Only recently have I emerged from the bankruptcy from hell, due to numerous circumstances beyond my control, but my attorney Dorothy Bartholomew, my case worker Jada Wood and the very competent staff at her law office, made it finally happen. Without my friend and financial partner, Peter, who passed away in 2012, I really struggled to meet my obligations to the court and when the trustee filed notice to sell my home out from under me during a Chapter 13 to 7 conversion with only months to go on my plan, I thought I was going to lose everything. But Dorothy took all the correct steps to protect my rights and my hard-earned equity.Dorothy really cares about her clients and she is knowledgeable on how to use different aspects of the law to protect …
Dorothy has been working with me on my complicated case for several years and has been a wonderful advocate. You will find her professional, kind and knowledgeable. Her office staff is super nice and well informed. She is a great choice for when you are going through a difficult process and I cannot recommend her highly enough. The office is a welcoming environment and if you are lucky you might get some loves from her sweet puppy:)
Words cannot even begin to describe the feeling when you enter the Law Offices of Dorothy Bartholomew. You are welcomed with friendly smiles and a warm environment. I am more than happy with my experience of filing bankruptcy, even if it was the last thing that I wanted to do. I never felt pressured or pushed into making any decisions and they were very quick to respond to the millions of questions that I had. Would definitely recommend! Thank you again ladies!
Dorothy and her staff were excellent! I had the best experience working with them and would highly recommend working with Dorothy. Everyone treated me with dignity and professionalism and the rates were very reasonable. They did an exceptional job and they were always happy, smiling and helpful. Even if Dorothy costs a little bit more, it's worth every penny! My husband hired a different attorney about a year sooner in Tacoma, and it was a nightmare working with them! They were unorganized, always an hour or two behind and always confused not knowing what was happening next. Not at Dorothy's office! They run a well oiled machine and work awesome together. Go see Dorothy...you won't be disappointed!
In searching for bankruptcy services in the Puget Sound area I was met with great disappointment. The attorneys I met with were not personable, not knowledgeable (or did not share their knowledge), and foremost - overpriced!
Finally, I was referred to Dorothy and was more than relieved after our first meeting. She was eager to assist, it was clear that she truly wanted to help. Not only is she knowledgeable but she broke every single step down to me so that I fully understood what I was getting myself into.
She reassured me that "WE" would get through this.
She made my nightmare seem painless. I was able to reach her effortlessly, by phone or e-mail; if I had a question - she had the answer immediately.
She was my defensive-line against creditors and their harassment. Her attitude is like that of a big sister; patient/protective/guiding. She was super comfortable to work with.
Her staff is absolutely the best in the business. Very polite, helpful and cater to your needs. If you have kids, they will keep them entertained while you are meeting with Dorothy. They really treat you like you are a guest in their home!
Best of all - she was the most affordable in town. I can't express how grateful I am to have had her assistance and guidance throughout this time.
If you are thinking about bankruptcy, please call Dorothy - With her and her staff in your corner you will see that it is not as scary as you think it will be.
The nicest people you will ever meet
ive been looking for an attorney for a while due to my situation needing to file chapter 7. I wasn't having any look and was ready to give up. Then i spoke to my coworker about my situation and she the recommended Dorothy Bartholomew. I wasn't that excited being that ive gotten no where with all the other attorneys but i made the call to her anyways. Just the phone call alone gave me hope and i made an appointment .I was so excited i called everyone to tell them the good new. The appointment went really good. They were beyond helpful and explained everything and let me know i was doing the right thing due to my situation. Dorothy and her staff are the best. They all treat you like family and works really fast. It took 1.5 weeks for my appointment and to file. Talk about fast. If anyone is looking to file BK please please please so see Dorothy. I promise you'll have no regrets.
