After originally working with another bankruptcy attorney who did not turn out to be very helpful, we switched to Kerry Hammond of Greenwald & Hammond, P.C. So glad we did. She was much more knowledgeable about the bankruptcy process, gave us way more information than our previous attorney and told us exactly what to expect and how much it would cost. No hidden surprises! Her and her staff always responded quickly to email or phone questions. She was a very calming influence at the actual court hearing. I would highly recommend her and her staff to anyone going through the difficult process of bankruptcy.
Wonderful Law firm. They have everything in place that a person looking for a lawyer or any business is looking for: They explain everything very well and there are no surprises. They are attentive to every phone call or email. I never had a question I brought up either via email or phone that was not answered within 24 hours. There were no hidden fees or surprises with the amount of money they were charging for taking my case. Most of my issues or questions could be answered on the phone even if my lawyer was not available at the time. They have people in the firm who are quite competent. Most of the time I did not get excuses why they could not help me immediatly. My case was pretty complicated but Kerry stuck with the case thruout. Never did I wonder if I was on my own. This law firm is unusual in today's business world. They tell you what they are going to do and they do it!! No excuses, no long waits, no surprises. A breath of fresh air!!!
Going thru Bankruptcy was one of the hardest decisions my husband and I ever made. We were so blessed to have found Kerry Hammond of Greenwald & Hammond. We had the pleasure of working with Kerry Hammond. She made this experience easy, comfortable and not stressful. The process went so smooth. I will always recommend Kerry Hammond of Greenwald & Hammond to anyone who needs there assistance.
In October 2011 I was in need of a Bankruptcy Attorney. After much thought and consideration and interviewing Attorneys, I decided to use the Professional Service of Kerry Hammond. This was indeed a very good decision, because Kerry used her expertise ability to guide me through this trying time of filing bankruptcy. I thought this would be a very long process however, Kerry guided me through the procedure. This was a good and pleasant business relationship therefore, I would recommend Kerry to anyone.
Kerry took my bankruptcy case on after I was fired by another attorney that I had retained because he said my case was too difficult. After this happened I was in total disbelief and not understanding why and questioning if I was doing the right thing. I had a brief phone consultation with Kerry and she encourage me to come in for a visit with no obligation, she reviewed my case and seen no issue with it and was confident that I had qualified for filing, she also layed out all my options with no pressure. Filing for bankruptcy is a difficult time in ones life and can be a humiliating experience, plus you are in a vulnerable place. You need to have someone in your corner that you can trust and rely upon, and that will make you feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire process, and thats exactly what you will get from Kerry Hammond and all the employees of Greenwald & Hammond P.C. Thanks for all your help JD
I started my Bankruptcy in IL with a lawyer who did nothing over 2 years. I moved to CO in 2012 and a friend highly recommended Kerry Hammond. After such a terrible experience I was very skeptical and afraid to trust another lawyer. When I came to her office I was greeted by her assistant who was extremely warm and kind. Kerry treated me the same way. Kerry is very knowledgeable with understanding the Bankruptcy laws in CO and had done her homework on the difference between IL laws and CO laws. She provide me the information I needed and within three months my Bankruptcy was completed. Kerry answered questions anytime I called and when we met, she prepared me for everything I could expect going to court. I felt completely at ease knowing she would be with me and everything went slowly and better than I could have ever expected. If ANYONE would ask me for a lawyer, she would be the first person I would suggest. Her integrity, knowledge, and kindness were so important to me as a client and she exceeded my expectations.
Kerry and her offices did an awesome job with my filing. They are always there for any questions that you may have; Kerry showed a true interest in my finances and assured me that they would be there for me through the length of my filing term. I would rate their offices as an A+.
From the second I walked into Kerry's office, I was treated with respect. Bankruptcy was a very difficult decision for me to take, and Kerry and all her staff made it a really easy process. I was so impressed with how organized she is and so knowledable. On the actual court date, I watched 2 people before me have to come back because their attorneys did not have the proper forms organized. I was grateful I had hired Kerry-it just goes to show, you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Kerry Hammond for anyone seeking help with their bankruptcy.
When I came to the difficult decision of doing a bankruptcy I chose Greenwald & Hammond, P.C.. My lawyer there was Kerry Hammond. Though it was a very stressful time in my life, Kerry Hammond and everyone in her office put me at ease. I felt like they knew exactly what I was going through and they took care of everything. I felt cared for, understood, and respected. Ms. Hammond kept in close contact with me through the entire process. When I had a question, even the most trivial of questions, someone would be there to answer it or I would get a call back usually within 30-60 minutes. I've even had questions since my case has been closed, months afterward even, and she's been there to help. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kerry Hammond to my dearest friends and family - I'm certain she would get them through the process as smoothly as she did for me.
