Evicted non paying renters
Ms. Brooks helped me with evicting non paying tenants. She was very knowledgeable about the steps to be taken. Happily, she was also very responsive to my calls and emails. It was a great relief to have her guidance.

Competent and Considerate
Brenda Brooks represented me in my Chapter 13 case. After hiring her, I ran into one financial difficulty after another including major medical bills after suffering a stroke. Through all my issues, Brenda and her paralegal, Ed, were always professional, courteous, and competent. They no doubt spent many hours helping me find the best solution to my situation, and I was always treated with the utmost respect and consideration. I would highly recommend Brenda to anyone facing bankruptcy.

Brothers who are grateful for Brenda Brooks.
My brother and I were in massive debt. We both decided to go to Brenda Brooks. She is unbelievably smart, capable, and efficient from A-Z. No one has to worry about anything when you hire her. There is no way we could have taken care of all the paperwork and documents ourselves. She gets the job done! She is also sincerely compassionate about saving you from greedy banks and corporations. Brenda has a big heart and will fight for you! She gave us a second chance at a quality life. I am still grateful we found her. We highly recommend Brenda for anyone who is considering filing bankruptcy. She will take care of you and get your life back. There is no one better than her!!! Thank you Brenda!!!! We love you!!! Thank you! Thank you!!!

Excellent representation
Brenda did a wonderful job! She clearly explained the bankruptcy process from beginning to end so that I would know what to expect at every step of the process. She was also extremely knowledgeable about the federal and state exemptions. In addition, she was compassionate and professional. I would highly recommend Brenda Brooks to anyone that is in need of a bankruptcy lawyer.

Outstanding and Smart
I met Ms. Brooks a little over a year ago while going through my ex-husbands bankruptcy. I found out quickly that she is attentive and knowledgeable in her field of practice. She offers logical advice and explains things to her clients so that they understand this sometimes complicated process. She has always been timely with her responses and fair in her requests. I would recommend Ms. Brooks highly and would encourage anyone to work with her. She is outstanding and smart.

I highly recommend Brenda.
Brenda Brooks did an excellent job representing me during my bankruptcy. Given the stressful nature of the situation she was professional. caring and made the proceedings understandable and as painless as possible. I would highly recommend Brenda if anyone needs a bankruptcy attorney.

Got food stamps? RUN from her!!
Don't let the reviews fool you. Attorney Brenda Brooks from Moore & Brooks in Knoxville, TN is the WORST attorney I have ever dwelt with!!!! She is only nice to people who aren't getting help from the government. She is VERY unprofessional. When my husband and were having a conversation about getting financial assistance, she bluntly (and rudely) shouted, "People like you are making me pay for the welfare system!" She treated us as though we were white trash. Apparently this woman has never had a hard time in her life and knows nothing about why people need to file bankruptcy to begin with!! Its been 10 years now since I've dwelt with this biased woman, and my husband and I are now making very good money. We no longer need government assistance, but I'm glad it was available to us 10 years ago at a time when we needed it most. I have dwelt with many different attorneys for different things in my lifetime, and 10 years later, I can still remember her to this day. I can honestly say that she was the most absolute, nastiest biased attorney I have ever met!!!
