"I value EVERY client, providing each one with personalized and diligent representation. I hold the firm's reputation in the highest regard and it shows through every aspect of our day-to-day procedures.  We stay focused on our clients needs through this most stressful time in their life." 

Professional Representation- I was fortunate enough to start out at one of the largest bankruptcy law firms on the west coast.  I had a terrific boss who trained me in all aspects of bankruptcy.  I was able to move directly to an open attorney position after passing the Nevada bar on my first try! I have since passed the California Bar as well as the Alabama Bar without trouble.  After being thrust straight into the courtroom, I was exhilarated by the interaction with the clients, trustees, and judges.  It made me feel great to have a part in getting honest people the fresh start that they so desperately needed!  After handling many cases, Iknew I wanted more out of my career.  Building a rapport with the clients was tough when I started meeting them for the first time at their hearings.  I decided that I wanted to be with them throughout this very emotional and trying time, which is why I decided to start my own practice.

About Birmingham Bankruptcy ATTORNEY melissa cain

Melissa and Aaron, as well as everyone at the firm, have made us feel as good as can be expected about what we knew was a bad situation.  We are now almost past the final stage and I wanted everyone to know that even people who have a financially sound business and people who are responsible about their personal and business finances, can have troubles during these times, as we did and that this Law Group helped me and my wife feel OKAY about what we had to do.  Thank you Melissa, and thank You Aaron and thank you everyone at the law firm.
I highly recommend anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation as I know these folks can help them too.

 I wanted to thank your firm, Mary and Mr. Otto for their preparedness and professionalism.  It was clear from watching the Trustee dealing with all the clients from your firm that you and your firm are well-respected in the industry.  The Trustee had all the documents he needed, which tells me how thorough your firm was in preparing for this meeting.  Mary was great at calming our nerves and making the whole process easy- it was really no big deal, as she said.  The sense of relief we felt knowing that we would be free of these debts, and the confidence of knowing we were so well represented, was enormous.  And we truly appreciate the responsiveness of you and your staff to our many questions and concerns about the process.  We will absolutely recommend your firm to anyone we know."

 "Dear Melissa. My Wife and I want to thank you for all your hard work on our behalf in the filing of our bankruptcy. We so appreciate you being in court with us. We were a little terrified not knowing what to expect and then to see the other bankruptcy cases continued for lack of information provided by other attorneys, but you always had everything in order. The actual act of having to file bankruptcy and going to court was intimidating and embarrassing to say the least but you treated us like real people with no judgment from you. That alone meant the world to my wife and I. Were not bad people, just two in the countless millions in the same boat who now have the chance to start again. Thanks again,
The Copeland's"

"I really appreciate all the help and care that Melissa provided throught the filing process. Her price was much lower than other places I researched too. Surprisingly, I had dealt with Melissa a few months prior to making my final decision to file or not at another office. I guess it was fate that I found her again, by chance, and I'm very glad I did! Thank you so much once again!"

"Prior to having retained Melissa Cain as my attorney(s), I had already seen two other local attorney(s) both of which were uncaring and made me feel uncomfortable. From the moment that I met with Melissa, I felt for sure that I had found the right attorney for me.  I was very impressed with not only her professionalism, but also with her down to earth, easy to talk to approach. Right from the start Melissa reassured me that she would always be available to answers any & all of my questions when the need arose. Believe me when I say that I have called her many times & have always had a quick & speedy response from her each time. To be able to commnicate with her was like my lifeline to sanity. I am more relax now that I have Melissa in the
driver's seat for my bankrupcty. If you want a xlnt attorney that will be
there for you when you need her and that's very capable ..... you're in good hands with Melissa... I'm sure glad that I found Melissa (& Aaron)   
 Thanks Ever So Much"

I just hope you have taken some time to stop and smell the roses!I have already referred a few people to you and will continue to do so.
