they work to fully understand your case
John and his team were such a big help. Our home went into foreclosure by our HOA and due to whatever reasoning we weren’t notified until it was already sold. We had no idea what to do when we got referred to John, he spent over an hour on the phone trying to fully understand our situation and help us figure out what we could do to save our home. I would recommend this firm to anyone in need of a real estate lawyer.

You're never alone with this firm
Hannah was great throughout the whole process. She we handleded all the details of our case. With COVID going on, certain things took a little longer than normal, but she made sure to keep us updated at every step of the way. It was great to know you had someone always checking on your case.

Don't know what we would've done without them
We are so grateful to have found Helstowski Law Firm. The situation we were in, we had no idea what to do or how to move forward. John and his team really jumped in and saved us. Everyone was so nice and ready to help and answer any questions we had. John is so knowledgeable about the process and it helped us feel comfortable knowing he was on our side. Definitely would recommend to anyone needing a real estate lawyer.

Got us out of a very bad situation
We were facing a foreclosure eviction and were terrified and clueless in what to do. John and his team walked us through the whole process and all possibilities of how it would all play out. Made us confident in hiring him and his firm. They were patient with us, always available and in the end got us out of a situation where we were certain we would lose everything. I would definitely recommend them to anyone facing similar situations as our own.

Great law firm!
John helped us out so much throughout the entire process. At one point my husband was able to meet with him when I wasn't. So the next time I was available, he made sure to go over everything with me so I completely understood the process of everything that was happening with our case and made sure I was comfortable with all decisions being made. So happy we found them to help us through this rough time.

An attorney that relates to your issues with passion
John is unlike any attorney I have worked with. He spends the time to understand the broader issues and not just the facts. He has an amazing ability to lay out everything that is impacting your personal and business finances coupled with deep knowledge of bankruptcy and credit laws to help entrepreneurs navigate this scary world. I truly have appreciated all of John's time and advice and the energy he has put into helping me out of legal matters for which his firm focuses on.

Schrodingers cat
If you hire this firm not only will they not solve your case, they will give you the benefit of never calling or touching base with you. You might as well light your money on fire or give it to a family member who will never pay you back. It’s really a Ponzi scheme by which they take your money to “work on your case” and claim that this money was for services rendered but not services were ever completed. The fact that the bar allows such pond scum to operate in such a de facto manner shows how little the legal industry is regulated and maintained. Because somebody like this should face repurchasing and an inquiry for bilking customers and obfuscating. I’d give no stars if I could. I hired them in March and zero, nada, zilch updates or progress and it’s basically November. For a negotiation on a past debt.

Dropped the ball time after time
Hired Mr Helstowski for a bankruptcy case and he dropped the ball at every turn of the case. He failed to get the appropriate documents to the courts in time and my bankruptcy was discharged. He had to file it a second time. It drug on for almost a year. In the end he failed to file vehicle reaffirmation and the proper documents for the mortgage. I lost more than I gained by using him. I do not recommend him. He is very disorganized which leads to more mistakes.

Steer clear
Signed a contract, never did a thing for me or my case. He ignores emails, then when you questioned why he not do anything, he'll email he's no longer representing you despite having a signed agreement. Wouldn't trust him at all! Talks a good game though epically fails to provide!
