It is with such great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Virginia E. Fortunato, affectionately known as Ginny.
When I first embarked on the search for someone to help me resolve my financial distress, I knew the undertaking would be complex and quite daunting. I also knew there would be many obstacles to overcome.
I truly believe that, without Ginny's fortitude and impressive knowledge of her field, I would not have achieved the smooth outcome that ensued.
Ginny is the consummate professional. I am so appreciative of her innate abilities of listening, tireless problem-solving, and ever-positive attitude. She understood my individual predicament, clearly explained all issues and kept me involved as each step moved forward. I was always treated like I was her only client.
Over the many years she has been doing this, Ginny has developed wonderful contacts and working relations with other professionals in connected fields. She avails her cases with their expertise and knowledge to provide the optimal results for her clients.
Ginny is an outstanding bankruptcy attorney who rises head and shoulders above the rest in her profession.
I am grateful to her and amazed at the positive impact she achieves on a daily basis.
Ginny truly is a blessing and you'd be most fortunate to have her as your champion!
My particular case had its share of craziness. Anyone else would have thrown in the towel long ago.
So take a deep breath and relax. You are in great hands!

Ginny is as good as it gets when it comes to bankruptcy law in the State of New Jersey. She is well known by her colleagues and the court for her zealous representation, professionalism and expertise in the area of bankruptcy law. I have referred many people to her over the years and they have all praised her compassion, attention to detail and understanding of complex bankruptcy matters. Ginny's knowledge in the areas of foreclosure and mortgage modification make her an invaluable asset to her clients. I highly recommend Ginny to anyone facing the difficult decision to file for bankrputcy.
