Taking the plunge to file for bankruptcy is not an easy decision to make.

With the right attorney by your side, filing for bankruptcy does not have to be a daunting process. To ensure that you have the right attorney in your corner, continue reading to learn the best questions to consider before hiring a bankruptcy lawyer.

Does the attorney primarily practice bankruptcy law?

It is important that you retain the services of an attorney who solely or predominantly practices bankruptcy law. Though there may be many attorneys who will take on your bankruptcy case, it is important that they have dedicated experience handling cases such as yours. The Law Offices of Allen K. Kolber, Esq. has nearly exclusively dealt with bankruptcy cases in Rockland County for years.

Does your attorney make you feel comfortable?

If your attorney checks off your first checklist box, it is time to consider the next. Your attorney may be qualified to represent your best interests, but is there trust between the two of you? Trust is the cornerstone of all attorney-client relationships. This is why it is important that you leave your attorney’s office feeling confident and at ease. If there is any feeling of discomfort or a hunch that your attorney is not trustworthy, there is likely a good reason behind these feelings.

How is the attorney ranked on Google?

Like any service, it is routine practice to check online for reviews before you make the decision to spend your money.

This same reasoning should be applied to your attorney search.
