Bankruptcy 7
From the moment I met with Matt I was treated so well. He made me feel comfortable about the whole process. Matt and Staff had great patience with me. And the Bankruptcy went so smooth just as Matt said it would. I would recommend Matt to anyone in need of a bankruptcy attorney. He is very knowledgeable.

Chapter 7 and Redemption
Thank you to Matt Foley and Associates for the expertise during such a stressful time. I would Highly recommend Matthew Foley and Halee Wood his Paralegal Office Manger. Attorney Foley was upfront and to the point telling it like it is a no nonsense approach. Cheaper 7 and redemption wasn’t an easy decision but the only one for me having Peace of mind and being able to live again is life changing. Matt got me through it all and was able to negotiate with the courts and 722 redemption to get the job done! If you need an excellent attorney call Matthew Foley he will get the job done!

I have utmost regard Matt takes care of things. Professionaly and Persoable. He and his staff are some of the most diligent and responsible. I would be remiss if I did not say Matt and his team are of a natural integrity in looking after your case. The humane and personable quality is unmatched.

What a wonderful law firm
I retained Matt and worked with him and his staff to proceed through a very stressful financial issue. After meeting with Matt we decided Chapter 7 was my best option. The process was seamless and I had all the confidence in Matt and staff. They are very professional, knowledgable and caring on a personal level. I would recommend Matt to all considering bankruptcy.

Matt Foley is a Business Banckruptcy Attorney Who is Great to Work With!
Anyone in business has consulted and/or worked with their fair share of attorneys. Most of the time you’ll be bombarded with law jargon and technicalities, that leave you feeling overwhelmed. Not so with Mr. Foley! In one consultation he offered straight forward, no nonsense legal advice, and is clearly an expert in business banckruptcy. Beyond law and legal matters, he is a true professional that understands customer service which made our meeting easy and comfortable. #highlyrecommended

Can you belive this?
There was only one reason that I didn't hire Matt Foley, that being he talked me out of it! His honesty is off the chart, not to mention his personal ways. After going over my debt of 18k personal and medical he said it was a very easy chapter 7. There was no need for me to pay his fee of $500 plus $335 filing fee when he was convinced after talking with me that I should do it MYSELF. he expounded there was no way i could "screw it up". He answered everything I asked and told me to call his office if I needed any help. If you can believe this he even walked me not only to the door but all the way to the elevator. After going online I would say he is one of the top three lawyers for bankruptcy. He should be the only ONE in my book.

Excellent
Mr. Foley handled my chapter 7. After my first meeting with him I instantly felt better about the whole thing. I was stressed about my finances and felt guilty for even considering a bankruptcy. I felt like a total failure. Mr. Foley was able to help me see that it was the right business decision and was also able to help me by pointing me to resources for a redemption loan on my vehicle. If you are considering a bankruptcy attorney, I would recommend you consult with Mr. Foley.

Excellent choice for bankruptcy
Matt helped get us a chapter 7 bankruptcy in a quick and professional manner. He explained the process step by step and allowed us from feeling overwhelmed to relieved. He stopped the garnishments from continuing and I even got my garnishment checks back. if I ever needed more help in the future, I would go back to him and recommend him to anyone that needs help with debt.

Very helpful even though not client (yet)
Matthew represented us at a Trustee meeting when our Phoenix attorney could not be present. He was knowledgeable and helpful. In addition, when my existing attorney became "disengaged", we contacted Matt and he spent a lot of time helping us understand some issues we were having. He was supportive, helpful, and gave excellent advice even though we were not his clients. I highly recommend him and he will be my first call for any future legal issues.

A saving grace!
I was literally days away from having my paychecks garnished. Not knowing what to do anymore, I decided to look for an attorney and researched all around Tucson. I came across reviews of Matt's firm on multiple sites and saw he was the highest rated and most reviewed. I decided to go in for my consultation and I couldn't hire him quick enough. Halee was awesome in helping me as well. I submitted all of my paperwork in less than 24 hours and 3 days later, I filed. I was so sick to my stomach in the stress of the debts I had. I was quickly releived. Matt made me feel comfortable and told me just to relax. I think we are all scared of the unknown and what lies behind Bankruptcy. But I cannot speak highly enough of the positive experience I had with Matt and his team. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Caught in a bind
I was in a real bind and not knowing the law, I contacted the best reviewed bankruptcy lawyer in town. After the consultation I left feeling better about my situation with a much better understanding of the law. The man knows his stuff and is very knowledgeable. I hired him and he did an amazing job. I literally did nothing but answer questions in an honest manor. The staff is a collection of incredible people, who are kind and very nice and understanding towards your situation. Thank you so so much for everything and would recommend the heck out of this gentlemen. Awesome experience.

Matt is fearless and unflappable....
Finding Matthew Foley and his team was like finding cool, clear water in the desert. After wading through several overworked, confused huckster attorneys in the bankruptcy area; finding Matt was like finding an angel. He was not put off by complexities in our case and he was always a calming, soothing commander in the midst of a difficult situation. He was a great strategist and his professionalism was amazing. He was incredibly patient to explain and reassure us of the best course of action. I have been exposed to many attorneys in my life but none have ever impressed me the way Matt Foley has. Even his staff, Halee, Alysha and Austin maintain extraordinary standards of professionalism while always supporting Matt in his mission: to serve and reassure the fiscally challenged throngs that enter through Matt's door hoping for knowledge and assistance. I would give Matthew Foley the highest possible recommendation as the best Bankruptcy Attorney in Arizona. Five Stars are not enough to capture what he does for the people of Tucson, Arizona. I would also recommend him for any position that requires competence, calm professionalism and uncanny skills, knowledge and competency. Matt is fearless and unflappable. Thanks again, Matt!
