Excellent Service Throughout!
Bankruptcy is not a 1 day event, but rather a long, drawn out process. Both Dana and Adam did an excellent job supporting me from beginning to end and I never had to wait more than a day for an answer to any one of my numberous questions. I truly felt as though I was their only client. I successfully completed my bankruptcy years early, and this firm played a helpful hand in that.

This is the attorney you want!
To say going through bankruptcy is a nerve-wracking experience would be an understatement. To say Dana Oglesby is the best in the business is also an understatement. I was impressed with Dana from first contact. I had left a phone message with her office. I was amazed to receive a call from Dana herself. I was expecting a call from an assistant or secretary. Dana spent the next half hour giving me detailed answers to my questions, and explained my options. I knew right away that she was the one to hire if I had to go through the process of bankruptcy. From initial meeting to final discharge, Dana was there with answers, advice, and reassurance. Even better, she is genuinely compassionate and sympathetic. She and her assistant Stacey were incredibly patient, even when I made a few frantic, last-minute "What about this? What about that???" phone calls. (Thanks, Dana and Stacey!) Any attorney can file your paperwork. But it takes a truly exceptional attorney like Dana to make the process smooth and survivable. To say that she is friendly, professional, and highly skilled isn't enough. Having Dana as your attorney is like having a friend there to hold your hand and walk you through the process. Bottom line? If you've found Dana Oglesby, you've found the attorney you need to hire.

Rating my Attorney
I wasn't for sure how to file my claim. I knew it could be done - but I was very nervous - I've never done anything like this - and I was so terrified that I wouldn't do something right. Dana, comforted me and told me I would be fine. From the time I seen her in my first visit to when we totally closed everything. Dana was there for me, she guided me into everything and helped me to not be worried. If I or someone else would ever need Dana's help - she would be the first one I will call or to give a reference on from any of my friends. Thank you so much; you really helped make my life so much easier.

Professional and personable
I just came from an initial consultation with Dana and she was extremely helpful. I left with a ton of questions answered regarding the bankruptcy process and feel like I can make a truly informed decision. If we decide to proceed, we will definitely be using her services.

Classy and professional
I had spoken with 3 bankruptcy attorneys prior to speaking with the Jackson & Oglesby firm. Dana was kind enough to meet with me on a phone call and walk in. I chose this firm based on good reviews and it was convenient for me with my work location. She was very welcoming and insightful as respectful to my case. Dana was the only one whom gave me hope that it would all work out for me. I was informed of my situation and kept updated. Her communication was speedy and insightful. I would highly recommend Dana and her law firm. Thank you!

Personable and Warm
My experience with Dana was very pleasurable from the beginning. She never made me feel embarrassed or ashamed of my situation. I appreciated her willingness to always help whenever I ha questions. I've recommend her to at least 2 people. The only time I felt uncomfortable was sitting in front of the judge as he somewhat blasted the bankruptcy filers in front of everyone. I thought that was unprofessional. If I would or could have had a heads up that would have been more prepared for his scolding. Lol.

Very impressive!
I took a chance on this firm. Had a gut feeling to go here rather than the big firm doing similar work. I was not disappointed! We worked mostly with Dana and were very impressed with her skills. She is extremely clear and organized in explaining the bankruptcy process. Unlike most attorneys I have worked with in other specialty areas, she actually responds promptly to emails and phone calls! She is sensitive to the emotions of the client going through bankruptcy but doesn't dwell on it. Instead, she efficiently and effectively moves you through the process to a successful conclusion. When she gets you to the goal is when you can finally let go of the emotional baggage. What an awesome feeling! I promised myself I will never need her services again, but I'm sure glad she was there for us!

great law firm
I had a great experience with this firm. I found them to be informative and reliable. As well as honest and understanding. I tend to think some attorneys come off as over confident and this was not the case. This firm made me feel very comfortable.
