Christie Dee Arkovich and her team were very helpful and attentive in handling my foreclosure and later on, my bankruptcy case. Christie was referred to me by a friend who is also an attorney. We worked mostly over the phone as we are in different cities and the phone meetings were easy to schedule and they take time to make sure you understand the legal process. Email and phone communication for any further questions was always offered and answered, taking a lot of stress out of the process. She and her professional staff were always friendly and welcoming when I did visit the office. They are thorough and they even offer great services for many financial experiences and look for programs to further help clients even after their cases are finalized. They appreciate feedback and experiences and extend that to future customers where it is helpful. I am glad I was referred to her, as these daunting experiences were made much easier with her and her team!

Christie did an awesome job getting me straightened out with my student loans! I had been in trouble with them and trying to make payments for years, and finally was about to give up. Trying to negotiate with the collectors was so hard, and Christie answered a lot of my questions right up front, and knew her stuff. Christie's team took care of everything and got me on a federal student-loan forgiveness/rehab program, so I'm finally not in default anymore! I would recommend them to anybody who needs a lawyer!

I consulted with Christie regarding a foreclosure on my deceased parents estate. I was interested in shortselling the home to a childhood friend. Only problem we had less than a month to sort through and figure everything out. Christie postponed the sale date immediately then her and her staff went in and negotiated all the way until the day hour i mean literally down to the minute during closing to make what I was trying to do happen in which she was successful! Even with a bank that was rejecting declining and refusing to work anything out with me before hiring Christie. Christie was professional informative and responded pretty fast with great ending results.
Her fees were very reasonable and I woudnt hesitate to refer her to anyone and I definitely will let her represent me again if ever need it.

Christie was a superb attorney I am 63. And widowed and was severely in student. Loan debt She was so helpful to me. She knew everything to do and eased my mind . I would never have thought that anyone could get me out of debt especially 78,,000 worth of loans she really was great. Thank you so very much for making my life so much easier and less stressful.

After years, literally, of fighting vultures alone I conceded to the legal help I desperately needed. Within a very short time I found myself at the closure and outcome I had been praying for.
I needed someone to take over a mess I could not escape and 'save me', frankly. Attorney Arkovich did just that. She and her team have been my saving grace and I am forever grateful for that.
While no one can guarantee a victory - and I stress that she never did that because I've heard stories of other lawyers promising the moon and delivering old cheese - I feel I was in good hands during this ordeal. What she did promise was to be my ally every step of the way and I feel she delivered.
Most importantly, if things hadn't gone my way, I believe that I would still be able to recommend her as council to anyone lost in this intricacies of our legal system. From our first meeting I felt very at-ease with the process and steps to come. I knew what was expected of me and, for the first time since being served, felt like I wasn't alone. That may not be important to everyone but, to me, it was everything.
Should you find yourself, as I did, thinking about getting professional help on a problem beyond your scope, I strongly recommend this attorney. It's no-risk; high reward for those who might need a helping hand.

During the 2008 economic meltdown, I retained Ms Arkovich to defend my wife and me against a wrongful foreclosure action. It took 7 years of her efforts to get the case to hearing, after which the judge ruled in our favor, dismissed the case without prejudice, and ordered our attorney fees to be paid by the loser bank, in 2015. Following the appeal of the Bartram case and renewed threats of foreclosure against us, and at our request, Ms. Arkovich applied for a non-recourse loan modification for us. This took another 9 months, but she achieved total success. Her repeated legal efforts, for nearly 8 years now, have enabled me to keep my wife in our home, to recover financially--and to sleep well again, knowing that our mortgage payments are now affordable, that our home will indeed remain "ours", and that our 8-year-long ordeal of foreclosure hell is now closed for good and behind us forever. I give her highest ratings for: Intelligence, Legal Experience, Courtroom Presence, Professionalism, Ethics, Accessibility, Responsiveness, Empathy and Understanding of a client's plight and needs. I recommend her without reservation to anyone seeking a defense attorney with these traits, which were consistently proven to me during nearly 8 years as her client.

Christie Arkovich negotiated with private student loan companies on my behalf. The results of her efforts have had a very positive effect on my quality of life. She was able to reduce my debt by 50% and allow me manageable payments. I am grateful for her help in getting through this challenge.

I cannot say enough about Christie and her team. They are fantastic. Christie was our first consult and we knew after speaking with her we need look no further. They helped us through a very difficult set of circimstances and helped set us back on track to a sustainable existence.

I first contacted Christie in 2011 for a free 30 min. consultation about filing bankruptcy options. I am self employed massage therapist. I witness my clients going through financial troubles and unable to make their appointments since 2009. A few even faced foreclosures but I felt the economy will get better I will ride the wave. I will be okay but I was in denial for years. I needed to find out my option so I search late at night on the internet and I saw Christie write up and more importantly I saw a place to fill out to explain my situation. Writng my situation I felt a crying release because I just share my situation for the first time to anyone. I was nervous when Christie called for my free consultation she lay out my options on what I could do immediately and what I could do if I waited to file Bankruptcy. I was so nervous but Christie voice calm me that I was not alone. At that time I had told no one of my financial crisis. Most individuals especially caregivers keep personal things inward, we do not want to burden people, we are caring for them, and again I was hopeful the economy would turn around.
One option for me was to liquidate my assets and wait to file if I needed to file. The other option was to file now. I elected to sell my stocks I had for retirement. Again I was still in hopeful that the economy would recover. Christie and her wondeful staff especially Angie my champion took my calls and emails for the next three years whenever I had a concern about my mortgage company chaos. I could not face filing bankruptcy at the same time I was mentally exhausted with doing my streamline loan. Christie and Angie brought be peaceful assurance that there is light at the end of the tunnel, a fresh start. I finally filed my bankruptcy in 2014. I exhausted all funds and the economy was not improving . I was so thankful that the court trustee agreed and allowed me to make payments to buy my asset (vehicle) back. I know this review is long but I believe there are alot of individuals who are in or have been in a similiar situation feeling alone and not communicating their financial situation to anyone, not knowing what to do, and needing a knowledgable, compassionate, legal team to help them through one of the most difficult time in their lives. I appreciate Christe, Angie, and the staff for being there for me and I know they can be there for you.
