Best Attorney, Hands down!
I met with a few attorneys before I hired Mr. Roles. He was well organized, professional and straight to the point of what he could do for me! Very tech savvy office, which was convenient for me, I love the digital world! Anytime I had a question, he would ANSWERED the phone, not at anytime I had to go though a gatekeeper. He is hands on! I was impressed on the services I received and would recommend him to anyone wants TOP NOTCH service!! I’m very particular and Mr. Roles exceeded my expectations. Do yourself a favor, HIRE him!

Professional and personable
George helped us through a difficult time in our lives. His advice, guidance and support helped us to maintain our dignity throughout the bankruptcy process. He initially helped another member of our family who referred him to us. Thank you George.

Excellent
If wondering if bankruptcy is the answer, contact George. He is highly organized, an excellent communicator - professional all the way. He led me through the process with explicit instructions, set forth a clear and fair fee structure and prepared me for what to expect. Honesty and integrity - so refreshing, worth every penny.

You should meet George. He's NOT your typical attorney!
George Roles is one of the most professional and thorough attorneys I have met. I don't give out recommendations often but I would highly recommend him to anybody. He will instantly put you at ease and he no doubt will go beyond the pale for you. He's not the typical arrogant attorney who acts like he's doing you a favor hiring him. He will treat you like a friend and be there for you every step of the way. His communication is impeccable and you will never feel like you are bothering him. He genuinely cares and is in your corner and I can't imagine him missing any details. Many lawyers do. Highly Recommend!

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Roles is the most patient and kind, forthright attorney I have ever interacted with. With a difficult case from a divorce involving a mortgage and property, he gave excellent advice. I would highly recommend him for legal needs!

An attorney who cares
Everyone knows the cliches about Lawyers.... Mr. Roles is different. I’ve had to call him, explaining, asking questions, and requiring his assistance.... EACH TIME~ he was patient, humorous and dedicated. To the point we have been on the phone and he emails me his findings, we discuss the email together at that moment, while he led me thru, and made sure we were on the same wave of thinking. He told me what he thought, what needed to be done, and I never worried (which is a huge factor)!! He corrected my thoughts, very straight forward, and handled business! Mr. Roles will lead you while showing you the way that’s best. Did you know he also supports youth/teens all over MD? Many families having financial issues don’t have to worry if they can afford uniforms and needed items because he helps. A lawyer with a heart? An attorney who is truly community oriented is rare and a gem. Use him! You will be forever grateful!!

Excellent Attorney
After falling on hard financial times following my wife's unexpected passing, George represented me in my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case. He is very supportive and makes sure you don't feel embarrassed for the situation you are in. He put me at ease for the desicion I was making, while explaining all the options the were legally available to me. He gave me reasonalbe expectations of what to expect throughout the process. He was upfront with his fee and didn't try to sell me any services i didn't need and obviously couldn't afford. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is considering bankruptcy. He made making a huge decision a lot more painless then expected.

Bankruptcy
Mr. Roles's helped me and guided me thru the difficult task of having to file for bankruptcy. It was a very hard decision for me to make, but some recent events left me feeling like I had no other alternative at this time. It was something I had never dreamed of that I would need to do in my life time. He helped me not to feel bad or less of a person for having to do so. Having much less financial stress is helping me to be able to deal with other things in my family that are very stressful at this time. He gave me the information I needed and answered any and all questions that I had.

He gets the job done
I searched for a lawyer that would help both my husband and I with our bankruptcy filing. I was overwhelmed by so many choices, and different prices . I had no idea what i was looking for, what we needed or did not need, since this was a whole new chapter in our life, that we were not very informed in. I was able to meet with Mr Roles, and he was able to answer my questions, go over what he could do, and what I would have to do in order to complete our paperwork. He explains and listens to any concerns or questions, and gave me a very accurate timeline of the way things will take place. I was able to contact him with any questions, arrange times that were workable by me, and my husband, and offered a great timeline for payments to be made, which allowed us to get on the proper track we needed. He went to court with us, and really helped make this a great experience, and we never felt judged or made to feel like we failed in any way, and the staff is great as well. I would recommend him to anyone who needs the services, and is not sure who to contact. It was a tough time in our lives, and after going thru this, i can not believe we did not try to do this sooner, Mr Roles really gave us a chance to start over and we are 100 percent satisfied.

Outstanding Attorney, Highly Recommended
I was very thankful to have been led to George by a friend of mine. He listened to my story with empathy and compassion, explained my options and guided me through the entire process of bankruptcy, which I was very hesitant about. He explained things to me in terms that I could understand. He was willing to take my many calls and answer my many questions. His knowledge of the bankruptcy process and his demeanor helped to assure me that I was in good hands! It was exactly the guidance I needed.

Hiring an attorney is difficult; finding one you can trust is hard to find.
George Roles was truly a blessing; a genuine professional in his field. I’m not at all knowledgeable of the court terms and procedures so I greatly appreciated George taking the time to explain either through example(s) or just communicating in a way that I could understand. He is quick to reply via email or phone. I believe he honestly cared about my future outcome and did everything in his power to make sure I was prepared. I know my case is closed but I also know I can call him and/or his staff anytime for any questions I may have. I would highly recommend George to anyone who has had trouble in the past trusting an attorney’s advisement on their behalf.

Knowledgable and compassionate
George was so compassionate in helping us understand and realize our reality of debt that we were in. We were embarrassed and did not want to admit failure. George was always thorough in his explanations as it is a difficult situation and cumbersome process. He made sure we understood what the filing would mean for us financially and emotionally and never treated us like failures. My husband and I feel that George truly cares about our future going forward. We will NEVER be in this situation again but for someone who is in a financial nightmare ( it was miserable and stressful for my husband and I ) Also everyone seemed nice and professional at the office and Lori was a comforting help as well. George is the one! THANK YOU SOO VERY MUCH GEORGE!

Bankruptcy question
When my husband became ill and could no longer work, we were devastated. We were two people who had always paid our bills on time and having to file bankruptcy was something we never thought we would ever have to do. Mr. Roles completely walked us through the whole process while maintaining our sense of dignity. I would recommend this lawyer to all.

George is a great lawyer
George has a great soul. He was there for my husband and I during hard times. My husband had a heart attack at the worst time because at the same time his business was going south along with the of the economy. He was very straight forward with us and gave us advise when we needed it. We needed a strong and knowledgeable person to send us in the right direction. I could email him and most times he would get back to me with in minutes. If he was in court he would says so and email me later. I would highly recommend George Rolls for your helping you turning your life around for the better. Midge
