" BEWARE "
I hired Michael Pepin in 2014 to do a simple Bankruptcy for $2,300... Come to find out shortly after hiring him. That majority of my really bad credit stuff had been cleared off cause so many years had passed... "Great". I owed the i.r.s. & state close to $35,000 in back taxes... I find out i can do a offer/compromise & clear most of it up... Michael says, I can do that.. That he has over 20yrs in bankruptcy, criminal, civil ect helping people. Go on "pa courts mn us".. search attorneys under cases... find out he hs only done a handful of cases outside of bankruptcy.. Gives me $500 back... So $1,800 to do this & it only costs $150 each, for state & i.r.s to file paper to do this . . it's been over 2yrs.. A year ago I call the state & i.r.s to see if I can find out anything.... They have no clue about him as my attorney.... WOW... Ask him about it , then he acts like he is all gun hole now.. Few months pass... Then he tells me the State doesn't do offer compromises... I go online to mn state & find out that you can... Tell him... He is all gun hole again.. Then says will do i.r.s claim first... Few months go by. Get denied for failure of paperwork.... So 3rd time... I'm done. I don't trust him.. I'm just getting hustled. Figured I would Cut my losses, Asked for 1200 of my 1800 back, figured for the 2 hrs of paperwork he might of did. Give him something ... No kind of refund in the mail. He didn't even complete quarter of what I hired him to do.. Some easy paperwork in his free time!!!.. He had no clue how to do it or the procedures, or he is just a hustler & not honest .... I feel very cheated.

Mr. Pepin is a very patient and good humored person. If this is your first bankruptcy, especially, I highly recommend Mike. He acted promptly, and has been very helpful and courteous, even outside normal office hours and business days. He's polite and patient with my wife, who speaks English as a second language. He's informal, but very efficient. 100% satisfied.

Michael was very knowledgeable and helped me in a very timely manner. I spoke with with other lawyers over the phone before speaking with him, he was the only one that made me feel at ease with my situation, and was sincere about helping me get through a rough time. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
