Mr. Bains was referred to us by a friend, so we had some sense of his work dealing with Bankruptcy. He understood our situation and provided us with the best solution. Mr. Bains and his staff replied to our phone calls and emails in a timely manner. We always felt we were in good hands and would definitely be comfortable referring him to others.

Paul left no stone unturned and made the stressful experience into something very manageable. From the moment I met him, he did not make me feel judged, but was sympathetic and encouraging. He prepared the case very thoroughly, and when we had to present in court, my case was accepted easily and quickly. He even managed to get the second on my house stripped, which was not expected! I recommend Paul highly.

Going through bankruptcy can be hard and very challenging, it has its moments where you feel as though you have just hit rock bottom; but when you have someone who truly cares, and puts in the hard work and effort to make things happen for you, an help you get through this process - it makes all the difference in the world. Paul Bains RESPONDS to phone calls, emails and text. You are NOT just another number, or client in the data base - he is personal, caring, and gives attention to detail. Since I had to go through this, I am most certainly glad that I had Paul in my corner. I will always say that he is THE BEST at what he does, thanks Paul.
