I am not writing this review as a bankruptcy client of Mr. Berggren…..it is quite the opposite. This review, which I hope to post everywhere, is about Mr. B’s character, his courtesy and understanding, his extreme knowledge of contractual and bankruptcy laws, and his professionalism (not to mention his terrific sense of humor). On 3/3/23, I signed a contract with Covenant Roofing in Durham, as well as the financing documents for the job through GoodLeap, which Covenant refers their clients to for financing options. About 5 weeks after I signed the contracts, no work had yet been started, Covenant Roofing filed for bankruptcy. Also, GoodLeap increased the amount of the contract I signed and they would not give me an addendum or a voided contract of the first one I signed, even though that amount was included AGAIN in the second set of loan documents. Of course, I would not sign the second set. A friend of mine is a bankruptcy client of Mr. B, and she suggested I contact him for an unusual sort of consultation. First of all, somebody actually answered the phone when I called his office, and second of all, he called me right back. He said he would be happy to talk about my situation right over the phone, and third of all, with NO CONSULTATION FEE after 40 minutes on the phone. Amazing. The bottom line is that, even though he is not my lawyer or representing me in any way, I took his advice on what to do which resulted in me getting out of my GoodLeap financing loan. And because I have it documented and memorialized that Covenant never started the work, nor did they return my calls and inquiries, that matter is also considered as null and void. Thank you Mr. Berggren for being a decent human being who is ruled and driven by just doing something nice!
I’m not much on writing reviews but I feel like I’d be doing a disservice by not sucking it up for the gain of others after having done business with Mr. Berggren. Being 50 I come from the age of filing being something taboo and I couldn’t say with any more certainty it was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I immediately had a weight lifted off my shoulders after going to court with Bill and being approved to file with the damages I had caused myself financially. Not only was I able to keep my car and home but I was able to walk away from bad decisions in my opinion such as a time share, high interest loan, etc. I spent a lot of time checking others reviews and one of the many great things about filing with Bill is the fact you deal with the person you hire. It’s not like the offices of big name lawyers where you deal with all their up and comers. Not that they don’t deserve their right to make a name for themselves but when you’re talking about salvaging everything I’ve ever worked for having him by my side in court and every step of the way was lets say a blessing. Should you need to make this decision to better your financial and mental well being you can’t go wrong with working with Bill in my opinion. Best Wishes in your endeavors and I pray you’re blessed as I have been in your future years both mentally and financially.
Had a consultation a month or so ago in regards to an elderly relatives' financial problems. We were 100% sure were were going to have to file bankruptcy for this relative, but when we met with William Berggren he advised us to wait for now and revisit the situation in a year. He could of very easily told us to file this bankruptcy, and collected our money, but he was very patient explaining the process and advising us to wait for now. If in a year we need to pursue this filing we will definitely us his law office.
Attorney Berggren was professional, courteous and patient. He went above and beyond the scope of his needed involvement to listen thoroughly, understand our situation, and provide wise counsel. He was not interested in bilking us for payment, and in fact, recommended we NOT pay him for something that was unnecessary (when he easily could have acted like it was, and gotten us to pay.) I highly recommend him when going through the emotional and stressful bankruptcy process.
Mr. Berggren is one of the most upstanding, caring people I have encountered. My/your best interest is what he looks after and the experience I have had with him is second to none other. I particularly like the fact that his office is NOT the type of law firm in a high-rise building downtown with many employees. I could not give a stronger recommendation for having him for legal counsel.
