My experience with Mr. Cortese was quite positive. He is extremely professional and to the point. I understand how some people might consider him "rude", but you must understand that he is not there to be your friend. He is there to conduct business, and in my opinion he does it quite well. He expects the same professionalism from ud as we do him, and I'd expect nothing less. Think of it as a doctors appointment. If you are late or running into obstacles, you reschedule. Neither doctors or lawyers want or will stand for wasted time, that time could be used for clients who show up. He was very thorough, listened to my concerns and answered all questions. My bankruptcy was complete and finalized within 6 weeks. I have had to contact him a few times since with additional questions or even to request a copy of the bankruptcy paperwork be resent. He was quick to answer my questions and responded to my requests. His fees and my overall monthly payments were reasonable. I am very happy and would use him again. Thank you Mr. Cortese.
