My only complaint is the lack of attentiveness to certain issues. I originally filed bankruptcy in December of 2022, and there was an issue with my original filing. Mr. Pleva was able to refile my case in January of 2023, successfully my bankruptcy case was discharged in May of 2023. However, there was an issue with one of the creditors that did not receive a notice that bankruptcy had been reopened and discharged, as a result my credit report was reflecting an error. After a couple of months I discovered that the issue had not been corrected. I stopped into the office in August of 2023, and explained the issue I was provided information that an adversary would be filed. I waited some time to receive an update, but no information was provided. Upon a background check for my new employer I discovered that the information was STILL on my credit report I reached back out to Mr. Pleva, only to be told that another adversary would be filed. I eventually had to file a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in December of 2023, and was later provided information that a notice was never sent to the creditor in reference to the second bankruptcy filing. So with that being said, I was just being provided information but no resolution if I would have never filed the complaint I would have still been getting the runaround. Although, the results are fast and the staff are nice if you have other options I would definitely explore those to prevent possible headaches in the future.
They handled my bankruptcy in 2020, and in 1 year I will be out of payments. They have truly been there every single step of the process! Any hiccups that would pop up they were ON IT! Any anyone needs help and is contemplating bankruptcy, I shout “PLEVA!” As the best option in the area! So blessed to have contacted them!
Contrary to bad reviews, I've very skeptical due to the bankruptcy situation, but Mr. Pleva exceeded all great reviews prior. Of course, people can nick pick here and there, but he got the job done, quickly, accurately, and very professional with his knowledge of law. Only complaint, just Crack a smile Mr. Pleva, you took the weight of the world of my shoulders. Your great at what you do, A+, standing ovation. THANK YOU
I had not thought of Mr. Pleva's firm in a long time, and I am only writing this review because I received an email requesting referrals to the firm. Being forthright, I would NOT refer anyone to the Pleva law firm due to the very poor performance I received in years past. It was a while ago, but I noticed similar issues from other clients' more recent reviews. In my opinion, if you have a basic case, that does not need any oversight, you have no questions, and do not need timely follow-up, this firm could be for you. In my experience, the firm's lack of timely follow-up on action items that were sent to the office caused me to have severe irreversible consequences. I would not want anyone to go through what happened to me, and therefore would not recommend this firm.
I had a last minute situation. My vehicle was assigned for repo the following day. I called other attorneys and they could not file same day and would have taken a week and my car would have been gone by then. Mr. Pleva told me he could file and get me a case number same day. He did cost more than the other attorneys BUT he was there when I was in an Emergency Situation. I thanked him so many times for being the only one to help me the same day I walked in with my personal 911. He kept saying "that's what we are here for" those were not just words to me, his actions gave those words value and lifted my burden. His secretary was just as welcoming as his office with the green color on the walls. I felt at ease every moment until we spoke and we got things done and after I walked out. Words and actions go hand in hand and when you find anyone who does what they say you can place Trust in that person. All I can say is he was there for me and it was important for me to share that with others.
