My wife and I retained Attorney Jason Rapa to represent us when four credit card companies decided to attempt to obtain judgements against us for past due credit card debts. I can't imagine an attorney could know more about these matters and how to handle them than Jason Rapa. After throughly informing us of the process that would transpire, Jason successfully defended 2 of these 4 lawsuits. The other 2 are still pending a court dates however I'm 100% confident Attorney Rapa will successfully defend these as well. We learned that the law is on your side in these matters and Attorney Rapa can help. The bottom line is Attorney Rapa has already saved us thousands of dollars. Even better, once Attorney Rapa is successful, these creditors must remove the debt from your credit report as if it never existed.
We have already recommended Attorney Rapa to one person and would not hesitate to recommend him to any friends and family in the future. If you need credit help, you need to call Jason Rapa!

After meeting with several attorneys, my wife and I selected Jason to handle our Bankruptcy matter. Being in financial distress is difficult enough - worrying about being hounded by bill collectors and the fear of losing your home. However, we felt as though many of the other attorneys we spoke to were talking down to us and made us feel uncomfortable. My wife, in particular, felt like several other attorneys were more interested in judging our misfortune than helping us find the right solution. We felt very comfortable with Jason and knew from our first meeting he understood that even good people can find themselves in financial trouble. Jason was also very good at explaining the complex details of bankruptcy in a way that made sense and related to our specific situation. If you're looking for an attorney who will treat you with respect and has the skills necessary to navigate you through the bankruptcy process, I would definitely recommend Jason Rapa.

I would not hesitate in recommending Jason to someone, I only wish I had listened to him sooner and taken his advice the first time he gave it. He was right on the money and knows what he is talking about. Take it from someone who had to find out the hard way. If Jason suggests you do something, Do it! It will save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
Very happy with the results!!

Jason and everyone at Rapa law firm treated me with dignity and respect as they helped me through the problems I was having with debt collectors. They informed me of what collectors could do and what they could not do. Discussed my options. In my case they defended me on each account without having to declare bankruptcy. On each account that has gone to court judgement was found in my favor as a result of a vigorous defense provided by Jason/Matt. Frankly their defense saved me thousands of dollars. I am so glad I decided to contact them and have them defend me. My advise. Don't be intimidated by debt collectors! Instead contact Rapa law office and let them help ou, as they did me.

I had a collector lying to me claiming to be working on behalf of the courts. Jason not only forced this agency to stop but to pay off the entire debt. He was fast, honest, knew the law inside out, innovative and how to use it for the benefit of his client, me, and kept me informed every step of the way. If I ever have another such a problem definitely my first call is to Attorney Rapa.

Jason Rapa has been incredibly helpful, informative and knowledgable. Whenever I've had a question or concern he responds almost immediately with straightforward and easy to answer responses. In my experience he was an excellent guide through the legal system from start to finish and I am very grateful to have been able to work with him.

Mr Rapa offers an hour free consultation. He was well informed on the subject (short sales vs foreclosures) and gave me excellent advice. I recently emailed him with a followup question regarding Collection Agency with 2nd mortgage and he responded immediately. I sincerely appreciate and thank you so much for all of your help.

We needed Jason for a few different legal needs. What we liked the most about Jason is that we felt very comfortable discussing our personal issues with him, he was very caring about the way we felt and knowledgeable about our legal needs.
