If you are considering filing bankruptcy, please do yourself a favor and go see Tom Miles. First and foremost, he is extremely knowledgable in all current bankruptcy law. This went a long way to put my mind at ease. Tom is compassionate, kind, helpful and never, in any way did he try to pressure me to do anything.
He will take the time to walk you through the entire process, patiently explaining the steps.
Now- Gere, who handles all the day-to-day, in's and outs of your paperwork, is a ROCKSTAR. It literally felt as though a friend was guiding me through this process, making it almost... enjoyable. She is sharp as a tack, sweet, funny and does everything within her power to get you (as easily as possible) through the mounds of paperwork required. Please LISTEN to her, and follow her interactions. It WILL make your life less complicated! Tom and Gere have enormous hearts for helping people. This is their passion and their gift. I did not feel an ounce of judgement, only empathy and caring.
I highly recommend this little practice in El Cajon. They made what was obviously a difficult time for me much better than I could have hoped for.

5 years ago, we were experiencing a great deal of financial hardship. We needed to do something fast. I found Tom through the Internet and set up our first appointment. I left that appointment feeling so blessed to have found such an amazing attorney. Not only has he had many years experience in BK law but he is so helpful, non-judgemental and he really wants what is best for his clients! This is rare in today's day and age, believe me! Don't get drawn into the big firms who have a revolving door, go to Tom. He will treat you with the respect you deserve.

I am so glad I found Mr. Miles, I first talked to Gere who was very helpful she walked me through every bit of the process and set my mind at ease that everything was going to be OK. They are so down to earth and very concerned about making sure you understand everything every step of the way. They were just what I needed during a very stressful time...Thank You Tom and Gere!!!
