The decision to file for Bankruptcy is never an easy one to make. The actual process of qualifying to file Bankruptcy can be even more difficult, but you have freedom to choose legal guidance to smooth the rough edges and to make this experience as painless as possible.


As you may already know, some lawyers and attorneys have a bad name for caring more about their own fees than their client’s cases. Luckily, this isn’t always the case and there are a number of ways to screen Bankruptcy lawyers to avoid the bad jokes.


When you call a Bankruptcy attorney, pay attention to the response and timeliness.


If an attorney is busy, you may be asked to leave a message and your call will be returned. The information are you asked to leave in the message, and the amount of time you wait before receiving a call are key things to take note of.


Ideally, you should look for a Bankruptcy attorney who can respond to your call quickly and will gather all necessary information required to review your case just as quickly. If a Bankruptcy attorney charges by the hour, you want each minute of their time to count for you!


Let’s not forget accreditation…


Clearly, you want a Bankruptcy lawyer who is licensed, qualified, and experienced in Bankruptcy. Sometimes a referral is the best way to find the most reliable service provider, but if you don’t know where to ask for a Bankruptcy attorney you can use your own best judgment on how credible a prospect is based on what their focused areas of practice are, and how they approach your unique circumstances.


Friendliness counts, even with a Lawyer!


Just because he (or she) is a Bankruptcy lawyer, nobody should ever talk down to you or make you feel inadequate. It is perfectly acceptable to hang up on somebody who does not appear friendly and nice, because the relationship you form with any attorney should be a strong bond. It’s your money and your life, so choose somebody you can trust to show you respect.


Choose a Lawyer Who You Can Trust


There may be many big name Bankruptcy lawyers in your area, with a slick sales pitch and no true compassion as a human being. You may have to question if there are any corporate agendas with these firms, and your safest bet is always in a family owned legal firm who’ll focus on helping you. Choose a lawyer who will personally understand your situation, and take the time to get involved.


The Bankruptcy attorney whom you deal with in the office should also be the same lawyer who is working on your case, and the same lawyer who will attend hearings with you. Will the lawyer start preparations on your case immediately, show you his work product, stay in touch with you throughout the case, and give you a personal guarantee?? Reinherz does all of the above!!


Look for a Bankruptcy attorney who is flexible to your unique needs


One of the most frustrating aspects of seeking legal help can be in the hours. If you have a full time job, working 9am to 5pm from Mon-Fri, it can be challenging to find a law office open when you’re out of work.
For a number of reasons, it’s helpful to find any Bankruptcy attorney who shows flexibility in their schedule to accommodate your unique needs.


The Cost of a Bankruptcy attorney


When filing for Bankruptcy, the cost of legal help is especially important. Many lawyers can be mysterious or vague about their rates, and this is an automatic red flag that you should look elsewhere.


Yes, it might be costly to file for Bankruptcy but when you know the facts upfront, you can prepare yourself for the reality without any surprises down the road. Feel free to ask your attorney about the cost of their services, and allow their response to help you determine if they are the right match for you.


Please note that a Bankruptcy attorney will need to collect important information in order to determine the actual cost to provide a quote. If you qualify for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, for example, then there are many specific factors which will affect the actual cost.


It’s worth mentioning that no initial fee is required for consulting or retaining an attorney from our office.