II would like to recommend Kerry Hammond of Greenwald and Hammond as excellent council for bankruptcy. Kerry and her staff made it an easy comfortable process for me. As a recently divorced woman, I felt very comfortable explaining my situation and felt very supported. Everyone in the office always met me with a friendly smile and they made the entire process easy to understand and I always felt like they had my best interest at heart. I was able to speak to someone in person at any time and had all of my questions answered immediately. This was not a process I took lightly, but Kerry, her partner and their legal assistant made it as painless and seamless as possible .I couldnt have asked for a better experience considering the situation.
I met with four different attorneys before choosing Kerry Hammond for our personal bankruptcy. Many of the attorneys had us talk to assistants or paralegals, never even met us in person, had us fill out forms in the office or online like we were not individuals with individual questions and concerns. Kerry was warm and friendly, thoughtful, and straight with us from the start. She took the time to answer a million questions before she ever got a nickel from us. It was worth paying a little more for the feeling that we mattered. She personally took multiple emails and phone calls from us when we had worries or questions - even at night and on weekends. I felt like the other attorneys were just doing it for the money, but never did we feel that way with Kerry. She took time to talk with us and treat us like people, not just debtors. It made a scary, unpleasant decision much easier and the process easy and less painful than we expected. And I didn't feel like a kid in the principal's office, I felt like a person who got into an untenable situation, and she understood that it didn't diminish my intelligence or value as a functioning adult. I would recommend her to anyone!
I found working with Kerry Hammond to be quite a wonderful experience. Initially when I contacted her I was trying to determine whether bankruptcy was the right alternative for me. She was extremely knowledgeable, non judgemental and compassionate. I was struggling with a lot of fear and embarrasment, but came away from our first meeting with the information I needed to make a good decision. I also felt so relieved that Kerry was available to help me with her expertise, because I was feeling very overwhelmed by the mattters I was facing. I did end up taking the bankruptcy route, and it was a very positive experience from beginning to end. Kerry has a set of steps for her clients to take that are extremely helpful because they almost force you to get organized, and on the right track for the future. When we finally had the court date, we were definitely the most organized and prepared people in the room, and my case was processed quickly and without any goofs or complications. I feel that working with Kerry Hammond was a very worthwhile experience and would recommend her to anyone struggling with similar issues. She is extremely knowledgeable, practical, sensible, and trustworthy. Her fees are not the cheapest in town, but you will find they are wirth every penny. She and her staff are extremely thorough on all points, and give every question or concern their full attention.
Kerry was wonderful! Professional yet approachable. She answered all my questions and was with me every step of the way. I would recommend her to anyone needing a competent, friendly, professional lawyer. Thanks Kerry and all the Greenwald and Hammond staff!
I found myself in an unfortunate and unsustainable situation when my ex-husband was unable to continue making child support payments. My circumstances weren't the greatest and Kerry was very patient. She explained my bankruptcy options, fees, and future impacts thoroughly. She did a terrific job in guiding me through the process and supporting me through the hearing. She wasn't only incredibly professional and diligent but her support came at a time when it was needed most. I would recommend her without question for any legal service!
I found Kerry and her legal team to be very knowledgeable, efficient, and effective in our exploration of bankruptcy provision and benefits. She was understanding and objective and was a great coach throughout the entire process. Her legal team stepped in when needed and made for a great experience in an otherwise difficult time. I warmly recommend Kery and Greenwald & Hammond, PC.
From the moment I met Kerry and her staff the level of professionalism was very high. Her knowledge of the process and the time frame it would take to complete the bankruptcy process was very comforting. Kerry is well knowledged in her profession and I would recommend her to others that have underwent financial hardship.
Kerry and her staff are wonderful! Kerry was very reassuring at a time in my life when everything seemed to be upside down. Whenever I had a question or concern, Kerry promptly provided me with answers. I found everyone to be very professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Kerry Hammond.
Very professional, thorough, and friendly, during a stressful time in our lives. Ms. Hammond and her staff were prompt in answering our many questions through both phone calls and emails, and we felt assured during the process that everything was being handled appropriately. After researching other firms and speaking to other attorneys, we felt confident in Greenwald & Hammond, and in the end were quite satisfied. High recommendations for Ms. Hammond and her firm's personal service.
Super knowledgeable, professional, thorough, energetic and compassionate. Received flawless guidance, availability and support. Couldn't be more satisfied, with the outstanding competence of Kerry and her staff. Highly recommend!
Rock solid communication and service! Smooth sailing with no surprises. Absolutely pleased! You can be calm and confident having chosen Kerry to represent you. Very highly recommend!
Filing Bankruptcy is a tough decision in which you go through a lot of emotion. Kerry Hammond and her staff are VERY compassionate and understanding. She helped me realize that filing bankruptcy was NOT the end of the world, but a chance to get a fresh start. From start to finish, Kerry kept me informed of what to expect, as well as what to expect after the process was over. She and Jesse M are VERY professional, knowledgeable and prompt. Not that I will need Kerry's services in the future, but I sure have recommended and will continue to recommend her! Thank you Kerry!!
