Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring a Bankruptcy Attorney

Filing for bankruptcy is a frightening time in many individual’s lives, especially if they recently received a foreclosure notice or any other threatening letter from collectors. However, with the right attorney by your side, filing for bankruptcy does not have to be a nightmare. Here at our Rockland County bankruptcy firm, we want to ensure that you are truly ready to partner with us before jumping into the bankruptcy process, and to do so, you should ask yourself the following questions regarding whether an attorney is the right one for you:

Does the attorney primarily practice bankruptcy law?

If you are someone who is prepared to go through the bankruptcy process, the very first thing you should look for is an attorney who either solely, or predominantly, practices bankruptcy law. This is because while many attorneys will take your bankruptcy case, it does not mean they know the ins and outs of bankruptcy law as a bankruptcy attorney would. You wouldn’t hire a plumber to fix your car, so don’t hire a personal injury attorney to handle your bankruptcy case. Our firm has nearly exclusively dealt with bankruptcy cases in Rockland County for years.

Does your attorney make you feel comfortable?

Of course, the main reason anyone hires an attorney is that they believe that the attorney is qualified to represent their best interests. That being said, trust is the cornerstone of all attorney-client relationships, which is why you should leave your attorney’s office feeling more comfortable than when you entered. When you choose us, you will feel peace of mind knowing we are always available to answer each of your questions, and that we are constantly working in your best interests through every step of the legal process ahead.

How is your prospective attorney ranked on Google?

If you have plans to go out for dinner, there is a very good chance you will check that restaurant’s online reviews before deciding that is where you want to spend your money and time. This is completely understandable, and this same sort of reasoning should apply to the attorney you select as well. Our firm maintains a near-5-star rating on Google, which is a testament to our hard work and dedication to our clients in Rockland County and throughout New York State.
