The Gauss Law Firm
About this pro
After researching bankruptcy lawyers in our area, we chose Robert because of the insightful postings on his website and a conversation with him at his office. Robert does not waste your time with a sales pitch. After carefully listening to our situation, he gave us an honest assessment as he described the intricacies of the law and why we would face many obstacles due to our particular circumstances. It was not going to be easy, but Robert was honest and made us so comfortable, it gave us the confidence that we would prevail. Once we agreed to work together, Robert gave us a very fair price and was clear on what we needed to do, what he needed from us, accompanied by a very accurate timeframe. Throughout the process, Robert kept us informed at every step. His updates, including what to expect and how to handle it, were delivered with plenty of time to respond and his assessments were accurate each time. He never failed to take our calls, always answered our questions (even the silly ones) with patience and reassurance, getting us over the hurdles. Although there were many issues, including a very unresponsive trustee, with many, many extra hours of work on his part, Robert hung in there and brought our case to a successful conclusion (all without any additional fees). Imagine that, a lawyer that did not keep upping the price. Robert has, on several occasions, helped on other issues. Always with professionalism and support. If it is not in his expertise, he always has an excellent referral to help me out. With each referral, Robert always followed up to see how things worked out.Jun 9, 2016
We had a complicated bankruptcy. Rob did a lot of research and did not charge any more than he quoted. He was very professional and was always available for questions. Everything went well at our first hearing. No issues. Very knowledgeable.Dec 29, 2014

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?You should meet with a lawyer to set a price, each case is different, people offering cut-rate low fees for bankruptcy services do not pay attention to each case. they KNOW each case is different yet want to "sell" you on a low initial fee. You will pay for this later. You will be quoted a fair fee, but only AFTER I know about your case please. In this way Thumbtack is not ideal for seeking legal services, in my opinion. Call me, or better yet, come in for a consultation, we will find a fee that works.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bankruptcy has become increasingly complex, aside from having 22 years of experience, I regularly attend seminars on bankruptcy law. In particular, the means test is complex and your bankruptcy lawyer should know what he or she is doing.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 bankruptcy, criminal defense, civil litigation and family law. General Civil and Criminal practice with emphasis in bankruptcy law.
