I filed chapter 13 and was not pleased when almost a year later, it had not been settled. Rick was difficult to get ahold of and instead sent everything to his paralegal and to January who doesn't know what she's doing. When it was all done, the judge denied my plan and Rick dropped me like a hot potato. Now I have to file chapter 7 with a different attorney who will hopeful know more about the feasibility of a plan than just giving me false hope. I also received a bill for $3000 and he didn't do anything to help my situation. My case is very complex, so if yours is too, please go elsewhere.
Filed a Chapter 13 three years ago-Rick was very helpful and informative until it was filed and then he was impossible to get in touch with (actually told us it would cost us $125 to talk to him after we filed, even though the questions we had were about the bankruptcy we had already paid him for). Would not recommend to my worst enemy.
I was told upfront this would not be easy. It was better than I thought and my finances are improving. I like Rick. He is not your "typical attorney" and actually treats you like a person. I'd go talk with him and his staff. You will see what I mean.
Rick and his staff were great at getting us in and walking us through the initial process. However, that's where it ended. Once they got our case filed and they got their money, they were done with us. Do they not think that clients will have questions within the first year or so? When problems arose, we found the staff to be rude and when we did receive it information, it was often conflicting. Either pick a different attorney or save some money and file yourself.
