Bankruptcy Filer Without Attorney Unsuccessful in Completely Avoiding Lien

| Oct 30, 2015 | Bankruptcy |

Terren Curtis thought he was smart enough to act as his own attorney in a bankruptcy case. Admittedly he was pretty smart; smart enough to appeal a bankruptcy court decision to the U.S. District Court. Unfortunately, he still lost his appeal. Mr. Curtis simply did not have the ability to properly prepare a Motion to Avoid a Judicial Lien. As a result, he ran out of chances to fix what he filed and was unable to avoid the proper amount of the lien. As a result, it remained attached to his real property. Mr. Curtis’ case is just one example of how hiring an experienced bankruptcy lawyer to handle your bankruptcy case is a wise investment.
