"Very professional and personable. Would highly recommend to anyone needing legal services."

I was a weepy mess when I first met with Mr. Yaldou, feeling quite overwhelmed, helpless and embarrassed at the thought of having to file for bankruptcy.
"Mr. Yaldou was comforting and reassuring, taking me under his wing much like a "big brother". He, Nick Chambers, Lisa Segur, and his entire legal staff, were never too busy to answer my questions and respond to my emails throughout the entire (successful) bankruptcy process. Everyone was absolutely wonderful!!! If you're looking for a knowledgeable, top-notch legal team, then I highly recommend Yaldou Law."
"Did great job on my case was very helpful and knowledgeable he knew what he was doing call back at two maybe three times and still very helpful after the case was finished."
Bryan is an excellent attorney!
"He has an extremely, professional, knowledgable manner and yet is kind and understanding. He puts you immediately at ease and you feel free to talk to him about all the deepest and most embarrassing things without feeling like he is judging you, in fact that he understands and empathizes with you. He is very through and explains every step of the process and what to expect - both good and possible bad which I really liked because I don't like a rosy picture painted for me when a potentially bad situation might arise. I would highly recommend him...in fact - do yourself a favor and just go straight to him and forget shopping around as you won't find a better champion than Bryan! By the way, I had never met Bryan, just saw his sign and decided to stop - the best decision I ever made!"
Bryan is so friendly and always available to answer any questions you may have.
"My case was handled efficiently and with ease. I appreciated always being informed and knowing what the next step would be. Overall, I’d absolutely recommend him to anyone in search of a quality attorney."
