I wanted to compliment Lou Esbin for a wonderful Job he does. He is a pleasure to work with and a true professional. I am so glad that I was introduced to him and will recommend him whenever the opportunity arises.

Mr. Esbin took a stressful situation and making it as smooth as possible. He simply looked at what needed to be done and took care of it. Our chapter 13 was more complicated than most, but he handled everything and throughout the process left us feeling confident that they were on top of things. He never made you feel like you were alone, never feeling like it is your entire fault and never ever feeling ashamed.
Mr. Esbin was always available for your stupid questions, to intelligent questions. Nothing was too small or big. Our calls were answered very promptly or by email. The office staff was all sympathetic, profession, friendly, throughout and highly efficient. They worked very hard.
Mr. Esbin is very knowledge of the State Law/Bankruptcy Law and knows his litigation well. He worked very hard and did a fabulous job for us.
A very important factor is the fee. Mr. Esbin is up front with the fee, and never overcharges with unnecessary fees, or any hidden fees. This is very important.
Mr. Esbin truly works hard for you. Mr. Esbin is not like any other attorney that only cares about your money. He answered all our questions in detail, and gave us advice how to situate our problems.
Bankruptcy is nothing anyone wants to go through, but now we feel that we have a new start and can move past our mistakes. We really owe our financial future to Mr. Esbin.
I would recommend Mr. Lou Esbin to anyway with no hesitation.
