I was introduced to Jon Clarke through another BK Attorney who could not handle my case. Right after my first phone conversation with Jon I felt at ease and confident that I had made the wright decision. Jon guides you through your case and is there whenever you need him.
My case involved thousands of dollars in credit card debt, personal loans and a Townhouse. I also own my own business with a lot of personally guaranteed debt. Needless to say, I was very stressed and confused.
When it came time for our Trustee/Creditor meeting, we were in and out in 30 minutes (that was for 3 of Jon’s clients). When we sat down in the main room where the Trustee was she immediately acknowledged Jon’s presence with a friendly statement. When it was our time to sit in front of the Trustee she continued to be friendly with Jon and said, “Jon, did you get my referral of that doctor that needed your help?” She actually refers clients to Jon! I couldn’t believe it! At this point, I knew I made the wright decision and everything was worth it!
I have already referred people to Jon and I hope you make the wright decision to do so also! In addition, Jon’s assistant Phyllis has been with him since 1979!! That pretty much say’s it all!
We could have gone with a less expensive lawyer but Jon gave us the peace of mind necessary to guide us through this very difficult time. His thoroughness, patience and proper handling of everything we went through makes him someone I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone!
Jon represented me in a $19 Million plus Chapter 7. No one shoed for the hearing, no questions, it was slick running. If you want the best, Jon will make you a non-debtor for a very reasonable fee.
We were holding our own, slowly paying down our debt and then….all of the credit card companies jacked our interest rates above 24%, like they did to everyone across the country. Without warning or notifying me, Chase cancelled the credit card I was using to travel out of state for my job – even though my payments were current. We were paying out over $1000 / month in medical bills, and then the final straw – my job ended – for over 7 months. Our savings were already exhausted due to medical bills from a lengthy illness that eventually led to disability. We finally gained some financial relief, because Medicare / social security became available, but it was a painful and lengthy process to qualify – and too late to be of much value when I lost my job. We had no idea what to do – sell the house? File for bankruptcy?
We didn’t know, but started searching the internet for bankruptcy information and lawyers to see what we could learn. We found Jon Clarke’s website among others, but what drew us to Jon’s site is that I wasn’t full of hype – it was a no-nonsense site, that provided enough information to suggest what we should/could do next, AND I didn’t start to be stalked with annoying emails 10 minutes after I visited the site like I did from the others. Without question, Jon was true to the impression I captured from his website – no nonsense, not a used car salesman, and he was right up front and accurate about all costs. We paid what he said it would cost the first time I met him. By the time I talked to Jon in person, we had already put every dime we had left into making the house payments. We had to borrow the money we needed to pay for Jon’s services and court fees, but compared to the alternatives, Jon was by far the lowest priced option.
The service Jon provided to us in preparing for and guiding us though our Chapter 7 bankruptcy was exceptional – not just good, because when we went to court, everything was in place; we were prepared to answer questions, all documents were in order; there were no surprises. Our day in court clearly demonstrated Jon’s experience and expertise with the entire process, but what really stood out as Jon began presenting our case in court, was the court’s familiarity with Jon as an attorney. Jon knew all of the magistrates in the bankruptcy court, and intentionally timed the filing of our paperwork with the court to give us a better chance of appearing before one who he knew would be fair and reasonable in applying the law to our situation. Because Jon understands the law and how it applied to us, we were successful in having our debt discharged, able to remain in our home, able to retain most of what we owned, and able to go forward with our lives without the worry and harassment we received from out creditors.
What we liked most about working with Jon Clarke is his honesty, integrity, and professionalism. Without question, what you see is what you get, and he’s very good at what he does. It took us over a month to get all of the paperwork together that had to be loaded into the electronic filing system, and we almost missed the deadline for filing at the optimal time, but Jon and his office staff made the effort over and above what we could reasonably expect to get the documents entered and filed with the court on time. We can’t thank Jon and his staff enough for what they did on our behalf – we received excellent value for our investment in his services. It’s been 4 years since our debt was discharged, and we are still in our home and still recovering from an impossible situation. We are convinced that without Jon Clarke’s expertise and guidance, our situation would still be impossible.
