Honest and professional
I met Mr. Wong and also spoke with Mrs. Forghany over the phone. They guide me so great through all my concerns and I was done with my case less than four days and got filed for the court. They are always helpful and they always available to talk or to meet . I was very worry about my case and the first time I met Mr. Wong he explained to me the entire process and also if it is approved or not . Mrs. Forghany also explained to me the entire process for the court and how it will be at the court . I want to thank you for being so professional, honest and friendly. I also want to say thank you for the help of the office , they are very professional and friendly.

I was really nervous and embarrassed to have to file bankruptcy but Forghany Law office made me feel that my current situation was ok and that sometimes life happens and they would help me through it. And they did. From payment arrangements to collecting my paperwork. I would recommend this office to anyone who needs help. Thank you for everything!

The most satisfied customer ever!
This is an appreciation email for all of the folks who work at Forghany Law, at all locations. the only favor that I ask is that you share this with as many of your clients as possible, you have my full permission to share it as well as to use my name. Also I would appreciate it if you would share this via email to all of the workers at forghany Law.please also include my email in case anybody would like to write me back. The rest is all in the paragraphs below I just wanted to say that both of you very kind, bright, and educated ladies have done nothing but helped me through my bankruptcy. I apologize if I say anything that offends you I don't know if this is too much information or not, but I struggle with Asperger's as well as ADHD and I find it very very hard to comprehend things. You guys have always been there for me you guys have always explained things to me so that I fully understand everything. Lafe was an absolute blessing, he picked up my calls just as Linette did whenever I needed help with my case or help to understand something. I could really tell that you guys weren't just taking my money and saying "okay we're going to do the minimal amount of work and not help this guy," you folks really put in time effort energy to give me the best experience ever. it is completely my fault that I am in the position of having to file for bankruptcy when I was young as in 18, haha, I begged my grandmother to co-sign for a car for me and one car turned into two to turned into 3 and on top of that she co-signed for personal loans as well as credit cards for me. that was the biggest mistake that I ever made, but I would have never met the wonderful team at Forghany Law that gave me emotional and mental support through my chapter 7 bankruptcy. Fast forward to 2020, I receive in the mail a statement telling me that a past creditor (that I forgot to add) wants to file a judgement against me. The day I received the judgement from the court I emailed Linette and immediately she started to explain to me what needed to be done. She is such a help to me, people really don't understand. We live in a world where people are out to harm and deceit others. Well, not at Forghany Law. I just wanted to express my appreciation to everybody at the firm, by letting all of you know that you have touched my heart in ways that nobody else has. Not a lot of people understand me and I spend a lot of time alone and especially now with covid-19 on The rise I am spending a lot of time at home alone. I am depressed, I am anxious, but it seems like every time I have a question about reopening my bankruptcy and adding on this creditor that I stupidly missed, the team at Forghany Law is always there to help me. I am not writing this to make you guys look good I am writing this because that's how I feel. I apologize that it is so long-winded but I had to write out my feelings some way. I hope every single person who works for Forghany Law has a prosperous, happy, healthy and enjoyable life just as I'm sure you wish me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and please share my story with your current clients I am very open to inform people about how great you guys are. Please keep being great and helping out the citizens of Massachusetts and Connecticut. Again a honest, truthful and heartfelt thank you from me.I am busy today but I will make it a direct point to write a really great review about my experience in as many places that I can online Thanks, you guys made me feel like I was worth something to someone PS. I do apologize for the extremely lengthy email but I forgot to mention somebody very special, Ms. Lamya Forghany. This very special woman has spoken up for me in the face of a court and explained why I would like to file for bankruptcy as well as answered every and any question that the court had. On May 16th, 2020 which was a Saturday I emailed Ms. Lamya Forghany, and she responded. I emailed her in the evening and she called me

I was terrified to go through the process I needed to go through. First person I spoke to calmed my nerves and I chose this law firm to continue. I'm so glad I did! These people are the best, they make you feel comfortable and walk you step by step. They follow up with you and are really with you through it all. Highly recommend! Will definitely use them again if I ever need a lawyer!

happy client
Lamya A Forghany was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was she able to defend us from an unjust accusation, her calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. My children and I are eternally grateful for her service and I hereby recommend Ms. Lamya A without reservation.

good law
I hired Joe Wong to help out with a pretty scary issue where my family was being sued because of something that wasn’t our fault. I was worried we would lose everything but Joe got us sorted out after just a couple of meetings. I wish she had been cheaper and that this all never happened. But Claire made us feel a lot better while she worked. I’d hire her again.

Excellent Law
Joe Wong has provided legal advice and guidance during a difficult situation. I found him to be experienced, responsive, knowledgable and honest. While working with joe, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands, and he did not steer me wrong. I would highly recommend joe to anyone seeking legal representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront. Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to seek representation from Joe Wong again. Thanks Forghany Law P.C.

Great Law
I would like to thank Forghany Law and her staff in handling my first time home buying experience with her law firm. Her and her staff were very polite and very professional. She even took the time to explain to me page by page about some documents I received from the seller, which by the way it was on her spare time to answer all of my concerns about those documents. She responded on every email and text that I had questions and concerns and I got answers. The closing went smoothly and on point with all of the documents that had to be signed. Jason made herself accessible and told me if I have any other closing related issues pertaining any documents to give her a call. Thank you once again on doing a great job and don't forget Ryan for your big help. I would highly recommend Forghany Law and her firm.

So grateful
I have been scared for years of my debt and what to do about it. Met with Lamya and she calmly and easily explained how I could get out of it with a timeframe and all the details. I am so grateful for the changes she has been able to help me with and the amount of support she has provided.

Professional and caring
Attorney Forghany is unlike any attorney I have worked with in the past. She cares about her clients and will fight for them. She understands what it means to go the distance with a client. She truly will help you, guide you and make sure that you understand everything that is going on with your legal battle. She is someone who will stand beside you. She has helped me tremendously and I sincerely thank her for everything.
