Me and my husband went through Dorothy for our bankruptcy. We always thought going through a bankruptcy would be super stressful, but they made it a stress free process and pretty darn easy! Everyone in the office is super nice and are eager to answer your questions. Going through court was a breeze, which I though was going to be the hardest part!! I definitely recommend Dorothy!

Approximately the 3.5 years ago I filed for a new start through bankruptcy with the assistance of Mrs. Bartholomew and her staff. I'm happy I had this experience along with the classes on how to not get myself in that position again. I'm a medically retired ARMY Infantry soldier who needed a fresh start. I had a wife with a child on the way and was in a very dark place in my life because of past choices. I take full responsibility for my actions at all times! Never do I try to pass the blame off to someone else. Because of placement through my choices, I found myself in a place where I needed financial help! I got the necessary classes and support from Mrs. Bartholomew's Office. Now the years later I'm not only alive but, I recently signed for a $284k home, I have a healthy family, job stability has always been there but it's really here now! So much has changed! Thankyou Mrs. Bartholomew and Staff! Without your help I don't know where I'd be! I went from Washington to Texas and back to Washington! I've been through some trials and I'm finally secured! Thankyou for everything you've done to assist in my new start.
