From the initial phone call and in-person consult, John had a very calm, nonjudgmental demeanor. I talked to a few other attorneys prior to deciding to work with John. Bankruptcy is a difficult, embarrassing, and sometimes confusing process. As a single practitioner and small business owner, John gives his clients the personalized attention that I think is needed for bankruptcy. He was readily available via phone, email, and even in-person meetings to explain the process and set expectations, answer any questions, and alleviate our concerns. He even helped with slightly unrelated financial/legal issues (tenant/landlord issues, rental security deposit questions, etc.) Other larger bankruptcy firms seemed to not care so much about the individuals they were serving and often advertised the bigger, well-known attorneys to reel clients in but actually had less experienced attorneys or even paralegals/interns do the majority of work on their cases. Some firms don't even have an attorney attend the bankruptcy hearing with you, which I would imagine to be nerve-wracking for the client. You want to make sure the paperwork is completed and filed correctly, you are well-prepared for your hearing, and that the process runs seamlessly, so you can have a quicker path to a fresh financial start. I would not have felt as confident about the outcome if I were to go through this process alone or have a junior level attorney or intern work on my case. John was great to work with, and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering making such a tough decision. It is a very impactful decision, so while there are bankruptcy attorneys available for a fraction of the cost, I think it is worth the larger investment to have a caring, accessible, and experienced attorney like John on your side to ensure a higher chance of having a positive outcome and seamless process to restarting your financial future. We began the process in December, attended our hearing in January, and received notification of our discharge in March. We are already working to rebuild our credit, which John also provided advice on how to best go about the post-bankruptcy rebuild. Thank you, John!

Excellent experience with John M. Given at Freeman & Given as my bankruptcy lawyer. It was one of the best decisions I could have made. He helped me from start to finish in a very professional and courteous manner. Through the whole process, he kept me informed and was always quick to return my emails and respond to my questions or concerns. He made it a very non-stressful experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing help with bankruptcy. Thank you, John!

We are not done yet, but so far, the experience has been wonderful. The attorneys are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in Bankruptcy Laws. They made it easy for me to come in and their professionalism was very much appreciated. The support staff was friendly and professional, as well. The attorneys are available by phone, at all times and I found that to be incredibly helpful during a minor "moment of worry" on a Saturday night. I would recommend Lifeline Legal to anyone who needs help.

Working with Northpark Bankruptcy and Attorney Todd Warshof was a really great experience. Bankruptcy can be a very scary process when you do not know what to expect. Todd was extremely helpful. He responded to all of my 1,000 e-mails and concerns promptly, with constant reassurance that everything will be ok. He took care of any and all of my requests, and I never once felt like I was making a mistake. He made the Bankruptcy process as quick and painless as possible. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that is looking into bankruptcy.

Janet took over the communications we were trying to have with Wells Fargo regarding our loan mod. She was excellent in taking care of Wells Fargo's demands, but Wells Fargo is not nice. They screwed our credit scores stating that we paid late during the trial period of the loan mod. We paid the reduced loan payment amount on time during the trial period and every month thereafter to this day. Wells Fargo is not nice. Never will we get another mortgage through Wells Fargo; however, Janet is a 5 star attorney!

She is an outstanding lawyer in every aspect. She is dedicated to her work, and always come up with excellent results, and at the same time she charges much less than other lawyers who claim to fame, and no results. My experience with her work is top notch.

I have referred multiple clients to Janet and she has helped them save their homes from foreclosure. I would recommend her to anyone who is in trouble with a mortgage or needs help to get out of a difficult financial situation.

I did an internship with the Law Offices of Mark L. Miller, and I have to say the attorneys and staff are an amazing team together. I was blessed to have such great people to introduce me to the legal field, during this new chapter in my life. The attorneys are compassionate about what they do and will make you feel comfortable during a difficult time of your life. They will work hard for YOU. Attorney Miller and Attorney Lazarus are capable of assisting you in all your legal needs. Last but certainly not least, the chocolate chip cookies are delicious too!!

Where do I start... after consulting with nearly 6 attorneys, and finally have found Omri, I knew he is who I wanted to represent me. Working with Omri you will feel like you are the only client he is working with, he devotes 100% of his time to you and really throughly takes the time to not only understand your needs but also understand who his clients are. Omri sets up the expectations of how your case will take progress and the possible outcomes. However, what I was shocked to find is that the results completely exceeding my expectations and were far better than I could have hoped for. Omri is a multifaceted attorney, he is well versed with many areas of the law and allows you to really understand all the moving parts that might seem overwhelming as a client. I have already recommended Omri’s service to close friends who I know will be taken care of and incredibly happy with the results he will attain for them. My suggestion.... You won’t regret working with Omri. Your results will be far better than you can even anticipate. His results completely changed my life. That in-itself should identify the kind of attorney Omri is, and how much he cares about his clients.

I never liked dealing with lawyers...maybe because I had a bed luck to deal with some unethical ones in the past...but working with Anna Maydanik truly changed my attitude and opinion. Anna is a knowledgeable professional, who is friendly and understanding. In contact with her, you can feel that she cares and that your interest is her first priority. She is prompt and punctual and she understands financial limitations of her clients...meaning that she charges very reasonable rates. I can warmly recommend Anna for any kind of service and I will definitely use her in the future if the need arises.
