Good Bankruptcy Attorneys
Herman and Russo represented us in a Chapter 7 recently, and they did a great job of explaining the process to us, letting us know what to expect, and providing additional information and guidance even after our discharge. It's not a "fun" experience to go through a bankruptcy proceeding, but having someone that returned calls and emails with reasonable explanations that we could understand made a tough time in our lives bearable. Something that continues to impress me is that they still respond in a timely manner to inquiries even though our case was finalized months ago. We really appreciated their guidance, and if you find yourself facing a bankruptcy, I would recommend them.

Great service, Good People, Highly Recommend
Filing for bankruptcy is never an easy thing-getting the correct information, sorting through the myths and unknowns, and mentally coming to terms that you need help, etc. Having Melissa and Dave represent me made all those things non-issues. They specialize in bankruptcy and understand that filing for bankruptcy is not an easy decision to make. They know that no one wants to file and that most people filing are good and honest people who hit a roadblock of some kind. After my first meeting, I felt so much more at ease. I was beyond comfortable with their knowledge and experience and they could not have made me feel more comfortable with my tough decision as to whether to file. I needed the help that bankruptcy would provide and they let me know it was okay to seek that help. Dave and Melissa were both easy to speak with and were responsive whenever I had a question. I have since recommended them to several people who have likewise felt the same. I highly recommend Herman & Russo and appreciate the excellent job they did on my case.

David Russo
David and his partner Melissa were very thorough in reviewing our options and helping us select the appropriate bankruptcy to file. They handled a couple unexpected curveballs expertly and shielded us from most of the theatrics that occur. I believe they saved us from paying $3,000 to $6,000 to keep one of our cars through their expert handling of our Trustee. Our casse was settled quickly and efficiently. I recommend Dave and Melissa to anyone in need of bankruptcy counsel.
