There are many myths about bankruptcy. Many of my potential clients have been scared into thinking that they will lose everything they own and never be able to get credit if they file for bankruptcy.

Despite all of our assurances, the fear that myths have instilled in our clients will rarely cause someone to withhold information about assets and debts.
