Is the lawyer
reputable in the area of bankruptcy law?
In the age of the internet, it's easy to google a lawyers name and
see what people have to say about them. Although a law firm's website
might have testimonials from prior client's, reviews on third-party
websites may have more credibility. In addition to google reviews, there
are websites such as Avvo.com, Martindale.com, and others that provide
a platform for former client's to review their attorneys. By reading
reviews you can get a pretty good idea as to whether client's are
satisfied with the level of service they received. When hiring a bankruptcy
lawyer, you want to be able to count on your lawyer to be accessable and
smoothly guide you through the process. Don't compromise on hiring
a lawyer with a questionable reputation.

Every bankruptcy filer has their own unique circumstances, so it's
important to find a lawyer that has the right experience for your situation.
Some people are struggling with credit card debts, while others have tax
debts, student loans, and mortgage arrears. Some lawyers focus on consumer
bankruptcies, such as chapter 7 and chapter 13's, while other lawyers
gear their practice towards re-organizing financially distressed businesses.
Research the attorney to determine whether they handle the type of bankruptcy
you require, and when speaking with the attorney, pose to them any particular
concerns you have about your case. Doing so will give you a good idea
as to whether an attorney is a good fit for your case.
Is the law firm in a convenient location for your needs?
While reputation and experience are very important, it's also imperative
that your bankruptcy attorney is accessable. Hence, many people specifically

also be interim meetings to drop-off documents and to discuss the file.

to where they live or work, so that they can stop by without unneccesary hassle.
