James Michel has been an excellent attorney throughout my Chapter 13 filing. Without his attention to detail and always looking out for my interests, I would not have been able to afford to modify my mortgage and keep my home. He was instrumental in getting me a $32,000 credit card debt removed from the bankruptcy plan, thereby enabling me to be able to afford my new mortgage payment. He is now working with me to help me modify my second mortgage as well. His specialized knowledge with regards to debt buyers and claims by creditors based on purchased debt gives him the ability to potentially reduce the amounts that need to be repaid. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a confident, experienced attorney.
When I phoned Mr. Michel, it turned out that my problem involves a number of issues that place
it outside his area of practice. Nevertheless, he patiently spent more than half an hour, without
charge, offering me advice on the issues he is knowledgeable about, helping to clarify my
problem for me. Of course, I am not posting this to encourage anyone to impose on Mr.
Michel's good nature and knowledgeability, but to attest to them.
I spoke to Mr. Michel in April of 2014. He was kind and patient enough to listen to my unique situation, and give me some free advice on the phone. Very human and respectful man. Very refreshing after talking to other attorneys who have hung up on me.
When I hired James, I had a barrage of lidigation against me in State Court, I had an adverse lawyer hounding me with calls and letters, I even had a Judge who I thought was prejiduce against me, My cituation was bleak, the lawyers that I consulted where uncertain and hesitant, lacked the confidence and experience, my case was not easy, to say the least.....Until I met James, he explained to me, that my case was certainly doable in a chapter 13 scenario, he showed mastery of the law and confidence in his ability, and most important he made me feel there was hope and things would get better, and they did! I am gland I hired james and recommend him highly to anyone with debt issues! hiring James was the best thing I ever did!
Has helped me in several disparate legal matters - monetary based situations. Was always quick to return calls and communication was excellent. He was able to resolve and/or settle these matters to my complete satisfaction.
Atty. James Michel is what you can ask for to help you in your needs. We pick him on line as our Attorney and we are blessed to have chosen him. Not only being knowledgeable, kept us well informed with this difficult process but very honest and trustworthy. We felt his sincerity in helping us.
We definitely love him coming to our home every single time he needs the necessary documents, explained things and have us sign it too. Being a young, good looking, funny and easy to talk to, he made this bankruptcy process not difficult at all.
Thank you James for you help.
