Competent & Compassionate
Bankruptcy is hard, but he made the process easier to handle. He explained everything thoroughly, didn't get upset when I asked several questions, and genuinely seemed to understand how hard doing this was for me. I've never had to deal with a lawyer before but he gets an A+ from me. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I were facing an unexpected financial problem. We hired Paul Rea to help us. Paul guided us through the process. His professional experience and kind personality set us at ease. He kept us informed about everything from the beginning to the end. I would highly recommend Paul Rea to represent anyone who needs his expertise. If there was an option for 10 stars, I would pick it.

Paul made this Bankruptcy so easy to understand and guided us through every step. He has a straight forward approach but shows you courtesy and understanding. We were very impressed with his understanding of bankruptcy law, and what we could and could not do. He responded to all our phone calls and emails same day.

Excellent attorney!!
I sought out Paul's services in 2005. I made the decision to file bankruptcy. I had consulted with another attorney before consulting with Paul. The first attorney I met with was arrogant, condescending and suggested that rather than file bankruptcy; I find a second job. He scoffed at me and made it obvious he thought he was better than I was. He told me that he would help me file the bankruptcy, if I decided to do so, but that it wasn't really worth his time. Paul was the complete opposite. It's obvious that he truly cares about helping people; rather than making money. He not only walked me thru the process step by step; he also gave me very helpful advice; that I have been able to pass onto others. I have since referred Paul to 2 other people that were also extremely pleased with Paul.
