Mr. Chambers took the bull by the horns and went for it. He represented us very professionally and kept us updated the whole time. He did his homework and came through for us. We would definitely recommend him.

Joseph Chambers was recommend by a good friend of ours. We made an appointment to see him. Joe Chambers took the time to explain everything about the bankruptcy programs and help us decide which one it would benefit us more according to our situation. We felt very comfortable with him. What stood out more to us is that we did not felt that we were judged By him. He was very kind and understanding and that ment alot to us! We would keep him as our lawyer for any legal things that will come our way in the future and we would also highly recommend him to family and friends.
