I met with Robin de Leo around October/November 2012 regarding a personal bankruptcy. I was given information on various financial statements, insurance policies, etc. to gather. I was urged to file before the end the year, even offered a $200 discount, and so i did. I, along with Ms. de Leo, appeared before the bankruptcy trustee in New Orleans in January 2013. It is then, AND ONLY THEN, THAT I FIND OUT THAT WHEN I FILE MY 2012 TAX RETURNS I WILL HAVE TO TURN THEM OVER TO THE TRUSTEE!!!!!!!! Wow! So glad they enticed me to hurry up and file!!!! Had I waited to file bankruptcy AFTER i filed my taxes and spent the money, that would have been $2100.00 less that i would have had to turn over to the court. When i questioned this law firm about this and asked why they did not let me know about the fact that the court would seize my tax return, i was told..."it was in the some of the papers that we gave you."
I looked through the mountain of papers i had been given, which i had combed through many, many times because i wanted to make sure i covered all the bases, and i never saw any mention of this. Plus, with such a significant amount of money, this should have been told to me at the first visit! They needed the money at the end of the year and didn't give a damn about what happened to my tax return!!!!!!

Having to file bankruptcy was embarrassing and humiliating, at least for me. Robin and her staff treated me with dignity and respect.
I had won a judgement against a contractor for fraud involving my home after Hurricane Katrina. The attorney I was using was not as knowledgeable about bankruptcy and the outcome of my case may have been quite different.
If you have won a judgement against someone and they file bankruptcy, you need to consult with a knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney, such as Ms De Leo.
