Testimonials

Dear Tim,

Thank you so much for assisting us with our bankruptcy. It was a tough decision for us to make, but we know we will be better off in the long run. You and your team were very accommodating which made the whole process for us a lot easier than expected. We hope you had a great holiday and a very happy new year.

Hi Tim,

Things have been going very well since you helped us with loan modification, which was a lifesaver, and we will be forever indebted to you! It's amazing we've just completed 5 years (has it really been that long ago?!). Our rate went up from the original 2% to 3% last month (and we're due to top out next year at 4%) but that's still manageable. Because we were never late and never missed a payment in the 5-year period, we qualified for the HAMP $5,000 "pay for success" forgiveness bonus off of our mortgage.

Many thanks to you! If you've helped others like us, you can't imagine how much you have helped change people's lives for the better.

Many thanks and best wishes to you and your family for the holiday and New Year in 2017.

Thanks, Tim!

Cheers,
H. and S. D


Tim was great as he helped me sell my condo through a short sale. I had two mortgages with two different companies and he helped to coordinate everything and ensure that it went smoothly. I questioned everything and needed to know what was happening at all times and Tim, thankfully talked me through the whole process. He even made the time to get me in on the same day when I made my husband call him because I was beyond overwhelmed with my situation. Thankful to have had his help!


Timothy Pletter helped me with my bankruptcy case. He was very kind and patient. His ladies in the office were very accommodating as well. Will recommend to anyone who has to file bankruptcy.


This was all new and scary to us but Mr. Pletter was very thorough with reviewing everything. Whenever we had a question, he would get back to us right away.


I want to truly thank you and Samantha for everything! You have made a horrible experience almost painless! I have my credit score up to 715 already with a (non-secured) credit card. I have been and will continue to recommend you to anyone struggling financially!

Attorney Pletter handled my case with professionalism and understanding during a very difficult time. I was made aware what every step of the case involved and he never hesitated to answer my questions or return my calls to ease my mind. I highly recommend Attorney Pletter.

Tim Pletter is a true professional! I must commend Tim on his Legal Assistant, Samantha too, she was great through the entire process! We had a good 8 inches of bills that she organized and compiled into an understandable format without a zillion duplicates that I had provided. When I referred a collections call to their office I never heard back from them (despite dragging MY feet for almost a year to finally file). We were leery of the Trustee's meeting but it was smooth as silk! Tim had everything in order, prepared us for all questions and made it painless. We were in and out of the courthouse in an hour! We will gladly refer Tim to friends and family that need legal assistance without hesitation. Thanks Tim & Samantha!! We are off to a clean start!!


Sound advice. Goes the extra mile
I turned to Tim Pletter for advice when I was contemplating opening my own business in 2014. He guided me through the options and filings required and took care of the paperwork quickly. He also recommended an excellent accountant to assist with my financial questions. I have since used Tim for personal advice on estate management as well. I would recommend Tim Pletter without hesitation.

Tim goes waaay above and beyond. He's always available. He scrutinized our situation, gave us a bunch of helpful recommendations, (things we could do to strengthen our case), and they all paid off! Couldn't be happier. Hope to never be in this position again, but if we are, we will not hesitate to call Tim for help. And it helps that he's a totally relatable guy that you just want to add to your contacts list.


Dear Tim & Staff,

Just a note of "thanks" for your professionalism and hard work in helping us through our bankruptcy process. We are very happy with the outcome and are anxious to move forward with a better knowledge and understanding of financial management. We’d also like to congratulate you on making "The Best of Fairfield County" 2016 list of professionals. That’s wonderful! Thank you again and have a nice summer!’

With Gratitude,

Timothy Pletter was referred to me at a very difficult time in my life! I am extremely grateful to him and his staff for all the help, knowledge and kindness I received! Timothy made an extremely painful and confusing time very manageable! His confidence and wealth of knowledge leads you through the awful time of foreclosure with ease and a sense of peace. No one ever wants to lose their home but when an attorney can step in, advise you, educate you and give you options there is a great sense of relief. Timothy Pletter is a wonderful attorney and the best to have represent you!

