This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Helping us with a need for guidance
We reached out to Ed and he contacted me within 24 hours. Since we live in Illinois and he isn't licensed to support us - he provided an excellent reference who we have contacted and are awaiting the scheduling of a consultation. He's an honorable, trustworthy man who I would recommend to anyone in need of honesty in their financial review support. Thanks Ed - you're a true leader.

Excellant Bankruptcy Attorney
I used the Law Offices of John T. Orcutt to file my bankrupty in 2009. Edward Boltz was the attorney that helped me out of the Durham office. He was always there to answer my questions or concerns along the way. His staff were helpful. Mr. Boltz went to court with me and made that process so smooth. I was very satisfied with the services that I received from this law firm. I also have sent several friends and family and they all have been pleased with there service and professionalism.
