I got a fax yesterday from someone who said he had been given my name by an outfit called “Legal Helpers.” He said they were not attorneys and that they were helping him prepare his own bankruptcy without an attorney. He seemed to think that somehow I was associated with them. Please let the record reflect that I am not.
I have nothing to do with them. In addition I want to say that anyone trying to file their own bankruptcy without a lawyer is taking a very serious risk. To anyone who is trying to do that: please don’t rely on anything I have posted on my web site or anywhere else. Nothing written or provided by me is intended for do-it-yourself use, and trying to use my material that way could lead you to disaster. My web pages are nothing but a few general comments, not intended to be any sort of an exhaustive treatise.
