What To Look for In a Bankruptcy Attorney
Posted on Tuesday, March 4th, 2014
There are few things in life more stressful than bankruptcy. This is a time when you and possibly your family may feel embarrassed, upset, anxious and fearful of the future. It is very important that you hire the right attorney to help you with your bankruptcy. Amerio Law in Sacramento provides you with the compassionate and caring help you need to guide you through this stressful time.
What should you look for in a bankruptcy attorney? Here are a few tips to help you:
1) A bankruptcy attorney should be willing to answer your questions. You should seek a different attorney if you are uncomfortable talking to your lawyer. A bankruptcy attorney should do nothing but support you during this time and answer any questions you may have about your proceedings. You should never feel that you must be satisfied with no answers or evasive answers to your questions.
2) A bankruptcy attorney should be familiar with bankruptcy law. Just as certain doctors focus their practices on brain surgery, pediatrics or skin diseases, certain lawyers focus their practices on various areas of the law. An attorney who handles a number of bankruptcies may be better able to understand the complexities of your case and handle them effectively than a lawyer with little experience in this field.
3) A bankruptcy attorney should be realistic and honest. It is not a lawyer’s place to tell you that you can keep all of your assets and not pay any money to your creditors. Instead, a good bankruptcy attorney is honest with you about what you should expect from the different types of bankruptcy. There are many cases where an attorney must help a debtor make a decision regarding the type of bankruptcy to file or the treatment of a particular asset. It helps the debtor in the long run if the attorney is honest about the probable outcomes of each course of action.
