I’m an honest guy. When I talk with a potential client I tell people the facts and point them  in the direction that would be best for them financially based on their needs, wants and goals. Just because you talk with me does not mean that you need to file bankruptcy – nothing is written in stone. In fact 20% of the people I talk to I actually advise them NOT to file bankruptcy. I’m not afraid to turn people away from bankruptcy if it is not within their best interest. For the people out there asking should I file bankruptcy? I think you should consider filing if you are in a situation where you could really use the following:

In 2017 research was done that showed that 20 million Americans would have greatly benefited from bankruptcy had they filed https://www.ozy.com/acumen/why-20-million-americans-should-file-for-bankruptcy/90717/  for many people that research is just one of signs you should file bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is one of the most underutilized financial safety nets in our country.
