More than 1.5 million people file for bankruptcy in the U.S. each year. We don't need to tell you that bankruptcy is bad news. Not only will it destroy your credit rating, but the stress and stigma that go along with it can be debilitating all on their own. Not to mention filing, which involves filling out more than a dozen forms and filing a petition. That's why many people and businesses choose to hire a bankruptcy attorney to help. In some cases, an attorney can even help you avoid bankruptcy altogether.
Why this list? Well, it's based on Twitter data culled according to content, follower/following ratios, frequency of tweets, blog popularity, the opinions of other bankruptcy experts and influencers, as well as our own subjective judgment.
Note: Some influential voices are not included, either because they don't have active Twitter accounts, or because they only tweet about bankruptcy sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of bankruptcy law news and insight.
