  • Signs of Bankruptcy Mills and Reasons to Avoid Them

    Bankruptcy mills are firms that offer very low rates but that also entrust your important financial matters to non-attorney staff who can botch your case.

    Bankruptcy mills are firms that offer very low rates but that also entrust your important financial matters to non-attorney staff who can botch your case.

    Bankruptcy mills refer to legal organizations that heavily rely on non-attorney employees to process a large number of bankruptcy cases in as quickly as possible. While bankruptcy mills advertise heavily and typically promise consumers very low costs for processing their bankruptcy case, these companies can ultimately do far more harm than good, as:

    • Uninformed or inexperienced staff handle your important financial matters.
    • Excessive caseloads for such staff increase the chances that they will not file court documents on time, not be prepared to show up to court for your case, will fail to contact your creditors or will otherwise botch an element of your case.
    • With little oversight from licensed bankruptcy lawyers, it’s far more likely that staff will handle bankruptcy cases unethically just to try to close them quickly.
    • Such practices ultimately increase the chances that your case will be denied by bankruptcy courts and that, in the process, you will spiral even further into debt.

    Some common indicators that a firm may be a bankruptcy mill that you should avoid include the following:

    • A bankruptcy lawyer is not present in your first meeting about your case.
    • The firm has a history of being admonished by the court.
    • Paperwork for your case has not been completed properly and/or has not been filed with the courts by the necessary deadlines.
    • The firm’s rates are excessively lower than rates of other bankruptcy firms (With bankruptcy, the old adage – you get what you pay for – rings true, and looking to cut corners or save a quick buck can ultimately cost debtors far more in the long run).
