The best
It Is a scary thing going to a hearing for a bankruptcy, but the offices or Borowitz and Clark made the entire process easy and very comfortable. They know exactly what they are doing. I had the pleasure of working with both Clark’s. Office staff is phenomenal. I am going to recommend to everyone I know that they are the ones to get it done. Thanks again!

Ms. Heather J. Canning
She was very polite and reassuring that everything will be okay. She broke down the entire process from when hired and they are with you until the end. She was able to answer all my questions and listened intently to my situation. Explained the differences between ch.7 and ch.13 bankruptcies. Felt a sense of relief after walking out and that everything will be okay.

Facing Bankrupacy made easier
A hard view of my circumstances forced me to realize that I needed to declare bankrupacy. I was afraid and nervous. I looked for an attorney in my area and read about Erik Clark; I went for an initial consultation. I was impressed, gained confidence, received direction and decided to go forward using the services of Erik Clark. The experience was quite involved, but I received well organized and easy to follow directions. I felt that I had access to expert help and advise as I need it. I worked through the process and eventually went for my court appearance. It went smoothly as I felt well prepared and well represented.

settlements
Erik clark actually handle three matters for me. Because of he did such a great job, and was able to settle two of the cases I did not have to follow through on the third matter which would have been bankruptcy, I was very happy with the out come of both settlements. he is as far as Im concerned an outstanding Attorney. I would recommend him and will recommend him to anyone who needs a good attorney.
