Helpful and compassionate through the whole process
Mr. Roberts helped our adult son through a very difficult bankruptcy where our son didn't know where to turn. His candor and compassion through the process were exceptional, he ensured our son knew that this was not the end of the world, and that people recover from going through the process. Almost two years AFTER the bankruptcy was finished, our son needed help getting transcripts from the college that was part of the bankruptcy, and Mr. Lewis responded within an hour to the request for help. In a world where businesses completely forget the client service after the fact, Mr. Lewis stands out above the rest. Thank you so much for your help

Excellent!!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!
Working with Mr. Roberts was a great experience. We have tried so many times to work with our student loan people with absolutely no success....it just kept snowballing out of control. Mr. Roberts is very knowledgeable and walked us through all of our options and the process. For the first time, I actual felt like it was possible to manage my student loans. I am finally able to sleep again. Thank you!

Attorney Roberts Review
The BEST Bankruptcy Attorney!!! One day my husband and I found ourselves in financial difficulties, not able to make ends meet. We tried working it out by ourselves but kept on running into difficulty. We sought help but were not satisfied with the outcome. So we decided that the best way to change our status was to contact a Bankruptcy Attorney. We were lucky to find Attorney Lewis Roberts. After Lewis assessed our situation and consulted with us, we agreed that filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy was the best way to go. We hired Attorney Lewis and it was the best decision we ever made. He was with us every step of the way. Under his supervision and after 5 years of complying with the Bankruptcy Plan we have found financial stability again. Those five years taught us to be more attentive and cautious of how we managed our finances and for that we TRULY thank Lewis. I recommend Attorney Lewis Roberts to anyone who is in Financial Debt and is not able to resolve it on their own.

Honest and Nonjudgmental
I found myself with financial issues and was buried with debt after my job of 20 years shut the doors and unexpected health issues. Deciding I needed to file bankruptcy I went looking for attorney. I choose Lewis Roberts as my bankruptcy attorney because he has an honest nonjudgmental face. He was compassionate with my feelings and assured me everything would be OK. He made the process very easy and was available with any questions I had. I was able to communicate with him in person, by email and phone. I highly recommend Mr. Roberts. If I ever found myself needing any type of legal assistance I would defiantly reach out to him first for advisement.

Excellent Attorney!!
I have been a client of Lewis Roberts for almost 2 years now. I went to him with an overwhelming amount of private student loan debt. Navient would not negotiate with me. I had monthly payments over $2300 a month. Simply impossible. Lewis Roberts was able to negotiate on my behalf and settle on a MUCH more reasonable payment plan. I highly recommend Lewis Roberts to anyone going through financial hardship. The best part of being his client is his quick response to calls and e-mails. In my almost 2 years as his client, I received a same day response to any call or e-mail I made to him 100% of the time. Often times within 15 minutes of my request. I don't think you will find an attorney that will provide you the type of service, respect, and quality advise that Lewis Roberts can. Thank you Lewis for helping me through this difficult time in my life. I am truly grateful I found your office when I did.

GREAT to Work With!!! Looks Out for You!
When we went to Lewis we had very little knowledge of what we were getting into and we were really nervous, not to mention a little ashamed of having to reach out for help. He was very attentive to our needs, dealt powerfully with our circumstances and quickly made us comfortable with the process and our options. Once we settled in to a Plan he continuously looked out for anything that changed in our situation that would allow for additional adjustments to help us out. Was it easy, no...AND without him looking out for us, would have been A LOT harder. THANK YOU Lewis for helping us get our life back on track!

Chapter 7
Atty Lewis Roberts is a fantastic bankruptcy lawyer. First he does not charge exorbitant fee. Second he is a nice pleasant person and is willing to listen to your concerns and answers them all specifically. When I emailed him with questions I would get a fast response and you will not second guess on his answers. And the most important thing is you will directly deal with him all throughout the process and not with a paralegal or assistant. I had my Ch7 discharged without a hitch in 2 months time. Thank you Atty Lewis Roberts! You are the best!

Professional very ethical attorney
I came to Mr. Roberts overwhelmed and stressed out. He was very reassuring, he made me feel comfortable and was very patient in answering every question. He explained every step from beginning to end for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case and was successful even though my case was complex. He and his staff are very knowledgeable and effective and he makes a point of updating you on every aspect to the very end. I will recommend Mr. Roberts without hesitation to everyone.

Excellent
Very pleased as a client. This was my second attempt for my case and I was not pleased with first attorney primarily because I could never reach the guy & none of my questions were responded too. Lewis Roberts however was courteous and professional and answered all my questions simply and promptly. His whole staff and team were very helpful throughout the whole process. Very satisfied customer. I would highly recommend Lewis Roberts to anyone.

A True Professional
Lewis Roberts helped me in my bankruptcy case, which was unique as it involved discharging student debt. With great integrity he did his research first, before taking on the case, finding precedent to make sure the debt could be discharged to begin with. Very sociable, he did a great job of answering my questions, as well as explaining to me the nuances of student debt and bankruptcy laws, giving me a range of options I had in handling it. He went out of his way to coordinate between the school and myself to handle important details. A true professional, I would without a doubt recommend Attorney Roberts, and I greatly appreciate his help.

Fantastic lawyer for resolving private student loans
I defaulted on my private student loan due to unforeseeable circumstances and was sued. Attorneys Lewis Roberts and Jonathan Paul defended the suit for me and got the entire case dismissed. I owe no money to lender now. I am so grateful I found these attorneys; they are literally allowing me to begin my life again without an enormous ($40k) judgment hanging over my head. They were helpful, courteous and took the time to answer all of my questions, while guiding me through what was (to me) a scary process. They were always available by email and/or phone. I can't say enough positive things about them and would highly, highly recommended them if you are having debt/student loan issues. And, did I mention, they won the case?!!

Excellent Lawyer Experience
A friend had recommended Mr. Roberts when I needed to file bankruptcy. I recently had a negative attorney experience, so I was a little hesitant. Immediately after my first meeting with Lewis, I knew I was in good hands. He explained the entire process, guided me with all my questions and made a difficult situation manageable. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and was always looking out for my best interest. What a concept! We did encounter a challenge towards the end (related to a separate prior divorce). Lewis went the extra mile for me and resolved what could have been a major problem. That's when you know you're in the right hands! Needless to say, it is with total confidence that I can say Lewis Roberts will be the best decision you can make!

Amazing lawyer
Lewis was an amazing and patient lawyer. We had a complicated case due to moving from a different state and he took the time to help answer any questions we had and was on top of all issues and was always available for questions.
