Tips for Selecting the Right Bankruptcy Attorney
The decision to file for bankruptcy can be a difficult choice, so don’t make it more difficult by hiring the wrong bankruptcy attorney. Here are some tips to consider when selecting an attorney.
1. Do not wait until the last minute! If you have a foreclosure, wage garnishment or an emergency deadline you will want to hire an attorney as soon as possible.
2. If you know someone who has filed for bankruptcy, ask them about their experience with their attorney. At the very least you may be able to find out which attorneys not to hire.
3. Ask for referrals from professionals that you know such as your accountant or another attorney. Our firm receives referrals from family law attorneys, CPA’s, bankruptcy Trustees and bankruptcy attorneys.
4. Attend your local 341 meetings and see how attorneys interact with the Trustee and their clients. Take note if the cases are concluded or resolved.
