        Recently, I came across a set of circumstances that left me baffled. LifeBack Law Firm chose to represent bankruptcy clients where the clients had an original attorney of record who refused to complete their representation in bankruptcy.

She left the clients dangling even the though she is and still is the client’s original attorney of record.
