Today, many bankruptcy websites offer a free review by having you fill out an online form. In many cases, this is then forwarded to a law firm in your area who you may or may not know. Then at some point after that, you will get a call from some staff employee of that law firm to discuss this further. Note that in this process, you are not at any time speaking to a bankruptcy attorney.
We offer a free initial consultation for most matters. This includes a free bankruptcy evaluation. This means that Mr. Whelan (not a paralegal or assistant) personally gets on the phone with you when you call, and first asks why you think that you need to file for bankruptcy. He will then ask you a series of questions about your income, assets and liabilities to see whether you qualify for bankruptcy. Mr. Whelan will then discuss the various bankruptcy chapters, and advise you of the pros and cons of each. Finally, he will explain the entire bankruptcy process to you from intake to discharge, speaking plainly and clearly instead of using technical jargon. He does not require you to fill out a form just to talk to him.
Filing for bankruptcy is a very serious decision. If you want prompt advice from a conscientious and experienced bankruptcy attorney, then call our offices today for a free bankruptcy evaluation.
