Client Testimonials

“A hard view of my circumstances forced me to realize that I needed to declare bankruptcy. I was afraid and nervous. I looked for an attorney in my area and read about Erik Clark; I went for an initial consultation. I was impressed, gained confidence, received direction, and decided to go forward using the services of Erik Clark.

The experience was quite involved, but I received well-organized and easy-to-follow directions. I felt that I had access to expert help and advice as I need it. I worked through the process and eventually went for my court appearance. It went smoothly as I felt well prepared and well represented.” – Linda
