From the Bankruptcy Law Network blog of Rhode Island Bankruptcy Lawyer Mark Buckley:
“In my small state of Rhode Island, there are 5,878 licensed attorneys.  RI only has a population of 1,050,788 people.  That is one lawyer for every 178 people. 
Because each attorney is licensed in the general practice of law, he can represent just about any matter that comes through the door. He can handle a murder case on Monday, a speeding ticket matter on Tuesday, and decide on Wednesday to start a bankruptcy practice. 
With this horrible economy, many general practice lawyers have done just that.  Print new business cards, rent a huge billboard and declare their bankruptcy practice OPEN FOR BUSINESS.
Bottom line: there is no shortage of lawyers willing to take your bankruptcy case.  But which lawyer should you hire?”
