The Greatest Lawyers you could have.....
GREAT LAWYERS.....Both Paul and Penny are not only great lawyers but they make their Client feel secure during a very trying time. I was TERRIFIED when I first thought about Bankruptcy. After meeting with Penny, I KNEW that they understood the Law and understood how I felt emotionally ( tired, fearful and depressed about my situation). They helped me get through a terrible time in my life ( most will agree that Bankruptcy is not fun) and represented me BETTER than any other Lawyer could have. I am so thankful that I had them represent me and hope that other people that are facing Bankruptcy sit down with Paul and Penny. It will be time well spent. All of my questions were answered whenever I called them. Nice to have a Lawyer answer your questions and your phone calls... Nice to have a Lawyer that you can TRUST...
