Unfortunately, not every business succeeds. If your business doesn't perform well and you're forced to consider bankruptcy, it can be a very frustrating and emotional time. But the bankruptcy process provides some light at the end of the tunnel. Bankruptcy is designed to help you wind down your business while mitigating the financial fallout. In some cases, you can file for business bankruptcy without shutting down the business.
If you're among those filing for bankruptcy protection, you might feel like the last thing you can afford is a business bankruptcy lawyer. But you might not have a choice. Sole proprietors can file on their own, but other types of businesses are legally required to have a lawyer file their bankruptcy. And even if you are a sole proprietor, hiring a business bankruptcy lawyer still makes sense. A good bankruptcy lawyer will ensure that you've considered all the alternatives to bankruptcy, filed the correct forms, and dealt appropriately with all creditors. This will save you time and money in the long run.
Although bankruptcy is a challenging and emotional process, a good business bankruptcy lawyer can minimize the damage so you can quickly get back on your feet. Puritan Faust will walk you through this process, explaining each step to you along the way. Call today to see how we can help you regain peace of mind.
