  • I cannot thank Joseph, David & Ms. Virginia enough!

    “I cannot thank Joseph, David and Ms Virginia enough! They all made me feel like a family member and were always willing to listen during this trying times in my life! After taking care of a terminally sick child for two years, I was forced me to file for chapter 13 bankruptcy, I felt like a failure, watched my American dream drowning, but the staff all made me believe there was hope and a fresh start in life! I was able to pay off my 5 years payment plan in 3yrs. I want to thank all the staff for not making me feel like a failure, and for giving me good guidance. You are the best team!”

  • The best

    “This firm did an excellent, professional job for us and we highly recommend can't go wrong........”


  • His attention to detail and to my case made me feel like he cared about me.

    “I wanted to take a couple minutes to thank Joe Doyle for all the work that he put into helping me get my debt discharged. It was a long painful process, but he made it bearable by easing my mind and reassuring me that I should get a favorable decision. Furthermore, I was working with another lawyer for nearly 10 months prior to coming to Joe Doyle, and it was immediately obvious that Joe's breadth of in-depth knowledge was far superior. With Joe, it only took about 2 months from my initial visit until we filed, and for the most part, things were pretty smooth until the final discharge decision. Any speed bump encountered along the way, he quickly addressed and got resolved as fast as possible. In addition, he clearly knows all the laws and simplified the process, making it much smoother than it had been with the lawyer I previously fired. Joe even took the time to help explain various things that concerned me and clarified items for which I was misinformed. His attention to detail and to my case made me feel like he cared about me and helping me rather than feeling like I was just another number. I feel like a massive burden has been removed from hanging over my head, and my stress level has decreased significantly. Thanks again for all your help.”


  • I would highly recommend him.

    “Mr. Doyle was there from the beginning of my filing until my discharge, he will also be there for 5 years if I need him. He explained everything until I understood. I would highly recommend him. If I had to do this all over again I would choose him. Thank you Mr. Doyle!”

  • So easy and not complicated.. What a relief for me!

    “This firm is so professional, yet very nice and so friendly in their support. From Joe Sr, Joe Jr, David and Virginia I was always treated with respect and received top notch and professional service from each of them. They completely eliminated all of my anxiety in dealing with my financial data and the Legal System in general. I couldn’t be more pleased and satisfied with the level of service I have received from them. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this Firm to anyone who is seeking financial assistance. They even offered to assist me in getting rid of two timeshares that I owned and were getting to be a real heavy burden for me. I just can’t say enough about the detailed quality and level of professionalism I have received. If this form had 10 stars, I wouldn’t hesitate to rate them a perfect 10!”

  • Joe and his staff treated my wife and I with respect and made us feel secure.

    “Joseph Doyle and his staff have been helping our family for several years. They have made the chapter 13 process as painless as it can be. The first thing you will notice is the relaxed atmosphere when you enter the office for a consultation. Joe took the time to acquaint himself with us and our needs. Bankruptcy is a solution to your problems and not an admission of failure. Joe and his staff treated my wife and I with respect and made us feel secure that we were doing the right thing for our situation. The cost is reasonable and nearly all of the expenses were rolled into our settlement. There is light at the end of the tunnel and I feel comfortable with this firm. It is a relief to know that our interests are being protected. I highly recommend Mr. Doyle and his staff to help you recover from your debt situation.”

  • They changed my and my family's lives!

    “Joseph P. Doyle and his team represented my family this past year in Chapter 7. It was one of the most positive experiences I've had with ANY service. They guided me through the process, and was always available for questions before AND after the completion of my file. I was literally drowning in debt, and after consulting with Joe's office, we could finally breath again. I wish I didn't wait as long as I did. They changed my and my family's lives by helping me get a fresh start financially! I would recommend them in a heartbeat to my friends and family. Thank you sincerely from me and my family!”

  • Two Thumbs Up!!

    “I can honestly say that before we met Joseph Doyle I was very nervous tentative and had absolutely no knowledge about bankruptcy's in general. My wife and I set up an appointment with him and after meeting with Joe and his team we were completely aware of all our options and well informed on the over all process. It went exactly as he said it would without a problem and the end result was also 100% as he said it would be. I can say without hesitating that we would recommend Joseph Doyle to anyone and everyone, It was a pleasure to have his team represent us at such a time of need.”

  • Great Firm

    “I walked in the door a broken man and Joe Doyle and staff were extremely cordial and supportive and 5 years later I came out a new man. Joe is extremely understanding of any issues that come up and very supportive I would highly recommend him and his company to anyone that needs his services.”


  • Thank you so much!

    “I had lost my job and my husband and I were struggling to pay our bills. We then decided to file for bankruptcy. When I walked in the office I was embarrassed, ashamed and very nervous.

I will always be grateful that a came across such a honest, caring and down to earth group of people. Thank you so much!”


  • You gave me insightful information that no one else did.

    “I wanted to send you a thank-you card in regards to the information you had given me about bankruptcy a few months ago. Now I am debt-free, and I will never forget the fact that I was in $130k in debt. I just wanted to thank you for your insightful information, and even though you could not help me do a BK, you gave me insightful information that no one else did.”