Jon Clark represented me in a bankruptcy action a couple of years ago and I can tell you as a former attorney myself that Jon is better than just good. He is great. Jon handled my case exceedingly well and got results for me that were exceptional. Jon is knowledgable, easy to work with, diligent, smart and a great human being. Rare qualities for an attorney of his caliber. I can not recommend jon too highly. If you need a bankruptcy attorney you better call Jon.
I contacted Jon at the very last minute prior to a potential Court Summons regarding a debt. He listened to me carefully and professionally. Jon immediately started working on my case. Within a matter of hours he was able to reach a resolution for me. Cannot possibly say enough about this man. His knowledge, his honor and his sense of urgency. A phenomenal attorney. Highly, highly recommend Jon B Clarke!
Jon was helpful from the very first step all the way through until my case cleared. Everything was explained clearly and with his experience, there was never anything that he didn’t anticipate and prepare me for. I hope no one ever has to go through the trouble of bankruptcy, but if you do, there is no one better to walk through it with you.
I called Mr Clarke seeking legal advise. He spent a good deal of time with me to understand my situation. He was very up front, honest and knowledgeable. Highly recommend
Jon Clarke SAVED ME from a very unfortunate situation that my ex-husband left me in. Not only had I filed for divorce, but I had zero financial help due to my ex being fired from his job, stripped of his professional license, and leaving me with a mountain of debt, a home to care for and 3 children to provide for… all on my small income. I felt like there was no way out… like everything I had worked my entire life for was falling apart due to the poor choices of someone else. This is when I started researching the possibility of bankruptcy. I reached out to Jon Clarke and he was very responsive and set up a meeting with me very quickly. He thoroughly explained my options and provided me with the moral support that I needed during this extremely daunting time. He very efficiently managed my case and after the Trustee Meeting, it was determined that I had a no asset report – meaning that I had to pay ZERO to the trustee!! I got to keep my home and all of my equity in the home. Jon worked hard to win this outcome for me…. I was the best possible outcome and I was allowed to keep my home for my children. One year post bankruptcy, I just re-financed my home at an excellent rate and I purchased a car!! I am well on my way back to financial security and I owe it all to Jon Clarke. Please do not trust a situation like this to just any attorney out there!! You need someone that you feel safe with and that will get you the second chance you deserve!! YOU deserve the best… Jon Clarke!!
Jon represented my wife and I in a personal bankruptcy driven by debts from a failed business. He did a great job getting us through the process with outstanding results. He did a fantastic job of keeping us informed all the way up to the end. I highly recommend him!
The downturn economy from 2008 finally caught up with me, my wife and kids and in 2011. We were forced to look at filing bankruptcy. I had lost my position as a VP and my wife could not find work. We spoke with a number of BK attorneys and were referred by one to Jon Clarke. We had our first phone call with Jon in June of 2011. In Sept 2011 we filed Chapter 7. The house was steadily moving to foreclosure at the same time and our finances were in ruin. Jon calmly and confidently walked us through what we could expect. When we finally met with the trustee and Jon was there and handled it like the pro he is. While filing was not something we were proud of it was our only shot at rebuilding the our lives. In Feburary 2012 our case was dismissed and we could breathe again. I finally acquired a new position in Sept 13 and my wife got a job as well. We saved our home in November 2014 with a refinance program. The lien on the second was dropped by the bank in December 2014. While our credit is not what it was we still were able to buy a car and do the little things that lets you know you are alive. I am sharing this because while it may not look like you can survive bankruptcy you need to know you can and if you put it in Jon Clarkes capable hands you will in the end have your life back and a new friend and advisore who really cares. I highly recommend Jon to anyone considering bankruptcy.
Jon helped me start to finish with my bankruptcy and was very considerate of my financial situation. He prepped me for everything coming ahead was was pleasant to talk and communicate with. I hired Jon based on a referral from a friend and am very happy with the outcome.
Jon did an excellent job for me and my wife. Would highly recommend him. Very personalized work for us.
Jon was not referred to me. I had never filed bankruptcy before so I found him on my own. He did an amazing job for me. Very knowledgeable.. and held my hand through the entire process. Amazing! Thanks Jon.
