The purpose of this letter is to formally and publicly commend attorney James W. Elliott for the excellent representation he provided me throughout my home foreclosure/ chapter 13 bankruptcy. In my opinion the level of service extended to me was far beyond my expectations. I have never before written a letter like this one on an entirely unsolicited basis. However, in this case in this case I was so impressed by the support from attorney Elliott and his staff that I felt compelled to go on record with my praise. These people truly deserve it.
