Bankruptcy Law Rears It’s Ugly Head
Since the law change in bankruptcy in October 2005, many have found that filing for bankruptcy is no longer a guaranteed alleviation of debt. All attorneys would agree that the law change has made it a more tedious and wearing process, not only for the clients, but also for the attorney. Due Diligence, or the mandatory “reasonable investigation” of a client’s claims, is time consuming and a job within itself.
We can’t change it, so what now?
Yes, drafting petitions and Due Diligence cannot be ignored or by-passed, but we can make the best of it. Assistants At Their Best (AATB) has offered their bankruptcy processing services to attorneys nationwide. They have helped attorneys focus on what’s most important….their clients, and they realize that when change comes, you must adapt, assist, and go with the flow.
AATB (assistantsattheirbest.com) are happy to announce that in addition to drafting Chapter 7, 11, and 13 bankruptcy petitions, they are now offering due diligence. The gathering and providing of Credit Reports, Title/Lien Searches, Means Tests, Credit Counseling, and Debtor Education, by AATB, will help attorneys to stay on track and continue to provide quality service to their clients.
“We think that both the attorney and the client benefit,” explains Jacqueline, a Virtual Bankruptcy Assistant with AATB. “The attorney can remove some of the administrative weight off his/her shoulders, and the client still gets individual attention. We contact the clients, personally, when there are questions regarding the petition, and we walk them through the process every step of the way.”
