I didn't want to have to file bankruptcy but the garnishment got me. I am very happy with Rick and his staff. They did a wonderful job for me and my wife.

I have been given incorrect information twice that I know of so far! In our initial interview I was told
I would be allowed to keep my tax refund if I filed chapter 13 instead of chapter 7. Because I adopted a special needs child and have an adoption credit this is a big deal. With no credit it will allow me to put the
money in savings so it is there should something happen.
When I get the papers I find out I have to submit a copy of my tax return. When I has the lawyers assistant, you never get to speak with the lawyer, she says MOST of the time you get to keep it but the trustee my make you give it up. Why on earth did the lawyer tell me differently???? That is a large portion of the reason I chose to go with a chapter 13 because I qualified to go either way.
When I very first filed I was told not to worry about the money in my checking account. I told him my car loan was through were I got my car. He said since I decided on a chapter 13 I didn't need to worry about it. Wrong....my account was frozen with my rent money in it. They did not unfreeze it until the case went for confirmation so I had to figure out how to come up with rent twice in one month. As many bankruptcy's as he does he should know the law. In the interview I really felt comfortable with him. I thought he cared about his clients. I just don't understand why I was given incorrect information.

Great people! They were all extremely helpful and down to earth. Did not make me feel bad about my situation. They were very understanding and extremely helpful in explaining everything to me. Although I don't wish this on anyone I strongly recommend these guys if you ever find yourself in this terrible situation. They are definitely who you want on your side.
