Wonderful experience
Leeann represented me for my bankruptcy case recently. She was incredibly knowledgeable and prompt. Just as important, she understood how my financial problems affected me and my family, and she was very considerate and caring about that. I would recommend her to anyone!

Legal Experience
M's. Thornhill was very helpful with explaining the process of bankruptcy, what to expect every step of the way. Her staff was always polite and did not look down on me for having to file. I had always been in control of my finances but due to divorce and job change my debts were more than I could bear. I was satisfied with the service she provided to me.

Filing Chapter 7 or 13
I contacted Leeann Thornhill In February of 2014, via e-mail. She responded promptly and provided basic information on Chapter 7 and 13. She offered for my wife and I to come in for a free consultation. At that time she gave us Worksheet for us to fill out and bring with us on our visit. We scheduled an appointment which at that time she explained the difference of Chapter 7 and 13. The 2 paths we could qualify for. At no time during our appointment was there any pressure to proceed. She was compassionate and understood that it was a difficult decision. We were given information to take home and discussed which we did and decided we were not ready to commit. We contacted Leeann 6 months later after speaking with a financial advisor and base on what we were told we made the decision to file. Leeann went over our budget work sheet and informed us we would qualify for Chapter 7. We set up an appointment to apply for Chapter 7 and were given a booklet by her as to what we needed for her to file with the courts. It was very detailed and easy to follow. We provided all the information she needed and our paper work was filed with the courts and within 90 days was completed. During this whole process Leeann was available for any questions and concerns we had for her. She responded promply. All of our correspondence was done by e-mail except for signing the papers and our appearance in court which is standard procedure. I want to emphasize at no time was there any pressure to go forth with this procedure. She was very compasionate and understanding how difficult it was for us. The whole procedure was flawless and went off without any problems. I cannot offer enough praise for her firm and associate. I would recommend her to anyone needing to file for Chapter 7 or 13.

Caring, concerned, and compassionate
I was struggling to deal with the loss of a relationship and mounting debt. Leeann was able to put my fears at ease and help me arrange what I needed to so that I can turn my life around. I am now back in school and much to look forward to. I am forever thankful Leeann helped me through some very dark financial times. She really is one of the best!

Wasson and Thornhill went way and beyond the average bankruptcy lawyers call of duty. During my process of filing, they were caring, compassionate and there for me every step of the way. I never once felt uncomfortable about a process I had fought for a year. They helped me to understand that it was okay to be doing what I had no choice to do.

Very pRofessional and thorough. Leeann made me feel comfortable with my decision and helped me every step of the way. No regrets about choosing to file for bankruptcy and I have heard from people that went through other attorneys that were not kept informed and regret the decision to file. On the other hand it was the best choice fit my financial situation abd I am currently working on saving abd budgeting. Very happy with my experience
