Attorney Tim Wilson's pledge:


My law firm is 100% devoted to representing individuals in bankruptcy matters.  I prepare most of the bankruptcy documents with my client's involvement (as opposed to just handing over the case to a paralegal or legal assistant).  When clients have questions or concerns, they speak directly to me.  Although I have a busy law practice, I do not operate my firm as a "mill' but rather I strive to focus on each individual client's concerns.

The best experience!
Let me start by saying that Mr. Wilson was a true life saver! I was at the end of my rope before I met him. He is very helpful, knowledgeable, reasonably priced, and flexible. Bankruptcy was something I had never considered and I was afraid because I've heard horrible stories... When I walked out of his office I felt at peace for the first time in years!!! I'm extremely grateful and I even got to keep my assets. Thanks Tim!

Extremely Helpful and Very Kind
I called to request a consultation late on a Friday, the attorney was not available at that time. He called me back first thing on the following Saturday. I was really surprised as I had not expected to hear back until Monday. Tim provided me with suggestions as to what I should do and also provided me with the needed steps to take to move through the dispute on my own. He said that hiring an attorney would be more than the amount I was dealing with in regards to the dispute. His explanation was great and made me realize that this wasn't something that I had to freak out about and that it could be dealt with regardless of the outcome. He also didn't make me feel bad about the situation, which I appreciated. If for some reason I need to file bankruptcy in the future (I hope not) or if I know someone who is in need of a bankruptcy attorney, Tim will be who I go to or suggest to others.

Endorsement Letter
Timothy, we feel privileged to have chosen you as our bankruptcy attorney. Through the process, you answered our difficult questions and advised us to hang in there when we felt the need to give up. You answered our every call, email and letter in a timely manner; we are truly grateful. It’s evident that you’ve chosen the right attorney when they have your best interest at heart and don’t look at you as just another case, thank you. In every encounter with you, you expressed a positive, upbeat demeanor regardless of the information you had to share with us. You were a tremendous contributor to the success of us completing our Bankruptcy and providing us with essential information to a new and positive start with our finances. We highly recommend you to anyone needing a bankruptcy attorney. Thank you, Timothy.

High Integrity
Tim is by far the most dedicated, selfless professional I have ever worked with. The word integrity understates Tim Wilson’s character. Tim dug in and fought for me when others would have rolled over and taken the easy route. I am proud to know Tim and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

First Class BK Attorney
Tim Wilson Exceeded our expectations! I didn't know what to expect when I began searching for bankruptcy attorneys, but after contacting Tim, my wife and I felt comfortable right from the very beginning. He's a very knowlegeable and experienced as a BK Attorney. He guided us from the first time we first talked on the phone, and then answered all Our questions and concerns when we met in person. He explained every step of the BK process and what to expect during the process. He is very good at what he does and is very respectful to his clients. I would highly recommend the Law offices of Timothy Wilson as i already have to several people i know that are going thru tough times during these tough times. Also, the fees are very reasonable. Thank you very much Tim!
