Our clients say it best. Hear from people we've helped about their financial recovery journey and their experiences with BDO.
I have learned a lot about expenses. What I truly need and wanted and how I used my income was an eye opener to the unhealthy ways I was using money leading to my bankruptcy. When I needed guidance and clarity the staff was always there and very prompt in getting back to me. I was cared for and respected in the recovery of my financial state. Thank you for your time and help during that difficult time.
Kerry Carter has always been a pleasant and friendly first contact when visiting BDO. She has a very professional mannerism, her presence has always made it seem like a reliable and safe environment. Whenever I had questions, Kerry was quick to respond and offered a kind and useful response.
After completing post secondary school I had high amounts of student debt and consumer debts that required high monthly payments. After having children the added costs of childcare and children’s needs resulted in my budget becoming overextended. Financial stress became too high of a burden so I made the tough decision to seek debt solutions. BDO staff were supportive throughout the process and provided step by step practical guidance along the way. At first I was very hesitant but in time I realized that not only was this the right solution, but that it would have been better if I had sought debt solutions three to five years earlier to prevent long term experiences of financial strain. Debt solutions really are just that 'solutions' and the BDO team are experts in this area and are eager to roll out a workable plan to get you out of debt.
Thank you Kerry Carter for your help. Your response time was excellent and you are very knowledgeable. You had the answers to all my questions and you are very pleasant to deal with. BDO is lucky to have you!
Adam Cardwell was amazing at making us not feel like failures and helping to make what had the potential to be a terrible time in our lives a little more bearable, and somehow made us feel like were were still in control even though there were so many unknowns for us. We cannot thank him enough.
Going through something like filing bankruptcy can be scary, humiliating and so overwhelming, but Adam Cardwell set our minds at ease. He explained everything in detail and ensured we were aware of all potential options. When it came time to proceed, he helped us make an informed decision, answered all our questions, ensured we were 100% comfortable with our decision and all potential outcomes before proceeding with filing.
Over the years I dealt with BDO, I found them to be very understanding when personal affairs came up, very patient, great to work with. They gave me all the possible assistance and resources required to push through such a difficult time. Special thanks to Tracey St. Croix, Nancy Snedden, Michelle Walsh in the St. John's NL office for great personal and professional service. I would definitely recommend this group to handle and navigate your insolvency or proposal requirements.
Life often takes us on many unexpected ups and downs. Being self-employed has so many benefits and rewards, but when you get injured there's no one to do your work for you. Most of us live above our means and rely heavily on every paycheque. Disability only covers a fraction of your income, and things can feel hopeless in a hurry. It can feel embarrassing to admit you need help. The sooner you leave your pride at the door and reach out to BDO, the sooner you get your life back.
The worry of finances can put unnecessary stress on your health, your marriage, your family and your self-worth. BDO can help you get your life back with one of many options.
BDO specialists were always there to assist and help me manage my debt issues. If an issue arose where payments were delayed, etc. they were always patient and very helpful to assist me in resolving the matter.
Debt can be overwhelming. We’re here to make sure you’re not alone on your journey to financial wellness. Our debt experts are ready to listen to your story and make sure you understand all the options available to you.
