Attorney Waterstradt was extremely helpful with my BK case. I was very apprehensive and she helped walk me through my concerns. Anytime I had a questions she responded quickly. I would highly recommend Attorney Waterstradt to anyone considering hiring her.
I was referred to Ms. Marianne Waterstradt by an attorney who knows her professionally. She came highly recommended, and in short order I could see why. I was dealing with a surprise wrongful termination from my job of 15 years and did not know what to do, before being referred to Marianne I must have spoken to more than 6 other attorneys and non made me feel at ease. My confidence in humanity was recharged after talking with Ms. Waterstradt. She was the only one who understood my unique problems and allegations. After a detailed non rushed interview she saw the strength of my case. Bottom-line, she secured for me a better than expected settlement and my family and I can breath easy. If you hire Ms. Marianne Waterstradt, you are making a better than good decision. I wholeheartedly endorse her, she is an attorney you can truly call a “friend".
My husband and I found ourselves in the position of having to file for Bankruptcy. We had a nightmare with a mortgage company who refused to take a mortgage off our credit report despite having the home lost to foreclosure. Although our case was complicated, Ms. Waterstradt was through and walked us through the process. She was always available to address our concerns and answer our questions. She quickly prepared our Petition and our Bankruptcy was discharged in three months. No one plans on filing for Bankruptcy but it happens to the best of us and having an attorney who not only knowledgeable and attentive but also sensitive and kind makes the process bearable. I would recommend Ms. Waterstradt to anyone who has any questions about Bankruptcy. She has a heart of gold and the experience to seamlessly walk you through the Bankruptcy process.
I have known many attorneys in my life and have had to use them on occasion for a variety of situations. I have NEVER met an attorney who is as caring, compassionate and personable as Marianne. Filing bankruptcy is personal, embarrassing, and crushing to one's soul. It is accompanied by and unprecedented vulnerability and worthlessness.
In addition to being a knowledgeable and professional attorney, Marianne brings compassion, understanding and empathy to the equation and makes an unbearable process bearable. Her approach helps alleviate the social stigma associated with filing bankruptcy and she explains the process in detail. I've never known an attorney to care as much and take such personal interest in clients as much as Marianne has exhibited.....definitely not your Dad's attorney!
I needed an attorney who could help my family with estate planning. I wanted an attorney who could be sensitive to our specific needs and who would have the patience to make us understand all of the legalities we needed to know. I didn't know there was so much work involved in writing a will properly so as not to get the courts involved at the end. When my mother passed away we were able to handle the reading of the will as well as handle the estate per my mothers wishes with out the courts help.
Mrs. Waterstradt made what would have been a very difficult process incredibly simple. I am very grateful for all she has done for our family. Thank You Marianne
Marianne Waterstradt is simply OUTSTANDING both as an attorney and as a person. She advised me on a contract negotiation that came out better than I hoped. She also worked me through the ins and outs of forming an LLC; drafted my documents; instructed me how to get them filed properly and what the LLC would do to protect me and my business. I enjoyed her level of professionalism and the fact that she kept me informed at all times of the progress of her work. I would HIGHLY recommend her for your legal needs. If I ever need legal representation or advice in the future she will be the only attorney reach out to.
While we were discussing my BK options, Marianne protected me by informing me of what I can and can't do with my current money. She made me feel safe when she called the creditors for me to stop the harassment. I was so ashamed to have to file a bankruptcy but Marianne sympathized with me and gave me faith in some attorneys.
I was referred to Marianne by a business associate to handle my bankruptcy filling. I proceeded to wait for over 1 year to file in order to proceed with my filing as per her recommendation. My BK involved the IRS and FTB whom have strict requirements when filing a chapter 7. Marianne advised me of the requirements and provided me with a date to file my BK. We proceeded to file and I Thought everything was taken care of until 4 weeks before my marriage. I received IRS & FTB lien releases with the exception of the releases from the tax debt that I had waited over a year to include in my filing. I was informed by the IRS & FTB that I had filed 2 weeks early for the FTB and 6 months early for the IRS. I called Marianne and she broke down in tears and told me that she would do everything in her power to make this right for was clearly negligence by her. A week or so went by and she informed me that she did not realize that her Mal-Practice insurance had lapsed and that we could not submit a claim with them. At that point I proceeded to consult with a friend whom is an attorney in order to find out my options. I told him that I did not want to proceed with any suit until Marianne had an opportunity to make things right. 1 week before my Honeymoon I received a letter in the mail from the BK courts informing me that Marianne included me for her personal BK filing. To date I have heard nothing from her.
Marianne Waterstradt, Esq. not only is very professional but personable as well. She has a big heart and made us feel very comfortable as we were going through the bankruptcy process. She always kept us well informed and had an open door policy to where we felt comfortable to contact her if we had any questions. Our bankruptcy was discharged in Jan 2011 and she still is there for any questions we have had after it. I have already recommended her to my family and friends and will continue to do so into the future. Thank you Marianne and King Waterstradt Attorneys At Law.
Marianne examined and researched my case with great detail and reported back to me with all my legal options. She was concise and to the point with her advice not lacking integrity, compassion, or work ethic. Being very demanding in nature, of all the attorneys I have worked with in the past Marianne EARNED my respect which is a difficult thing to do. I would be happy to speak personally with anyone considering working with Marianne.
