What Clients Say About Andrew

Twice Attorney Balbus shepherded my husband, an attorney, and me an office worker, through the process of determining how to remedy what seemed to be an untenable debt situation brought on by an unsuccessful self-employment venture and catastrophic health care costs. Feeling as though we would never get beyond working to pay debt service, falling behind in our taxes and saving nothing towards our retirement while earning 6 figures we sought guidance from Attorney Balbus. He assured us that looking to get a fresh start was not something to be mortified about. We presented him with the particulars of our seemingly hopeless situation and he quickly and expertly ran several scenarios by us. At first we were reluctant to take the plunge into BANKRUPTCY. Three years later we had not made any progress digging ourselves out of the hole and realized we had to heed Attorney Balbus’ advice. We wish we had acted sooner and had the relief we enjoy now.

He studiously reviewed our circumstances and made his carefully considered plan to get us a fresh start. During the daunting information gathering process Attorney Balbus supplied clear, organized step by step instructions. He reviewed all submissions and requested clarifications and additional information in a timely fashion. It is a small office which ensures your information is kept in confidence.

There were no surprises. We were well prepared for our meeting with the Trustee so we could concentrate on the questions and not be nervous or blindsided by a question we were unprepared to answer. Contact and follow up with the Trustee was carefully and quickly dealt with while keeping us in the loop. Some out of the ordinary and complex situations were assessed and distilled expertly by Attorney Balbus and then relayed to the Trustee. Attorney Balbus is the epitome of professionalism in all his dealing on our behalf.

We have our discharge and are starting over. Our only debt is a debt of gratitude we owe Attorney Balbus.

Thank you for making a difficult situation easier with your sense of humor and empathy.

Andrew made what was a very embarrassing, difficult and overwhelming situation to us, an easy and non-judgemental process from the first day we met him. He made us comfortable from the beginning and answered all of our questions and calmed our fears with confidence, ease and a bit of humor which helped tremendously. He was always quick to respond with any questions we had and guided us through the process with his extensive legal expertise and compassion. We have since been on a great path to financial success and have even seen our credit rating improve tremendously. We highly recommend him.

I want to thank you so much for all of your hard work and precious time spent defending and presenting my case. It was truly a pleasure to have you as our Attorney. God Bless and remain a great guy.

I highly recommend Attorney Balbus. He helped me realize bankruptcy was not the end of the world but a chance for a new beginning. He answered my questions fully. He understands the ins and outs bankruptcy and can explain it in ways that are easy to understand. He will tell you like it is and make sure you are prepared for every aspect of your bankruptcy, including the bankruptcy hearing. For me, the moment that I realized how exceptionally fortunate, as opposed to merely fortunate, I was to have hired Attorney Balbus occurred at the bankruptcy hearing. I sat with Attorney Balbus as we waited to be called forward to make my case to the bankrutpcy Trustee. Long before this day Attorney Balbus had given me a check list of everything I had to do from answering questions to getting documents and information, all of which he had gone through with me. So I am watching others come forward and get questioned by the Trustee for their hearings. I was so surprised to see that these people, with attorneys at their side, were not prepared, did not have documents or documentation that the Trustee required, and the Trustee in some instances said they had to come back only because the did not have what they were supposed to. I remember one attorney sort of looked down at his papers while the trustee spoke at length of the many things that should have been done by or prepared for that day, but were not. Some people were asked questions for information that they had clearly never thought about; in my mind it looked like the attorney had failed to prepare them and make sure they had done the steps I had taken thanks to Attorney Balbus’ instructions. My heart went out to these people. During my hearing, it became apparent to me that that Attorney Balbus had made sure that I had gotten all the documents and information needed, that he had organized and presented the information in the best way, that he had made sure I could be knowledgeable about the information related to my case so I could answer questions (he did help me when I forgot something) and that the Trustee had what she needed to decide my case. I walked out of that room relieved the hearing was over (and I did not have to go back) and so grateful that Attorney Balbus was my lawyer. I remain grateful. Don’t take chances with your bankruptcy. You will want Attorney Balbus by your side so you can have the best outcome possible and the least stressful experience possible.

Mr. Balbus took a scary situation and reduced the stress incurred with the thought of bankruptcy. He has a great sense of humor which also helps the situation.

One of the worst days of my life was walking into the Balbus Law Firm to find out more about bankruptcy. One of the best days I had was that same day after meeting Mr. Balbus. While nobody plans to go bankrupt, and with the rest of your life so up in the air, Mr. Balbus provides sound advice, a confident outlook and even some decent jokes along the way. I have not had many positive experiences with attorneys, and with so much unknown at the start of this process, I was very concerned. Should you need a bankruptcy lawyer, Mr. Balbus is one you can trust, will guide you capably and honestly, will stay in touch (even during many late evenings or weekends) and can explain things to you in easy to understand and friendly style. I thank you very much Mr. Balbus for your great expertise and knowledge.
