5 Tips To Consider When Choosing a Bankruptcy Attorney

Mar 7, 2008
If you are thinking about filing for bankruptcy then the first that one should be doing is looking for a good bankruptcy attorney who not only knows the ins and outs of bankruptcy law but is also one who knows exactly what the procedures and steps that need to be taken in order to file for bankruptcy correctly.

In this article we provide you with a few tips, which can help you with choosing the right attorney who can help you. It is crucial that you take your time to find the right one or else you may well find it costing you a lot more in the long run.

Tip 1 - First you need to look for an attorney who is able to explain clearly all the procedures that will be undertaken when they file for bankruptcy for a client. Plus find one who is actually willing to spend time taking you through each step of the very complex bankruptcy process.

Tip 2 - It is important that you get them to provide you with a complete list of the fees that they charge for the work they do along with what services are provided by them in their fees. Ask each attorney you are considering to provide you with a complete list of their bankruptcy services and what the charges for these will be, just so you can be aware of what needs to happen and how much it costs.

Tip 3 - If you can speak with them to find out if there is anything that you can do which will actually reduce the amount of the fees that you need to pay to them, it may be worth the effort to do so. You may find that if you are able to gather all the necessary information together then your attorney may only charge you for filling out the paperwork and then filing the documents.

Tip 4 - If you are finding it difficult to decide which bankruptcy attorney to use then speak to others who are involved in the legal profession. The best person to probably ask is your own personal attorney as they may be able to either suggest someone or may be able to do it for you. If you do use your own personal attorney then you need to make sure that they understand bankruptcy law and also the procedures involved in filing at a bankruptcy court.

Tip 5 - Why not spend a day attending a bankruptcy court and observe how such attorneys work. This may well help you with getting an idea of just what kind of attorney it is you should be employing to represent you. Also whilst you are at court you will be able to get hold of a list of those attorneys who deal specifically in this kind of litigation work.

Above we have provided a few tips, which will assist you when it comes to find a suitable bankruptcy attorney to represent you during such a trying time. Also if you keep these tips in mind then you will not only find someone who understands everything about bankruptcy law and its procedures, but will ultimately end up saving you money as well.
