Made the process easy & calm for a novice
When I contacted Josh regarding my case, I not only felt dumb but ashamed to have gotten to a point where I needed help with a bankruptcy. I spoke to him and he explained all of my options. He made me feel at ease and that it was okay...things happen. For me, bankruptcy was the best course of action. . I need to know everything that happens in a process to not get anxious. He and his office explained everything in great detail, answered all of my questions. They were willing to work with me with payments. I knew what to expect when everything was done. I am so thankful I found them. Thanks to the whole team for helping me get a new start.

Fantastic experience
From start to finish Josh and his team made the chapter 7 process painless. With so much stress already on your plate for being in this position in the first place, you need to have somebody who really knows what they are doing. That’s Josh.

Super Attorney.
I dont even know how to describe Dr. Patel and his team. Very different than what I was expecting. I went with my father to make sure his consultation went through without any funny business and Dr. Patel (Petel?) took care of us. Within the first 60 seconds, I knew my father was making the right decisions. Patel, on his own got us a fresh cup of coffee, brought his puppy to us (i think he said coco/paco? was its name) and explained his background and family history. Made me realize immediately that he was on our side and not just out to make a quick dollar. I've never met an attorney like him (we tried another one who tried to rip my dad off). I'm glad my dad moved forward and when I need his services (hopefully not soon) I'll use him too.

Best Bankruptcy Firm in town
The staff is amazing. I did a consult with a Mr. Petel, he was compassionate, easy going and even suggested I try and handle things on my own so I can save some funds. When I realized I was too far in the hole to handle it on my own, he welcomed me with open arms and a hot cup of coffee. His style, communications and ability to keep the situation organized helped me immensely. The rest of the staff was amazing from the office manager to the other attorney's, the entire office was pleasant to deal with and even offered a payment plan. They did things for free others would charge me an arm and leg for.

Our property was in foreclosure and we declared bankruptcy. Joshua helped us with every step of the way to make the transition smooth and less stress free as we went through a very difficult time in our lives. He was always available to answer our concerns and questions. Very quick to respond. Actually went beyond the call of duty. Also reasonable fee. Would highly recommend.

Sharp, Informative, and Courteous Professional
Attorney Josh Tejes was very courteous and responsive to all my questions about my case. He very clearly described a range of options available to me -- in a way that made me feel comfortable and in control. I highly recommend him and his courteous staff.

Awesome attorney for an amazing job!
We had a dispute with our HOA that has spanned several years. We attempted working with them with no luck. They insisted their position was correct, despite evidence that we demonstrated. So we sought an attorney when they tried to foreclose on our home for all the fees they tacked onto our dues. Mr. Tejes listened to our case, asked tons of questions, and became our attorney. He pushed the attorneys. He told us what documents we needed, and worked in our behalf to challenge HOA's claims. As the case progressed, we discovered that our evidence only proved part of our case. So while we could win, there were several scenarios in which we would have to pay part of what they claimed. In Mr. Tejes efforts, he found unique case law that had recently changed that gave us another way for us to win. He drafted the necessary paperwork and sent it to their attorneys. It was nearly instantaneous, their anger. They issued threats and documents. However, they knew they had no case. Within just a few weeks, we received a call from Mr. Tejes that they had dropped their pursuit, and we were able to wipe out the unsubstantiated debt. About three months after Mr. Tejes had told us about the way the law had changed, giving us the way out we needed, I was listening to an attorney talk show on the radio. He was telling a caller about a new law, and how it would help his case. How it would change everything, and it was totally new. Thing was, MY ATTORNEY knew it THREE MONTHS ahead of this guy. Now THAT'S an attorney YOU need on YOUR side!!! :)

Administrative Woes
What an unbelievably rude administrative staff. I was referred to this law office and after three attempts to speak with Mr. Tejes, on three separate occasions, never made it past his staff. With nearly 100,000 licensed legal professionals in the Orlando area, I strongly advise you seek a firm other than this one. If the level of courtesy of the staff answering the phone and email is any indicator of the level of service or detail provided on a legal issue, then it is best you seek help elsewhere.
