What Sets Our Bankruptcy Attorneys Apart
Large firms often use paralegals for meetings that really require the knowledge and experience of a licensed attorney. These large firms charge as much, if not more, than smaller law firms that use licensed attorneys to handle all aspects of the bankruptcy case. Using a law firm is usually not the cheapest way to file for bankruptcy.
As a small law firm, the attorneys at Littlefield Law Firm in Dallas, TX, provide personalized attention during each step of the bankruptcy process while focusing on the best low-cost solutions.

Hiring a cheap bankruptcy petition preparer who are not licensed attorneys is not a good option. Not using an experienced attorney might be the most expensive option in the long run. Only an experienced attorney can give you legal advice and make sure you are protected at every stage of the bankruptcy case.
Bankruptcy is not a good do-it-yourself project. Many people who try to represent themselves in a bankruptcy case choose the wrong type of bankruptcy or fill out the paperwork incorrectly. The federal packet is lengthy. Local courts in Dallas, Fort Worth and Plano, TX, often use their own local forms as well. Not completing all of the paperwork needed (or filling out the paperwork incorrectly) could result in the case being dismissed.
Even worse, a pro se litigant without an attorney in a bankruptcy case might not protect all of their property or know how to discharge all of their debt. Even picking the wrong time to file might prevent you from getting I.R.S. tax debts discharged in bankruptcy. The most serious problems arise when the bankruptcy trustee accuses a pro se litigant of fraud (sometimes because of an inadvertent error caused by ignorance about the requirements).
