Kara was VERY helpful and responded very fast. She did all of the so called dirty work for me in a fast effective way. Her rates are very reasonable too! Any question I had emailed her she answered that day or the next buisness day. Her and her staff are very knowledgeable and very professional! Even if I have questions for her after my bankrupsy was done she answers me without hesitation! I definitely would recommend Kara for anything you need. Thank you so very much Kara!!

Attorney Kara Gendron
Attorney Kara Gendron has been nothing but professional, efficient and extremely helpful to us at a time when we found ourselves in true financial hardship. Without her help and guidance, I don't know where we would be. I would highly recommend Kara if you ever find yourself in need of a true professional attorney and one that has your best interest at heart! Thank you Kara for everything you've done for us!

Kara is a true professional, she always answers emails fast and has a lot of suggestions and top notch helpful answers. Always polite and sincere i wouldn't have gotten through the bankruptcy process without her guidance, she is non-judgemental and very trustworthy and she makes you feel at ease and very welcoming when you are going thru this process, she has good character and is very intelligent and yet still down to earth, very pleasing to work with, she is number 1 in my book.

Very helpful and determined
Kara has helped us on numerous occasions with our case. I had questioned our mortgage company about releasing our lien and they refused. I sent an email to Kara's office, and within a few days, I received word that the mortgage company agreed to release the lien. She did an amazing job. Thank you, Kara
