendering the respect of all the Committee members. Alfred also organized a CLE for the Bar Association that was very informative and well attended. Alfred Abel is an intelligent, honest lawyer that is well respected in the legal community. I give him my full endorsement, and would feel very comfortable recommending him to my friends and family.
