And for the first time both my wife and me felt confident to move ahead with the bankruptcy due to the through information and explanation we had received.

I was very pleased with the service I received from Mr. Shields. His Paralegals walked me through each step of my bankruptcy process and he met with me personally before I actually filed my case. On the day of my hearing the attorney he sent with me made me feel confident and comfortable.

I have since sent my sister and my boyfriend to him so that they can both file their bankruptcy claims with him.
