I bought a used Jeep from a local dealer. I was naïve and somehow overlooked that with my trade-in I would still be paying $40K for a $17K Jeep. Two years into the payment plan I tried to refinance for a lower payment, but the finance company would not work with me; the Jeep was repossessed after only one missed payment. At this point the finance company informed me that I owed $20K after I had already paid $18K. They sold the Jeep for $12K. My account was turned over to collections. My wife began to receive harassing phone calls at work from the collection agency. The agency claims to have served us with papers, but we never received them. Because we were never served, we had no idea there was a complaint filed. The agency was able to get a default judgment and eventually our wages were garnished. We contacted Tonie and she immediately went to work to stop the garnishment. Ultimately she was not only able to negotiate the debt for pennies on the dollar, but also had the adverse reporting removed from my credit report. I highly recommend Tonie!!
I've known Tonie for the past 3 years. She has been a great asset to many clients that are in difficult situations. Her genuine care for her clients as well as her profession show through time and again. People recognize someone with integrity and trust from the beginning, and many of my clients have reported this same confidence working with Toni that I have experienced myself.
I was recently involved in a bait and switch scheme with a moving company. Ms. Davis heard my case and was instantly supportive and willing to help. I've never had a very favorable impression of lawyers in the past but she most definitely has convinced me there are compassionate, caring, trustworthy and competent individuals in the field. The case was found in my favor and I am thrilled with the outcome. I highly recommend her.
My wife and I had to file for bankruptcy and we were completely lost. We asked so many questions and relied so completely on her advise. We are so very grateful for her knowledge and calming presence.
Tonie and her paralegal Travis were extremely compassionate and helpful to me with my bankruptcy case. She listened attentively to my story, legal issues, and needs. My wages were being garnished for extraordinary medical debt I had incurred due to cancer treatment and I couldn't pay my rent. My daughter and I were facing homelessness. Within a couple of days, Tonie took on my case and put and end to the garnishment so I could pay my rent and keep our housing. I am forever grateful to her.
Tonie and Travis quickly took the necessary steps to resolve my time-sensitive issue, and clearly communicated each step along the way. Whenever I had a question about the legal process, she or Travis responded promptly and explained things even further to me.
Filing a legal action and having to appear in court can be an intimidating and scary process. My confidence in Tonie, and her preparation, warmth and humor helped ease the process tremendously. I highly recommend hiring Tonie for your legal needs! You will be very pleased.
My husband and I interviewed several lawyers when we were trying to figure out what to do with our debt problems. One attorney from a big fancy firm wouldn't even meet us face to face until we signed a contract - we had to meet with his assistant (who turned out to be little more than a salesman.) Another attorney I met with struck me as cold, unprofessional, and not well-versed in the details of bankruptcy law.
When we finished our interview with Tonie, we both knew she was the lawyer we wanted to work with. We came into her office feeling stressed and overwhelmed with debt. Tonie immediately made us feel at ease. She gave us options and helped us make a rational decision that was the best for our financial well-being. Throughout the process, we've appreciated her warmth, humor, compassion and her extensive knowledge of the bankruptcy system. We've already referred several people to her and will continue to do so.
Antoinette represented me a few years ago in an employment matter. When I found myself drowning in debt, due to being unemployed for a year and a half, I had no clue what to do. As I was facing unaffordable garnishment, I frantically called Antoinette. As I expected, from her previously representing me, she immediately went to action. She made an extremely embarassing situation, seem not so horrible. Antoinette has a way of putting you at ease. She explained all if my options thoroughly. When I came to the hard decision of filing Chapter 7, she went straight to action. She was responsive to all of my questions, and
prepared me well for every step of the process.
I am so thankful for her expertise, honesty and professionalism. Antoinette has a way of putting you immediately at ease with her genuinely warm personality.
I highly recommend her!
As a dealer for classic cars, located in Germany, we purchased a vehicle from a dealer in Seattle. Although the car had been paid in full the seller refused to release the vehicle. The managing director had walked off with all available funds including our payment. The vehicle had been on consignment and they were not able to pay the owner in order to transfer the car to us. They just had started to liquidate the company.
It's not easy to engage a lawyer in Seattle when you are located in Germany. You have a lot of talks on the phone with "maybe" and "let me prove if we can take action for you", while time is short.
Antoinette did not hesitate to take on this case even though we only communicated by e-mail and phone. She took action the very same day and paid the seller a visit to find out what was going on. Insistently she followed up with him over a period of 3 weeks and finally made him deliver the vehicle to us. Also she managed the transfer of the car and even stored it safely until our shipper took over. The outcome of this case exceeded all our expectations as we were confident to lose at least a significant part of our payment if not everything.
The other day the car arrived here in Germany. Thanks to Antoinette, Rebecca and Janelle! They always kept me in the loop and patiently explained what was going on and what would be the next step. During the whole process we were absolutely confident that Antoinette was taking any action to obtain the vehicle for us. The result proves her professionalism.
I never met her personally but experienced her as a professional, straight forward person with a fine sense of humor. If you're looking for a lawyer who really gets involved and gets the very best result for you, you just found it!
When I found out I was being garnished for an insurance bill, I literally cried. Upon speaking with Ms. Davis, walking into her ambient office having her walk me through all aspects of bankruptcy I felt assured that I was in good hands. I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable shepherd into the murky waters of legal-ese. I found her candor impressive. She was beyond patient with my pedestrian questions and she was kind. I loved the fact that her forms were far more straightforward than any other legal form I've ever seen!!
If I ever had to file bankruptcy again, I would DEFINITELY request Ms. Davis' assistance. She made a terrifying situation pleasant. Thank you, Antoinette!
I had a client that I referred to Antoinette as they needed to find a solution for a property that had negative equity. The family didn't know where to start. Antoinette offered informed, experienced guidance through the short sale process along with information that gave the clients confidence in the decisions they had to make. I highly recommend her!
