Choosing Your Bankruptcy Attorney Missouri 2017-09-06T19:01:48+00:00


You might be at a point where you have either decided to file Bankruptcy or at the very least have decided to educate yourself on the topic and want to talk to an attorney.

Contacting a bankruptcy lawyer would be your next move, but how do you decide which one to choose?  Many attorneys who practice bankruptcy law advertise across all forms of media like the radio, television, on the internet, and billboards. The photo in the ad seems nice and I’m sure they are. Has this nice photo managed to gain your trust or do you need more? A referral is a great way to get the name of an attorney that someone can vouch for, but asking someone if they know a bankruptcy attorney can be too personal to ask. So what can you do?

You can keep your eyes peeled for a few tell-tale signs that you may be in the wrong place. It may not seem like it at first but there are obvious differences between attorneys who practice in specialized areas of law and attorneys who only exclusively practice in one specialized area of law. In short, watch out for Bankruptcy Mills. In an ideal world, there would be just one such mill, but the truth is there are many in Kansas City, proper as well as the Greater KC area.

The purpose of a Bankruptcy Mill, and thus the attorneys employed by them, is to produce as many “new” cases as possible where your case gets paddled through almost like cattle, with little or no care. It’s common for the attorney who is handling your case to be pressured into obtaining a minimum quota.  There are nightmarish accounts from clients who were victims of bankruptcies that were filed incorrectly by bankruptcy mills.

In likely one of the most challenging moments of your life, worrying about choosing the right attorney shouldn’t add to that challenge. Unfortunately, it absolutely can.  Contact RS Law to schedule a free consultation and know that regardless of who you choose to represent you, be cautious of Bankruptcy Mills.
