Honest, direct, and to the point. An outstanding attorney! A+
I highly recommend attorney Anthony Vigil. He was very diligent, dependable, and honest and he made my chapter 7 bankruptcy a very smooth and painless process. He was always there to answer my questions, always kept me very informed, and he made sure that I had dotted every "I" and crossed every "t" to get the exact outcome that I was looking for. After 3 months my bankruptcy was discharged, and now I'm in the road to credit recovery! Thanks Anthony!

Best Attorney Around
I had to file for bankruptcy due to medical bills and mounting debt. Admittedly, I knew very little about the bankruptcy process, what to expect, and how to move forward. I was fortunate enough to have found Anthony Vigil through ARAG, a legal service that my work provided as a benefit. Anthony is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and helped me navigate through my bankruptcy case from start to finish. He always followed up with any inquiry I had promptly and was always looking out for me. I would highly recommend Anthony to anyone looking for an experienced, efficient, and trustworthy attorney. I am going to recommend him to anyone who is looking for excellent legal representation.
