"We knew we needed to file bankruptcy the day we were served papers.. Besides that, the collection calls were getting more and more unbearable. Unemployment had taken a toll, and it was not possible to pay creditors.

But like everything else in life, you want to find the person who knows his or her job, and who cares about you as a client. Although we had consulted with 3 attorneys about filing bankruptcy, we felt the lawyers would not be able to handle our rather complex, perhaps unique case.

After visiting with Rich Fonfrias, the decision was easy. Part of our decision was based on the fact that this is all he does, so he is well versed in bankruptcy law.. A plus was that we never felt alone, and the process was simplified for us due to Rich's knowledge, as well as his competent, friendly, case support staff. We're not done yet (bankruptcy takes several months) but can rest assured, knowing Rich will be there for us. We give the Fonfrias Law Group our highest recommendation."
