Chapter 7
I was left with an enormous amount of debt due to a terrible divorce. Mrs. Footman provided me with the best solution given the current circumstances. The consultation provided me with great insight regarding the Chapter 7 and what the future could hold. Thank you Mrs. Footman!

Absolutely fabulous lawyer and firm
I contacted a couple of law firms and spoke with the lawyers, and felt my best choice was the Footman Law Firm. The way my lawyer, India Footman, took me under her wing, eased my mind and explained the process, made me feel confident in her. Her assistant, Angela, was wonderful and also made herself available to me, if I had questions. India was professional, straight forward and had my bankruptcy completed in less than 2 months. You will be very pleased, by working with this law firm.

Great experience
I hired Ms. Footman for a chapter 13 bankruptcy. She helped me save my home. I’m forever thankful. She’s very easy to talk to, compassionate, and understanding. I would recommend her to anyone going through a similar situation.

Professional, Honest, Understanding, and a very helpful Lawyer
I am very pleased with Ms Footman. I came to her almost 2 years ago and paid her $1000.00 and at the time I was unaware of my health problems and I was very scared I was loose my money that I paid her. But after contacting her and letting her know that I had surgeries coming up, she assured me that when I was ready she would move forward with filing my chapter 7 bankruptcy. I finally was ready a year and several months later and she did exactly what she said without hesitation. I would definitely recommend her Services to anyone looking for a honest, affordable, professional lawyer. The ladies in office are always so nice and helpful too! Thank you Ms Footman for all your help and understanding.

Professional, Compassionate & Efficient!
Ms. Footman knows that you are in her office because it is not your best day. She is compassionate to her clients feelings and performs her work very fast and efficient. She had to go to court on my case several times and she was amazing! She answers calls and emails quickly. There is a reason she is the best bankruptcy attorney in Tallahassee. I was lucky I found her and very happy she took my case. Thank you! I would recommend India Footman to everyone in need of her services as they won't be disappointed.

Highly recommended!
Still in the middle of my bankruptcy but honestly she has made this the best experience for my husband and I. She is patient friendly and understanding. She certainly goes above and beyond for her clients. We were blessed to discover her. All of our fears and uncertainty about the future have been lessened due to her professionalism and hard work.

Personable, Caring, and Genuine
I have never met an Attorney who takes care of her clients the way Attorney Footman does. She has now become my Lawyer for anything that needs her expertise. I have been with her for a few years now, and will stay with her for as long as possible.

Succeeded Expectations
I was referred to Attorney India Footman by my co-worker. Ms. Footman wonderful to work with. She handled my case with professionalism and everything went smooth and super quick. She spent a good amount of time with me during my initial consultation, answered all my questions, etc. She told me what to expect during my bankruptcy. Ms. Footman and her staff made me feel so much better. He painlessly guided me through what was a very tough situation for me. Our paperwork was flawless. I would strongly recommend Ms. Footman to anyone and everyone.

Poor Poor Poor
I hired this attorney for a matter she claimed to have expertise in. She does not look in the best interest of her clients. She misses deadlines to file with paperwork with the courts leaving the client with no option since the timeline to file with the court expired. She has poor communication and claims she has done things that were absolutely not done. She lacks the skill to rebut your case and again not looking in the client's best interest. So she dropped the proverbial ball and has no concern. I would not recommend this attorney to anyone. She does not contact you or keep you up to date on your case and does not look in the best interest of her clients. Stay away! You don't need an attorney who again misses timelines to file papers with the court leaving the client in a very bad situation. Do yourself a favor steer clear. That's my opinion what's in the best interest of any future client that is contemplating retaining this attorney. Very very poor.

Frustrated!!!!!
After many many attempts. Calls, emails, trying every way possible to contact Mrs. Footman there has been NO contact made. Every time I try to contact her at every number I have I get a message that the mailbox is full and then the call hangs up. I am on a deadline because one of the credit cards she was supposed to be handling has filed a lawsuit against me and I was served with a summons. However as the days draw short for the 20 days I had to ddeal with it I have yet to hear from Mrs. India Footman. She has already been paid and has all my information but now it looks as though somehow even though I have no income or way to pay for it I will have to find a new attorney. Very upset by this.

Response from India Footman January 17, 2018
This has been a problem client from the start. This client hired me in May 2016 to file her bankruptcy. All of the bankruptcy documents was completed and ready to be filed. This client had tons of issues outside of debt and felt comfortable enough to reach out to me for advice and I was very sympathetic to hers needs and suggested counseling. I spent a few hours trying to motivate her and lead her in the right direction. Within a few days, this client was calling and texting me at inappropriate times with issue after issue (not bankruptcy related), begging for loans, asking for a portion of the money already paid for the bankruptcy to be refunded. This client ended up in jail a few weeks later accused of attempted bank robbery . During this time, she called me from jail numerous times, her mother was constantly calling, included me a family group text regarding her incarceration (I was not her criminal attorney). This went on for a least a year. I stopped responding and answering the calls but maintain professionalism with her mother when she provided status updates and told me that she still intended to move forward with the bankruptcy. Once the client was released, she contacted me to proceed with filing (1 1/2 years later). This required an entirely new bankruptcy filing, I did not charge her anything additional as a courtesy, not to mention she moved 5 hours away, I would've had to file in another court, and drive down to be present at the 341 meeting. She indicated to me that she was still not ready to file, but continued to call. Last week, she received a summons for one of the accounts to be included in the bankruptcy and called me at least 15 times the next day and sent numerous emails and messages because now, the matter has become her urgency. I was not available on that day which was a Friday. I emailed her on Monday, still willing to assist her and ask that she send me proper documentation to move forward. Her response was that she still wasn't ready to file due to projected upcoming medical expenses that she wanted to include in the bankruptcy.....???? There's nothing more I can do for this client. Maybe someone else will be of better assistance. I've gone above and beyond.

Charges for work not performed.
I hired India Footman to do a chapter 7. I was making payments for the retainer and in the process my circumstances changed and no longer needed to file. I asked for some sort off refund since the chapter 7 never got filed. She refused I tried to compromise so it would be fair for both of us. She told me to file a complaint with the Florida Bar assoc so that is what I'm doing. I'm also filing a lawsuit for the refund. This is just to inform people.

Response from India Footman February 20, 2017
I was hired by this client to file a chapter 7 bankruptcy in December 2015. Client had been making payments towards the retainer fee for at least 14 months. Upon receiving a very small down payment from client in December 2015, I immediately began working on client's bankruptcy. I successfully negotiated with client's financial institution for the surrender of certain collateral and retention of certain collateral although on cross-collaterized accounts. This is a services usually performed after the bankruptcy is filed but as a courtesy to the client, I immediately began negotiations since client had multiple items of collateral at stake of loss. Once an agreement was reached, I organized the surrender of the collateral and remained in contact with the financial institution for over a year regarding client's loans assuring the bank that client was still filing as the agreement to retain and surrender certain property was contingent on client actually filing bankruptcy. A week ago, client decided not to file and seem to think that since he did not move forward with the bankruptcy that the partial retainer fee paid was not earned although client has utilized my services for well over a year (much longer than the duration of a standard chapter 7 bankruptcy).
