Americans love a good movie; particularly a good courtroom drama or a good lawyer played by a Hollywood celebrity. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a good bit of fiction and in some cases, the reality may not fall too far from the fictional story presented on the big screen. The need for caution comes when individuals who find themselves in real life financial crises expect their bankruptcy process to be similar to the previous legal experiences in the comfy seats at the local movie theater.
Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and Matthew McConaughey aren’t actually lawyers (let alone bankruptcy lawyers). The financial crisis that led you to consider filing for bankruptcy has absolutely nothing in common with the fictional details presented in their cinematic works of art. Appreciate the movies – regularly. Just don’t use them to create expectations for your own legal issues.
When it comes to filing for bankruptcy, you’ll want a real life bankruptcy expert. When it comes to choosing your real life bankruptcy attorney, you should demand a few things:
- Extensive knowledge of California Bankruptcy Code
- A Specialization in Bankruptcy
- Availability: You Should have an Email and Phone Number that Gets a Response
When it comes to dealing with bankruptcy in real life – remember that it’s not just any life you are hearing about or seeing represented for your entertainment. This is your life we’re talking about. It’s not for anyone’s entertainment. Call the bankruptcy attorneys at Westgate Law today – and then maybe sneak off to the movie theater to relax a bit.
