Fort Washington, MD asked in Bankruptcy for Maryland

Q: Do you have any Pro Bono in my area or other parts close by for me to talk to and start this action?

I've called and left messages to one of the legal aid but no one has gotten back to me yet. Meanwhile looking else where or online to check other pro bono legal help, some law firms show to file bankruptcy only $500. I know that's a scam. If you know of any please by all means email me!

Thanks,

also appreciate your answer!!!!

A: Legal aid will help you prepare the documents, but probably will not be able to adequately advise you the same way an attorney would and does not actually represent you. You might end up being ok filing yourself, but so many things can go wrong that you wouldn't know about in advance. I highly suggest paying for a good attorney.
