So much gratitude for Harold
Without my knowledge, my previously hired attorney left the state of Nevada and all his clients without representation (myself included). Harold assumed representation of my bankruptcy matter. He saw my matter through to successful completion. He was responsive to my inquiries, professional and kind. Thank you Harold for everything!!!

Best decision I made
I had been struggling with financial disaster for years. I had consulted a few lawyers in that time but they made the process seem to complicated. Harold took on my case and made it very easy on my part! He never made me feel like I was lesser of a person because of my situation. I would recommend him to anyone especially procrastinators like me!

Excellent service, the best out there!
Mr. Comanse was not the fist lawyer I interviewed for help with my overwhelming debt. But he was the one I picked due to his personable nature, great memory of the specifics in my case, and his attention to detail. I was scared and embarrassed and felt there was no solution to my financial mess, but Harold Comanse put me at ease and with his affordable price. I am now able to finally move forward with my life. His office was clean and professional and I didn't feel like I had to take care of stuff myself. He even helped me with all the credit counseling with giving me direct access links to online counseling and step by step instructions. Mr. Comanse, I can't thank you enough. Forever grateful, Keia

Professional and understanding
My wife and I met with Harold and his office staff around November of last year with what seemed like a complicated case. However, Harold and his staff were understanding, and made us feel much better about our situation. In addition, he made the whole process easy and quick, we would very much recommend his services to anyone!

Professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and understanding….Harold C. Comanse has the perfect combination of all.
From beginning to end, Harold never lost sight of how uncomfortable this whole situation was for us. He is compassionate and understood that nobody wants to go through this, but if there is no other option, he will be right there with you every step of the way. He thoroughly explained the entire process and no matter how many questions I had, he continued to answer them without hesitation until I understood. This is not just some attorney who tells you what you want to hear and then disappears, Harold truly cares and it shows. Thank you for understanding what people need when they get themselves in to an unfortunate situation.

Recommended by a friend mine who is also an Attorney
Bankruptcy is a difficult time for people. It can be stressful and very emotional for some, especially if you need to know things that you are entirely unaware of. Mr. Comanse was able to walk me through the process in a personable and expert manner. At no point did I feel confused or alone, instead I felt that I had the power in my corner. If you need an expert, you can do no better than to start here.

The most Kind and Compassionate Man
I had heard from a co-worker that they were filing bankruptcy and I asked if it was scary or hard to do. She said , no. I asked for his name and said I should go see him. When I got there he and his co-workers were very nice and made me feel very comfortable. When I got to his office, he is very personable. He let's you know right up front the cost and any other questions that you might have. I found out before I went to court with him that my fiance' had a terminal disease and I let him know that I was very upset. He assured me that he would be with me during the whole thing, which took about a total of 3-5 minutes and it was done. I would definitely tell anyone that needs a bankruptcy lawyer that he is your man!

Helpful and very understanding
My wife and I met Harold after talking with a few other attorneys and Harold was easy to talk with and made us feel comfortable about a really hard decision. Harold understands that people make mistakes and I believe he really cares wants to help people move on as easily as possible with all the answers you need to make and informed decision. His knowledge of the process is vast and always was quick to answer all questions we had. I liked that most communications and paper work could be done using emails which saved us time and and energy running back and forth. I will recommend Harold to anyone facing this kind of financial situation.

Bankruptsy with a Heart
I went to Mr. Comanse just over five years ago for bankruptsy. He helped me get ALL of my debts in order and made it easy to file. In the five years I was paying my debts I could call Harold Comanse at any time to ask questions about my case. At a time in your life when your only option is to file for B.K I found that Mr. Comanse was always there to help me. This Lawyer is so very professional and such a kind man I would HIGHLY recommend this Top Notch Lawyer to help with any legal matters. I am now done with my B.K and it was truly a pleasure to have Mr.Comanse on my side. In a crazy way I will miss my contact with him, he truly has a Heart!

Don't let fear stop you from meeting with the Right bankruptcy attorney
After three consultations with other bankruptcy firms, two in Southern Nevada and one locally here in Reno and still filled with fear and anxiety,I found Harold Comanse. I went from one firm to the next over three years and tapped out my 401k and savings at the advice of the mortgage company.I finally found peace of mind during the initial consultation with Mr. Comanse. He explained our options in a very clear respectful way. He helped determine what happened and the best way to move forward.He accepted a payment plan and he and his office assisted all the way through our Chapter 13. We were able to keep our remaining retirement savings, we were able to receive and keep our IRS refunds during the payback period and keep our automobiles and personal and business possessions.You will not find a better attorney than Harold Comanse. My only regret is that I didn't find him sooner. We completed our Chapter 13 with success and are months away from being able to qualify for a new home. If your scared about your situation and not sure which way to turn.Call my attorney Harold Comanse .

Harold Comanse was extremely knowledgable and helpful!
Mr. Comanse walked us through our business and personal case step by step when we were facing one of the hardest times of our lives. Harold made the difficult time bearable with his expertise and professionalism! He still answers our questions (we are on our feet and doing great) even though our case was handled many months ago. Hands down he is the best choice for an attorney in your time of need.

God Bless Mr. Comanse
I hope everyone reading this will realize that this is a "real" letter of appreciation to Mr. Comanse, who saved my self-respect and marriage. During the economic downturn, like many others I was hit hard. I was laid off my job and became buried in payments. The stress it caused on my marriage was incredible and devastating. Bankruptcy was our only hope, only I didn't want to wipe out my debts, I wanted to re-pay them, so that to the best of my ability no one suffered. I was referred to Mr. Comanse by a family friend who spoke very highly of him. Worth noting was that friend is also an attorney. From the moment I first met Mr. Comanse I knew that "he had my back". I knew that I was a priority to him, that he would stand by me through any challenge, any downturn. I can only say that he lived up to and surpassed every expectation I had. He truly cared about me and always had the time to talk to me, to reassure and support me. Because of Mr. Comanse I successfully completed the Chapter 13 program and I'm now on the road to recovery. He is exactly what I was looking for. I seriously doubt that I could have ever found an attorney who cared more about me as a person. God Bless you Mr. Comanse and thank you so much for all you did. I am a better man because I know you.

Harold is a true professional.
Before I met with Harold I had met with at least 5 other bankruptcy attorneys. We had a complex chapter 13 case and he was the only attorney who understood the importance of keeping certain assets and was willing to go the extra mile to help us achieve our goals. We had some events happen that forced us to convert our case to a chapter 7. Harold was always professional and helped us with the conversion. He has always been available when we needed to reach him and his assistant Coleen has always been very helpful. We would highly recommend Commanse Law to anyone.
