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.

I had a car accident. It was not my fault, but the insurance company wouldn't agree that their driver caused it. Mr. Abel settled the case in about 6 months and I heard from other people I know that's pretty fast. He got us all the insurance that the other driver had and got my lost wages and car damage too.

We loaned money to a business several years ago and then the business and the owner filed for bankruptcy. Our collateral was personal property, and we were sure the business got rid of it and we would be unsecured, and lose the full amount of our loan. We hired this lawyer and he was great. The bankruptcy trustee tried to disallow our security interest, and we proved that the debtor still had it and we were fully secured. Not only did we get paid in full but we got interest too, even the interest that accumulated during the bankruptcy case. It is the best result we ever got on one of our loans that went into default and then bankruptcy. He gets my highest recommendation.

Mr. Able graciously responded to a legal question that I had posted on Avvo. He took the time to carefully read the details I had provided and offered a very specific and insightful strategy on how to defend myself in civil court. Because of his help I was able to obtain judgment in my favor. I am very grateful for his time and input through the Avvo website.

1st of all, Mr. Abel is very pleasant and her was very upfront about everything!!! I simply had to get the ball rolling with today's laywer's rates (I highly recommend you pay the fees in full so you can really get the ball rolling fast as I did!!!). Everything Mr. Abel said was true and NO PROBLEMS at all!!! No extra fees or anything!!! My case was an open and shut case since my debt to income ratio was like 80% to 20% in comparison. But too bad school loans are almost impossible to have dischrged :-( !!! But He saved me around $80,000 total :-) !!! Despite having a mark on my credit, Mr. Abel has followed up nicely to help me get on my feet to rebuild my credit. In addition, his staff were also very friendly, easy going, caring and helpful. Mr. Abel also followed up after the case was closed and I ***HIGHLY*** recommend that you hire him!!!

Alfred and I worked on a bankruptcy case together. It was a really stressful time in my life, but even at our first consult, I knew I was in good hands. He knew exactly what he was doing. He gave me clear steps to follow and assured me this situation could get taken care of. Looking back, I'm utterly impressed at how smooth Mr. Abel made the whole process. Hard times can leave people desperate for a crutch, and I'm so glad I used Alfred M. Abel as my attorney. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Alfred was easy to deal with and explained things as situations arose. Offered advice that worked well with our needs. Alfred handled our case entirely, including filing all paperwork and dealt with US Bankruptcy Court officers and creditors.

I have known Attorney Abel forseveral years. He is an excellent attorney in the areas of bankruptcy and personal injury. Additionally, he handles Wills, Powers of Attorney and Health Care Powers of Attorney. Attorney Abel is knowledgeable and dedicated. I highly recommend him as an attorney.
