“Byron Berry was succinct, professional, and patient in the initial consultation. His legal expertise seemed unsurpassed. He spoke in plain language and answered all questions. The personnel in the office were always helpful and pleasant. Byron's legal assistant Jackie was absolutely fabulous. The circumstances of a bankruptcy can be very confusing and depressing.
