Review Richard Croak

  • Courteous and helpful right when needed!

    After languishing for 4 months with an attorney who demanded a steep up front fee and then never filed, leaving us in a worse situation, I searched and found Richard Croak. He responded to my Sunday morning website inquiry by 9am on Monday and gave me a face to face meeting within 2 days! As much as I despise that bankruptcy was my last resort, Richard and his staff were courteous and knowledgeable throughout the process. They are helpful and I am appreciative, but I plan to never need their services again! If you are in need, contact Richard without hesitation.

    I contacted Mr. Croak in April, and recently for more assistance with the same issue. Each time he responded promptly and was very helpful and pleasant. I would recommend him to anyone seeking assistance

    A few years ago, I found myself in the unfortunate situation to have to seek bankruptcy protection, first for my business and not long after that followed by personal bankruptcy. After having spoken with two or three bankruptcy lawyers, whose approach was one that made me even more uncomfortable than I already was, I picked an ad from the Yellow Pages that stated "There is life after debt".
    The first thing that struck me about Mr. Croak during our initial meeting was his ability to make his client comfortable in an extremely uncomfortable situation. His approach was exceptionally professional but personable at the same time. Mr. Croak made the process clear for a lay person. After I decided to hire Mr. Croak the process was, though agonizing, executed in a way that deserves my utmost respect.
    The major creditor in the business bankruptcy was the same creditor in the personal bankruptcy and in both case they brought in hostile attorneys. To this day, I am in awe of Mr. Croak's ability to counter several unjust occurrences with extreme poise. His knowledge of the bankruptcy laws and procedures are apparent in his approach. Both cases were discharged after which I was able to reconstruct both my business as well as personal life. I highly recommend Mr. Croak

    Richard Croak has a way of leading you to the right answer by asking you the right questions. He is intelligent, caring, and knowledgeable. He helped me realize what my options were on an old negative amortization mortgage loan, and led me to how to figure out expected reset payments amounts which opened and corrected my mind on teh subject.
    Thank you Richard!

    Mr. Croak demonstrated a genuine interest in helping me in a time of great need. I was extremely nervous and he made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He demonstrated empathy to my situation and was not judgemental. I am confident in recommending his expertise to any client.

    i found myself in a bad financial situation and Mr Croak was a great help in finding some light at the end of a pretty dark financial tunnel.I would recommend his services to any one who finds themselves in the same situation.

  • Took money from hard-working single mom and never performed services he was hired for.

    He took money from me to lift a bankruptcy stay so that I could pursue my ex-husband for court ordered spousal support and this lawyer never performed the services he was hired for, dodged phone calls, gave excuses and after nearly a year and countless phone calls, I have not received a single piece of paper from him stating that he did anything for me other than take my money (did not even get a receipt for payment other than my cancelled check). I would never recommend this guy for anything.

    I used another lawyer first who got me in deep trouble. Rick took over and was able to put things right.
