“PAID ATTORNEY ADVERTISEMENT: THIS WEB SITE IS A GROUP ADVERTISEMENT AND THE PARTICIPATING ATTORNEYS ARE INCLUDED BECAUSE THEY PAY AN ADVERTISING FEE. It is not a lawyer referral service or prepaid legal services plan. Total Bankruptcy is not a law firm. Total Bankruptcy does not endorse or recommend any lawyer or law firm who participates in the network.” (Emphasis Added).
I’d call it an Enough-Said moment.
But I still have this to add, at the bottom of their website it says that you can “connect with a local attorney, it’s free.” How can it possibly be free if it’s advertising? It’s not. They charge the attorneys in their network per lead. The attorney pays for the leads even if you file with someone else. That’s a lot of advertising. It’s expensive too. Trust me, they’re passing that onto you.
Because who pays for attorney advertising? The clients do, you do.
