★★★★★ Some bad financial decisions including being laid off resulted in huge credit cards bills that we were never going to be able to pay off. When we finally got fed up with the collection calls, my husband and I decided to get some help. We decided on bankruptcy giving up many things we didn’t really need, and the counseling was great for us at our age. It wasn’t easy, but we are much happier and debt free. Thanks Again, would recommend.

★★★★★ I had a student loans of $14,000, and a balance on my credit card, then I received a letter of garnishment. A credit counselor recommended I look into filing for bankruptcy. The bankruptcy trustee was easy to speak with and listened to me. Together we discussed the pros and cons and options available. The bankruptcy will pass, but I’m much happier without the burden of debt in my life. I should have gotten the financial counseling years ago.
★★★★★ They were completely upfront about what my options were, and gave me a clear cut plan about how I could stop the calls, bill collectors and bills that just kept getting bigger and bigger. Filing for bankruptcy was not an easy decision but the trustee was there for me all the way. Thanks Again!
