I have nothing but good things to say about the Southern California Law Advocates, when I went to them about my issues that I was having I called there office and spoke to the attorney Norma Duenas. I went to her office and she explained all the details about the process that were going to go through. When I had any questions the staff was there to answer any question that I had about the process, upon arriving to the time and court date Norma was there to support and to make sure that the hearing went well. If any one was to ask me who I would recommend if they needed help with a bankruptcy, I would tell them to give SCLA a call. My hats off to Norma and her staff.
