Life Saving
I was at a point in my life where my credit card debt had left me crippled financially. I was months behind on my mortgage and in danger of losing my home. When I spoke to Chris, I immediately knew I was in good hands. He wasn’t trying to sell me anything and he wasn’t treating me like another hopeless bankruptcy case – he was taking the time to listen to me. Chris was both empathetic about my situation and honest about my options. I had the immediate impression that this guy was in my corner, ready to advocate for me. When we started the bankruptcy process, my home was already scheduled for a foreclosure auction – while going over the paperwork in his office one night, Chris discovered that the foreclosure auction was scheduled for the very next morning! This came as a shock, as I had thought it was scheduled for the end of the week. Chris immediately approached the problem with the kind of focus and dedication you don’t see in most people – he stayed late to ensure everything was in order and filed an emergency bankruptcy that very night to prevent the sale from occurring. He saved my house and, in many ways, my life. My financial problems had left me desperate, hopeless, and completely overwhelmed. For months I was anxious around my family and friends, completely unable to see that there was light at the end of the tunnel. I couldn’t even see the tunnel. Chris made that all go away – he showed a level of expertise and understanding that is truly rare and was able to pull me out from under the crushing heap of debt that had caused tremendous anxiety and pain in my life. It’s easy to be cynical about lawyers or people who claim to have all the answers and can solve your problems with the snap of a finger. Chris Carreiro is different – while he has the intelligence and legal savvy to navigate the process, this is only highlighted by his sincere desire to help people on the road to a better life. When I found out that he taught law at a local college, I wasn’t surprised. I was also unsurprised by the fact that he serves as a Selectman for the town of Swansea and hosts his own radio show. Indeed, Chris is a tireless advocate for people and does so with care, compassion, and dedication. He possesses these traits in such abundance that I truly believe he was born with them. I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you, Chris, for showing me both the tunnel and the light!

Bankruptcy and loan modification Expert Peoples’ lawyer!
I was facing not only foreclosure but my house was set with an auction date! Due to financial hardship I opened up a heartwarming, but direct and for some reason amongst all letters I received this Attorney’s just gave me such a good gut feeling! After months of receiving advertisements and direct mailings he was the only Lawyer I ever called! Chris wanted to know what I wanted help with and allowed me to explain my situation as well as give me all my options and was always upfront with me! Took his time to make me feel my case was important! Fast forward not only did my bank tell me I would not be auctioned off, they held and sold my house right under my nose! ( I was attempting a loan mod on my own)! Thank God I had Chris on my side! He managed to find fault on my lender and after a few days I was advised my lender revoked the sale! In process of filing a bankruptcy my lender than with the persistence of my Lawyer Chris Carreiro approved me for a loan modification! I avoided not only loosing my home but also no longer had to ruin my credit by filing a bankruptcy! This lawyer always returned my calls and through the whole process with ups and downs never gave me false hopes just honesty! The words “let me handle this”, or “let me handle the rules and regulations part” as he says he knows the law, Chris allowed me to work and take care of my family without added stress of what was a really big mess! The stress he took off my life and situation had me thanking God for sending me a walking angel on Earth! I highly recommend this lawyer and always felt I could talk to him and was being listened to as well! They some can perform miracles and what he did for my family and I was just that! My outcome was outstanding for the ordinary hard working woman who had no one to help fight for justice on many wrong doings from my lender, including the sale at auction of my personal home many false promises to finding Chris who listened, acted, and assisted me from A-Z! I didn’t loose my home or my mind because of him! much respect and gratitude for such an amazing Attorney and also felt like a Gained a life long friendship! He is an amazing professional and person in my opinion! Hats off to u Chris! I could never thank u enough!
