Getting the outcome you deserve for your financial situation includes having
the right legal representation in your corner. Taking time to choose an
experienced bankruptcy attorney may save you headache and frustration
down the road, and can make all the difference in the outcome of your
case. Debtors have been known to choose an attorney based on an advertisement,
price or claims in what they say you can get. Unfortunately, this doesn’t
always translate into a successful case that paves the way for future success.
You owe it to yourself and your financial future to look for a quality
attorney who can take the time to help you instead of working with someone
who gives false promises.
If you are thinking about bankruptcy, consider the following points when looking for an attorney:
- Affordability can be a factor, but you shouldn’t rely on this alone.
Even though many debtors will consider cost in choosing their attorney,
this is where the “get what you pay for” element comes into
play. You need to have a thorough understanding about where your money
is going and how you pay for services provided. Make sure you understand
terms set in the agreement. An attorney considered cheap or offering really
low prices for services compared to others in the area could be a red flag.
- Experience is important but the length of time practiced shouldn’t
be considered alone. Some attorneys have experience practicing law in
different areas, but it helps to work with someone who really is familiar
with bankruptcy law, and the unique matters involved. In other words,
consider those with limited practices who may have more focus on bankruptcy ethics.
- Choose a specialist. Being a Board Certified Specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization
is not a small feat – only a small percentage of lawyers in the
state earn this distinction. As a Bankruptcy Law Specialist, Attorney
Reed Allmand is considered an expert in this field, and is therefore equipped
with the tools and resources to handle a range of cases, including even
the most complex.
- Work with lawyers who treat you as a person, not a number. At our firm,
we know that clients come to us deeply concerned about their financial
situation and there future. We do everything we can to set them at ease,
educate them about their rights and options, and help them lay the foundation
for a brighter financial future. This is done through close communication
and personalized work, not a one-size-fits-all formula.
Choose an attorney you can be comfortable with during the filing process
and one that shows genuine interest in your concerns. You can also use
free consultation opportunities to further investigate potential candidates.
