Chapter 13
I made a consultation with Vicky to figure out which path was best for me and my financial circumstances. During my consult, I decided to hire Vicky. Her advice and experience helped ease my fear about what the future held. During my 5 year Chapter 13 bankruptcy, anytime I had a question, I would either call or send an e-mail and it was answered promptly and courteously. I highly recommend Vicky and her staff for their compassion, knowledge and expertise.

Knowledgeable, Trustworthy, Kind and Empathetic!
I cannot begin to express my gratitude towards Vicky Fealy and her staff ( Sandra & Faye). After losing my husband, I turned to them for a bankruptcy consultation. They walked me through the entire process, answered my phone calls and multiple emails. The amount of patience I received is a testament to their professionalism and genuineness. Thank you again for all your help! BTW - Hire her!

Magnificent Law Firm! "Vicky M. Fealy and Sandra"
I have used the Fealy Law firm twice and both times they were very attentive and helped with my anxieties about the debit that closing in on me. They were with me through the whole process from beginning to end! Sandra works so hard to get you the answers you need so quickly and solicitous matter. No one rushes you or makes you feel like a walking dollar sign. They have compassion and will be there to help every step of the way! Don't waste your time or money get to working with them right away! Blessings and all the best on your continued success Vicky, Sandra, and the firm!!

Just What I Needed
I found myself into major debt after the death of my wife and son. She made me feel like everything would be okay. I could finally breath again. She won my case and you should let her do the same for you!

A Very Helpful Meeting
We were very happy with our talk with Vicky. She gave us pros and cons of the different options available to us. She was very informative. She was very nice and relieved our fears of a very stressful situation. We were finally able to sleep after our consultation.

Thank you Vicky
When I realized I needed a chapter 7 lawyer I learned my case seemed to be “too hard” and/or “too small” for other lawyers I contacted. Vicky Fealy, however, was different; she was not put off with any aspect of my case including the long-term IRS debt that had overwhelmed me for years and I never felt she thought I was “too small” to bother with. I am 100% satisfied with the results she obtained for me through bankruptcy court and would recommend her to anyone unfortunate enough to need to go through bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Attorney
After researching online for help in this area we came across Ms Vicky Fealy site, we made an appointment and had a great visit. She was very compassionate and throughout the meeting explained in detail the process and pitfalls. I am very happy we met. We hired her the next morning after discussions at home and reading the literature she provided for the different types of bankruptcy chapters and how it all worked. I would highly recommend her to any one who finds themselves in this situation.

Vicky is truly a wonderful person
My wife and I feel very blessed to have found Vicky. It is rare to find an attorney who is as compassionate as she is. Going through bankruptcy is a humbling experience. Vicky was very supportive and truly took the time to understand our circumstances. I appreciate her integrity and direct honesty to all of our "what if" questions. Our case was approved automatically and we did not have to make a second trip to the courthouse. It is because of Vicky's thoroughness and years of experience that made this so easy.

Excellence of Fealy Legal Services
My wife and I are clients of the Fealy law firm. Vicki Fealy and her staff are superb - they asked insightful questions in the initial consultation and have always keep us informed of the overall process and numerous obligations required to successfully navigate through a Chapter 13 proceeding. Moreover, Ms. Fealy is an unusual combination of a deeply knowledgeable professional and an open, engaging personality sensitive to a client's unique circumstances. Given that she is a board-certified attorney in this particular field of legal expertise, we are confident Ms. Fealy will always stand ably on our behalf so we can attain a successful conclusion to our Chapter 13.

Always there for us!
My husband and I just completed a 5 year Chapter 13. We chose Ms. Fealy as our bankruptcy lawyer and so happy that we did. Ms. Fealy and her staff has been a delight to work with. Her knowledge, experience and compassion for our situation has always been outstanding. She explained each step we would go through which relieved a lot of stress we were having and helped us to see there was a light at the end of the dark tunnel we were in. Her & her staff returned every phone call & email within 24 hours. The service we received from Ms. Fealy was superior. She was always available for us the whole 5 years. We would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a bankruptcy lawyer. We are so happy we chose Ms. Fealy as our lawyer.

Vicky Fealy "Fantastic Attorney"
I have know Vicky for almost 5 years. She is kind and has a beautiful personality. She explains to me throughly any issues that I don't understand. She is an attorney who responds promptly to messages and emails. She really fights for the clients best interest! I highly recommend her. It is not very often that an attorney has empathy for a client's tears and frustrations... Thank you Ms Fealy for ALL your help, and may God continue to bless you.

Best legal advice I could have ever received!
I can't begin to tell you how much stress has been lifted from my shoulders after my experience with Vicky Fealy. In the beginning I felt like I would never be able to recover from a bankruptcy but after working with Miss Fealy I realized it was the best decision I had ever made. I only wish I would have made it sooner. Miss Fealy gave me great legal advice and made sure I was completely comfortable in the decision I was making. She never once pressured me and told me to take as much time as I needed to make sure I was making the correct decision for myself. My credit is now better than it was prior to my bankruptcy and all my stress is gone. I feel like I've been able to actually start living again. I would refer her to anyone, including my own family. I believe she is the best at what she does. Thank you to Vicky and her staff for being so nice and making my experience easy and stress free! :)

Be Careful!
Filed a ch 13 and things were going well. Husband then lost job and payments were unable to be kept up. We were told to try and make payments. No modification or revision was offered even though I kept calling and asking what we can do. 6 months later we were told to be in court to have case dismissed for non-payment. Lost tons of money in this process and a car. House is almost in foreclosure now as well. Stay on the representatives at this law firm. Returning calls is not something that happens often.

Response from Vicky Fealy June 5, 2013
I and my law firm do everything possible to help clients through the difficult times that occur within the life of a Chapter 13. This includes maintaining open lines of communication with the client at all times. If a debtor falls more than two monthly payments behind, the Chapter 13 Trustee may file a Motion to Dismiss for failure to maintain payments. If a dismissal is filed, The Fealy Law Firm, P.C. sends a letter to the client which is followed up by an email and a phone call to discuss options and make sure the client is aware of the dismissal hearing. If there is a change in circumstances during a Chapter 13 plan, a modification may be filed to catch up on delinquent payments in certain situations. Unfortunately, a plan can only be modified if there is sufficient income to fund the modified plan. This is something I discuss with each client in their initial consultation as well as anytime the problem arises during a Chapter 13 plan. Clients are always welcome to schedule an appointment with me if they have any questions regarding their case. I pride myself on accessibility to clients. Every client phone call is taken or returned. The Fealy Law Firm, P.C. has a 24 hour policy on returning phone calls. All phone calls must be returned within 24 hours unless it is a week-end call, then the call is returned first thing Monday morning. In most instances, phone calls are taken immediately as the office is fully staffed between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
