Seattle Bankruptcy Attorney Reviews

“I wish I could give Richard 10 stars. He was always there to answer all my questions, walked me through the process and took my case when I had less then 24 hours to get all documents complete and filed. He is someone I would gladly and proudly refer my friends to, if they ever need help. He treats you as if you are his only client… He is a champ who understands that when people come to him they are scared, confused and he takes his time to explain all your options and suggest which one he feels would work best for you. Thanks again Richard for being there for me you were a GOD send!”
~ Janis A.
“We hired Richard on behalf of a client of ours, a CEO, with a complex and challenging financial situation. The CEO himself added to the difficulty bringing a lack of knowledge, continual questions, and a waffling inability to stay the course. At every juncture Richard answered all questions with the patience of Job and in a clear, supportive, direct and expert manner. Most importantly, Richard achieved a final deal that is extraordinary and beyond expectations. Richard Symmes is the King Kong of Bankruptcy and Debt Settlement attorney’s. And a heck of guy.”
~ David F.
“If there were a 10 star rating, I’d give Richard an 11. This gentleman is the consummate professional, always going above and beyond what I’ve ever experienced with any attorney. He’s extremely knowledgeable of his craft, he’s very timely in responses, kind, and courteous. I don’t want to say I had a million questions, repeatedly, over, and over, but I did, and Richard stayed with me, step for step, tireless, and on point. I can’t recommend him highly enough. If you have any bankruptcy related issues, this is THE attorney. Period.”
~ Steve R.
“Richard is amazing. I was mortified and so depressed when I had to file for bankruptcy. He made the process very easy, if I knew how painless it would be I wouldn’t have been so worried. If you’re going to use Richard, I can tell you, you can calm down right now, it’s going to be okay. He was VERY available and answered every dumb question I had (I had a lot!!) quickly. I highly recommend him. For an unrelated case I met a lot of different lawyers and the more I met the more obvious it was that Richard was a lot more sensible, and organized than most lawyers. He’s absolutely the attorney you should use.”
~ Adriana F.
“Richard Symmes is an excellent attorney. He made my Chapter 7 bankruptcy go best case scenario. He made the process very easy. I think my favorite thing Richard does is communicates very easily, He usually answers the phone, if not calls back very quickly. He responds to emails most of the time within minutes. Probably the quickest email responder that I’ve ever experienced with anyone. I even texted him a few times and again, he responded very quickly and was ok with communicating via text. I highly recommend Richard if you are having financial difficulty and are looking for a bankruptcy attorney. I can’t imagine getting better service from anyone else. I can’t think of a way anyone could be better than Richard. I found Richard by reading his excellent reviews. I would advise others to do the same and contact Richard for assistance. Thank you Richard for all of your help!!!”
~ Jon W.
“Richard is not only a great attorney but he is a kind person. I had so many questions and he always responded the same day if he wasn’t able to answer the phone. He never acted like any of my questions were stupid, which looking back, I know they were, haha! He helped my husband and I during a very confusing and stressful time in our lives. We have a new baby and now we also have a new start in life. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us!”
~ Christy B.
“Mr. Symmes answered every call and email quickly and concisely. He was incredibly patient with my poor direction following, stupid questions, and lost email attachments. Had I been on top of my end’s responsibilities the whole process would have been lickity-split. Even though I dragged the process out over 3 months he was always professional, prompt and accommodating. Many thanks!”
~ Alison C.
“Richard has been a great attorney as he’s led me through the Chapter 7 process. Any questions I’ve had he’s responded right away and he has helped me feel more comfortable with something that can be a pretty daunting process when you make the decision to file. I would recommend Rich to anyone that is considering filing. He will answer all your questions and get the job done right and fast.”
~ Aaron L.
“Richard has been very responsive, informative and most of all calming. Going through a bankruptcy is a tough one to swallow, and a major hit on anyone’s pride. Through the process, I have asked Richard several questions and he replies immediately with guidance, honesty and tells you exactly what you need and can expect. I would recommend anyone to Richard Symmes. The process isn’t over yet, but I am confident I am represented by a top notch attorney. Thank you, Richard!”
~ Stacey N.
