Yesterday I took two telephone calls which illustrate how not to get competent legal help. The first caller wanted to be on a “first name” basis, only. The second caller was looking for a paralegal service to file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy on behalf of a corporation.
Hint: You do yourself a disservice when you demand anonymous telephonic advice, do not know who you are calling, or pre-determine the help you need. On most days, I would have spent the time to coax these callers into giving me the information I needed to determine if I could help them. Yesterday was not one of those days.
