Very kind but straightforward, overall excellent
We had John work with us for bankruptcy. It was handled very professionally and thoughtfully, in that we never felt ashamed or embarrassed for our bankruptcy filing. Everything was very cut and dry, and John was very clear about what to expect as we submitted documents and came to our court hearing. Response times were very fast and we never needed to wait long to hear back. He was always happy to answer questions, no question was a bad question. We did our best to keep everything organized and up to date as they requested. Would highly recommend and refer to John for his services!

Bankruptcy
I can not say enough good things regarding John A. Schultz and his team. I never thought in a million years I would have to file bankruptcy.... but it happened. John and his team walked me and my wife through the stressful waters with compassion, integrity, and efficiency. In my opinion I feel like I should pay them more then what they charge for the work they did for us. I could not be happier with the services they provided and would 100% most definitely use them in the future as well as recommend them to any one I know.

Lucky Meeting
We had left just left Court, after having lost a judgment for an auto that we had to let the lender take back, due to a loss of employment- We saw a notice for a free attorney day on our way out and stopped in. Met John & he did everything we needed, took care of every detail- was kind, professional. It was like someone steered us right to him. I would be safe to say, that I have never met any one so ethical, helpful, knowing and kind. Not at one time did we ever feel embarrassed. Just blessed to have met him. He and his staff made everything easy & understandable. I would recommend him without reserve.

John is respectful and handles his clients with care. Thank you John and Erika!

John A. Shultz handled my bankruptcy.
John was recommended by the senior legal help agency here in Skagit County. We interviewed each other and I hired him after his clear and careful explanation of what we both needed to accomplish. He, and his staff too, were always very courteous and accomplished all steps promptly and correctly. I am grateful for their help.
