Scott Waterman practically held my hand through my bankruptcy! It amazed me how he could take my massive pile of paperwork (bills, pay stubs, bank statements) and wave a magic wand and turn them into a complete, concise series of reports. He listened with a sympathetic ear as I explained all the twists and turns of life that brought me to that place. I'm sure he hears it every day, multiple times. But not once did I feel as if I was on a conveyor belt, or just another body in the chair. Scott went with me to court, and was very helpful in advising ...
My wife and I reached the point where we couldn't manage credit card debt that had grown to severe amounts. Although people had recommended considering bankruptcy in the past, we were hesitant because of both the stigma and worrying about all the complications and ramifications. Fortunately a colleague of mine recommended Scott. From the first meeting he made sure to put us at ease, and then guided us through the process so we understood all the decisions to be made. He advised us on things we would want to do in order to manage life after bankruptcy. Due to a change in income during the ...
Scott was great from the start, very knowledgeable, thorough with the bankruptcy process. I was referred to Scott by a friend that had to experience bankruptcy like myself and am grateful for her referral. I went into the process nervous and uneasy about the outcome, and it was very smooth, not stressful, and a complete success. I would recommend Scott to anyone who has to go through a personal bankruptcy!
Scott has made my journey through the bankruptcy process a breeze. From start to finish all of my questions were answered in a way that I would understand them. He also made himself available to my schedule if I needed to speak or meet with him. I am very grateful and satisfied with the outcome and I cannot thank him enough for helping me through this process. June, 2015
Patricia Mayer was a tremendous help to me and my family. She made the process very simple and painless. I was very nervous to enter into this process for several reasons; pride, work entailed, and the affect on my life. Patricia took all of that into consideration while working with me. She knows that this is not something that anyone wants to do, but sometimes has to. She made me realize that this is a strategy, not a knock on my pride. I was able to retain personal affects and felt good about doing it. I owe Patricia an immense amount of thanks. So Trish, ...
Patricia is patient and understanding to her clients’ needs. Due to her knowledge, I was quite surprised how successful our initial consultation was. Our concerns and needs were met and options were available. Through the process I observed how admired and respected Patricia is by her colleagues and court officers.
Patricia Mayer handled my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy case. She was extremely professional. Her communication was great and she was always pleasant. Bankruptcy is not an easy thing to have to go through. What I respected and appreciated most about her is, never once did she make us feel ashamed about having to file Bankruptcy and she always treated us with the utmost respect.
Scott Waterman put me at ease the moment I walked in to his office...dealing with a very difficult and emotional time. He was most knowledgeable, and informed me as to what to expect, and he was "right-on".Mr. Waterman was always accessable and answered all of my questions...as repetitive as some might have been. I wish I had seen him earlier!!
