More than just a lawyer
I was referred to Tara by a mutual friend. I was hesitant at first but after our first phone conversation I was very comfortable letting her handle my bankruptcy. She was always there and available anytime I had a question. When I gave her all my paperwork it was a pile of chaos but within a matter of an hour she had it all organized and ready to go. She kept me informed about everything thst was done involving my case. When it came time for court she was right there by my side. . Well across the table anyway. But non the less she has helped me every step of the way. And since my court date she has checked in to ensure that everything is going as should be She is awesome and I would recommend her as anyone's first choice. Thanks Tara!!!!!!!!

We found the right one !
Tara knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into, or out of. We were uneasy and sad, and she pulled us through the particulars with humor, confidence and compassion. Fast. She got every form we needed into our hands, explained it all meticulously in regular english, and did not miss a thing. She is AVAILABLE almost immediately...even now ...for help with small questions we have about the fallout from a bankruptcy . So much relief. We never felt lost, put down, or like we deserved this ...She is professional, navigated all the scary court stuff with respect and affection ( yes, affection !) and has told us exactly what to expect while we are finding our footing again.
