    I looked to Yelp to help find a bankruptcy attorney. I don’t know what it was, but something drew me to Paul’s office. I was lost, intimidated, and scared for what I was facing. Paul was EXTREMELY kind to me and made the process of filing Chapter 7 really easy. He came to court with me for the 341 meeting, and helped break the process down. I can’t say enough about Paul and his staff they were great!
