Bankruptcy Client Testimonials

“John was recommended to me by the real estate who helped me do a short sale on my house after my divorce. John helped me put my life together by putting me in the chapter 13 program after explaining to me the other programs. I feel now more confident for a new start over. John is very knowledgeable, patient and professional. I wish I had him for my divorce.”

– Elway, Chapter 13 Client

“My husband and I received peace of mind that our financial situation could improve after the very first meeting with John Hilla. We were about to lose our home to foreclosure but John showed us that by filing bankruptcy we could keep our home and rid ourselves of the debt that was ruining our lives. It has not been easy but with John’s professional advice and continuing support we have managed to move on financially.”

Working with [John] has been a pleasure, not only in the sense that we were able to alleviate our bankruptcy concerns but also we never had any surprises pop up.

“I would like to comment on the professional, efficient and courteous manner my bankruptcy case was handled by John my attorney. I am a 69 years old female and due to the economy I lost my home, a very trying and stressful situation, but John assured me over and over of a satisfactory outcome. John and his legal assistant … was available every time I called and together we handled the mountains of paperwork. We met at the Detroit Court for the hearing and he was very considerate, kind and reassuring me that all the details were covered. Just received my discharge and am now a free woman! Thank you John I would recommend your legal services to anyone!”
