  • I was worried I was going to be scolded and judged, this was definitely NOT the case!

    As an introvert, I was worried about meeting with an attorney because I thought the experience would be like things I've seen on TV, where the attorney is loud and demanding. I was also worried that I was going to be admonished, judged or scolded and that the whole thing would feel like a tax audit. This was not the case. I felt like I was being protected and defended the whole way, and the staff made me feel at ease with their confidence and their "can do/will do" attitudes. Everyone had that quiet professional energy which along with the discounts you offer made my decision to choose you very simple.   

  • Even at my young age, I got a fresh start!

    When I found myself struggling financially, I started searching for someone who could guide me with what would be a new start for me. I'm young and very unknowledgeable so I needed some clear guidance from a professional. Attorney Bradstreet provided me with detailed insight. She explained all the options I had and payment discounts that could be provided and all around made my initial fear of filing for bankruptcy disappear. It was a very pleasant experience. My questions were always answered promptly and everything that was expected from me was made clear from the initial visit. The firm provided clear guidelines and structure and had the ability to deal with people in stressful situations. I have met with several different lawyers for various reasons and I would love to see more law firms handle clients who are mentally tired and stressed, with the same compassion that I received here. I would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone in financial distress!

    I was at the point where I was trying to have enough money to pay for basic living expenses, but the bills were piling up and making my credit score drop. I was worried when I came into Hampton Roads Legal Services about what would happen to all of my belongings including my car. But the attorney made me feel better and assured me that she could save it. I loved that the firm was very knowledgeable about the bankruptcy procedure and that I didn't have to do any of it alone. I also liked that there would be someone at all my court dates with me to help guide me so I wouldn't feel like I was alone in this. It was nice being able to remove all my debt and start fresh in order to start rebuilding my credit score and thankfully, because of Hampton Roads Legal Services, I didn't have to figure out the procedures and I was confident they could do it. I would definitely recommend Hampton Roads Legal Services because they were not only very knowledgeable, but extremely helpful too!

  • Social security income with harassing creditors

    I was living on social security income and had a couple judgments against me with creditors constantly harassing me. I didn't know what to do so I called Hampton Roads Legal Services. They were always there for me from the first phone consult all the way to the end of my case. During my consult the advice given to me was solid and I felt sure that I was doing the right thing. This was a scary decision for me and my questions were answered completely. I was scared about how my credit score would be affected as well as what debt I could actually discharge and if I could find a place to rent to me after the bankruptcy. But after talking with the attorneys my fears were completely erased. They were complete and detailed in their answers to all my questions. I loved that there was always someone available to answer my questions. I never felt rushed out of the office and every different scenario was presented with great details. I also liked how prompt everyone was with responding to my emails. If you are considering bankruptcy I would tell you not to wait, call Hampton Roads Legal Services ASAP!

  • Living off credit cards putting me further in debt, it was like standing in quicksand.

    I finally considered filing for bankruptcy when I realized that I just wasn't making enough money to cover all of my bills. This left me using credit cards to get by, which put me further and further into debt. I was concerned about the price and whether I could afford to file for bankruptcy considering I couldn't even pay my bills, but after speaking with Attorney Pfeiffer I left the office thinking that there was a solution for me. After going through the law firm I realized just how much goes into filing for bankruptcy and it would have been a huge amount of work to try and file on my own. The law firm had the expertise and the knowledge that was needed to help me file and the payments were realistic to get me to my fresh start. The whole process was straight forward and almost effortless. Hampton Roads Legal made everything painless. Thank you!

  • Consolidation programs that aren't working

    Before I tried bankruptcy I attempted to do a consolidation program hoping it would get me back on track. But then two of my creditors got judgments against me and I was about to be garnished. At that point I knew that the consolidation program wasn't working! When I was thinking about filing I was really nervous that I wouldn't qualify for a Chapter 7 as well as the effect that the bankruptcy would have on my credit score. However after my consultation i felt relieved. The attorney was able to answer all of my questions an relieved a lot of my worries and concerns. Hampton Roads Legal made things simple by allowing me to do everything either over the phone or through email. I honestly cannot think of how this process could have gone any better. I was even able to get everything done in just under two months! HRLS was everything that a person going through this process would ever need. Thank you!

  • My household finances were a disaster before I filed for bankruptcy.

    When I finally decided to search for a bankruptcy attorney, my household financial situation was very bad. I did not like the idea of filing bankruptcy because I felt guilty about not being able to pay back my debts. It was overwhelming to think about the amount of work I had to do collecting my financial documents and finalizing the bankruptcy process. When I found Hampton Roads Legal Services, I knew they were on my side. The staff was honest and very informative when I had questions or concerns. My paralegal Alexandria was especially understanding! The staff obviously care about their clients, and the biggest benefit of using HRLS is how helpful they are. HR Legal is straightforward and they will work with you to their best ability. I would refer them to anyone else having financial problems.

  • I felt confident and understood the bankruptcy process after talking to Attorney Pfeiffer!

    When I decided to look for a bankruptcy attorney, I began struggling with the prices that most lawyers gave me. I also did not like that the lawyers I found didn't explain things to me correctly. Bankruptcy is confusing and I wanted a lawyer who would explain the whole process. My biggest concerns were about my credit score getting worse and if I would be able to own anything after filing bankruptcy. Then I found Attorney Pfeiffer at Hampton Roads Legal Services. She was able to explain everything to me, so I understood the whole process about my case. After speaking with her, I felt confident and understood everything! Her prices were reasonable and easy for me to manage, the office was conveniently located, and the information she gave me was invaluable. All law firms should do better at explaining the process to clients, like Attorney Pfeiffer. I will definitely refer people to your bankruptcy firm!

  • When our income decreased, debt became overwhelming and we started looking for a bankruptcy lawyer.

    After a necessary decrease in our income, my wife and I began struggling with trying to keep up with overwhelming debt. We did not want to attempt to file a bankruptcy without an attorney. We started searching for the best bankruptcy lawyer by looking at the law firm's reviews. Finding Hampton Roads Legal Services, we felt confident that our attorney was well versed in situations like ours! We were very comfortable moving forward with the bankruptcy. Everyone at Hampton Roads Legal is warm and welcoming! We did not feel uncomfortable, or that we were treated differently because of our debt situation. The attorneys and paralegal staff are all knowledgeable and helpful. They made the bankruptcy process very streamlined and easy for us, and the bankruptcy representation was affordable considering all the help we got before, during, and after our case. Often, I do not think attorneys are sympathetic to their clients and can be very cold, but that was not the case with Hampton Roads Legal. We would absolutely recommend them because of the positive experience they gave us during a difficult time!
