Consulting with Ellen Cheney was the first step in regaining control of my financial future, after an untimely divorce, my mortgage crisis, and other related hardships caused me to become so indebted, I could not see how I would ever climb out of my financial insolvency. She explained how the law works to protect citizens and gave me clear steps to take, to resolve my financial problems and move forward with my life. I thought I would lose my home, but with her excellent advice, I am able to stay in the home where I raised my family. Although I am only half way through my Chapter 13 bankrupcy, already my credit scores are immensely improved. Thank you, Ellen!

Ellen Cheney is the best in the business! Not only is she detailed and thorough but compassionate and trustworthy! This is a tough experience but Ellen and staff always brought respect and kindness. She is an exceptional attorney and expert in her field. We previously used another lawyer and was a nightmare, so we were fortunate to find Ellen! We are so grateful to Ellen!

We got ourselves in financial trouble due to unforeseen circumstances and I didn’t see a way out until I contacted Ellen Cheney at "Mansfield Cheney,PC".
I explained my situation to Ellen and she suggested we meet and further discuss a possible Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing.
I meet with Ellen. She was very personable. I immediately felt comfortable telling her my financial situation. We agreed, a Chapter 7 was the best option for us.
We meet with her a second time and retained her and she got all of our paper work ready for us to sign. She advised us she would file our case that day.
I never had any issues. It was as EASY as Ellen said it would be!
Our Chapter 7 was discharged in the time table Ellen told me it would be.
I found Ellen charming, professional and caring. I feel her fee was not only reasonable, but some of the best money I’ve ever spent.
We are now free of debt and I am already working on building my credit back up.
Ellen, you were a God Send and I can’t thank you enough.
I encourage anyone considering filing Bankruptcy to call Ellen today. Your life will become so much easier.

I am an attorney and have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Ellen Cheney and to refer my clients to her that require a top notch attorney in the specialized field of Bankruptcy. Ellen is extremely pro-active, responsive to her clients needs, personable and easy to approach and work with. Above all, she is a legal expert in the complicated field of Bankruptcy. I trust she will thoughtfully and more than competently represent any client that I may refer to her. When one of my clients is in need of a Bankruptcy attorney, I always refer them the Ellen.

Ellen is a fantastic attorney. As a fellow attorney I have worked on cases collaboratively with Ellen, on cases where we each represented opposing parties, and I have witnessed her in court. Ellen is very skilled, well-informed, and committed to her clients' best-interests. I respect Ellen's work and recommend her highly.
