During the past two years, Ron has assisted me in bringing clarity and guidance to a complicated student loan. Through Ron's help I was able to request from the Student Loan Agency the needed information to clarify what plan I was on and why I was being billed a very high payment. After gathering all the information needed, I applied for and was placed on, a plan that will lower my monthly payments.
Ron was very helpful and always made himself available. I was impressed that he responded quickly to my messages, and was very kind, clear and professional. I would highly recommend him.

Mr. Sykstus helped me with several cases beginning roughly ten years ago. The first case he worked on for me was a bankruptcy that another attorney mishandled. Mr. Sykstus was professional and prompt. He again helped me with a credit card issue several years later, associated with the previous bankruptcy, again in a professional, courteous, and prompt manner. Lastly, he worked with me in the past month regarding a small issue. I absolutely recommend his services and his office and would certainly use his services in the future, if necessary.
My only other experience with attorneys has been with a divorce and the mishandled bankruptcy. Neither of those two were as professional, prompt, nor personable as Mr. Sykstus.

I contacted Ron Sykstus with several questions regarding our Chapter 13 bankruptcy and its' affect on our ability to secure a re-finance loan, while still 14 months out of completing our Ch. 13 plan. Other questions pertained to the VA Compensation & Pension process, and also, a potential DoD Security Clearance issue caused by the bankruptcy. Ron responded within 30 minutes with clear, concise guidance. Within another few minutes, I received the necessary documents to fill out and send the court trustee. We've used Mr. Sykstus on several occasions, always finding his knowledge current and procedural directions easy to follow. Our results using Ron's guidance have always been positive! If you need professional legal advice, then I heartily recommend calling Mr. Ron Sykstus!

After five years and using the VA rep. I had only four denials to show for my trouble. I had been trying to get service connected for an auto-immune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) that affects the spine. I knew the symptoms had begun while I was on active service but did not file for almost ten years after separation, it took me seven years to get a diagnoses from a rheumatologist of AS. I had plenty of documentation from my time in service until the time I filed showing ongoing treatment but never was able to pull it together like Mr. Sykstus and his assistant Jennifer did. Thanks to them my fifth decision was an approval of service connection. The percentage the VA has decided to award unfortunately is quit a bit lower than I and Mr. Sykstus believe I deserve and he has agreed to file on my behalf to get my percentage increased. I have full faith in Mr. Sykstus and his office that with their help I will be able to obtain a decision from the VA we both feel is fair. At that time my new title for my review for Mr. Sykstus will read "So far so excellent!"

Mr Sykstus was a life saver. I would trust him to handle any law problem.I had a creditor seeking a settlement that was unfair. The case was dismissed and I couldnt be happier. Best decision was to place that call.

Mr. Sykstus has been my attorney for a few months . He has helped me with a bad debt situation. The collection agency that was pursuing me, hired an attorney to represent them. In return, I hired Mr. Sykstus to represent me. Mr. Sykstus went to court for me and won the case. Mr. Ron Sykstus is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and I would highly recommend him.

Mr. Sykstus is the type of lawyer you want in your corner when the creditors or other unscrupulous companies are banging on your doors both at work and at home. When I met him for the first time I had several collections agencies harassing me for a bill that I did not owe. For several years, I attempted to resolve this issue by myself, and it was not working. The stress level in my life was definitely an eight or ten on a scale of ten.
He guided me through the whole process by educating me on documenting all of my conversations with the creditors and logically building a strong case. He guided me on writing to the three collection agencies. Building a time line and communicating via certified mail are the foundation for a strong case, according to this great lawyer. And having him on your corner providing the right words makes a solid foundation made of steel, according to me. In my book, he and his team are the dream team.
He was God sent, and he put those companies in the right place. He definitely left me smiling. Each time, I have a problem with unscrupulous companies, I call Ron; he is in my speed dial.

Mr. Sykstus did a great job advising me with my security clearance application. He always responds very quickly to email, even on weekends or while travelling (or both). I feel like he was very good at letting me know exactly where I stood. I'd recommend his services to anyone applying for a security clearance that has a less than perfect background.

