More and more these days, drivers can see the faces and names of so-called "attorneys" on billboards around their city. But who are these people? What's the real difference between large law offices and trusted local attorneys with roots in the community?
In this blog, we'll examine a little about how large law firm legal services work and why they come up short compared to local attorneys such as The Law Office of Veronica Deaver.
Big Firms & Their Practices
The Bottom Line on Big City Firms
Big law firms have one goal in mind: the bottom line. Profits drive their work more than any other driver–perhaps all other drivers, combined.
Big firms are structured around the partners, who are all part-owners in the firm. Each partner–as a part-owner–shares in the firm’s profits each quarter or annual period. That’s why, when watching TV, you hear all about that character who’s trying to ‘make partner’–and why they often come to realize, at the end of the story, that there’s more to life than money.
Just Another Number
This isn’t to say that big firms don’t care about their clients or their outcomes. Businesses focused on profits must focus on their products and customer service. And big-firm lawyers certainly care about their track record.
However, to them, you’re just a number, another win or loss on their record. They have little personal stake in the outcome of your case. They have dozens of clients, just like you, for whom they work with unfeeling efficiency.
Bankruptcy Courts Don’t Care About The Name
Big firms can wield great influence on certain types of cases. We all know about the celebrity clients and lawyers and their cases that sweep the nation’s media outlets for months on end.
But when it comes to bankruptcy law, the courts, judges, and circuits simply do not care. The cases are cut and dry. There’s no secret stash of evidence, flashy objection, or last-minute witness testimony that leaves the courtroom audience gasping before flashing cameras.
Which is to say, big firms and their much-lauded lawyers wield little influence on local bankruptcy circuits, where relationships and experience are key.

Local Attorneys Like Us Specialize in Bankruptcy
More likely than not, the big-firm lawyer in Fort Worth practices many areas of law. They might have bounced around their firm for years, finding their ‘true calling.’ Or, they’ve been relegated to bankruptcy court as inexperienced lawyers who are not ready for the more prestigious cases.
For The Law Office of Veronica Deaver, bankruptcy law has nothing to do with prestige. We’re not in the business of fame or notoriety. We do this work because we’re from North Texas, and we’ve seen what debt can do to people. We’ve seen how it can ruin lives. We’ve seen it happen to friends, family, and loved ones.
We only talk about our experience and success because it matters that you work with a bankruptcy attorney with the right relationships, understanding, and experience in the McKinney-area bankruptcy circuit. We want success not for our local law office but for our clients, who are part of our community here in North Texas.
With a local attorney like Veronica Deaver, you get a bankruptcy lawyer you can count on to provide 110% effort to protect you from unscrupulous creditors and an uncertain future.
