Ted Troutman Got Us Through A Tough Time
Wow, where to begin...felt hopeless and needed legal help to get my life back together. Ted made things easy to understand and stood by me through the legal process. That was the most important thing to me - he was there whenever I had a question or needed advice. He had my back. Ted helped turn things around for me. You can trust Ted Troutman.

Quick Help and Greatly Appreciated Assurance.
I consulted Mr. Troutman about a creditor freezing money in my bank account, with no previous knowledge of debt. After I filed with the courts that the money was exempt, the money was still fully taken out of my account leaving me in complete confusion. I had no idea how a debt I was unaware of was able to freeze all but $200 in my account and then take money that legally cannot be taken.... Mr. Troutman let me know my next step of action and what generally happens in these situations is the court has the money put back into the account when it is exempt money.... Just being given the knowledge of the process in the few moments I spoke with Mr. Troutman was a great help and his time us greatly appreciated. Even though I only needed a few minute consultation and didn't need to hire him... If I need help in his arena again he will be the first attorney I contact and recommend to others. Thank you for your help Mr. Troutman!

Wonderful Bankruptcy Attorney
I hired Ted when going through a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. He was there every step of the way even though we had issues with out of state property. He never left me hanging. He always got back to me in a timely and friendly manner. I strongly suggest him to anyone who is looking for a bankruptcy attorney!

I recommend Ted Troutman for bankruptcy cases & for being able to negociate & work effectively with others
Ted Troutman negotiated a somewhat difficult chapter 7 bankruptcy for me while protecting my assets with a chapter 13 bankruptcy. He also effectively negotiated with the federal attorney to keep my rights intact in an estate dispute which I believe took a high level of negotiating skill & a very good ability to work effectively with others to resolve disputes...

My company does service work for working professionals and one of our largest segments we target are Attorneys in Oregon.

Ted has a tremendous reputation amongst his peers and is considered one of the best Bankruptcy Attorneys in the state. Ted is extremely knowledgeable with any type of Bankruptcy and his legal peers often reach out to Ted for advice on difficult cases. He also practices Business Law and Personal Injury Law but primarily he does Bankruptcy Law. He has been filing Bankruptcies for over 30 years. He is an expert in his field but has a comfortable demeanor, great sense of humor and truly cares for his clients. If you need a Bankruptcy Lawyer or need sound legal advice for your Business know that Ted Troutman is the lawyer to call.

Good attorney who helps you understand the bankruptcy process
Ted and his office did an excellent job representing us in a bankruptcy and foreclosure process. He and his staff or extraordinarily knowledgeable about both processes. He is low key and easy to talk to. They have vast experience over 20 years and he was clear and thorough in explaining to us how the process worked, what we should expect, and about how long it would take. It is a busy office, so there were a few times when I had to reach out to get the latest news right when it happened, but they never missed anything important and always followed up with me before any decisions were needed. I am a client who asks a ton of questions and wants to be very involved and they handled my inquiries quickly and politely and were very responsive to my questions. I felt the price for what was offered was very reasonable and reflected the level of expertise and attention I received fairly. They were very up front about fees and what my costs would be for the process before it began. If you are looking for an office who has deep and wide experience in the bankruptcy process, I can highly recommend Ted and Muir Troutman.

amazing Attorney
If you ever feel that you're drowning because your finances have gotten to the point of not return, I highly recommend talking to Mr. Troutman. He is an increadible human being, and an excellent attorney, who will guide you through the painful bankruptcy process with patience and understanding.

Ted did a great job for us!
We had Ted handle multiple Bankruptcy's for us (Chapter 7, 13, & 11) over a nine year period. While this wasn't a high point for us Ted was able to walk us through the process and in the end turn this very negative experience into a positive and financially profitable experience. I'd never heard of anyone profiting by filing bankruptcy but in our case and due to the timing, Ted's handling of our case actually made us close to seven figures including a check for over $100,000 on the day that our Chapter 13 was discharged. The Bankruptcy Judge actually made a point of telling Ted what a wonderful job he had done and how well organized and presented his case was. Ted is a very level headed attorney that kept us somewhat grounded at a time when we were prone to be very emotional.

Well worth "the price of admission".
I was in a bit of a jam, and Ted helped me out in a very cost effective and timely manner. His expertise in the area of law concerned went a long way towards an efficient and beneficial resolution to my problems. 'He had solutions for my problems.'

Compentent, experienced, level headed and knowledgeable
I dealt with Ted on issues surrounding a possible bankruptcy in Idaho involving a partner's interests in a 197 lot housing development. He was able to get to the heart of the matter quickly and gave me excellent advice on how to proceed and protect my interests. This is not Ted's first rodeo, and it shows. He knows what he's doing and I highly recommend him.
