Mr. Sheridan made bankruptcy easy and stress free.
Bankruptcy is hard and can be very stress full. Mr. Sheridan made this easier than I had expected and very stress free. He is on top of things and makes sure you get everything you need to him in a timely manner. You can call him anytime with questions or concerns. If he is not available he will get right back with you. If you are considering bankruptcy I would highly recommend Mr. Sheridan. He is very professional and knows what he is doing.

BEST CREDIT SPECIALIST
Big gratitude to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST for helping me out on my credit report. Earlier this year I had evictions, foreclosure and bankruptcy on my credit report which deprived me access to so many things. I decided to go online and search for good hacker for help and that was how I came across PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST who helped me removed the eviction, foreclosure and bankruptcy from my credit report. I can guarantee you they are the best credit specialist in the universe. They further increased my credit score from 553 to 802 TransUnion, 807 Equifax, 812 Experian. One thing I love so much about PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST is that they keep to time frame, they told me in less than 6 days they’ll get job done. In the 5th day job has been fixed already and uploaded to my credit profile. They’re the best among all. I sincerely recommend them to the universe.

Excellent Lawyer
Going through bankruptcy is not what you wake up one morning and get excited about filling. I was struggling to clean my credit after graduation from college. Out of nowhere, a 16 year old debt hit me and it had grown from 2000 to almost 8000. I received a garnishment order and the company did not want a negotiated payment. That is when I searched online and found Michael. I was skeptical at the beginning but I took my chances. It is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. A classy lawyers and Michael explains things in a language understandable. The flat fee is one other thing that makes it easy to contact the law firm without the fear of paying too much. I had very few questions though because he made the process extremely smooth.

Chapter 7
Michael Sheridan is a wonderful, caring, who did not judge or lecture about the situation I was in. I am a senior citizen and had considered this before but was hesitant to do so. He made me feel at ease about the bankruptcy proceedings. There was questions about a small amount of mineral rights I own, but they were resolved in my favor. Michael upon reviewing my credit report was able to add a $25,000 debt that I thought did not qualify to go to Chapter 7. I am totally pleased with Michael and my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy has been granted. I am so relieved it is a huge burden lifted. Michael is a gem, I absolutely recommend him if you are considering a bankruptcy.

Easiest Thing I Have Done With The Court System
Michael and Bonnie are amazing to work with. I have an ongoing custody battle with my ex, and the amount of work and stress I have to deal with with the help of my great lawyer, is disheartening. I was worried that filing for bankruptcy would be the same stressful situation. I am so happy to say, it was a very stress free process. Michael works very hard to get your case all ready for review, and all I really had to do was supply necessary documents for him, and send them via email (which is great instead of having to physically go into the office during these COVID times) The initial consultation was a breeze, I am a nurse and not fluent in legal jargon, Michael makes it very easy to understand exactly what was going to happen. When I had my mandatory phone hearing with the trustee, there was one snag, as she got stuck on my Grandmothers diamonds she gave me when she passed, family heirlooms. She made me jump through hoops to get them appraised (which ended up not happening because it was too expensive bc there was so many of them) she wanted individual pictures (of high quality) of tiny .25 carat diamonds. So the first meeting with the trustee was postponed until she could learn more about the diamonds. During this time Michael not only explained her reasoning but was very helpful and communicative of what I needed to have done and when I needed it done by. Easy. After the second meeting with the trustee it went great. And what is great about those trustee meetings, Michael is on the line also listening while your case is being heard, so if you need help or get stuck on something, he is always at the ready to step in and help his clients. Working with Atlas Law Firm on my bankruptcy was the smartest thing I could do. And now I am on my way to rebuilding my credit after a horrible divorce and becoming very ill and racking up tons of medical bills I just couldn’t pay. Because of Michael and he work, I am now optimistic on rebuilding my credit to the great score it was before I was married. I would recommend this firm to anyone looking to do their bankruptcy without all the stress.

Case
I couldn't be happier with the work that Mike did on my case. He was extremely knowledgeable and responsive to my endless list of questions. He was referred to me by another attorney and I've never second guessed my decision to hire him. Him and Bonnie were fantastic. Don't question it, just do it!!!!
