exceptional Lawyer!!!!!!!!!!!
I was hesitating about filing bankruptcy, Stacey Butler, Lionel Kennedy and staff from the Law Group made it very easy and comforting for me. Even though , I had a small issue, they helped me to find the way. They are very prompt to answer any question, I would say they are extremely professional. They gave me hope during the whole process. I did not feel I had a lawyer, I can say I had a friend. I WOULD RECOMMEND STACEY BUTLER TO ANY ONE WHO NEEDS HER SERVICE!!!!!!!!!!!! Yo dude en file bancarrota. Stacey Butler and Lionel Kennedy y todo el equipo del Grupo de Abogados hicieron el proceso mas llevadero, confiable y facil para mi. Aunque tuve un pequeno problemita mientras estaba en el proceso, ellos lo resolvieron . Son muy rapidos para contestar cualquier email o llamada telefonica, siempre con mucho profesionalismo. Me dieron mucha confianza durante el proceso que no senti que tenia un abogado, sino un amigo en quien confiar. LOS RECOMENDARIA A CUALQUIER PERSONA QUE NECESITE SUS SERVICIOS!!!!!!!!

I formally and publicly commend Stacey Lynn Butler & Staff for the excellent service they provided to me. In my opinion, the level of service that Ms. Butler extended to me was far beyond my expectations. Ms. Butler extended her service pro bono still treating me like a paying client. Really demonstrated a lot.The process did not take long at all. However, in this case I was so impressed by the support and service provide by Ms.Butler her communications specialists that I felt compelled to go on record with my praise. These people truly deserve it. In an era where exceptional one-to-one customer service excellence has virtually disappeared from our industry, the work that Ms. Butler and her team did should be held up as an example for others to try to emulate. Really Ms. Butler very personable and really cares about the situation at hand. I never worried she was all ways very informative and very knowledgeable and answer every question with a pleasant smile. I have to say it was like a Angel sent to me . I did not have money to afford services . So by her donating her services really help me from sleepless nights, Then even going step further putting in a motion for the courts to waives they fees as well. I was walk to the process with every question answer. Every phone calls all ways answer on the same day . The staff is so friendly and took time out to walk to the process as well. I highly recommended Ms. Stacey Lynn Butler so well grounded other words down to earth. Again I want to thank her again and the staff for the lovely work.

A blessing!
Ms. Stacey and her crew were unbelievably good to us. Without researching we consulted another attorney first, that was the biggest mistake ever! After lots of searching and praying this is where we were led, and we are so thankful. We were not credit abusers, we simply lost an income so this decision was hard enough, but they treated us with such respect and care. I was literally shedding tears of relief just after speaking with Lionel to schedule an appt. Rocky was always ready and willing to help, and Ms Stacey herself is so down to earth and sincere. I think they only have a certain service area, otherwise I would recommend this group to anyone in need of a fantastic attorney.

A Life Changing Experience!
I kid you not, Stacey Butler changed my life! I went to Ms. Butler in July of 2012 with a case that I thought she wouldn't be able to help with. She got the debt collectors off of my back. They stopped calling and harassing me and I was even able to have my driver's license reinstated! Over a three month period I was able to make conveniently scheduled payments to pay for her services. Ms. Butler was very professional, very personable and she helped me accomplish something that I had been attempting to accomplish for SEVERAL years(LICENSE!!! :) on my own unsucessfully due to my horrible financial situation. With her professional help and expertise, I was able to claim my financial freedom and start over! Thank you so much Ms. Butler!

An honest lawyer
When I first met with Ms. Butler, I was a nervous wreck and uncertain about my financial future. She assured me that every thing would be ok after looking at my situation. Her smile and cheerfulness also helped to put me at ease. She really knows her job! With her help, I can now sleep at nights. Thank you Ms. Butler

Read this only if you're looking for a really good lawyer who cares!
Ms. Butler was very professional and knowledgeable. Anytime I had a question, she was able to answer and when she wasn't sure, she did not guess. She found out the answer promptly and made sure I was prepared. I would recommend her service to anyone. Her entire staff was courteous and reassuring. We need more like her.

