I would wholeheardedly recommend Mr. Dunne to anyone for Bankruptcy! He is a genuinely nice and good person, as well as being an outstanding Bankruptcy lawyer.
I was overloaded with debt and felt hopeless when I happened upon him. I had found his contact information from an online website that promised low cost bankruptcy. I literally thanked my lucky stars to have ended up with Mr. Dunne because in searching for a lawyer, i came across one ‘lemon’ after other until finally airing a sigh of relief upon meeting him! The first lawyer I looked into never returned any of my phone calls. I left 5 messages over the span of several weeks. Then i phoned a family friend who is also a lawyer who knew him. I finally received a voicemail from him and I returned his call. He didn’t call back. A seriously bad case of false advertising since his website purported that he always returned phone calls immediately, unlike other lawyers who were always in court, and never returned calls. The second lawyer I looked into had a creepy car salesman personality and and gave me the run around as to price. “We won’t know for sure how much the bankruptcy will cost.” What do you mean, you won’t know? This did not sit right with me and I canceled the appointment.
When I finally set the appointment with Mr. Dunne’s office, I really didn’t even know if I would keep it. I had only spoken to his very pleasant secretary on the phone but I was becoming increasingly disillusioned about finding a trustworthy lawyer. Mr. Dunne immediately allayed my fears. When I met him in his office, I liked him immediately. A firm friendly handshake, a lovely smile and a very friendly face and warm personality. Sometimes you just have to trust your gut instinct and this felt right. My husband came into the office to join us and I could tell he liked him, too, and was very impressed as well with his professionalism. Mr. Dunne had all of the paperwork organized. He had a set price. Everything was upfront. Every t was crossed and i was dotted. We felt very calm and secure and could breath a sigh of relief.
Filing for bankruptcy does come with frustrations. The process begins with filling out a large packet of paperwork which was overwhelming, but Mr. Dunne walked me through it step by step. After handing it in, he went over it with a fine tooth comb and coached me through the tough spots. He was very encouraging throughout the entire process. Mr. Dunne also always returned my calls immediately and was always cheery, pleasant, informative, and professional, and answered all of my questions, ….and relieved my fears. All in all, I know I made the right decision and he allayed my fears at every turn.
When it came to completing the manditory online testing, that was my biggest challenge, but Mr. Dunne persisted in encouraging me and calling me frequently to check my progress. I felt very supported by him and this was much appreciated and I finally finished! The tests turned out to be extremely enlightening and educational, and I appreciated his encouragement and that he had pre-arranged them with that particularly excellent debt website. I felt taken care of. Furthermore, before we went to court for my case, Mr. Dunne walked me step by step through what would happen. He was there in the waiting room with me when he said he would be, by my side when I met with the judge, and kind and friendly walking me out.
Whew! Now that it’s over, I am so happy I did it and from the start was so happy to have chosen Stephen Dunne as my Bankruptcy lawyer. Bankruptcy is not a pleasant experience, but he made it a good one. Stephen Dunne is trustworthy, a good, honest, down to earth human being, and an excellent lawyer. I already have…and would recommend him to anyone!
