I would not hesitate to recommend Angel to anyone looking for competent, professional counsel. She was attentive to my issues and guided me through the process- taking the fear out of my hesitation to file. I am grateful to have had her as my counsel.

I was so stressed and so afraid of declaring bankruptcy and I had no clue how to start and what to do. In my opinion my case was so messy and complicated but Angel Wieren took all the fear and stress out of my life and made the process so simple that I can’t even begin to explain. She is caring, kind and so understanding of every situation, she was with me through every step and I never felt alone. I appreciate all her efforts and recommend her to anyone that faces this unfortunate process.

Great lawyer...down to earth and very sincere. I was terrified of what was facing me, but she explained everything. Would highly recommend.

Angel's compassion for your delicate situation is really what makes her a great lawyer. She was organized and attentive from the very beginning, all the way through and even post bankruptcy proceedings. My parents underwent a Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy and Chapter 7 business bankruptcy within a year. Angel was a Godsend during the most turbulent times in our family's life. There was never a questioned that went unanswered (and believe me there will be tons that will arise every minute of the day from the start to end and even post). She was always readily accessible and would respond as promptly as can be. You never had to go 'through anyone' to get to her. She would alter her schedule to meet with you if your work hours were long or crazy. She is strategic and works hard for the best outcome of your specific case. She gives you the realistic 'case scenarios' which could happen and guides you to make the best choice (if you need to) for your situation.---Rarely does life allow you to meet a professional whom actually cares for you and your well being. Angel is this type of person. And my family and I felt really fortunate to have met and worked with Angel. So if you're interviewing possible bankruptcy attorneys, I'm sure you won't look any further after your first meeting with Angel. We certainly didn't. (This, coming from a VERY selective person about everything in life).

Filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy was definitely a challenging time in my life but having Angel by my side through this process was such a sigh of relief. She not only walks you through the legal side of things but also helps you with the emotional side of bankruptcy. She is super organized from your first meeting to the hearing and even after your case is discharged. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking about filing for bankruptcy .

Making the decision to file Chapter 7 was not an easy one and because of my unique situation it was going to take an attorney who really "knew their stuff". From the first moment I met Angel, I knew I had found the right person for me. She was knowledgeable, calm and confident. Any concerns I had she put me at ease, explained the possible scenarios but, was very convinced that she could see me through. She gave me a timeline of events that was realistic and accurate.
I could call on her when I needed direction or had questions about what was needed. We are through the process now and I am living the words she would say when we would talk... "This is your fresh start"...It feels pretty awesome! Thank you Angel!

Making the decision to file was for me confusing and over whelming. It was a subject that I had very little understanding of. Angel made every step of the process clear and and painless. She has the perfect combination of professionalism and personal touch that allowed me to feel confident in all the decisions I had to make. She went above and beyond my expectation. Highly recommended!

Angel was referred to me from a friend that she had helped. I was nervous at first, but after my first meeting with her I knew everything was going to be ok. She is smart, funny, compassionate and knows what she is doing. Totally down to earth and made such a complicated task a breeze. She knows her stuff! I had a million questions and she never once got annoyed with any of them. From initial consult through the court process she was by my side and explained everything to me.

Ms. Van Wieren was patient, understanding and most efficient in explaining the process of choosing bankruptcy as a viable financial solution. She was very thorough in preparing the necessary documentation and exceeded my expectations. There were no hidden surprises. She helped me lay out a plan of action, made sure I fulfilled my requirements and made me feel comfortable that I had made the right decisions to move my life forward in a wholesome way.. I would highly recommend her services to anyone else in need of her as their attorney.

When the unfortunate time came for me to consider bankruptcy, I considered several attorneys. I saw where Angel had received several excellent reviews and called for an appointment.
I was scared to death. Worried about the impact on me, my family and my future and what the process itself would bring.
Angel immediately put me at ease as we met during the initial appointment. After the filing, she called (did not email like most attorneys do) to let me know it had been filed and to reassure me that the process would not be as bad as I thought.
Unfortunately, my case turned out to be more complicated that we initially thought. Nonetheless, her determination and perseverance in representing me resulted in my being discharged, although later than planned. I hate to think what would have happened if anyone other than Angel had represented me during that trying time. As she had done earlier, she stayed in touch with me keeping me abreast of new developments while also checking in with me about my worries.
In my opinion, there is not a finer lawyer than Angel. She understands the law, fights on behalf of her clients, but doesn’t treat those she represents as just another number on a file.

