Bankruptcy is stressful and embarassing. Meeting with Deanna from the first day through the end she treated us with respect. We knew every step what was happening. She explained our options well, shared what the probable outcome would be, answered all questions well and responded very quickly. But I can't say enough about the treatment we had during a very difficult time. We would recommend Deanna Bachman to anyone considering bankruptcy.

Deanna was very helpful in helping me with the chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. I knew nothing about the process. She kept me informed from the beginning to the end. I would definitely recommend her.

MY Family and I was going through hard times. We determine to go with a Chapter 13 as it was the best option. During this process I lost my job. Deanna was very supportive of the situation and provided additional options at that time. It is done and Discharged as of July. We could not have completed this as smoothly without her constant updates and open communication.

We unfortunately had to go through a bankruptcy and were just a little over the amount to qualify for CH 7. Deanna is very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and even responded back on weekends. Since we were so close, she let us know we could convert to a CH7 from a CH 13 if we showed lower wages for 4 or 5 months, which was a piece of cake as that is why were were filing. She made both my husband and I very comfortable and she talked to us like normal people without looking down on us. I would highly recommend her and her office. Her prices are also very reasonable for the amount of work she does for you and the case; I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND!

My experience was exceptional, Deanna answered all my questions immediately, made me feel comfortable about having to go through this experience, kept me in the loop completely and updated as the situation progressed. I was extremely embarrassed having to resort to this means, however; after speaking with Deanna regarding this I knew I was making the right choice. Due to her diligence and knowledge, my experience was quick, painless and enlightening. I would definitely refer family and/or friends to Bachman Law for this experience.

Bankruptcy is a tough decision to make. Deanna was very helpful in making sure that bankruptcy was the right option, and once the decision was made, being emotionally supportive as well as extremely knowledgable about the entire process. She has truly been there from the beginning to the end of the process. I was very nervous about the court process but her ease with this and her relationship with the court personnel as well as her own peers put me at ease. She has been great at communicating- answered questions that I had as well as always letting me know what to expect ahead of time.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, my wife and I decided that we had no alternative except to file for bankruptcy. I had no knowledge of the process, what to do, what to expect, etc... . Deanna made us feel comfortable from the get go, and helped to guide us through the process. She was patient, understanding, knowledgeable, and would answer questions and concerns for us day and night, as well as, weekends too! She truly cared for us. I appreciate that she never cast judgement on us - she always made us feel good about ourselves and assured us that we were doing the right thing. With her continued guidance we are now past this part of our lives. I highly recommend Deanna!

After my divorce the time came to make the decision to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I was working with another attorney on another matter and he recommended Deanna. In my personal case there were a few times we had to start and stop the process and Deanna was more than understanding, accommodating and supportive. I always had the feeling that she was there for me whenever I needed her to be. Through all of our meetings; whether in person or on the phone; Deanna was always very personable, professional and thorough. Because of the unique nature of my particular case there were I believe 2 questions I had throughout the entire process that Deanna didn't know the answers to at that time; but she was very quick in researching for the answers. Once she had those answers she was quick in relaying the information back to me. I would say that every time we met I left her office with the feeling that we had addressed all that needed to be addressed for each step in the process. I never felt uncertain or "out of the loop" with Deanna. As my headline stated; she is very personable, professional, patient and proficient as an attorney and I would kindly recommend her to others .

We met with our own family attorney a couple of times before we decided to file Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Our attorney recommended Deanna Bachman to us and we were not disappointed. She is extremely knowledgeable about Iowa Bankruptcy Law and has provided my husband and me with excellent service (both pre and post service). In fact, six months later I needed help with two issues related to my Bankruptcy, and she handled both matters right away. This decision to file Chapter 13 was the hardest thing we have ever had to do, but she made the process much easier. She is efficient, non judgmental, and does not drag the process out. We were very pleased.
