What You Want When You Hire a Bankruptcy Lawyer

How to Know that You’ve Retained the Right Bankruptcy Counsel

What You Want When You Hire a Bankruptcy LawyerYou’ve lost your job and are struggling to find new employment. Your bills are mounting, the phone is constantly ringing and you’re afraid to go to the mailbox. It’s clear that you need to at least talk with a bankruptcy attorney, to learn what your options are and whether a personal bankruptcy filing will help you get a fresh financial start. You’ve never done this before, though, so you don’t have the first idea of what to look for when hiring a bankruptcy lawyer.

Find an Attorney Who Focuses on Bankruptcy

When you’re considering filing for bankruptcy protection, you want an attorney who does one thing and does it well. The bankruptcy rules can be complex and confusing. You want a lawyer who understands the intricate details, who understands the local bankruptcy courts and the local trustees, so that you can accomplish your objectives with minimal hassle or controversy.

Don’t Pay to Educate Your Attorney

You don’t want your lawyer cutting his or her teeth on your petition. Find an attorney who has handled a substantial number of filings.

Choose a Lawyer You Can Trust

During the course of your bankruptcy filing, you’ll be sharing private and confidential information with your attorney. You want to know that your lawyer has your best interests at heart, that he or she will listen carefully and work with you to identify and implement solutions that meet your unique needs.

Make Certain Your Attorney Has Time for You

Don’t go to a bankruptcy mill, even if the price seems right. You’ll be one of a large number of clients and you’ll likely get little to no personal service. Instead, you’ll be fitted with a “one size fits all” solution.
