Avoid "Bankruptcy Mills" When Filing for Bankruptcy

Posted on in Bankruptcy Attorney

With thousands of bankruptcies filed daily due to the mortgage meltdown and recession, bankruptcy attorneys in Crystal Lake, Illinois – and those across the nation – find themselves competing for business. As a result, slick advertising publicizing inferior “bankruptcy mills” has flooded daytime television with loud commercials and crammed in-boxes with unwanted spam.

Promising to provide professional bankruptcy assistance, these “mill” lawyers work for firms that employ dozens of paralegals, legal assistants and recent law school graduates whose main goal is to process as many bankruptcies as they can in as little time as possible.

Bankruptcy mills take advantage of vulnerable people who are experiencing a financial crisis, often due to foreclosure, long-term unemployment or unexpected medical bills. They will scour courthouse records to find out whose home is being foreclosed on, and then pursue them with promises of a fast bankruptcy filing to solve their financial problems.

Bankruptcy mills have questionable ethical standards, and some who have hired these bankruptcy mills report that attorneys are rarely involved in bankruptcy proceedings, and that overall client communication is poor.

Get through your bankruptcy proceedings without suffering delays and costly errors caused by inexperienced staff members. A top Crystal Lake bankruptcy lawyer is proficient with Illinois Bankruptcy Court laws and regulations, and your Illinois bankruptcy will be resolved accurately, efficiently and with a friendly, personal touch.
