How do I choose a bankruptcy attorney?
In choosing a bankruptcy attorney, one of the best things to pay attention to is whether or not you get along with that person. That person is going to be your partner. In a Chapter 13 for three to five years. A Chapter 7 might only be three or four months, but it's going to seem like a while. It's important to have a good report, make sure that person listens to you, make sure they know what they're doing. They're not a dabbler, they are well experienced, they have knowledge in the area. One of the best things I recommend is look at the reviews. This person needs to be representing you for the for the entire case. If they're not going to return your phone call, you need to know beforehand because it's very, very hard to change horses midstream and to find a new bankruptcy attorney. Just because of how fees are done, usually, no one wants to take over a case midstream. Make sure you make the right choice from the beginning.
