Richard West and his staff were amazing. After a major disaster in my family, I was left with more debt than I could handle. That debt followed me till my wages were eventually being garnished. Having a few children, I couldn't afford to live off of what was left after the creditors took their share. He stayed after hours, worked around my schedule, and helped me file as soon as possible to stop garnishments immediately. His whole staff is friendly, comforting, knowledgable and ready to jump through hoops to help you get back on your feet. I didn't feel ashamed or embarrassed about my situation when I spoke with him. No one wants to file bankruptcy. In a way, its admitting failure and terrible financial decisions. They do not judge you... I would recommend him to anyone needing a fresh start. They're truly helping people, probably more than they even realize. My gratitude is immense:) Thanks West Law Offices!!
Great people! They were all extremely helpful and down to earth. Did not make me feel bad about my situation. They were very understanding and extremely helpful in explaining everything to me. Although I don't wish this on anyone I strongly recommend these guys if you ever find yourself in this terrible situation. They are definitely who you want on your side.
My first time with a lawyer on credit review and it was fast and easy. I thought it would take forever to get done but rick was no worries they did all leg work and gave me a good result. Would tell everyone to call him first then you have no problem.
I had racked up some bad debts over the years. Combine that with my six-figure student loan debt, I was treading water pretty bad. I contacted Richard to review my options and he sat down with me over the course of four meetings and was able to straighten out my finances and put me on the right path to managing my debt. He was very patient with me and explained everything in terms that I could easily understand. I would definitely recommend Richard to anybody who needs a credit counselor or is on the verge on bankruptcy. Thank you!
Mr. West was very kind, considerate and patient while we were going through an extremely hard situation. His knowledge and preparedness made a very bad time go a lot smoother than we thought possible. We are very pleased with his professionalism and the personal touch he gave us. We will continue to work with Mr. West as he continues to help us rebuild our lifestyle, that we thought was gone forever.
My family had an unexpected job loss and we found ourselves unable to handle all of our bills on a single income. We had always prided ourselves on paying bills on time and having great credit. We spoke to a couple of Attorney's but it was not until I found myself in Richard Wests office, in tears, and he was telling me that everything would be ok that I knew that we had found the right Attorney. The staff at the office handled every email, phone call, question and concern with honesty and respect,
Filing for relief of financial burdens has relieved a tremendous amount of stress and also allowed me to pay my debts at a rate that I could comfortably manage. I have managed to even have a decent savings account. which is essential for a budget that works I was able to take a wonderful vacation all paid for by saving the money and not using any credit cards . None of this would have been possible without the advise and guidance of my attorney, Richard West.
I gladly endorse this lawyer. I am an attorney and Dick and I worked together on one of the biggest and most complex Will Contest cases. We took the case all the way to a jury trial and settled on very favorable terms as a result against one of the best law firms in the State of Ohio. In addition I flew as a Flight Instructor with Dick and taught him to fly instruments. He is an accomplished pilot, an excellent attorney and a good friend.
From Mr. West's first analysis of my situation, he gave me hope and direction when I had none. He and his staff made sure I understood all the parts of my financial plan and the reasons for it. Some family members had argued with me about doing a bankruptcy, and I could explain to them and also have more confidence in my choice. I can't wait to do the credit repair so I can get a new car eventually!
West Law Offices was really there when I needed them. Thanks!
Mr. West and his staff were very well prepared and comforting throughout this process. We are so glad that we selected him to represent us and would highly recommend him to anyone.
