Glad I called Nick
A friend of mine referred Nick so I called him. Nick and his team worked for me and with me in allowing me to make payments. I referred Wajda Law to my sister and they took immediate action in getting her case filed and saved her property. Thank you

If you want to file for Bankrupcy this is the place you want to go. Attorney Wadja Was always there to answer any questions you may have and he will explain the process which will ease our mind.I commend. I not only commend attorney Wadja but also his staff, who are informed, courteous and knowlegable.

Excellent
Nick recently handled my bankruptcy with precision. My situation was very complex as it involved years of unfiled tax returns, a divorce among Covid and my business going under. It was a very emotional time however, Nick's steady hand kept it all on track and although there were bumps along the way, ultimately my bankruptcy was discharged. I am grateful to Nick and his team of experts for allowing me a fresh start.

Professional
I found Nicholas on-line after doing a lot of research on bankruptcy. I was going through a tough time after a break up and after many conversations with Nick he said Chapter 13 was the best option for me since I had recently purchased a home and did not want to lose it. Nick was helpful and responsive as well as his assistant Lindsay. With filing, there are a lot of questions and they were both very helpful! I highly recommend the Wajda Group!

Detailed and professional
I was hurting and in a rocky situation with my finances. I could barely make ends meet and my credit card bills were out of control. I decided to look into bancruptcy as a possible solution.. i went to the legalzoom website to check on my options.. i called their number and after a few questions i was then informed that an attorney would contact me shortly. They referred me to wadja law group. Nick, from the moment we first talked were non judgemental and very understanding. He got me started with paperwork and after a few questions we were off and running for filing chapter 7. Nick was very understanding with my financially predictament that he offered a payment plan to fit my financial needs. He filed all my paperwork in a prompt manner and his communication with me were excellent! I had zero hiccups with nick and his associates. I am now debt free and back on the road to recovery.. thank you very much nick. You made this very stressful time exceptionally easy!

Fantastic Law Office
Was given the Wajda law group info from a friend who told me she had a great experience. Boy was she right. Nick and associates were fantastic. They reassured me as I was nervous about the process of filing bankruptcy. They responded to phone calls and emails almost right way. Nick and his team seemed to be on the job 24/7. I always knew what was going on and it was spelled out clearly each time. I’m grateful I chose them as this process was very smooth. I highly recommend them.

Great, dedicated Attorney
The issue with which I was dealing was stressful and what I thought would be complicated. After working with attorney Nick Wajda, all my fears subsided and my issue was resolved. I was able to contact Mr. Wajda at any time and always received a quick reply. i got to the point where I just "went with the flow" and whenever he contacted me, I did what he asked. I will absolutely hire him again if the need arises. He and his firm get results.

great service!!
I was very afraid of going through with this process but Wajda Law Group made my 1st time bankruptcy experience very quick and easy. Nicholas was there to answer all of my questions and phone calls. He made sure that he stayed in contact with me from start to finish. He offered different options of payment plans to help me with my bankruptcy process and I must say "it worked out for me very well". I only missed one day of work through the entire process and that was the court day. I give Wajda Law Group 2 thumbs up and I would definitely recommend this service to anyone who is considering bankruptcy.

Nick is the best attorney out there! I filed bankruptcy and just got discharged. He followed me through step by step and answered all my questions and concerns. He is reliable and the best thing is that he is always available. If you need an attorney you can trust Nick!

Chapter 7 BK
Filing a BK was new to me. Although I knew it was the best way to go, I was very uncomfortable and lacked confidence in myself. Quite a distance between us so I never met “Nick”. However, in speaking to him on the phone, the very first time, I was impressed. I relaxed and listened as he explained the process. Nick is thorough, answered my calls himself, and replied to my emails in less than an hour. I hired Nick and my confidence was renewed. I had no issues and my BK was filed and dismissed in a very short time. I wish him continued success and much happiness m