Ms. Van Wieren was referred to me by a lawyer who faced off against her during a bankruptcy filing! He said that she was determined to get the best deal for her client and that I could not do any better than her. And he was right. She has fought for me every step of the way. I would recommend her highly to anyone who is facing bankruptcy. She is compassionate, intelligent, and loyal.

Angel Van Wieren was recommended to me by a friend whom I have known over ten years. After listening to my tale of woe, it was when I met this young attorney that I began to feel relieved from my most begrudgng financial situaion. I was in the midst of credit card debt, credit union issues, federal and local government tax claims, and possibly reposession of my home and car. Upon her advisement, I saw clearly that the best way to eliminate the drama that had taken over in my life was through bankruptcy. In her quiet yet definitive tone, she detailed the elements of my particular situation as I had given them to her. After being informed of the various Chapters in bankruptcy, I decided upon which I would file and she performed all the legalities necessary. I felt confident and at ease as we followed the process of meetings with me and her, and with trustees, filing petitions and going for court dates. Angel is what her name indicates. She was there when I became anxious; when tears rolled down my cheeks - first because of my fears and then because of the overwhelming joy when we'd meet with success. I don't look at her only as an attorney, but also as a friend who walked with me every step of the way and held my hand through a difficult time in my life. I will be forever grateful.

Angel kept me informed every step of the way, very professional yet very personable and caring. Always returned my phone calls and replyed to e-mails in a timely manner. Angel welcomed my questions. She is always pleasant when on the phone with her or in her office. She is an excellent attorney and has an excellent knowledge of the law.

Filing bankruptcy is not something that is usually planned and hiring an attorney was something that we had never done before so finding someone we could trust and feel comfortable with was our first priority. I researched attorneys for 3 months. After reading reviews on the Van Wieren Law Firm and Angel in particular, I knew I had found "the one". After meeting with Angel, she made an unpleasant circumstance bearable. She never once made us feel like failures or questioned our character. She answers questions quickly making sure we understand. Angel is very passionate about her job and is very knowledgeable with the ever changing laws. She is personable, easy to talk to and truly cares about her clients. There needs to be a place for 5 more stars....she deserves them!

I was at a loss looking for a attorney for financial hardships. Not sure where to look. I stumbled upon Angel Van Wieren's website and I am so glad I did. She is outstanding. From the moment we had our free consultation in her office to the end of the process she was prompt, courteous, non judgemental, professional, I could go on and on. Always kept us informed on our case and she worked diligently to help us file the best way possible. Just a outstanding attorney!

Angel was literally my angel from heaven. In 2009, I went through a horrible divorce; and, in 2010, I was diagnoised with an incurable muscle disease that not only left my body weak but also forced me into an unplanned premature retirement. I was physically weak, emotionally drained, and financially tapped out. The straw that broke it all was when my private student loan lenders refused to modify my loan payments to something more affordable. I was at the end of my rope when I called Angel.
I actually found Angel through a chance network meeting with one of her former clients. He assured me that my case wasn't so unusual and to "just give her a call if nothing else". I did and this was THE BEST decision I made in 2012.
Angel worked with me on everything from understanding how to navigate through the paperwork gathering process because I had LOTS of accounts (some I had even forgotten about) to advocating for me to have my student loan debt forgiven for hardship (something that is very hard to get).
In professional circles, Angel's name and contact information is passed around like the best kept secret--she is just that good. Bankruptcy is hard; but, getting the best representation possible doesn't have to be when you use Angel.

The thought of going through bankruptcy was daunting & overwhelming. We felt lost. While searching the internet, we came across these amazingly positive reviews for Angel Van Wieren.
We wondered: is she for real? Well, she lived up to every one of those reviews and more.
She is very professional and completely thorough. Her incredible knowledge of BK may very well make a difference in the outcome (as it did in our case).
Sheâ€™s great at translating this complicated BK process into plain language & answered the difficult questions to our satisfaction. We also appreciated her being very accessible by responding quickly.
On top of all that, sheâ€™s honest, understanding (non-judgmental) and she really cares!
From the 1st meeting to the completion, we knew we were in good hands. We are very thankful that Angel was our BK attorney. We wish her the very best.

Angel made my bankruptcy experience very pleasant. She was there to help me and kept me informed every step of the process. I would definitely use her and recommend her.

