Hands down Honest, Prompt and Professional
I was a newly divorced woman, who had to start from the bottom after a 25 yr marriage, I contact Jesse and he was so proffessional and honest, it made me feel like I could bounce back, and I did, The process was so smooth and I could not be happier, He took me through the pandemic and beyond, now I am free to climb up without any problems,

So happy I made the call to Jesse
I had read all of the other reviews prior to calling Jesse for help with my Chapter 13 filing. Now having had my own personal experience with him, I couldn't agree more with all of his other clients. His direct communication, incredibly fast response time to emails and messages, and attention to every detail are nothing short than incredible. I was incredibly nervous when I started the process. I was embarrassed that I had allowed myself to be in the situation I was in and scared about the repercussions of filing Chapter 13. Jesse made several personal calls to me and those fears flew right out the window. He put me at ease by putting my situation into a larger perspective that I couldn't have seen on my own. He is honest, so intelligent and yet, spoke me to in terms that were comfortable, understanding, and uplifting. Before calling Jesse, I thought that I would never see the light at the end of the tunnel. Not only did Jesse show me that light is there and within reach, he helped me turn this situation into a chance at a fresh start. I couldn't be more grateful for Jesse and his staff for being there for me in a time I needed help the most.

Top Notch
Jesse is a top notch lawyer. He is prompt at returning calls from the first contact, is punctual in showing for court, explains things in laymens terms and goes above and beyond. I cannot praise him enough for his tireless efforts. I had a very compliacted case involving overdue property taxes and was close to foreclosure. The county's lawyers dragged out confirming my case requesting multiple revisions as they saw fit. Each time Jesse modified the documents and didnt charge me a single penny more for his endless hours of work. He will do anything and everything possible to make your case work. I highly recommend giving him a call first as you shouldn't need anyone else. Thanks again Jesse. You saved my home and my finances!

Saved Me Thousands
I was contemplating bankruptcy for along time and nervous to file. I spoke with several different law firms, but after speaking with Mr. Sweeney, he put us at ease and made everything so simple. He was timely, efficient and professional. His advice saved us thousands, and reassured us that he was the best choice. Thank you, Jesse!

Gold Star Review
I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney to help guide me through my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Mr. Sweeney explained the process in such an easy manner. He made a very stressful situation so pleasant. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs to file any type of bankruptcy.

Terrific Job - Start to Finish
From the first call to the conclusion of my Chapter 13 bankruptcy Jesse and his team were very professional and helpful. They helped educate me on my options and the choice became clear after doing so. They handled all the negotiations with my creditors and represented at my hearings. I would recommend them to anyone seeking bankruptcy assistance in Michigan.

Awesome communicator and very patient!
Mr. Sweeney became my Ch13 lawyer about 18 months into my case once my original lawyer sold his practice and he picked up my file. I had a ton of questions, and Mr. Sweeney answered them all. He also understood that "life happens" and whenever I ran into an issue, he was able to guide me on what I needed to send to him and communicated everything with my Trustee. I was discharged (yay) on 12/18/17 thanks to his hard work. I wasn't always the easiest client with tons of questions, but he made the voyage through my personal bankruptcy as painless as possible. I do NOT plan on ever having to go through this again, but if "life happens", I know where to turn.

A great communicator.
Mr. Jesse Sweeney took on my case mid stream. I can't say enough good things about Mr. Sweeney. He is truly a master at his job. I had a chapter 13 case that was very neglected from my first lawyer. I knew if I did not hire another lawyer to fix my case I would not be able to finish it and would of lost everything. My tax account in Brighton Mi. told me about Mr. Sweeney. From the first time I talk to him he told me he could help my case. He not only fixed what was wrong with it in the first place but even did more. I needed major home repairs to my home and with Mr. Sweeney as my lawyer I was able to get what was needed fixed. Not alone was he good at his job but he was great at communicating.As a added bonus he was also very kind. That was such a blessing to me I can't tell you that I really enjoyed having him as my lawyer. I will not miss being in my chapter 13 just finished it in 2017 but I will miss Mr. Sweeney.

Very professional and compassionate!
I waited way too long to file bankruptcy. Once I had hired Jesse and my case was filed, I wish I'd done this much sooner. Jesse removed all negative stigma I had attached with this process.. He was there with me all the way. My questions / fears were laid to rest by prompt responses and courtesy. Highly recommended!

best lawyer I ever hired.
Where do I start? Originally hired jesse to get us through chapter 13. After a couple years and many life changes, he helped us seamlessy change to 7. Through the entire 5 year process, jesse answered every email and phone call promptly and helped ease our minds. Things are finally looking up for us. Thank you Jesse!!!!

Best bankruptcy attorney ever!
My wife and I filed for bankruptcy within the last year. From the moment we first met Jesse Sweeny, we knew he would be our attorney. He was very knowledgable and explained the bankruptcy process to us. We never experienced a bankruptcy before which is very scarey but he made us feel reassured. He was very good communicating with us most time returning our phone calls, texts or emails within an hour. He helped us get through a very tough time with ease!! I would highly recommend, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Jesse and his team helped me and my wife get through our 5 year plan Chapter 13 bankruptcy. He was always available when we had questions or concerns and was quick to respond to any e-mails. Our bankruptcy at times put a lot of stress on my wife and I, but it was a tremendous help and relief having Jesse with us. Thank you again for your services and making sure we made it all the way through!