Liz


Dear Mr. Pletter

I am writing to thank you for all of your help in my foreclosure proceeding. Your efforts and counsel helped me to stay in my home. I genuinely appreciate your candor and support in such a difficult time. I will surely refer you to anyone I know needing assistance in such matters.

Sincerely,
KJ

Tim,

I'm so grateful to you and all your hard work! You have had such a huge impact on my life! Losing my home stinks but you've guided me and helped me understand things and make difficult decisions. With all your help my daughter has 1 year of school taken care of and I am picking up a much needed new car today! The icing on the cake is we have the holidays in our home and I have another 6 months to regroup and save. So I really hope you have a wonderful new year with your family, because you've made mine!

My husband and I recently had to make the tough decision of filing bankruptcy.

We own a small business which got hit hard from the hurricanes and winter storms like everyone else in our area. I spent years fighting with Bank of America trying to modify our mortgage. They refused to help us because we paid our mortgage every month. So we decided to short sell. But after 2 yrs of attempting to short sell (got 4 offers, but Bank of America did nothing for months and each buyer eventually moved on), we had enough and went to Attorney Pletter for help.

We spent our adult life getting our credit scores over 750 and now we were opting to foreclose on our first home. We walked into Attorney Tim Pletter's office for the first time last year feeling ashamed, embarrassed, depressed, nervous and were probably at the worst point our marriage could get.

When we left his office we felt HOPEFUL for the first time in YEARS. Tim was very straightforward. He didn't sugarcoat the situation and got us to focus on what was most important and showed us how to handle each issue.

He made sure our choices didn't force us to lose our business. He was patient with our own marital misunderstandings and communication faults. And he helped us get our life back. We foreclosed on our home in November and are already experiencing an entirely new life-including a stronger marriage and positive relationship with money. There is no way we could possibly be where we are today if it wasn't for Tim, Samantha and Donna.

I obviously recommend Attorney Pletter 100%

Tim,

I just wanted to thank you again for helping me with this. I just checked my credit score and it is on the rise and I am so happy! I'll be able to refinance my car at a much lower interest rate and rebuild and all will eventually be right again. I have worried about this for 4 years now and had no way out of it until you took my case so a huge THANK YOU!!! You help a lot of people out and that shows a lot of your character. I'd recommend you anytime. Wishing you a wonderful summer!

Sincerely,

TR


I owe you a big thank you for your good services and the professional way you handled my various situations. You also gave me sound advice which I sincerely appreciate since I do not have anyone whom I can confide in. As you know, I was really standing at the edge of an abyss and with your guidance and cool handling you saved me from having to leave my home.

Best regards to you and Samantha, who was always helpful and friendly.

Attorney Pletter,

I wanted to send this letter as an acknowledgment of my appreciation of you and your law firm. You, as well as your staff, Samantha and Donna; were congenial, knowledgeable, and professional. You were able to determine from my financial situation that a bankruptcy was needed and after looking at the amount of unsecured debt I had been struggling with, we filed chapter 7 bankruptcy.

You provided direction, guidance, and counseling during a much needed time.

As I'm sure you are well aware bankruptcies are a delicate subject and often times quite embarrassing, I never felt humiliated dealing with you. While I struggled within myself with feelings of shame and distress, I was assured by you that "things happen; you're not the only one." This was paramount in calming and reassuring me during such a stressful time. Thank you for your professionalism, your expertise, your understanding, your time and your patience.

I recommend you to anyone going through financial difficulty as I have been.

I sincerely appreciate having worked with you and your law firm,

RC

Thanks, Tim!

The year 2015 has started off surprisingly well for me.

Mostly because of your help! I know that without your good services, I would not have received approval of my loan modification. You understood my situation and your advice was invaluable. You handled my needs very professionally and you kept on top of getting the Bank to act. I appreciate that you appeared with me and supported me at the various Mediation Meetings.

