4.5 stars 27 totalReview Jillian Aylward
I was a struggling home owner for 22 years seeking advise as to keep my house or not since Bank of America did not provide an affordable modification and sent me through unnecessary hoops. After coming to my wits end, I perused the internet and found Ms, Aylward's website. After I made an appointment to see her and after carefully listening to her candid advise, I hired her to represent me. She was definitely the glue that held me together as we went through the entire bankruptcy process. Without her strength, knowledge and mental support, I would not have been able to make it. If you want someone to represent you, be honest and candid, then I highly recommend Ms. Aylward.
Jillian worked with me and my creditors to arrive at a settlement at a significant reduction in the amount due. The debts were settled at between 35% and 60% of the original balance due. This method enabled me to avoid bankruptcy and possibly lose my home. I am so appreciative of her help and she was a pleasure to work with.
She was excellent. and help me with all my problems and made my life easier. She made you feel relax and lifted all your problems . I would truly recommend Ms. Aylward to anyone.
Jillian and her staff are truly miracle workers. I went through a nasty separation with my husband and bills had fallen behind. We were close to losing our home through foreclosure. My husband was working with another loan counselor who did nothing but take his money. When he was faced with the foreclosure action he informed me and I jumped right in and found Jillian. She eased a lot of our fears, as we were dealing with a difficult lender. They would not allow us to short sale and told us they would come after us for the deficiency balance. They would not modify the loan either, it was a true nightmare. Jillian calmed me down and assured me things would work out. She offered realistic options and her calming spirit and smile made me feel like things would indeed work out. I am happy to say due to her and her staff's diligence she was able to stop the foreclosure action and get us a very nice modification. My husband and I are now working through our issues and have one less stress to worry about. I don't know where I would be today without Jillian. She truly has her client's best interest in mind. Her prices are reasonable and her and her staff are very customer focused. I call Jillian my angel because she truly protected me. I was not sleeping well, worried sick about my situation. After my first meeting with her all the worry melted away. I'm beyond thankful and I recommend her to any one going through a hardship. She will do all she can in her power to help you. I also liked the fact that she had realistic options, never promising anything but laying out the facts. It's an added plus that she not only handles home modifications but bankruptcies. You can't go wrong with Jillian!
Attorney Aylward was phenomenal from the very beginning. She was very thorough and was straight forward. She let me know what to expect and let me know her expectations for me. She was very patient because of my unique situation. Her staff was always very helpful when Jillian was not available due to court or dealing with other legal matters. I enjoyed working with her despite the reason I had to hire her. Thank you Jillian for being so GREAT!
Jillian handled my affair professionally and swiftly. I absolutely love working with her. She is extremely knowledgeable and works with your best interest in mind. Thank you Jillian for all of your help with everything.
We retained Ms. Aylward after attempting to deal directly with our loan servicing company but to no avail. Ms. Aylward didn't promise us the world. She was thorough in revieiwng our circumstances and candid in explaining what she thought the probability of success would be for our matter. She has a small but tenacious and effective staff that understands how best to work with the banks and loan servicers. The staff worked diligently and around the clock to bring our loan servicer to the negotiation table; kept us fully and completely apprised of each step in our negotiations process; and answered our questions (regardless of how minor they may have seemed) in a very timely fashion. The firm stayed in regular and consistent contact with us to keep us informed about the status of our case. We felt that they were respectful of us as clients and our particular circumstances without being judgmental and dismissive. Our matter was resolved in our favor, thanks in large part, to the fact that the Aylward firm has significant knowledge of the various loan servicers and has developed relationships with some of these companies/entities which they use to aid in the negotiation process. Their work literally saved us from having to deal with the loan servicing company in a face-to-face meeting. Instead, we were able to reach an amicable agreement without the pressure and awkwardness involved with a face-to-face meeting regarding a very delicate issue. The Aylward firm was also timely in terms of how quickly they moved ahead with each step in our negotiation process-in fact, there were times when we were the delay and the firm really helped to keep us on task. Even once our matter had been resolved, the firm remained available for follow-up questions and for follow-up with counsel for the other side when a request for a dismissal of a certain earlier action. Overall, we were quite pleased and very happy with the outcome of our case--thanks in large part to the effectiveness of the Aylward firm.
At time it seemed difficult to make contact with or get a reply back from you, but ultimately we were overall pleased with the service she provided us. We would recommend her.
I hired Jillian Aylward after consulting with several other lawyers in the Rockville, MD area. Right away she seemed much more personal and engaged than anyone I spoke with. Jillian made a very daunting process easy and accessible, and I very highly recommend her without reservation. After an initial consultation by Skype, we had a meeting in her office in person to complete all the paperwork. She never rushed, spent as much time as it took to answer all questions, and answered subsequent emails and concerns very quickly and completely. I can only say positive things about her, and about how easily and calmly she helped resolve this inherently stressful process for me.
I called Ms. Aylward and she made me feel at ease from the moment she spoke to me. Ms. Aylward was very assuring and helpful, and so is her partner Mr. Lastarria who also helped me tremendously. He helped me though the mediation and modification process. What could've been a foreclosure on my home turned out to be a modification reduction loan. My payment was reduced to an amount I can afford. They took over $1,000.00 off my monthly payment. To God be the GLORY!!! I am so grateful for Ms. Jillian Aylward and Mr. Eric Lastarria. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you've done!!:)
