"I was filled with a lot of apprehension and anxiety when I walked into Mr. Natale ‘s office. But I was warmly greeted by Mary Jane, Mr. Natale’s support staff, who was warm and empathetic and put me at ease. I knew I was in the right place.

Mr. Natale was a great listener and never made me feel rushed. He was very patient and answered all of my many questions. I found him to be very professional and knowledgeable about the process and gave me great advice and wisdom.

His caring and kindness made me feel like I had a friend who was with me through the whole process. I was in good hands. I would highly recommend him."

"I wanted to thank you again for the representation that you gave me. After everything that I've been through the last few years, I was expecting it to just get worse, and was absolutely thrilled with the outcome. I would recommend anyone in my situation to come and see you. Everything was handled very professionally, and explained very well. Much thanks again."

"We live 70 miles from Rockford, IL. Because our personal and corporate bankruptcies were too complicated for our local attorney, we were referred to Bernard J. Natale in Rockford. Needless to say, my wife and I were very apprehensive about meeting Mr. Natale. The bankruptcies weighed heavily on our minds, we were experiencing a lot of stress, and we were embarrassed with the prospects of going bankrupt. After meeting with Mr. Natale, we were very relieved that he treated our financial situation with much respect, compassion, and thoroughness. We're senior citizens in our 70's and attorneys Natale has literally given us a 'new lease' on life now that our bankruptcies have been discharged. We're so grateful to them and regard them as 'friends' and not just as 'clients.' — we've even added them to our Christmas card list!!"

"I never would have thought I would end up filing for bankruptcy, but here I was in your office doing just that.  After being in business my whole life, I thought it would continue but, unfortunately, I was still on the track when the great train wreck happened.  I want to thank you and Mary for your personalized attention and empathy to my challenge.  I always felt you had my best interest in mind with each decision.  It certainly proved wise to only file personally and not corporately. Thankfully I still have my corporation name and hopefully I can still make a come back with the help of family. God Bless you and your family and staff."

"Now that our bankruptcy is over, I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for the professionalism and kindness shown by your firm.

Needless to say, entering into bankruptcy has its share of fear and trepidation brought on by shame and lack of knowledge at the outset as to what the end result will be.

Mr. Natale spending more than an hour at the outset helped allay our fears and assured us it would be OK, explaining everything in detail.

Your patience with my constant questioning helped me to learn that it was not the end of the world, and that life would go on and we could rebuild.

Your support staff, starting with Mary, was incredible and always exuded warmth and a smile right when you needed it.

Everyone in the office always made us feel comfortable and unashamed.

It's amazing what smiling faces can do in times of trouble and perceived failure.

Thank you all, again, for being so kind, professional, and caring.

Despite the circumstances, we felt like we had a friend in our corner."

"At one point in time, I was in need of a Bankruptcy Attorney. I was referred to the law office of Bernard J. Natale by a previous client of his. My experience with Attorney and his staff made this process a bearable one. Attorney Natale answered my questions in a way that I could understand. This was an extremely stressful time for me and I was fortunate to have such a kind and understanding attorney and his staff. I was treated with utmost dignity and was made to feel that I was the only client he had. Attorney Natale and his staff held my hand through every step of the process. I would HIGHLY recommend the Law Office of Bernard J. Natale to anyone who is going through a difficult financial time right now, and needs someone who will treat them with dignity and compassion."

"Courteous, professional, thorough and timely are just some of the words I use to describe my experience with the law office of Bernard J. Natale, Ltd.

If asked, I would recommend to family and friends."

"Just dropping you a line to let you know how appreciative I am of the help, advice, and professionalism I received from your office. Bankruptcy was obviously not any fun and I had a lot of anxiety, shame, questions, etc going into it. Your office and Bernard in particular were amazing. I was made to feel very comfortable initially and many of my concerns and questions were answered promptly. Any that weren't, a simple phone call would take care of it. The outcome was good and I'm very fortunate that I was referred to you. You made a bad situation very tolerable and I always felt like I wasn't alone and that you 'had my back'. Good luck to all of you and thanks."
