Best choice I could have made!!
I couldn’t ask for better representation in my bankruptcy process. This was totally new to me and I was very nervous to say the least. I had visions of people talking down to me and making me feel horrible about myself. Kim did everything to make me feel relaxed through the process and answering my many questions. I am very luck to have chosen her for my representative in this case. 5 stars +

Very happy!!
Really helped ease my anxiety in a financial situation out of control. Back in a debt free situation and a rising credit score in matter of a couple years.

Excellent Attorney, Excellent Human Being and an "Angel in Disguise"
When I noticed an advertising for Kim Covington on TV, I felt inspired to ask her to be my attorney. She was "above and beyond" what I had expected. She was not only professional, knowledgeable, efficient, committed but also patient and caring during the whole process resulting in a good outcome. When, during my first free consultation, she noticed that I was nervous and stressed out, she put me at ease and kindly smiled reminding me, "don't forget to breathe." Her humorous approach made me laugh and after a year, I still follow her advice. I felt comfortable and safe with her. I felt blessed and I am very grateful for her dedication and professionalism and also her for her emotional support. Even a year later, after the bankruptcy discharge, when I had questions regarding some past tax issues, she still went "the extra mile" helping me by doing some research for me and also giving me helpful advice. She is an excellent attorney, an excellent human being and for me, an "Angel in Disguise," a person with a kind heart always ready to help. I do have a new positive outlook on life because of Kim. I highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Kim!

Hired Kim and Very Satisfied
Kim Covington handled our bankruptcy case quickly and efficiently. She held our hand through the process and provided quick and timely responses to our emails with questions. Kim even went the extra mile for us as our circumstances were different than most. We have never had to deal with this before and Kim made it very easy and was very reassuring in our time of need. We wish every professional we have ever dealt with was as wonderful as Kim.

Kim genuinely cared about and worked quickly to help resolve my financial difficulties and file my bankruptcy case.
Kim acted quickly to provide me the necessary information I needed and helped to evaluate my case. Her advice and knowledge were so valuable, ultimately leading to relieving my giant fears in dealing with past debts. I absolutely felt Kim was caring towards my overwhelming situation which began with an unexpected garnishment to my wages. Kim resolved the garnishment immediately. Kim communicated the essential steps and timelines quickly and assisted me in preparing necessary documentation. I did file an successful bankruptcy case. Even after the case was finished Kim offered to communicate with creditors to resolve existing issues I was experiencing, and again quickly and efficiently. Bankruptcy can be daunting and psychologically challenging. I felt confident and supported by Kim’s approaches. If you have a fear of selecting or working with an attorney, look no further. The entirety of this took place during the Covid 19 Pandemic and Kim made the process doable and smooth in the midst of that extra challenging situation. My life has been changed for the better. She goes to bat for you 100 %.

The Perfect Combination of Personable and Professional
Kim has been patient, comforting, informative, and overall, a real pleasure to work with in the stressful situation of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. What I find remarkable about her is not only her high level of competence, experience, and knowledge in her field, but how personable she has been throughout the process. She gives the feeling that she takes a real and sincere interest in her clients as individuals and she's on your side. She remembers personal details and asks about those things that are important to you. Her services are affordable. I highly recommend her and feel confident you will not find a better advocate.

You couldn't ask for someone better to help you through the bankruptcy process
Kim helped me through a very stressful situation — filing for personal bankruptcy. Throughout our time together, I was continually impressed with her expertise, depth of knowledge, and empathy. Kim answered my (many!) questions and helped me feel calm and collected. Thank you, Kim. You are amazing at what you do.

She is exactly as she says!
From our first contact, we knew she was on our side. She was very thorough and she and her staff did not miss a thing. Not like the attorney we had in Florida before moving to Oregon. She was also reasonably priced to boot!

Responsive and Empathic
Kim Covington showed great empathy towards my situation and was lightning-quick to file my case. Both Kim and her assistant Ana worked with me through each step of the way, making the whole process an easy and smooth ride.

AMAZING
Kim and her staff are amazing people to work with. It was easy to get on the phone make a phone interview and get my case started. She worked side by side with me and assured me everything would be fine. I am glad she took a huge load off my shoulder. I can actually sleep a lot better now. She was always a call or an email away. She sits down with you, goes through every step with you. Basically makes the process smooth sailing for anyone. Her prices are very reasonable and she even works with you on a payment plan. That was a huge plus for me. I would recommend her to anyone who is having any financial troubles. Great Attorney and Staff 5 Stars ⭐️

Kim is *awesome*!!!
Kim was personable, knowledgeable, and understanding of our unique situation. She was surprisingly responsive (often within a day) to our questions and concerns. She utilized the knowledge of her law partner to know specifically if we should file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 petition and she explained it to us in detail to make the decision easier. She is well respected and experienced within the court system and is a great hand-holder and strong advocate for all of her anxious and inexperienced clients. We *highly* recommend Kim!

A wonderful mix of intelligence and compassion!
Kim helped my husband and I navigate through a Chapter 13. We had complicating situations but she was on top of them all the way through! We felt free to email or call her at anytime and were treated with respect by the office and Kim always made time to solve whatever came up. She is very professional and makes large problems seem smaller! Thank you Kim!!
