Chapter 13
Our attorney helped us a lot and guided us when we were going through bankruptcy. Whenever the lender gave us the hard time, we call him up and tell him the situation. He would then make a phone a call to the lender or advice us what to do. Thru experience, we made so much phone calls and make complaints but didn't do anything until our Attorney will do the phone call. Yap! to make my story short, It's better to have an attorney to represent you. I was so happy that i was finally done with my case thru the help of our attorney.I would strongly recommend Van -Alan Shima to stand by you.

Review on Services from Attorney Van-Alan Hideo Shima
My Husband and I are very Pleased with the Professionalism and Personal Service we received from Attorney Van-Alan Shima. He didn’t hesitate to answer any questions we had in the last 5 years working with him. He has made himself available each and every time we had issues, even if our concerns were small and minor. I feel he provided us service and support that helped us get through our difficult financial times. I will strongly refer any of my Family and Friends if they are ever in need of his service.

Felt like a person, not a number
Having to file for bankruptcy was something I had never imagined having to do, ever. But when life throws you curveballs in succession, being homeless as a single father of two children is not an option. The feeling of failure was overwhelming and I needed a professional to get me through the legal process. Van Shima was professional and caring throughout the entire process. I was able to easily contact him whenever I had any questions, and his office is conveniently located in downtown Honolulu. I never felt rushed or pressured by him, and always felt he treated me as a person and not just a number. Great with follow ups, and always available to clarify anything. I would strongly recommend Van Shima to anyone who may be in a similar situation that I was in. An excellent choice.
