We posted a question on AVVO regarding a law suit, creditors/consumer rights, Elderly law and and received several responses one of which came from Ms. Van Wieren. We reached out to her and had a face to face consultation shortly thereafter.
Ms. Van Wieren had an extraordinarily firm grasp of a myriad of intricacies pertaining to the law, what they could, what they couldn't do and a multi-tiered approach towards resolving the issues at hand.
She stayed in constant communication throughout the process and worked diligently in a way that didn't make us feel like we were on the back burner but a valued client. It should be noted that this wasn't a super high dollar case but yet and still, we were treated in a manner reflective of a firm that treats ALL OF IT'S CASES the same. With fervor, attention to detail, a sense of purpose and urgency.
She also didn't try to nickle and dime us. It was one set fee which clearly stated the several things she was going to do for us along with a definitive timeline that she adhered to with maximum results.
In fact she went above and beyond what she agreed to do to ensure proper closure of our matter with the best results possible which for us was a very big deal.
Our family has had the need to hire three attorneys for a variety of "things happen in life" scenarios over the last 30 years or so. Ms. Van Wieren is at the top of the heap.
As a result, we highly recommend her accordingly.

After consulting with several other bankruptcy attorneys, I was referred to Angel by a friend. Once I met with Angel, I would consider no other legal counsel for my bankruptcy process. She covered the process with me thoroughly in our first meeting.
I was very afraid before I met with her and I felt like a failure for having to consider bankruptcy. I knew that my financial situation had some very unique aspects to it and felt overwhelmed with all of it. Angel helped to relieve my stress by demonstrating her knowledge of the laws and explaining them so well. She discussed the various options available to me. When I left her office I was clear about what I needed to do and I had a renewed positive outlook on my future.
She kept me informed along the way and was clear on all the deadlines. She responded quickly when I had questions or concerns. Every time I spoke with her, I was amazed by her competence and compassion which re-assured me. I felt confident I had chosen the right attorney.
I’m still amazed! My process is complete now and I highly recommend Angel's legal counsel.

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!
Posted by a Bankruptcy client,
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!
