My case involved a creditor trying to collect a discharged debt. While the local county court initially ruled in my favor that the debt was no longer collectible, the creditor managed to convince the judge to reverse the ruling so they could continue garnishing my wages illegally. At this point, my former lawyer who assisted me in my original bankruptcy case referred me to Matthew Skeen, Jr.
Right off the bat, Matt seemed extremely knowledgeable about the finer details of bankruptcy laws and I felt confident we would prevail. After all, the law was on our side. The problem was the judge didn’t know bankruptcy laws well and continued to incorrectly rule against us. Our case, which should have been a quick one, took nearly six months but Matt preserved and never gave up.
I will admit, there were times when I thought, “What if they still rule against us?” Whenever that happened, I would reread the filings Matt filed and they were facts, facts, facts and straight to the point. The filings reassured me that there was no way we would lose with Matt’s skills and knowledge of the law.
Our case eventually moved to both the Bankruptcy and District courts, and fortunately the creditor agreed to settle outside the court before proceeding further in the case. Matt was able to recover my garnished wages and I couldn’t be happier.
Matt was very professional throughout the ordeal and I really appreciate how easy it was to communicate with him via email. He was happy to answer any questions that arose and made me comfortable throughout this nerve-wracking experience. Matt is a sound lawyer and I highly recommend him.
Thank you again, Matt.
