What Happens At a Lot of Bankruptcy Law Firms?
What many people don't know about the business of bankruptcy law is that many law firms don't have the lawyer in the advertising meet with you. The person you met with or hired is generally an assistant, paralegal, and sometimes a salesperson. If you do meet with an attorney at your first meeting, it is usually to just "introduce himself" to you so you can see that there really is an attorney in the office. This attorney will not do any of the work. At these firms, all of the work is done by paralegals, secretaries, outside services and outside lawyers. The lawyer that the person thought was being hired only shows up at the first meeting, or is never met and is only on the website or other advertising. If you don't ask the right questions, you don't find out until after you've hired them and paid your money. by then, it's too late for you to do anything other than starting over and paying another law firm.
