We first went to a large firm you see on TV but we felt a bit lost in the shuffle and like a number and was not able to speak to the attorney. We hired Mr. Laver because he was a small firm and we could talk directly to him. His price was also very competitive.
We did our homework and look him up on the state bar site. He did not have any red marks against him. We were surprised how may lawyer are out there still practicing and have major complaints against them.
We checked to see if he belonged to the NACBA. That is the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. Most of the top firms belong to this group because they give the attorney up dated information on cases on what is happening in their area. He is a member.
Mr. Laver offered free consultations so he could can review our situation in detail and determine whether he could help us. We felt confident that he was experienced, and felt comfortable with him representing us.
We hope we never had to go through this again but if we did, we would use his services. About 6 months later we refinanced a home and needed some information. We gave him a call and he was glad to give us the information we needed without charging us.

If I had listened to Mr. Laver, I'd be in prison. Not only did he advise me to hide my lawsuit from the trustee, he neglected to exempt my assets, causing me real hardship when my lawsuit closed. I have filed charges against him and can only advise anyone to stay far away from this man.
One more thing - - he misspelled "litigation."
