I found myself in an impossible situation after a bad divorce. I looked many different places for help and found plenty ready to take advantage of my situation. This was very disappointing reaching out for help and being ponced on by wolves in sheep clothing trying to make a buck off you. Be careful who you trust when it comes to debt consolidation, business offering to settle your debt, as sometimes bankruptcy is truly the way you need to go. It's not easy to find yourself in this situation but Mrs. Shanks staff made it as easy as possible. They see people when they are at their lowest low and without judgement work to make the best decisions for their clients. Easy to talk to, lots of experience and tell you just what to expect the whole way along. Speaking from someone who explored every option before filing for bankruptcy I would highly recommend you speak with Mrs. Shanks team first for them to explain the way the law works to help people who find themselves unable to pay their debt. Avoid all the people who want to negotiate your debt for a price as they make a profit from doing this and very often you would have been much better off to have filed bankruptcy and your credit in the long haul would have taken lessor of a hit. Bankruptcy is put into place by law to help debtors. This was the most difficult time of my life but it was such a relief to be freed of the debt and given a clean slate to start over. The calls from collectors stop and after a few months the chapter 7 is filed and behind you. It does pretty well ruin your credit for quite a few years but really not much if any worst than working with debt settlement companies. Be careful who you trust. Remember bankrutcy as nasty of a word as it is, It is a law created to protect and help people who find theirselves unable to make their debt. See a good lawyer first like Mrs. Shanks as some of these private debt consolation/settlement companies will try to convince you that you don't qualify for bankrupcy or you will lose your home/car. This in my opinion is a scare Tackett to try to make a $ off you. I was told this and it certainly was not true. I was able to file chapter 7 lost nothing I owned, stayed in my home and kept my car. Call Mrs. Shanks or research the bankruptcy law before visiting the so called free places just waiting to help.

Erin Shank and her staff did an excellent job filing my case for Bankruptcy. I had over 15 years of debt that they helped me clear from my records. I recommend them to anyone struggling with debt.

I have gone through so much, as I know many people, & making the decision to file bankruptcy was not something I did without a lot of thinking & praying. Erin & her staff treated me professionally & friendly. I felt part of her family with all of the care they showed me. All of her staff are top notch & you can't ask for more. Lena Hughes, who I never met went to battle & won for me. So when you decide to have Erin Shank as your Attorney & also get an outstanding service from all of her employees.

On our initial visit to Erin's office, we felt completely at ease with our decision to file Chapter 7 in our need for help. They are very efficient and thorough with all our information to insure that the process went as expected. They answered all our questions and was able to keep us in our home and cars and able to help us get a fresh start. Thank You Erin for all your help.

We were in a bad situation when we came to Erin for help. My husband is a disabled veteran, and we were going under financially. Thanks to Erin and her staff for our 2nd chance. There is something to be said for experience, and our successful bankruptcy proves it.
