Legal Case Review

Great experience
I had called around and gotten a few different quotes, but from my first consultation, I knew I made the right choice. My appointment with Mr. Turnwald was very thorough, and I had the entire process explained to me up front. As soon as I had everything to them that was needed, he got it all filed extremely fast. I never feel like I am missing out on something that is going on, because he is very good about sending me the information he gets, so I always know if something is going on with my case. In the past, I have had lawyers that don't make me feel like they care about my case, but that has never been the situation here. I am very happy with the service I have received so far, and I would recommend Gene Turnwald to any of my friends and family.

I don't understand why, but my experience with Mr. Turnwald has been pretty unsatisfactory to say the least. While handling my bankruptcy I was given specific information by Gene only to receive opposite information by his secretary. I have been given deadlines for certain things that needed to be filed ,only to HAVE to call them numerous times later on to remind them to do it. They never seem to know who the hell I even am. This is after my fee has been paid to them in full. His secretary is never on the same page with Gene. Ever. Gene didn't even know that she filed my bankruptcy before I had found all of my creditors. Any time I call I feel as if though they think I should be paying extra to ask questions. I would never go through him again. Hopefully I can get ahold of them soon to remind them of my ammendment deadline. This is really important and I already paid for it to be filed. This has been a nightmare of misinformation and unprofessionalism .
