Great Firm to deal with!
It took several months to get my bankruptcy case done, but all the staff stuck with me and advised me along the way. There was a little hiccup when someone on my case left the firm, but others got up to speed and my case was filed, and discharged in a few months.

Hard Decision
I had been struggling with several garnishments and knew that more were coming and that I had to make a financial decision for my peace of mind. I did some research and read some reviews and decided to schedule a consult with Castle and Associates. It turned out to be one of the most sound decisions that I made. They totally walked me through the whole process and told me what to expect along the way. There were no surprises. Everyone that I encountered from the 1st phone call to my final court appearance was great and helped to ease the transition for me. If you ever have to make this choice please consult with Castle and Associates.

Miracle Workers
I was completely amazed at the professionalism and integrity of this law office. After the car accident I had a mountain load of debt from rental cars and medical expenses. Attorney Lumb made sure that I was compensated for my trouble. They always communicated with me and were readily available. That doesn't happen often and that's a plus. Do yourself a favor and use this law office!

Excellent team..Castle Law
While employing the services of Castle Law, I was truly made to feel like family. Their handling of my case was personal, professional and spot on. The entire team seemed to go to bat for me. My case required a continuance due to my having moved to East Tennessee, and the team fought on my behalf for that continuance to happen. The job was thoroughly done and I was always confident that Castle Law would do its best for me. I was not disappointed.

Starting Over Is Sweet
I am in real estate sales. I found myself drowning in a sea of debts I made when the economy was booming. When the economy turned, my sales declined. I tried to repay those debts but with late fees and interest accruing monthly my balances continued to mount. When the economic down turn rendered me unable to provide for my basic everyday needs I turned to The Castle Law Firm. They were understanding, efficient, and diligent in handling my case. I would highly recommend then to my associates, friends, and family members.

Peace of Mind
It's only been two weeks since I first walked into their office and I already have my peace of mind back. The calls that had me afraid to answer my phone have stopped. I received threatening letters at home and at work. My lawyer now has those letters and have taken care of the companies that sent them. Everyone was friendly, but sincere from the first day. They got straight to the point and didn't beat around the bush. I appreciate everything that they have accomplished thus far!
