Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi and thank you for your question. In the future, you can request me to answer any further questions.
The attorney would most not likely let you do that, since they have a due diligence requirement to the court.
Now, you can advertise and give leads to the attorney, sure.
But no attorney would let you use their name to file cases, opens up too much liability.
The attorney has duties to clients, and by signing their name, even electronically, they are stating as well that they have done a reasonable investigation into the truth of the documents. In your scenario, they would not have done that.
If you are an attorney, if licensed to practice in that district, you can file documents, and hire a local attorney to appear on your behalf. That's about it.
Thanks for your question, good luck to you.
