Things to Remember Before Selecting a Bankruptcy Attorney

Once you begin receiving calls from creditors on a daily basis and do not see any possible way to escape your debt, it might be a good idea to contact a bankruptcy attorney. It is a good idea, however, to consider a number of different lawyers before making your final selection, as you will want to find one that meets your individual needs. Simply going with the first attorney whose advertising you come across could be a recipe for disaster, so remember the following things before making your choice.

Your Specific Needs

Some attorneys may be more concerned about rushing through your case than taking the time to handle your case properly. Fortunately, the Internet has made it easier to avoid these attorneys, as you can read some reviews online to see how each lawyer handles his or her cases. If you read multiple reviews where a lawyer has rushed through a case and has made some mistakes without considering the end result for the client, it is best to move on and find someone else to handle your case.

The Price

Some people make the mistake of allowing the cost of a lawyer become the sole factor in the selection process. This is always a mistake because you want to make sure that you get your money’s worth. If one lawyer charges less than every other option in town, there is a good chance that the attorney cuts corners and relies on quantity, rather than quality. In these cases, it is a better idea to spend a little bit more to receive comprehensive service that you can trust. Keep in mind that a good bankruptcy attorney will not give you a quote until he or she hears the details of your case.

Details in Writing

Before selecting an attorney, get a list of the services that have been agreed upon in writing. When going through a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, this agreement will be very straightforward. You should make sure that your quote includes things like consultations, follow-ups, and representation during your hearings, so that you are not left paying extra when you need your attorney the most.
