He did a good job on my case.
He was very up front, patient, and explained the process thoroughly. When we went to the hearing everything went super smooth and you could tell he was very experienced with the process. I couldn't of asked for more. I'd recommend him and his firm.

Best Bankruptcy Lawyer in town --- I would know, because I swear I met with all of them!
I shopped around town and met with ALOT of lawyers, however Ahren Tiller was hands down the most quick, smart, and knowledgeable lawyer I met with. He helped me through an extremely stressful and tough time. If you have a complicated bankruptcy and need straightforward answers, call his offer asap.

Great Lawyer - Great Team.
I recieved an e-mail to review Ahren on this site. I did not hesitate to give him a great review. He is a great lawyer! He saved my home, got rid of my second mortgage, and really saved me financially. My 2nd mortgage lender USE Credit Union really fought hard against me stripping my 2nd mortgage, however Ahren went to court and we had a trial that he did extremly well on and won. I would definately recommend him.
