A few of the Client Thank You’s and Testimonials

We Have Received

Yvonne S – April 1, 2016

Cate did a wonderful job handling my case from a junk debt buyer that I had been handling on my own for several months, and I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. I found her incredibly efficient and straightforward, in addition to being empathetic to my needs. She took an very stressful situation for me, and in a matter of a few weeks, made it feel like it never happened. She took the time to go over all my options and carefully outlined the pros and cons of each. I highly recommend her!

Don R – December 20, 2015

Because of the type of debts I had incurred, I needed to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead of a Chapter 7, which is what most people file. And for reasons that are too complicated to go into here, I needed to file quickly. I spoke to one lawyer who didn’t even know that I needed to file a Chapter 13. The second lawyer I spoke with, after hearing about my situation, decided that my case was too difficult for him to handle.

Then I spoke to Cate. She spent a lot of time listening to me explain my situation and answering all my questions — and I must admit I had a lot of them. It turns out that a Chapter 13 is a lot more complicated than a Chapter 7, and it requires considerably more time and effort by both the debtor (that would be me) and the lawyer (that would be Cate).

It was obvious that Cate knew all the ins-and-out and myriad technicalities of Chapter 13 bankruptcy law. She made sure I got her all the necessary financial documents, was very prompt in responding to any questions I had along the way, and got all the paperwork filed by my very tight deadline.

I just got word that my Chapter 13 payment plan has been approved by the court. I couldn’t have done it without Cate, and I’m delighted I had her handle my case.

AC – June 4, 2015

I found Cate online when I was going through one of the most difficult times in my life. My construction business had sustained huge losses and as a result all of my debts were too much to pay off. Cate was incredibly understanding, epathetic, kind, and informative of all of my options and helped guide me through each step of the Capt 7 process. She also listened carefully to me and my concerns and we created a plan together. Through the entire process, Cate was always available and responsive. In addition she was very patient with my and worked hard to get my case approved. My debts were dis charged a few month’s ago and now I have a clean slate and new opportunity to succeed. I will forever be grateful to Cate as I truly believe that I could not have had a better attorney to help me through this difficult process.
I would highly recommend Cate to anyone else who seeks the best possible representation.

JW – June 4, 2015

Let’s face it….bankruptcy does not feel good to think about let alone having to go through it….. That’s the worst of it….Cate Eranthe took the pain out of all of it! When I asked why she chose to specialize in bankruptcy law, part of her answer was that it gave people a fresh start.
That is exactly what I felt…upon meeting her. She is ‘userfriendly’, always patient and extremely professional.

Cate kept up on all that was happening with my case, gently reminded me of things I needed to do and was fun to work with. What more could I ask for….professional,
delightful and has, indeed, allowed me to have a fresh start. I feel that!

Marcia – February 6, 2015

Cate was extremely thorough in the preparation phase of my case and as a result, once filed, the result was a seamless and swift discharge. I felt Cate was aware of the emotions involved and at the same time was tireless and focused in the factual gathering crucial to a successful conclusion. There were glitches and hitches that arose in my case and she was right there to guide me through and, at times, with a great sense of humor always where appropriate. Cate is a consummate professional setting her apart and above and in addition…SHE CARES. I happily refer her to my friends and family.

Richard P – December 3, 2014

Cate Eranthe is by far one of the most professional, efficient, kind, ethical, and knowledgeable attorneys I have ever worked with. Cate is assisting me with a Chapter 7,
while simultaneously I’m going through a divorce, and Cate was able to file my case in 20 days from my first meeting with her. We still have to attend the creditors’
hearing, but the bulk of the work was almost too painless. I recommend that you talk with Cate before or after talking with other attorneys. Just do as she says and she
will get you there. She can be the calm in your life’s storm.

Patty C – November 18, 2014

When you have to go through a painful process like bankruptcy, it’s best to have someone working with you who knows the process well, and Catherine Eranthe is the person you want as your guide and professional ally. She clearly understands a client’s concerns and circumstances, and she gave me all of the information I needed to confidently go through the process. She was always available for questions and her significant experience and personal character make her a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Catherine Eranthe.

Thank you, Cate!

Zola D – March 19, 2014

I gladly recommend Cate Eranthe if you’re going through bankruptcy or considering it. We had a business that was severely impacted by the housing crisis, home underwater and had reached a point of no return. Bankruptcy was the fact. Ms. Eranthe was highly recommended by a mortgage counselor.

Cate is very knowledgeable, and was willing to answer all my many questions. She remained focused and patient throughout a process that definitely made me a little edgy. Her compassion and persistence were excellent.

She has many qualities that are sterling- exactly what one needs in such a situation.

Thank you, Cate Eranthe, for helping us set a new stage and letting us experience a fresh beginning. Thank you for the excellent, professional, and caring support.
Successful outcome was our result, thanks to her hard work and follow through.

LG – June 26, 2013

Thank you so much for helping me navigate this process. It was surprisingly painless. I will make sure to check my credit reports in two months and I will let you know if I run into any snags.

