The Rapa Law Firm provides excellent service and reliability. My requirements needed special attention and their office conducted themselves professionally every step of the way. They provided me with proper updating and assurance with attention to details.
I highly recommend the Rapa Law Firm to solve your legal needs and protect your rights.

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 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.
