Honest and Sound Advice
I reached out to Michael Georg for a consultation regarding a credit card debt that turned into a lawsuit. He provided honest and clear advice on my options for proceeding. Given my specific circumstance, he even suggested that I first attempt to resolve the matter on my own and walked me through the steps to do so. Michael didn't treat me like a customer or try to pressure me to retaining him. He gave me the most logical solution and I went with it. Thankful for our communication and, in the most polite way possible, I hope our paths don't need to cross again on business matters!

Saved my sanity and my home
Michael and his amazing staff not only helped save my home w only 4 days till sale date, they gave me back hope for the future that I had lost. Michael and his team are good at what they do and I am thankful every single day for the extra effort they put in to helping me with such a limited amount of time. I was in denial and thought I could some how figure it out. So if anyone out there reads this and u feel like u have nothing left and nowhere to turn...you do you have michael and his team, trust me there is light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you all so much my children and I are forever grateful.. good luck to everyone out there. Your struggle is soon to be a thing of the past.

Thank you for being my attorney
As human beings we would always need an expert on our side to give us the right hand when we need it , and though it can be very embarrassing sometimes to keep making the same mistakes again and again with or without realizing it attorney Michael George has always offered me the right hand without judging me and his help would never expire at the day of filling, instead it keeps extending until the problem is solved and obstacles are overcome . One day I knocked the doors of another attorney and the way he dealt with my case made me appreciate all the effort and the knowledge attorney Michael George puts into anybody’s case . I am much more comfortable now that he is my attorney not having to worry that things might go bad or worsen again .

Too good and true
Financial disasters could happen to anyone even for those who got the nail on the head ! a lot of times if not the most we take bad decisions specially when under pressure, unfortunately we don’t realize it until our whole life becomes “ past due “ and there is no way out but to run behind even on the simplest needs. All I can say about Attorney Michael George is that his knowledge and experience were always there to serve people who are in need for it with a lot of sense of humanity and availability and understanding I personally would always think he’s never paid back enough for his efforts thank you for all your professional and sensitive help may god bless you....

Overwhelmed
Prior to filing for bankruptcy I was struggling with trying to pay my debt off and dealing with the multiple phone calls, letters, and process servers coming to my home. My anxiety level was through the roof. When I walked into Debt Advisors and met with my Attorney Michael George he was able to put my mind at ease. When I walked out of bankruptcy court it felt as if a ton of weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Attorney Michael George and his staff were an amazing team. They made me feel as if they had my back through this entire process. I will be forever grateful and I've referred them to several of my friends and family. So if you're overwhelmed with debt and don't know which way to go I highly recommend attorney Michael George and staff at Debt Advisors.

Caring, Thorough, and Quality Service
I found Debt Advisors on line. I was cautious because I never heard of this firm, but there was a office close by. I was contacted by Atty. Mike Georg and after a brief conversation of where I was financially, he made an appt. for me to come in. From the first appt. to the last, including Mike personally representing me at the debt hearing, I was very comfortable knowing that I was placed in good hands. I am very pleased to find a firm such as this one with the integrity and respect not only for the client, but also for the law(s) itself. Debt Advisors is highly recommended by me. They take the time to evaluate your situation and help you (no pressure) in your time of need. Many thanks and many thumbs up to Mike Georg and the whole team at Debt Advisors. Sincerely, George / Wisconsin

Relieved and thankful
Feeling very low,I did not feel very hopeful for my situation. The moment I walked into Attorney Georg's office,he actually listened,which is rare. Instead of dwelling on my mistakes, he encouraged and compassionately helped me to look forward and work on solving my financial problems. He helped me to get back on track. Attorney Georg went out of his way to get my situation solved with dignity. I am forever grateful!

Extremely satisfied
Attorney Michael Georg and the entire Debt Advisors staff were very helpful when I was stuck in an unfortunate position and filed my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. They understood the bankruptcy laws in great depth and answered all questions to my satisfaction. Being in debt is stressful and creditors are intimidating, but Debt Advisors helped ease my anxiety and offered the relief I needed. I recommend their services to anyone experiencing financial hardship and the persistent harassment of creditors