This was my very first time filing for bankruptcy and was afraid b/c of the stories that I had heard of in not being able to get credit for ten years. After surfing the web I contacted Attorney Stacey Lynn Butler. After explain my situation to her staff, they scheduled me an appointment right away. Attorney Stacey Lynn Butler and her staff were very friendly, caring, knowledgeable, responsive, and trustworthy. I was pleased to know that I could have my attorney fees deducted from my paycheck weekly instead of paying the entire fee upfront. They stopped the already in progress garnishment and got ALL of the money returned to me! After gathering all of the requested documents, I was given a court date. After the court date I received a letter from the judge approving my bankruptcy. I felt like a weight was lifted from my shoulders and I could start over again with rebuilding my credit. I would like to say to Attorney Stacey Lynn Butler and Staff....Thank you so much for a job well done!

Dale's First Legal Experience
This was my first time working with a Bankruptcy lawyer. Everything went very smoothly. Stacey helped me through the whole process every step of the way, from going through all the paper work, to meeting with a Trustee at the Courthouse. I would see her for more legal advice if I needed to.

Knowledgable and trustworthy
Stacey Butler helped my husband and I gain financial freedom. She was very upfront and even went beyond the call of duty when it came to our home. I will send others to her if there is a need.

When trying to support the black owed business of Stacy Lynn Butler
I was referred to Stacy Lynn Butler with an interest in bankruptcy options and I requested to speak with the person I was referred to for the FREE consultation. Never received the free consultation because of the office staff, but this review required I state whether I consulted with Stacey or if l hired her neither one happened. This gentleman named Lionel continued to interupt me while I was speaking only to refuse the request Wright was to speak with her. I alk if there was a better time he responds "never, but I can help!" I ask is there a better time for me to call back he responds "no, she doesn't come into the office, but I can help you" I ask are you an attorney he responds "No!, I politely ask " Is there another time to reach out to her, I'd really like to speak with the attorney recommended he responds just tell me what you need! I said thank you for your time and have a nice day. His tone was very very rude. This wasn't what I expected especially in the wake of me supporting black owed businesses. The behavior I experienced today just to speak with the attorney Stacey Lynn Butler was unacceptable and I won't ever support this behavior. As l know my need won't affect your business, I will never allow someone to represent me who doesn't have control of the hired help. He obviously runs this firm and and her too. so when asked would I recommend Attorney Stacey Lynn Butler NO I WOULD NOT!

Response from Stacey Butler September 15, 2020
Thank you for your review Ms. Walker. As with any business, be it black owned or not, there are policies and procedures that are followed. You did call and leave a voicemail at 8:01am on 9/14/20. You did say you were referred to Ms. Butler. I responded between 9-10am first by text message introducing myself and advising you that Stacey was out of the office but I would be happy to assist you. I also advised that we were tied up with court hearings but I would call as soon as possible. I called you as promised and left you a voicemail. You did call back and repeated that you were referred to Stacey. I again advised that she was unavailable, and again offered to help. Instead of accepting my help, you wanted to know when she would be in. I advised that due to c19, she would not be as we all worked remotely, but that again I could help. I tried to inform you that once we figured out why you were calling, and if bankruptcy could help, we would be happy to get you to Stacey. For most people, filing a bankruptcy is very stressful so I understand that some may be a bit high strung and a bit irritable. That is understandable. However, there is a process in this business as there are processes in anyone's place of business that need to be followed. Here, potential clients call and they get screened (referral or not) to see if their situation can be resolved with a bankruptcy or not. Once that is determined (and due to c19), documents are then sent in by the potential client, then we set up an appointment and at that time, that potential client will speak to either their preferred referral attorney or one randomly assigned. Either way, no non-client calls in and consults directly with an attorney. Similar policies exist in every business as it has in our business since inception. There is a reason why we have 19 5 star ratings here and A+ ratings on other sites. Alas, as much as we try, we realize that we cannot please everyone, but we will continue to strive to do so.
