“I filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2013 and I will speak about my experience in 2 parts. The first part is my experience with the bankruptcy filing and completion. One thing that is REALLY important to me is communication and the feeling that my concerns are being addressed and the time is taken with me in my appointments. I really appreciated that Mr. Slomka never rushed me out of an appointment, always answered my questions clearly so I could understand, and gave me the attention I needed to feel that my case mattered. The process was surprisingly fast and required very little of me outside of providing all the information he would ask for. The entire process was completed in a handful of months and we were so happy with the end result I have referred him to a number of friends who were also effected by the mortgage crash!
Second part of my review…3 years later, we have built our credit back up to over 700, continued with being debt free, and worked hard to get financially strong again. We had fallen victim to the mortgage crash and this is why we needed to file (adjustable rate mortgage made our mortgage unaffordable). The experience since filing bankruptcy has exceeded my expectations. My best suggestion after filing is to continue to work toward becoming financially stable and maintain a debt free lifestyle. THERE IS LIFE AFTER BANKRUPTCY!! If you are worried about it, don’t be, the stigma behind it is something of the past and not something you should concern yourself with today.”
