Being set free from Debt
I really appreciate all the help and sincerity that Mr. Heath Burger provided for me, he set me free from all my debt that I was stuck in . For years it depressed me and weighed me down, now Im set free from all of it. I can experience true peace and happiness, a huge burden has been lifted, and now I can finally move forward with my life. Thank you Heath, and thank you Jesus.

Bankruptcy!!
Highly recommend! Heath went to bat for me when an otherwise typical bankruptcy took an unexpected turn. Heath stood up for me and continued to fight and defend me, 5 years after I started my bankruptcy. He never wavered and went above and beyond what would be expected under the circumstances. A positive outcome was garnered only because of his hard work and diligence,

Excellent Attonery
Unbelievable helpful most pleasant to talk to. Went out of his way for helping me with this. I just can say highly recommend. I’ve been around a few Attonerys in my time and Mr. Burger is the best by far.

SUPERIOR
I have consulted with and hired Heath Berger to resolve personal debt relief. Let me say how relieved I was that he asked only the questions relevant to my situation. Never prodding to make me feel worse. He listened then told me the plan to resolve the matter. He ttold me in such a way that I immediately felt relieved. Not because he was doing me a favor but rather he is well versed on the subject. Heath Berger is the best attorney I have ever consulted with. If I or any one I know ever has a legal matter to resolve I will definitely contact him. Thank you for your greatness.

We just received our order of discharge in the mail yesterday. I can't thank Heath Berger enough for his knowledge, professionalism, compassion and perseverance through this process. It was a difficult step in our lives - one that that Heath made bareable!

Excellent Attorney
Heath Berger is a highly skilled and knowledgeable attorney. Heath is always willing and able to answer any and all questions/concerns. He then explains everything to you in terms that you can easily understand. His front office staff are the kindest and most compassionate people that we have ever dealt with, willing to go the extra mile for clients. Heath not only assisted us with out bankruptcy, but also a closing on our parents home. Heath not only fights for his clients, but he truly cares about them.

Heath S Berger saved my financial life!
I had bought into a business that promised me $100,000.00 worth of credit that never materialized, causing me to go from about $8K in debt, to close to $30K in debt. This caused my FICO score to go from 802 to under 600. I could not handle the payments, thereby, forcing me to file for bankruptcy, using Attorney Heath S Berger. We saw a judge on 12/07/17. Mr Berger then told me that the creditors were allowed 60 days to dispute my case, & if all went well, the discharge would be filed 30 days later. This 90 day projection would end about the beginning of March, 2018. At the beginning of February, 2018, I was presently surprised to receive a letter from Mr Berger, stating that my discharge was already filed, 30 days sooner than what was projected to me. Mr Berger's firm is now my go to firm for anytime that I may need an attorney, even if it is only for a referral. I am now able to start my life fresh! Thanx much Heath Berger.

Excellent Lawyer
Heath Berger is an excellent lawyer he has helped us get thru a very hard time. He is very professional, reliable and competitent. He took our case on and helped us win in a timely fashion and without too much stress. Even after our case was closed, he is still willing to answer any and all questions we have for no additional fees. I have delt with other attorneys in my past and they were not nearly as cordial, reliable or caring as Heath Berger is! I would recommend him to anyone ! : )

Pride in Bankruptcy
At 54 years old it is hard to imagine the feeling of having to file chapter 7. Besides embarrassment, FEAR. How will I be perceived? Will I ever be able to buy a home or even lease a car in my own name. My attorney, Heath Berger, not only put my mind at ease, but explained in great detail, as many times as I needed, the process. That my life, as far as creditor and lender, will become a clean slate! Imagine not getting anymore calls from collection agencies, Imagine your mail box filled with mail of from companies that want to sell TO you rather than people looking to take money FROM you! His patience is without comparison. As he realizes this is a sensitive issue, Heath goes overboard for his clients so can we spend more time absorbing the situation. He is also makes you feel that he is honored to help you as he believes whole heartedly in the process. After all is said and done. DO NOT LET YOUR DEBTS SCARE YOU..Heath Berger is a great option. Take a deep breath, and call Heath

Bankruptcy Court Savviness
Imagine being outdoors on the worst upcoming winter storm day without the proper attire and being homeless. This is the metaphor you would feel like without legal representation in a bankruptcy courtroom. I was given the wrong advice to file chapter 7. After reaching out to Heath S. Berger; only then I received the correct consultation to file chapter 13. Heath examined my circumstance in detail. His preparation and attention to detail is the experience you will endure with him representing you in a courtroom!

Chapter 7 bankruptcy
Heath Berger recently handled our chapter 7 bankruptcy. His knowledge is impeccable and with his guidance we are again financially secure. Heath was patient and answered all our questions while thoroughly explaining each step in our bankruptcy. He was always available to answer our calls and his staff was a pleasure to deal with. We would highly recommend Heath Berger to anyone who is contemplating bankruptcy.

Chapter 7 case
Heath represented our family in a successful Chapter 7 case. He was up front with us regarding the process and was very accommodating to our needs, meeting on Saturdays as to not disturb our work/school schedules. The court appointed trustee on the case challenged our petition, however, Heath was diligent in fighting for us and we eventually had the case dismissed in our favor.
