Damon Terry Duncan, Bankruptcy Attorney
This was the hardest decision of my life, when you go thru it, you feel there is no future and you feel like a loser. When I spoke to Damon Duncan & his staff, they made me feel comfortable and walked me thru the whole process of filing, going to the court review, etc. I knew I was in the right place and hired him without hesitation. The paperwork can be gruesome, but Damon has it all simplified on their website. I can't say enough good things about them, as they have truly made my future brighter. I feel for the first time in years, I will be able to start fresh, take the information and knowledge they provided and use it for mapping out my future and most of all paying it forward.

My review of Damon Terry Duncan
After my first consultation with Mr. Duncan, I felt very comfortable hiring him to represent me in my Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. He and his staff were very professional and easy to work with. Happy to say all went well and my case is now discharged.

Damon Duncan was great from the consultation visit through the court appearance. He always made me feel at ease and confident about my decision and the bankruptcy process. He is organized, reliable, and keeps you notified of everything to expect throughout the process. He really made an awful circumstance seem not so bad!

Detailed, professional, efficient
We found Atty Duncan on an online search. We were able to get in quickly for a free consultation. He answered all our questions and told us what the steps and timelines would be. After we hired him, the paperwork and videos were very easy. Everything went as planned and the timelines he gave us were accurate. All phone calls and emails were answered and his staff is very helpful. Even at the Trustee’s meeting he broke down what to expect. It was a very streamlined efficient process and we would recommend Atty Duncan. All you have to do is follow the steps within the timeframes given. We have since been discharged and are looking forward to rebuilding our credit.

Damon and his staff helped me out of a bad financial situation. They took a lot of the stress out of going through bankruptcy, chapter 7 in my case. The process was organized, thorough and easy to follow. It was time consuming but I expected that.

Highly Recommended
I came to Damon Duncan hoping that I could resolve my financial problems. He is very specific and accurate on what you should expect in a bankruptcy and is very trustworthy. He is upfront on details and will also help you step by step on the bankruptcy process. His videos will help you with the paperwork as long as you do exactly how he asks it to be done. He also shows you how to get to the Bankruptcy Court if you don't know how to get there! I would highly recommend hiring Damon Duncan for all your financial hardships to be resolved.

Angst to resolution
Mr Duncan was highly professional and supportive. He was thorough in covering all of my options and the consequences of each. He and his staff helped me through a difficult time with their support. I found Mr. Duncan to be most thorough in his work on my behalf. I have deep respect for his work and for that of his staff.

Kind and Honest -- Two words I never thought I'd use to describe a lawyer!
How many bankruptcy attorneys do you know who would recommend AGAINST filing for bankruptcy if it's not in your best interests? Because that's exactly what Damon Duncan did. He laid out all of my options, explained them in detail in a way I had no trouble understanding, then he went through and clearly explained why he would or would not recommend each one. Ultimately, his recommendation was a course of action that didn't involve bankruptcy, and therefore made him no money. But he recommended what he thought would be best for me anyway. In addition to all that, his demeanor was more than I ever could have hoped for. I have some pretty significant social anxiety issues, especially in situations like meeting with a lawyer, but not once did it even cross my mind to feel judged, or like a failure (both of which are feelings that come far too easily for me). He was laid-back, personable, and so very kind. I am immensely grateful to him for that, and if I ever end up having to file for bankruptcy in the future, I already know exactly where I'll go!! :)

Like a Bodyguard for Your Financial Future
Never have I felt more secure about a decision that had so much gravity for my future. The team worked diligently to get my bankruptcy done quickly and without incident. When in my creditors meeting, I saw lawyers/representatives that didn't appear to be helpful, almost as if they were on the banks side for their clients. I knew from day one that Damon and his team were on my side and they were there every step of the way reassuring me and my decision. From answering every silly question, to offering a friendly handshake, wink, or head nod when under the stressful intimidation of the creditors meeting, Damon and his team will not let you fail, and will make sure the outcome is exactly what you want for a fresh start. If you want someone that will be a straight shooter, with extensive knowledge, a professional dignity, who will reassure you, and offer comfort in a time of despair then look no further than Damon Duncan and his team. Thank you guys! You have helped me get back on track with my finances and with my life!

