When searching for a bankruptcy attorney, it is important to be reminded that although bankruptcy costs are a factor, they should not be the sole determining factor. It is important to find an attorney with whom you feel comfortable sharing your financial situation and objectives. A good bankruptcy attorney will provide realistic expectations rather than guaranteeing an outcome since a court decision and a successful bankruptcy is dependent on the circumstances of each individual case.
Determine whether your bankruptcy attorney will provide personal assistance rather than delegating the work to a paralegal or secretary. No matter how simple a bankruptcy case may seem, each case should receive the attention of a specialized attorney in order to reduce any issues from arising or to prevent any oversights. In addition, you want an attorney who is willing to answer all of your questions regarding your case and will communicate the progress of your case proceedings.
