Absolutely Solid Bankruptcy Attorney
Bankruptcy is not an easy thing to go through, but having a knowledgeable, dependable, helpful, tenacious attorney to lead the way makes the experience a lot easier to handle. Things were done correctly the first time and the process was expedited extremely efficiently. I would recommend Lynda Jones to anyone in need of a bankruptcy attorney.

Helpful and knowledgeable
We went into Ms Jones' office not knowing what we needed to do or where to even start. She and her office staff took care of us from beginning to end. They explained our options and offered suggestions regarding our situation. Emails were answered immediately and we never felt rushed when we had a ton of questions. I highly recommend Lynda Jones to anyone considering bankruptcy.

Knowledgable and Kind
Lynda, and her staff, were very kind and respectful during my bankruptcy process. Lynda was very understanding of my situation and took the time to answer all of my questions and presented me with the options that best suited my needs. She did such a great job that I recommended her to two aquaintances that also used her and had an experience equal to mine.
