| Hired Attorney
One of the Best
When I first started thinking about filing bankruptcy I started reading online what my options were. Then I started making appointments with lawyers to see what they could tell me. Every single one pushed me to file Chapter 13 vs Chapter 7, they would tell me things that I knew were not true. Then I met William Turner, he was the first lawyer who told me the whole truth. He layed it out from all angles and let me put the pieces together. He didn't try to push me either way. I knew he was being honest because I could verify everything he said through other sources. Once I made the decision to file he made the process very easy. He was straight forward and no nonsense. The best thing I ever did was hire him to file my bankruptcy. He is most definitely the best lawyer I have ever met and believe me I have met many.

Excellent Lawyer
I was recently in need of a Bankruptcy Lawyer. After having consultations with several lawyers I decided to have Mr. Turner represent me. Little did I know that this was one of the best decisions I would ever make. Mr. Turner advised me on all the information and paperwork that he would need from me. He gave me a cost of what the process was going to cost me and explained the cost of any extras. With the guidance of his staff getting all the information that he required was a breeze for me to get together. Anytime I called his office my call was returned within 24 hours and 99% of the time it was within a few hours. He has a very knowledgeable and helpful staff. On court day Mr. Turner made a very professional appearance while there were other lawyers there (that I had consultations with) that because of the way they were dressed didn't look like lawyers. My Turner and his staff made a very hard situation a lot easier for me. Because of the guidance and good communications his staff provides the initial price that Mr. Turner gave me is exactly what it cost me so there were no surprises. I am very thankful for him and his staff and will definitely recommend him to friends and family.

"Over the years, I have sent every request for a Kansas bankruptcy referral to Mr. Turner. The feedback I received in each instance has been that Mr. Turner and his staff thoroughly educate their clients regarding the alternatives to bankruptcy, the process of bankruptcy and the associated costs. Then, once the client makes an informed decision to proceed, Mr. Turner and his staff provide their services promptly, courteously and for the fee quoted. Every time I make a referral outside my practice area I put my reputation on the line. When that referral is to Mr. Turner, however, I am confident he will meet and even exceed expectations. I endorse Mr. Turner without reservation."
