Ms. Roher was able to take a very overwhelming and frustrating situation and bring it back down to basics to determine if you have a valid case and what needs to be done in court.

thumbs up
I hired her and she did a wonderful job. I like how she was upfront and told it how it is. She didn't make promises she couldn't keep and didn't set false expectations. Very professional and reliable. I would hire her again and recommend her to family and friends.

Bankruptcy case
Deborah is a very good attorney, my husband and I, had to file bankruptcy to keep our home. Deborah Roher took our case. There where situations that arose and we needed to modify our bankruptcy and Atttorney Roher worked with our lender so we wouldnt lose our home. Deborah is straight to the point and she has gone way beyond our expectations. Attorney Roher had went to court and fought for our home. I would recommend Attorney Deborah Roher to anyone who needs a good Attorney to represent them in a bankruptcy.

Extremely helpful; Highly recommend!!
Deborah was very professional & accommodating with my recent debt settlement case. Initially consulted with her on my possible options with bankruptcy. Her research of my case was very thorough with all documentation. I felt very comfortable hiring Deborah as her legal knowledge and experience is quite extensive. I am very thankful that I found a respected lawyer like her who has the best intentions for the consumer.

Very professional...Great attorney
I'm writing this review because Deborah went above and beyond to win my case ..It's been over a year since she appeared in court for me so I didn't need to miss a day of work ..I just received a letter from her a year later sending me a copy of the docket and a paper to send to the credit agency ...needless to say it's been so long I totally forgot about the case but obviously she didn't !! Thank you very much for what you have done for me and I will be using you in the future if your ever needed !

Bad Debt
Atty Roher did an excellent job for me. I could not be more pleased with her professionalism. I would recommend her to any one with a case involing credit or collection problems.

Extremely dedicated and intelligent
Ms. Roher handled my disability case with skill, charisma, poise, and professionalism. I think she is the only graduate of Yale Law School to be practicing in the Southcoast Region--not that that necessarily implies anything. Nonetheless, she knows her field. She investigated my case with thoroughness and was a dedicated advocate who obtained results.