Jon was incredible. Efficient and at the same time highly knowledgeable. He walked me through each step of the process with precision and compassion. I would highly recommend him in the future and will do so.
I needed help during a very difficult time. Jon Clarke came highly recommended to me from a dear friend. He did not disappoint!!! Jon is very knowledgeable and kind. I truly felt that he had my best interest at heart.
Jon was very helpful & knowledgable
I can’t even begin to say how much I appreciate Jon and Phyllis and the endless hours they spent on our case. The thought of bankruptcy was incredibly challenging for my husband and I. Just in the initial conversation with Jon he calmed my nerves and helped me establish a checklist of items I needed to get handled before we had an initial meeting. They have put together a very clear and easy to follow plan that helped us through the process. I had so many questions for Jon and each one he answered with a wealth of knowledge and was patient with me each step of the way. Because of Jon’s hard work and due diligence we have now been able to start a new season of our life. Thank you again!!
I just want to take this opportunity to once again say, “Thank You” Jon and Phyllis for helping my husband and I through what I know to be one of the most difficult times in our lives. We were in denial the we were facing bankruptcy and I’m sure one of the more difficult clients. Jon was so reassuring and informative throughout the process and helped us realize that there really is normalcy after bankruptcy! My husband and I are a month away from our discharge being two years old and we are preparing to buy a home. We have established good credit again, have a growing savings account and looking forward to our future…something I couldn’t allow myself to even consider two years ago. Sincerely,
It appears that soon we will see final closure to our Bankruptcy, that is if the IRS actually did send our tax refund to our Trustee yesterday. My wife and I can say without hesitation that you provided outstanding advice and service in the successful outcome of our Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We understood from the very beginning what our cost would be, what our risks could be, and what service you could, and would provide. We paid exactly what you said we would – we encountered no “hidden” surprises. It was truly a pleasure to work with you and your staff.
Your web site is what brought us to your office. Unlike many of the others, your site had useful information that helped us decide what we should do. It wasn’t a sales pitch. Even after visiting your site several times, we weren’t harassed with email messages from you, like we were from the other sites we visited.
Below is part of an email I sent to you last October. I want to make sure you have it to show your prospective clients should you so choose, because I know this for sure – that if your prospective clients don’t select you to represent them, they will have selected the wrong legal counsel.
Thank you for everything you did on our behalf. You made a very painful process far more painless than we could even hope to imagine. Sincerely,
I have no complaints or concerns about how things were done. Janie and Phyllis were always pleasant, professional, very responsive to any of my questions or needs. An amazing staff. The process I experienced certainly was very new to me, intimidating and somewhat scary. All three of you made the process easy and made me comfortable. Mr. Clarke, it was a pleasure to meet you and thank you for your help. I have no reservations about recommending you and certainly will do so. Currently everything seems to be fine with my financial matters. Thank you all
For all the possible issues that could have occurred in a $20 million bankruptcy, the fact that NONE of them occurred is prima fascia that John and Phyllismade sure theinformation was correct, complete and not overly detailed at the same time. I appreciate the professionalism and would never hesitate to recommend your team to anyone in the position of considering their financial options.
~ Bill, Castle Rock
I thought you and your staff were great. You made a difficult situation bearable. Your web site was very helpful and Janie was great. When I called in to your office she was so helpful and reassuring and really convinced me that you were the attorney for us. Phyliss was a delight to work with and so efficient and I can see how you depend on her. Jon, you really helped us and we will always be grateful—and we have turned down all of the credit card offers that we have had. Again, Thank You and your staff for all of your help.
Looking into filling chapter is a very complex and tough decision when you feel there is no way out. The TEAM you have makes it comfortable even though it is a very stressful, demining, tough decision to make. The web site and the information that is needed for the first phone call is very user-friendly. Jon is a very competent, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Janie makes you feel at HOME with extreme comfort and very personable. Phyllis is un believable in putting all the data together and makes it very easy knowing exactly what is needed. Phyllis is also willing to take calls and answer questions with extreme ease and knowledge. Jon’s quality is amazing. There is not enough I can say that would explain the work that he put in my case. It was absolutely a feeling that I was his only client and he was always available. You get what you pay for and I believe that JON CLARKE and his staff are THE BEST at what they profession. I interviewed four other firms and none of them hold a candle to JON CLARKE and his staff!!!!

