Bankruptcy Lawyer Says Not To File For Bankruptcy


Bankruptcy may be the right move for you, or maybe not. Bankruptcy lawyers will call what I’m about to say heresy, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to get flamed by my colleagues and friends for saying it. I’m willing to take the risk, and I invite everyone to submit their comments to this post to let me know what they think.

If you’re thinking of filing for bankruptcy I have a piece of advice for you – don’t.

That is, don’t file for bankruptcy unless you’ve taken the time to thoroughly assess your situation and whether bankruptcy is right for you. After all, it’s a last resort. But more to the point, it’s a road you don’t want to travel until you’ve had the chance to know all of your options.
