Nearly 1-1/2 years ago, my life was completely upside down. I contacted Burke Smith in hopes of finding an answer to the negative financial situation I was in. Burke went through all my options and assured me that he would walk me through each and every step no matter which avenue I chose.
After much consideration, I chose to go ahead with Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Burke provided the forms I needed to complete and went over them with me to make sure they were full and complete. He also let me make payments to him in several installments while I worked on gathering all the documents needed to file chapter 7 bankruptcy. His fee was very fair and competitive for this area. When I had questions, he was always there to answer them and always called back within 24-hours of any phone message I left.
The bankruptcy process in the courtroom could not have been better. Burke sat with me as we waited for our turn and we were literally in front of the trustee for less than 3 minutes. Over the last year and a half, Burke has called me to make sure that I have not continued to receive letters from creditors after the filing process. There were a few instances like that and he took action immediately to have that stopped.
If you are stressed out because of financial hardship due to medical bills or any other reason, I would highly recommend contacting Burke Smith for help. I'm so glad I did. Life is what you make of it and a clean slate gives you a chance to achieve goals that otherwise would seem entirely out of reach.
If your credit is holding you back from buying a home of your own or keeping you from sleeping peacefully, I want you to know there is light at the end of the tunnel and relief within reach. You have a lot of choices and paths you can go down but choosing Burke Smith to be my attorney was one of the best choices I've made and I wouldn't change a thing.
As the new year is just around the corner, I think of where I was just 2 years ago and where I am today financially. I'm very grateful for a second chance to get it right and although Burke Smith was my attorney, I now consider him a friend.

Burke represented me before he opened up his own law firm but I just wanted to say what a great job he did for me. I had a chapter 7 case and had a lot of questions and he did a great job answering them during the case. Something came up during the case where the trustee wanted some money from me because of some stuff that happened earlier and I was worried that I'd have to pay a bunch of money or my case would be thrown out. Burke talked with the trustee and before to long he said everything got worked out and I didn't have to pay extra money or go back to court or anything. The nice thing was that he told me what was going on and I didn't worry to much during the whole case.
