Melissa, Damon and Jordan were all great. My husband and I were in a place that we did not like, mostly due to divorce and loss of employment. Damon and Melissa informed us of our options, kept in touch with us and were very comforting. After we chose to file, Jordan was very efficient in reviewing the paperwork and making sure we had what we needed. During the creditors meeting, Damon was the ONLY lawyer that pulled his clients BEFORE the trustees and it really helped to ease the embarassment of having your name called twice. We felt very prepared and they made it easy. We would recommend them to all!

My experience with Duncan Law has been amazing. I will be forever grateful to Damon and Melissa Duncan for their exceptional kindness and for making me always feel comfortable from my first visit to their office throughout my entire process. Their instructions were thorough, easy to follow and they always replied promptly to any questions I had. They went way beyond my expectations. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs their professional service. Thank you Damon and Melissa.

For two years my wife and I basically lived to work, and worked to pay our bills (on time). Our entire monthly earnings were literally distributed among or creditors all the way down to our last $80...So my family of 5 "lived" off of $80 a month. Neither of us knew of a better way than to just pay as agreed (the monthly minimums Iâ€™ll add) until the balances finally disappeared. Thatâ€™s what everybody else does, so we figured ourselves to be no different. The problem with that plan was with occasionally having to use a credit card for gas or food the balances never would decrease. Some would even grant more credit, thus compounding our problem and creating the illusion that things were okay, and in the short-term they were. Even the Consumer Credit Counseling Agency encouraged us to â€œkeep current..â€ adding there was â€œnothing (they) could do at this point..â€ To our credit, Iâ€™ll say that we prided ourselves on paying all of our bills on time and we did so, with exception to an old auto loan my wife once had. However, with just $80 to spare monthly there was no room for something as small as a flat tire. In the past, weâ€™d talked amongst each other about bankruptcy but never gave it a serious look because of the fear that our names would appear on some listing or billboard and weâ€™d lose all we have. So when a friendly sheriff appeared at our door with a civil summons in July 2011 for a car that was repossessed in November of 2010 we knew we had to do something more extreme. We simply could not afford to by sued! At that point we just needed a lawyer to get an idea for the route we should take. We had this repossession coming back to bite us and a lot of credit at its limit. Looking for solutions we Googled â€œN.C. Lawyersâ€ and for whatever reasons was drawn by the Duncan Law video tutorials we eventually found ourselves watching. Within an hour we was sitting in Damonâ€™s office discussing options to remedy our financial strain and the threat of being sued. That entire event with all of its drama, suspense, and feelings of hopelessness took place merely 2 months ago. Following our initial consultation with Duncan Law my wife and I spent roughly three weeks gathering all the required information for them to do their jobâ€¦and shortly after submitting that information our outlook on bankruptcy changed considerably. The entire team at Duncan Law is well versed on seemingly every aspect of filing for bankruptcy. We were ALWAYS able to get quick responses to any questions or concerns we had along the way. Today (9/26/11), we had our dreaded Creditorâ€™s Meeting, and it went as smooth and quickly as Damon said it would. I canâ€™t believe I spent so much time pacing and worrying about how it would turn out.
In our scenario, two months after being COMPLETELY taken off guard by being served a Civil Summons Damon Duncan and his team of Melissa, and Jordan worked extremely hard for us and produced some serious results. All the anxiety we had over the last few years melted away instantaneously this morning after Damon flashed his infectious smile and said, â€œYou can go home. Iâ€™ll take it from hereâ€¦itâ€™s all over..!â€ We are real people that had a real dilemma and the Duncan Law team really came through for us! Iâ€™d recommend this group to anyone facing a financial hardship. Donâ€™t waste two years living â€œhand to mouthâ€ like we didâ€”Call them, (336.856.1234).

Damon and Melissa were fantastic both personally and professionally. They are very experienced and prepared to assist in the bankruptcy process. We were provided with (both printed and internet access) to information such as; what to expect throughout the process, worksheets to complete to enable the successful solution of our dilemma, and very sincere access to them for answers to our concerns and questions. The telephone was answered immediately during the business day (I did not try other hours) and email was returned the same day and generally within the hour.
Personally, they made my wife and I very comfortable in what was a very embarrassing situation to us.
The proof of the quality and competence of their talents was during the meeting of creditors; other lawyerâ€™s clients had their case postponed for lack of information; had to provide clarity of information; and some had the proposed solution modified. Damon was representing us and another couple at the meeting and both solutions were accepted as submitted without even a single question.
Thank you again Duncan Law.
