Mr. Nowack handled my case very well at the meeting with the Trustee on every situation that came along with this case of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, he's a very professional and knowledgeable attorney. I highly recommend him.
Thank you Mr. Nowack.

Mitch handled my first chpt 13 which was very scary for me (now I am a pro). For some reason I got myself in a hole again when the economy changed for the worst. He welcomed me with open arms never looking down on me...always understanding, professional, available, informative and upfront. He doesnt tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear.

Hired Mid 2013, and finalized 8 months later. Mitchell was recommended to me by an acquaintance. He is Professional, knowledgeable and most of all patient. I may have asked him 200 questions, of which he answer 150 prior to hiring him and remainder during case. (I'm sure he thought I was nuts, I needed to cover all angles, based from my research into take this course). He was frank, honest and prompted with every inquiry and via email - very convenient. Of all the lawyers I interviewed, he was the most open and realist in his answers.
My case , was strategic default, such that I could restructure secure assets, I have no insecure debt. Basically give back the bank a property (not primary) that was 90% upside down , which they would not work with me to bring down principal , and issue the loss to me or allow a deed-in-leu with deficiency waiver. So, a sacrifice of credit now , saves me 120k , something I could not save or work over the remain time of loan. Sometime you have to Just cut your losses, and start again. Thank you Mitchell .

I have known Mitchell for many years and hold him in the highest regard within the bankruptcy bar. He is sensitive and understanding to his client's needs, a great advocate either in court proceedings or negotiations with adverse parties, and well- versed in the law and rights and remedies of parties. He also has a practical approach, not found in many of his peers.
