What Our Clients Say

Shawnie, San Diego, CA

Bill and his paralegal, Tiffany, were so great throughout the process of my bankruptcy. I felt Bill was very knowledgeable about both Chapter 7 & 13 filings and was thorough about ensuring I had all necessary paperwork and bank statements to complete the process. Both Bill and Tiffany were VERY responsive and timely when communicating with me which made me feel like they were on top of it and organized! I would definitely recommend Bill for anyone who is going through this tough and emotional process.

William Fennell and his team were fantastic in handling my legal case. Charles Bethel was excellent as well. Both were extremely thorough and professional throughout the whole process from start to finish. They were firm advocates for me and provided sound legal advice. I would highly recommend this law office without hesitation.
