    He listened to all of my questions and concerns. He was able to give me excellent advice, and after consideration, I decided I didn't need his help for that particular situation. However, I do want to make my will, so I will be signing up for legal benefits again through work and will go to him to do my will.

    DO NOT USE THIS FIRM!!! I used Mr. Mettler for bankruptcy and the miscommunication, mishandling of my case caused it be dismissed. I am filing a complaing with the Better Business Bureau. I paid $1500 and when it came time for my 341 meeting, they mailed my paperwork for me to review to the wrong address. I have never filed bankruptcy before and didn't know the necessary steps that needed to be taken. That's what I paid him for. I didn't know the trustee needed to paperwork 7 days before the meeting. And he should made sure all paperwork was together before he filed instead of having me come in the 11th hour (one day before 341 hearing). I didn't have my social security card and he said the IRS office at the federal building would give me an abstract of my last years tax return, I went there the morning of my hearing and was told they no longer did that for a year! Mr. Mettler completely screwed up my case and is refusing to fix it or refund my money.

    The front desk lady seemed very brusque with certain clients, but they seemed to be ones she had billing issues with, and I'm sure that requires some toughness on her part. But that made me feel a bit ill at ease. Once I got in with my attorney, though, I felt very comfortable, and felt that I had most of his attention.
