Great experience
Greg Wald was very patient with me while I was navigating bankruptcy, a new and scary thing. He answered all my questions, and I felt confident hiring him because he has decades of experience specifically in bankruptcy law. His services also included a program to help me get my credit score back up, which is a fantastic bonus. When I was nervous about finding his office and a place to park, he drew a map by hand and e-mailed it to me. I highly recommend him.

Very Helpful and Knowledgeable
Greg is very knowledgeable and has not hesitated to help with any questions or concerns I have had throughout my case. He also has partnered with a company that helps rebuild your score after you file. Throughout the process he has always responded quickly to the concerns I have had.

Makes this process simple
I met with Mr. Wald a couple times after the first consultation. He was patient with me and didn't pressure me. He explained everything I needed to know, answered all of my questions and told me how he can help me have a 702 credit score after filing bankruptcy. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney!

If there was more than 5 stars I world have given him!! Best lowyer in MINNESOTA!!
I greatly appreciated the level of great service provided by Mr. Greg Wald! He handled my Bankruptcy and answered all of my questions. He was very knowledgeable, very diligent at looking at different aspects of the law which would best suit my case. He understood my situation Right away and guided me to the process almost immediately. It was only 2 weeks from initial consultation to having my case filed. When you start talking to him, it's like you've know him all your life. Very professional, friendly, helpful and personable. From the start he explained things in an easy to understand way that made the entire process seem much less daunting and intimidating. He put me at ease. Easy to get in touch with, He returns any phone calls and emails promptly himself. Greg is very detailed. I never imagined things would have went as smoothly as they did. I would definitely recommend him to anybody that is struggling With finances, like I was. I am very pleased with the fabulous work he did. Thanks a million Greg you’re the best!!!! God Bless you !!!!!

Best experience you will have with an attorney!
Greg was very great to work with. He was very friendly, professional, and accommodating. He was also very knowledgeable and made sure I understood everything I needed to do to complete my bankruptcy case and was always available if I had questions or concerns. I dreaded filing for bankruptcy and waited 4 years because it was something out of my expertise and I did not know what to expect but Greg made the whole process so fast and easy for me. He did not leave me in the dark instead he guided me throughout the whole process and checked up on me often to make sure I was on task. I have such a big weight lifted off my shoulders because of Greg's services in bankruptcy! I would recommend Greg if you want to file for bankruptcy. He is truly a great attorney and I know he will do all that he can for you just as he did for me. It was the best experience I have ever had with an attorney. Thank you Greg!

So Grateful!
From the very first phone call, ( and I did contact multiple attorneys), I had faith that Greg Wald was going to make the entire Bankruptcy process as painless as possible. After hiring him I never had an issue getting answers to questions, getting reassurance throughout the process, and achieving the end result. Now I have the incredible opportunity to get my credit back, and he's even helping me with that too. I'm so grateful for his expertise, and his honest and straightforward (and considerate) manner.

Mr. Wald is very good at his job. I put excellent down on all the above because HE was. I do not like lawyers but Greg was different. He listened and explained thing so a normal person could understand. I have never done this bankruptcy be for and was scared. He made it easy and with his explanations it went very well.

A reliable guide
Deciding to file for bankruptcy was an emotional and scary prospect. I was fortunate to retain Gregory Wald because from the initial phone conversation to the actual court appearance, Mr. Wald was an excellent guide. His knowledgeable answers to my questions in the first phone conversation allowed me to make the decision to proceed with filing. The information for steps in the process, the background information I needed to provide to complete the filing, and information regarding the court procedure, was clear and promptly forwarded to me. I thought the whole process would be a nightmarish combination of confusing paperwork mixed with a dose of emotionalism. Due to Mr. Wald's expertise, the emotional aspects were calmed and the processing itself was very organized. My thanks to Mr. Wald. I highly recommend him to anyone who's either wondering if this is the step they should take or for assistance in filing a bankruptcy petition -- he will be an excellent guide.
