Okay, so you’ve made the tough decision of filing for bankruptcy. Next, you need to find a lawyer who specializes in bankruptcy. But the next important step is to do your research and make sure that you’re choosing the best bankruptcy attorney for your needs.
Check with the North Carolina State Bar to make sure there are no records of disciplinary actions or complaints. You can search for members of the NC State Bar here. It is important to check your bankruptcy lawyer (and any lawyer, for that matter) before you hire them.
If you want to know a little bit more about the NC State Bar, here is some information from their website:
“The North Carolina State Bar was created in 1933 by the North Carolina General Assembly as the government agency responsible for the regulation of the legal profession in North Carolina. The State Bar currently regulates over 28,000 licensed lawyers. Protection of the public and protection of our system of justice are the objectives of regulation.
The North Carolina State Bar is governed by a 61-member council whose members are lawyers elected by the lawyers in their home communities. The public’s interests are represented by three members of the council who are not lawyers and who are appointed by the governor and other elected officials. Four officers are elected by the members of the council to provide leadership. The daily operations of the State Bar are carried out by a staff of over 80 lawyers and nonlawyers.”
