  • H Dana VanHee

    I have had the privilege of watching Tony in action. He is a zealous advocate for his clients. He prides himself on sticking up for the "little guy" when the well-funded banks and credit companies come calling. I wholeheartedly recommend Tony if you have a bankruptcy or debt issue. Simply stated, you won't find a better advocate for these matters than Tony.