“FANTASTIC legal service! We had the opportunity to work with Richard Symmes, esq. on a legal matter and he was extremely responsive, a good communicator, and most importantly he was very easy to deal with all throughout our relationship. We were under a tight deadline to file our documents before the end of the calendar year and Mr. Symmes worked diligently to get everything completed and filed well before the deadline. Throughout our email and Vmail exchanges he was responsive and kept us up-to-date while making sure that all of our questions were answered in a timely manner. He took complicated legal questions and broke things down for us to understand during our work together. His office was easy to reach and we met with Richard in person a few times in addition to the numerous exchanges we had via email and phone calls. If the need ever arose, we would definitely work with Richard again and highly recommend him to anyone who requires excellent service in an attorney.”
~ Carter W.
“My wife and I met Richard through a work colleague of my wife. I was very skeptical at first because I have trust issues when people ask for my money even though he’s an attorney. My wife believed in him and that was enough for me. The one thing that really sticks out for me about Richard is how he explained everything before it happened and answered any doubts I had after. The one doubt I really had was, how really easy it was going to be and how fast it happened. I appreciate how he simplified word for word how everything was going to happen. We filed chapter seven and let me tell you it was very scary at first but I’m very glad it’s over and that we used Richard Symmes as our attorney. Do I recommend him, heck yes. Would we use him again; well let’s hope we won’t have to but of course WE would if that were the case.
~ Joe & Nina.
“Highly Recommended! Bright, effective lawyer and superb, timely client communications. I was at my wits’ end trying for two years to negotiate payback on two private student loans from a notoriously difficult-to-deal-with lender. I found Richard, and he explained the odds (very low) of getting them to negotiate, and why this was so. I believed the risk was worth taking. He delivered! Richard did the impossible; he got to the ‘right’ people right away, which I was never able to do on my own. He negotiated interest-rate reduction and set up a payment plan, involving me in every decision along the way. He did this in one day and further negotiations took a couple more days. I honestly felt like I was his only client–that’s how personal and timely he is. I have confidence and regard for him, as I am certain you will also. Call him in any of his practice areas–You will be pleased!”
~ Celine F.
“I decided to shop around for an attorney and found Symmes Law Group after initially planning to enter into an agreement with a different attorney. I read some of the reviews on Symmes Law Group and decided to call. I was impressed that Richard Symmes answered the my call personally and proceeded to answer a number of questions I had concerning the specifics of my situation. I was very pleasantly surprised that he patiently and thoughtfully answered every question that I had, including billing rate questions, without requiring me to pay any money. At the conclusion of my phone consultation with Mr. Symmes, I knew I would be hiring Symmes Law Group and scheduled a date to meet with him. It was a 2 month process for Mr. Symmes to help me through my legal situation and I was very impressed with his representation from start to finish. He was very professional, knowledgeable and attentive and I felt his fee was very reasonable and well deserved. The attorney I was considering hiring before Symmes Law Group would have been 2 to 2.5 times more expensive. With Symmes Law Group, you are clearly and completely informed of the services you will receive and how much the cost will be. Best of all, Symmes Law Group does what it says it is going to do. I am pleased to say that I am a very satisfied client.”
~ Earl Z.
“Where do we begin..my wife & I were in dire straits. I actually reached out to Richard a year ago and he answered all of my questions-no pressure, no sales tactics to follow up. THAT”S why I called him back. I read the reviews fro m his past clients it just made sense. In fact when we left his office, as soon as we pulled up to our home a processor was there to serve us with a $10,000 bill AND the next day PSE was there to cut off our lights, $1,800! (I was laid off) We were able to include all of it and we we’re able to finally get a good nights rest. He didn’t make us feel like we we are unworthy, like we didn’t matter, like all he wanted was our money. If you’re looking or have been looking take it from us, THIS is the firm you need for your family.
~ Derrick L.
“I had a complicated legal situation related to past judgement and was looking for a good BK attorney. Symmes Law Group was one of the top three best reviewed offices in Seattle, but Richard was the only one who took the time to review in detail my paperwork and to give me his honest professional opinion even BEFORE I hired him. Afterwards I was in a hurry to file ASAP and he made a great effort to accommodate my needs working late evenings and even answering my calls on a weekend. Trust me, there are very, very few lawyers who’d do this ever! Richard Symmes professional knowledge, attention to detail and above all his dedication to his clients is remarkable! One thing I can say for sure, that if I (or family member) ever need legal help again (which I hope I won’t) Richard Symmes will be my first and only choice! I only wish there were more attorneys like him.”
~ Uri K.
