Bankruptcy Horror Stories
Unfortunately, some people don't really take the time to choose the right bankruptcy lawyer.
They think lawyers are all the same and they will get the same result no matter
who they work with. They also think that since they are in rough financial shape the court will
automatically take care of them and make sure things turn out right.
However, that is not the law.
the U.S. Supreme Court has said, a person is "deemed bound by the acts of
his lawyer. So, it's important to choose the right one.
A bankruptcy lawyer who has experience and
can do the job right. It's also important to choose someone who is still truly engaged in the practice of law--and
not with one foot out the door towards retirement. Usually after talking or meeting with the right lawyer, you
will know you're in good hands.
In case you need further convincing that you have an important choice to make, here are some links to
opinions by the Board of Bar Overseers of the Supreme Judicial Court
disciplining Massachusetts lawyers for substandard work in bankruptcy cases. I don't know any of these lawyers, and they may have
had reasons for what happened
in these cases, but it's certain that their clients would have acted different if they had a chance to choose a lawyer again.
