The email said: ” We saw you two months ago about bankruptcy. The foreclosure is Tuesday. Can you help?”
I wanted to reply: “Where have you been in the past two months? What were you thinking to wait til now to start filing bankruptcy?”
Instead I said: “Bring information, money and be here in two hours.” But what are people thinking to wait til the last minute?
If, as so many clients say, saving the house is the most important thing, why gamble by waiting to within hours of the actual foreclosure sale to move to file bankruptcy? Why aren’t your actions (to save the house) consistent with your statements (about the importance of the house)?
Bankruptcy lawyers, especially experienced ones, are few in number and generally overwhelmed with work. Don’t count on finding available legal help at the last minute.
Here endeth the rant.
