Why Our Clients Recommend You Choose Slayton Law
We felt deeply relieved and empowered by the options Mr. Slayton came up with.
I met with Mr. Slayton 2 times about debt collection issues and Bankruptcy options for myself and one of my daughters. In the course of the FREE consultation with Mr. Slayton, we received an honest professional guidance in a courteous manner: we felt deeply relieved and empowered by the options Mr. Slayton came up with. There was no pressure at all, just excellent and clear legal advice. Consequently, we were able to make the right decision and get out of legal troubles in a short time. Working with Mr. Slayton and his staff was more than a positive experience. It was reassuring and comfortable. Thank you.
He cares about the well-being of his clients.
Mr. Slayton is highly competent and is a true expert in bankruptcy. He cares about the well-being of his clients and makes the entire process easy. I am an attorney and I considered trying to file my own bankruptcy; I am so glad that I didn’t. The (extremely reasonable) fee charged by Mr. Slayton was well worth it. He kept me informed, anticipated future contingencies, and his manner put me completely at ease. My case went much more quickly than I thought it would, and being represented by Mr. Slayton removed almost all the stress involved in the process. Highly recommend.
Simply the best bankruptcy attorney in our area.
My husband and I consulted with multiple attorneys and could not find somebody that we felt like we could trust. The information we were given was vague at best. Mr. Slayton impressed us so much we hired him during our initial consultation. He has proven to be informative, professional, reliable and goes the extra mile without hesitation to get the job done. I would recommend him to anyone. Simply the best bankruptcy attorney in our area.
Very pleased with the ease and smoothness of the process.
We we’re very pleased with the ease and smoothness of the the process from are first meeting thru to the hearing. If you’re not sure if bankruptcy is right for you Mr. Slayton is very helpful with any questions. His staff was very kind and helpful as well. We are very thankful and definitely very happy to have had the Slayton law firm through our bankruptcy.
He got back my money that had been taken in garnishments!
I did not go to Mr. Slayton with the intent to file bankruptcy. I just wanted help with stopping a garnishment. Mr. Slayton took his time with me going over all of my medical bills vs. my net income and it turned out that filing chapter 7 was the best move I could have made. AND he got back my money that had been taken in garnishments! It was unbelievably fast and he made it so easy! I’d recommend Slayton Law to ANYONE!
Highly recommend...even for just a consultation if struggling to get your life back on track.
Light at the end of a struggling tunnel and peace of mind was offered through Slayton Law. Marshall was nice and personable, and to the point when the time came. The process was quick and painless, and the results were amazing. Highly recommend Slayton Law, even for just a consultation if struggling to get your life back on track.
Love that he can set up a payment plan.
Very personable and easy to talk to. Answered all and any questions I had. Love that he can set up a payment plan as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to file.
Answered any and every question I had.
I highly recommend Mr. Marshall Slayton if you’re facing bankruptcy. He’s very timely, efficient, thorough, and knowledgeable. He helped me through my bankruptcy, explained and answered any and every questions I had, and made this process of bankruptcy for me very easy and comfortable transition of not having to worry about my financial problems. If anyone ever considers the idea of filing for bankruptcy, I highly, highly recommend Mr. Slayton, Thank you.
Took the time to explain things when I could not understand the legal terminology.
Mr. Slayton was a very kind and compassionate person to help me through my most difficult time. He took the time to explain things to me when I could not understand the legal terminology. I am very grateful to have found him.
Numerous medical bills.
I am writing this review because I would like to highly recommend Marshall Slayton if you are considering bankruptcy. Unfortunately, as a result of some tragic events in my family and numerous medical bills, I found myself in this situation. Bankruptcy is a serious matter and there are many different options. Mr. Slayton was extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process! At one point, I wasn’t sure about what chapter I should file because of a change in circumstances. He was more than willing to go over all the pros and cons of both. I feel confident now that I made the right choice with my future in mind. Thank you, Mr. Slayton and staff! You’re the best.
We met with a couple different lawyers.
We met with a couple different lawyers (all recommended by other lawyers) to better understand our options for resolving our financial troubles. With most, it felt like we were an imposition on their time. (Admittedly, it was a free consult). We never felt that way during multiple meetings with Marshall. His guidance through the whole process was first rate!
If you need help, understanding, and professionalism.
After much contemplation, my husband and I decided that we needed help to get our financial life back on track. We had contacted another attorney regarding bankruptcy about a year ago, and they were not helpful at all. We were discouraged, once again, until a friend suggested we contact Mr. Slayton about the prospect of filing bankruptcy. He quickly responded to a meeting with us, and from that first meeting, has made us feel like there is hope after all. He explained the process in depth, but not in terms we couldn’t understand. He has kept un informed of all the steps and information needed to complete the process. If you need the same kind of help, understanding, and professionalism, we would highly recommend seeking Mr. Slayton’s guidance immediately.
Every aspect of the process was so easy, thanks to Mr. Slayton's knowledge.
Mr. Slayton made the bankruptcy process a piece of cake! My husband and I have been dreading going through the process, and had talked to a couple different lawyers over the past seven years, and decided not to go through with it, then it came down to we had no choice. We saved some money, and looked through the phone book for a bankruptcy lawyer who was close to us. We found Mr. Slayton, and made an appointment. We had our consult, paid him some money down, and started the process. We could tell just by talking to Mr. Slayton, that he knew his stuff. We were right, he told us to do this, this, and this, we did, and everything just fell into place, like a paint by numbers project. Every aspect of the process was so easy, thanks to Mr. Slayton’s knowledge. We just did what he told us to do, even down to going to court, which was the most nerve racking part for us, courts tend to stress us out, just because it is so official, and you don’t want to make a mistake. The court process was also a totally stressless experience, thanks to Mr. Slayton! He covered every detail of the process, even down to sending us letters to submit to the three credit reporting agencies, so they could update our credit reports. Thank you so much for making the process so easy to get through, we could not be more pleased with our result! God bless!!