To say thank you is not enough! I will recommend your good services to anyone I know now and in the future.

Hi Tim,

I received the copy of the decision of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court that you sent me indicating that I'm discharged from all the debts I have listed in my Chapter 7.

I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude for the exceptional service you provided as my lawyer for my bankruptcy case. Thank you very much for your timely responses whenever I had questions about the case. You go beyond your working hours just to answer my questions and I believe that kind of service is what makes you stand out as a bankruptcy lawyer. It shows that you care for your clients and you know that answering their questions any time of the day will help them keep their peace of mind as they go through one of the most stressful situations that life has thrown at them.

I'm so glad that Nolo.com led me to your office. Your outstanding record of excellence on bankruptcy at an affordable price has really been a blessing to me. Thank you for guiding me throughout the entire course and for giving me peace of mind with your confident answers. It really helped me lessen my worries during the filing.

Thank you for making me one of your clients who gets to see the light at the end of the tunnel and for helping me start fresh again. I will definitely take advantage of this to better my financial situation in the future.

Sincerely,

MQ


Attorney Pletter was both informative and attentive during my process of filing for personal bankruptcy in late 2013. It was a difficult and sad chapter in my life and he made me realize that in my case this was a sound and solid next step for me to take in order for me to recover and move on with my life. His office returned my calls and emails promptly when I had questions regarding each phase of the process. I would highly recommend Attorney Pletter.

I used Attorney Pletter back in 2012 when I had to file for bankruptcy following a divorce. I could not have been more pleased with my selection. This was a very difficult and emotional decision for me, Attorney Pletter was extremely helpful in providing me with enough information to determine if bankruptcy was the right decision for me.

Once I had made the decision to proceed, his knowledge and attention to detail made the entire process much less overwhelming. I am thankful to have found such a professional and understanding attorney.

After my divorce, I started looking for a lawyer when I realized bankruptcy may be my only option. I first looked at a large law firm in New Haven. After meeting with them for a half hour, I felt like "just another client". I was hurried through an interview of sorts, and left feeling like I bared my soul to someone who look at me like a number not a person. I left despondent.

I started googling lawyers in the Milford Area. I found Timothy Pletter. I made an appointment and met with him, not an assistant, not an intern, not a paralegal, actually him. At no point did I feel like I was just a number. I felt like a human being and I was able to leave his office with my dignity intact. This feeling of respect never changed throughout the process. I am not necessarily happy but definitely relieved to be just finished with this bankruptcy. I would strongly recommend Tim Pletter to anyone going through this humbling process. His support made it possible to get through this.

There is NO ONE that I'd trust more to handle such a difficult decision than Attorney Pletter. A consummate professional and goes the extra mile for his clients. He never tried to promise anything that couldn't be delivered and was there every step of the way. After all I went through with other, less experienced attorneys...I'm kicking myself for not using Tim first!

Just had to take this time out to thank you for your input...We received the notarized package from BAC congratulating us on successfully completing the Making Home Affordable Loan Modification.. Enclosed was a signed permanent loan modification agreement.
This has been a 5 year trek....Between good advice & our Faith we have finally reached our goal!

Thanks again

When you need a business service from someone and that service requires you to explain personal details about your life, it can feel invasive. So, when we made the decision to file for bankruptcy we knew that there would be a lot of questions asked. We were referred to Tim by an acquaintance. During our first phone call to his office I explained that "my wife and I" wanted to file for bankruptcy. At our first appointment, neither Tim nor his staff ever once showed the remotest level of discomfort in working with us.

When Tim informed us that because federal law did not recognize same sex marriages, we would have to file bankruptcy separately, it was very disappointing. You never get used to hearing that there are laws that expressly prohibit the acknowledgement of your marriage. Then, thanks to the efforts of countless people in our community, while we were going through the process of filing, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was declared unconstitutional. I remember this day well because Tim sent us an email the day it was overturned saying that it was likely that we would be able to file as a married couple. We will remain grateful to Tim for making a difficult process easier by being a thoughtful person and always respectful.

