When it comes to medical and legal issues, experience counts. I arrived at my 341 creditors meeting very early and saw nearly a dozen meetings with the court trustee. During nearly every one the trustee chastised the bankruptcy filer’s attorney for errors or omissions. When Ms. Bunce and I walked up to the table for my meeting, the trustee knows that Ms. Bunce is the most experienced, most knowledgeable, most professional attorney he would be dealing with all day. My meeting was short, fast, and painless. I firmly believe it was because of Ms. Bunce’s known competency and history. Experience counts! I wanted an attorney that knows and has seen everything. Based on my research the choice was obvious and I am so glad that I had Ms. Bunce representing me during this difficult time.

I am very happy today finally I got discharge letter , credit card debts gone, during past 5 months, don't know how many times I looked this name " A fresh start", It touched my heart so much. really.
I have to say if I didn't have Dorothy to be my attorney , I wouldn't have today.
I owe $60,000 credit card debt ,I was going to borrow money to do the debt reduction, it's going to cost me at least $ 25,000 and may take over a year . The reason I find Attorney Dorothy because she only charges 10% of the reduced amount not like other attorneys charge the whole debt amount's 10% .
When I met Dorothy , She suggested me to do chapter 7 bankruptcy , She herself gave up making $4000 , would rather making $ 1400 and do the complicated bankruptcy paperwork , just because she thinks to borrow new debt to pay the old debt is bad action , She said having a fresh star of my life is better for me , and she has confidence to make it happen.
Other people told me if I have a job income is not low enough , it's gonna fail . But Dorothy told me it's wrong .
We start on May, during those months , preparing all kinds of documents, fill forms, we have been sent each other 109 emails ! and I went to her office 6 times, what a work......
I read lot of people's experience online, some attorney offer lower price get people in, later charge more and more, but not Dorothy , She could asked me to pay more, She spent so much time and energy on my case, specially because of my ignorant , didn't know the right way to calculate income , her had to spend more time re-calculate and explain to me.....
My case is complicated , because I have stock account, small business, such a mess, over 200 pages of document present, when trustee told me they need more bank documents, I felt I was collapsed.....But Dorothy was calm and at the first time guide me to prepared everything we need.
Dorothy is the most capable attorney I have ever met, and She is the nice, kind, confidence, hopeful, I asked her to treat her for dinner, she didn't want , I want to give her some gift, she said she didn't need anything , Dorothy is like a angel, I can see her heart , she is not for making money, she is there for helping people.
I am here giving all my best blessings and wishes to Dorothy, You have a wonderful weekend..........
( Sorry my English is not so good . )

Dorothy Bunce provide excellent guidance during the Chapter 7 process. She was able to put me at ease and all went well. I would recommend Dorothy to anyone who is in need of legal services. She treated me as a friend and I am happy with the caring support she provided. Barbara.

Part of the reason we dug ourselves so deep into our hole was that we were so afraid of all the unknowns of bankruptcy. We were ashamed, scared, and feeling pretty helpless. As it became more and more evident we were out of options we tried searching online to find a good lawyer at a reasonable price. We had spent quite some time looking and we had Dorothy highlighted from the start. As we searched our narrowing list of Lawyers we found some cheaper, and some from large firms. We just kept on running across Dorothy and her awesome reviews. We finally reached out to her and set up our first meeting. From that initial moment, all the way until today we are certain that was the best choice we could have made. Dorthy made things simple. Dorothy did not judge us. Dorothy kept us up to date and even reminded us when we had important papers due. For the intimidating meeting with the trustee, Dorothy prepped us, was there with us in the courtroom so we felt at ease the whole time. Bankruptcy was not a simple choice in any way. There are many mountains of paperwork, looming due dates, ever changing court schedules, but Dorothy guided us through it all and set us back on our feet. Thank you for all you have done for our family Dorothy!

Dorothy had all the answers to my questions. We spent twice as much times as scheduled to be sure I was clear about my options. She is very down to earth and I believe genuinely concerned for her clients.

Thank God I found you! I do not know how or why a layperson such as myself would deem they possess the skills AND knowledge to file for bankruptcy on their own…it’s too complicated. Even with you guiding and advising me, it’s overwhelming!

Dorothy Bunce at a fresh start was pleasantly supportive and insightful prior to and during the process of our filing. My wife and I have never filed for financial hardship prior to this and we were very apprehensive and anxious about the entire process. She reassured us that if we fully disclose or information and remain vigilant and truthful the process would be relatively smooth. She delivered on her promise, represented us respectfully at a fairly in the presence of the Trustee at fair fee. Thank you again for your work with us and now we can truly have a fresh start.

After enduring 7 years of collection letters, phone calls, and a couple of lawsuits by creditors related to my former business, I finally decided to see if a lawyer could help put my past business failure in the past. I initially chose Dorthy Bunce based on the positive reviews that I found online. After our initial consultation I new Dorthy was the right person to help me navigate through chapter 7 bankruptcy. Dorthy guided me through all of the steps in the process with professionalism and compassion. She responded to my questions in a timely manor (Even if they were irrelevant to the case) and completed the process without any extra or hidden costs. Bankruptcy may not be for everyone, but you should consider Dorthy for every bankruptcy.

Dorothy was an excellent attorney. My father and I was very worried about the case and had many questions and concerns. I would consider her an expert in bankruptcy and made the process for us for easy. She is extremely helpful and friendly, I wouldn't consider anyone else but her!

When making one of the toughest decisions in my life to file bankruptcy I found myself wondering how do I make a decision on who to hire. Do I go with the flashy television ads and take a chance that I picked the right one, do I ask friends I might know who they used or do I do some research on where to find the right attorney? I decided on the later. In my research I found one attorney that by far stood out in the amount of referrals she had. In my line of work referrals are hard to come by so I know what it takes to get even a happy customer to take the time to same something nice about you. Dorothy's list of referrals was the reason I took a chance that she would be the person I needed to talk to. I will be honest and tell you that I was a little put off by her office at first, but it was not her office I was interested in it was her expertise. Dorothy took the time to put my wife and I at ease about the process we were about to go through. She took the time to explain the different processes and why what she did may or may not work for us. She also pulled no punches in letting us know we created the problem and there are consequences for where we were at financially. We decided to hire Dorothy as our attorney and found her to be every bit of what she said she would be for us. The process flowed exactly as she explained, we followed all her instructions and found the whole thing to be about as painless as a bankruptcy could be.
I highly recommend Dorothy G Bunce at A Fresh Start for your Chapter 7 bankruptcy needs. Take the time to meet her and find out that she knows how to help you navigate a very difficult financial situation.
