Tom handled our chap 13 and then our conversion to a chap 7. Tom gives it to you straight and offers good advice. He was very helpful in guiding us through a tough process. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering bankruptcy.
I had a very difficult situation financially. With over 250,000 dollars of debt, I had no choice but to file bankruptcy and start over. Tom helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. In a matter of weeks he had the paperwork handled and the filing had been done. All of the debt collector calls ceased and in 90 days I had been discharged of all the debt I had accumulated over 12 years. Thanks to Tom Baynton I am able to start over new and not worry anymore.
Tom is a fantastic lawyer... He was gracious enough to accept my case, and from day 1 was helpful, realistic, and honest. I have had friends who told me their lawyers didn't prepare them for what was going to happen, and really made the process sound easy... Tom is not that lawyer, he is 100 percent honest about what to expect, and really is on your side but wants to help get you ready for your trial. I appreciated his honesty, because as a young person, I was unaware of what was going on, and the true ramifications of my actions. Tom helped me to get through my case, and get a really great verdict.... I have to be frank, he really challenged me to think why I did what I did, and how it affects people.. and from their I went on to change my life! He really helped my realize I couldn't keep living the way I was, and that I needed to be more. I cannot tell you enough good things about Tom, and his service, and truly from the bottom of my heart, I owe him for changing my life. One piece of advice, if you are going to use Tom be prepared for honest reality... he is not a lawyer who promises you everything and delivers little... he is truthful and honest, and really helps you get prepared for your case.