Bottom line about Tim is that he reminds us that people change way before laws do.

Grateful clients, 2014


Dear Tim:
I can only begin to thank you for all of your help. Your assistant broke the news to me on the way to my parents' house, so there were good feelings all around. Since then, my fiancé has added me an authorized signer to a couple of cards, establishing some credit So far, I have been keeping in budget, even with the holidays coming up. It is truly a wonderful feeling knowing that my finances are finally going to be able to move along in positive parallel to my life purpose and value system. Your professionalism and the professionalism of your office is something all organizations should aspire toward. Your expertise helped me to feel well-guided and educated. I will certainly refer anyone who may need difficult financial advice to you. Please be well, and have a safe and happy holiday season. For me, this will be the first one in some time, where I will not be looking in the rearview mirror come January.

Best Wishes,

Dear Tim,

Dear Tim, Erin & Donna:

My Husband and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Tim, for helping us through the most financially difficult time in our lives. When considering filing for bankruptcy, getting past the embarrassment and shame was, alone, mentally exhausting. After our first meeting with you, Tim, your gentle way of explaining the process helped calm the situation we were about to face. As you began to put things in perspective, we grew a greater understanding that this is what we needed to do at this point in our lives. Every question we had was answered quickly and efficiently by all of you. Once we obtained our discharge, we were so relieved.

We appreciate all you have done for us. We all take something out of life's experiences and always hope to get something positive out of it. With this learned experience, we will make sure we stay dedicated to responsible spending. Tim, we can't possibly thank you enough.

Respectfully yours,
Jill & Dominick


Dear Attorney Pletter,

Had I not connected with you back in September I would have surely been in a state of despair right about now. Since I last met with you, I have been at ease knowing I made the right decision in hiring you to represent me. I did in fact see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Warm regards,

Dear Attorney Pletter,

Well it is finally finished. I'm sure that you are glad to close this file and I am very happy that I don't have to think about this anymore. Please extend my heartfelt gratitude to Jennifer and all your staff for pulling together all that was necessary for us to reach the final outcome of my goal.

It was my pleasure and good fortune to work with all of you.

Most Sincerely,

Dear Tim,

I can't express to you the full extent of my appreciation for all you did here for me. With great relief, I will always be grateful! Thank you for being not only a wonderful Attorney but also for being a great guy!

Dear Attorney Pletter,

I just want to let you know how grateful we are that we found an honest lawyer. Thank you for working as much as you can to ease our burden.

I will be writing a letter to our old attorney who kept putting off our case that jeopardized the dead line on settling.

From the bottom of our heart, thank you so much!

Tim,

Sharon & I wanted to thank you for shepherding us through our recent legal procedure.

We realize that the scale of our income was a bit outside of what you usually work with. Your patience in fielding our questions and concerns as well as your advice on presenting our application were most appreciated.

Now that we have received our discharge, we are looking forward to setting our financial house in order and getting on with our lives. We know that we would not have had this opportunity without your assistance. Saying "thank you" does not seem enough, but in this case it's very heartfelt.

We wish you and your staff only the best for 2010 and in the years to come.

Sincerely,
S & S


Dear Mr. Pletter,

In today's society I know that many Law Firms have become very cold and unconcerned with the emotional well being of their clients. I am very happy to have discovered that your Law Firm does not fit that description at all; I only have good things to say about my experience with doing business with you.

I had come into your office the other day, and without an appointment I may add, I was frantic about my electricity being disconnected, you took the time to listen to me, and you then asked your assistant to help me get it turned back on.

