I have been fighting with the IRS for over 10 years, in regard to 3 Federal tax liens totaling over $450,000 from tax years, 1997,1998 & 2004. Before meeting Dorothy, I spent over $10,000 in legal fees with two tax attorneys, who were not able to get anything done. I also spent years trying to work with the IRS myself and always with the same results...no deal.
Needless to say, I had been frustrated and scared by my Government.
I was referred to Dorothy Bunce by a very good friend this past July and I am so thrilled and happy to say that Dorothy was able to use her legal expertise to wipe out over 99% of that debt and all I had to pay was $920.
Thanks to Dorothy, I have a new lease on life and will highly recommend her to anybody else that finds themselves in trouble.

Dorothy is an expert in bankruptcy. After the housing and economy collapse I had a lot of debt and my house was worth half of what I owed. Dorothy was able to eliminate my second mortgage and I was able to keep my house. If you need an expert call Dorothy. Thank you so much!

Atty Bunce has been my lawyer and up to present who provide us an excellent services for us without any doubt. As a lawyer, she is a very talented person that knows about the laws and procedures much in general. I recommend her services to anyone who need her expertise and support under such unexpected circumstances as far as legal matters concerned.

Dorothy is a God Send! Needless to say, filing bankruptcy was a very difficult time in my life. Dorothy's an expert in this area, very knowledgeable. Immediately after retaining her services my problems began to subside. Not only did she help me during this traumatic period, but she gave me peace of mind and a fresh start. I highly recommend Attorney Bunce!!

In the late 1990's I needed a divorce lawyer and the legal plan that I belonged too refered me to Dorothy Bunce. She took care of my divorce in every way that I asked her to. Years later I needed a Bankruptcy Attorney and as I was looking through the yellow pages I noticed Dorothys name. I called her and was glad she remembered me. I felt quite comfortable as she guided me through the whole process(I would not reccomend you try this without an Attorney of your choice). During the process of meeting with the trustee a question was asked of me and for some reason I was drawing a blank and I just sat there, Dorothy snapped me out of it with a suggestion and then I was able to answer the question. I was so grateful that she was there for me.

After getting myself in deep financial trouble and enduring countless sleepless nights, I finally threw in the towel and decided bankruptcy was probably my only workable option. First I purchased a thick book about how to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy without an attorney. I read it cover to cover twice. Then I searched online to see what others have experienced. Through reading on this website and many others, I concluded that going it alone is rarely a good idea. So being a frugal guy at heart plus having very limited funds available, I next researched the concept of hiring someone at a deeply discounted rate. Again, after hours of reading other people's experiences, I concluded that one generally gets what one pays for when seeking legal help. Please read for yourself some of the horror stories posted online by people who hired the cheapest price law firm.
Due to the excellent reviews I found for Dorothy Bunce, I decided to call for the free consultation. After fully explaining my financial nightmare, she agreed that Chapter 7 bankruptcy was the best option for me. Much to my surprise, there were no high pressure sales pitches or pressure to sign immediately. I was most impressed with the way Ms. Bunce conducts herself and, after a few more days of fretting, I had confidence that retaining her would be a good decision. She has handled thousands of bankruptcies in her 30+ years experience.
I am now so relieved that my choice was the correct one. Ms. Bunce did a stellar job throughout the whole process and I continue to be impressed with her. I am grateful for her help. I am glad to say that everything went smoothly and I now have my discharge. Can't argue with success!

I chose Dorothy because of her knowledge in her field and she gave me excellent advise. Dorothy always followed up with me and returned my calls and emails very fast. Dorothy gives a more personal service and she is an expert in lien stripping. I am very pleased with her and her staff and I would highly recommend her.

I had never had money issues in my life, but when I did, I contacted her and she got me through a difficult, scary time. She knows what she's doing and will walk you through every step of the way and help you through the process. Her fees were excellent as well. I started with Ch. 13 and transferred to a Ch. 7 when this economy grabbed a hold of my husband's job. I have now been successfully discharged and can get on with my life and start to repair my credit. I would highly recommend her as your attorney.

So many GREAT things to say about Dorothy! I would highly recommend her to anyone that is in an unfortunate bankruptcy, as her involvement made mine, a truly seamless process. I did consult with several other attorneys before I chose Dorothy and I left completely confused and also had ALOT of unanswered questions. Dorothy was always there, very patient in her answers and explanations and incredibly thorough. I would have to say she's the best in Las Vegas at what she does and her track record proves it!

I endorse this lawyer. Las Vegas may seem like a long way from my home state of Minnesota, but bankruptcy is a creature of federal law and is quite similar from state to state. Both Ms. Bunce and I are prolific writers of answers on the AVVO legal questions forum. When I answer a question, more than likely she has already answered before I did. I read her answers carefully, and often learn something of value. She is very informed, very experienced and very wise.
