When you're thinking about filing for bankruptcy, hiring the right lawyer can make all the difference. Though many lawyers may claim to be bankruptcy experts, find someone who fits all the criteria listed below to make sure you're hiring someone truly trustworthy.
Bankruptcy law is a complex legal area. When choosing a bankruptcy attorney, find someone who has been practicing for at least 10 years and has helped many people before you. Even the best education can't substitute for experience. Bankruptcy law is filled with traps and pitfalls and using a lawyer who lacks sufficient experience may make your situation worse! Don't be a victim twice.
Because of bankruptcy's complexity, it is important to make sure your attorney truly knows what he is doing. Many lawyers practice in a wide variety of areas, but they don't really master any of them. Your bankruptcy lawyer should ideally concentrate on bankruptcy law and master it's intricacies instead of trying to practice in many disparate legal areas.
Too often, large law firms do not give clients the attention they need. They may assign a paralegal to handle a case instead of a lawyer. No matter how skilled a paralegal is, it is simply not the same as having direct attorney oversight. Your bankruptcy lawyer should be able to give your case the attention you deserve. Your financial life is important to you, and it should be important to your attorney, too. Be sure you select an attorney who will give your case the attention it deserves and be available to answer your questions.