As I then began to literally fall apart in the office with your assistant, she began to share with me some of her own personal life experiences with a situation much like my own. For the first time in a long time I did not feel so alone, and even a bit of the pain I had felt in my heart had been lifted as well. This woman showed more compassion, and genuine concern for me than the people in my own family have, and I just would like to say May God Bless you every day for your kindness. People just do not take the time to reach out to people in need as often as they could, but she did and it may not have seemed like much to her, but it meant the world to me.

Mr. Pletter, you and your staff are a credit to the Law Firms in our community, and I do pray that you all will prosper, as well as find much joy in your lives.

Sincerely,
M. S.


Dear Attorney Pletter,

I would like to thank-you for all your thoughtfulness, preciseness and timely effort in helping me during and after my Chapter Seven procedures.

Just a brief update, I am enclosing the installment agreement and payments I made with the internal Revenue Services. Also, my letter of confirmation to accept my offer made to the State of Connecticut.

I am getting a secured credit card with Bank of America to start rebuilding my credit and obtaining a mutual fund of four hundred dollars for thee months as a credit rebuilder.

Again, I thank you for being a gem of an attorney.

Sincerely,
S.E.


I used Tim Pletter for a bankruptcy in 2010. His professionalism and empathetic demeanor made this trying and humbling time manageable. I never felt like a number to him or any of his staff.

The absolute proof of his professionalism came during for my hearing for the bankruptcy. While waiting my turn, I saw other people sit before the trustee. They all had problems. I got a bit nervous. When my time to sit before the trustee came, there were no problems. This was all due to the meticulous preparation of my case by Tim and his staff.

Even though my experience with Tim has been limited to bankruptcy, I will definitely use him for my wills and any future real estate transactions.

L.P.


Attorney Pletter, Donna and Office Staff:

I came in approximately 18 months ago with a financial issue wanting to file Chapter 7. I knew my case wasn't going to be easy due to my income and credit card debt. After a couple of meetings and bringing in all the documents needed, Attorney Pletter sat down with me and came up with a game plan. After Tim explained everything to me, I knew I was in good hands. I thought my case might have been one of the most difficult to do, but it was handled very professionally and beyond my expectations.

I really appreciate all the great help. It was one of the best experiences I've had and I would trust this firm to handle anyone's finances.

Thanks again,
R.J.


Dear Tim,

We want to thank you and your staff at Ambrogio, Pletter & Associates for all your help and professional service in our bankruptcy case. Today is a great day, as you well know, as we are officially discharged from bankruptcy. It is a day of serious relief and happiness for us and a large portion of that is due to you and your staff.

You, Tim, have been a very professional but ultimately caring lawyer through the whole process which is contrary to the stereotypical shark lawyer. You took our case seriously and held back nothing. Thank you for guiding us with the best advice (and some needed humor) throughout the past few months. We really appreciate how quickly and efficiently you and your excellent staff handled our case. This helped us to feel little emotional pain, aside from the beginning shock, throughout as a result.

We are happy to say that today, we are not ashamed of filing bankruptcy and are looking forward to a credit card free future where we can save and ensure the best life for our children and ourselves.

I hope that this letter helps out other people who are sitting in your office today and in the same boat as we were just 4 months ago. Bankruptcy is not the end of the world, but the beginning of a new and absolutely more responsible life for the millions of families like us across our nation.

Thank you again.

Most sincerely,
M. & K. K.


Tim,

Thanks for everything. You've been amazing and have made all of this so effortless on my end. Deployment, divorce, moving, etc is a lot and I appreciate all of your assistance and guidance.

Thank you!

Without a doubt, Tim is one of the best attorneys in his field. He is organized, thorough, and very clear. I always knew exactly what he needed and what I had to do. The process of bankruptcy can be very overwhelming, but he was able to break it down in manageable pieces. He is well-respected by his peers and clients. It was clear to me that he was highly regarded by the courts, as well. I strongly recommend Tim Pletter as he has made the whole experience a positive one. Despite his detail-orientation and business-like image, he has a very nice way about him which can really help during such an emotional time.
