Experience You Can Trust
Going through bankruptcy is unsettling and difficult, to say the least. You want an attorney who makes you feel confident your best interests are at the forefront and you're guided through the process with the wisdom of experience. Bob made me as comfortable as one can be going through a difficult time, always answering my questions with great clarity. Feeling like I understood all my options and each step of the process brought peace and confidence that I was doing what was best for me. If you're facing bankruptcy and looking for help navigating the storm, I can't say enough about Mr. Montgomery and his staff. They will not let you down.

Fantastic experience
Mr. Montgomery and his staff were amazing. It was a very difficult and stressful time for us and they made us feel we were well taken care of and at ease. Mr.Montgomery is a patient and intelligent person who helped us get to the light at the end of the tunnel.

This is the second time I hired Bob, once for me and a second for my mother. I always felt secure knowing Bob was handling everything and there were never surprises! I would recommend Bob to anyone looking to start over financially! You are in good hands with Bob!!!!

This attorney is great. His highest concern is representing you and feels the job of an attorney is to serve the people. This attorney listened patiently about my concerns without passing judgment on my situation. No interruptions occurred during our consultation while he gave his full attention to me and my case. Mr. Montgomery is vastly experienced, good humored, likeable, honest, and makes you feel you can trust him. He tells you exactly what he is going to do to help you. This man is a REAL person, not the usual characterization of an attorney as ruthless, rude, uncaring and generally unlikable. I held little hope that I would find such a good person working in the field of law. He comes highly recommended by me. Contact him!

Bob and his staff have been helpful, honest and non-judgemental in the handling of my case. They helped in guiding me through this stressful experience. Without them, I do not think I would have made it through this. Even after the closed case, they still help me with answering questions and recommendations to building my credit. I want to thank all of you for helping me start my life over!

Thanks Nicole and Robert!
I filed a chapter 13 a few years ago and have been working with the Montgomery law office since. I mostly worked with Nicole and while she wasn't always easy to get a hold of I didn't mind because every time I left a message or email I knew my request was in good hands and was always taken care of! I have paid off my bk now and am starting fresh now, thanks Robert and Nicole!

professional representation
Rebecca represented me in a modification of decision making. From the first initial interview her attentiveness and discussing the law in a way that i could understand, she made me feel comfortable and gave me the courage to go forward with my case. I am a single mom who had a pro-bono attorney with my divorce and didnt feel i got represented well. You get what you pay for. Rebecca was very understanding and had great communication with me and ensured me to let her do the worrying, and everything will be fine. When court days came she impressed me with her skills and tactics which i received 90 percent of what i wanted and expected. I would highly recommend her to everyone without hesitation. Its not all about winning but how she made me feel and and made this case less stressful for me. I just wanted to say thank you so much. Melissa
