Interestingly, even with the economy in such poor shape, it looks like local bankruptcy filings are staying flat or somewhat down from last year. This is only for the first quarter of the year so it is difficult to know exactly what these statistics mean for the rest of the year, but from all of the bankruptcy attorneys I talk to, it sounds like the number of potential filers is down slightly. This is good new for consumers, because they won’t have to choose between waiting months to get in to see an experienced bankruptcy attorney and choosing a less-experienced bankruptcy attorney who is available now. A couple of years ago, it might have taken a month to get in to see some of the more experienced consumer bankruptcy attorneys in Fresno. The wait should be much less now.
