William Paul Slough Review
Paul is very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable about the law. He seems to truly care about his clients. He was prompt in answering any questions that I had. He also made me feel at ease with my situation. I would hire Paul again for any legal matters that I may have and will also recommend him to anyone that I know that needs legal counsel.

Excellent service, prompt responses.
I hired Mr Slough to handle my bankruptcy. Paul made a difficult experience go smoothly -- he was respectful, prompt with providing info and answering questions. Highly recommended.

Paul made an awful experience tolerable. We felt that we knew what to expect and when. He stayed calm and professional and helped us do the same. After we were at our hearing, it was very clear that Paul was an exceptional lawyer, he had the respect of the judge and we felt blessed that he was our attorney....

Mr. Slough was VERY helpful during my bankruptcy. He kept me informed. He was always there via telephone or email to answer any questions or concerns that I had. He explained things in a clear, concise manner. I was very pleased with his service.

Beyond reproach!
When my husband and I had questions about bankruptcy filing, he was very kind, approachable, knowledgable, and put us at ease. What we have appreciated since then, is his timely responses to our follow up questions, even though our case is closed. He continues to be supportive and helpful.

Previuos Client
Paul was the first lawyer that I have ever met that did everything he said, and went above and beyond on my behalf. There were no additional charges and everything happened just like he said it would. I knew what to expect, based on what he said. He was very knowledgable in the laws pertaining to my case, and very responsive.

Very pleased
We hired Paul Slough to handle our chapter 7 bankruptcy case and didn't regret it for a second. Bankruptcy is a humbling, and embarrassing thing to have to go through so I was a huge relief to have a lawyer that wasn't judgmental. He never once made us feel ashamed of the predicament we'd managed to get into and was very helpful in helping us understand the law and our options. He was also well worth the money. Every phone call was answered immediately and we felt like his only case. 10 out of 10 for sure. Thanks again for everything.

Paul Slough was very thorough, he explained everything in terms that I could understand. He gave me a clear and concise picture of my optiions. He did not try to influence me in any way but also was candid in his recommendations as to what actions I could/should take. I felt completely comfortable with him and well informed. I trusted his judgement.
