If you’ve decided to file for bankruptcy, good for you! The first step is already done. So, what’s next? You’ll need to hire an attorney specializing in bankruptcy cases. How do you find the perfect bankruptcy attorney for you and your unique needs?
After your initial search of bankruptcy lawyers near you, you’ll want to interview your potential attorney. Ask enough questions to be confident in their ability, and make sure that they care about helping you solve your problem. Make sure that your potential lawyer thinks you’re a qualified candidate for bankruptcy; they will talk through your decision with you in order to figure out whether you should file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 (or any others!). Then, get to the interview process.
Here are a few questions to get you started:
- How many bankruptcy cases have you done, and what types?
- How large is your practice or affiliate firm? (Single-proprietor and boutique firms might provide a personal touch, but sometimes larger firms have more resources to offer. Think about this as you’re choosing your attorney, depending on how complex your case is.)
- How quickly will you return calls? What’s your policy about charging for phone calls?
- How hands-on will you be with my case? Will you file all my paperwork? Will you come with me to court?
After the interview, think about whether or not the lawyer listened to you and your concerns. Did they seem trustworthy? Competent? Ready to help?
