What To Look For In A Bankruptcy Attorney

When you make the decision to file for bankruptcy, an important next step is figuring out who to trust to guide you through the process.There are a lot of attorneys who claim to offer bankruptcy services, but your best choice is someone that specializes specifically in bankruptcy law. Here are a few things our Waukesha bankruptcy experts recommend you consider as you make your decision.

Avoid the cheapest…and most expensive

When you’re stuck in a financially difficult situation, the last thing you want to do is spend money to fix it. There are a couple different structures for payment, including hourly rates and flat fees. When you look into payment, don’t jump for the cheapest option right off the bat. The old saying “you get what you pay for” rings true, and you may find yourself wasting money on something that doesn’t help. On the other hand, some attorneys that charge per hour for their time may drag things out in attempts to get more money.

Legal know-how

The law industry as a whole is quite broad. There’s divorce law, real estate law, corporate law, etc. In a technical sense, any lawyer can help you file for bankruptcy. Your best bet is to go with someone that has a thorough understanding and experience with bankruptcy law.

Avoid scams

Some companies may offer “quick debt relief” services, promising to rid you of your debt with a snap of your fingers. Sadly, these companies take advantage of people all too often by charging insanely high rates without doing proper work.
