"Thank you Julia for doing what everyone else said could not be done"

5 Stars

Thank you Julia for doing what everyone else said could not be done. When I closed my company, sold my trademarks and settled with creditors a disgruntled lender came after me personally. My situation was complex and I was emotionally broken; nonetheless Julia, together with her amazing back office legal support Theresia, took the time to understand it in detail. Together they supported my Chapter 7 process in a transparent, professional and most importantly humane way; supporting me through each gruesome step filling for Bankruptcy entails. I am grateful I did not give up and settled with the many firms and lawyers I spoke before Julia. Thank you again Julia and Theresia, I just accepted a new dream job and a new phase in my life has begun thanks to you both.
