Excellent experience!
Recently divorced, I had no choice but to file for bankruptcy. John made my experience with Bankruptcy easy. He kept me informed and explained things in a way I can understand. He made himself available every time I called and always gave me the answers I needed. It was a pleasure having him to represent me.

Excellent choice
I searched for an attorney for weeks before I came across The Brooke Law Firm. I decided on this law firm strictly from reading the reviews and it was the best decision I made. John was very pleasant, informative and professional. I am 34 and needed guidance from start to finish with the entire process and John did just that. Not only was he helpful, he was supportive and I was comfortable. He educated me on what to expect, what my outcome would most likely be and he was able to achieve that. It was relatively quick, fair priced, and painless. I owe my fresh start to John and I am very appreciative of him. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a second chance.

Professionalism and Efficiency
I was hesitant about the idea of filing for bankruptcy and totally dreading the whole process of having to find a good attorney to help me through it. I came across the office of John Brooke and read great reviews online, so I decided to make an appointment and meet in person so I could get all of the right information. John answered each one of my questions in a very professional, pressure-free manner, and helped me to get things going. He made himself available to me by phone, email, and in person through the entire process. I could not be happier about the service I received. My bankruptcy was fairly quick, inexpensive, and stress-free, without a single hurdle. Thanks, John!

Best bankruptcy attorney
I had just gotten a divorce and had to declare bankruptcy. I had gone on a free consult with John Brook and felt like family the first time I met him. He sat and explained everything and was very compassionate and understanding. His prices were very reasonable. I obtained him and was very impressed. Anytime I contacted him I got a response right away, he kept me informed every step of the way. I just got my discharge letter exactly three months from start to finish. I would absolutely recommend John Brooke,I think he is the best.

No more debt
Filing for bankruptcy was not an easy decision to for me make, mainly because I didn’t understanding. Mr. Brooke took the time to explain everything and make sure I understood. Once papers were file Mr. Brooke follow the process from inception to completion. He kept me informed throughout the process. Extremely grateful for his assistance and for making me feel at ease. Best attorney experience thus far.

Extraordinary Lawyer that treats you like family!
Let's face it. Having to lawyer up is serious business that can be intimidating and downright frightening. John is the finest attorney I have ever met, period. I was put at ease when we met at my consultation and I immediately felt like the weight of the world was taken off my shoulders. John is totally attentive to his clients needs and feelings. This is not simply a job for Lawyer John, but a calling, if you will. Extremely knowledgeable and super friendly John successfully me through a very difficult time. Any time I had a question or simply needed to get something off my chest about my predicament, John was either immediately available or very promptly called me back, as well as answering my many emails in a timely manner. I highly recommend John. The only lawyer I ever met that I can say is a friend in the truest sense of the word and he really knows his stuff!!!

Simply the Best!
John explained everything in detail and answered all my questions. He walked me step by step through the whole process and advised me exactly what to expect, no surprises. He returned all of my calls, including text and emails. I hope I never have to claim bankruptcy again but if I do, John would be the first person I would call for advice. John is an excellent bankruptcy lawyer!!!
