Very resourceful lawyer cleared my name of the bad list frome people who promised to do me right but instead when the chips were down for me all the wanted was to crucify me while all the other credits where willing to give me breathing room so for that I that you very much

Professional, kind and responsive!
The best phone I could have made to help with my finances was calling Weston Legal. My lawyer was Sarah and Lorinda the paralegal. From the first phone call until my case was settled, they put me at ease about the whole process and were very responsive and thorough with all my questions. Before calling them, I felt overwhelmed and beyond stressed, but their kind demeanor and excellent customer service, made this part of my life so much easier. My case was also settled with a great outcome! I would absolutely recommended Weston Legal to anybody who is needing their services.

Great service
I cannot say enough good about the way that Weston Legal, PLLC, handled our bankruptcy filing. Filing bankruptcy is not something that I took on lightly. It is by definition a major life event and it can be extremely frightening. The staff at Weston were professional and went out of their way to communicate and even comfort along the way. Stephanie Roman, the Paralegal assigned to our case, was always available and ensured that we filed all of the proper paperwork and took all courses required by the court. Sarah Callahan Garcia, the Bankruptcy Attorney assigned to our case, treated us with courtesy and professionalism. I cannot imagine trying to navigate this alone. Thanks.

Best Bankruptcy attorney in Houston
I hired Mr. Peter Walter Weston to file my bankruptcy but honestly what made everything a breeze was my case attorney Jessica Anderson who made it so easy for me to complete all the paperwork and answer all my million questions. Honestly filing a bankruptcy is not easy but because of Jessica it was so easy and I encourage anyone to work with Jessica because she knows how to work with clients because I made so many errors and Jessica was patient with me the whole time and helped me through everything. I'm at such a good place right now all thanks to Jessica Anderson and Peter Weston. In my case all credit goes to Jessica because she spent hours and worked on my case for weeks making sure everything was correct and error free. Thank you so much

Great lawyer
I don't leave ratings almost never, so for me to this speaks volumes. Weston legal was very patient with me. I had a hard time coming up with the money and they worked with me the whole way. One of the best things I can say is that they always returned any calls or emails and it didn't take days. Always took the time to answer any questions I had. Melissa and Jessica were great to me and I will always appreciate that.
