Worth every penny
I was fully embarrassed to have to file bankruptcy but Linda Blonsley and her staff made me feel comfortable and they were very supportive. Every issue & potential outcome was explained in detail and I never felt I couldn't call or email for even the smallest question. She or her staff responded quickly as well. I was initially shocked at the expense of filing, but in the long run they earned every penny. I am very thankful that such a stressful situation was handled so well.