It is a genuine pleasure and honor for me to recommend Kerry Hammond of Greenwald & Hammond, PC. Kerry offered me great advice and support regarding my legal matter. Her knowledge and expertise was very reassuring. I honestly felt a sense of relief and confidence having Kerry with me every step of the way. Needless to say, I sincerely appreciate everything she has done for me. Kerry Hammonds personal and professional representation qualifies her as the ideal attorney and she has my personal recommendation.
Kerry was our attorney and I have to say she made the process easy and simple for my husband and me. We had a lot of debt and no idea what to do. Kerry sat us down, went through everything with us and explained each step as she did it. If we had any questions or concerns, she answered them to the best of her ability. My husband was a bit more skeptical than me, as are all men. Even he felt assured after talking to Kerry and having her answer his questions. She always answered our emails within 24 hours, it was never hard to get a hold of her and we never felt rushed or stupid for any concerns that we voiced. If Kerry wasn't in the office, her paralegal or her partner were there to answer our questions, so we were never left without help. Even when there was slight hiccup in our case, Kerry took it all i stride, having already anticipated any issues, calm and collected. I'm not saying that I'd want to go through bankruptcy again, but if we had to, I'd take Kerry and her firm any day.
Ms. Hammond accepted our bankruptcy case after another attorney, who we had paid in full, did not perform. Kerry quickly, effeciently, and professionally, gathered all of the necessary information and filed our case. My wife and I could not be more satisfied with her efforts along with the delightful and professional office management of Jesse McGee. It was a very difficult decision to have to file bankruptcy, but the manner in which Kerry Hammond and her support team moved us seamlessly through the process made it a little easier than it otherwise could have been. I would recommend Greenwald & Hammond without hesitation to anyone in need of their professional services.
I think that Kerry Hammonds approach was ideal for us in our situation. I had an initial free consultation in which she explained my options, my wife and I had been through a lot of sleepless nights trying to figure out our finances. We chose Kerry over the other Bankruptcy attornies because of her honesty and she let us know up front that we had some work to do as well. After she collected the required documentation from us, she began working on our case. It took less than a week for the collection calls to stop, which meant that she had been in contact with our debtors and the process was off and running. Any time I had a question for her she answered it with confidence and compassion. Kerry has given me a better night sleep and a better quality of life. It took my wife and I a while to realize that any fight we had been in had been over stress with our financials. I have been educated through this experience with Kerry to realize where I made my financial mistakes so I dont end up in the same place I have already been.
We were so blessed to find Kerry and her law firm to get us through a very hard time of our life. I researched several debt consolidation firms and was very nervous after seeing the ratings on the BBB so started searching the internet for a law firm to help us and stumbled on Greenwald & Hammond. Kerry and her staff moved us through the process as fast as I could get the paperwork to them and made a stressful time a little easier. She told us what the plan was and made it happen. There were no surprises. She and her staff were available to answer any and all of my questions as we went through the process. I would recommend Kerry and Greenwald & Hammond to anyone.
I could not have asked for a more understanding and helpful attorney for my filing. Kerry outlined the process me, in detail, so that I would know what to expect and how best to handle my situation. She was always readily available to answer my questions or concerns, and her responses were always prompt. Even six months after my filing, when I had concerns regarding some paperwork I received, the level of service was just as high as the first day I met with her. Kerry definitely made this seemingly overwhelming point in my life feel manageable. I would highly recommend her.
Before filing Ch. 7, I researched a few different lawyers in the Boulder and Denver area. I was treated rudely at one office and was brushed off by another attorney. Kerry and her team were instantly friendly and helpful. Her office staff is also very professional and do not come across as judgmental. I highly recommend Kerry to anyone interested in filing. Kerry was organized, timely, and efficient. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
I want to make note that Greenwald & Hammond was not the first attorney we spoke with. That meeting was not informational as I had expected. Then my husband found Greenwald & Hammond and called to make the appointment. From the first consultation, Kerry was more than friendly and very professional. We were in need of serious professional help. My husband and I were at our wits end. The advice Kerry gave us was honest and the wealth of knowledge was immense. It made us feel competent in our decision. With the entire process, Kerry and the staff at Greenwald & Hammond have been there for every question, every concern and many panicked phone calls. We followed the process and with doing so have been very grateful with the outcome. Our lives are significantly different from 1 year ago today.
I retained Kerry Hammond as my attorney to represent me in my fiancial demise. This was a very difficult time for me. Kerry handled my case on a very professional level, yet comforting and assuring that the future would improve. The entire staff was always available, attentive to my questions and very supportive. It was meaniful to know that I had a qualified team behind me at all times! Foreclosures and Bankruptcies are abundant these days and it was very important to me to know that my needs were met by a genuine, knowledgeable and professional attorney. I was not just another case to process through. If a good doctor has great bedside manner, I would use the analagy that a great attorney is great in and out of the court room and before and after as well. I highly recommend Kerry Hammond and her team.
