“I recently had to file for bankruptcy, which I had been contemplating for more than a year. Once I decided to find out more information, I was referred to Alberto Montefalcon from a trusted friend. For something this important, I needed to know that the person I was going to discuss my personal financial situation with was known for their professionalism, trustworthiness, integrity, and overall service. Upon meeting Alberto, there was something about him that set my anxiety and confidence on what I was looking for in a lawyer at ease. Right off the bat I was impressed on how well he simply listened. Alberto made sure he heard my situation before coming up with the best options for me. This was also important, because there isn’t a one size fits all to determining if bankruptcy is right. Once I decided which route was best for me, and after hearing my options, Alberto handled the entire process flawlessly. It started with a caring attitude, godly character, and the right amount of communication that made the process easier to get through. It is said that the best service is often referred, and I trust that anyone who decides to work with Alberto will feel very comfortable, and satisfied with his services, legal knowledge and advice. Alberto is more than my lawyer in matters pertaining, I consider him a friend now.” – Mark D.
