I’ll finally be able to sleep after 15 years of stress. Right when I thought it couldn’t get any worse it did. My debt skyrocketed to a point of no return. One Creditor decided to add more interest to the thousands of dollars that I already couldn’t pay. I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown. I was buried so deep and felt like I was suffocating. I didn’t know where to turn or what to do. So thankful, my Son recommended Mr. Travis Gagnier. I was so nervous going to meet with him. I thought maybe he would be judgmental or mean because I couldn’t pay my bills. But NO, it was the absolute opposite. He was nonjudgmental, friendly, respectful, professional and a really nice gentleman. He handled everything that my husband and I needed done, very quickly. If you’re wondering if you should use this Law Firm the answer is YES! Our Paralegal Jennifer was the best also. She’ll always answer your emails back right away. If you need to talk to her, she’s available to help you through any problems. Really wish I could give more than 5 Stars. I’m just so thankful! These guys are the best!!!
Rock solid service and actual advice to help out
I had been trying in vain to pay off creditors for years and only kept slipping further in debt. I contacted Travis and was pretty suspicious of the whole process. His communication was great and his staff have been fantastic about getting back to me when I have questions. He gave me advice that proved to be very helpful and I am in my home stretch on a Chapter 13. I feel like I am getting my life back. It's not easy, but it is worth it.
Thank you for always responding even on the weekends to my emails. Thank you for getting me back on track with my creditors. This is the best BK team ever. They truly work and respect their customers.
You get what you pay for...
Travis & his staff took me through my Chapter 13 - which took just over 4 years to complete, and recently he took my girlfriend through the Chapter 7 process. I also retained him to handled my Will and Durable Power of Attorney. In one particular case, Travis was able to negotiate a settlement that was around 30% of the amount I owed. Travis is always on time to all court & hearing dates. Options were always clearly explained, and his advice always made sense. Travis was able to explain the law in a way that makes sense, and give real world examples.
