What Our Clients Are Saying...

The DeMott Law Firm was very helpful through a most difficult time in our life. They were always available to answer questions and concerns. They took away much of the stress and worry.

After years of putting off the inevitable, I started to research the reality of filing for bankruptcy. One of the first things I found was Mr. DeMott’s website. It immediately put my mind at ease with simple and clear explanations for many of the questions that had been keeping me up at night. Shortly thereafter, I made an appointment for a(...)
