Excellent work and prompt turnaround
I hired Burton with Hood & Stacy and he did an outstanding job handling my issue. If you need a good lawyer to come to your defense, hire Mr. Stacy.

Very Helpful
We were dealing with a mountain of credit card debt as a result of a job loss and Mr. Stacy was able to negotiate the larger sums and get us back into a position of solvency.

Small firm but with large firm technology
While this maybe considered a small firm it is very active firm that strives to do all they can for their clients. This firm stays up to date on new technologies along with the laws to insure they are providing their clients with the best service possible.

Vice President
This firm has handled 90% of the foreclosure and bankruptcy work for our company for the last 6 years. They have been able to handle the increase in the workload without disruption of the excellent service we have always received. When we wanted to transmit files electronically, they embraced the technology that enabled this to occur. We receive monthly updates on all cases. Communication has been very important and new developments in our cases have been reported to us in a timely manner. Unusual developments and/or possible outcomes are always discussed with us in advance if possible. The attorneys in this firm have readily accepted and learned how important loss mitigation and alternatives to foreclosure are to our organization. We have had many instances where their communication with our borrower has led to a positive outcome and allowed someone to remain in their home. Mr. Stacy and the other attorneys in the firm are very responsive to the needs of our organization during the economic changes experienced in this market. They have researched new laws, regulations and legal precedents and shared this information with our staff. Mr. Stacy and his staff have become familiar with the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA and VA regulations with regard to the foreclosure, loss mitigation and bankruptcy processes. Also, we have been able to refer cases to them in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri which has streamlined our process. This is a great firm to work with and I would recommend them highly!

Collections Manager
I have worked with Burton E Stacy Jr as one of my company's collection attorneys for more than 7 years. I have been more than pleased with each month's overall collection totals, which equal around $14,000 to $20,000 weekly. He & his staff never fail to return our calls. I have several people from my office that may be contacting his office in one day to get an update on 1 account or another, either by email or phone, & they are always fast, friendly, courteous and highly knowledgable with their responses. They can always tell me if the debtor has been served, gone to court, received a judgment, or if we just need a judge's signature. I would highly recommend Burton E Stacy Jr to anyone who is needing an attorney.

Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Dec 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Over the last 20 years, i have been involved with Mr. Stacy on a variety of legal matters involving bankruptcy, debt collection and creditors' rights. I recommend him without reservation for these matters in Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. He is a tireless advocate for his clients and a legal scholar in these areas of law. He has the unique ability to analyze complicated legal and business issues and condense those problems into simpler terms for clients. Most importantly, he can then find creative, cost-effective solutions to these problems. He is a trusted advisor and always willing to understand the concerns of a client, whether they be financial or otherwise. On top of his legal credentials, he is also a true gentleman in a field where that is becoming a rarer quality. I am delighted to call him a friend, trusted colleague and worthy adversary."
