    I hired Mr. McDonald after reading all the positive reviews on here. I was treated so well and they did everything they were supose to do and it was literally painless. All the reviews were true and it made my filing for bankruptcy less stressful. Don't look anywhere else. You can go here with great confidence and you will be writing a great review too. I also felt they were pretty reasonable compared to others.

    Exceptional Service

    If you're filing for a BK and you're thinking about hiring an average lawyer who advertises his services for $1,000 flat... DON'T DO IT! Based on my experience, I can guarantee they're understaffed for the volume of clients they receive. The MLG gave me exceptional service. A BK is not something anyone wants to do, but William, Sam, and Maria gave amazing service as they guided me through each step of the process. I felt comfortable and confident with their help. The end result was a complete discharge of all of my debts. My wife and I can now concentrate on having a fresh start with all the weight that has been lifted off our shoulders... I can't thank them enough.

    I was very impressed with the quality of service we received from the McDonald Legal Group. From the first meeting on they gave us the guidance we needed to file a chapter 7 and not settle for a chapter 13. The process ran like clock work. I would highly recommend anyone needing help in this area to hire this firm.

    Personable, Professional and Thorough

    Personable, professional and thorough best describe our experience with William, Maria and the entire staff of the McDonald Legal Group. The Kudzu reviews that led us to this team where spot on in describing the level of service and value they provide. We knew selecting William to guide and represent was the right choice while waiting to be called into our 341 Meeting. We were amazed at the number of couples who met their counsel and completed important paperwork literally minutes before being called before the trustee. McDonald Legal prepared us for every step of the BK process and even provided support after the discharge by recommending the right people to help us move forward with our fresh, financial start.

    Having some knowledge with Bankruptcies under the old laws, I had to use their services due to the new laws. Michael and his group are very professional, courteous, and are very knowledgeable with the BK laws. He will attend the credit meeting with you, and also meet you in case a hearing is required for a reaffirmation agreement, unlike other lawyers. They are an outstanding team and firm.

    I am 43 and never saw myself in this situation. Due to a relationship failing, I had to default on my mortgage, which was like a domino effect on my finances. The McDonald Legal Group took care of me at every turn. Crystal was great, as well as the whole staff. Now, I have a fresh start. I highly recommend them.

    The McDonald Legal Group is a group of people who are a perfect example of excellence in their profession. They gave me first class treatment from the very beginning of my experience with them. From the receptionist to William McDonald himself, the words "Class Act" describes their operation as a whole. The whole legal process was relatively painless and I thank them wholeheartedly!

I must of asked a million questions and probably some of them twice. William never made me feel like i was bothering him. He went out of his was to make sure everything was taken care of. Thanks McDonald legal group.

    I've been facing forclosure and went to see William to help me sort out my options and determine whether Bankruptcy was an option I need to prepare for. He went through my situation with me, gave me clear answers and determined that I was on the right track without bankruptcy being neccessary. If your in a similar situation I'd highly recommend you see him. The stakes are to high to just let your home go without determining the best method to handle your own particular situation. You can't do it alone and you will need legal advice. I've been stressing quite a bit over this and was able to clear that up.