Around 4 years ago, we started building our dream house. My wife and I performed a lot of the work ourselves and I acted as the general contractor. During this time, the housing market collapsed, I was laid off from work and the job market in the area, where we were building, dried up. Out of stubbornness and unwilling to give up on my dream home, I continued to build the house using my retirement savings. As the housing market crashed, the appraised value of the house shrank below the cost of construction. The bank was no longer willing to provide additional financing, originally at 90%+ but was reduced to 80% when I needed additional funds. Our savings dwindled, and I was forced to relocate to another state to find employment. This put us in the untenable position of completing the house without financing or capital, while living and maintaining a residence in a different state. Luckily, I was put in contact with Ronald Sykstus. He was able to resolve our situation by providing excellent legal counsel, while handling our Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. I don’t envy anyone that finds themselves in our situation. However, if you do, I highly recommend you seek out the legal consultation of Ronald Sykstus at Bond, Botes, Sykstus, Tanner & Ezzell, P.C.

We had devolved into a desperate financial situation facing adverse legal actions that would permanently and irrevocably ruin the remaining course of our lives. Facing that certainty, we sought counsel from several attorneys. In each case we were clinically and impersonally handed a photocopied workbook [in some cases through a pass-through window] and sent on our way to fill it out. We felt like cattle being prepped for the processing plant. That was the case until, after months of searching, I had the good fortune to hear of Bond, Botes and Sykstus. We called and an appointment was granted not only immediately, but cheerfully. We were courteously guided to Ron’s office and greeted with a vigorous handshake and a warm engaging smile. We were instantly put at ease. Ron listened intently and posed thoughtful relevant questions regarding our situation. After listening he then, both personally and professionally, and with questions focusing the issues, reasoned though potential scenarios, weighing the pros and cons of each for us. I was most surprised how quickly he took ahold of the situation and had intelligent, reasonable solutions to offer. He empathetically assisted us in determining the necessary data collection and input. Our ability to handle the load was quickly determined and we were guided through the process of selecting the most appropriate remedy; and, when chosen, it was initiated immediately. The inevitable multi-year process was a grind, but Ron kept his hand on the helm and maneuvered us through the “storms” along the way, always personally and with a smile and good wish. All culminated in a timely discharge, a full restoration to normalcy and a return for us to the path of life, refreshed and able to resume fully enjoying the wealth of family, the joys of our children and grandchildren as well as the greater purposes that accompany. We were blessed in meeting this man, Ron Sykstus, and are most grateful for his keen intelligence, extraordinary talents and abilities and now; most especially for his continuing friendship. He is a credit to mankind and lends credit and class to the term “Attorney”.

Mr. Sykstus has been my attorney since 2010, but I have known of him for many years before that. I retained him because of his excellent reputation and I have not been disappointed. He is professional, knowledgeable and most definately trustworthy. His email responses are always quick, as are his return phone calls.
I will retain him again if the need arises and I do recommend him.

Bankruptcy plain sucks. No one wants to go through it, and I wasn't an exception. Worried about losing my home, cars and business, we turned to Ronald for help. And help he did. We are fully discharged from bankruptcy.
Even while under bankruptcy we had some issues that came up from missing payments, and we were not charged extra or made to feel like we were at fault. Ronald just helped us with our options and make the best decisions possible. Every time I had a question, he was very responsive and eased my worries.

Successful Security Clearance
I have had a security clearance for over 24 years, but two years ago I found myself in an unfortunate position when my clearance was recommended to be revoked. I found Ron’s contact information online, and decided to schedule an initial consultation to see if he could help me. Ron seemed very knowledgeable of the Statement of Reasons (SOR) and Department of Hearing and Appeals (DOHA) process and I decided to hire him. He prepared and extensive package of my background and prepared me and my character witnesses for the hearing.
Ron scheduled my appointments around my busy work schedule and promptly returned calls and answered questions that I had pertaining to my case. He showed a personal interest in my career and family and demonstrated genuine care for the outcome of my case. In the end, we were successful in retaining my security clearance and I am now able to move forward with my current career goals and pursue additional opportunities. You can’t place a price on the relief and gratitude that my family and I have, now that my clearance has been retained.
I would recommend Ron to anyone in need of representation to retain a security clearance.

My experience with Mr. Sykstus has been the best experience I have ever had with an attorney. He always stated the facts of my situation and never led me to believe anything other than what the potential outcomes could be.
Mr. Sykstus professional demeanor and responsiveness to my concerns was "second to none". I always received a response to my questions the same day. Usually with the hour. He even responded on weekends. I have never found another attorney that demonstrated the care and concern for their client like his.
Mr. Sykstus will get my future business and high recommendations to anyone looking for a lawyer to assist them with Security Clearance issues.

