We dealt with Carol and her firm 5 years ago. They helped us through the whole process of filing chapter 7, supported us through the decision we were making, and made everything simple. 5 years later I needed some paperwork from the filing. I am amazed that not only did Carol remember my wife and I, but she had our information at hand and was able to send us what we needed right away. Filing chapter 7 was not an easy decision to make, but working with such professionals made made the process easier to handle.

Carol and Rob recently helped me with my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. It was a challenging case, as I had filed a Chapter 13 in Kansas, before losing my job and relocating to GA. They had to do a lot of research on which state's law should apply and how best to handle the sale of my residence in Kansas.
They were both so helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. I hope I never have to use them again, but they would certainly be my first call should the need ever arise!

I was extremely apprehensive about hiring a lawyer and going through bankruptcy but Carol and her Partner Rob eased my concerns. They were extremely professional yet personable at the same time. Any questions and concerns were answered efficiently. I definitely recommend Carol and Rob Colliersmith for anyone going through hard times and are considering legal advise/representation.

Carol is a distinguished bankruptcy attorney whom I heartily recommend. She is a leader in the bankruptcy community and handles each client with genuine care and dedication. I would not hesitate to refer clients to Carol.
Robert Broome, Bankruptcy and debt Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have known Carol & Rob for more years than any of us wants to remember, and came to know them as an opposing creditor's lawyer in cases over time. They make a great team, complement each other well, are fine Attorneys in Bankruptcy law, and serve their clients with the highest ethical standards. I give them each a hearty endorsement.
