Exceptional, Knowledgeable Attorney Easily Recommendable
We were referred to John Lamey through another law firm for his expertise in chapter 11 bankruptcy. Naturally, we were very nervous about the whole bankruptcy process, but John quickly put our nerves to rest. John is extremely knowledgeable, patient, professional, yet calm and is able to explain complex legal matters/concepts in a way that is very easy to understand and digest for the average person not legally trained. John Lamey's fees are extremely fair; his negotiation skills with creditors' attorneys are second to none; and he and his staff are very responsive to communications. We would absolutely—without doubt nor hesitation—HIGHLY recommend John Lamey to anyone needing legal assistance through the otherwise complicated and bewildering bankruptcy process.

Mr. Lamey and his staff were extremely helpful in guiding me through the bankruptcy process. I couldn't be happier with their knowledge and level of experience!

Call Mr. John Lamey .... You will not be disappointed
Moving to Minnesota to care for our aging parents we quit our jobs in North Carolina. It took awhile to find jobs and never did find a job that paid what we were making. Our bills remained up to date paying minimums and using our savings, our 401K's, IRA's, and gifts from family. There was no way to pay these debts off, and didn't even know how we could possibly pay for an attorney. After going through the phone book, being treated with disrespect by a couple of atorneys, I found John Lamey's number and made an appointment. What a pleasure to meet John. How we were treated with respect and understanding. We discovered that bankruptcy was a must even though this was not something we ever wanted to do and were devastated with the news. John was very knowledgeable, so kind, and patient as He carried us through a very difficult situation. If you need an attorney for anything that John does, Call Him... You will not be disappointed. Thank you John, Thank you will never be enough to express out gratitude.
