A “friend of a friend” filed a bankruptcy. They told me . . .
I was not certain how to begin this blog which began with the launching of my new website, http://abankruptcylawyerwhocares.com/. I decided on the topic suggested in the title because it is a phrase I have heard from many clients. Sometimes these clients are trying to change my mind about advice given to them because that is not what happened to “their friend’s friend.” I always tell those clients that their facts are different from those of “their friend’s friend.” Facts really do make a difference in the advice you receive from an experienced bankruptcy attorney in Arizona. Just because someone you know or heard about filed a chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy, it does not mean that your chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy is in any way similar, with the exception of the ultimate goal being to receive a discharge. Even the smallest fact, which may seem insignificant to you, can make a world of difference in a bankruptcy case.
In this blog, along with my website, you will see disclaimers that the information contained in this blog, or at my website, does not constitute in any way, shape or form legal advice and should not be construed as legal advice. These disclaimers are there because it is impossible to accurately assess all the possible benefits and risks to you, yourself, in filing a bankruptcy, especially if all you are doing is reading through a stranger’s website or blog. You do not even know me, and I definitely do not know you. Each person’s case is unique and should be treated uniquely. Trying to compare another person’s bankruptcy case to yours will only serve to confuse you and bring you undue stress. Of course you should and must ask questions of your attorney, because your attorney works for you, but do not make the mistake of assuming that what happened to your “friend’s friend” has any relevance to your particular case.
My blog is simply just that, a blog, a listing of observations, ideas and explanations that in no way should be construed as legal advice. Please do not quote my blog or website when you are trying to convince your attorney that he or she is wrong “because Larry’s blog said . . .”. Each person is unique in his/her pain and urgent need to deal with a unique set of facts that have caused financial difficulties. If you need your actual facts analyzed and advice tailored to your particular needs in considering the filing of a chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy, or in negotiation with a creditor, contact an experienced bankruptcy attorney in Arizona and do not just “Google” the term “bankruptcy” and accept at face value what is stated in the websites that pop up. I am not a “cookie cutter bankruptcy mill” rushing through clients to benefit myself at their expense. I have the knowledge and experience to give you expert advice based on your individual circumstances, and I have a great number of clients who will testify that I “go the extra mile” looking out for their best interests rather than my own.
