Deborah DeMack removed an obstacle in my path towards closing on a home. She resolved in roughly 24 hours an issue I could not resolve myself in 5 weeks. Professional, knowledgeable, could not recommend her more highly.

Working with Deborah in filing bankruptcy turned out to be a great experience despite the stressful circumstance. She was incredibly responsive, thorough, kind and non-judgmental, and worked incredibly hard to get me a positive outcome.
I had researched in advance, and had been impressed by her experience in consumer advocacy, so was very pleased she could take me as a client.
I would recommend her highly!

Deborah worked with me on my debt collection case. First, she accepted my case when other attorneys turned me down. She worked with me every step of the way. She was tireless even though the case dragged on for almost 3 years (through no fault of her own) She listened to my side and fought with me against what I saw as unjust practices. She is invested in her area of practice and was constantly researching and bringing in new ideas and was also open to ideas I had. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
