Incredible service delivered in a warm, caring environment
Attorney Pletter managed to make one of the most stressful situations in my life much easier to go through. His expertise in the field shined through when my case proved to be much more challenging than anticipated. He stayed in contact routinely to make sure everything would go smoothly and his kind words were much appreciated.

The best lawyer I have ever had!
The best lawyer I have ever had. He is very knowledgeable in his field, dedicated and professional. He went in depth into the case with me as it’s his. He gave honest and realistic outcome probabilities which were very accurate. Punctual, meticulous and perfectionist. He understood my busy schedule, went the extra-mile and was working with me even in the weekends. He answered all my questions quickly and submitted my application in a timely manner. Highly recommended to everyone. Grateful for him and his amazing job.

Well above and beyond expectations. A blessing.
Timothy Pletter is masterful. My bankruptcy case had issues and potential pitfalls that Tim navigated me through in an ethical, thoughtful, considerate, realistic, wise and ultimately successful manner. I can be an over-thinker, and Tim was compassionate and patient; going beyond being simply a quintessential professional. I still feel the urge to stop by and say "thanks" in person- perhaps when without a mask, I can reveal the smile on my face that exists largely due to Tim's efforts. I cannot recommend his firm highly enough! As a thoughtful, caring and meticulous professional myself, I hope this is of value to others seeking "the right attorney".

One of the best
Tim and his office staff are nothing short of 5 starts. I am afraid our outcome could and likely would have been much different without them. Tim was very professional, courtesy and follow up with us constantly. They are just top notch. The office staff was punctual, responsive and very professional. They became almost like family to us during the time spent from the very beginning to the very end. In any environment attention to detail, follow up and dedication is always needed for success. Tim and his firm have all of this. I highly recommend him for any personal matters. - Brian S

Outstanding law firm!
Outstanding law firm! Office full of beautiful people inside and out. I highly recommend! Tim I remember feeling beyond frustrated confused and overwhelmed about how to handle my financial situation. While dealing with a child in and out of the hospital due to a severe brain injury. Thank you for being so straight forward and professional. You and your staff have shown to be very caring and attentive, both before and after the bankruptcy process. I told you once before I believe I came across your firm by the grace of The Lord and I meant that. Though you just gave me that handsome smile of yours and just shook your head. That is because you are very good at what you do and at times our jobs can become repetitious However; you need to know that when you help people in or heading towards socioeconomic deprivation you are more than just an attorney. Money has tremendous power over us as individuals and when there is a lack thereof it can block the road of our journey. You help to Clear those roads or just build another entirely. We are all set in position in life to help people in one form or another. That being said thank you for clearing that financial road for me, so now I can start my new journey. Many thanks, blessing and continue success to you and your staff. Forever Grateful, TF, Bridgeport

Look no further, Attorney Pletter is top notch.
Attorney Pletter has handled two cases of mine, one for my husband (Coincidently prior to us dating) and two close friends of mine. I came on the site to research a regulation. To my surprise I came across Attorney Pletters response to an inquiry. Seeing I had never completed a review for him I was compelled to do so in hopes to provide individuals seeking legal counsel with my candid opinion plus others I know experience who he represented. From the first moment I spoke to him I felt comfortable and a sense of relief. He was kind, professional, extremely knowledgeable, calm and exhibited a empathetic demeanor. Tim offered emotional succor, provided top notch legal advice and guidance during a difficult situation. He customizes his work method based on his clients needs so if you want a straight, no fluff representative Tim will provide you with it however if you require a little extra care (your hand held per say) he is more than willing to adapt to fit your needs. That being said he is always on top of the game, never misses a deadline and even better ensured I didn't procastinating providing the office with what I needed to. He is honorable and knowledgeable. He is well respected in the community and has earned this respect due to his values and commitment to his vocation. After my 1st case was closed (in my favor) I found the above was no longer just my opinion of his character its factual. Tim proved to be experienced, responsive, knowledgable and honest. If you hire Tim you can assure your situation will be in the hands of a talented, trustworthy attorney and you will be steered in the right direction. Based on my review you can see I was very pleased I choose Attorney Pletter out of all the other attorneys I met with across CT. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone seeking legal representation. If you are looking for someone that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront thats Attorney Pletter. Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to contact Attorney Pletter to take my case and have recommended him to anyone looking for an attorney for close to two decades.

Recommendation
When I first consulted with Attorney Pletter, I knew immediately he would provide me with the best guidance and expertise. Supported by his polite and professional team, he helped make a difficult situation as painless as possible. He always responded to my questions and concerns in a timely manner and took the time to find the best solutions for me and my family. I had complete trust in his ability to navigate me through the process and felt completely at ease knowing he was the one representing me. I can’t thank Tim and his capable team enough for helping me at a most difficult period in my life. I would without a doubt strongly recommend Attorney Pletter.

Highly professional, dedicated, and caring attorney
I engaged Tim as my attorney for multiple personal financial matters also involving real estate. He handled all legal matters professionally, always discussed all viable options along with his recommended approach, and was very caring during difficult steps of the process. Not only did he represent me well during the proceedings and for all engaged services, but Tim showed his commitment to his clients as he helped me work through challenging real estate negotiation above and beyond the scope of our engagement. I would highly recommend anyone going through difficult financial times to reach out to Tim for his support getting through the process and his guidance making the right choices.

Satisfied Client
It was a pleasure working with Attorney Timother Pletter. It was a difficult decision even considering bankruptcy. Under the unfortunate circumstances I unexpectedly faced, it was evident that was my best option. From the initial consultation, Timothy was always professional, resourceful, and efficient. He answered any questions I had and replied promptly as well as his secretaries. Everyone was pleasant and easy to work with. They remained so until the final steps of the process. It's difficult to find the right attorney to represent you, whom you feel comfortable with in knowing they're doing what the absolute best is for you. I was more than happy with hiring him and pleased with everything he did for me. I'd highly recommend Attorney Pletter and would undoubtedly use him again if ever need be!

The Best
Attorney Pletter has to be one of the best bankruptcy Attorneys in Connecticut. I met him just by researching on the internet and beyond my expectation was so sincere, honest and very knowledgeable. I was going through a new phase in my life and needed some guidance and adjustment and he lead me in the right direction and was very honest and discreet. He made this painful process less stressful for me. I cannot thank him and his staff enough.

Top Notch Attorney
I consulted and subsequently hired Timothy Pletter to handle a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. As a single Mother without the benefit of the support of an extended family, I found Tim’s kind, empathetic demeanor to be invaluable in my case. It was such a difficult time for me which he made so much easier. He is an extremely professional, experienced, attorney. I would not hesitate to recommend this man to anyone in need of sage advice and legal representation in a bankruptcy filing.

Tim got us through the most difficult decision of our lives!
It was a delight and pleasure working with Timothy Pletter during one of the most difficult times in our lives. My wife and I found ourselves against the wall with our bills and felt we needed professional help and a better understanding of what to do base on our financial situation and struggles. This prompted us to seek professional help and advice. It was a breath of fresh air working with Tim, as he counseled and advised us of the realities of bankruptcy and the best approach to resolving our situation. The experience wasn’t as painful as one could imagine, and with his guidance and hard work from our side; we survived through it all with 100% satisfaction and the relief of knowing that we can now move forward. Thanks to the help and support from the Ambrogio, Pletter & Associates; we are now in a better place and can breathe a lot easier as we rebuild for a better tomorrow…
