I met with Mr. Bernstein to review my position prior to filing bankruptcy. As with some attorneys, he wanted paid to review my case, which was fine with me. What was so disappointing is the information he shared was very general in spite of forwarding two years of tax returns, a Balance Sheet and my company's P&L Statement. In addition, I had my personal Balance Sheet and Expenses lay out too. After an hour meeting, he charged me $700.00. Stating his rate is $495 / Hr. and it took him a half hour to review my material.
In fact, he was not familiar with my information when we met and only explained general rules of bankruptcy while not being versed on the different limitations for 2013. As I listen to him ramble on and on, his conclusion was for me to contact another attorney because he did not do very many personal bankruptcies.
I left in shock, to have paid such a large amount of money for such little value.
