4 Pillars & Legal line Partnership

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA, August 1, 2018 – 4 Pillars Consulting Group and Legal Line announce partnership to increase support to more Canadians facing crushing debt.

4 Pillars and Legal Line are pleased to announce they have established a formal partnership in order to increase support for Canadians confronting financial crisis.

Currently, under Canada’s Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, debtors do not have an exclusive advocate and are at risk of lawsuits and other legal actions. Licensed Insolvency Trustees (LIT’s) who hold legal responsibility for administering under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act are limited to two options (consumer proposals and bankruptcy) and must exercise caution in the advice they can provide to debtors during their initial discovery into the debt options.

Through this new partnership, 4 Pillars debt consultants will offer a free consultation to all Legal Line referrals. As part of this consultation, 4 Pillars will provide independent, unbiased information to debtors that includes:

• Information on the consumer proposal and bankruptcy processes;
• A review of other potential solutions including credit counselling, consolidation loans, re-financing, support from family and friends, sale of assets;
• Improved budgeting and debt repayment strategies, and;
• Increased awareness in how to rebuild a strong credit rating.

This partnership acknowledges that for many, a financial crisis can be resolved long before legal action begins, and creditors file a lawsuit. In addition, Legal Line will be offered as a valuable resource for legal advice and support as part of the 4 Pillars service offering. Those who still need to speak with a professional will be referred to a specific lawyer, government office, or other professional who is trained on that specific issue.

Through this partnership, the debtor will receive much needed information about their rights and options, protecting their ability to make fully informed decisions in their best interests, at one of the most stressful times in their life.

I learned about Legal Line thru 4 Pillars Head Office. The fliers and guides will be given out to clients that come to our office. Quiet often we get clients in our office that have legal issues in their situation that we aren’t qualified to answer and they can’t afford to go talk to a lawyer so this will help them tremendously. It will also be a help to us as we come across different situations regularly that we need advice on ourselves.
