Consumers like to have options. This is why you often see a Home Depot right across the street from a Lowes.  Sometimes you’re going to be happier at Home Depot, and sometimes you’re going to be happier at your local True Value hardware.  Now, don’t get me wrong; I like Home Depot but sometimes it’s just nicer and easier to stop by the local hardware where the people know you and you receive one on one customer service.


In Bankruptcy, you have the same options available to you.  There are Lowes and Home Depot bankruptcy firms, and there are bankruptcy firms like mine that are more of a neighborhood hardware store.  Just last week I was talking to an attorney and owner of a very large bankruptcy firm and he told me this: “If I am not at my desk I am losing money.”  So their model is the owner sits at his desk and does consultations and legal work.  Then a junior associate represents you in court.  Several other firms in the Detroit area have upwards of twelve attorneys practicing bankruptcy.  Each time you contact their office or go to court you will have a different attorney, or someone new representing you.


Now in both of these examples above you will get a bankruptcy, just as if you went to Home Depot or Lowes you will get what you’re looking for.   Now here is how we do things different, at my firm you will get my wife and me that is who you are hiring isn’t it?  We will be the ones you have your first consultation with, we will be the people you hire, we will be the ones that prepare and review your bankruptcy petition, we will be the ones that review the petition with you and we will be the ones that attend your court hearings with you! 


Now notice that I used the term WE.  My wife and I work on all of our bankruptcies together.  We have found over the years that having both of us work on every case creates a checks and balance system to make sure your case is a perfect as it can be prior to filing.   So to us it does not matter if your case is a simple Chapter 7 or a complicated Chapter 13, your case will be reviewed by both of us prior to it being filed with the bankruptcy court.  If you’re looking for a more personable bankruptcy firm where the person you hire will be the person with you from start to finish, we are your firm!
