Most Bankruptcies Filed in New York State
There are a number of large bankruptcy law firms that would love to claim this title, and there is no shortage of bankruptcy mills boasting about their vast annual filings. However, when it comes to bankruptcy attorneys bigger isn’t always better in New York City. We are a boutique firm, and while we are busier than ever we aren’t in the business of carelessly cranking out bankruptcy cases. We insist on meeting with our clients in a face to face meeting. We don’t guarantee results, but we do have a 100% Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge record in New York City as of 3/24/2014 because we treat each case as though it were our only case.
When you get big, you can get sloppy. If you get sloppy as a lawyer it could get you and your clients in trouble. One of the biggest bankruptcy firms in New York City with offices in all 50 states just went out of business this month and ironically was forced into bankruptcy themselves. Jacobey & Meyers LLC probably filed as many if not more bankruptcy cases than just about any other firm in New York State (except for their own bankruptcy case of course.) But having so many clients just means there were more people left hanging when they went out of business. Clients with active bankruptcy cases were left in the lurch and there are a lot of unhappy people not sure what to do next according to Facebook and the BBB. Big firms expose themselves to risky practices, and it’s usually only a matter of time before they make a mistake like accepting a credit card over the phone or filing a case they shouldn’t have.
Small firms that give you the chance to consult with the attorney handling your case never seem to have the types of problems big bankruptcy mills run into. A bankruptcy attorney is probably the most important professional consultant you will ever need in your life. With your whole financial future on the line it pays for you to get to know and find the right attorney for your bankruptcy case. The right attorney in turn knows that it pays to treat your case as uniquely as you are in order to get the best result for their firm. The big bankruptcy law firms that are hurried and detached from their clients are the ones with consumer issues, trust us were taking notes.
