I gave Bill Balena a call one morning to ask a few questions about my previous bankruptcy case, a case in which he was not even my lawyer. To my surprise he returned my phone call within an hour (not very common with other lawyers I have dealt with in the past). Right away Bill asked me how he could help. I spoke to him on the phone for almost an hour asking question after question and he gave me very informative answers to each and every question I asked. Not one time did he try to rush me off the phone, (I wasn’t even paying him for his time) or even slightly seem like he didn’t want to be helping me with my so called “problem”. He knew what he was talking about, knew his facts, and was very professional. Just from our conversation over the phone I can tell that Bill Balena is great at what he does! I felt completely comfortable telling him my situation and asking any question that I had. After I couldn’t think of anything else to pick his brain about he even told me (now remember I have not retained him as my lawyer nor am I paying him for his time) that I could call him with any other question that I had and he would help me out in any way he could. Now THAT is a great lawyer!!! If and when there ever comes a time that I am in need of a lawyer Bill Balena is the first on my list. I would recommend his services to anyone that I know.
-Thanks Bill for all of your help. You made my husband and I extremely happy with all of the information you gave me. You put both of our minds at ease. I am truly grateful for the time you took to help me out! Good deeds don’t go unnoticed. Thanks again for all your help.
(Actually there were two calls; one was for 16 minutes, and the other was for 11 minutes. –Bill Balena)

After years of trying to pay all my debts and not getting anywhere, and finding myself in a hopeless situation, I found a friend. I say a friend, because Attorney Bill treated me no less than someone who knew I had an option that would give me my life back. That’s a friend. Someone who really cares and is with you when you need them with solid, good advice, iced with integrity, honesty and professionalism. If you feel hopeless, you don’t have to. Believe me, you just need to call a friend, Attorney Bill Balena.

I want to start off thanking you for taking the time to see me today. I came into your office thinking I was in deep trouble. And I left knowing it wasn’t as bad as it seemed, more knowledgeable, and I have options. What I didn’t expect from a LAWYER was that you wouldn’t take my money because I didn’t NEED your services at the present time. Any other lawyer I know of would have done what I wanted, and agreed with me for those billable hours. What a great surprise. And you didn’t rush me out the door as you personally talked to me, and I appreciate that. I will think of you if anybody asks if I know a good attorney who is a decent person, and pass your name on. Again thank you and your assistant for your time and trouble. Great website.

I was in a desperate situation and very scared and completely lost on what to do given my situation. Bill made everything simple and clear. He was funny, kind and quick. I wish everyone was as easy and enjoyable to work with.

Attorney Balena and his firm are an exceptional group. From day one attorney Balena and his staff treated me as a valued client; he was honest and supportive throughout the process. Many attorneys show support and interest in a new client’s case in the early stages, but eventually they lose focus and stop fighting for you! This was not the case with attorney Balena and his firm! Not once did I feel like I mattered less than I did the day that I met him. He fought for me and my family, and treated us with respect! He is a wonderful man!
Thank you Bill for all your work that you put into my case. You always did exactly what you said you would do. I am so glad I found your website and called. Most other places send legal assistants to do the lawyers work, but you were always present from the beginning. Whomever chooses you as their lawyer is making a decision they won’t regret! Thanks again for making a hard situation much easier!!

I just wanted to take a moment and make sure you know how impressed I have been with your services. Your attention to every detail and timely follow-up made the entire bankruptcy process very comfortable. If anyone is having problems and considering filing for bankruptcy, I highly recommend Mr. Balena to guide you through the process with his high level of professionalism and knowledge
