Excellent counsel
As we struggled through a very difficult time with another lawyer, we chose to transfer our case to the office of Freire and Gonzalez. This office demonstrated expertise and professionalism throughout their dealings with us.Their competence saved us thousands of dollars. How much? We will never know. But due to their thoroughness with documentation, the outcome to our bankruptcy ,chapter13, was better than we had ever expected. They communicated to us clearly and confidently in terms that lay people understand. All the while, never once, judging any decision we made that may have lead us to a bankruptcy. From the start It was evident that the office staff worked very well together and had our best interest in mind. In a city with hundreds of incompetent lawyers, we are truly blessed and grateful that we chose to transfer our case to this office.
