Wonderful Lawyer
Thomas Amberg was professional, thorough and reassuring throughout the entire process. I was impressed by his composure and ability to navigate me through what I had assumed would be a confusing process, but ultimately was not. I give him the highest recommendation, you will likely not find anyone more competent or professional.

Awesome lawyer
Tom was awesome! I was putting off and dreading the whole process, but he was quick and always responded to any questions! Very helpful and non-judgmental. He tells you what he needs from you, and once you provide him with the documents, he has a quick turn-around time. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

I was dreading the bankruptcy process but Toms upbeat, non-judgmental, relaxed vibe and knowledge made the process seem effortless. It was so comforting to have Tom through the whole process, I don't know how people do it alone! What a relief to have a fresh start.

Tom is a Life Saver!!
Tom was referred to me by my mother and I am so glad she did. I was being garnished for a debt that was almost 10 years old. Tom got the garnishment stopped with in 2 pay periods and I will receive all of the garnished money back. He made the whole bankruptcy process smooth and understandable. I will be referring Tom to everyone I know. Thanks Tom!

The Best
I reached out to Mr. Amberg after a positive review from my sister in law. I was so stressed and overwhelmed with my debt. I called Mr. Amberg and scheduled a consultation after hearing all my options I felt confident Mr. Amberg would be the best fit for me. He always explained the process and was very thorough on what to expect and was always very flexible. The process took maybe two months if that and I feel a weight has been lifted. He truly is the best!!

Good job
His knowledge of the process made it less challenging. He made sure I had everything in order, and kept in constant communication. Once we went to court, after listening to the other cases, I realized he was very thorough and I was happy I chose him

My Bankruptcy journey
Bankruptcy can be a humbling and uncomfortable life event. Tom kept it light and professional and his exact knowledge of the process made me comfortable. What was required of me was clear and concise and my case went through smoothly. Any communication/questions were QUICKLY responded to. Having dealt with lawyers on other topics, Tom is top notch and he actually cares. Thanks Tom!

Life is better because of Tom.
Tom handled our bankruptcy case expertly and flawlessly. He took the time to make sure we understood each step of the process, handled everything for us, saving us trips to the courthouse. We were expecting a high price, but he was very affordable. If you are looking for a lawyer, save time, go to Tom. A decision we would make again with no regrets.

Wonderful!
Tom was amazing from the start, he responded to my request for a quote almost immediately and walked me through the entire process making me feel completely at ease. It's a very difficult decision to make and then going about choosing from a myriad of attorneys makes the process even more daunting. I was embarrassed about the situation I had gotten myself into and Tom made me feel so comfortable and was there to answer every question that I had. He is affordable, professional, extremely knowledgable, and just an absolute pleasure to work with!
