When I started to realize a bankruptcy maybe my fate, it was not an easy conclusion or decision to come to. I met with Ms. Sandher feeling completely embarrassed and overwhelmed by my finances. Ms. Sandher has a very kind professional attitude. She listened to my situation patiently and never made me feel bad about my circumstances. She is personable and non-judgmental. Her firm offers free consultation, during which time she thoroughly explained the process and helped me understand which path is best for my situation. Never feeling pressured, I felt very comfortable with her and realized she was the person I wanted to represent me. She was always prompt with answering my questions and concerns. She also stayed on top of my case progress and was thorough reviewing my documents. Throughout the whole process there were no surprises and all went smooth through case discharge. Her team members are very friendly, helpful, and professional. I sincerely appreciate all the help and professionalism shown by the firm.

Kim had multiple deadlines from clients yet she still made time for me. Kim was extremely thorough and made sure my documents protect me. She always had my best interest in mind.
I would absolutely hire her again and I recommend her to anyone looking for a thoughtful, meticulous attorney to be on your side!

I never thought I'd be the person writing a review for a bankruptcy attorney, but here I am. I am the custodial father of two amazing boys, one of whom required expensive medical treatment. There were other problems that turned up, a wife with cancer, and some personal emotional situations which were compounded by bills piling up. Not to be too dramatic, but the quality of my life was slowly being drained into a dark, financial hole. Frankly, I was so myopic about my social status and the fear and stigma of bankruptcy, that instead of being pragmatic, I maintained the substandard, financial status quo of my dire situation. They say that if you put a frog in hot water it will instantly jump out, but if you put it in cold water and turn up the heat a little at a time it will stay there until it dies. That was my situation until I sat down with Kim from Rao & Pierce. My first meeting was informative and respectful. We discussed my situation and my impulse to feel shame was quickly eased into a productive and thoughtful plan on how to get out of the mess I was in. She was friendly and professional and eased me through the process in a thoughtful, attentive matter. I never felt that my questions were stupid, nor did I feel rushed or like I was wasting her time. In fact, the entire process happened in a way that I could handle and as we approached date I felt more and more secure in my decision to start a new. Bankruptcy is a serious matter and even though I have some regrets, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to begin reconstructing my financial life in a way that helps me and my children recover from a crazy few years in the past. In fact, this is what the bankruptcy laws were written for. I highly recommend Kim and Rao & Pierce to anyone in a similar situation.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I first met Kim through our involvement in the young/new lawyer community, and later she was my opposing counsel on several cases. Kim is knowledgeable and experienced, and cares deeply about her clients. I endorse Kim and would not hesitate to recommend her to others seeking an attorney.
