  • Reviews
    "I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone considering bankruptcy. We hired attorney Richard Shea and he was incredibly helpful and informative during the entire process. His staff was always nice, he answered our questions without judgment, returned calls and emails promptly, and was very knowledgeable about our options. We were very overwhelmed when we started this process, but Richard Shea made it easy. If bankruptcy might be in your future, I would absolutely let this law firm help you through it." - Marianne Smith "Richard Shea is the best! They give sound advice, and create the best plan for your circumstances! Very professional and personable! Highly recommend!" - Tammy Popp "I highly recommend selecting Sawin Shea LLC to assist you with re-organizing your challenging financial matters. Whether you're filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, they will treat you fairly and with respect and dignity. Working with Mr. Shea specifically has been great. From the first visit, he helped me conclude the best decision for my financial situation and has worked consistently alongside me for 3 years to be sure I achieved the set goals. I recently made my last Chapter 13 trustee payment and Mr. Shea and his team celebrated with me. I felt like a part of the family. Going through financial challenges and hurdles is tough. It's embarrassing and no fun to experience. But the Sawin Shea LLC team truly provided the utmost professional services and ultimately helped me to get back on track. If you are in need of assistance, don't hesitate to phone them, you won't be disappointed. I was not paid or incentivized in anyway to write this review. I'm a true believer in giving kudos and suggesting services where it's due. These guys are the best!" - V M
