How Does Bankruptcy Work?

23 Jan How Does Bankruptcy Work?

Mmmm, I bet this person is feeling overwhelmed and doesn’t know where to begin. It’s a painful and frustrating place.

A good response might be something like, “What’s bothering you?” That will bring out details which can be fully discussed in bite-sized, understandable pieces.

But even that response might miss a critical issue, simply because you might not know that there’s another problem under the covers. That’s why your attorney will ask all kinds of questions that might not appear to make sense at first. And that’s why I do a search on a national asset database for my clients, because not everyone knows that a parent might have added their name to a deed.

Interview your attorney for experience and for references. I survey each client at the end of the case, and I publish those results (with the names blocked out, of course),on my website and in a book on my conference room table. Does yours?
