I want to thank you for assisting me through this difficult times of going through bankruptcy. I was at the hearing today. Mr. Weekes was there for me. I was scared, but he re-assured me. It went on smoothly. There was a time I became emotional, and started to sob quietly, and looked sad. I want to thank you again kindly.

If you’ve gotta go through the mess of financial bankruptcy, these guys are the best. My attorney as well as all of the paralegals and staff made going through hell much easier than I could have ever asked. Any questions I had they responded to immediately. They were always timely and gave me great legal advise. They aren’t the cheapest option, but the payment plans provided were unbeatable.

I am extremely happy with [Ascent] Law. First, no one ever wants to be in a position to have to file for bankruptcy, but if you do, you need someone who knows what they are doing, and will keep you informed. I was very nervous that I wouldn’t pick the right lawyer, or we would end up with someone who just wanted to get paid, and left us hanging. Our lawyer at Weekes (Perry Bsharah) has been AMAZING. He is always fast to respond to any of my questions, and is very good at making sure you understand what is happening, and that you are comfortable with the process. He has been there every step of the way, and when we had our meeting of creditors, he made sure we knew exactly what to expect, and he was literally the ONLY lawyer there that had everything ready, and organized for their client. This process has gone smoothly, and I can’t recommend Perry enough. Thank you Perry for making this as easy and painless as possible. It has been worth every penny. Now I can focus on my health, and my family instead of hospital bills, and creditor calls.
