this is a very difficult subject to speak about. i'm a law enforcement officer. i can't thank you enough your team (alfredo, orlando and mr wu)on how professional your law firm is. i went to a different firm before, they have nothing on you in terms of professionals and the time that is given to us as clients and you listen. i can't tell you enough how your firm was their when you need them and you can actually talk to a live person. i won't hesitate to refer your firm when someone in need of legal

I came to Ledford and Wu after meeting with several bankruptcy attorneys. I have been trying to get a loan modification for months and was strung along until my mortgage company scheduled a date for my house to be sold. I met with several attorneys who only seemed interested in getting money from me, not helping me. The lawyer I met with at L&W took the time to listen, explained my options in the bankruptcy process. I appreciate that level of attention and would recommend these guys to anyone.

I was able to meet with an attorney on weekends and evenings which was very convenient since I work full-time. Every time I called their law firm I spoke with an attorney not a paralegal. They made the difficult process easier by communicating each step with me....I never felt rushed when meeting with an attorney.
