  • I was very satisfied with the services I received from Carol S. Baskin and her legal team. They were always polite, efficient and made me relax when I was feeling uptight and unsure of myself. Carol, in particular, is a delight to talk to and she is highly intelligent and knowledgeable. Patrick Evans was fabulous in moving things along and the rest of the team, especially Marcia and Laura, were always pleasant and accommodating.

  • Thank you sandy for your professional approach to your job an supporting me all the way. It made all the different in the out come of the situation I found myself in.
    – Glendora
  • In stereotypical fashion, my 20-year marriage devolved over time - he got lost in his work and I made our children top priority. No one's fault, just fell out of love, but I'm a hopeful romantic, believing that all Nora Ephron movies are possibilities, so I filed for divorce. I'm the meek one, not prone to such actions, and I found Carol, a brace for my backbone. She's filled many roles during this process and made it less daunting. Fortunately, my divorce is amicable, but I'm so glad Carol and her amazing support staff - Marsha, Laura and Katherine - are in my corner. Their compassion and knowledge are unparalleled and exactly what I needed!

  • Unfortunately, attorneys tend to receive bad raps that are often times unwarranted. In the case of Attorney Burney, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that she was very helpful, professional, and on top of things from beginning to end. While handling my Chapter 13 case, there was never a time when my calls, emails, or texts were not returned promptly. She was always on time for appointments and court appearances. More importantly, she represented me well. I strongly recommend Sandy Burney as a Bankruptcy Attorney to anyone looking for quality service.
