Testimonials

"After a disappointing meeting with a well know bankruptcy law firm that was more interested in having me sign on with them, I was fortunate enough to find Andrew Gore to represent me in my bankruptcy case. From my initial consultation call, I found him very patient and pleasant to work with. He did not pressure me to have him represent me. Instead he took the time to answer all the questions and concerns I had regarding the bankruptcy…Overall, I would recommend Andrew Gore to any one who is looking for a bankruptcy attorney that is patient, cordial, thorough, and willing to work to meet your needs, not to mention affordable."
