I needed the advice of a bankruptcy attorney. An acquaintance of mine, a previous client of Brea, recommended her highly.
I made the initial call for a first consultation, conveniently set for a Saturday morning.
Her office is located near the U of M with lots of free parking. I liked that.
Brea gives the immediate impression of caring, of being genuine.
We sat and talked. I explained my situation, that I had not yet decided to file for bankruptcy as a solution. She asked questions with a professional focus and efficiency and never once pressured me to a decision.
I left comforted with the tools needed to start a petition if I so decided.
I took a rather long time to file. Brea kept my creditors at bay.
My questions were always answered quickly by phone, text or email. Her directions were always clear and accurate.
In the end a court date was established. Brea met me at the court location, the court session minutes brief.
We all know each client case is different, but in my case I wish to note that my legal fees were very modest, quite below my expectations.
Now, in reading the reviews here, I see there is a consistent Five Star Theme. These Stars are earned. Please include mine.
Kudos to Brea. Thanks for being a Good Human Being.

It's been several years since my bankruptcy, and I've come to consider finding Brea to be one of the many blessings from God in my life. She volunteers her time at a free bankruptcy advice clinic, and when I met her there, I was extremely impressed by her combination of knowledge, compassion, and sincerity. Thankfully I had already spent a lot of time shopping around for a good bankruptcy lawyer, so when I met Brea I could easily recognize how amazing she was in terms of her personality, competency, and her fair pricing.
Brea was a true advocate during the bankruptcy process. She knew everything we would face, and she thoroughly advised us on it in advance. She never cut any corners or rushed us through things, instead she invested real, quality time into making sure we were coming through the bankruptcy in the absolute best way possible. On top of that, she stuck to all the laws and procedures and never even hinted at doing anything dishonest or halfway, which was important to me.
I can't speak highly enough about the quality of representation you will receive from Ms. Buettner-Stanchfield. I have referred several of my family and friends who unfortunately found themselves in a similar situation to the one I went through, and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Ms. Buettner-Stanchfield was very knowledgable and helpful during what was otherwise a very stressful time. I was told what to expect before, during and after my bankruptcy and I never had to feel like I was on my own. She's definitely the right choice!

She was able to get my entire $3,000 back from a man who had represented himself as a licensed and bonded contractor by her strongly worded correspondence and firm follow up calls to him - this all without having to go to court. She was also very patient with my calls and kept reminding me that my ultimate goal was to get my money back

I was trying to get back on my feet. Losing my job and taking care of my son put me in a very tough financial situation. Debt collectors were hounding me, I just didn't know what to do. When I met with Mrs. Buettner-Stanchfield, I had a lot of questions and was worried that I wouldn't understand the legal language. Mrs. Buettner-Stanchfield took the time to explain the process I would need to go through and answered everything. Without her help and expertise, I would still be trying to crawl out of the financial hole I was in. Her location was easy to get to and she had hours that worked for me. She will definitely be someone I will recommend to all that need help from now on.
