Communication & Courtesy
I can't say enough about the Sisson firm and every individual I interacted with there during my case. That includes Mr. Sisson himself, his wife LeAnna (the lead paralegal), their associate Matthew Goodin, and several other staff members. They handled my case with expertise, and most importantly to me, they were excellent at communicating with me in a courteous and respectful manner, and answered every question I asked promptly and professionally. (Additionally, Covid presented some logistical challenges with my hearing, and they walked me through the process in advance.) I highly recommend this firm to anyone going through a bankruptcy case.

Thankful client
Everyone at the office that we dealt with was extremely courteous and helpful. Before court Mr. Sisson spoke with us about what to expect and definitely eased our minds. Highly recommend!

I recently went through the 341 meeting and was nervous like everyone else I meet with David and he answered my questions. I was early so I listened to several cases. Normally would not focus on listening but I noticed a few things that other cases with other lawyers that were not prepared at all and were missing documents and cases had to be continued. David and LeAnna and Megan had me prepared told me what to submit prior to the meeting and what to bring to the 34q meeting. I feel like David and Staff made me prepared for this meeting and I know feel very satisfied that I choose them for my bankruptcy.

Good lawyer, work on assistant
David was very straight forward and very knowledgeable, I just wish his assistant communicated more through email and it wasn't so hard to reach her.

Awesome Experience
We were very pleased with Mr. Sisson and his entire staff. They were always pleasant and returned calls and emails in a timely manner. They were professional and very easy to talk to. I would hire him again if need be. They followed up with us before the court date with an email, regular mail and also a phone call to make sure we did not forget about the court date. Their office also followed up after the court date to remind us to take the post bankruptcy class. Very satisfied with his office

David Sisson handled my bankruptcy.
I had never sought the use of an attorney before. David and his office staff made the whole process of filing bankrupcy a whole lot less stressful and embarrassing. I was guided through the entire process and kept informed of every step to getting my issues resolved. By contacting him I was able to send the debt collection agencies directly to his office and eliminate a lot of stress in my day to day life. He was fantastic.

I was fresh out of a divorce with 3 little kids and overwhelming debt. He was very helpful and explained everything to me and was very knowledgeable. My bankruptcy went smoothly and was a positive outcome for what seemed like a negative situation.

Respectful counsel, problems solved!
Mr Sisson helped me get through a chapter 13 several years ago. I appreciated his honesty and how he explained the process to me. When you're having a financial crisis, it is a blessing to have an attorney who treats you with respect and calms your anxieties. A few years later David also helped me get rid of some 3rd party debt collectors. I highly recommend him for such matters! He will get these issues resolved!
