He changed my life.
I didn't think anyone would understand or care what I was going through. Karl Wulff showed me he really cared what I was going through. He explained everything to me in terms I could understand. Any time I had questions, he was there to answer them. He did change my life the day I hired him. I was so lucky to find him.

Great Lawyer
Mr. Wulff was great. I was new to court system and he was very helpful and willing to take the time to talk me through everything. I was never in the dark and always knew what was going on. Anytime I ever had a question he answered me back right away! Two Thumbs up!

Karl was very patient, understanding and kind. Bankruptcy after divorce is very scary, Karl made the process easy to understand and was there step by step. Could not imagine a nicer guy to help me with such a lifechanging event. Thank you Karl. And Anna, wow she is just as kind, patient and understanding. Was pleasure working with you both.

Mr. Wulff made our chapter 13 bankruptcy a simple process
We felt confident from day one. He laid down his ground rules from the very beginning, with homework that was easy to follow. He was prompt with answers to any questions we had. His secretary was patient with us when documents were needed. He kept us informed through phone calls and emails. My wife and I were already feeling bad for being in this situation. But after leaving his office on day one we were already put at ease through his confidence and knowledge. We got an education in bankruptcy and how people end up in them. With that knowledge we hope to never be in one again. We highly recommend Mr. Wulff. If anything, take his free consultation.

I was didn't have no idea what to do & was very over whelmed with stress until I talked to Karl. He sat me & my husband down & explain to us different ways of dealing with our debts & how to help us keep from repeating it again. We realized how much he had helped our family more than he knows. We thank you and your team greatly! Carl & Bobbie
