I can not say enough good things about Scott Zochowski. He is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys I have had the pleasure of retaining. His responsiveness is excellent, I never requested a call back or had a question that wasn't responded to within 24 hours. Every step of the way Scott kept me up to date on issues and pending events. I was never caught unprepared or unaware. Scott mirrors everything an excellent attorney should be. I am so grateful for his help through a difficult time. I highly recommend his services.

Scott Zochowski is by far the best attorney we have ever had to hire. My husband is very sick and unfortunately, we do and did not have health insurance, so after months and months of struggling to pay these bills we succumbed to bankruptcy. Honestly, he made this terrible situation in our lives so much easier to handle. Scott is an amazing attorney, he is thorough, competent, extremely knowledgeable and best of all, takes the TIME to answer every single one of your questions, no matter how small or irrelevant. He makes you feel like you are his only client. A True Blessing, not to mention his office staff is also amazing. Thank you again Scott and team!!! It will be our honor to refer you!!!

Scott is an excellent attorney. My husband and I had to file Chapter 7 when we lost our business. He calmed our anxieties by explaining every detail of the process. He was always there when we needed questions answered, and has a pleasant staff. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

My family was going through a foreclosure and we needed some advice so we contacted Mr. Zochowski. He was very helpful in explaining all of the options we had. He is easy to talk to and is very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Mr. Zochowski.

Once we decided it was time we contacted Scott to handle our Bankruptcy. He educated us, warned us, and directed us as he showed us a way through our financial issues. He has a very calming demeanor, allowing us to finally relax. The case went just as he had described it. We could not be happier or recommend Scott Zochowski more strongly

I was scared and unsure about what to do. Scott walked me through everything. He answered all my questions (even the stupid ones). He was very knowledgeable and always responded promptly to my phone calls and emails. Everyone in the office was extremely nice and very helpful. Even though the process of filing bankruptcy was uncomfortable, Scott made sure I had all the information and all the tools to proceed smoothly. As a future lawyer myself, I know what good representation looks like and I gladly recommend Scott.

I found Scott Zochowski without a referral, which is unlike me, and I'm so glad I did! I probably did 100 hours of research on getting out of my underwater 80/20 mortgage, and after speaking with him on the phone, I could tell right away how knowledgable he was. Other attorneys wanted a big retainer to do (potentially harmful!) paper work that I could do myself or they made a complex problem seem like it was easy to get out of, which I know it is not. No one really had the thoughtfulness to understood all of my concerns. Scott, however, spent a ton of time answering all of my questions and providing me with excellent advice based on his experience and expertise on my options and risks. He really understands real estate law and didn't sugarcoat the reality. He also helped me put a lot of the risks I am facing in perspective and it was great to brainstorm solutions with him. He brought up points that I hadn't considered (which is hard to do after over 100 hours of researching and lots of advice from my out of state sibling who is an attorney), even on family dynamics of borrowing money. I recommend Scott and I will be using his services in the future.

Scott and his team successfully secured my Chapter 7 discharge in a timely fashion, keeping me well informed along the way. I had one creditor initiate an adversarial action claiming intentional fraud. They sought over $14K. Scott and his team did such a great job defending the truth, that the creditor, in unusual fashion, offered a settlement prior to our trial date. In the end, I settled for what the cost to proceed would have been ($2K). Scott and I were both confident that we would have prevailed moving forward, however, I chose to respect the Judges recommendation to settle out of court. At the end of the day, I was going to spend $2K either way. As a result of the great work performed, there was no finding of fact (ie. no finding of guilt against me). Scott, William and the entire staff at Zochowski Law performed exemplary work. I can highly recommend this professional outfit to anyone who is in need of an extremely competent bankruptcy attorney.

Mr. Zochowski makes a very difficult time in your life much easier. His compassion and skill as a bankruptcy attorney came through in everything he did. I was very lucky to be referred to him and would recommend him to my friends. I just want to say thank you to all of the staff at Zochowski Law and tell them they helped me get the fresh start I needed in my life!

Hiring Scott Zochowski was the smartest decision I made in an otherwise overwhelming, confusing and intimidating situation. I felt powerless in my situation with an upside down mortgage yet I wanted to be as responsible and as informed as I could and make choices that would protect my best interest. After my first consultation with Scott I felt prepared to start the bankruptcy process. Of course I was extremely embarrassed and still licking my financial wounds but having a dedicated, experienced and respectful attorney enabled me to find hope in what felt like hopeless scenario.
I had been trying to short sale my house for over a year to no avail and getting the complete run around from the bank. Filing for bankruptcy was really the only solution that would protect me from future deficiency judgement and help me to finally move forward.
It's been almost a year since I filed and went to court. It wasn't the worst thing in the world, but that is only because I had Scott as my representation.
My credit score isn't as bad as I had thought and I'm living quite sufficiently without the reliance on credit. Scott has also helped with the credit re-building process and now I'm on the path to financial recovery.

Scott represented me in a family law case in Oakland County Circuit Court. On the day of court, everything went smoothly. It was exactly as Scott had described, and I felt very over-prepared. I still benefit today, years later, from the favorable outcome in my case. While I was in court, I saw other people who could not find their lawyers and who were stressed out. Scott met me early before court, gave me his undivided attention through the proceedings, and stayed afterward to make sure I understood the next steps in the case and that I got an official copy of the judge's signed order for my records. I greatly appreciated Scott's professionalism and attention to detail and have recommended him to my friends.

I was in a car accident, sadly, and got a ticket. Scott's hard work prevented me from getting any points on my driving record. Which saved me money on my auto insurance and as a new driver (of three months) allowed me to keep my driver's license.

Mr. Zochowski assisted me with a traffic violation.
The matter was resolved to my satisfaction in a timely manner.
I've recommended Mr. Zochowski to several friends--
who were also pleased with both the handling and outcome
of their cases.

Highly recommended without a reservation!