“My husband and I were referred to Richard by a coworker and had no inkling of the bankruptcy process, just that we needed help! Richard was very welcoming and easy to talk to. He gave us confidence that our lives could become less stressful and debt free and explained the process in simplistic terms. He was very patient with us and always responded immediately to any questions we had. He is extremely knowledge about the bankruptcy process and once we got all of our end of the documentation process completed and submitted to him, he had it filed with the court almost immediately! I would recommend Richard Symmes any day of the week; he is professional, knowledgeable, consistent, honest and on top of his game! Thank You Richard Symmes!!”
~ Nina P.
“Richard is a stand up guy, who really helped in a family crisis in a foreclosure issue, he literally helped save the day in the eleventh hour, the SAME day I called him!. He is a quick and clear communicator. He worked late in to the evening to help out my family and we cannot thank him enough! Richard is clearly very knowledgeable about his specialty, knew exactly how to help, and we are so thankful. I highly recommend him!
~ Alanna M.
“Richard is an excellent communicator! He was always quick to respond to my questions even in his off hours. His website alone is a treasure trove of well thought out information. His instruction through out the process is very easy to follow and he is always there if needed. I highly recommend Richard!”
~ Michael H.
“Mr. Symmes is kind and patient as we had a lot of questions and anxiety. Most of all, he’s efficient. What we thought would be a huge ordeal turned out to be very manageable with his help. We couldn’t have done it without him. I would recommend him to any and all, including my family and friends. Thank you Mr. Symmes!”
~ Mike O.
“This week I reached out to Symmes Law Group(was consulted) and I was impressed with their responsiveness! They also thoroughly answered all my questions and brought information to my attention that I have been over looking for years. I would recommend my family and friends to the Symmes Law Group if they are in need of legal assistance in the areas of credit repair, bankruptcy and/or debt settlements.”
~ Trey M.
“We contacted Richard to assist us with our financial issues and he was so helpful and eased our minds regarding filing for bankruptcy. He was more than helpful and was very empathic to our situation. Richard knew we were having troubles deciding what to do and he went the extra mile to contact a trustee that he knew to get some ball park answers for us. We would recommend Richard to anyone in the same situation as we were in.”
~ Sue and Chuck
“Richard helped my son and I with his bankruptcy filing. He was always quick to answer every phone call and email and even later into the evening, which was a pleasant surprise to us. My son wanted to file as quickly as possible before his wedding so his new wife would not have to bear the weight of the bankruptcy with him. Even though we gave him a very short timeline, Richard took very quick action to get the papers filed immediately before the wedding. We are very pleased with his services.”
~ Melissa A.
“Richard Symmes has impressed me with his uniformity to answer questions in a methodical and quick manner! Based on Richard Symmes willingness to respond to questions in a timely manner. I award him with “good credit” (A little sense of humor. Get it, “Good Credit”) for defining good customer service! I believe I wrote him (Via email) at 10pm–not expecting a response back-and he responded! WOW! Bravo so far!”
~ Curt T.
“I had a hard time finding a lawyer to help me settle some school loan debts. I don’t even know how I stumbled upon Richard Symmes but I saw all the great reviews so I decided to give him a call. He was really patient as I explained him my situation and answered all my questions. He was able to resolve all my issues and obtained a great settlement and even assisted us in paying off the loan before the deadline. I have 100% trust in Richard Symmes and will definitely use him again in the future as well as refer families & friends to his service if they are looking for someone honest & trustworthy to deal with their debts. Check out the other great reviews, he has helped a lot of people in bad situations and he will help you too. He’s almost like a superhero! 🙂 ”
~ Tina H.

After talking to a few attorneys I never got a comfortable feeling so I looked around some more to see if I can find anyone to help me.

I would recommend him to anybody a very professional lawyer that cares.”
~ Brian C.
“The Symmes Law Group and especially Richard Symmes were wonderful in helping my wife and I with our Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. Honestly I was stressed about the whole process, and Richard was a guide step by step. I must say our case took time with moving for employment, and dealing with some family issues. Richard was more than patient and always responded promptly to any questions that we had( and we had plenty). I would refer to The Symmes Law Group anytime for any of their legal services. Thank you again to the Symmes Law Group and Richard for all of your help”

I highly recommend Richard at the Symmes Law Group”

Thank you!”

I was more than pleased with your straight forward answers to my questions, laying out just what my fees would be, and what the process was going to entail.
