Q: Does your office offer free lawyer services for disabled indivduals? Had papers served and need to file bankruptcy.
A: If we offer free for disabled individuals, why not for minorities, women, transgender people, illegal aliens, and other disadvantaged groups. Then there is the senior citizen group and the underaged group, not to mention illiterate persons, or the depressed and mentally challenged, autistic, drug addicted, criminally insane... well, the list goes on. Truly, the only class left untouched would be the non-disabled part of the white male group, if there is one, which would mean free services to everyone. Lawyers have challenges also and many cannot make a living if there are entire classes of people they provide free services to. As unfortunate as it is, there are many worthy people who need things and many who would like to give, but cannot afford to. So, my office doesn't.