Hiring Angel Van Wieren was one of the best decisions that I’ve made in a really long time. Being unemployed and in a significant amount of debt, I knew that it was time to seek some type of resolution. Angel is very knowledgeable in her craft, she was extremely thorough in making sure all of my questions were answered and providing me with the best options and solutions for my situation. She was very honest & reassuring I felt like there was never a time where I could not ask her a question. Correspondence was always excellent and effective; every email and phone call was always returned punctually. Aside from her highly noted professionalism she was also very personable and relatable; she made me feel confident in completing my journey towards a new start in my financial future. The entire experience was definitely the light at the end of the tunnel for me. I’d definitely recommend giving her a call, I’m so thankful that I did!

Angel is the most caring and responsive BK attorney that you will find...period!!! I visited with all of the big name Atlanta BK firms, and some of the small ones, but none of them can stand toe-to-toe with Attorney Van Wieren. She had my back from my initial consultation. I had unique circumstances which involved business and personal, and it was very daunting. But, with Ms. Van Wieren's professional guidance, my case was resolved to my satisfaction.
If you want the best representation, personal attention to your specific needs, and and attroney that will go-to-bat for you...call Attorney, Angel Van Wierne, TODAY!!!

When I first came to Ms. Van Wieren, my wages were being garnished and I was in absolute tears. As a college student, I had very little direction and felt hopeless and financially disabled.
Angel was clear and calm from day one. Incredibly professional,and knowledgeable... she guided me throughout the whole process and made me feel at ease. She was very understanding, and extremely organized and thorough. She answered every single question I had, and returned all emails and phone calls promptly. She made me feel like life was NOT OVER, and helped me see how sometimes a fresh start is the best thing. This lawyer is a real and down to earth woman, who would not take advantage of anyone and give you the best advice about your case. I would recommend her to anyone. Give her a call.

Angel Van Wieren is a highly intelligent, professional and ethical attorney. She represented my husband and I in our Bankruptcy filing. We found her to be a caring and compassionate lawyer who listens and carefully explains all the ramifications of filing for Bankruptcy. Ms Van Wieren responds quickly to all enquiries and makes sure that the client is aware of all the ups and downs associated with a legal issue. She keeps you constantly in the loop and uses her intellect and compassion to help keep her clients calm and focused during a completely stressful time. Angel treats you with respect and compassion and gives you her time unstintingly. She uses her vast knowledge and all the resources available to her to present your case in a complete and honest manner. You meet with her from day one and she stays with you, represents you and has your welfare uppermost in her mind until the conclusion of your case. We recommend her most highly for her honesty, professionalism and her compassionate nature.

When we first met Angle we were mostly concern about a collection letter for a second mortgage for a foreclosed property, at that meeting the asked for additional information for a review of our whole financial situation. Driving back we were discussing that we were extremely please as she was smart, thorough and extremely professional. We felt confident that I had chosen the right Attorney
From the time she took our case Angel was pleasant to work with as she was very responsive to ours inquiries and concerts. The experience was wonderful and we didn’t feel alone for a moment during this difficult process. She did listen and did work on our behalf; she performed above and beyond our expectations. When you're going through a tough time, you need the right representation; you get that and then some more with Angel M. Van Wieren.

Within the first minute of meeting Angel I felt relieved that I had chosen the right Attorney. Her caring demeanor, her knowledge of the law and her ability to listen and guide me, without judgement, through a very difficult process was most appreciated. I have and will continue to recommend her. She's a lifesaver.

After speaking with (and visiting) several other attorneys we found Angel. She was a great relief for us as she took control of our matter and put our minds at ease. She was very pleasant to work with and was responsive when we had inquiries. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

When I think of Angel, I think "Absolutely Amazing" and I mean it. Those two words are just the beginning. My experience with her was first rate. She truly is a class act!
She's smart, savvy , sooooooooooo professional and gracious. She's easy to talk to, understands what you're going through and she listens!!!! That's the most important part.
I'm thrilled that she handled my case. Angel thinks of everything. As I mentioned, she listens, takes notes, asks lots of questions and then the strategy begins. Trust me, she'll figure it out and you'll be all the better for it. You'll know immediately that you have the best person representing you and you deserve the best.
This can be a very scary time, but not with her. Angel has an awesome ability to make you take a deep breath, laugh a little and relax. She can do this because she knows her stuff period! Ms. Jacobs (Van Wieren) makes it all look so easy and effortless. She's prepared for anything and nothing will get by her.
So, no more sleepless nights, no more agonizing over what to do. Just call her. You'll be so glad you did. :-)
