Dr
I had the privilege of working with Mr. Warren Brumel and his exceptional staff, especially Mrs. Jaci, during a challenging time in my life. From the moment I walked into their office, I was met with professionalism, empathy, and a genuine commitment to helping me navigate the complexities of bankruptcy. Mr. Brumel's expertise in bankruptcy law is truly impressive. He took the time to explain the entire process, ensuring that I understood all my options and their potential outcomes. His knowledge and guidance gave me confidence and peace of mind during a difficult period. Mrs. Jaci, as a member of Mr. Brumel's team, deserves special recognition. Her attention to detail, responsiveness, and compassion were invaluable throughout the process. She was always there to answer my questions, provide updates, and offer support when I needed it most. Together, Mr. Warren Brumel and Mrs. Jaci made a challenging and stressful experience as smooth as possible. They demonstrated not only legal expertise but also genuine care for their clients. I highly recommend Mr. Brumel and his exceptional team to anyone seeking top-notch bankruptcy representation. They truly are a class act, and I am immensely grateful for their assistance

The BEST
The thought of Chapter 13 was terrifying to me, as I’m sure it is to most people. Mr. Brumel is very knowledgeable, professional and caring, and made me feel completely comfortable throughout the whole process. He and his staff are true professionals…I’m so grateful to have had them by my side during this stressful time.

Multi year stress came to end-Warren is a cut way above the rest!
We hired Warren in January 2023 after being referred and our Chap 13 case was concluded in May 2023. He is not any other attorney. Our case was resolved above and beyond our expectations. From day one he listened and was not judgmental after we told him our story that had compounded between high and crippling interest rates, medical bills, Covid layoffs, and more, over the course of several years. He and his staff were super responsive, and we often received replies to questions within hours or less-even on weekends. He is very genuine, and friendly, injects kindness and humor and treated us like a couple, and not just a case number, which, given the highly emotional stakes was appreciated as it lowered our stress level significantly when it really mattered. He and his staff made themselves available via email, text, Zoom etc, which made our meetings and interactions very flexible given our long commutes, family life and work schedules. He explained each step of our case thoroughly and followed up promptly if info was needed which was helpful as we managed the amount of info we needed to provide over the course of 4 months. He was very honest in setting expectations and we appreciated this as we had never been through this process together before. We have had to consult with attorneys in the past for other matters, and Warren is a cut way, way above the rest. His 42+ years of experience are crystal clear and we would highly recommend him to friends and family in a heartbeat. Do not hesitate in contacting him about your situation. Thank you again to Warren and his staff for giving us our lives back, working diligently on our case, and showing genuine empathy, significant expertise and humor during an exceptionally difficult time for our family.

Best in Business
I filed for chapter 13 and hired Mr Brumel. Hands down he is the best. I consulted few attorneys before Mr Brumel but Mr Brumel explained everything and made is so easy for me. Whenever I had any questions he responded to my phone or emails right away . If any one looking for bankruptcy attorney I would recommend Mr Brumel you won’t regret it one bit. Thank you so much Mr Brumel for everything.

Cost effective
Warren was patient, kind and everything was explained to me every step of the way. During the hearing, the hearing examiner said some things about my bankruptcy that i didn’t understand and that worried me. Warren called me immediately afterwards and set my mind at ease. He is also extremely cost effective when compared to other attorneys. Highly recommend!

Most Highly Recommended!
Warren was extremely helpful and instrumental in helping me clear up some old bankruptcy issues which my attorney at the time failed to properly handle. I do wish I was introduced to Warren back then as his knowledge and expertise would have certainly saved me a lot of money, time, and stress. His friendliness, warmth, and sense of humor will undoubtedly help ease the stress and angst of any bankruptcy proceeding.

Dignity Matters.
Having to file bankruptcy was one of the worst times of my life. I was embarrassed and ashamed despite being able to attribute much of debt to hurricane Sandy. From the day we met Warren he treated us with dignity and guided us through the process. He was unequivocally on our side and never let us feel like we had failed. It can be extremely overwhelming at times and Warren was always available to answer our questions and make us feel completely comfortable. Working with Warren through one of the hardest times of our life was truly a blessing. He actually really cares about his clients and their futures. I can’t say it enough, his character and compassion are truly a rare find in this day and age and we are so very lucky to have been able to work with him.

The most fun you could possibly have when filing for bankruptcy
While filling for bankruptcy is by no means a fun experience, Warren Brumel made it as painless as possible. From the initial consultation all the way through to the discharge, Warren was a pleasure to work with. Instructions and expectations were clear and the final result of a discharged bankruptcy, and removal of a tax warrant was achieved. I recommend Warren Brumel as your bankruptcy lawyer.

An excellent choice
No one wants to go through bankruptcy, however if it’s your only choice I’d want Warren Brumel as my attorney. He and his staff will go through every detail of your case and guide you through the intricacies of the system. You will be well prepared and follow all the rules for a smooth process. Warren is professional, honest and concise. His instructions are clear and accurate. He is well versed in his profession and his experience is vast. We are so happy that we chose him. You will be too.

More than just an attorney, Mr. Brumel is your partner and ally!
There are not enough adjectives to describe just how wonderful Mr. Brumel and his staff are. The road to financial recovery through Chapter 13 is, in my opinion, unpaved, uneven and lengthy. You could likely hire any attorney to “get the job done,” but believe me when I tell you that you need more than an attorney, you need a partner and an ally in the process; Warren Brumel is unequivocally that partner. Expect the unexpected during the process and set yourself up for success by hiring Mr. Brumel. I am at the tail end of my 5 year plan and have had to rely on Mr. Brumel and his team more times than I can recall through the years to deal with the unexpected. Each and every time I have called upon on Mr. Brumel and his team, they have answered the call and exceeded any expectation I had. Most recently, Mr. Brumel helped my family and I secure post plan financing to help secure a mortgage on my first home. Mr. Brumel is 100% straight shooter, he is firm, fair and has an unparalleled work ethic. Trust me, it isn’t often that I write reviews, but when I do you can trust them, and you can certainly trust Warren Brumel and his staff!

Will definitely recommend Mr. Brumel!
When you are at the end of the road and forced to make such a big decision as bankruptcy, it can be intimidating to try and find the right lawyer. I was given Mr. Brumel's name by a friend. We had a failed business with personally guaranteed loans. We were scared we might lose everything. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. They were really amazing at making such a difficult situation much easier to deal with. They responded to all our questions quickly, walked us through the process so we always knew what to expect, and made us feel much more at ease. We couldn't have gotten a better outcome. We would definitely recommend him!

An attorney that cares...
I was extremely nervous and embarrassed having to go through a Chapter 7 as a last resort. Mr. Brumel eased all my second thoughts. His insight and professionalism showed in all of our meetings. His warm and caring nature helped me through this rough patch and has put me on the road to recovery..
