Mr. Shenwick helped simplify the complex procedure of filing for bankruptcy. He presented us with clear, distinct options and made the disturbing process very manageable. His guidance and diligence has given my wife and I the fresh financial start we so badly needed."

Dear Legal Referral Service,

In September, I found myself in need of legal assistance with a matter involving my previous employer and their attempt to deprive me of compensation as a part of their bankruptcy proceedings.  Being new to the New York area, I was not sure where to turn for legal advice.  I went to the New York State Bar Association web site and followed the “Need to hire an attorney?” link, which led me to contacting your office.  I was very pleased with the courteous and prompt service that your representative provided.  I was referred to Shenwick & Associates, a bankruptcy specialist firm.  I contacted Jim Shenwick and was able to meet with him that very same day for the initial consultation.   I was impressed with Jim’s integrity and congenial manner, as well as his ability to quickly distill the facts of the case.  Based on the information that Jim provided in the initial consultation, I decided to proceed and retained Shenwick & Associates as my legal counsel.

From the very outset, Jim and his associate, Douglas Greene, demonstrated superior customer service.  They promptly began gathering the information needed for the filings, seemingly leaving “no stone unturned” in preparing arguments on my behalf.  Jim kept me informed every step of the way.  As we entered into settlement discussions,  Jim demonstrated strong and tenacious negotiating skills, and I believe he got the best deal possible.  I feel that Jim went “above and beyond the call of duty” to make sure I was treated fairly.
I whole-heartedly recommend Shenwick & Associates to anyone that needs the services that his firm provides.  I will certainly turn to Jim should I encounter any future legal matters.  I will also recommend Legal Referral Services to anyone who is not sure where to go for legal advice.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me through any of the means listed below.  Thank you for your consideration and kind service.

In the past, I have recommended you when someone has asked for a referral and I will continue to do so."

"Jim, I want to thank you and Doug for your great work on my behalf which led to a successful conclusion to my Chapter 7 filing. The case was quite complicated because of the business angle but you steered me through the process very competently and effectively. You put in a lot of hard work at the beginning, which made the actual process very smooth since we had addressed all the potential issues in advance. Keep up the good work!"

-A client from New York, NY who filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy related to multi-million dollar business debts in 2016

Thank you for your time yesterday.  It was nice to see you in action!  I was particularly impressed that the judge knew you by name and addressed you when we walked up to him.  I can tell you, having listened to all the morning cases, that he did not speak to the other Attorneys in the same way – including inflection in his voice.  It certainly put me at ease."
