I am a person that, typically, can solve any problem. I thought this would be no different. After several failed attempts to resolve this debt, I was hopeless. I feared much of my hard work would be wasted. I spoke with several people, checked various consumer advocacy groups, and talked with some lawyers. Alison Emery was the person that seemed to be on everyone's list. It is abundantly clear why she was recommended. Even though I did not give her much time to work with, she expedited a resolution that exceeded expectations. Although extensive knowledge is paramount and validated, her personal interaction was comforting in this stressful time. She seems to genuinely care about helping people. If you are paralyzed by fear, and your situation seems irreparable, let Alison Emery ease your mind.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Alison Emery for over 2 years. Initially she provided her expert legal counsel in unchartered waters for me, and just recently was kind enough to just sit and talk with me and answer some questions and concerns I am dealing with. Her knowledge of her area of expertise is without question. These words come to mind when I think of Alison --- "professional," "knowledgeable," "compassionate," "Giving," and the list goes on. Anyone contemplating a major decision such as bankruptcy should first seek out Alison and take her advice since it only comes from one of the best in the Jacksonville and surrounding areas.

Alison Emery was extremely polite, precise and knowledgeable with all aspects of my problems. She took the time to listen to all the details of my case personally, and more importantly, took care of all things in an expedient manner.
I'd recommend her to anyone, as her professionalism is above par and it was truly a pleasure to have her as my lawyer.

We met 4 years ago when things looked gloomy. Ms. Emery gve me one price and in detail explained my options and she went to work for my family. We won the modification in a life changing result that I can only say was because Ms. Alison Embery fought so hard for my family. I will and am going to reccommend her to whoever I know that needs help. She is simply awesome.

Alison cleaned up and enhanced my financial situation. I was in a bad time in my life and she explained my bankruptcy options thoroughly and did not make me feel judged whatsoever. She was very accommodating to my schedule, flexible and down to earth, which meant a lot to me. The only negative is that after the 341 Meeting of the Creditors, but before discharge, there sometimes was a too much of a delay when I requested a status update on my case. I can honestly say that I will miss her correspondences, yet I hope I never have to use her bankruptcy services again. If I do, or if I ever meet someone who could use her services, I will definitely send them her way. At the end of the day, she thoroughly delivered to my satisfaction and I can finally move on with my life. Thank you, Alison.

Alison made us feel at ease from the get go. We had some extraordinary circumstances which she not only took the time to listen to, but also researched to find the best alternative for us. I always felt that she was sympathetic and had a genuine concern for our well being beyond the reason for our hiring her. To put it simply she really cares about her clients and it shows! I've dealt with quite a few attorneys in the past, both as a client and in a working environment and she is a real gem. If she can help you, she will!

There is no one else we would ever want as our attorney and would recommended her with our highest regards. Her intergrity and work ethics is priceless. God lead us to her and she guided us throughout our trials; there is no one else we would ever want to have as our attorney and we hold her in the highest esteem possible.She truly made an impossible experience pleasant for us. Her expertise,professionalism and intelligence was such an inspiration to us.We truly felt blessed having her as our attorney during this difficult time of our lives. We can not thank her enough for walking through this storm with us. She guided us and gave us directions and truly stands behind the motto, of " helping good people in bad times."

I highly recommend Alison Emery. Before I was referred to Alison I was overwhelmed with under employment as a result of the economy, debt and a garnishment that made it impossible to meet my financial obligations as a single Mom. Prior to meeting Alison I had worked with an attorney to try and have my wage garnishment stopped however it was denied. That same attorney actually recommended Alison and stated that she was the best at what she does. Upon my initial meeting with Alison the first impression I received was that she was very approachable, warm, genuinely concerned and empathetic about my situation. I was nervous at first about the process, mainly because in the meetings with my previous attorney, the representative for the company that was garnishing my check and the judge, I was left feeling guilty and with no hope. But it was much different with Alison, during our first meeting we talked and she educated me about the process, and put me at ease that she felt confident that I would have no issues with my bankruptcy case and that she was even going to work to get back my garnished wages! I left that first meeting with her, filled with hope and a sense of peace that I had not had in a long time, also once the process started Alison was able to have my garnishment stopped. I am very happy and pleased to say that in a relatively short period of time, my bankruptcy has been discharged, and I received a check from Alison right before Christmas for my wages that had been garnished for approximately 6 or 7 months! A tremendous load has been lifted off of my shoulders and I have a brand new start. I am looking forward patiently rebuilding my credit without the burden of debt and creditors. I am truly grateful for Alison and cannot say enough about her expertise and care that she provided me.
