I would like to get personal on the subject of bankruptcy. Far too often, my clients feel a tremendous amount of sadness and shame about filing bankruptcy (hence the large jar of chocolates and tissues I keep at my desk). You don’t need to feel guilty about filing bankruptcy. I see hard working people struggling with insurmountable debt that just need a break. Let’s be real, filing bankruptcy is stressful enough, you don’t need to add in guilt. Bankruptcy statutes were written specifically for the purpose of helping people in tough economic times. If you need bankruptcy, there is nothing, absolutely nothing wrong, evil or disingenuous about availing yourself of bankruptcy protection.
If you are struggling with debt, please get the help you need!
