Quick and easy
I was very nervous about filing but Scott walked me through and made me feel at ease. He was quick and efficient. He promptly filed the documents in May and I’ve already had my hearing with the courts! Scott made everything so easy and communicated with me all the way through. I was recommended to him by a friend and I recommend him to you all

Thorough and Efficient
Was very weary about filing a bankruptcy. I went and spoke to Scott and he answered all of my questions (even if I thought they might seem redundant). I took many months to decide to finally go through with it and he was supportive and respectful of the time I needed to make a thorough decision. Once I decided to go forward with the filing, he was available and easy to contact. He explained the entire process and had it filed in a very timely manner. From start of meeting him to end of the process was a lot faster than anticipated.
