Customer Reviews

A Judgment was entered in default in another State against me with no service, no notice, no chance to defend myself. A former girlfriend had unknowingly put me on a lease for a home (she apparently signed my name to a rental contract). After she was evicted for not paying her rent, apparently the landlord through his attorney, came after not only her but also me. A ‘collection’ attorney from St Louis attempted to register that default judgment in Moniteau County and then put a lien on my bank account right before Christmas. This was the first I knew of the action.

I contacted Attorney Bryan Wolford to assist me in my defense. Attorney Wolford gained all the information he needed from the out of state court, presented the information to the Judge here. The case was dismissed and all the funds that were being held by the Court Clerk were returned to my bank account. Not knowing how to defend myself in the legal system, I would have been out a couple thousand dollars and paying for this judgment entered in default over 10 years ago against me when it should never have been entered to begin with. I highly recommend Attorney Bryan Wolford. He acted quickly on the matter, was very professional and had my case completed within 60 days!!!

As landlords, we were having some serious issues with a tennant. It was obvious to us we needed the advise/help of an attorney. Our small town has several, and we had in fact used a different attorney in a situation several years prior. We were not happy with the choice of representation we had made in the past and we chose to go with the ‘new’ attorney in town. Attorney Wolford handled our matter competitently and quickly and didn’t gouge us on the price for his work. He was available to speak to us, even after hours. If you are wanting an attorney who is reasonable, works hard for his clients, one who actually takes the time to listen and speak with you, I would highly recommend Attorney Wolford.
