“I Can’t Recommend Michael Highly Enough” – Posted by Mike L., a Chapter 13 Client:

I can’t recommend Michael highly enough. He is very thorough, considerate and easy to talk to. He addressed any concerns or questions I had quickly and efficiently. After having a disastrous experience with an unethical divorce attorney, I was somewhat apprehensive about dealing with another attorney, but Michael was a welcome change. It’s always unfortunate when you need the services of a bankruptcy attorney, but at least make sure you have someone reliable and ethical like Michael on your side.

“Kind and Professional” – Posted by Maria N., a Chapter 7 Client:

I was swimming in debt since college but managed to keep my credit and credit score high up until I got laid off from my job. Bankruptcy never crossed my mind; I was struggling to pay the bare minimum payments with my unemployment up until it was going to terminate …. With a family and new baby I finally needed help or options and I am so blessed to have called Mike. I am glad he is my attorney and I am so thankful. Mike is a kind and professional attorney. When looking for an attorney you definitely need to find one that you feel comfortable with discussing sensitive financial matters with as well as guidance and he showed that. And was also very kind.

“Absolutely Wonderful to Work With” – Posted by David and Rebecca S., Chapter 7 Clients:

Mike was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was very easy to talk to which made it easy to ask questions or voice concerns about what would happen next. He was prompt, thorough and direct with each of our questions and concerns. Mike kept us informed and prepared during every step of the process. There were no surprises waiting for us. He managed to make the whole thing less scary and stressful than it could have been. This is the first time we’ve had to work with an attorney and we are so glad to have found Mike.

“Very helpful” – Posted by M Breeden, a Chapter 7 client:

Lara was very helpful when we needed legal advice regarding a bankruptcy. She was prompt each time we called to return our calls and was very knowledgeable on all of the questions we asked. Lara is very confident in what she does and compassionate about the needs of others. She made our experience much less stressful than I expected and was very respectful towards us regardless of the situation we were dealing with. I would highly recommend her and appreciated her help in every way.

“Experienced and Compassionate” – Posted by Mike, a Bankruptcy client:

After meeting with a handful of lawyers to discuss filing for bankruptcy who really didn’t seem to care about my personal situation, I found Lara Gardner. From the first initial talk on the phone to the in-person meeting she was friendly, compassionate and honest with me on all my options. She answered all my questions and never once made me feel like a piece of trash like other attorneys I spoke with prior. After having Lara handle my Chapter 7 bankruptcy I can honestly say she has a wealth of knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend her if you are considering filing for bankruptcy.

“So lucky to have found this lawyer” – Posted by David, a Bankruptcy client:

Lara has been a huge help for our family. On three different occasions we have gone to Lara for legal help and each time she saved the day by giving us all the information we needed to solve our problems. She is efficient, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and highly personable. She literally saved us a fortune. We have referred other family members to Ms. Gardner and they have also been similarly happy with her work.

“Fantastic experience!” – Posted by Kimber, a Chapter 7 client:

Lara did a wonderful job of putting my mind at ease with filing my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. If you’re unsure right now about filing for Bankruptcy, I strongly recommend talking with her about your options as you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised.

Posted by Bryce, a Chapter 7 client:

Lara Gardner went above and beyond to help me through what was one of the most difficult times of my life. Unfortunately I’ve had cause to deal with many attorneys over the last year. Lara was the only one that I felt truly had my best interests in mind and showed compassion toward my situation. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Posted by Jeremy, a Chapter 7 client:

I used Lara to help me file chapter 7 bankruptcy. I had seen another attorney, but felt like he didn’t explain things very well to me. Lara explained things clearly and took the time to answer all of my questions. She obviously had knowledge and expertise about the subject. Lara returned all my phone calls quickly and was available to help when I needed it. I was feeling pretty guilty and awful about having to file bankruptcy. With compassion and understanding, Lara helped me see where I could make changes, but also how the system contributed to my financial problems. She also handled my case from beginning to end–unlike the other lawyer I met whose paralegal would be doing most of the work. Lara was worth every penny I spent to file bankruptcy. My life is getting back on track and I sincerely thank her for helping me with this. I highly recommend Columbia River Law Group. Call them first if you are considering bankruptcy.
