    • I recommend Richard Welt.
    • I hired Richard 1-3 years ago.
    • Richard handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Working in the legal field myself I reached out to several peers and colleagues for a trusted Bankruptcy referral. I considered handling my BK myself but after careful consideration I retained Richard Welt on the recommendation of a trusted attorney friend. I was not disappointed. Richard is INCREDIBLY knowledgeable and with his years of experience he was able to efficiently and quickly wrap up my case. Richard is very responsive, returning phone calls and emails with very little turn around time. Bankruptcy is a very difficult and sensitive issue but Richard handled my case with professionalism and compassion. He also worked hard in negotiating two very favorable redemption agreements, neither of which I could have reached without his help. All in all I would highly recommend Richard Welt … in fact, I already have!!

  2. Richard Welt is a kind man who made me feel better about my chapter 7 case.

    • Richard handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Richard Welt gave me a better impression of lawyers. The word that comes to mind is a real gentleman. He went through my court case and the meetings before I meet the judge. He knows what he's doing when it came to my chapter 7.

    I had the opportunity to work with Richard within the last few years -- he is very responsive to clients, both via email and calls. He is extremely knowledgable and experienced in bankruptcies and foreclosures, and at the same time, very compassionate and easy to talk to -- personable and understanding. He is affordable yet truly knows his stuff. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

    I have worked with Richard professionally for several years. We worked closely on many operational projects and he advised our company on compliance, legal, and bankruptcy issues. Richard's years of experience show. During our time working together, he was a leader, an educator, and trusted by clients, some of which were some of the largest card issuers in the country. I would highly recommend Richard for his knowledge, experience, and overall compassion.

    If you are looking for a bankruptcy lawyer, who is EXTREMELY knowledgeable, able to translate the law in laymen terms, friendly, professional, informative, and trustworthy, Richard is the perfect match. My experience with him has been top notch and I know that anytime I have bankruptcy questions I can go to him for straight and honest answers.
    Recently, I had some general questions about Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13, in relationship to expected inheritance money. Richard got back to me quickly, assessed my situation, gave me the pros/cons of both chapters, and guided me in the right direction to minimize damage to my future financial health. He treated me with respect, was encouraging, and supportive. I would not hesitate to go back to him or refer friends and family.
    All I can say is that you are in good hands and will not be disappointed!
