If you’re considering filing bankruptcy, chances are that your budget is tight. Plus, it may seem like a reasonable way to cut your expenses is by representing yourself in your bankruptcy. While we don’t usually recommend it, filing pro se can make sense in some situations. Therefore, if you have a legal background or considerable experience working in bankruptcy, this could improve your chances of success in bankruptcy without an experienced Las Vegas bankruptcy attorney.
Also, if your case is relatively simple, i.e., you live entirely off of social security income and have few assets, you might be able to get by without attorney representation. Additionally, may also wish to hire a document preparer, who will draft your petition, but all other legal responsibilities will be your own. Otherwise, you will have a better chance of discharging your debts when represented by an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
