Savi, thank you so much for all the help and assistance.


Pat and Debra were just amazing. They were very compassionate during this stressful time. Despite the current face to face Covid restrictions, I was able to sign my proposal without any direct personal contact in a manner that worked best for me and my personal safety.


Thank you thank you Savi!! Wishing you and your family all the best in the days, weeks years ahead. Wishing Ron and the rest of your colleagues all the best too. This is a difficult and emotional process to go through and you guys made it a lot easier! Always answered my questions quickly and you always put my mind at ease. I am grateful that I went through this process with Brief & Associates. Stay safe and healthy! We will get through this together!


Thanks Barbara!!!! Holy crap!!!! WOW!!!! And woo hoo!!!! Omg you don’t know how much I want to jump up and down for joy right now! I can’t thank you guys enough.


A few years I found myself deep in debt and what seemed like an impossible situation.

By some stroke of good fortune I was introduced to Brief & Associates. At first I was reluctant to meet with them as I felt embarrassed and hopeless at the same time.

I finally decided to take the meeting and prepared myself for the inevitable judgment and shaming that I was sure would happen.

The attitude I encountered was anything but. They were reassuring, positive and extremely professional which put me at ease while they outlined a solution that was quick and painless in its execution.

Within no time the proposal was done and I moved on with my life and a brand new perspective. No more collection calls and sleepless nights.

If you find yourself in the same predicament as I was, I suggest you contact them immediately. It’ll definitely change your life for the better.


Financial problems can reduce you to feeling foolish, stupid, embarrassed, stressed, lonely and in possession of a failing, out of control life — all not healthy. All of that goes away fast when you talk with Ron Klein and his team at Brief & Associates. Yes, Ron immediately serves up a solution that is easy and painless giving you a fresh, clean slate. But, more important, Ron’s upbeat, matter of fact professionalism gives you the awakening you need to realize — “You’re not alone, everyone makes mistakes. Here’s how to move on instantly and feel good doing it." I can’t imagine anyone better at this than Ron and his team at Brief.

I can’t thank them enough…

Excellent service, very courteous and straight forward, perfect team wit accuracy and reliability. They gave me my peace and confidence back with good guidance and hard work. Definitely I will recommend using their services.


Thank you so much for all you have done for me. I'm looking forward to brighter days ahead because of your help. I'm so grateful!


Barbara, thank you for meeting with me. I appreciated your professionalism and was grateful for your support. I have been struggling with this ‘situation’ for long enough and look forward to clearing it up.


I am glad went to Brief & Associates, since it gave me a new perspective on money and how to handle finances. I was quite pleased to have consulted with Barb Thomson in the Brockville office. She explained what and how the procedure worked. Ms. Thomson also made herself available to answer all my questions when they arose. She was so pleasant and helpful to work with. The procedure was unique and she assisted me as time went on. With Ms. Thomson's assistance, I changed my viewpoint on finances to a more positive one. So much so, I managed to budget better and paid off the proposal early.

Hi Ron, I’m happy to report that for the last 4 months, I have strictly adhered to my monthly budget and even more importantly have really adapted a new paradigm for saving and tracking spending and just generally dealing with my finances. It has been a learning curve, but a very very helpful one. I feel so much less stress in my life, and I am beginning to feel even cautiously optimistic about my financial future. This is in so small way thanks to you. So, from the bottom of my many, many spreadsheets, I thank you.


Thank you once again for your tremendous assistance with the whole process. You have been knowledgeable and fantastic to work with.


Hi Savi, I just wanted to thank you again for everything. You have been wonderful from the very start.

All the best,


Going through a bankruptcy is not a great experience but having Savi help me made it a lot easier. She is great person to work with and appreciate everything she did for me. Glad she is a part of Brief & Associates.

Great Job Savi, keep up the good work.

Hi Ron, I hope that you're well. I never thanked you for looking after my affairs so professionally and satisfactory. I never took for granted the agony which you lifted off my shoulders. It is a great feeling not running away from phone calls when CRA was calling. You offer a great service. Thank you for everything and sorry for not writing sooner.


Elliot, your help has been really appreciated. I had a really great experience working with Brief and Associates and my stress has been reduced by filing the bankruptcy. Thank you.

We wanted to thank Angie and Ron for your efforts and your compassion. We appreciate what you did and more importantly, the sensitivity with which you did it.

My husband and I realized we needed help with our debt situation when after continued payments to credit card companies it felt like the money was going down the black hole and we weren’t making any significant progress in reducing our overall debts. Consumer Proposal helped us reduce our total debt amount and make one single monthly payment. This allowed us to focus on paying it off with all we’ve got, and we were debt free in just over a year.

This is amazing! You just made my weekend. I can finally breath as this big headache has been lifted.

Thank you again as I can begin my new life with my husband!


I can’t tell you how much all of your assistance has been appreciated Over the last five years. Having compassionate, respectful and resourceful people like you to help me along the way has certainly helped make the road much easier for me. I wish you all the best In your future endeavours. Yours truly,


Very nice to meet you Pat. I can appreciate and respect that you have a difficult job. Thank you for your kindness and non judgment demeanor. It makes this slightly less embarrassing and depressing. This is a skill that can't be taught. Brief Trustee is fortunate to have you! Thanks again.


Hi April – I would like to thank you for your patience and advice you’ve given to me. I was a bit nervous when I saw you and you were very helpful. Just wanted to say thank you for all your help.


Dear Angie, with a grateful heart I’m saying a big thank you for your kindness to me. “A kindness is long remembered”.


In my efforts to settle a debt with CRA I approached 5 different trustees. I was misled, lied to and told totally different information from each of them. Tales of, you do not qualify for a proposal, you must go bankrupt, to, I get paid $450 per hour. One trustee would not answer direct questions, he would talk around your question hoping to confuse you. Another trustee became irritated at my asking any questions, his remark, Boy, I’ve never had anyone ask me so many questions.

Then I met Ron and Elliot at Brief and associates. When I went to the meeting it was with much trepidation but I left feeling like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. We did a proposal with CRA and they walked me thru it every step of the way. A difficult situation made much easier by their professionalism. To anyone in need of a trustee I highly recommend these two gentlemen. Thank you very much Elliot and Ron.


I feel that I can breathe now and things are looking better for me. Just want to say thanks again for all your help, it has meant so much to me. I feel like I have a future again. You are very thoughtful and caring with your clients.


Hi Barbara, Thank you so very much for all of your time, effort, care, kindness, support, assistance, and everything else throughout this time. You do valuable work that really help people come back to life and have a 2nd chance, and I am grateful. I will certainly recommend your services to anyone in need. Wishing you All the best. Sincerely,


I can not thank you enough Ron for handling my case and answering all my questions in details. All the best to you and your Team. It is not a surprise to me that you are ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.


Angie and Savi! Thank you for all your patience and kindness toward me over the years, I am grateful to be debt free!!!


Elliot is a kind, empathic and caring person and helped me to continue on with my life.

I am so glad that someone recommended your company as it has been a life saver for me.

Blessings to all of you and keep up the good work.
