Would highly recommend!
Gary was recommended to us after an attorney that we randomly selected did nothing to ease our financial difficulties. We had very little contact with the original attorney and she created a debt repayment plan that did not reduce our monthly payments. Gary was very understanding of our situation and was able to create a plan that saved us thousands each month. He was very sincere and dedicated to working with us and our creditors to obtain a fair payment plan that was acceptable by all parties involved. He was personally involved in every step of the process. I would highly recommend Gary to anyone ever needing an attorney for financial hardship.

Gary Short is an excellent attorney/advocate
To begin with, Gary provided a free very THOROUGH consultation of my case (over the phone--which was important because I was too busy to come into anyone's office unnecessarily). During which he listened very carefully to the facts. He did not just assume that my case was like others he had heard before, and I was impressed by this. After listening to the facts, and asking some question, he provided my options. This also impressed me, because it was clear he was knowledgeable in his area and this was all over the phone in the initial interview for FREE. Gary provided an up front estimate of his services. After I hired Gary, he stood by me, like a good friend every step of the way. My case was complicated and my life was hectic. I was recently divorced, and was being sued by some opportunistic out of state tenants. My insurance company bailed on me and I was up to my ears in debt with ridiculously high interest rates. I was a single mother, full time employee, in the midst of relocating for the job, business owner (landlord), up to my ears in debt with ridiculously high interest rates. I am a type A, attention to detail, person and I was literally overwhelmed (to tears) by my circumstances. Gary Short was the rock, that I needed and depended on. His work and attention to detail helped me to concentrate on the rest of my life, resting assured that he had the legal matters covered. What he said he would do, he did. What he said would happen, happened and along the way, he treated me like he had my back. He had my best interest at heart, like a good friend. He did an excellent job. Every step of the way, he explained all my options to me in a manner that enabled me to make informed decisions. He provided recommendations and I trusted his judgement and he did not fail me. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. I HIGHLY recommend Gary Short.

Excellent
Attorney Short has helped me solve issues that I had with the Internal Revenue and Dept. of Rev. I have been his client for many years. Without his help, they would have froze my accounts or garnished my wages. I feel he is a very trustworthy and honest man. i would definately recommend him for future clients.

Excellent attorney
I was referred to Gary Short after we were forced to close my husband's business. Our case seemed somewhat complicated with both personal and business related financial issues. Gary handled everything without difficulty. He was knowledgeable and immediately inspired our confidence. He was always our advocate. I have needed his expertise twice since then and again was pleased. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a simple or complex financial issue.

For Gary Short
Gary, for my particular case, was very understanding of my position and was exemplary in understanding the laws that pertained to my particular case. He was creative in working out a detailed plan and working through the courts to overcome several obstacles. He was very instrumental in eliminating some of the financial burden that was placed on me during this difficult time. I would highly recommend Gary for his support and knowledge.

Not Shorted
I had never imagined that I would be involved in filing personal bankruptcy and did not know any attorneys who specialized in that area of law. Mr. Short was very creative with my case, saved me money, made an unpleasant experience at least bearable, and gave me a dignified way to reorder my finances and pay my debts. I highly recommend Attorney Short to anyone who needs his services.

He saved my business
Without Gary's incredible attention to detail and knowledge of bankruptcy law, I would not still be in business. I had creditors that were fighting my first plan and he not only resolved those issues, but had numerous interest issues removed to help me fund the plan. My second plan was strictly a tax issue based and he managed to get it approved, in spite of the opposition from the tax agencies.

I would recommend anyone who has experienced an economic setback in their life to get in touch with Attorney Short. He is a professional and very dedicated to protecting his client's assets in a stressful environment. Attorney Short's advice help to save my home and a large part of my retirement savings while making sure my creditors received fair compensation. His support has helped to heal many wounds I and my family have suffered as a result of the economic down turn of 2007-08.

Gary Short Employed a Strategy that Worked Perfectly
Gary Short was our attorney in a bankruptcy strategy that included both corporate and personal bankruptcies. He used a strategy that worked very well for us to come out ahead once all were settled. His knowledge of the law and ability to strategize for our particular situation was truly impressive. I would highly recommend him as an attorney and have recommended him to friends and acquaintances in the past. Thank you, Gary!

Looks out for your interest
Throughout my business career, I have had the opportunity to work with many attorneys. Gary Short listened to my issues, created a strategy, and implemented that strategy flawlessly. Gary is very easy to talk to, get a hold of either by email or phone and was very attentive in listening to my concerns. I would, without question, recommend Gary Short to assist anyone regarding legal advice for bankruptcy issues.

Excellent Attorney
Gary Short provided outstanding legal advice and guidance during my bankruptcy. He came highly recommended to me by my primary attorney who was helping me with past due taxes and was considering Ch 7 for us. Unfortunately I could no longer work within the IRS repayment plan once I realized that I was accruing more than $10K in penalty & interest annually and bankruptcy seemed the only alternative. Gary was a true blessing to my situation. He immediately squelched the Ch 7 plans because I made too much income and would have been denied with no other options to consider. I knew he was the right attorney for me when he called me early on a Sunday morning and said: "I've been laying in bed trying to think of a strategy for you and I think I have it..." And his strategy worked very well for my situation considering the IRS was involved. I am extremely grateful for Gary's expertise and guidance. Our plan was very fair for all parties as I did not want to just walk away from my debt but wanted a fair and reasonable plan to repay and cease the overwhelming IRS penalty & interest charges.
