Compassionate and Professional
I used Bill for my divorce. I knew my divorce was going to be complicated as I was dealing with an abusive spouse, teenage children, little to no financial assets, and a spouse who made three times as much money as me. Bill was the third lawyer that I met with and he was the only one who showed me any kind of compassion. Upon hearing my case, he immediately started looking up similar cases and talking about strategy. I hired Bill and have been thankful ever since. He worded the final divorce papers in a way that protected my financial rights; gave my almost graduated teenage children the ability to choose which parent they wanted to stay with; and gave my children the financial support that they deserved. He also helped greatly in the negotiating process with my ex-spouse by being willing to go to court if we were not able to settle the divorce. Prior to meeting with Bill, I used a debt negotiation company to get out of debt. It was a four year long nightmare and upon meeting Bill I refer all my friends who are going through financial hardships or divorces to him.

Highly Recommended
I used Mr. Bodensteiner for a bankruptcy attorney and I highly recommend him. I was not sure about the process with bankruptcy and he assured me I was doing the right thing, and it was a big weight lifted off my shoulders. I highly recommend Mr. Bodensteiner due to his convenience of being able to schedule around my schedule; his great personality; his knowledge on all the bankruptcy laws; his low and competitive rates, and his attentiveness to answering all of my questions, reassuring me and returning of my phone calls. Hopefully I will not fall into the same boat again, but I would definitely hire him as an attorney again if needed.

Hire someone else
This guy is just not worth hiring. He can't keep anything straight. He almost lost his license twice for wrong doing. He lies and you would be better off just passing on this one.
