Tips for Finding the Right Bankruptcy Attorney

Finding any bankruptcy attorney is easy, but find the right Bankruptcy Attorney can be challenging with so many attorneys and so much information available. Making the decision to explore bankruptcy is a big step. Before filing bankruptcy, one should research what bankruptcy attorney to use just as much as how bankruptcy works. Some believe that the attorney that files the bankruptcy is not important, but this is incorrect.

Bankruptcy can dramatically improve a person’s financial situation, but a bankruptcy done incorrectly can result in a bankruptcy client losing his or her home or possibly a lot more. There is so much on the line that the choice is an important one.

Questions when looking for the right bankruptcy attorney:

  1. Experience: Does the attorney have experience in bankruptcy? What is the attorney’s primary practice? How long has the attorney been practicing bankruptcy? Does the attorney file both chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcies?
  2. Client Feedback: Do past clients have good things to say about the attorney?
  3. Opinions of other attorneys: Do attorneys that have worked with the attorney have good things to say about the attorney? Does an attorney you know trust the attorney?
  4. Explanations about Bankruptcy: Did the bankruptcy attorney try to explain the bankruptcy process in a way you can understand? Did you walk away from the consultation knowing more about bankruptcy and feel more comfortable with your decision?
  5. Answers your Questions: During the consultation, did the attorney answer all your questions?

    Kelly, I like the idea to speak to an attorney’s past clients when deciding on a bankruptcy attorney. My brother has been struggling with a lot of financial issues these past few years. I definitely think that he should consider speaking with a bankruptcy attorney in order to plan for a better financial future.

    My husband and I are worried that we might have to declare bankruptcy, and we want to be prepared if it does happen. It’s good to know that when it comes to hiring an attorney to help us with this process, that one thing we need to do is ask the right questions. I like how you pointed out that we need to ask about their client feedback, that way we make sure that they are someone that is easy to work with.
