I am reminded often of how we go the distance with clients at Kain & Scott. Part of our job at Kain & Scott is to make sure the client has the best fresh start possible. Sometimes that means bringing claims on behalf of the client without charging the client. In fact, at Kain & Scott, we often bring objections, responses, and motions and then attend the hearings on behalf of the client all for free. Why do we do this? Because it is the right thing to do. Sometimes these claims would cost the client far more in attorney’s fees than they are worth pursuing. I think the creditors and trustees often know this so these claims remain just that, claims.
However, if we are to fulfill our responsibility to protect the client and protect their claims and to obtain the best fresh start possible for the client, that oftentimes means bringing actions and attending hearings for no cost. We hear the stories all the time; my lawyer would not do this without charging an extra (fill in the blank) or my lawyer did do this but it cost me (fill in the blank). The trouble with this is this: is the client really getting a fresh start my expending enormous sums of money to protect these smaller claims? I think not.
It does not matter to Kain & Scott who is offended when we protect the client and their claims, we still pursue them. If it means that maybe the client’s student loan would get paid down more, wonderful, we do it. If it means the client ends up with more money to be able to buy groceries or pay the rent/mortgage, we do it. As long as it is the right thing to do, we do it.
