I want to thank you and your staff for the exceptional handling of our case. Your assistant's were especially helpful fielding questions and went above and beyond to clarify everything required. This made completing the paperwork less stressful and helped for a quicker turnaround of our case. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for an experienced bankruptcy attorney. You have proven that this doesn't need to be a stressful experience.
I received the letter a couple of weeks ago informing me of the discharge.
Thank you for all your help! It has made a real difference to the holiday season this year without having to worry about all the other debts that we had and certainly takes away a lot of the stress.
On February 10, 2011, I lost my job. Because of my work history, I never anticipated that it would take almost one year to find another position. Due to some health issues with my daughter, our savings was precarious at best, so this was a blow. Due to the job loss, I began to have financial difficulty with numerous lawsuits and a house in foreclosure. I came to Alfred Abel for help and I was able to get everything back on track. The lawsuits were dropped and I was able to do payment arrangements and my mortgage was modified once I gained employment. We are still working through it, but it is such a relief not to have to worry whether or not we will have our house at the end of the day. I am eternally grateful. Thank you again.
My business partner somehow was able to withdraw money from a joint account with my name on it. We had some business expenses we were planning on paying with this money. He skipped town and because I was registered as part owner of the business, I was responsible for paying this debt. Things were out of control and before I knew it, the Sheriff came out to my house and starting putting price tags on everything. I couldn't take it anymore and decided to research bankruptcy. In my search, I came across Attorney Abel and scheduled an appointment right away. He was able to have everything taken care of and stop the Sheriff sale from happening. If anyone is ever in my situation, I would recommend they schedule a consultation with Mr. Abel immediately.
Due to the fact that I lost my job and was disabled, my wife and I faced a severe problem, keeping up with monthly expenses, especially unsecured debt. With that in mind and with the help of the internet, I located Alfred Abel Law Offices as someone to look at in regards to potential bankruptcy options.
In February of 2013 we met with Mr. Abel and decided to secure his services with our bankruptcy case. After listening to my wife and me and taking notes, Mr. Abel recommended we proceed with Chapter 7. He provided a ‘no nonsense’ approach to what we needed and what was ahead of us. Both my wife and I left the meeting feeling like a major weight had been lifted from our shoulders, and Mr. Abel was that reason.
Throughout the bankruptcy process, communicating with Mr. Abel and his office was outstanding. Everyone was extremely professional, courteous and helpful.
Going through bankruptcy is a major life changing and emotional process, so choosing the correct law office to handle your case becomes the difference between success and failure. Both my wife and I highly recommend that if you’re facing bankruptcy or need top-notch financial planning advice, choose Alfred Abel as your representation.
My bankruptcy was finalized in January of 2013. Mr. Alfred Abel represented me through the entire procedure. My experience with him was flawless from beginning to end. Mr. Abel was always responsive in a timely manner whenever I needed his assistance. I would recommend Mr. Abel and have done so to my friends acquaintances for assistance in legal matters. He is a fine and likable man.
"When I met personally with Alfred A Abel in discussing my potential bankruptcy, I felt secure in the knowledge that I was going to get the best service that I could have hoped for. I had special circumstatnces in that I was going to be out of the country for most of the process due to family reasons. I communicated with Mr Abel and his staff via email wonderfully. Even though we had a time difference in our correspondence there were never questions that had gone unanswered. When preparing for my hearing, Mr Abel was extrememly informative and honest. I was prepared and felt compfortable with the process. Now that the whole process is over, I feel confident that it was the right decision and now I can get my life back. I would recommend Mr Abel to anyone going through the same financial anguish that I had gone through."
To the staff at Alfred Abel's office:
I want to take the opportunity to thank all the staff at Alfred Abel's Office you for all they did putting our case together. Especially when it got complicated; I panicked but they took control when I could not reach Alfred and I remain grateful for their poise and professionalism at a critical time.
It happened one day; I just realized I was in over my head. Between being laid off for 18 months and then finally finding a position in retail taking a 2/3 cut in pay, I knew I was in deep. I had always struggled with credit card debt but always paid the bills and had a high credit score. And, I felt that bankruptcy had this negative connotation around it.
I met with Alfred and discussed my situation. I learned in that initial consultation that I did have the option of filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I also learned what this meant. And, I could keep my house and car. I didn’t need to give up anything, except for my pride.
Once I swallowed my pride and took the plunge into the process, it felt liberating. I now pay cash for everything.
Working with Alfred and his staff was easy. They kept me informed of the steps and the progress in a timely and professional manner. My bankruptcy process has completed and I know now I should have done this much sooner in life.
If you are contemplating bankruptcy, don’t hesitate to call and schedule your initial consultation. The price you pay for that time and information is worth more than your time worrying and guessing.
A friend who I confide in suggested I meet with Alfred regarding a judgment which had me extremely worried. I met with Alfred and he helped me realize I had many choices and with some questions and discussion we came up with my solution which helped me to sleep at night and realize I'm not alone with financial struggles.
Alfred and his team were always available to answer my questions and handled my case so well that I will recommend Alfred to everyone! Alfred and his team helped me to get back on my feet and a new start without worrying about opening the mail anymore!
If you are having financial trouble, please do yourself a favor and contact Alfred Abel. He can guide you in the right direction no matter what your case may be.
