"Unfortunately a divorce forced me to file bankruptcy – something I never imagined doing, even in my wildest dreams! The offices of Giles and Lambert guided me step by step through my entire Chapter 7 Bankruptcy process. 

My experience was discreet, professional and very positive – despite my apprehensions and embarrassment.  The lawyers and other professionals in their office were always available and willing to address my questions and concerns along the way. 

Even though I wish I could have avoided the decision to file bankruptcy, I would highly recommend the professionals at Giles and Lambert to represent you if you are ever faced with such a decision – They are wonderful!"

"I cannot tell you how much I appreciate everything that you’ve done. The situation is far from optimal, but when you’re done crying over spilled milk, all you can do is make the best of it. I couldn’t feel more supported, well represented and comfortable with this.


I’ve never – not for a second – felt like I wasn’t in the best of hands. Thank you, Malissa."

"I got myself into this mess, but with a 2nd chance I will get back on track. Now I can put the fear of losing my house behind me, sleep better...breathe!  ... Kristina told me you reduced my fee. That just shows me you and your good wife are in this business to help folks like me... thanks for being there for me.

 - Joyce D. - Client


"You all have made a very complex and stressful process manageable.  Malissa is a knowledgeable, consummate professional and Brittany an accomplished detail oriented administrative assistant.  Both make a powerful team to help folks at a point in their lives when they are at the end of their rope without much hope


They operate with care, empathy, and compassion.  You don't feel judged--rather you feel helped and both go beyond the letter of the law by understanding the personal dynamics in one's life that led them to their firm. Further they are there for you before, during, and after the process--you don't feel alone or abandoned.  They were immediate in their responses to your concerns and questions.  Five stars in my book."  

- 2013 Chapter 13 Client, Blacksburg,VA


"Thank you so much for seeing to me during this stressful time. You're a great team. Keeping my house was by far most important at my age & bad health...Many people who have lost control of their finances (like me) are blessed to find folks like Giles & Lambert...I will be able to sleep tonight. I am sure I will be seeing you soon. I do so appreciate your help and good service... 2nd chances feel good!