~CD, mid-size Denver law firm
Our first telephone conversation.- Mr. Clarke was very helpful with our special circumstances and was very straightforward with what we had to do. Janie’s helpfulness as receptionist. – she is very nice and helpful Phyllis’ efficiency as the legal assistant collecting data and answering questions. – she handled all of our information very professionally and was also very helpful. Jon’s quality and quantity of advice concerning your status, scenarios and strategy. – he was awesome. I had a ton of questions and we had a special circumstance and he was very helpful with his advice and his expertise. Though this isn’t something you hope to recommend to friends, if we ever have friends in this situation I would most definitely recommend Mr. Clarke to them.
~LN, Arapahoe County
I could not have been happier with your efforts on my behalf. Your website provides current and relevant information regarding foreclosure and the process. I found it easily by searching online and was impressed by the quick response, once I initiated contact. I felt Jon, Janie and Phyllis all to be very helpful, professional and very knowledgeable. Although it was a very difficult time for me, I knew I was in good hands. Jon’s strategy was excellent and everything progressed smoothly. I have not experienced any matters following the discharge which will be a year ago, in April. My thanks to all of you and know that I would highly recommend you at any time. BestRegards,
Theinitial prospect of bankruptcy was embarrassing and shameful to me. Your professional and experienced demeanor were calming; helping me to face the inevitable. The straight-forward presentation of forms and their deadlines simplified the filing process. I was informed on what to expect at every juncture.My concerns were promptly addressed. Thank you all! I am able to hold my head up and begin again! Kindest Regards,
Jon is direct and good at what he does. He knows the How, When and Who of filing. He makes no bones opinion about Credit Grantors and how consumers can get caught up in their credit granting jaws and get bleed to death. Jon you could probably win the Grumpy Lawyer award but you would also be nominated for the best at what you do. You are a no nonsense get to point individual.
~JJ, Castle Rock
I want you to know how much your understanding, kindness & care meant to me. You gave me the strength and courage to handle a difficult situation and keep my self esteem intact. I am beginning a new job next week and a new life and I hope I can help others the way you helped me. With gratitude,
Phyllis continues to excel at her duties, ensuring that everything goes well and that clients are effectively and efficiently served.
The website was pretty instrumental in my decision to call Mr. Clarke. It was very professional and highlighted his expertise very well. Mr. Clarke was very helpful with our special circumstances and was very straightforward with what we had to do. Jon was awesome. I had a ton of questions and we had a special circumstance and he was very helpful with his advice and his expertise. Though this isn’t something you hope to recommend to friends, if we ever have friends in this situation I would most definitely recommend Mr. Clarke to them.
I want to thank you for all the work you put into my chapter 7 bankruptcy case. I have never had to go through anything like this before, and hope to never have to again. I could not be happier with the outcome. I was so relieved to hear back from you that the trustee had closed my case and I owe no more money. Thank you so much for all the work and kindness you put into my case. Although, I hope no one I know has to go through this I will be sure to recommend you to them. Best,
We would like to thank you and your staff during this difficult time in our life having to file bankruptcy. You and your staff made things very easy for us in helping us understand that things happen in life and does not have to put a stress on moving forward with our life. After contacting your office with our questions we had about what we needed to do to start the process when we came into your office was not embarrassing or painful like we thought it was going to be, and our fears were calmed by you and your staff telling us everything was going to be ok and we were not the only people that have fallen on hard times and not meet our commitment with our creditors. Moving forward through the process was made easy for us since your team has it down to a easy format that anyone can understand without the mumbo jumbo legal terms clouding the process. Having a support team from your office is one thing I would recommend to any one that needs help going through bankruptcy since this is one of the hardest thing we had to say we just could not deal with the mountain of bills and phone calls from creditors and that stopped when we came to you for help with a few simple words from you. Have them call Jon Clark your attorney when they called our home or work. After that they never bothered us again! Thanks Jon, we can answer the phone at night, and sleep again! ~J & C, Douglas County