I was being sued by a debt collector by way of an old friend and was in need of my own attorney. I went online did a Google search and picked Bond & Botes. I received an email from Ron with a few questions and made an appointment to see him. After speaking with Ron I felt more at ease with the situation I was in. From the time I hired him to take care of this matter until the very end--he stayed in contact with me making sure we had everything in order. There were times when my nerves got the best of me, but again Ron assured me he was sure we could win. It was a blessed day for me when I received a call from Ron telling me we had won the suite and I didn't owe anything. I really appreciate everything Ron did, and I would recommend him to anyone who may be going through debt problems even if it's not your fault. Call Ron and give him a chance!

My husband and I are small-business owners and when the economy failed our business started to plummet along with it. We were head deep in debt didn't know which way to go. We were on the verge of losing everything that we had, so we called Ron and made an appointment. We went into his office not knowing what to expect, scared, confused and ready for something to happen to help our situation. Everything that Ron said for us to do, we did and he did the same in return. We left his office with hope that we could continue our business and keep going and he reassured us that there is life after bankruptcy. Ron laid out a plan for us, Told us what to expect, and that's exactly what happened. Ron changed our lives forever, and we are so thankful for what he and his firm did for us. Thank you Ron for all of your dedication to our situation and for making it easier or us to go to sleep at night.

I've known of Ron Sykstus for over twenty years and first used him eight years ago. He is an advocate for consumers and consumer protection against ridiculous lending and collecting practices. My particular case was over eight years old and Ron still offered guidance and support to present issues with property and credit. His selflessness and dedication to his clients is second to none.

Ron took the time to understand my situation and worked tireless to help me find the best solution for this most difficult situation.

Ron was by my side the entire time. He personally answered any and every question or concern i called regarding my case. He returned every message, voicemail, and email. When he tells you that he is here for you no matter whst he means it. He shows it by his actions. You will not find this kind of personal interaction with any other lawyer or firm in the area. I know because i have used them.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Ron Sykstus to anyone needing legal assistance. We have had several occasions to need the services of an attorney in the past several years. We were lucky the first time we needed an attorney, we found Ron Sykstus. He immediately put us at ease and lessened our fears of the judicial process. He took the time to explain things to us in layman's terms and never talked over our heads or down to us. He took over and handled everything for us while at the same time keeping us informed of the progress. He is very professional yet down-to-earth and has been a pleasure to work with.

After holding a security clearance in good standing for 16 years, I was in danger of having mine revoked. Without Ron’s help, I would not have my clearance back, and I would not be back on my career path in this terrific job. Ron's qualifications in this field ensured he was meticulous and precise in preparing my case, and his experience allowed him to provide highly accurate expectations and predictions - from the timeline of events, to the atmosphere and conduct of the hearing itself. He formulated a customized plan based on my situation and background, and executed it flawlessly.
Throughout the process, it was important to Ron to have regular face-to-face meetings, and he kept me updated constantly via phone and email. He also encouraged my input, and was always available if I had a question. Perhaps just as importantly, Ron demonstrated he cared not only about me, but my family as well, and was genuinely interested in our history and well-being. I have no doubts that Ron took a personal interest in my case and worked tirelessly to obtain this positive outcome for me.
He was worth every bit of what I paid him, and has my permission to share my name and phone number with any prospective security clearance client who considers hiring him. I'm convinced I made the right decision in hiring Ron, and that no other attorney could have obtained this outcome. With his help, I've received a new start on my old life, and the burden of several years of worry has been lifted.

Ron and his staff did a wonderful job with a lot of information, to file this case in a timely manner.

Ronald Sykstus has represented us twice in the past several years and it has been an absolute pleasure working with him - particularly under such stressful conditions! Ron was incredibly helpful and managed our case with such specific expertise that the entire process was seamless to us.
It is always important to have representation that is well-versed in their subject matter. Ron showed us his depth of knowledge in our particular instance, as our case presented some rather unusual circumstances. He took those peculiarities and turned them to our favor.
We would recommend Ron Sykstus (and have) without hesitation to anyone who has need of a specialist in Bankruptcy law. We will always be grateful to him for his good work and his kindness.

After depleting all savings, the credit card debt, vehicle payments, and getting behind on routine bills; we contacted Ron to inquire about a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Ron, always punctual, greeted us and made us feel comfortable from the initial interview. We found his understanding of the Alabama Ch. 13 case law extensive, and through past experiences with the bankruptcy judges, was able to provide us reasonable expectations as to how the court hearing would proceed. Needless to say, it was a hard decision made easier. Ron is an understanding, honest, and trustworthy gentleman. He remains attentive to client needs after the case - and returns phone calls, messages, and emails within a few hours! Truly outstanding, I would highly recommend Ron Sykstus for all your legal needs. Ease your mind now - CALL Ron today!

