When I finally built up the courage to contact an attorney, I pulled out my yellow pages and began making calls (I didn't want to ask friends or family if they had been in the same situation because I felt embarrassed and was still in denial). I contacted a few firms but Mr. Berggren and his assistant Mai were just what I needed to begin this process. My initial telephone contact with Mai was more than I bargained for. She was knowledgeable, patient and very easy to talk to. I was able to get an appointment within that same week and was ecstatic to find that the knowledge and patience didn't stop at Mai. Mr. Berggren was very thorough and made sure I understood every part of the process, every step of the way. He made it impossible to feel nervous.I am thankful to both Mr. Berggren and Mai for their professionalism and attentiveness. read lessLisette M.5/20/2015

He took me by the hand throughout the entire process. He is very knowledgeable, kind, caring, attentive and honest.

I highly recommend him! read lessCatherine Z.8/14/2021

I contacted the law office and was shocked that Bill answered the phone. I expected to be immediately connected with an assistant. On top of reaching him directly- he had the time to talk to me right then and there over the phone. That was also rare- in my book. There’s something about a personal touch. I explained my situation to Bill and he advised me of a few options that I may have. He scheduled a free consultation for later in the week. I was fortunate to not have to wait weeks to speak with him. It was a pleasure to meet Bill in person. He did not use the common lawyer jargon that many tend to use. He spoke to me as I was a human being that made some mistakes. He did not guilt me or make me feel bad for the decisions I made. He even offered advice from a personal stance as to what I can do in the future to prevent this from happening. I honestly did not feel like I was talking to a law professional because Bill was so personable, but still very professional. I was very confident in his ability to “know the law”. He answered all of my questions efficiently and from an unbiased viewpoint. He empowered me to make the decisions that were best for me. This was important to me because some people will try to sway you to go along with their point of view. Bill was prompt with completing all appropriate paperwork in my case. His follow-up was always appropriate and on time. He was readily available and assisted during court appearances. He advised me of what I could expect prior to each court appearance. Bill made an embarrassing and daunting task (filing bankruptcy) as best as it could be- and painless if I might add. P.S. Kellie was also amazing and very kind. She relayed messages and got back to me in the event that Bill was unavailable. If you’ve read this far- just call Bill right now and tell him Tia sent you 🙂 read lessTia R.12/20/2019

They were professional, kind, understanding and passed no judgement upon the situation I had gotten into. Heather, the receptionist, was awesome to work with. She was prompt to answer and ensured any questions I had were answered. Mr. Berggren was probably one of the most kind people I have ever met. Filing bankruptcy was incredibly uncomfortable and made feel ashamed, but he looked at me without judgement and made sure we covered all possible options, that were best suited for me. The process itself was “easy” thanks to the Berggren law office. I have a new lease on life and feel confident in my ability to make safe and sound financial decisions. I cannot thank you all enough, you are saviors. read lessErika S.6/14/2021

I had no clue what bankruptcy was or what steps I needed to take in my situation. I was given options and all of the questions that I had were answered in the same day. I don't regret the decision that I made to file bankruptcy that day. I am very satisfied with my decision now that my chapter 13 is finished. The chapter 13 payments were set when I filed and I made my payments with no problem. I would recommend this law firm if you need to make the decision to file bankruptcy. Don't hesitate and give him a call. He is the best. read lessAzariay E.5/20/2016

On my first visit, I had no knowledge of the process and was so ashamed and embarrassed that I cried a lot throughout the appointment. Mr. Berggren, was patient, sympathetic, and answered every question I had - even the stupid ones. He was reassuring and explained everything to me. He didn't rush me, but took his time and sometimes he had to explain things several times. His fee was lower than most, but the service was more than great. During the process, he was always available for questions, and guided me in the best direction that I needed for my circumstances (while taking the time to explain all options). I could not have picked a better attorney and I would recommend his services to anyone. Bankruptcy is a hard decision and used as a last resort, but he made it less stressful by being extremely reassuring throughout the whole process. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. read lessMickey M.5/20/2016

