    • I recommend Stephen Orchard.

    Mr Stephen Orchard was great in handling my case. He would help me with any anxieties I would have and make me feel like all is good, and it was. He was right there with me at every step of the way making sure I understood everything. If you were to ask me to recommend an attorney I would say Stephen Orchard all the way. He is genuine and caring, & he shows it. Mr.Orchard was always there when ever I had questions. He gives 110% of himself to you.

  2. Very painful experience with this attorney as he doesn't have adquate experience with Bankruptcy laws.

    • I do not recommend Stephen Orchard.

    Enough time has passed for me to write this review. We went to seek advice from Stephen Orchard on Chap. 7 with large assets from inheritance, Stephen states we were perfect candidates for BK. As we were going thru the process, things kept unfolding differently than what was expected. So we terminated him and seeked advice from two additional attorneys, found out that BK was not the best option for us, (since we had assets) both of these attorneys were appalled of the advice provided by Stephen Orchard. We tried to Dismiss the BK (instead of Discharge) but it was too late since BK was already filed. We lost all the money from the inheritance but luckily got a Discharge since there was mistakes with the paperwork filed by Stephen Orchard . We were ill informed of options and Stephen failed us in lack of adequate knowledge, slow or lack of response and bad advice. He had made this process extremely costly and painful for us under an already stressful situation, there were many sleepless nights when we were under his guidance, wondering what is next and what to expect as everything he told us would happen... did not. Stephen Orchard may be an expert in another field but definitely not BK. There are plenty of qualified attorneys out there, I would advise to get a few consultations before picking the right one to represent you.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that your case did not unfold as you had hoped. It is also unfortunate that your review is based upon a scenario in which you have omitted key details. I distinctly recall advising you and your husband of all potential negative outcomes of bankruptcy. You may also recall that I advised you and your husband of unfavorable factors which were created well before we met. We conducted several in person, telephonic and email consultations prior to filing the case. You and your husband, after weighing all factors, determined that bankruptcy was your best option. I wish you and your husband nothing but the best in your future endeavors.

    Steve is one of the select few attorneys that will do what he says.
    Throughout my entire proceeding he prepped me accordingly. He made the process smooth and I would refer him to anyone who needs his assistance.

    • I recommend Stephen Orchard.
    • I hired Stephen more than 3 years ago.
    • Stephen handled my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Orchard is a very fine bankruptcy attorney, and if anyone should find themselves in such an unenviable position, Steve is your man. He was very knowledgeable on the laws, and always returned my phone calls and emails. My case seemed to have a lot of unusual twists and turns, and I was fortunate to have his guidance through those times. I highly recommend him.
