I was referred to Douglas Kuthy in 2008 by another law firm when my company began having cash flow problems due to my bank’s extremely aggressive way of handling my loan. At the time I was told that Doug is an expert in debt resolution and bankruptcy. I have been very happy with Doug’s representation for several years in state court, during my bankruptcy, and in my wife’s bankruptcy.
Doug did an excellent job in litigating the dispute with the bank and kept them from interfering with attempts to sell the business and cure my financial problems. When I was unable to sell the business Doug took me through a personal Chapter 7 bankruptcy which resolved my business and personal debt problems completely.
Doug was quite astute. His observations regarding the property ownership of my wife and myself allowed us to get through the process with no interference from the courts. Since we have been outside of bankruptcy Doug has given us excellent advice on how to rebuild ourselves and we are now out of the financial woods and own another house. We anticipate that we will be completely debt free within a couple of years and own our home outright.
In short, Doug has excellent “people” skills, clearly knows debtor creditor law, and guided us through a complicated financial situation with skill and good humor. I really appreciate Doug’s help and highly recommend him to anyone else who may be having financial problems.
Working with Mr. Kuthy was a great experience. He guided us through a difficult Chapter 13 and was both reassuring and knowledgeable of what we were to expect. We would highly recommended Mr. Kuthy. He was very honest and upfront. He will tell you if he is unable to do something. Very straightforward. We would definitely recommend Mr. Kuthy for any legal issue that may arise.
Over 50 years ago, my father taught me never to walk away from repaying a loan honestly extended. That is why it tore me to shreds to think about filing for bankruptcy. Anxiety was high enough, until I confronted the mountain of confusing documents, and I decided that I needed someone to walk with me, to hold my hand. Doug was not just a knowledgeable guide through a very technical process, he was also a sympathetic ear and patient counselor. He understood the emotional and psychological pains that accompany a bankruptcy pursuit.
Before Doug, I was confused, uncertain, and overwhelmed. Once Doug came aboard, the fog began to clear. I still had to grapple with "the Decision" itself, and to that end Doug left me to decide, without any pressure from him, as to whether this was what I wanted to do. But he answered all of my many questions, as I worked through the Decision.
Once the decision was made, Doug made the entire process easy ... and painless. He was with me every step of the way, even as I sat before the Trustee at the infamous 341 Meeting. It all went so smoothly, and so quickly. And just yesterday I received final notice from the Court that my bankruptcy is official. All of that debt is now behind me, and I have a fresh start ... thanks, in no small part, to Doug Kuthy.
I highly recommend Doug to anyone contemplating this major step in their lives. It is never too late (I am 62) to correct for past mistakes, and to have a fresh start. Pick up the phone; call Doug. Have that free consultation. You have nothing to lose, except a ton of debt, and a great weight lifted from your shoulders. Doug will be with you, every step of the way. Good luck!
After talking to Doug the first time I felt he would be the right lawyer to represent my wife and I in a Chapter 13. Even thought this was one the toughest decisions of my life, Doug made the process seamless. He always kept me informed and made me feel he was working for me. Doug always gave me the impression he had my back. He is the type of lawyer that exceeded my expectations with his professionalism and caring attitude. He is the type of lawyer that will stand next to you not in front of you.
We were referred to Doug after our previous attorney ran into some personal issues and left us high and dry. Doug stepped right up to bat for us and salvaged what was certainly going to be a catastrophic disaster. We are so grateful for his expertise. He certainly knows his way around the courthouse. We highly recommend him for his professionalism, his expertise and kind personality.
If you need a great lawyer, Douglas Kuthy will do the job for you. He is rated 5 stars on all areas. Thank you for all your support, help, knowledge and help. Worth much more than you charge.
