Things to Look for When hiring a Bankruptcy Attorney

lookForStruggling to pay bills and deal with debt can only last for so long. At some point you may decide that filing bankruptcy is your best choice. This is a huge decision with lasting consequences, so you’ll want the best attorney helping you through the process. Some people do file bankruptcy without an attorney, but there are risks in doing this. Bankruptcy courts require extensive documentation of your finances and debt. If you miss something, you may inadvertently disqualify yourself or end up with your case being continued. There are also many ins and outs of bankruptcy laws and things you do and do not want to do before filing and after your court date. We’re here to not only file all your documents and represent you in court, but also to counsel you along the way. We’ll help you make wise decisions that will get you back on track for a better financial future.


You don’t want to choose just any bankruptcy attorney. Do your research to ensure you find an attorney who is:


  • INFORMATIVE– A bankruptcy attorney shouldn’t just ask for documentation, file paperwork, and send you on your way. No one wants to be treated like a number or a task on a checklist. One of our jobs is to take an in-depth look at your financial situation and take an opportunity to educate you about your bankruptcy options. For some, the clean break of a Chapter 7 may be the best choice, but sometimes a Chapter 13 will be more beneficial in the long run. We’ll also discuss the possibility of debt consolidation or cutting living expenses. No matter what you decide, we are committed to making you feel valued and empowered by providing you with the information you need.


  • CONFIDENT– When you meet with a bankruptcy attorney, they should be confident that they are able to help you and also have the qualifications to back up the confidence. We’ve filed thousands of bankruptcy cases and are up to date on all the nuances of bankruptcy law. We are also well respected in the community and within the court system. We are confident that we can make a thorough assessment of your situation and represent you in court. We love seeing clients walk out of our last meeting knowing that everything is taken care of and they are finally free of suffocating debt.


  • TRUSTWORTHY AND STRAIGHTFORWARD– We’re always up front about our fees and the services that are provided, and all of this information will be given to you in writing. We strive to create a peaceful and comforting climate in our office and want to make all our interactions with you enjoyable. You’re trusting us with your private financial information and we want you to know we are trustworthy and feel honored to share in this process with you.
