I’m sure it is not an easy place to be in right now. Maybe you’re at the stage where creditors are calling and harassing you; maybe you’re transferring money from creditor to creditor to cover the minimum payments; or maybe you’re anticipating that you will not be able to pay your creditors very shortly.

The best decision I've made was to contact David Sklar & Associates, they are experts in this matters and also have dedicated Licensed Counsellors that provide the best customer support, like Rhoda Lewis, who I highly recommend. She worked tirelessly on my case, explaining ever detail to me willingly. She demonstrates a true interest in her clients. I appreciate how she patiently walked me through what to do, step by step. I now have control over my finances, as a result my life is much more peaceful and I can focus on what matters. Thank you!

She was able to answer all the quesions that I had regarding my debt. At the end of our meetings, I felt that there is a heavy burden lifted from my shoulders. I recommend Chistine to anyone who is looking into debt relief.

I had a good experience with Jackie. Making appointment to see her was easy and follow up was great. I appreciated the detailed information she gave and the clear explanation of the options I had. While I landed on this company without anyone's recommendation, I will be happy to recommend their services to those who need them.

The service that was provided to me from Trina at David Sklar and Associates was nothing but superb! I was referred to them through family, and Trina was nothing but understanding and so so so helpful! Every part of the process was smooth and efficient and she explained everything to me so I would be able to understand the process. Can’t believe the weight that has been lifted off my shoulders. Thank you so so much Trina!

I’m so glad that I spoke to Rhoda. I was nervous having to claim bankruptcy, but Rhoda is very resourceful and has a wonderful way of putting you at ease. I felt like I was speaking to my best friend. Rhoda from the bottom of my heart thank you for your help and kindness it goes along way. Linda Bennett

I was absolutely terrified of admitting I needed help and was in a tough position where my best option was to file for bankruptcy. As someone with severe anxiety it was one of the hardest calls I had to make but once I spoke with Trina at David Sklar she immediately made me feel at ease and like I was in good hands. I mostly dealt with Trina and Eva who were so kind and communicative throughout the whole process and made it as painless as possible.I did briefly speak with a couple of other associates from time to time and they were also equally as lovely. The reviews for this company obviously say a lot about these guys and it rings true. I’m not someone who usually writes lengthy reviews but I am happy to recommend David Sklar and associates for anything. Thank you guys for always treating your clients like human beings and always being available for questions or concerns.

I’m finally debt free! I made the right decision by contacting David Sklar to help me with my debts. Grateful to his Associates, especially Cori Naron, she’s very approachable, knowledgeable and kind. She indeed helped me succeed (with her advices and experiences) to pay off my balance before my due date 😇. Her office at St. Clair Ave. West is very accessible as well. I can now focus with my other goals - for I am a mother of Four….
