Is there a Difference Between Trustees and Lawyers?
A trustee is licensed by the federal government who is an official that works with specific insolvency issues. Most trustees are chartered accountants and have experience in helping people and businesses with finical solutions. Bankruptcy lawyers are solicitors that are experts in insolvency law. Lawyers are not usually required in most standard cases. However, that may be required if a bankruptcy filing has several discrepancies.
