Professional advice
Charlie advised my husband and me that a bankrupcy was not going to be helpful resolving our financial situation. However, he did suggest alternatives that would address specific concerns we had regarding our future plans. Since we originally went to him thinking our only recourse was bankrupcy, we were impressed his advice was not to spend more time and money pursuing something that would only benefit an attorney, and not the client.

Great Attorney
The guys are wonderful people to work with and they are very accessible and always willing to answer any questions you may have no matter how stupid you think they may be. I will definately recommend they and use them again if needed in the future.

Great Attorney!
Deciding to file bankruptcy was not an easy decision. Mr. Glanzer spent a great deal of time with me and my husband discussing the various options available to us. He answered all of our questions and always returned our calls and emails. Thanks to him, my husband and I now have our fresh start. We are so grateful for his compassion and time. I highly recommend him.

Very Helpful during a stressful time
I so appreciated Mr. Glanzer's patience in helping me through a challenging time. He took the time to explain everything to me very thoroughly to be sure I fully understood. I'm very grateful to have found him and would highly recommend him.

Charles is an excellent attorney. All of our questions were answered and no question was looked at as dumb. They give all their clients their full attention and you don't see that with too many lawyers. Though we have finished our case with them, they still took the time to answer questions that I had afterward. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a bankruptcy attorney. Forget all the others, Charles and Jeff are the real deal.
