Tips to Finding a Bankruptcy Lawyer

So you have decided that perhaps it’s time to consider filing for bankruptcy but don’t know where to begin.  Your first step is to find a bankruptcy lawyer in Miami  .    Deciding on who to hire or who to have a consultation with is not something that you regularly do, so here are a few tips to help you find an attorney.

Internet
One of the easiest way to look for a bankruptcy lawyer is to use google or bing and just type in bankruptcy attorney or lawyer in your area.   Don’t pick the attorney based on his or her website, rather look to see that the site is informative and the attorney has reviews or testimonials to show that he or she actually practices bankruptcy law.

Bankruptcy Experience
Some attorney websites begin my telling you that the firm has 30, 40 maybe even 50 years of experience, however that experience may be in something other than bankruptcy law.  Make sure your attorney actually files Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases.   Your attorney needs to be familiar with all the trustees and their requirements in the area you are looking to file.

Follow Up:
You want to hire an attorney that you will be able to get a hold of and will actually be the person who attends court with you.  If at your consultation you spend the majority of your time with a paralegal, then likely you won’t have that type of attorney who will personally respond to your emails and calls.
