    • I recommend Joseph Wantland.
    • I hired Joseph 1-3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I was afraid to file bankruptcy because my creditor said they would sue me if I did. I was terrified because it seemed this one particular creditor made it personal and would call me at my work, my home and then started calling my family. I had no choice but to call for help. I called Mr. Wantland's office and they treated me with much respect and calmed my nerves down. They told me the creditor would stop calling me after I filed and if they called again they would be in trouble for having done so. I could sleep soundly again and wake up with a smile on my face instead of dread. Mr. Wantland was very sweet to me and walked me through everything with kid gloves. I am thankful to have hired Mr. Wantland's firm.

    • I do not recommend Joseph Wantland.
    • I hired Joseph 1-3 years ago.
    • Joseph handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    J. Scott Wantland made $2,750 off my bankruptcy. He filed the paperwork but did not inform me of options to keep my house and payment plans with IRS. When he refused to turn my calls (after payment received), I got another attorney who is awesome! He worked to help me keep my house and pay the IRS and only made $100 off me. Keep looking until you find someone who geniunely cares. Scott only wants your money. He could care less about you as an individual.

    What can I say about Scott Wantland? I went to Scott in April of this year seeking financel relief. I had put off filing for bankruptcy way longer than I should have because I felt like a failure and to be honest a low life because I couldn't pay my bills. Scott made me feel much better about my decision to file and was very up front and honest with me about my options. Before I contacted Scott I had tried on my own to get my home mortgage modified for a lower payment without success. Out of desparation I turned to the internet for help and hired a out of state law firm that supposedly specialized in modification BIG MISTAKE! They have not helped me at all and claim that my filing bankruptcy has caused my modification to be put on hold. Even tough Scott had no part of this he has helped me all the way through this whole mess I got myself into. I email him at least once a week about something and he always responds right away. Scott has went above and beyond what I hired him to do and has just been awesome even though I made a huge stupid mistake. Never hire outside your own state. I would recomend Scott Wantland to anyone his dad Joe handled my divorce and did a great job! I'm so very Happy with Wantland Law

    As a manager of a large apartment community I depend on Scott and his team to help me with evictions and collections. In the 5 years since I found him we have not lost a case! I highly recommend Scott and his team at Wantland Law.
