In a bad spot!!!
When my wife and I were in a bad place,we knew there was only one thing we could do but we were scared. We thought we would be shamed and made to feel undeserving. That wasn't the case we called Mr. Slayton he was very prompt kind and able minded he let us know that we were not alone and many people face the same challenges. He kept us up to date step by step and was always there when we had a question. If you've hit a rough patch I would suggest Mr. Slayton over anyone else.

My consultation with Mr.Slayton
This year has been especially difficult for me what with COVID and trying to help my brother who is terminally ill and whose finances are in a shambles due to no fault of his own. Marshall Slayton took valuable time from his schedule to listen to my problems and offered reasonable suggestions for a possible solution. It has been very uplifting to find someone who truly cares.

Bankruptcy/debt lawyer
Like many, my business and financial situation has been decimated by Covid 19. I recently consulted with Marshall Slayton about my options and how to proceed. Marshall took the time and asked many question in order to get the best understanding of my situation. He spent forty five minutes with me during my consultation and I never at all felt rushed. He gave me, what I felt was great advice on how to proceed. I am hoping that I will not need Marshal’s services, but if it comes to that, I am completely confident that Marshall can guide me through that process. Thanks again Marshall.

Detailed and Personal Free Consultation
I think from the very beginning of our conversation Marshall knew that filing bankruptcy wouldn't be the best option for my family. With that in mind he still spent over 40 minutes of his time explaining several financial and legal options my family had. He provided detailed scenarios as well as contacts to help us if we decided to go down various avenues. I was nervous to meet with a lawyer but can honestly say Marshall was nothing but helpful and kind in our time of need.

Mr. Slayton is compassionate and very thorough in discussing our situation and explaining our options. He gave us answers that relieved a lot of the anxiety we're experiencing during this difficult time and encouraged my husband and I to discuss what will be best for us short term as well as long term. If we decide to move forward, we will definitely be working with him and his team.

Best lawyer in the area.
From the first time that I walked into the office everyone made me feel comfortable. I was very nervous with the journey that I was going to take in bankruptcy but Mr Marshall Slayton was honest and very detailed with what I was going to need and what will be happening step by step. I was informed about every move. He and his team made sure what I would need and when by calling or emailing me. I would recommend him to anyone I know that want to file bankruptcy. Thanks Mr. Slayton for all your help.

A consummate professional
From the day we walked into Mr. Slayton's office, we were treated courteously and professionally. He immediately made us feel at ease and explained each step we would go through in our bankruptcy proceeding. We were told the cost at the beginning, so there were no surprises concerning what we would have to pay. When we got to Court, the proceedings went very smoothly, because he was completely prepared. We would definitely recommend him to any of our friends.

Client review.
Mr. Slayton was a Great bankruptcy lawyer. He was very helpful and informative. All of my questions or concerns we’re answered. His staff is very helpful and polite. I had no issues at all. Made one payment up front and that was it. I think his pricing is fair as well as I have dealt with other lawyers that charge for every email or time they have to meet with you. I would highly recommend Mr. Slayton for anyone who needs to file bankruptcy because he knows how to help you!

My family attorney highly recommended Mr. Slayton to me. My free consultation went well. Filing Chapter 7 was right course of action. The process and his team are well organized. Mr. Slayton is a great attorney. I'm thankful to have selected him to represent me. He is amazingly skilled & professional. I truly appreciate his dedication, guidance and caring. My case was Discharged and closed. I'm grateful that I'm getting my life back on track! He was there for me, and will be for you! I highly recommend him. Thank you again Mr. Slayton.
