What Our Clients Say

5 Stars
Smooth And Painless Process
Filed bankruptcy for the first time. Bruce and Shelley explained the process and walked me through everything. The whole process was smooth and quick. This law firm saved me. Carole the receptionist always greeted me with a warm smile. It was clear they cared about me as a person and not just as a client. You will be in good hands if you hire them.

Bruce represented me in a complex commercial litigation. From the initial consultation to defending and winning our appeal he was always knowledgeable, honest and returned my calls and emails the same day. He knows his stuff. I highly recommend Levitt and Slafkes.
