Since 2004, Helping People Get Out of Debt with Dignity and Respect
Helping people get out of debt through bankruptcy protection is all we do. If you haven’t yet, please Google us and read our reviews on Yelp, Google, Avvo, and other review sites. Our clients have a lot of kind things to say about us, and they have good reason. We know that our clients are in a stressful, often overwhelming situation. All of them have struggled to pay debts that are preventing them from getting ahead and on with their lives. We are here to help you get out of debt.
Below are just some of the reasons our clients feel we deserve such praise.
- We care about our clients. You get personal attention from day one directly from husband and wife bankruptcy attorneys Jon and Kim Brooks and the rest of our team—including our office dog Baxter!
- We give everyone who asks for one a FREE consultation with one of our San Jose bankruptcy attorneys. And we are seriously generous our time. Expect an hour and sometimes more. For free.
- We don’t push anyone into filing bankruptcy. If you would be better off not filing either Chapter 13 bankruptcy or Chapter 7, we will honestly tell you that. Perhaps there is another way for you to get out of debt. We may not get you as a client, but we would rather look out for your best interests even if that means we don’t earn any fees.
- Our fees are always quoted to you in writing. Our fees are also typically less than many other bankruptcy attorneys. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases, we follow the “no-look” attorney fees published by the bankruptcy court. For Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, we quote fixed, competitive fees for the entire case. There are no hidden fees.
- We care about the integrity of the bankruptcy system. We don’t just have a great reputation with our clients. We also have earned the respect of our bankruptcy judges, the bankruptcy trustees, and other bankruptcy attorneys in San Jose and the Bay Area.
- We’re responsive. When you hire us, you can expect a return call or email from us, usually the same day, for as long as your bankruptcy case is open.
If you’re facing financial difficulty, need to get out of debt, and you live in the Bay Area, please contact our San Jose Bankruptcy Attorneys, Jon and Kim Brooks, for a free consultation. You’ll be glad you did!
