Wonderful human being❤️
Brett Wittner is the only attorney I have sent people to for the last 20+ years when it comes to bankruptcy. His fees are the lowest I’ve seen with no less professionalism. Brett takes interest and understands how easy it is to get into situations so you don’t leave feeling like a loser. I will forever refer him to people and will always continue using him myself if need be. I consider Brett a friend/family and that’s how he treats my family. Thank you Brett for being so awesome over the years. We appreciate you and are forever grateful. Always, The Kalii Family

Brett Wittner, A Caring and Professional Lawyer
Brett Wittner is a professional lawyer who educated and helped me through the process of my bankruptcy. His compassion of understanding my financial crisis helped me to have Brett Wittner as my bankruptcy lawyer. It is visible for one to recognize Brett’s hard work he does for his clients. He cares about the present and future of the client’s financial welfare. He is a wonderful lawyer. I would recommend Brett Wittner as an excellent bankruptcy lawyer.

Efficient, honest and thorough
Working with Brett was a very easy, smooth process. Even when we threw obstacles at him he was quick to offer us our options, his advice, full understanding of our concerns and a quick solution. I especially appreciate that we did not feel pressured or uncomfortable during any part of our experience. I have referred/recommended him already and will continue to do so.

Thorough and Professional Service Provided
After interviewing a few attorneys regarding our potential Bankruptcy filing, we went with Brett as he was very honest and upfront on expectations. He guided us through all options for us to consider, and once we decided we had to move forward with a Bankruptcy, Brett and his team provided excellent service. They were timely in all communication and we had our case closed within the timelines he told us at the beginning of the process.

Quick and painless process
Brett and his assistant Jenn Odom were on the ball throughout the entire filing process of our bankruptcy. They always kept us in the loop and were very calming & helpful when we had concerns or questions. We’re now in the best financial standing in 3 years, our credit is at 700 & climbing and thanks to their guidance we’re maintaining great utilization of our lines of credit. Thanks Brett & Jenn

Honest, understanding and affordable
At a time when I felt financially vulnerable and was losing all hope to be able to move forward in life in making long term financial plans, I can really say that Mr. Wittner came to my rescue! Not only was he honest and understanding of all the events leading to my decision to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, he was able to make a strong case for me with supporting evidence to discharge successfully. I have him to thank going forward as I make future financial plans/goals. Extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend Mr. Wittner, without any doubt!

So knowledgeable
Brett has helped us through chapter 13 bankruptcy and I am shocked how helpful and supportive he has been. He responds in a timely manner and if for some reason cannot will let you know, he knows his stuff, he doesn’t sugar coat the process but he cares and is compassionate. I have had a couple of freak outs and he handled them well. He has led us in the right direction with information and made the process actually very smooth.

Just awesome!!
Earlier this year a situation came up that was way beyond me alone. I must have called 7 different places looking for advice. Each one was quickly adding up numbers that had me honestly scared. I cant overstate how helpful Brett was. Amazing work ethics, he was straight forward about what my options were and which he would recommend. Id like to add that he actually kept me from going bankrupt!!! You can clearly see that it's not about money but whats best for you, and honestly you just cant beat that, in a lawyer or any businessmen.

Would recommend them in a heart beat
Great firm! Very patient with all our questions and answered them clearly in a way that we could understand. Took care of all our problems. We had a large number of liens on our property that normally cost $200 a lien to remove. There were so many it would have cost us somewhere around $4000. He told us that would be "unconscionable" to charge us that much and charged us at a reduced fee. Thank you for a great experience (if bankruptcy ever is a great experience)!!

happy and enlightened client
We did not know where to start but Brett was very capable and helpful in not only getting things in the right direction but in explaining the background information that made his hand holding relevant. I would highly recommend his services to others.

So helpfull
Mr. Wittner and staff are helpful, understanding and non judgmental. filling bankruptcy can be embarrassing. For lack of better words "Brettt's got your back" He is efficient, affordable and saved my financial future. Since hiring him two years ago for bankruptcy court, I have reached out to him twice regarded completely unrelated legal issue. Witch he via email consulted me on for free. I think hes an awesome guy, who most importantly, can be trusted.

Excellent professional work not forgetting human kindness
In trying to save our home from foreclosure, we met with two attorneys who made us feel that all was lost. Just give up and let it be. They also encouraged us to pay the fees for them to try with no guarantee. However, we decided to look again and came in contact with Mr Wittner. On our first meeting with him, he explained everything to us and for the first time, we felt very hopeful that there was actually someone who can help us save our home. He took us through the bankruptcy process successfully. He is extremely knowledgeable and diligent in what he is doing. In my opinion, he is a lawyer who is very passionate about his work and takes a lot of pride in what he is doing. He made sure that our matter was submitted in a timely manner and was always open to answering all our questions. His service was also less expensive than the other pessimistic lawyers. I recommend him highly as he is very honest and I believe that money does not take precedent over the excellent quality of his work. I felt he treated us very kindly and understood our situation and worked to ensure we receive the most desirable outcome. When our matter was settled, we felt that we paid very little for the excellent service we got in return. At no time did we regret choosing him as our bankruptcy lawyer.

Surprisingly friendly, flexible, and very knowledgeable
Brett Wittner made my experience of going through a bankruptcy easier and less stressful than I thought possible. His expertise and friendly demeanor set me as ease, and made sure I was in the mindset to understand the process, which he made clear and easy to grasp. Brett was always responsive to my questions, and made sure I felt like a high priority I highly recommend his services to anybody seeking assistance through bankruptcy.

Brett is down-to-earth & Thorough - Glad we found him!
Making the decision to "give up" wasn't an easy one for my wife & I. The last thing anyone wants to do is admit they've made some very poor financial decisions. Little did we know that our poorest decision wasn't deciding to file but instead was in choosing the wrong attorney. We are living proof that this decision is vital to coming out of the process with an ounce of dignity. We struggled for months with our previous attorney and were mocked at with statements like "turn in your membership to the country club" when we had no such thing. Instead, we piled on debt in order to take care of my aging parents and I'd do it again. We just couldn't recover after the economy crashing. After firing our previous attorney, we met with Brett who was straight forward and helped settle us. In short, he made us feel like we were human and recognize that the process isn't one that is easy but their is light at the end of the tunnel. Brett had a custom Chapter 13 put forth to align with our budget and in doing so really worked with us and more than anything he LISTENED. He informed us of what to expect and walked us through possible options - what a novel idea. If you want a professional law firm who is timely on their appointments, down-to-earth and straight forward, this is the law firm for you. If you want assembly line law firms then look elsewhere. Brett's firm is in a class in of itself. Period.

The Best!
Brett and team have been wonderful to work with. We started out with a different attorney, and our experience was terrible. From taking over our mess of a case to correspondence back and forth, its been a seamless transition. Very appreciative of their hard work and making this stressful time very manageable.He has been very professional and honest throughout our case. Highly recommend!!!
