Excellent
Stuart and Katie are very caring and knowledgeable and treat you as a person, not a number. Finding ourselves in the situation of filing bankruptcy we were very discouraged and felt embarrassed. Both Stuart and Katie made the whole situation much easier for us to bare and felt at ease going through the bankruptcy process with them. We can not thank them enough and we highly recommend their services.

Knowledgable and reduced the stress of this process as much as it could be
Stuart and Katie are amazing! I could not recommend them any more highly. The decision to file bankruptcy is not one I took lightly and it took me a long time to finally go this route. I was so incredibly embarrassed and stressed. They are so knowledgeable there weren't any surprises. I just can't say enough about how responsive they are to questions. They helped explain and re-explain complicated issues during a difficult time. I'm grateful for the compassion they have for their clients. It's easy to feel defeated & like a failure when going through this and they help to ease that a bit.

The Best!
Stuart and Katie made us feel comfortable. We were so nervous to go through this process and they both walked us through each step. Every time I needed help with something they were there. They were prompt in returning emails and phone calls too. We highly recommend Stuart Whitehair.

Scary but great service
Consulted 3 other attorneys before deciding on Mr Whitehair and his assistant Katie. They were very helpful in this scary process. I would highly recommend.

Bankrupty Reveiw
Stuart and his Legal Secretary Katie where so professional and helpful. They really where very repectful and kind through the whole process. They were always available to answer questions and to calm my fears. I can not say enough about how repectful they were to me. Because I had a really hard time with filing Bankrupty. They assured me at every turn that it would work out fine. Not only did they give the tools to go through the process. They also gave me the tools to work through my money problems and build a better future.So I would recommend them to anyone facing Bankrupty. Very knowlodgeable about the laws and the proceedings of the Court system. Very great service.

Debt Relief Was Exceptional
A very congruent and coherent process for personal economic reset. Katie and Stuart were very precise with guidance through the process.

Painless Bankruptcy
Stuart asked me questions about my financial situation to determine the correct way to proceed. He never judged me. He had pre-printed pages that explained precisely what to expect in the bankrupty process, and what paperwork I should gather. Katie was wonderful to work with, had many great suggestions and tips, and patiently answered my questions. Highly recommend.

I highly recommend Stuart Whitehair
What an amazingly wonderful and freeing experience! I had feared doing this for years: I was terrified of the stigma. With Stuart's assistant Katie's help and support, we were able to pull the necessary information to file. Do yourself a favor: call for an appointment and get yourself on the road to personal freedom. I highly recommend Stuart Whitehair and Katie to all. They are worth every penny. For all that they do, the value is incredible. My calls were always answered promptly; all questions were quickly responded to as important and fully answered. I am proud to recommend Stuart Whitehair's firm.

It isn't scary, I promise.
I delayed this process for two years out of fear. I only caused myself deeper trouble by delaying. It is very easy to do with Katie and Stuart's help. They walk you through everything and all you really have to do is provide them with the proper paperwork and show up for about 5 questions in a 5 minute court session. It is NOTHING to be afraid of. They are both terrific and I wish I had completed the process as soon as I consulted with Stuart initially.

Excellent service! Hired!
Bankruptcy was a very hard decision for me... After making one quick easy phone call I had an appointment within days! I was a nervous wreck the morning I went in, when I walked in I was greeted by Katie (Stuart's assistant). I instantly felt more relaxed! They are the best team I could have ever had! My first appointment they explained absolutely EVERYTHING that was going to go on. I called several times with questions and they were always right there with the answer! So HAPPY that I chose Stuart Whitehair as my attorney! Now this part of my life is closed and I can move forward and better myself. Without a doubt in my mind I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this office if you are searching for an Attorney!

Never thought bankruptcy would be such a pleasant experience!
My husband and myself were drowning in medical and credit card debt. While we had tossed around the idea of bankruptcy, I had no clue where to begin. Stuart Whitehair came recommended to me through a trusted friend. From our first consultation I knew we had made the right decision not only in terms of the bankruptcy, but also in choosing a lawyer that would be there for us every step of the way. Stuart and Katie are both professional, courteous, and extremely helpful! I would recommend their services to anyone who is facing a similar situation.

He took the Stress Away
My wife and I were very stressed about our financial situation. Upon our first meeting with Stuart, we already started to feel better. He was professional, helpful....not judgmental at all. He helped guide us through the process of successfully filing bankruptcy. He has really seen it all when it comes to bankruptcy and knew how to handle any situation we threw at him. His experience was very reassuring. He is always prompt with answering questions, and his assistant Katie is excellent as well. I could not recommend anyone more. For what we paid Stuart, the value was tremendous.

Excellent Legal Services, Highly Recommend!
I had been agonizing for months over the decision to declare bankruptcy. After a phonecall to Stuart, within a week, he met with me and explained the entire bankruptcy process in great detail and made me feel much more at ease during a very difficult time. This was a gut wrenching decision for me to make, and I appreciated Stuart's thoughtful and non judgemental approach to working with me. Katie, Stuart's legal assistant, was wonderful to work with as well, very compassionate and understanding. Now I am allowed to move forward in my life free of debt and with a renewed commitment to manage my finances with a new level of consciousness. I personally could not have completed the bankruptcy process without the team at Stuart Whitehair at my side. Thank you for your service!

Excellent Service and Difficult Situation made Easy
I had been contemplating filing bankruptcy for quite some time and finally consulted with Mr. Whitehair. I am so glad I did! In the initial consultation he was so thorough and explained everything so it was easy to understand. He mapped out the events that would take place and what would be expected of me. Needless to say I had no reservations about hiring Mr. Whitehair., He and his assistant Katie made the process easy and very smooth.
