  • Protect Yourself: Reasons to Avoid Bankruptcy Mills

    Bankruptcy mills are legal firms that advertise aggressively, offer apparently low rates and ultimately provide appallingly poor service to those who need them the most.

    Bankruptcy mills are legal firms that advertise aggressively and provide appallingly poor service to those who need them the most.

    Finding the right bankruptcy lawyer to trust can be an overwhelming decision, particularly considering all of the competition out there. Unfortunately, some of the most alluring prospects in terms of saving you money up front may be the worst choices, as the old adage, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is bogus, particularly rings true with bankruptcy firms. What financially strapped consumers need to be especially cautious of is bankruptcy mills, legal firms that advertise aggressively, offer apparently low rates and ultimately provide appallingly poor service to those who need them the most.

    Some indications of bankruptcy mills include (but are not limited to) firms that:

    • Allow non-attorney staff to oversee the majority of your case
    • Do not have proper or adequate supervision of non-attorney staff by lawyers licensed to practice bankruptcy law
    • Overburden their staff with bankruptcy cases, which increases the likelihood that such untrained and/or unsupervised staff will make egregious mistakes (such as missing court dates, failing to file essential documents with the courts on time, forgetting to respond to creditors and/or generally being unprepared to represent you in court)
    • Make it a habit of cutting corners and engaging in potentially unethical practices

    Making the mistake of working with a bankruptcy mill can ultimately cause debtors a world of financial – and potentially legal – problems in the future. Some of the most common mistakes bankruptcy mills make can lead to devastating consequences, including (but not limited to the following), for already struggling debtors:

    • Unnecessary setbacks in bankruptcy cases
    • Rejection of a bankruptcy case
    • Accumulation of more debt (due to compounding interest)
    • Wage garnishments, foreclosures and even lawsuits filed by creditors
