TESTIMONIALS

testimonials
“I filed my bankruptcy there several years ago with Jay. On the edge of a nervous breakdown, sleeping as little as 8 hours a WEEK, I was a wreck. Jay was as much a therapist as he was a lawyer. Everything went swimmingly! My business and I are thankfully still here. That was a very rough year or so for me, but the Chapter 13 literally saved my life as well as my career. I paid off the debt easy-peasy and I have enjoyed making money ever since.”

Dear Mike:

We wish to thank you so very much for all of your help with our bankruptcy — everything at the Federal Court in Benton, Illinois went so good (we were kind of nervous) — now we must start saving so it never happens again, and it will not.

The people who are in your office are so sweet. Please tell them “Hello” from us!

Dear Jay and staff,

I am writing simply to say “Thank You!” for all of your help and support these past few months as I journeyed through the bankruptcy process. It took just about all of the strength and energy that I had to make that initial office visit, as so many strong emotions were swirling through me! But after my first visit, I left with such a positive attitude and feeling of confidence. As I look back over the first visit, the thing that stands out most clearly is how I was treated. I was treated with respect, with dignity and with professionalism. I was never lectured nor belittled nor made to feel shameful or categorized as a ‘loser’. I cannot express what an impact this professional and respectful approach had on me! If there were any other way out of my financial hardship, I would have chosen it, but there wasn’t. I am very grateful for the professional expertise that you brought to my case, but much more importantly to me, I am extremely grateful for the dignity that you brought, as you walked with me through the bankruptcy process.

Sincerely yours,

A.E. – Union County, IL


Dear Attorney Howd,

I am writing to let you know how pleased I was with your service.  At no time during the process did I feel like I was uninformed, even though I have never been through anything like this before.  Attorney Willms and yourself gave me answers to all the questions I had with great patience and understanding.

Communications with me, and schedules, were laid out well in advance of deadlines.  I never felt rushed or anxious.  My initial apprehensions were quickly put to rest by the professionalism of your team.

I want to call attention to your associate Jennifer, who was the person I had the most interaction with in regards to additional documents needed by your office.  Jennifer was unfailingly polite and helpful, even when I could see she was overwhelmed with phone calls and other clients’ needs.

Should the opportunity present itself, I will heartily recommend you and your staff to acquaintances in need of the service, which I felt was a very reasonable price for the value received.

Best regards,

T.R. – Saline County, IL


Lyndon,

To all of you – Thank you. It has been a long two years, but we made it. Without all of you fighting for us we would have nothing. I know it was a lot of work and hours. God bless you all.

J. & G.K. – Williamson County, IL


Jay,

I just wanted to thank you for all your help.  And, for getting me started on my new beginning.

To the Staff,

I would like to thank you for getting us through the bankruptcy process.  It was a very stressful time for us, and we are very grateful that we had your office to get us through.  We were treated with respect and dignity, for which we are very thankful.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Mr. Willms, who handled our case.  His kindness and understanding was truly appreciated.  I can honestly say I was impressed with everyone I came into contact with at the Clinic.

D. & S.W. – Saline County, IL


Thank you so much, Jan!

This has not been an easy decision for us, but your office has made this process so much less stressful than I could have imagined.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.

A.W. – Jefferson County, IL


To Whom It May Concern:

Please thank Lyndon, Jay and [the trustee] for a painless and quick hearing today.  I was in and out before the hour was over.  Lyndon was a great reassurance during the hearing and [the trustee] was such a comfort, completely nonjudgmental, with an awesome disposition.  I am very grateful that this whole process was not a dreadful experience.

Your office deserves all the praise I can dish out.  From the moment I first called to this very recent e-mail, I have been treated with courtesy, expediency, and was well informed and respected.  Everyone was great to work with, and it made me feel at ease about the whole issue.  To be honest, it is kind of embarrassing, but I do realize that it can happen to anyone.  I wouldn’t change anything if I had to do it all over again.  So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your awesome service.

The decision to file bankruptcy wasn’t easy. Coming to terms with my personal financial crisis was extremely difficult. But Lyndon Willms and the staff at the Bankruptcy Clinic made it so I felt comfortable in what I was doing and knowing it was the best thing. Amie Nitz was so helpful through the process and I can’t thank her enough for everything she did from answering my millions of questions to making sure everything was filed on time and in order…

Mr. Curry:

Just a short note to Thank You for your help – when I needed it so badly. Again thank you and all the staff I met there – every one was very nice and helpful.

Our sincerest thanks,

J. & J.G. – Jackson County, IL
