American Dream realized
Five years ago my wife advised to file for bankruptcy. I was reluctant to reach out to an attorney fearing that my financial status would take the worst turn. After dealing with so much turmoil over the next 3 years I took her advice and searched for a bankruptcy attorney. I made two calls. The first one was to Thomas Black and the other I do not remember. I chose Mr Black because of his honest approach that made me feel like this was not the worst thing that could happen to me. In fact, it was the BEST. After he and his TEAM guided me through the process and helped me file it was as if a great weight was lifted. I felt financially responsible again which I always prided myself of being. I recently became more financially stable and decided to purchase a home. With the guidance of Mr Black and his team I was able to get an approved loan and they helped me get the approval from the Bankruptcy Court to take on the additional Mortgage debt. I can't even imagine the number of folks Mr Black and his team have helped get back on track to a normal and productive life. Thank you for helping my wife and I realize that the American Dream is still possible for those who truly want to be financially responsible even after a setback.

Amazing ,Honest Attorney
Thomas Black is the most amazing attorney ever! He is knowledgeable, honest and ethical. Black gave us our life back and helped us to reorganize our debt in a Chapter 13. We were able to save our home and vehicles and return to actually enjoying life again. Mr. Black's staff is equally wonderful. You are treated with respect and dignity at all times at this office. Mr. Black understands that people have peaks and valleys in their financial life and that just because you may be in a bad situation today, you don't have to stay in a bad situation. Mr. Black give you a honest and ethical pathway back to financial health. I highly recommend this skilled attorney.

Ceitique Law Office of J. Thomas Black, P. C
I am a current client of Mr. J. Thomas Black, and very appreciative of the successful accomplishments the Law Office have achieved in my bankruptcy case. Attorney Selection Review When the bankruptcy decision was made to be the best viable option, solicitations were made to various firms for proposals of their services. After the request for proposals were received, I was inundated with all sorts of claims their firms can offer regarding my situation and why their firm should be the one chosen. Given very careful evaluations of the serious proposals, the subject firm was chosen because of the office past experience, a Board Certified Attorney, and the attorney ability to perform in my bankruptcy proceeding in the highest manner. The Law office Effort The staff assigned to my case is a paralegal, administrator, and a second attorney to represent me in areas of formalities where the Principal Attorney needs not to attend. I am pleased with the office staff accomplishments in the progress obtained with my case thus far, and impressed with the individual contributions, and professionalism should cause the staff to look back on their experience with a great deal of satisfaction and pride in their achievements. Summary My experience with the law office has been a good one, and to my surprise much better than expected. I based my comment on previous experiences with different law offices representing me on other matters where the outcomes were not as efficient, honest, cooperative, and above board in all interactions with the entire staff of Mr. Black’s Law Office. I believe that Mr. J. Thomas Black is an excellent attorney with many years of experience (30); that in its self says volumes about Mr. Black’s capabilities more than I can mention in this Critique. Therefore, if I was asked about his law office services my recommendation would be speak to him and judge for you self. Finally, if you do decide to hire Mr. Black Law Office for their services, look for his handshake to seal the deal and you will leave the office feeling confident your concerns will be taking care of in your best interest. A very satisfied client

Tom Black Cares And Has The Talent And Resources To Help You Solve Your Financial Problems
I am not one of Tom Black's clients. I am a bankruptcy litigation attorney with my own practice. I have had the opportunity to work with Tom Black over the years. The main thing for me is that he cares about the financial needs and situations of his clients. Then he backs this up with a unique and detailed understanding of the law, the rules and the courts in which he practices. And, he does so in an efficient and diligent manner that strives to get the work assigned to him completed as flawlessly and quickly as possible. That really has to be appreciated because when someone or some family needs bankruptcy legal representation, it is generally urgent. The bankruptcy process can be technically complicated and confusing, and a client has to have faith that all possible measures have been explored, explained, and are being effectively utilized on his or her behalf. That faith is justified in regard to J. Thomas Black & Associates. In addition to all of this, what I appreciate overall is that Tom Black conveys a sense of calm that the financial situation, no matter how bad, frustrating or anxious can be temporary and, with some effort, will work out for the best. This calm comes from the good work he, and his office, does every day in every case.

Unbelievable knowledge and experiance.
After meeting with Mr. Black, I felt at ease and the heavy weight had been lifted off my shoulders. He is a wealth of knowledge and many years of experiance. The best part for me was when he did not know something, he let me know and researched my needs and requirements and came back to me with answers. His staff are bar none the best complement to Mr. Black's experiance. They kept me informed on the steps and up to date on the process. Great experiance with a great team even though it was for bankruptcy. Thank you Mr. Black and staff for the making my life a bit easier.

Best Attorney
My husband and I went to Mr. Black after a very bad experience. Mr. Black and his team made sure we knew what our options were and guided us through the process. Once everything was handled Mr. Black and his team have always been available for questions we had/have. If they receive anything notifications they make sure they notify us and provide us copies of everything. Nothing is a secret.

Excellent Service and Peace of Mind
We received excellent service and peace of mind that blessed us in our time of crisis. We are suffering from an adjustment in our income due to the current economic climate. We went from over $150,000+ annual income to about $110,000. We were fearful of loosing our home and cars. Thank God we saw Attorney John Thomas Black's website. We checked out other attorneys, but Attorney John Thomas Black made us feel secure in knowing we had options that would work for us. Attorney John Thomas Black and his staff, especially Rob took care of us. His office responded to our messages and e-mails within one business day or less. The law office usually responded the same day they received my communication. We are blessed to still have our home and cars, plus we are about $100,000 less in debt. We hated having to file bankruptcy. However, once we accepted bankruptcy as one of our legal rights as a US citizen to have a fresh start we began to release a lot of stress immediately.

Great service!
I am an attorney (not a bankruptcy attorney) who recently went through some hard times. My family had hit rock bottom financially and had no idea what to do. As I had no knowledge of bankruptcy law, I did not know where to turn. After someone recommended Mr. Black, I called and scheduled an appointment. Following our meeting with Mr. Black and his staff, my wife and I felt immediate relief. Mr. Black and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, organized, and responsive. Whenever I had questions, I received prompt responses which specifically answered those questions. After our case concluded, Mr. Black went the extra mile in making sure our credit reports were accurately updated. I have nothing but good things to say about Mr. Black and his firm. Anytime I have a client, friend, or family member that needs help in this area, I send them to Mr. Black.
