Guy Chism is unlike any attorney I have dealt with in the past- he is honest, approachable, straightforward and LISTENED to what I had to say. I found myself in need of setting up a Will to protect what little I have for my daughter. He gave me the pros and cons of setting up a Will/Trust and I am now confident that that my last wishes will be carried out. I would recommend him to anyone that might need a trustworthy attorney that won't rip you off- what he quoted for his services, is what I paid.

My wife and I initially consulted with Guy in 2011 about the possibility of filing for personal bankruptcy. Having no never experienced anything like this we were naturally very intimidated about the process. Guy very patiently listened to our concerns, educated us about the process and our options and provided us
with the information we needed to make the best decision for us.
We retained Guy and filed for Chapter 13 in 2011. Throughout the process Guy has provided continuous counsel and support. I am happy to report that we successfully completed our plan and were discharged earlier this year.
I would encourage anyone experiencing financial difficulty to consult with Guy. His knowledge, experience and guidance will enable you to make an informed decision about your financial future. His compassion and sincere concern for his clients well being are limitless. With Guy in your corner you never feel alone even in the most difficult of circumstances.

After suffering a catastrophic medical event and the death of two family members, I found myself in a world of hurt. Debt collectors were calling so constantly that I had to unplug my phone. Dr. Guy Chism helped me through the inevitable: Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I think part of what makes him so effective and efficient at helping you through the process is that he genuinely cares. He is a good listener and responder. He will command honesty and full disclosure from you, and you will find yourself in a much better place. When I needed help, he never left me hanging. In some of my darkest moments, I could feel God's Spirit at work. Dr. Chism has sent me job leads, also. I wouldn't have been surprised to have been billed more for his extra help. That didn't happen. 2017 is bound to be a much better year! If you find yourself in need of his services, rest assured, you will be in good hands!
