I filed chapter 13 with Clark Law Offices in 2011. During the past 6 months, I am in the process of attempting to refinance my home, and have needed their services to assist in the process. I call 2-3 times and leave messages, and don't get returned phone calls. I only get responses through email or if I continue to call to get connected. The last 3 attempts to contact them, emails weren't getting answered or responses. During these attempts to communicate, I went directly to the trustee to obtain information, and was able to do so on my own...in less than 5 minutes...yet they can't? I keep getting the "run around" that they aren't getting responses from my mortgage company's attorney to resolve. The paralegal claims to not receive information from my potential mortgage company, yet he has sent her what she has asked for 2-3 times via email. Seems unreasonable to me...is there a lack of communication at the other end too? Not just with me? FHA will not grant me a refinance with a caivrs report on my record. Chase tells me they did not file this with FHA...so who did? Isn't it my attorney's responsibility to resolve this reporting? I was told by the trustee it is!
I have now been assigned to another paralegal in their firm, and still no response to my last email. This process has been long, exhausting, but most of all disappointing.
I was charged for this bankruptcy service (I feel higher than normal) to trust them to do their part and yet, can't get any communication from this firm. The next step? File a complaint with the bar

MJC Law Offices assisted us with the paperwork and process for filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy. While there are many attorney's in this area of law, I do not think you can find a more dedicated, committed, and transparent attorney than Mari Jo Clark and her law team. Our case required a great deal of time and effort on Mari Jo's part and her constant attention. While we knew we were one of many clients and a VERY difficult case, Mari Jo never made us feel as if our case was a burden. Mari Jo's communication and availability was astounding and her team responded to our questions quickly, efficiently, and thoroughly. She fought for our case on numerous occasions and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needed an honest, committed, and trustworthy attorney who was knowledgeable in this area of law.

Mari Jo was highly qualified to handle my legal case. From her background and professional history, I learned that she ran the chapter 13 division for a high powered Chicago law firm. She has mentored several attorneys and has a high reputation among her peers. I would gladly recommend her to all of my friends.

Absolutely hands down if you are considering getting an attorney, she is the person for the job. From start to finish, she made things easy. Always there to answer any and all questions. You will be making a mistake going any where else. I had representation every step of the way in and out of court.
