"Ms. Lawson took care of everything, gave us the scenarios of which Chapter I should file. I chose a Chapter, and Ms. Lawson got all the T's and I's in order. Smooth sailing."

"I hired Jan to handle my BK. She is the most intelligent, hardworking, dedicated to duty attorney around.
I would highly recommend her services. Responds to e-mails quickly. Jan is very abrasive, but that is the type of person you want to have in your corner. If you want your case done right, give Jan a call."
Ernest