After struggling for years to break through the VA gridlock via the VFW and DAV, I decided to contact Ron. He'd given me great advice on an unrelated legal matter and I recalled that he also assisted Veterans in their quest to attain VA benefits that are rightfully their's. Upon our first meeting, it was evident that he knew what he was doing. He had a game plan already in mind, the proper paperwork prepared, and instructions on what role I would play in this quest. His expert advice put me at ease and gave me the peace of mind that I'd not experienced on past appeals and disputes with the VA. The net affect is that we received a favorable Service Connection rating via the BVA (Board of Veteran's Appeals) and a favorable increase in monthly compensation. It appeared to me that having Ron represent me during my BVA video hearing with a VA Judge--his presence garnered a certain leval of respect from the Judge. His grasp of the case law was credible. I would strongly recommend his services to any veteran that I meet.

I would definitely hire Ron if you are being sued by a creditor. He has a vast knowledge of the process and makes you feel at ease during the process.

I had a problem with retaining my security clearance absolutely essential for the Missile Defense business I’m in. It seemed that I had a few inadvertently security lapses at the time within a 33 year career (at the time). Ron was recommended to me by the Security Officer at my company. Two of the lapses were over 20 years old and only one within the last 5 years. It was initially under the impression that this charge was motivated by some political views I had. Ron calmly explained that was probably not the case and gave me confidence that could retain my clearance through a DOHA court review. He was right and prepared me and my character references well. He performed flawlessly in court. I was allowed to keep my clearance and have continued my work in the Missile Defense area where I deal with classified material most days.
It is not a stretch at all to say Ron saved my career. I am presently Chief Scientist for the Targets and Countermeasures Directorate. It would have been very hard to get a job in some new area at the age of 55-56 at anywhere near the salary I currently enjoy.
So I am very sincere in recommending him as a lawyer who prepares well and has a comforting way with his clients.

I originally contacted Mr. Sykstus to discuss what the best option for me would be regarding some very old debt. He contacted me personally to set up an appointment and to answer any questions I may have at that time. During my consultation, he explained everything in great detail. Mr. Sykstus gave me his recommendation of bankruptcy, his reason why, and what the process would be. At the end of the consultation, I hired him.
Mr. Sykstus was with me throughout the entire bankruptcy process. I was always kept informed with the status of case and my calls were always returned promptly. I was highly impressed.
I knew I had made the best decision in hiring Mr. Sykstus by his patience with me. My son was less than a year old when I hired Mr. Sykstus and had to bring him with me to his office on several occasions. Mr. Sykstus helped me in keeping my son occupied when I needed to sign papers, read something over, or anything of the kind. The fact that he treated my son with respect warmed my heart.
I would recommend Mr. Sykstus to anyone who is considering bankruptcy or has any problem(s) with debt and seeking more information. He was a life saver for me!
Thank you again Mr. Sykstus!

This guy is a very knowledgable and experienced civil action attorney who listens and thinks through the situation before acting. I was faced with a seemingly insurmountable civil matter with serveral large corporations who refused to grant me the legal relief that I was seeking. Ron, after listening to me, took my case on a contingency basis. He skillfully walked me through the case and stood with me all the way. His superb legal skills resulted in a substantial monetary award for me. In addition to the sizeable monetary reward, Ron's stellar efforts resulted in my credit reports being corrected in accordance with the law. Thanks Ron for a job well done!

I am a University professional with 2 PhDs, and I would be hard-pressed to find a more competent, knowledgeable, efficient, caring Attorney. Actually, the entire experience was handled so well, it seemed easy- but I, in fact, know that would not have been the case without Mr. Sykstus' remarkable knowledge and capability. I recommend him most strongly without reservation based upon his handling my Chapter 7 and attendant topics, which outcome could not have been more favorable. In any event, again, as a person who is accustomed to dealing with top-flight professionals in both the Higher Education and Business sector, Mr. Sykstus compares most favorably in the reliabiolity and capability with which he handled every aspect of what both he and I thought was a rather complex case. Every time he told me his opinion and expectation, those opinions and expectations came to be realities. Do yourself a favor and call Mr. Sykstus if you are experiencing financial complexities and are possibly considering filing Bankruptcy. Mr. Sykstus was highly recommended by two respected Attorneys in this area, and their very high and posititve recommendations turned out to be true in Spades. Less you think that I am just lightly evaluating my experience, I will stop by saying, if you are experiencing any type of financial difficulty, "Call Mr. Sykstus NOW".
