Before I met with Matt I was terrified about my finically situation and how to get out of debt. With the help of Matt I was able to file for chapter 13, repair my credit, make payments to my debtors, all while being able to save money as well. Matt and his office were always quick to respond and were very helpful with any difficult situation that came up. I highly recommend talking to Matt if anyone is reading this and is scared about your finically future. It was painless, easy to follow, and it's the best financial decision I’ve ever made! I can’t thank him and the Cherney Law firm enough.

I was so glad I found The Cherney Law Firm to help me with my serious financial situation. Attorney Cherney was very helpful and professional with a calming demeanor because I was embarressed and upset that I was in the situation I was in. The fact that it is a small law firm, and not a lot of people handling your paperwork which I had heard terrible stories from other people where the "right hand did not know what the left hand was doing" in some very large law firms and their paperwork had gotten lost or something was not completed was important to me. Attorney Cherney explained everything completely and thoroughly. His assistant, Denise was friendly, very helpful and down to earth.The cost of the service was reasonable also. I would definitely recommend Cherney Law Firm to anyone.

After taking on the responsibility of taking care of my aging Mother [who was suffering from the ill effects of dementia], I quickly began to experience extreme financial difficulties. After careful consideration and weighing all options, I made the decision to file a Chapter 13 BK in 2013. I began researching to determine who will represent me through this process as I had mixed emotions and thoughts about having to file and ruin my credit. I narrowed my selection down to (3) BK Attorneys after reading reviews and other online information.Atty. Matthew Cherney stood out the most of the (3) that I was considering as my Atty. We exchanged a few emails and set up an appointment for me to meet with him in his office. From the time I entered his office, I felt a sense of calmness (having to file a BK is nerve wrecking). I completed the necessary documents needed for the filing process. Matt was patient, kind, thorough and quite considerate. I explained to him my current circumstances with assuming the responsibility of taking care of my aging Mother. At the time, I was embarrassed at having to file a BK but Matt reassured me that he has seen an influx of others who find themselves in the same predicament.I had to return to Matt's office for a 2nd visit. During this visit, Matt mentioned to me that he had a conversation [about my circumstances] with his Father-in-law who is a Physician. I remember sitting there looking at him in total awe as I was totally shocked that he was seeking advice for me in terms of caring for my Mother. The advice he provided was insightful and the advice was further confirmation that had some hard work/research to do.Matt is copiously knowledgeable, responsive to emails, detailed and supportive. I am happy to say that I am at the very end of my 5 yr BK repayment and looking forward to being successfully discharged. During this time, my Mother passed away from the ill effects of Dementia. When I advised Matt of this, he immediately offered his heartfelt condolences.Not that anyone wants to find themselves needing a BK Atty. but should the need arises, I highly recommend Atty. Matthew Cherney.

I am 79 years young and worked 45 of those years. Had hoped to spend my golden years on a beach somewhere sipping pretty drinks with umbrellas and no worries. As it turned out, my Mother needed financial help the last five years of her life and I probably was not as frugal as I should have been with. Bottom line about four months ago, I realized my back was against the wall and I had no where to turn and those pretty drinks were just a fantasy never going to happen.By chance I looked at the only option I had left and found CHERNEY LAW FIRM. Mattt has been a Godsend. After my first meeting, I knew I had found the solution to my problems and he has been with me every step of the way with great advice and support. I now have my life back on track and cannot express enough the relief I now feel every day to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Matt is constantly responsive to any questions that I have and his reassurace that all is well and taken care of is always there. He has a wonderful assistant in Denese and I am so very glad I took the step and met with them and took this step. Truly one of the best decisions I ever made. He rates FIVE STARS++++

In my recent bankruptcy filing, I decided upon the Cherney Law Firm based on positive reviews I saw previously. From the beginning, Mr. Cherney "Matthew' was friendly, down to earth, very professional,knowledgeable, and very helpful in answering my questions and addressing any concerns I may have had, and was with me throughout the entire process from start to finish, and was easily reachable if I had further questions.I highly recommend the Cherney Law Firm for anyone seeking an attorney to represent them in this process. Even after my discharge, Mathew recommended various services for me to utilize and books to help me stay on track, budget, and watch my spending habits as well. I really can't imagine if I had another attorney if they would have taken the time and concern that Matthew did and go that "extra mile", and I'm so thankful I decided to choose his law firm, and you will be also. Thank you again Matthew for all your help.

AGAIN I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE CHERNEY LAW FIRM LLC!
