Thank goodness for Ivan and Nancy! I imagine it is difficult for someone in Ivan's line of work, always interacting with clients during such a difficult, depressing and embarrassing time in life. At least that is how I have felt for the past year, but Ivan has helped me through all of it, and I am now on the other side, putting life back together. Ivan makes you feel welcome and understood,not intimidated like some lawyers. I had a complicated case and Ivan just dealt with it 1 issue at a time and my giant mess was put together simply for our trustee to easily manage. There are lots of choices out there for a bankruptcy attorney. If you want an honest, patient, respectful, hardworking, knowledgable, experienced and just a nice guy, go with Ivan. I am eternally grateful for the job he did for me. Thanks Ivan!
Mr. Trahan and his wife Nancy have put our lives back to normal after filing for our Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We were able to get a fresh start Thanks to there expertise. We were referred to them from a friend, that talked very highly from there bankruptcy experience. With the knowledge Ivan and Nancy provided, it made us feel very comfortable. They went way out of there way to assure us that ( what we thought) was the impossible could be done. Our lives have changed for the better because of them. Nancy even went out of her way to bring us dinner after my husband got out of the hospital from surgery!! They are the best! We would highly recommend them.
Mr. Trahan has been nothing but perfect for my difficult case! He had to undo a prior attorney's mess ad perform the impossible...which he did. Highly recommended. Can't get any better with the experience and service.
I felt comfortable with Ivan and his wife, Nancy, the minute i met them. Their experience and knowledge in the field of bankruptcy is extensive. I had a kind of a complicated matter and they had ideas I hadn't heard from the other attorneys I had talked to while i was shopping around. With their help, I was able to get a fresh start by filing a Chapter 7. Two other attorneys had told me that I didn't pass the means test and didn't qualify for Chapter 7. They were wrong. If I had taken their advice, I would have had to pay my creditors and I'd have about four and a half years of Chapter 13 payments ahead of me. I recommend this law firm whenever i get a chance because i know they will take good care of anyone I refer.
My house is worth half of what it used to be and I had a high interest rate second mortgage that I don't have to pay now, thanks to Ivan. He told me he could get rid of the 2nd mortgage through Chapter 13 and that's exactly what he did. I really think it made a difference going to an attorney with so much experience. Ivan spent a lot of time evaluating my case (for free) before I hired him and I felt like he really cared about what happened to me. His wife works with him and I feel like she is more like a friend than anything else. Very funny and encouraging. His staff was helpful and courteous. I don't usually post reviews, but my life has changed so much because of everything they did for me, I decided to share my story.
Ivan is so calm and so experienced and knowledgeable that you immediately feel comfortable placing your financial problems in his hands, which is exactly what my husband and I did when we filed bankruptcy. We liked his staff and his wife, Nancy, was so helpful. She was always available on her cell phone and I don't think a lot of law offices do that. We got rid of our debt and we can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel! My husband and I both give this law firm the thumbs up!!!
Mr. Trahan represented me in my bankruptcy. It was one of the hardest times of my life, but I knew he was the right one. He and his wife, Nancy, helped me in so many ways. They referred me to a place where I could get groceries cheaper and even gave me a ride to my hearing. When I went to my hearing, it was clear that everyone knew him and the trustee respected him. That made it a little easier.
Another thing is he really took the time to explain everything to me in a way that I understood. His calm and reassuring manner helped me handle my own nervous tendencies!
Mr. Trahan is the best.
