She is very nice person to work with. We have filed and are still waiting for the first meeting of creditors. I have had some concerns and she has helped answer those concerns. My overall rating is based on less than one month, we still are still a little more than 2 months from finalizing. I do feel it will go smooth.
In the Italian language, "consigliere" is the person that will give you a "consiglio", an advice, a course of action. Usually a consigliere is someone close to you and personally, when in need of advise, I tend to reach out to a family member or a close friend. During the ordeal of what a bankruptcy case can be, I always had the feeling of having a friend on my side, from the moment that I chose Lara to represent me. She was recommended to me by a coworker, and from the first meeting I felt completely at ease, confident that behind the "down to hearth" person on the other side of the desk, there was a great deal of knowledge and energy, as well as kindness and compassion. Lara guided me through the all process with great professionalism, and from the beginning to the end I felt like I was following the right path. Every question, doubt and fear was replaced with solid answers, there was not space left for uncertainty or bad surprises and there weren't any! Several months went by after my case was discharged, and the judge granted me a fresh start, a new opportunity. Most importantly, Lara gave me the peace of mind, the certainty that I had made the right decision by choosing a true and kind professional.
Lara helped me to file for bankruptcy. I just went through a divorce and had a bunch of financial troubles because of it. A collection agency was trying to garnish me and Lara helped me to stop it. Lara explained the whole process to me. She always answered my phone calls and was always really nice and her fees were really reasonable. She was the only lawyer who made a payment plan with me so I could get through this. She was a real person and didn't act like I should be ashamed of filing bankruptcy. I really recommend her.
An advocate, someone who will truly be interested in getting you the results you need, not just another fee. I am so thankful that I chose Lara Gardner to represent me in bankruptcy. Perhaps like you, the lowest time of my life was made much easier with the kindness, expertise, and promptness of Lara Gardner. I give her my highest recommendation.
Lara did an excellent job for us in filing a Chapter 13 that later had to be converted to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. She has been very thorough in considering consequences of various options, explaining those options to a lay person and guiding someone in what we think were a set of "right" decisions. Lara responds promptly to calls, texts and emails so that questions a person has aren't hanging out there unanswered. She is also very tenacious in representing clients' interests.
Lara helped my husband and I with a chapter 7 bankruptcy. She was very professional, returned our calls and emails very promptly and was kind. We enjoyed working with her! I am recommending her to my friends.
Lara was very helpful when we needed legal advice regarding a bankruptcy. She was prompt each time we called to return our calls and was very knowledgeable on all of the questions we asked. Lara is very confident in what she does and compassionate about the needs of others. She made our experience much less stressful than I expected and was very respectful towards us regardless of the situation we were dealing with. I would highly recommend her and appreciated her help in every way.
Lara was easy to work with and explained everything we needed to know. She was easy to communicate with through email or by phone or in person and always prompt to answer questions. She made the process easy and never made us feel inferior for having to declare bankruptcy.
After meeting with a handful of lawyers to discuss filing for bankruptcy who really didn't seem to care about my personal situation, I found Lara Gardner. From the first initial talk on the phone to the in-person meeting she was friendly, compassionate and honest with me on all my options. She answered all my questions and never once made me feel like a piece of trash like other attorneys I spoke with prior. After having Lara handle my Chapter 7 bankruptcy I can honestly say she has a wealth of knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend her if you are considering filing for bankruptcy.
Lara has been a huge help for our family. One three different occasions Lara we have gone to Lara for legal help and each time she saved the day by giving us all the information we needed to solve our problems. She is efficient, trustworthy, knowledgable, and highly personable. She litterally saved us a fortune. We have referred other family members to Ms.Gardner and they have also been similarly happy with her work.
