First class treatment and great results.
We hired Justin to handle our Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Like many people in this situation, we were under a lot of pressure and stress and we were desperate for relief. Upon meeting with Justin, we knew we found a lawyer that was going to get us through this. He took the time to discuss our situation and helped us make the correct decisions. We never felt rushed, we never felt as if we were just on the clock. He exuded confidence and assured us that we were going to get through this. He set us up with a plan that we could manage, walked us through each step of the process, and we have had a very satisfactory result. We never had to manage him or chase him down for answers. He and his staff kept after us to make sure we submitted documents timely, made sure we were at conferences, and simply managed the whole affair. Along with being competent, Justin is very personable. We always felt comfortable talking with him, asking him questions, and walking through options. We never felt looked down upon, or ashamed to be in the situation we were in. He talked to us with a nice mixture of matter-of-fact necessity and tension breaking humor. We really appreciated that. We sought out legal help in desperation and we've been able to live normal lives since. That's something we didn't think possible a few years ago. If you're in a financial hole and need legal counsel, Justin is your guy.

Jusin Gillman was direct, honest and quite knowledgeable. His staff was always polite and helpful. Although the process of going bankrupt was something I felt would be painful and demeaning, Justin made the process quite the opposite. I could have gone to another Attorney but now, having gone through it with Justin Gillman as my attorney, I know the right choice was made. The timeline given was exactly what I was told it would be. In fact, there were no surprises. If anyone finds themselves in the unenviable position of having to file for bankruptcy, I highly recommend Gillman and Gillman. I truly got more than my money 's worth.

Jason made a stressful experience much easier to handle. He sat and took the time to explain each step and was there when I had questions, I liked that he was direct and to the point.

Professional, Efficient, Knowledgeable
Working with Justin and his team on my Bankruptcy Chapter 7 was done efficiently and accurately. Clear communication via email and phone, as well as, in person was done in a timely manner. I was very satisfied with Justin's knowledge, experience and sound advice. This process was started and completed within two months. I highly recommend Justin's service.

Great lawyer!
My husband and I have been clients of Justin for approximately 9 years. He has always given us the best possible advise, took time to explain everything in a way that was clearly understandable to non professionals and never, never failed to return my calls or emails, even though I could be considered a little crazy and annoying at times. I would highly recommend him and his entire staff. Thank you Justin, I will always be greatful to you for all your help!

Competent Lawyer
I am extremely grateful and pleased that I hired Justin to represent me. He was recommended by another attorney and he did not disappoint. He understood my concerns and led me through a difficult experience successfully. I can comfortably recommend him.

Chapter seven Bankruptcy
After a lengthy period of unemployment and A failed business venture I hired Mr Gillman to represent me in the bankruptcy case as debt mounted. Justin was direct, did not sugar coat anything, yet did not pass judgment. He represented me successfully.

Knowlege wise ok, but unfortunately not overall ok for me! But...
I hate to leave a negative or below average feedback, but I feel sorry I had to do it in this case. I met this lawyer to discuss my bankruptcy case, however due to other reasons I could not retain this lawyer. But I was charged $1,000 for an hour and 1/2 meeting (no retainer signed). I requested some money back, but never heard back. But I do see this attorney having good knowledge, so he gets 5 starts for that. But overall I was disappointed, because he didn't return the unused money, especially I explained that that money will help me with my delayed rent payment etc.. Anyway my experience doesn't mean you would experience the same as long as you are smart not to pay any money up front unless a retainer is signed, so on that front my own review for myself as a person is very poor, mean innocent :-). Hope Gods will save innocents.

Response from Justin Gillman June 30, 2015
While we understand the difficulty that our clients are facing when we are contacted, the information in this review is not accurate. We offer free case evaluations to every prospective client. If a prospective client wishes more time, they have the option of a paid consultation, or if they so decide, to retain us. Our office always has written retainer agreements for all matters. In this particular case, I am confident that any client who retained our office also received an invoice for billed time devoted to any matter. I believe that this client was ultimately provided a refund of unused retainer. If there is still any question, I would encourage this client to contact me to discuss.

"I endorse this lawyer. I first met him shortly after his admission to the bar when I was serving as a Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee. He was always well prepared, knowledgable and a forceful advocate for his clients. He is highly respected by both his colleagues and the Judges in bankruptcy court. He is an excellent attorney and a fine individual."
