I filed a Ch 7 and CH 13 bankruptcy due to unforeseen circumstances within the last 10 years. For each case I was extremely happy as to how my cases were handled. I used attorney Rebecca Johnson-Ellis and attorney Jeremy Shephard and both proved to be excellent attorneys in their field. The office staff made me feel comfortable and not judged. I knew after speaking to the paralegals and the attorneys, that the choice I made was the correct one for my specific situations at the time. I would highly recommend this Bankruptcy office over and above any others. If you find yourself in a situation and need help or advice, please contact and Associates.
