What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

That is one of the top objectives in our consultation to help them be educated about their rights and options, and also hazards. One of the greatest hazards for bankruptcy debtors are the pro se filings, as they have usually disastrous consequences. The variable circumstances of these individual filers are so large, and so exploitable by the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy trustees, that it is truly essential that we get together and frankly represent these people. Going pro se is typically a mistake. And certain creditors obviously hope the debtors make that mistake.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am willing to review documents prepared by clients.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Not willing. Pro se filing is frankly a disastrous mistake. Our fees are reasonable flat fees, so they should take advantage of us.