Attorney Georg is an excellent bankruptcy attorney.
I was just notified that the debts in my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy have been discharged. Now, I would like to give a review about my experience with my bankruptcy attorney, Attorney Michael Georg. Due to a divorce after 33 years of marriage, I found myself frightened, alone, and drowning in debt. My ex husband said that he was going to file bankruptcy on the debts we had incurred in our marriage. After making payments towards the debts on my own for about nine months, I finally came to the dreaded realization that I certainly could not continue to pay them alone on my now much limited income. I knew I had no choice but to file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. My divorce attorney did not do bankruptcies, but she did refer me to an attorney that she knew well. Although I have tremendous respect for my divorce attorney, I just did not feel comfortable with the bankruptcy attorney she referred me to, for a variety of reasons. I did my research, and chose three lawyers to schedule consults with. I kept coming back to Attorney Georg as the first attorney that I wanted to see. I just had this "gut feeling" that he would be the attorney that I would need. At my first consult with Attorney Georg, he certainly did not disappoint me. Although I was afraid, humiliated and vulnerable, Attorney Georg put me at ease right away. He in no way judged me, and he explained the process fully to me, in a way that I could understand. He offered me a very decent fee, with a payment plan that I could afford. I hired him, without even seeing the other two lawyers on my list. On the day of my meeting with the Bankruptcy Trustee, I was extremely nervous, but Attorney Georg was there ahead of me to greet me. He explained to me exactly what would happen at the meeting, and what questions I would probably be asked. Throughout the entire bankruptcy process, Attorney Georg kept me well informed. He always promptly answered my phone calls or e mails to address any questions I had - and I had a lot of questions! I highly recommend Attorney Georg. He is highly professional and knowledgeable. At the same time, he is very understanding and "down to earth". In my opinion, you cannot go wrong in hiring Attorney Georg.

I am first time client
I am so very pleased with this lawyer and his professionalism. He is easy to talk to and didn't make me feel bad for what already is a bad situation. He helped me consolidate my debt into one manageable monthly payment and in just a few short visits I am on my way to a much better stress free life. He is not like I would expect a lawyer to be like. He is approachable and he never talked down to me. I am so happy with my decision and I am glad I took the recommendation. I absolutely will recommend him to my friends if they need help like I did. Thanks… Michael Georg…

The greatest help I could have recieved from an Attorney that truly cares.
With job downsizing and outsourcing, I truly needed some serious advice on how I was going to cope with the amount of debt I incurred. I searched the internet and spoke with at least three offices which included Attorney Georg's and then decided to follow up with him. I remembered speaking with one of the kindest receptionist that asked me for some background information. When I met with Attorney Mike Georg, he listened intently as I explained my terrible debt situation and I could tell, he knew I was way over my head in debt and that I needed some immediate help. He kindly advised and explained in detail how the process works and the fees involved. Once I paid a certain amount, and provided the necessary information, he was able to file my case. He then allowed me to make payment arrangements on the difference, which was at that time, such great help for me. He had advised that everything was set in motion and that I did not have to make future payments to my debtors. He then told me that we will have a court hearing and advised me on what to expect. In the mean time I remember, he had credit counseling classes online set up for me. On that day of the hearing, as anxious as I was, he was there before me and greeted me and assured that things would be ok. I didn't get a chance to tell him this, that he was so right, things went well. Afterwards, I still needed his help since some debtors were still contacting me and he got right on it. As I see him advertised on different websites, I was move to let everyone know about my experience, even though it's condensed. He truly cares about people and I knew he knew if I could of paid my debt, I would of, however, his awesome help and empathy was needed life skills that help me to continue on to succeed and I know he will and has helped others to do the same.

We found Debt Advisors and Michael Georg quite by accident on line. Never having been in this position before we didn't know where to start. I went with my gut and called him. From our first conversation we felt very comfortable with our choice. He proved me right! Filing bankruptcy was not a place we wanted to go but looking back we should have filed long before spending all of our retirement funds trying to stay on top of our debts. We are now broke but debt free. An experience we won't soon forget. Michael Georg is honest, knowledgeable and above all patient! If you find yourself in this position we would highly recommend you call Atty. Georg sooner rather than later!

Awesome & truthful
Michael was so helpful and always returned calls or emails personally. I was nervous about going to the consultation but after 5 minutes felt very comfortable discussing my situation. I think the scariest thing.was...how will I pay for this up front but the payment plan was great for a single mom like myself. Definitely recommend Debt Advisors to everyone.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Attorney Georg for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. He was very thorough and took the time to explain everything in terms I understood. Seeking out an attorney for bankruptcy can be a difficult process, but I was very impressed with his compassion towards me & my situation. I will continue to refer people to Attorney Georg. He was great to work with!
