Best Attorney
Attorney Roger Islas represented me with my bankruptcy in the summer of 2020. I found him on the internet without a rereferral, when I called the office I was surprised that he answered the phone himself. He made me an appointment for the next week and e-mailed me all the paper work that I needed to bring with me. He takes time with you and answers all you questions. I didn't know anything about bankruptcy and he explained the laws and the procedures a couple times to me without getting frustrated. When you call the office he answers the phone and answers your questions right then and there, it amazes me that he remembers your case even though he is driving in his car. He very detailed and professional and gets right to the point, he doesn't mess around, you know exactly what your dealing with. As far as I concerned you will not find a better attorney

Trustworthy and helpful.
I contacted Roger Isla during a tumultuous time in my life. He was patient in explaining every detail of the bankruptcy process. He made sure I was prepared for court. There was no judgment or negativity. I would definitely refer him to friends and family.

If you are considering filing bankruptcy, you want to call Roger Isla!
I never thought that I would find myself in a position to have to file bankruptcy. However, I lost my job and had a series of personal tragedies that left me in a terrible financial position. My only option, after working for months to right this train, was to contact an attorney and file for bankruptcy protection. My first contact with Mr. Isla was by phone on Monday. On Wednesday, I had a consultation with him. He was very professional, courteous and immediately put me at ease. He asked several questions in order to understand my financial situation. He took his time with me and explained the process; he kindly answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns; he provided me with a detailed list of information that I would need to compile in order for the case to be filed. I gathered the information, which was detailed in the list he provided me and simply followed the instructions. On Saturday, I met with Mr. Isla and my case was filed with the bankruptcy court. I would highly recommend Roger Isla for anyone who needs an attorney. He is very professional, extremely competent and such a kind man. This is one of the worst things that has happened to me in my life! I was scared, ashamed that I failed financially and didn't know how I would get through this. Mr. Isla's professionalism and empathy for his fellow man made this experience so much better. If you need an attorney - one who is exceptionally intelligent, one who is willing to put you first, one who is there for you and will diligently represent you - I suggest that you call Mr. Isla. We have an exceptional attorney right here in the Ohio Valley! I called Mr. Isla on Monday, met with him on Wednesday and my bankruptcy case was filed on Saturday.
