Mr. Burr answered some very complex questions during my initial consultation, and followed-up to ensure there were no other questikons.

We came to Robert J Adams during a difficult time in our life when we needed to declare bankruptcy. He was very respectful and everything was explained to us very clearly and he took the time to answer all our questions. His staff is amazing and they are real people. Adriane, Tiffany, Robbie, Rickie and Michael, all knew my wife and me and became close friends. Our case was assigned to Michael C. Burr because he goes before our judge. Michael is a great attorney. He always helps us when we call. And when we missed a few payments with the Trustee, he fixed everything. Michael and his wonderful staff were very professional, organized and keep you updated. They always responded to my calls and concerns immediately. Furthermore the fees are reasonable and clearly explained.
Before consulting Mr. Adams, we had consulted with other attorneys and you can keep your Tv attorneys , because last time I filed I went through that nightmare, that tv attorney did not explain the process well and seemed annoyed and difficult to work with they never allowed us to speak to an attorney when we called. It also took us almost 6 months to pay his fees. Mr Adams filed our case for $375 instead of the entire fee ups front. So we know that we were very lucky to have found Mr. Adams and Michael Burr.
After all the stress and money Mr. Michael Burr and Mr. Adams made it possible for us to keep our house, the cars and we got rid of our second mortgage. Now we are able to save money because all of our bills are in one payment. We are very satisfied with his work and we highly recommend him and this law firm to anyone.

Many years ago I found myself divorced and single mother. Although I really tried to make ends meet, I just keep falling behind with my bills. Before going to Robert J. Adams I consulted with two other attorneys that I saw on TV regarding bankruptcy. As soon as I got in the door, they wanted to talk about fees and not my problems, I felt like I was being interrogated and they treated me like I did something wrong. At that time I was working two jobs and had two small children to look after and between rent, household bills and daycare I had no money to pay old credit cards and medical bills. I found Robert J. Adams & Assocates through a close friend of mine. It was like I struck gold, as Robert is not on TV. After consulting with Robert for one minute, I knew that he was the right attorney for me and my family. His staff was so welcoming, Robert’s experience and knowledge provided me with a level of comfort that the other attorneys did not. When my case got complicated and the credit card company filed an adversary, Robert took them to trial, and after 2 days, he won the case. That was over 12 years ago. Recently I had medical problems and after insurance, I still owed the hospital thousands of dollars. After two years of trying to negotiate with the collection companies, I call Robert. He again filed my cases and my life got instantly better. I also got to work with Michael Burr this time. I highly recommend Michael Burr to anyone considering bankruptcy. He was nice, professional and he knows the law.

I endorse this lawyer. Michael's answers and advice are consistently good and well articulated. He has a way of explaining complicated concepts in a way that is easy to understand. I believe that consumer debtors thinking of seeking bankruptcy protection would be well served by retaining Michael to help them.
