Finding a bankruptcy lawyer isn’t a difficult task given the large
number of practitioners offering debt relief services in New York City.
But you have to stop for a moment and think, do you just want any attorney,
or do you want to find an advocate that is best suited to work on your
particular situation. Identifying a great bankruptcy attorney isn’t
nearly as easy as it may seem.

Here are some tips to guide you in your search for a
New York City Bankruptcy Lawyer:
- Before hiring an attorney, you’ll want to contact their law office
for an initial consultation. Even within the first phone call, you’ll
get an idea of the level of the law firm’s responsiveness and interest
in assisting you. Granted, good attorneys are generally very busy, but
they shouldn’t be so busy that they are entirely inaccessible. You
should think twice before engaging with any law firm that offers to sign
you up without you having the opportunity to speak with the lawyer and
determine whether your matter is a good fit for that firm.
- In the age of internet, it is relatively easy to search for reviews to
determine whether an attorney is reputable. A high level of positive feedback
over a long period of time could be taken as a sign that the law firm
is stable and that the attorney has a system of providing satisfactory
service. Conversely, a fair amount of negative feedback is a big red flag.
Furthermore, you don’t just want to make sure that your speaking
to a competent lawyer, you want to make sure the attorney has a reputation
for providing excellent service specifically in the area of bankruptcy.
- You’ll want to engage with a law office that is reasonably convenient
to where you live or work. It’s typical for a bankruptcy client
to meet with their attorney when they retain the firm, and an additional
meeting to review the petition prior to filing. As such, you’ll
want to hire an office that is accessible to you, so that you can reduce
the probability of unnecessary logistical delays.