Worth Every Penny!
I was very nervous and ashamed of having to file for bankruptcy, but Damon and staff made it as painless as possible. In the end it really was as painless as Damon assured me it would be. I struggle with social anxiety issues that make unfamiliar situations, meeting new people, and especially new people under such stressful conditions, absolutely unbearable. Damon and staff worked with me to make sure that I was comfortable with them and the process as we went along. Damon's Winston Salem office is small, low-key, and has a very comfortable atmosphere. My life partner attended every meeting with me at Damon's office and we were received warmly and respectfully every time. I only mention that because though we are in living in a modern society, not all people are treated equally in matters of diversity in these modern times. That was really important to me and I really appreciated it. Damon took into consideration everything I was concerned about with my filing, and gave me straight forward and honest answers. Everything he told me was accurate and happened just as he said it would be. Damon's office has put together many videos on YouTube that walks you through the bankruptcy process and answers pretty much every question I had. He even shows you the "courtroom", where you will stand, etc.., which really helped me out to have a visual since I was expecting a big dramatic southern courtroom for some reason. I highly recommend anyone on the fence about filing bankruptcy or unsure about Damon, to check his videos out. If I did have a question, Damon's staff was just a phone call or email away. They all treated me with respect and were truly willing to make this stressful process as painless as possible. I had contacted another highly rated lawyer listed on Avvo (who I will not name), but decided to look elsewhere because the other lawyer was arrogant and I felt did not have my best interests in mind. Damon told me that once I was finished with the bankruptcy that I would look back and realize that I was stressing over nothing. He was absolutely right, and wished I had filed earlier before I let my debt consume my life and effect my health. If you are reading this and can relate to my situation on any level; stop throwing your money away down a black hole that you will never get out of and give Damon's office a call. The amount of money it costs to file was just a fraction of what I was spending a month just to keep my head above water financially. Like myself, you will thank yourself for it when it is all done and over. Thank you again to Damon, Jessica and Emily for all your help.

A a very difficult situation made easy by Duncan Law!
Damon Duncan, and his outstanding staff, made what was a very difficult situation bearable. Before, and during the bankruptcy process we felt a great deal of stress, but, that stress was eased a great deal with the very able guidance of Damon and his staff. They were with us every step of the way, explaining each step fully, which really helped ease our fears. Damon and his staff were always there to answer any and all questions we had, and basically held our hands through the entire process. We highly recommend Damon Duncan to anyone even thinking of going through bankruptcy, he and his outstanding staff will guide you through the process, and put any fears behind you. Damon, thanks to you and your staff for providing an great experience out of a very difficult journey.

No Way Out
In March of 2014, I found myself in a sinking pit of debt. I had loans and credit cards that had built up until there was absolutely no way to pay my debt. I received Social Security as my only income, and my debt each month was way more than what I received. I had been playing the old "Taking from Peter to pay Paul" game. I was worn down with worry and lost sleep. I was very lucky to find Damon Duncan at Duncan Law. From the very first meeting I was so scared and nervous), everyone at the office was kind and very helpful. Through the coming months of gathering items of tax information, insurance, bank statements, I had maybe a hundred questions -- all of them explained and answered quickly from the office. At last it was time for the review with Damon, which was made very comfortable for me. Then the BIG DAY came at court. I was again fearful of the unknown, but Damon was right there with me and soon it was over. What a feeling of relief! Of freedom from worry and nights of sleeplessness. If you find yourself WITH NO WAY OUT, there is help and hope and it is at the offices of Duncan Law. Thank you Damon and everyone!
