She took the time to make sure that I had everything I needed and always made herself available for any further questions. She provided a great service and made my process very easy!

Hard working lawyer
Being in my late 60's I struggled with filing for bankruptcy but came to the conclusion that I really could not keep up with my monthly bills. I read many reviews before meeting with Kateryna. One phone conversation and I knew I had the right lawyer. I had many questions along the way and every phone call was returned promptly, and she took her time and answered all my questions. When my court date came I felt confident that we had dotted all our "i"s and crossed all of our "t"s. Due to Kateryna's hard and complete work, I was granted a full discharge. I highly recommend Kateryna! You will not be disappointed.

Nice work done , Kateryna
I was full of anxiety with my bankruptcy situation until I was introduced to Kateryna. On my very first interaction with Kateryna she educated me on the process and she was able to reduce my level of anxiety considerably. She helped me through the whole process of bankruptcy and made it much easier for me to complete the process. I thank Kateryna for making my life much better and much bearable as I went through the process. I highly recommend Kateryna to anyone who is in emotional disturbance with the bankruptcy process, you will love her and she will make things look much better and easier to handle.

My experience with attorney Kateryna Bilenka
The first step I had to take to learn about bankruptcy was to "make the call." I called 9 bankruptcy firms and left voicemails with each of them. Out of those 9 calls, only two attorneys returned my call. The first attorney was aggressive and a bit overwhelming for me which instantly created an unforeseeable connection. The second attorney was Kateryna Bilenka. Mrs. Bilenka explained everything thoroughly and in a very comprehensible manner, which was imperative to me. This is when I knew she was the one. She worked as quickly as I did and I am certain she adjusts her pace to meet her clients pace. Along with her sincerity and personable traits, she was extremely helpful and made every step as easy as possible for me. I will continue to highly recommend Kateryna Bilenka as she was excellent in every facet across the board and I mean that wholeheartedly. Her flawless execution resulted in my bankruptcy being a perfect success! Thank you, Kateryna.
