Excellent, attentive, patient and knowledgable-very helpful!
Atty Sasser was amazing, mindful, took his time in helping us with our questions. He never rushed us and was truly very helpful. He went over different aspects of filing Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Usually it is tough to find a decent lawyer who doesn't either rush a client, or pass them off to a paralegal or intake secretary. I was truly amazed at the courtesy and attention he gave us. Thank you!

All around excellent
I met Travis due to an issue that arose while trying to sell my house and having judgments show on the title, which should of been taken care of when we filed Chapter 7 with a different attorney, who is no longer practicing. Travis has helped me tremendously with answering questions that I have had regarding this matter. He has gone over and beyond with contacting my closing attorney with handling the issues on the title. Again, Travis has gone over and beyond with helping me and I will scream it from the roof, he is an exceptional and ordinary attorney. I would and will recommend him to anyone who is seeking legal services and if I would need those services , I would definitely chose him. Excellent job, Travis! Thank you for all that you do.

Life Changers
We have been working with Travis for the past 5 years and just got our discharge papers. Throughout the process, he calmly answered my sometimes hysterical questions and concerns and provided a level head and excellent guidance thru a process that is scary and embarrassing. All the staff is kind hearted and non-judgmental. Highly recommend them.

Great Attorney and ofice staff is amazing.
I came to Sasser Law firm 4 years ago drowning in debt not knowing what I was going to do. Sasser Law firm filed chapter 13 for me and stayed on top of my case during the 4 years my case was in the court, their staff was courteous and very knowledgeable. My case was recently discharged and I finally got my dignity back thanks to these amazing attorneys and their staff.

Very helpful
I really lucked out when I chose Sasser Law firm for my bankruptcy. I have known a few people that have went through the process and feel I received more helpful advice. I was hesitant to file bankruptcy but had followed some of their suggestions after my initial consultation when I was hit with another judgement, after helping me fill out the paperwork to protect my assets, they looked over my file again and I decided to go ahead with the bankruptcy. Where I really saw the difference in lawyers was during the meetings with the trustee. I felt that my interests were represented better than most of the people that went through the process that day. Since then I have had a few questions come up and have received a detailed response within a business day.
