Very scary to have to go through this but when you have the right lawyer helping with everything and explaining it, we come out of mr. Boul’s office with ease! If you read about bankruptcy the percentage of people don’t make it through! We did and we couldn’t have done it without all of the office staff and Mr. Boul! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

Mr.Boul has been an enormous help to my husband and I for the last several years. We were having difficulty in controlling our financial matters,so we turned to Mr.Boul. We didn't want to be in this situation, no-one does but not one time did he or his beautiful staff make us feel like we were hopeless.We were treated with respect and kindness.God bless you and your staff Mr.Boul.

Mr. Boul and his staff were wonderful, to say the very least, to work with. They were very professional and understanding. They explained everything in detail and made my process as painless as possible. I highly recommend his firm!

Thorough and quick.
If anyone finds themselves thinking about bankruptcy then Boul and Associates are highly recommended. The staff was professional yet caring. They answered any questions we had which wasn't many cause they took the time to explain and walk us through this unfortunate journey. He gave us hand outs to read with very useful information to help ease any concerns. Paper work was self explanatory and easy to understand and the filing was fairly quick. We would definitely recommend Mr Boul to anyone needing or thinking about bankruptcy.

Review of Boul & Associates
We are very pleased with how professional Mr. Boul and his staff are and would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in the situation where they have to file for bankruptcy. He clearly explains what your options are and what information they need. After all of the paperwork is prepared, he goes over each item very carefully so that his clients understand what to expect, plus he has hand outs he gives for his clients to read to further help them understand the process. Again, my husband & I would highly recommend this firm.
