Making the decision to file for bankruptcy was initially a daunting task. I had friends who'd made the bold move to improve their lives and credit, and recommended for me to file. They did warn me the process could take half a year and the paperwork would be overwhelming. I went into my first meeting with Ron Sykstus expecting the worst. I left feeling relieved and overjoyed I'd walked into his particular office. The process was painless, aside from a few weekend evenings of paperwork and credit report reviews. Each appointment brought me closer to my goal and when the filing and court date was completed, I felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders.
Thanks Ron, for making my case a priority and giving me back some financial hope.

I hired Mr. Ron Sykstus to represent me for a hearing to keep my security clearance. Mr. Sykstus was courteous , responsive, thoughtful, and extremely knowledgeable. However, above this, Mr. Sykstus sincerely cared about my hearing and its impact on my career. When he contacted me that my clearance was granted, Mr. Sykstus was genuinely glad that this hearing worked out in my favor. I believe that it is Mr. Sykstus’s sincere commitment to his clients in combination with his professionalism that ensures the best representation one would hope for.

Ron Sykstus did an outstanding job handling a bankruptcy for me. He kept me informed and treated me with kindness and respect. He helped me make important decisions based on his expertise.I would recommend him to anyone considering a bankruptcy. After talking to others who had been through a similar experience mine was much easier and affordable than theirs. Ron explained the process and actually made it easy. His advice was very valuable. He has continued to return my calls and answer other questions for me. He is the BEST!!

I would like to take a minute to express my heartfelt appreciation for my experience with Ron Sykstus during my recent Chapter 13 process.
I was most impressed with his professionalism, accuracy of information/direction, facts/figures and timelines as well as some good advice. In point, I came away with all my questions answered and (much needed) peace of mind!
I am also gratified to say that his knowledge and (obvious) years of experience made the process so much easier than I EVER expected. Ron, thank you for delivering what you say with such expedience and efficiency! Also, for you (and your staff) not making me feel less in an already strenuous situation.

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.
