- Every area of law has become far to complicated for most, including good lawyers, to understand.
- Many believe that good legal advice is too expensive to afford. That may be true, but NOT for consumers seeking advice regarding bankruptcy; usually that advice is free.
- Bad “legal advice” is everywhere: the Internet, neighbors and friends, plus incompetent lawyers and document preparers.
- Many people believe that they can prepare their own legal documents: bankruptcy, complicated tax returns or plan their own estate. They do not understand the planning that goes into every bankruptcy. Without proper planning they will lose their tax refunds or other non-exempt property. Worse yet is that they repaid relatives or transferred assets, then filed bankruptcy. Now the bankruptcy trustee demands that the relatives return the funds or face a law suit. When this falls apart the same people who filed their own bankruptcy pay hundreds of dollars to hire a lawyer, but find that once the problem is created it cannot be undone without a lot of work, if ever. This is like doing your own open heart surgery, then going to the hospital to repair the damage you caused. Not a good idea. Remember the old adage – “do it right the first time”.
