Orlando Bankruptcy Attorneys, Clark & Washington, Speak Out About Lenny Bruce's Filing for Bankruptcy

Clark & Washington stresses that bankruptcy can happen to anyone, including revolutionary comedians like Lenny Bruce. If and when this does happen, it's important to remember there is always hope after financial struggles.

    NORCROSS, GA, December 20, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Clark & Washington, the best bankruptcy attorneys in Orlando, want to note the importance of appropriately managing your finances. The firm uses Lenny Bruce's financial troubles and forced bankruptcy as a reminder that even successful people can have financial troubles, and that it is possible to come back from this devastation.

Lenny Bruce was a popular, albeit radical, comedian in the 1960s, who was as famous for his obscene and offensive comedy as he was for his scams and money problems. Bruce found no topic taboo, often speaking out on politics, sex and religion and using slang for such topics on stage. His blunt speech caused him a great deal of trouble, as Bruce found himself arrested for obscenity, a trial which eventually led to his acquittal and protection for future generations of comedians' first amendment rights.

However, it's Bruce's financial troubles to which Orlando bankruptcy attorneys, Clark & Washington, want Orlando residents to pay attention. Bruce was forced into bankruptcy after several money-making scams. Trying to keep his wife from stripping again, Bruce set out to make as much money as he could, developing several scams; one which found Bruce posing at a priest collecting money for a leper colony.

Clark & Washington asks residents who are facing bankruptcy to consider their services before reaching such extreme lengths as Bruce. If you are facing financial troubles, consider speaking with a member of their team before developing a reputation like Bruce's that ignores the other things he's accomplished in his life.

While Bruce was acquitted for his charity scam and eventually his obscenity trial, he died before he would see this come to pass.

Many people can unexpectedly find themselves in dire straits and bankruptcy as a result, even successful comedians. The expert Orlando personal bankruptcy lawyers at Clark & Washington can help local residents with their professional bankruptcy services.
