Great job
I filed a chaper 7 bankruptcy using Mr. Cooper. In essence it’s really just paperwork and it’s all done before you get to court, making the court appearance almost a formality as oversight against abuse. There were several lawyers at my hearing but Waylon was one of few that had their self together and more importantly had my paperwork together. I can’t count the number of times that the other lawyers didn’t have the proper paperwork. Anyway I’m very satisfied and highly recommend Mr. Cooper.

Helpful and genuine
Spent in excess of 2 hours with me on a free consultation. Walked away with options and delayed filing for bankruptcy. Genuinely a good man
