Made Chapter 13 a less daunting process
Carol explained the process in detail and guided us through each step. She always answered our questions and explained any next steps, completely. She made the process less daunting for us and we recommend her to anyone encountering the same situation. The personal touch makes a difference.

She is kind and personable while being extremely knowledgeable and professional. Carol explained everything step by step making sure that I completely understood. I appreciated her patience and guidance.

Simply put - she’s the best
Carol respects that no one wants/expects to be in a bankruptcy situation. She treated me w/both kindness, respect, and professionalism. After a divorced, trying to keep all the plates spinning in the air was overwhelming. Carol guided me through the entire process. She is an ally when you need one the most!

Amazing and worth every penny!
Mrs. Colliersmith is worth every penny! She explained every step and process. My first bankruptcy was with her husband and my second with her. She is extremely professional, and she knows her judges and courts. She

I was scared and Carol took care of me!
Carol was an amazing lawyer to work with. She was attentive to me and my case, I felt like her only client. She made the process so easy to understand and was so easy to just talk to. Most of all, it was great to have someone in my corner who wanted me to have a fresh start just as much as I did. Highly Recommended!!!

Made a painful decision the right decision
I had health issues and couldn't keep up with all my bills. I was on time with everything but when I lost my job I just couldn't make it work anymore. Carol was great throughout the process from the initial consultation to the day she called and told me that I had gotten my discharge. She was quick to return phone calls and emails, and always answered any questions that I had during the process.

Professional and Straight!
Hiring Carol Colliersmith was one of the best decisions I have made. She was referred to me by a friend. She helped me with the filing of my Chapter 7. I was nervous and embarrassed and she was nothing but understanding, honest, comforting, informative and STRAIGHT! Exactly what I wanted and needed. She is ALWAYS available when I have questions and I have never felt like I was missing anything in the process. Absolutely the best! I can't thank her enough for all she has done for me.

My experience with Carol Colliersmith
Carol helped me through my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I could not have asked for anyone more professional and hard working; and genuinely kind at the same time. There’s never been a time when she has not responded to my questions or concerns. Even after my bankruptcy was discharged, she has stayed in touch. I can go to her with any questions or concerns and she is always available to help. What else can I say but thank you, thank you, thank you for helping me get my life back!

Outstanding!
Carol handled my Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and she was amazing to work with. She made a very stressful and personal situation feel like it was just another day in my life. There are not enough positive words to describe how much I appreciated her, and the job she did. She was easy to talk with, always made me feel like I was her only client, never rushed. She responded quickly to any emails and/or calls. If you need an attorney who is always there for you, hire Carol Colliersmith.

Confident. Professional.
First time filing and not sure what to expect and a Combat Vet with PTSD Carol checked all the boxes thoroughly. She laid out a course of action and followed it with extreme precision. She would keep in touch with me often. This was reassuring for me. A true professional. Thanks

Incredible!
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.

Extremely helpful!
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!

Excellent Personal and Proffessional
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.

Very happy young family
The kindnesses and guidance that Carol and Rob showed us, from our consultation to our "you made it!" email, was unmatched. This process, as nerve-wrecking as it can be, could not have been made more seamless or smooth with, who we feel, any other team of professionals. We now rejoice in being able to start anew without worrying about which bills could be moved or delayed until the next paycheck. We are truly now in charge of our finances and plan to make the most educated monetary decisions for us and our children. Carol is fabulous. She answered all of our many emails and even contacted our more persistent debtors when we were confused as to why we were still receiving correspondences. Rob, more laid-back but incredibly knowledgeable, made prepping us and actually going to court enjoyable, as opposed to a dreadful event, and completely stood up for us and for all young adults struggling to pay student loans. We give a 100% recommendation to the Colliersmiths.

Carol Colliersmith = excellent attorney and counselor
If you’re looking for a knowledgeable and wise bankruptcy attorney, look no further. Carol Colliersmith is terrific. At a time when we thought our financial life was falling apart, she gave excellent guidance through the heartache of bankruptcy. As a legal assistant for close to 30 years, I have worked with many attorneys and Carol is by far, one of the best. She encouraged us, but more importantly, gave us sound advice that led to our financial healing and fresh start. I recommend her to anyone facing this difficult time in their life, I honestly don’t think you could find a better attorney to handle your bankruptcy.

Client
Carol handled my case last year and I couldn't have asked for more. She was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The case went well and went as quickly as it could. She still follows up with me today. Also, if I still have a question or need support she still returns with an answer.

Working with the Colliersmiths
I can't say enough good things about Carol Colliersmith. Carol is a compassionate, caring person who has a delightful sense of humor. She has worked very closely with us over the past 3 years on our Chapter 13. I would highly recommend the firm if you find yourself in debt trouble.
