Allen Gorski provided excellent counsel
Mr. Gorski was an excellent representative. When our small business was unpaid for a large debt due to a corporate bankruptcy, he counseled us wisely and represented us ably - eventually recovering much more than we expected.

Honest, Fair and Direct
Allen is a talented, capable and informed bankruptcy attorney. He was patient, empathetic and creative in how he helped me devise a plan and equip me to fulfill it. Best of all, Allen stuck nearby me throughout the entire three-year process. Allen never judged me, nor my circumstances, and was a genuine advocate for me with the judge and trustee. He never failed to swiftly and plainly answer my questions, push back on the trustee, where necessary, and went out of his way to ensure I was kept up-to-the-minute with the trustee's requirements. I'd strongly recommend Allen if you are contemplating a bankruptcy.

Highly Recommended
Allen Gorski made filing for bankruptcy completely stress free. He walked me through every step, followed up and stayed in touch throughout the process and explained everything in detail so that I thoroughly understood it all. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a knowledgeable, capable and very reliable attorney. He made a very daunting decision/situation less worrisome.

Extremely professional, extraordinarily nice
Mr. Gorski, smoothly paved every step of the chapter 13 process for us. He was rapidly responsive, and had the answers before we even asked the questions. He was always on top of every issue, and was extremely kind and considerate during this difficult time. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. I couldn't recommend him more strongly to anyone who needs his services.

I just want to take a moment and thank Alan Gorski for his help and guidance during a very emotional time of my life. He was patient and understood the stresses I was undergoing while dealing with imaginable circumstances. He was honest, knowledgable, personable and responsive. I felt that he was a partner vs. being my lawyer during this process. I highly recommend him for anyone looking at the unfortunate case of bankruptcy. Thank you again Alan. -J

Bankcrupcy done
Allen's requests for information were simple and to the point, explained me my options and provided his view on my case and we made the decision. Results were as expected, process was simple and his guidance appropriate.

Immaculate Service!!!
This is the first time I had ever filed for bankruptcy and I was extremely nervous about the filing process. Mr. Gorksi does outstanding work and is highly professional. He also has a great sense of humor which helped to diffuse my anxiety level about the situation and really went the extra mile to address any concerns that came up along the way. He is very accessible and was prompt in returning my calls whenever I had an inquiry. I strongly recommend Mr. Gorski without any reservations!!!