The other day (about 15 months later--and I am no longer a client/paying for his time) I call him for some needed documentation. I was thinking I would leave a voicemail and get the info within a week or so since I am not longer a client and this is probably not going to be his top priority. * Nope! Within 5 min. of calling him directly I had the info I needed in my inbox and he was happy to do it!In 2014 when I started the process, from the moment I sat down with him during the initial consultation, he let me know what to expect and how to plan. From Aug, 2014 until everything was complete in March 2015 Bill was with me every step of the way. He made a difficult decision and process as painless as it could be. If I had a question he would answer it the same day. His staff is professional and courteous, always willing to help and always answering emails quick. He sat with me at court and guided me through everything. There was no hidden fee's or additional cost. Absolutely everything he told me went according to plan. I truly feel like Bill cared about my situation and showed a true compassion for my wellbeing. Bill is not just "another lawyer." He went above and beyond what was ever expected. I am in a much better place now all thanks to his professionalism, help and guidance. read lessJohn A.5/20/2017

The best experience I’ve had in dealing with any attorneyI highly recommend Bill Berggren's law office for anyone considering filing for bankruptcy! About five years ago I had a bad experience with a lawyer in another state (unrelated issue) that unfortunately negatively changed the direction of pretty much my whole life ever since. So the thought of having to deal with a lawyer and the court system all over again, this time with a bankruptcy, scared the bejezuz out of me, and I procrastinated as long as I could possibly wait, because I was paralyzed by my fear that things would turn out differently than promised, like it did in my previous experience.Having moved to Raleigh only recently, I had no local family or friends to ask for lawyer recommendations. So I picked out a few names from website searches and started calling around. The first two places I called pretended to be the lawyer’s office, but I suspect they were both nothing more than answering services to take messages. A paralegal; from one of those offices called me back same-day and we talked for longer than two hours about my case. But by the end of the conversation, neither I nor my husband were convinced she knew what she was talking about, or for that matter, not even fully paying attention to what I was telling her. She kept repeating things she told me earlier within that same conversation, at times contradicting what she said earlier, and asked me many of the same questions three and four times!!Long story short, it was Bill’s office that I called for a second opinion, and to hopefully get some definitive answers to my questions that did not receive answers from the other office. It was Bill himself who answered the phone, which I thought was pretty cool, but then instead of telling me I had to set-up an appointment to discuss details, we dug right in to the details right then. When I hung-up, my husband and I looked at each other said: “He’s the one!”.I expected that the process of filing for bankruptcy would be tedious, stressful, and time-consuming. While it was all of those things, choosing Bill Berggren to represent me was the smartest choice I made. I felt like he was genuinely interested in helping people (me) to get out of bad situations. He is very organized and professional but also very personable, and easy to talk to. Speaking of easy to talk to, I also appreciated the ability to have easy access to him either by email or phone, when I had a question to ask him. The process of filing for bankruptcy requires a lot of fact-finding and producing LOTS of documentation/ paperwork, but Bill was right on top of it, and helped me to keep on top of it as well! I HIGHLY recommend him!Jeffrey S., Raleigh, NC read lessjeff616 R.9/19/2020

He went above and beyond the scope of his needed involvement to listen thoroughly, understand our situation, and provide wise counsel.

I thought it would be a simple process of seeking a lawyer and paying his fee. You wouldn't believe how personal and professional this man is. Yes I met him in 2015 and he handled my case with great detail but I also dropped by his office this past month. He took the time to sit down with me, without asking for anything, and map out my issue and resolution. He likes to draw illustrations on his pad when he's discussing your case. 🙂 You get a lesson in law, history, etc. I ended up staying an hour longer than anticipated and listened to Mr. Berggren speak. You have to spend time with him. He's incredibly smart and has some fascinating stories. If you meet him, please send me a comment. I would love to hear if I was right! read lessSherry A.6/20/2019

First of all the staff is Professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and respectful. The Legal Assistant Mai Foulkrod helped me with my case.

I have been a full time College Student this past year and decided ultimately that Chapter 7 was my best option. I will explain it this way...You will not feel in the dark. Mai is kind, helpful, hardworking, optimistic, thorough, with many years of experience so there's no worry about anything coming back on you. Her duty is to prepare everything for the Lawyer, in which she was personally trained by Berggren alongside her degree. Their success rate is over 99% from what I've heard.
