Faye Feinstein"I have referred matters to Debbie for years. When we refer matters outside our firm, our reputation is directly affected by the quality of the service provided by those we recommend. I send matters to Debbie because I know she will provide excellent, competent, reliable and cost-effective service. I have also co-counseled with her many times. She is bright, responsive and a pleasure to work with".

    Faye B. Feinstein, Partner

    Quarles & Brady LLP


"Deborah Ebner is an attorney to whom I would without hesitation refer my closest family members, friends and important clients. She joins absolutely top-notch skills and experience as a bankruptcy attorney with a deep and wise understanding of the sources of the financial and personal stresses facing her clients. Her ability to assist her clients in navigating those stresses, during what may be the most difficult time of their lives, enhances her ability to provide the most effective representation possible."

“I was referred to Ebner by a major law firm in town when I lost a major lawsuit on a technicality. She negotiated a settlement and worked out a strategy that kept me out of bankruptcy as I had wished. She’s the real deal.”

    David Doerge

    Investment Banker

“It is her intelligence, her creativity, her responsiveness, and her ability to not wait around, but to get ahead of the problem that distinguishes her from many other lawyers in her practice area. She's an ahead of the curve person. She is one of the best bankruptcy lawyers who represents debtors that I’ve ever had the privilege of dealing with.”

"Debbie is quick to size up a troubled situation. She brings a pragmatic approach towards solving the problems confronting her."

    Stephen T. Bobo


“She is very dogged, very helpful, and quiet approachable…I’ll use the word “brilliant” in terms of what she knows in her specialty. In terms of getting through the court systems, she is so knowledgeable of judges, people, the process, that it cuts time. Our single largest costs when we do a transaction, short of the transaction itself, are the legal fees, and that’s all based on time. That’s why I like Debbie – she’s very efficient that way.”

    Frank Feraco


    Great Lakes Equity Partners

“We are an automotive industry supplier with the misfortune of having been a creditor in the GM, Chrysler and Getrag bankruptcy cases. Deb has the ability to cut through bureaucracy and, she got us through the bankruptcy system cost effectively, allowing us to recoup our losses. Should the need arise, Deb will be the first person we call for legal assistance in the future.”

    Michael J Wern

“As a credit executive for a large supplier, I have had several customers file bankruptcy with Debbie Ebner as Trustee. I have found Debbie's expertise, responsiveness and willingness to probe deeply into cases to be superior to any trustee I have yet encountered Any creditor could rest easy knowing she will be diligent and go to any length to make sure both the creditors' and debtors' rights are protected I heartily recommend Debbie Ebner for her knowledge, integrity, tenaciousness and preparation.”
