    • I recommend Raymond Schimmel.
    • I hired Raymond 1-3 years ago.
    • Raymond handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mr. Shimmel was recommended to us by my wifes son who is in Real Estate. This was the first time we had ever filed for bankruptcy and had no idea where to start. When we first contacted Mr. Shimmel he was professional and courteous over the phone. We explained our situation and he understood that we needed help. Our house had just been foreclosed on and we had piles of outstanding debt we could no longer afford. He made us an appointment right away. Don't expect Mr. Shimmels' office to be the executive suite in some high rise building. He's a down to earth guy with a dry sense of humor. He takes care of his business by himself, no secretary or receptionist and no huge ego like so many attorneys have. We found him pleasant and well informed. Our bankruptcy case went through without a hitch, filed in December of 2012 and was discharged in February of 2013. We are now debt free and feel like we have a new life and new hope. We definitely recommend Mr. Shimmel to anyone thinking of bankruptcy and it's not as hard as you think if you have someone like Mr.Shimmel on your side.
    Thanks again Ray. S and D from Julian, CA.

    When I was in trouble Mr. Schimmel took all the time I needed to help. He was courteous and answered my questions without making me fell dumb. The price was reasonable and everything worked out fine for me. I would recommend Ray Schimmel to any friend of mine who has debt problems.

    Raymond Schimmel is an outstanding lawyer. He gave me solid legal advice that saved me thousands of dollars. I referred a friend to him that need assistance, and Raymond provided him outstanding legal support as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone, he is honest, ethical and extremely fair.
