If you need quality legal support from a caring and effective law firm, contact Tomes & Hanratty, P.C. for a consultation today.

What makes a good bankruptcy attorney?

Competence:  Ask if the attorney is a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA). Members of this organization are attorneys who specialize in protecting the rights of the people in debt. Being a member of this organization means that the firm has extensive training in protecting debtors. You need that kind of experience and knowledge on your side.

Experience:  Look for an attorney with many years of experience in consumer and small business bankruptcy law. Choose someone who has earned the respect of other bankruptcy attorneys, the trustees, and the judges.

Communication:  Schedule a consultation. After the meeting, you should feel comfortable with the attorney you spoke with and walk away with the feeling that you have had your questions answered in a way you understand. You want to feel like you have taken the first step toward freedom from debt.

Thinking Outside the Box: You should know that your lawyer is going to pursue non-standard remedies in addition to just filling out the bankruptcy forms. Non-standard remedies (in bankruptcy and before bankruptcy) can make it easier for you keep your house, your car, and your possessions. They can make it easier for you to start fresh after a bankruptcy. They can also include actions that gain you income such as suing creditors for improper and aggressive collection tactics. We will explain the full range of options you can use.

Compassion: We know how difficult bankruptcy can be.  You should feel that your lawyer empathizes with the pain of losing a home, the worry of having a car repossessed, and the anxiety of losing a job. Select a law firm where the lawyers speak with you in person, instead of having their assistants do the bulk of the work.
