Helped Me With Debt Problems
I went to Attorney Deming with some debt issues. I had received a letter from some debt collector attorney's and felt it best to obtain legal advice. Never used an attorney before, and Attorney Deming was very kind and non-judgemental. Truly helped me out of a pretty dire situation. I would highly recommend Attorney Deming with any debt related issues.

Chapter 12 Representation
Atty Deming helped me file a successful Chapter 12 plan, a feat that five other attorneys said could not be done, as I was advised to liquidate under Chapter 7 and be grateful. After three confirmation hearings in ten months, the plan was approved without objections from any creditors. Leonard Deming saved my life.

Excellent Representation
As you are reading this review you are likely considering bankruptcy protection. It was nearly 1-year ago from this writing that I found myself doing the same. And the stress of enduring the financial circumstances which had lead me to that point was worsened by the realization of how little I knew about Bankruptcy (and those offering representation). Exactly why I chose Leonard Deming from the vast field of available attorneys honestly escapes me at this writing, but with equal honesty I can state it turned out to be a great decision. Count on Mr. Deming and his staff to be straight-forward yet courteous, highly knowledgeable on the legalities yet easy to understand. They sweat the details, are patient with questions and remain easily accessible. My experience was excellent, as was my outcome.

Excellence, discretion, kindness
My experience with Len and team was extremely positive. He handled our affairs - sensitive matters for anyone - with the utmost discretion, professionalism, diligence, patience, and care. He knows the law - and the law community - extremely well. Throughout the engagement, he patiently and effectively explained our options and ramifications, keeping us informed and educated throughout the process. Most importantly, he brought a sense of humanity and decency to a process that can be overwhelming, emotionally trying, and demoralizing. My experience with Len Deming was second-to-none. If you find yourself in need of an advocate, I cannot recommend him highly enough. I have, and will continue to, recommend him to others without reservation.

Not recommended
My husband worked with him for roughly 8 months - not doing much at all the first 7 months - we come for a meeting nearing the bankruptcy and he states he has no good news basically you can file however you’ll owe the lawyer/trustee 1500 a month for the next 5 years on top of your mortgage! Now this is something that should have been stated months ago not 8 months in - We clearly opted out of the unrealistic option & thankfully our mortgage company worked with us to keep our house. So with that being said we ask kindly for our deposit back, since clearly he didn’t do much to help till the last month or so - my husband gave him around 4,300 he give him back around 2,089 - RIP OFF!! Then has the nerve to say well if u ever want to consolidate your bills come back and I’ll cut you a deal!! Thanks but NO thanks....Good luck if you choose him!

Response from Leonard Deming December 7, 2018
I was very chagrined at reading this. We pride ourselves on empathy and doing the very best for our clients. Hence, it is not unusual for clients to send us thank you cards, chocolates, gifts, etc. for what we do. This is the worst feedback, let alone review, that I have ever received. I immediately reached out to the clients learn what we did wrong and to try to make it right. I will not disclose confidences, of course, but this was a challenging case in which we hoped to make a difference. Unfortunately, it did not work out. But we are doing our best to reconcile with these fine people and to come to a mutual understanding. And we think we may have succeeded in doing that.
