I had to hire a new bankruptcy attorney (because of a billing dispute with the previous firm) and I selected Leonard Watkins because his office is close to my home and his other favorable online reviews. I can't say enough about how positive the experience was him and his assistant Denise. Every question was answered quickly and replies to my e-mails were super fast.
Len guided me through the entire bankruptcy process and his dealings with the trustee were both professional and spot on. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and experienced attorney, Len is your man.

If one needs a attorney who is straightforward, knowledgeable and expedient then Mr Watkins should be your choice. Legal papers are filed and completed in a timely fashion, however, this means that the client must complete there necessary paperwork in the same manner.
As in choosing a physician, you want someone who has performed many
of the procedures not one or thirty percent but seventy to one-hundred
percent. Mr Watkins falls into the latter group.
Communication is another aspect that is of paramount concerns to those who are not in the legal profession and I was no exception. Mr Watkins and staff addressed all questions and concerns immediately and this made a stressful event very palatable.

Len is an extremely friendly, kind, and smart man. He helped me through the entire process, start to finish, and explained anything i had questions on in a fashion that was professional yet still had that personal touch. Some lawyers pawn most tasks off on to their assistants, but Len took the time to talk to me on the phone whenever i needed to speak to him, and he himself represented me in person instead of sending an assistant. I simply cannot rate Len high enough!
