Bill Fennell helped me and my wife in two different bankruptcy cases (my business and personal), and since the beginning his recommendations and time expectations were very close to the reality. He took the time to explain to us the options, potential outcomes and the results in both cases were very favorable to us. I really recommend Bill Fennell for a bankruptcy case. He really know the ins and outs.
