Awesome experience!
David Gormley and Dana Moreland are the best! Everything was done in a timely manner and they were very companionate. I did not know my bankruptcy would only take almost 3 months. This was not a long process and they explain every step in detail. I love the service they provided. Also let me not leave out Mr. Gormley’s humor that would keep a smile on my face and Ms. Dana was such a sweat heart with her sincere patience. If you ever need David Gormley service do not hesitate to call him.

Ms.
I was able to speak to Mr. Gormley via phone to inquire what the process was to file for bankruptcy. I made an appointment with the week and met with him in his office. He was very informative and asked frequently if I understood everything and if I had questions. I hired Mr. Gormley and within the week after filling out my paperwork the case began. Mr. Gormley notified me when the hearing was at the court to meet with the trustee and met me there in advance of our docket. Mr. Gormley and the trustee advised there would be about a 90 waiting period for the case to be adjudicated. I was advised my email recently when the case was finalized. Mr. Gormley is a credit to his profession and I found myself relaxed and informed through the entire process. If you need an excellent attorney, hire him.

Awesome lawyer
I highly recommend Mr. Gormley! He was always available to answer questions (and I asked A LOT!) and so was his paralegal, Louise. He made this process easy and stress-free. Mr. Gormley explained every step of the process in a way that was easy to understand. I had a free consultation with him and then hired him to represent me. He was professional and extremely helpful the entire time.

Positive experience
I had the opportunity to discuss my legal concerns with David Gormley. He was very patient, easy to talk to, attentive, and knowledgeable. I asked him about two separate legal issues. He was generous with his time and did not rush me. I would have gladly hired him except that he redirected me to seek legal council in a different state because of the nature of my legal issues.
