People from all walks of life are currently experiencing difficult economic times. This is no more prevalent than in Florida where the once over inflated housing market continues to decline and the economic outlook remains bleak. However, despite so many people dealing with similar economic troubles, there is no “one size fits all” solution that can effectively address each person’s individual financial situation.
With this in mind, the question remains, “Is Bankruptcy right for you?” Fortunately, this question can usually be answered pretty easily after a brief office or phone consultation. Now you may wonder how you can afford a personal consultation with a bankruptcy attorney when you are already in the midst of a financial dilemma. The truth is that while not all attorneys are so gracious with their time, there are many bankruptcy attorneys that do offer free consultations. I strongly suggest that you take us up on our offer and take full advantage of the information you can obtain during a free consultation. I can not speak for all attorneys, but our initial consultation is very detail oriented. After all, how can I advise you on the best course of action if I do not know all of the facts of your particular situation?
One thing that you quickly notice when consulting with an attorney at our office is that we are not so quick to start you down the road to bankruptcy. In addition to multiple chapters of Bankruptcy protection, there are even more potential alternative to bankruptcy solutions. It is for this reason that we spend significant time exploring all of the potential legal and financial solutions that are available. All too often I meet with potential clients who have been told that they are perfect for bankruptcy when in fact, bankruptcy was not their best solution. I even had one client that was told they should file for bankruptcy by another attorney only to have our office resolve all of their issues with three phone calls and all for around 5% of the cost of a bankruptcy filing. Along that same line, there have been many times when a prospective client has told me that they met with another attorney who told them they need to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. However, after a thorough review of the facts at hand, there were no reasons why some of these individuals could not achieve their goals through a less expensive and much shorter Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.
If you are faced with financial difficulties, take a minute to schedule a free consultation with a bankruptcy attorney. You will be surprised how much stress will be relived once, with the help of an experienced attorney, you identify your options and potential solutions. Bankruptcy is not right for everyone and at The Bankruptcy Group of Florida; we take special care to find the solution that is best for you. A fresh financial start may be one free phone call away.
