Most stress free filing bankruptcy could be
Dennis Sargent was amazing from the get go. He was patient with me, making sure I had all the details of my seperation agreement finalized before proceeding to file for bankruptcy. He was very prompt with responses and utilized a lot of online tools to help facilitate an easy process. Having to go through a divorce and file for bankruptcy was very hard, stressful and emotional but Mr. Sargent was very clear in explaining each step of the process and how to obtain all the documents and information he needed to best help me. He made me feel so at ease and confident that I was making the right decision in filing for bankruptcy. Top class gentleman and attorney . Highly recommend.

Excellent Attorney
Atty Dennis Sargent assisted me with my bankruptcy case. He has a sense of professionalism and expertise that I found to be unmatched by others in the business. Atty Sargent is honest and straightforward, and flawlessly handled my case. I might also mention that Atty Sargent's fees were very competitive, and affordable. I would definitely hire this attorney again.

Made a tough decision a smooth process
My wife and I chose Dennis based on his excellent client reviews, and we weren't disappointed! He personally met us for the first appointment and then every subsequent appointment thereafter. He was very professional and informative throughout the entire process. My wife and I were extremely anxious about filing but Dennis was very conscious of our concerns and walked us through the process and made it very manageable for us. Highly recommended!

Tremendously Helpful
Dennis was very professional and helped us with questions concerning our bankruptcy. He made us feel that our case was important and was very empathetic to our situation. We would highly recommend him!

Great experience
Needless to say that I felt super guilty about my debt and I was reluctant to file for bankruptcy until a couple of months ago. Having to go through bankruptcy for the first time can be bit scary and intimidating. Dennis’ communication was thorough; reiterating and keeping me abreast of the processes. During my first consultation, I didn’t have to wait long and he told me what to expect. Dennis was respectful, informative and professional. He took his time to explain the laws and let me know what my options were. Although not all of my debt was dischargeable, I do feel like a heavy load had been lifted off of me. I highly recommend Dennis to handle bankruptcy claims.

A a trusted Bankruptcy Attorney
Over the last 3 years, I have referred numerous friends, colleagues, and aquaintenances who felt stuck in distressed financial situations , to Dennis Sargent. The response from them has been consistent, thanking me for my referal to Dennis. As importantly, when I needed his advise last year, he referred me to another attorney who he thought was more suited to handle my very complex Chapter 13 Case. I'm very grateful for the referral he made as my case was confirmed on September 23rd, a few months earlier than I had anticipated.

Caring and compassionate relief
No one likes to claim bankruptcy. When I first met Dennis he spent time explaining in detail options outside of Bankruptcy and what options I did have if I chose to file. Throughout my experience with filing, Dennis was there every step of the way. He turned what would be considered one of the most difficult times in one's life into an enjoyable experience (as enjoyable as it can be). Without Dennis I think I'd still be underwater looking for a breath of air. Thanks to him, I can not only breathe but can see life without debt and it's truly a beautiful sight.

A true fresh start
Dennis is knowledgeable, patient, supportive and thorough. Filing for bankruptcy was a last choice for me, as I am sure it is for most people. I was nervous and embarrassed. Dennis was kind and calmly walked me through the process, more than once! Now I can truly have a fresh start and do it right this time! Thanks, Dennis.

Review of Dennis J Sargent Jr.
Dennis was and has been very professional and approachable. He has kept us informed about everything. Dennis has made a situation that was hard and tough to go through, tolerable. We were educated on every step of the process.
Posted by Marcia | August 19, 2014
As I was going through the bankruptcy process, Mr. Sargent was very knowledgable and compassionate with every step and provided me with the best service. I would recommend him to anyone thinking of filing bankruptcy. I have provided a friend with his name/number for her to contact him once she makes her decision. I forgot to mention with this review - his fees were very reasonable. THanks, Mr. Sargent for making me feel at ease during the whole process of filing for bankruptcy.

Straightforward and honest
From the first interview to the final outcome Dennis Sargent kept me informed of every step of the process. He is very knowledgeable and him and his staff worked hard putting together my case even when I did things that made him have to go back and correct some of the information. If you are going through bankruptcy Dennis Sargent is the lawyer you want on your side because he is always easy to get in touch with when you have questions or concerns and he will not hang up until you feel satisfied. So when it comes right down to it, if you are feeling that you are drowning under debt and bankruptcy is your only choice called Dennis Sargent and let him and his staff help you.

Professional and Trustworthy
Dennis walked me through a very difficult process. He knows his stuff and was very clear in explaining things. He is trustworthy and an excellent resource. I highly recommend him.
Posted by anonymous | August 21, 2013
It's not often you can say something nice about a lawyer but Dennis Sargent is "Awesome". He really demonstrates his compassion and how much he truly cares about his clients. I was getting advise from family members but it was all over the place and just wasn't helping me at all. Dennis helped me to reduce the stress in my life in regards to debt and whether or not filing for bankruptcy is the best think for me.

Very Professional
Dennis was an ultimate professional throughout the process. He guided me through my bankruptcy giving me professional advice so I could make an informed decision. During the process he was always organized and on top of every situation that arose. After my bankruptcy was complete he helped me contact all the major credit reporting agency to notify them that my bankruptcy was discharged. I would definitely recommend Dennis to anyone considering filing for bankruptcy.
