Debt relief
I was referred to Miguel Valente by co-worker. He handled her Bankruptcy and was happy with his service. I called Miguel and had the opportunity to consult with him. He explained the process, encouraged me to shop around and gave me fees in writing. He promised fees would not increase, the fee was from start to finish. I had many questions, he assured me the law protected me and was I had rights. He protected my home, car and salary. I am satisfied with outcome of my case. I will recommend to others.

My advisor answered my most pressing questions and gave me concise, easy-to-understand advice on "next steps." I concluded our discussion with a clear idea of what my options are and the best course of action to initiate at this time. It was well worth the consultation fee.
