Outstanding Bankruptcy Lawyer
In February of this year, my mother needed to find a bankruptcy lawyer-she does not have a computer so I hope that writing this on her behalf is acceptable, as she requested that I do so. Also, I was present with my mother during the entire process. I reviewed your site and luckily found Ms Salas. We scheduled an appointment and my mother had a free consultation that lasted well over an hour. Ms Salas was so compassionate, empathetic, patient, and professional. She explained the entire process thoroughly and greatly eased my mother's anxiety. The day of the court appearance, she met personally with both of us to explain what to expect next. All went well, and it was a relief to walk out of the court. Truly, Ms Salas is wonderful. We also highly commend her paralegal, Jason Stalcup, for his professionalism and availability to answer any questions They make a terrific team. If you live in the Nashville area and need a bankruptcy lawyer, make an appointment with Ms Salas.

Made a very stressful situation easier
I had to make the very difficult decision to file bankruptcy. I called other offices to schedule appointments or get preliminary advice, but the people I spoke with made me feel like I was a horrible person for having financial problems. However, Ms. Salas and her staff did not make me feel this way. They explained to me that sometimes people need a fresh start and that bankruptcy could help me obtain that. Thank you to the Salas Law Group for helping me get back on my feet.
