Stress no more.. Chap 7 Bankruptcy done right!
First time filing and I must say, if you are in need of a competent bankruptcy attorney and team of professionals to help navigate you through the complexities of paperwork involved. Brittany and her assistant Jayne have you covered! They were just amazing to say the least. Being self employed with very unstable income would have been to confusing to fill out all the paperwork correctly and screw up on my part without their help, causing possible dismissal. It was worth every penny spent on making sure it didn't. I filed at the end of Sept and had my debt discharged at the end of December. Now it's time for me to move on, rebuilt my credit and not make the same mistakes that I had done before. Thanks again for everything!

BEST bankruptcy lawyer!
We hired Brittany for our Chapter 13 bankruptcy a couple of years ago. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. She went above and beyond to help us and answer every question we had. Recently we requested to incur debt and purchase a house. Brittany gave us the same great advice, help and guidance that she gave with the initial filing and then some. We cannot recommend her enough. Thank you for everything Brittany!!!

Great service and professional performance
We hired Brittany to handle our Ch. 13 bankruptcy. She knows the Kitsap BK landscape and was able to develop a strategy which saved our home and kept costs down. She's a great communicator and handled everything with high ethics and professionalism.

Knowledgeable, Professional, and Timely
My father died intestate unexpectedly last year. I had a very brief amount of time to travel to northern Washington and deal with events in the wake of my father’s death. After consultation, Brittany delivered an exceptionally fast turn-around and had probate open in just a few days. Throughout the process she continued to deliver professional results and was frequently very helpful in resolving complicated questions about probate assets. Donna, Brittany’s paralegal, was equally as accommodating and categorically pleasant to work with. I strongly recommend contacting Brittany with your probate affairs without hesitation!

Handed our Case very professionaly
Brittany did a great job handling our Chap 7, all paperwork filed on time and keep us informed of what was going to happen going forward and was very available to answer our ongoing questions regarding our case. I would highly recommend Brittany to anybody who would need legal counsel, we were very pleased.

Professional and compassionate
When it becomes clear that you are in a financial place where you never intended to be, and you are feeling completely overwhelmed by the circumstances that led to it - it is so good to find not only an attorney but an entire office that does not make you feel like crud. Throughout a complicated process that included juggling short sales of investment property, we were treated like the best customers, told what to expect, given options that helped making the decisions that were required, as well as assisted with the "life after bankruptcy" questions. And yes, there is one.

Chapter 13 filing
My husband and I were very nervous about entering into this but we were deep in debt and about to lose our home, After a little research we found Brittany . At our consultation she listened to our story, explained the process and her perammeters and assured us that this was thr right thing to do. I was impressed with her ability to remember and decipher everything we told her. Her paralegal, LaJune Brister is amazing with the details and keeps everyone on track. They're a great team and I would definitely recommend their services .

Subcontractor contract
My business had started to grow requiring me to bring on subcontractors to meet the demands of my customers. In order to protect the business I contacted Brittany to review our growth plan and help identify any areas of exposures. Brittany put together an all inclusive subcontractor contract that provided the protection we needed, laid out the insurance/licensing requirements and even developed a non-compete clause to protect us from our subs from trying to take our business after we had invested the time and resources to train them. Brittany truly exceeded our expectations with the quality and detail of the contract as well as with the speed in which it was delivered.

A Bright Star
For someone like myself, unfamiliar with the legal process involving business and finance Brittany Cline was, and is, a God send. She made our entire experience as stress free and snag free as possible, while maintaining a professional and aggressive stance in our interest. There were no scarey or unexplained parts to our process, and everything was explained accurately before we actually experienced it. And besides all of the above, Brittany Cline actually cares about her clients. I would recommend her completely and wholeheartedly to anyone in search of a good honest attorney.

Property Line Encroachment
We had a complicated real estate issue concerning encroachment by our neighbor. Brittany did a fabulous job of researching it and developing a solution. She gave us an expectation of how it would play out and that is exactly what happened. From the start Brittany was professional, empathetic and passionate toward our cause. We give her our highest recommendation for anyone seeking legal advise.

Brittany Cline - An extremely smart, competent, thorough, responsive, and caring attorney. We would definitely recommend her!
Brittany Cline has been our attorney through an extremely complicated Chapter 7 bankruptcy--which was further complicated by a death in the family, resulting in probate issues; and also by our divorce. It has taken nearly two years for us to systematically work our way through all of the details and unexpected complications. Our bankruptcy was unique enough that some concerns needed to be elevated beyond the state trustee to the U.S. Bankruptcy court. Brittany Cline researched the complicated issues and protected our interests. Her thoroughness and diligence in pursuing all of the various details was essential in our unusual situation. Her good advice and counsel helped to get both my husband and I through everything. I know at times Brittany must have been frustrated by our multitude of questions and need for reassurance during these lengthy processes. She thoroughly explained everything so we knew what was happening, and what would need to be done next. Through it all she always remained calm, understanding, and professional. These are extremely good qualities for an attorney! It takes a very special person to help clients through some of the worst situations they will face in their lifetime while still maintaining a professional relationship and focusing on the ultimate goals. If you want an attorney who will really listen to you, and then provide the professional help you need for your own unique situations in life, I would definitely recommend giving Brittany Cline a call.

Brittany Cline One very Good Attorney!
Brittany not only responded to every question and issue posed by myself and wife that came up in our case but went the extra distance to research out other issues and questions to full resolutions. It was her personal determination to reach the best possible ending of our case, and to that end she was unrelenting unturnable in her efforts to get the correct answeres. On the occasions that she did not have an answere to a question she was forthcoming with a plan to get the answere and followed thru 100% of the time. Our case was a chapter seven bankruptcy. As with all cases there were very specific challanges and questions involved. One issue took her to the top of the court system to get the correct answere. That one question alone made a huge difference in the outcome of our case! It infact changed our futures, for which I will be eternaly greatfull
