The advice and help you're looking for
When looking for an attorney it was to my advantage to have met Mr Ammerman. He has handled my case and brought me through the financial situations I've been confronted with even during my bankruptcy. His advice and judgement have always been spot on. Mr. Ammerman and staff have my eternal gratitude.

I highly recommend Harris Ammerman for any bankruptcy and debt-related legal help
I recommend Harris and his staff to anyone seeking bankruptcy-related representation. Harris has a kind, non-judgmental demeanor that immediately put me at ease. I appreciated his no-frills approach in getting right to work on our case without any unnecessary extra steps or delays. He was thorough and dedicated to working our case and helping us in our goal to stay in our home despite the financial and legal challenges we faced.

Help when it was needed
My husband left me and I was unable to pay my debts. Mr. Ammerman and his staff walked me through the steps of a chapter 13 bankruptcy. He always answers my questions and explains the process so I can understand. He is reassuring and patient and I know I am in good hands.

Medical Bankruptcy
Due to a large amount of medical bills the hospital was in the process of garnishing our paycheck, suing us and destroying our credit. Mr. Ammerman filed chapter 13 for us and reconstructed our debt and as of July 2019 we'll be DEBT FREE! Even in between Mr. Ammerman has been extremely helpful in various other situations. We've been working with this office for almost 5 years and he and his staff are always super nice, respectful and professional!

DebtFree
Self-employed and facing foreclosure...Mr. Ammerman gave me an option to save my home and business. 5 years later I completed a Chapter 13 program and able to start over again with the tools not to end up in the same position. Mr. Ammerman was masterful when working through the debt that I had accumulated over the years. He negotiated well with my creditors and dealt with issues that I had along the well. I didn't think I would be able to save my home and become debt free. But he made it happen!!! His staff is also very courteous and professional.

Straightforward
As a result of financial challenges I found my only option was to file bankruptcy. A friend gave me Mr. Ammerman's contact info. The preparation process was explained to me in detail by his staff and when I met with Mr. Ammerman, who reviewed my financials and determined my filing. He further explained to me what would happen before, during, and after the filing. I felt comfortabe with the service I received from the staff and Mr. Ammerman; and the fees were reasonable. I would refer this firm to friends and family.

Financial Distress
When I finally understood that I was never going to able payoff all my credit cards and medical bills not I a million years I called Mr. Ammerman and I sure am glad that I did because Mr. Ammerman knows everything thers is to know about bankruptcy was he looked at my situation he determined that a chapter 7 would be the solution for me 4 months later I am totally debt free and it feels great. So if you are in distress too I highly recommend that you call Mr. Ammerman oh and his paralegal Mauricio was extremley helpful during the whole process as well.

Bankruptcy
Mr Ammerman is the best bankruptcies lawyer I have seen. This is my second case with him and I would not prefer anyone else.

excellent bankruptcy attorney
My husband and I were facing foreclosure and we consulted with Mr. Ammerman. He and his staff were professional throughout the process; he was able to avoid the second mortgage lien on my home and for us to keep our primary residence while compromising other unsecured creditors
