Helpful Bankruptcy Office Forms

Because this website is focused around helping consumers, you’ve probably seen very little talk on here about one of our other passions, helping lawyers become better bankruptcy lawyers. We believe strongly in paying it forward because we were once clueless about bankruptcy law as well. We’re indebted to some truly selfless mentors who not only helped us learn the law but also allowed us to peek behind the curtain to see how a proper bankruptcy law firm is run. That’s why when we’re not at the office or court, you can usually find us sharing our consumer bankruptcy experience at seminars, conferences, or coffee shops. At a recent “Bankruptcy Basics” talk I was giving, it was suggested that we start a place on our website to share some of the bankruptcy resources our office uses instead of emailing to new bankruptcy lawyers as they ask. This will be that place… with a couple caveats.
