We the People Inc., a national franchiser that at one time had 1,000 offices in 30 states has gone into bankruptcy, suffering a loss of nearly $2.5 million in 2009. Yann Geron, who represents the unsecured creditors committee, was quoted as saying the remaining We the People stores are open. The franchise's web site lists eight offices operating in four states. At one time, We the People was seen as the business-model pioneer for low-cost legal services, and now its fate remains to be seen.
