This attorney and her team were fabulous, professional and resolved my bankruptcy with no issues arising. I would recommend that anyone contact this attorney if you are considering filing a bankruptcy.

I have known Augusta for a few years now as a fellow attorney and I can truly attest to her professionalism, research, and analytical skills. She goes the extra mile to do everything well and represent her clients well. I would hire her for any bankruptcy or business matters. In fact, she has reviewed a business agreement for me in the past, and I found her to be very thorough.

I depended on Augusta for her legal advise and direction
Augusta provided an excellent plan on bankruptcy and debt reduction. She helped us save our house with no tax consequences. Augusta still continues to advise us as we finalize our situation.

Mr
We hired her as my wife's lawyer for bankruptcy. She constantly updated us on the status of the case. She explained well the legalities, pros and cons of filling bankruptcy. Her professionalism is over of what we expect from a lawyer.

Augusta brings humanity and dignity to stressful situations
I contacted Augusta I speak about some financial issues I was having and to learn what options I had. She was caring, non judgemental, and comforting to let me know all my options.

Knowledgeable
She was able to highlight the fine prints and innuendos embedded in the contract by the other party. You need a attorney like that to navigate complex contracts and agreements

A fighter for you
As my attorney I found Augusta Massey to be trustworthy and have a lot of integrity. She gives you honest, intelligent advice and counsel, and follows through on everything she says. If Attorney Massey says she will do something, you can trust that she will. Attorney Massey is extremely gifted, detail-oriented, and diligent. Her attention to detail is why she wins cases. If she tells you (as a client) to do something, it may be difficult to do, but she's asking you to do it to help your case. Attorney Massey is an expert in her field and is very professional; yet remains sensitive to the needs of her clients. I would not have survived my dilemma without her. She always has your best interests at heart. Her experience and expertise are exceptional she is personable and knowledgeable. I recommend her with the highest enthusiasm and without reservation. She is a fighter and will fight for you!

I would like to say Augusta helped me secure my affairs if anything were to ever happen to me. She did not push or force me to do anything, but simply laid down the information with a thorough explanation of the cause and effects of each decision. I felt the process was smooth and made very convenient for me.
