I recently had a client from Tipton County who needed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. He desperately wanted to get out of debt, and time was of the essence.
But he had some problems. The biggest: It appeared he wouldn’t qualify.
Sometimes when you’re above a certain income level, bankruptcy lawyers will assume you need a Chapter 13 bankruptcy – which sets up a payment plan for your debts – rather than a Chapter 7. But this man wouldn’t benefit from a payment plan and clearly wanted and needed a Chapter 7.
Other firms would have turned him away instantly. There’s no doubt in my mind. But we work hard for our clients, and we’re always willing to go the extra mile. Here’s what we found after we did some digging:
This man had 5 children and owned his own business. His expenses weren’t all obvious, and many of them were allowable under the bankruptcy code. So actually he DID qualify for Chapter 7.
It took a lot of work to figure this out, and we don’t bill by the hour. But we know that if we use every possible means, we can often get the client what they need. It just takes extra time – something not all law firms are willing to give at their own expense. I pride myself in our staff’s willingness to go the extra mile for the people of Memphis, and Tipton County along with it.
