Is a Bankruptcy Lawyer Worth it?

Is a Bankruptcy Lawyer Worth it?

Posted By Dethlefs Pykosh & Murphy || 1-Jan-2018

For someone filing for bankruptcy, whether it be Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, the last thing on his or her mind is spending the additional money on a lawyer. Though you may have heard a great way to save money in this process is by representing yourself in your bankruptcy, this isn’t the case. Filing for bankruptcy without a strongminded and experienced Harrisburg bankruptcy attorney, such as ours at Dethlefs Pykosh & Murphy, can be disastrous for you and your financial situation.

One of the primary reasons this may be a mistake on your part is because you will be prone to missing certain aspects of your filing, or filing incorrectly. Additionally, bankruptcy is complicated--self-representation through this process may lead you to being misunderstood by the courts, or otherwise failing to adequately present your case. If there is a dismissal of your case, as well as any other negative outcomes, your Harrisburg bankruptcy lawyer will advise you on how to best proceed.

You will also rest assured you are in the hands of a professional during your Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 confirmation or reaffirmation hearing. Therefore, any expenses saved by not enlisting our services will never amount to the peace of mind, time saved, and other benefits of having a legal team on your side.
