Outstanding law firm
We had a great experience with the Moran Law Group. They are experts in their field and provided us with great education, support, and all the tools required to settle our case. They told us what we needed to do and when we needed to do it. They literally took care of everything from top to bottom in the 5 years we had to go through this. We had a lot of questions throughout the process and they always answered us in a timely manner. It's very challenging to have to go through something like a bankruptcy. We couldn't have imagined using any other firm. We were very grateful for their support and experience. We really felt like we had a team behind us. We are very grateful that we had them to represent us!!

Once I got past the consulting fee and met with Cathy Moran, I felt confident - and honestly hopeful - that she would take care of my case, having a favorable result. She set expectations about my case at our first meeting, in the end she and her team over delivered. I am very pleased with the result and my Chapter 13 payment schedule.
Cathy is a straight-shooter - she can be personable - and if she senses time is being wasted, you will know it. If you retain her services, she and her team will let you know what documents and information is needed from you. Don't miss these deadlines. Most of the time that I spent was near the beginning, where the initial work consumed a few hours of time. Make it a top priority and don't procrastinate. After all, it is your financial future.
As for communication, Cathy's office is good in keeping you in the loop on the next milestone in your timeline. If you have questions, be concise, specific and send via email; you will receive a quality response that is also concise.
Cathy's team of another lawyer and paralegals have talents in different areas, each taking care of a different aspect in my case. I am very grateful to all of them, they allowed me to live within my income and have a life with my family. After receiving the judge's confirmation of my plan, I feel like I have been given another chance, and I know where I'm at financially.
I later found out that Cathy is well known and respected among other bankruptcy attorneys in the Bay Area. She is also known to have set precedence in court, fighting for the rights of bankruptcy filers like me. She is very experienced in bankruptcy law. Although I was not surprised to learn these details after knowing Cathy, I was reminded that I was very fortunate to have crossed paths with her and to have retained her services.

It is difficult to face that you need to go into bankruptcy. I retained Attorney Cathy Moran. She was very professional and non-judgemental about my situation -- I was already beating up myself. She is very professional and I felt very confident in her knowledge of bankruptcy law and submission requirements. She was very responsive anytime I had a question. I really appreciated that she would respond quickly to my questions. In addition, her office staff was equally responsive regarding general questions or responding to my occasional requests for copies of documents. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a bankruptcy attorney.

Cathy is a gem! She volunteers her time to provide the public with Bankruptcy in Brief, the most comprehensive, non technical resource in bankruptcy law online for over 15 years. http://www.bankruptcyinbrief.com/

I endorse this lawyer. She cares about the work she does and has a fantastic wealth of knowledge. She is generous with sharing her information to other lawyers and I would definitely seek her assistance if I were in the south bay.
