"I had contacted another attorney for his services, but he was not to direct and he appeared to be somewhat unsure of his answers. When my wife and I first contacted Marco, he appeared to be a very knowledgeable person and was able to answer our questions without any hesitations. I am happy with his services and I will recommend him to anyone. Thank You Marco for your help and please continue to be the type of attorney you are and I feel you will be very successful."

"I highly recommend attorney Marco Antonio Torres, who is very professional and is very dedicated to his practice. From my first appointment he gave me all of the information and confidence to make my decision to file a bankruptcy. He always had time for my questions and concerns and would personally answer any doubt I had about my case and the legal process that is bankruptcy. Being a bilingual attorney was also a great plus. When we arrived at court he made sure that all of my concerns were met and had all of my affairs in place and I didn't have to worry about anything because he had already taken care of it all. I would like to thank him for helping me and my family during this very difficult time in our lives. I wish you much success."