  • I will always recommend you.

    “Thank you for all of your help. I have a second chance. I will always recommend you. I'll keep in touch. God bless you.”


  • Joe gave me hope when there appeared to none.

    “I just hung up with someone from Geraci Law thinking I was going to lose my house in order to pay my credit card debt. Geraci law told me there was nothing I could do because several houses in the area were selling at a higher rate, note not sold for but trying to sell for a higher rate. I thought when a doctor tells you bad news about your health. What do we do, we get a second opinion. So. I looked up online for an attorney near me and found Joseph Doyle's website. I called his office and he asked me all kinds of questions and informed me the first thing that needed to be done was getting an appraisal on my house and then that would determine what my options would be. The appraisal came in much lower than what the houses are selling for. Joe gave me hope when there appeared to none. I like that he laid it all out for me so I would know what to expect. Joe is outstanding and compassionate.”

    Maureen H.

  • They are pleasant, thoughtful and helpful.

    “In just a few years, my financial woes will be under control thanks to my bankruptcy attorney Joseph P. Doyle. His office schedules appointments around you and they see you on time. After sitting down your questions are answered and everything you need to do and know is explained. The staff expresses genuine concern. They are pleasant, thoughtful and helpful. Phone calls to his office are returned promptly. Although it is rare that a return call is necessary because someone is always available to assist you. My embarrassment was quickly relieved and the stigma that surrounds bankruptcy was minimized by the detailed unique experience with Attorney Doyle and staff. They are happy to serve and I am delighted to have chosen Joseph P. Doyle to represent me.”


  • Highly recommended!

    “Very reasonable priced. The entire staff is so understandable, non-judgemental and very personable. They work with you so the entire process is stressless and very quick. I was very anxious, but after initial consultation I knew this was the firm for me. If any creditors are doing anything illegal, Joe will sue that creditor and will win. Two creditors were sending correspondence containing illegal language, Joe sued those creditor's and we won both cases. I received a check from both suits,, it was like a free bankruptcy for me. Joe and his staff are the absolute best. They make you feel like family. I can't thank them enough for a new start. Highly recommended!”

  • Joe is a total professional & extremely knowledgeable.

    “Had to quit work to attend to my wife 23/7 while she went through cancer treatment. Bill's kept piling up and mortgage in jeopardy. A close friend recommended Joe, who handled his bankruptcy.

    Joseph P. Doyle

  • Working with Joe has been a very exceptional experience.

    “Working with Joe has been a very exceptional experience. He has been as helpful as anyone can be regarding our situation, and would recommend his services to anyone in need of them. There also is a very positive and professional atmosphere at his offices, which adds to my overall satisfaction.”


  • A sincere thanks!

    “Sadly, I found myself in a position where I needed to file for bankruptcy. I originally consulted with Debt Stoppers, and the information that I obtained from Debt Stoppers was not conducive to giving me the support that I needed to become debt free. This could have been a huge mistake because the cost was higher, they were not personable, and they were not trying to prevent me from making costly mistakes with my finances. I was given the information of Joe Doyle and Associates from a dear friend. This was a total blessing because the cost was cheaper, and Joe Doyle and Associates stopped me from making crucial mistakes in my quest to become debt free. They were beyond professional, and they walked me through the process with dignity. Please do not allow the jingles and advertisements from other firms to influence you in making a costly mistake with your finances. I would strongly advise everyone to allow this firm to handle your quest to become debt free, especially if you truly want to be treated with dignity and respect!”

    Anita Stewart

  • Joe was a pleasure to work with from the start.

    “Joe was a pleasure to work with from the start. He possesses a thorough, intimate knowledge of the law, was supportive, and made what I expected to be a difficult and arduous process painless and simple. I can't recommend him highly enough.”

    Todd H.

  • He put me at ease right away.

    “Going through bankruptcy is absolutely stressful. I was drowning in debt and it was only growing. I had to consider bankruptcy and was extremely anxious about it. Initially I spoke with Mr. Dave Johnsen by phone. He immediately put me at ease and reassured me that they will help me and I would be okay. My initial consultation with Mr. Joseph Doyle, Sr. was absolutely wonderful. He put me at ease right away and explained the process. I walked out of the consultation confident that this was the best thing for me to begin my journey getting out of debt. The process was extremely fast and seamless. Mr. Joseph Doyle, Jr. met with me to go over my Chapter 13 paperwork. I am still shocked at how fast and painless the entire process was. I highly recommend Mr. Doyle and his staff for anyone considering bankruptcy. The initial consultation is free and extremely helpful. There is absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain. Now I have begun my journey to get out of debt and I feel relieved.”


  • Outstanding job by a superb good attorney!

    “Outstanding job by a superb good attorney. Mine was a very complicated case and Joe led me through the process with skill and compassion. I could not have made it through the process without Joe's skill and expert guidance. I would highly, highly recommend Joe to anyone and everyone. I would give more than five stars if I could.”

    Ian E.

They have been able to wash all my debt away and most importantly help me turn a new leaf over. Thank you Joe Doyle!”
