Turned a negative into a positive
Facing bankruptcy was one of scariest times in my adult life and the prospect of what could happen to myself and my family was overwhelming. One of the first things that happened when I spoke to Norma was she assured me that everything i was feeling was normal and that it was going to be okay. Her years of experience allowed her to know everything I was feeling and exactly what I needed to do to get through it. It didn't stop with her. The time and attention her staff gave me was appreciated. They answered every question, call, and email and never left me feeling alone. Bankruptcy isn't something that i wish for anything but having Norma and her team there made it a million times better.
