"No one wants to file bankruptcy in their lives, but when life hit hard I had no other choice. Gillespie and Murphy law firm help out by making the process painless as can be. My case was a tricky situation and so many variables, and I thought it was way to complicated. Not for Mrs. Parker and her Father, it was like nothing could phase them. The whole staff was kind and always ready to help. Having a law firm that based their practice off of Christ first was one of the main reasons I knew I was in good hands. Only bad thing about the whole thing was having to file, but glad I did because it was a fresh start to life, and also met a lot great people. If I could give more than 5 starts I would do so."

"I'm a difficult person, very straight forward. Plain and simple. Picky but I try to be open and honest with everyone even if it rattles a few chains. Well when I did have a few problems when dealing with the New Bern office Mr. Murphy personally contacted me and got to the bottom of the issue. He viewed my complaints as constructive criticism and I think We both learned something through our interaction with one another. I came away with a very clear understanding of how their firm runs. I was very impressed with how patient he was with me and his determination to make it right. I totally recommend this law firm. They strive to be the best and you'll be well taken care of. I'm glad I trusted them to handle my case. You will not be disappointed."