DC – June 24, 2013

Both my father/mother and I want to pass along our thanks for working on the Bank of America resolution and more with stipulation/agreement to have Wells Fargo second equity line resolved in my parents favor. It has been such a long road for my parents, and the progress that is being made and comprehends their particular situation is indeed great news. My parents are starting to breath a sigh of relief.

Thank you so much for all of your efforts. Really, just great work!

RG – October 18, 2012

Whew, I’m so glad it went well yesterday.  Thank you for the way you handled my case with being on top of everything that needed to be handled before we actually went before the Trustee . . .  I was amazed and quite surprised that some lawyers had never met their clients in person.  Some still had paperwork to sign, and the one lawyer that was ill without a replacement to represent his clients.  That actually shocked me and I’m glad it turned out well for them.

Yesterday, I broke up with lack and stress.  I hope everybody in that room did as well.

IB – May 14, 2012

Again I want to thank you for all of your help in getting my bankruptcy case taken care of.  I did tell my friend . . . about your work and I think she will be contacting you.  Good Luck in your new office.

AL – May 4, 2012

Thank you so much for your help today. I feel a huge weight lifted off my shoulders!

TC – April 24, 2013

Thanks for the good news. I appreciate it and your fighting for me. Now I can focus on getting back to living a more normal life, meaning hot water. 🙂

MRL – April 18, 2012

I contacted 3 bankruptcy attorneys from the NACBA web site. Cate was the only one who was able to get back to me in a timely matter and move my case forward. Cate kept the process organized and professional. After going through this, I am glad I did not try to do this on my own. I would definitely recommend Cate to anyone seeking an attorney for bankruptcy.

SB – February 18, 2012

I would highly recommend using Cate Eranthe should you find yourself in the difficult position of having to deal with creditors and filing bankruptcy. Cate was there every step of the way, explaining options, helping with forms and data gathering…all the while a calming presence during a stressful time. From start to finish she was available, knowledgeable, and professional. No doubts; she is an exemplary attorney!

Lynn  – November 13, 2011

Bankruptcy attorney Cate Eranthe helped me with several legal matters over the years including filing bankruptcy and an administrative hearing. The bankruptcy was a difficult decision I felt forced into by credit card debt. The banks wouldn’t work with me and rather than let them get a judgment I cut it off by filing the bankruptcy. Each time she succeeded in getting me desirable results. She was accessible and explained each step in terms that I could understand. Her calm, logical approach helped me deal with the stress of being in a “legal” situation. I highly recommend her!

amb  – October 14, 2011

My husband & I were struggling with the decision of bankruptcy for over a year. Anyone going through this can relate to the stress and toll it takes on your life. Our first meeting with Cate Eranthe could not have been a more pleasant experience. We were greeted with warmth & compassion. As soon as we sat down we were put at ease with her vast knowledge & ability to relate to our struggle and offer a solution. She quickly erased any fears or misgivings we had about filing for bankruptcy. She took immediate action and stopped all collection phone calls. What a relief!!! Cate also negotiated our auto loan & not only reduced our interest rate, but reduced our principle balance as well! We were amazed at how smooth & Stress free the entire process was. Cate was truly a pleasure to work with & made an unfortunate situation much better so we can now move on with our lives. We would highly recommend Cate Eranthe to anyone who is thinking of filing for bankruptcy.

sew– September 12, 2011

The Eranthe Law Firm was a pleasure to work with. Cate Eranthe helped us make the best decisions under the circumstances. We appreciated her human and personal approach.

kat – August 29, 2011

Thank you for all your great help! I’m sleeping better since the creditors stopped contacting me and threatening me.

CC – June 9, 2011

Everything went very smoothly and I am very satisfied with the outcome. It was a pleasure working with Cate Eranthe. I feel so much relief.

msc – July 29, 2011

Thank you so much for everything. You are an excellent professional with a lot of knowledge. I’m glad you helped me out and I have a LOT LESS stress.

Matt – July 11, 2011

Cate Eranthe helped me out a lot. I have less stress and she did a SUPER job!

sc– March 22, 2011

Thank you for all of your help last week. I am so glad I didn’t try to file bankruptcy myself. You were great at the hearing.

EllenK  – March 5, 2011

I have known and worked with Catherine for over 20 years.  She is diligent, loyal to her clients, and extremely competent.  Catherine recently corrected an error in the credit bureau reports by writing a dispute letter that clearly illustrated the problem. She resolved this issue for a family member.  I trust and recommend her.

Ingrid W – January 5, 2011

I met Catherine Eranthe at a bankruptcy seminar she taught for the County of Marin. I was there with a young “semi-English speaking” couple whom I care about and have been trying to help. Catherine offered a personal consultation to anyone in attendance. Because of the clients’ limited English and cluelessness regarding the basics of record keeping, I was in constant communication with Catherine and received a copy of all documents related to their case.

I so thoroughly enjoyed working with this very special lady that I shall miss her. Catherine Eranthe is sharp as a tack. She is also compassionate and keenly perceptive. And, she has the patience of Job, which was a necessity in this instance. I give her my unqualified recommendation!

MC – December 20, 2010

Thank you so much for everything. You are a wonderful attorney!

Janet  – January 3, 1988

Thank you so very much for helping me through this troubling time. I’m glad I had you as my legal advocate!
