Karen took over my personal Chapter 11 case from another attorney who was a disaster. Karen straightened everything out and got me to a successful, confirmed plan. My personal Chapter 11 plan was confirmed today, only because of Karen. Don't know what I would have done without her. I highly recommend Karen.
Out of the three lawyers I consulted, Karen Porter made me feel the most comfortable in obtaining her services on filing bankruptcy. She immediately turned her focus on what my specific needs were and clearly wanted to figure out the root of my debt problems; she explained that she not only just file bankruptcy cases, but try to assist in preventing re-occurrence of future debt trouble. I would highly recommend Karen Porter's services, for she is very attentive towards her client's needs.
I have retained more than 5 lawyers in different areas of law within the past 3 years and Karen has been by far the best attorney I have retained. Not only is she knowledgeable in her area of law, she is honest and upfront in her advice. What has impressed me the most is her willingness to answer all questions, her prompt responses when ever she was contacted, quick to take action in my case to keep it moving along, and was always very easy to reach. I wish she worked in other areas of law so that I can retain her for all my legal needs!
In 2010 my wife and me were faced with a sheriff sale on our house within 10 days, and financial disaster. A friend had told me about the Porter Law Firm and I called and arranged for a meeting with Ms. Karen Porter about our dire straits. Believe me it was a eye opening experience to hear about our options for chapter 11.
The word Bankruptcy scared the hell out of us, but Ms. Porter was excellent in explaining all our options in every detail. Ms. Porter with us from start to finish, after 15 months, we saved our house and our bankruptcy case was dismissed.
We highly recommend the Porter Law Firm
A Very, Very Relived and Happy Client
Karen Porter really helped my wife and I through the bankruptcy process. She was patient and very good at explaining things we did not understand. She let us know what bankruptcy was and was not, the differences between Chapters 11 and 7, answered our questions by phone and email in a timely and helpful manner, kept us informed every step of the way, and brought the process to a successful conclusion. She made the whole thing much less scary, clearly knew what she was doing, and was well prepared and well received by the judge. Highly recommended.
