Passionate and professional
I’ve got nothing more to say than professionalism for this firm. Every aspect of my case was fully explained to me in detail and there were never any surprises. Communication is excellent, especially when I would receive mail and have questions regarding the content. Paula and her team are outstanding!

Chapter 13
Paula represented my case involving a commercial loan where I was a creditor to a real estate company filing a Chapter 13. This was the first time I had gone through a Chapter 13 so I knew little about the process. She explained how we would proceed and was very meticulous in working out a strategy to help ensure I would receive as much as possible during the stay as she knew (correctly) the debtor would likely default. She worked MANY hours on this case, made numerous court appearances and in the end was VERY generous with her time and fee. I highly recommend Paula in any bankruptcy/ real estate case.

The best there is.
My wife and myself needed a Law firm we could trust. A lawyer that had experience, and knowledge. And one that would treat us like family, not just another client. We found all of those attributes. Who you ask, her name is Paula Barbaruolo. Paula and her team are by far the best. She answered all of our questions, addressed all of our concerns. When you step in the door of her office, you automatically feel comfortable. Her attention to detail, is second to none. When she tells you she's going to accomplish the reasons you came there for, she does just that. There's never any stress when you're there, or when you leave. I can't emphasize enough to each and every person that needs a top notch Lawyer, don't hesitate, contact Paula. I promise you, it will be the best phone call you will ever make. On a scale from one to ten,I give Paula and her team a twelve.
