Robert J. Adams provided excellent direction in our case. He provided up to date information and provided all our options. He was available when needed and worked to get the best result possible for us. He was sympathetic during a difficult time and helped us navigate thru the legal process. His staff is great and I never feel like I am imposing when I call. I would most certainly recommend Robert J. Adams & Associates to anyone who needs bankruptcy help.

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 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 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 highly recommend Robert to anyone considering bankruptcy. He and his staff really go the extra mile, and when you call his office you can talk to a person.

Two years ago I got very sick and was hospitalized. My health insurance paid a lot of the bills but not everything. I got hospitalized 2 more times. I missed a lot of work.
The last time I returned to work my boss said he could not keep me on and then laid me off.
It took a long time to get another job but at a lower salary.
Even though I always paid my bills on time I could not keep up. My credit cards eventually fell behind. They then raised the interest to over 39%. I simply could not pay them.
Last year I even got sued.
I was told that they could take money out of pay check for a very long time.
I called one of the law firms that advertise on TV. They were confusing but I made an appointment anyway.
When I met the lawyer he told me a lot of things I didn’t understand. He kept confusing me. He then he wanted $1,000 to get started on something. I left.
A friend of mine told me to call Robert Adams.
When I called a nice lady took down some information and transferred me Mr. Adams. I explained everything as best I could. He told me to bring certain things to the office. He emphasized that the consultation was free and confidential.
Mr. Adams was friendly and very helpful. He was very patient as I do not speak the best English. He took his time and explained everything. He told me about the filing fee and his fee and how it could be paid over time. He also said if my employer gets something to take money out of my pay he would file the case immediately.
I did file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Everything went smoothly and now I am debt free.
If you have money problems I do think Robert Adams is a good lawyer to talk to.

I came to Robert J. Adams & Associates a couple of years ago because I was in financial distress. Mr. Adams was very understanding to my financial needs. He took his time to explain to me the different chapters of bankruptcy. I felt embarrassed and ashamed about my situation and he assured me that everything would be okay. i would highly recommend Robert J. Adams to my co workers and family because he is truly a debtors attorney and he cares about his clients.
