Springboard Nonprofit Bankruptcy Counselors
Our certified credit counselors understand how important your clients are to your law practice and the urgency of filing a petition. Our credit counseling management team has worked hard to prepare our certified credit counselors to help your clients facilitate their Pre-Bankruptcy Counseling requirement while educating them about budgets, spending plans and the bankruptcy process.
Counseling and education from Springboard will help your clients during their most difficult time; with bankruptcy turning their finances upside down, the financial literacy and budgeting help we offer will make it easier for them to make it through the bankruptcy process and get back on their feet quickly afterwards.
On average, the counseling process will take about 90 minutes, as required by the EOUST. Each session is confidential between your client and one of our certified counselors.
