Going the Extra Mile
I have to comment on the Big Easy Law Groups friendly service and attention to detail. My meeting with Jenny Abshier was more than I expected. As she reviewed my petition for chapter 7 bankruptcy she discovered a social security overpayment that I was not aware of that could also be a dischargeable debt. Her experience in Bankruptcy law saved me thousands of dollars. They made the Bankruptcy process really easy for me to follow by providing me with, literature on several official credit counseling services with step-by-step instructions included, a map showing the location of the creditors meeting ,an internet resource for additional bankruptcy information ,sending out reminders, and finally going the extra mile by offering payment options if needed. Because of their knowledge, and friendly service I have recommended the Big Easy Law Group to my family and friends.

Saved my sanity
Jenny Abshier is a brilliant attorney. She walked me through every step of the bankruptcy, answering all of my questions. She made sure I understood what to expect before we even started the process. She also looked at all my options and recommended the best course of action for my situation. During the process, she was always happy to answer any question I had and reassure me that I was doing the right thing. Thanks to her services and her guidance my credit score has gone up 67 points in the 9 months since my bankruptcy finished!

Happy
I spoke with Ms. Abshier several times before actually meeting her. I hadn't decided if I was going to file for bankruptcy but after speaking with Ms. Abshier and getting all f my questions answered, I decided to move forward with the process. It was much easier than I expected and now that my case has been discharged, I'm glad I decided to file for bankruptcy.
